Ian Patrick Hines

Ian Patrick Hines is the founder and CEO of Hines Digitalan award winning, internationally renowned, conservative digital agency that’s out to beat the left at their own game by out-hustling, out-organizing, and out-fundraising them.

From November 2012 – November 2013, Ian was a NationBuilder Tech Organizer, during which time he became one of the world’s foremost NationBuilder experts. He’s now helping campaigns and organizations get the most out of their nations as a certified NationBuilder Expert & Architect.

Prior to joining NationBuilder, he spent nine years in Maryland politics where he served in nearly every role from field organizer to communications director. In 2003, when online organizing was new and unproven, he managed the GenDean Blog — at just 17-years old — and his 2010 article on the potential impact of Square on political fundraising was featured on The New York Times' Bits Blog.

A fourth-generation Marylander, he currently lives in Severna Park, Maryland with his wife Christy and their three children: Oliver, Moira and Henry.

You’ll need to edit the _features.html template in the NationBuilder theme, and adjust the corresponding styles in the theme.scss and tablet-and-desktop.scss stylesheets.

Yeah… I’d love to see all of the Shopify filters / tags work (excluding obviously irrelevant objects, etc.)… mostly just so you know with certainty that you can rely on them. The guesswork is what’s frustrating, because you know that there’re more filters available than those documented above.

David — In your particular case, adding the following line to your theme.scss file should center the slides (but not the captions):

#slides .slides_container {text-align: center;}

My recommendation, however, would be to instead use larger slides and keep the theme as-is. If you use slides that are 1010px wide, they’ll fit to the full-width of the page.

If you’re interested, I wrote a somewhat in-depth blog post explaining my thinking behind this version of my personal portfolio.

It’s built entirely on NationBuilder, and is based on my custom theme framework called NationBuilder Foundation.
