Hello there,

Yes, you can. If you’re not sure, I’d recommend you to do full backup before updating.

In order to achieve that objective, could you please try to do the following?

  1. Install and activate the Header and Footer Scripts plugin
  2. Go to Settings > Header and Footer Scripts panel
  3. Paste the following code into the “Scripts in footer:”
<script>
(function($){
      
    "use strict";
  
    $(window).on('load resize', function() {


        var wHeight = $(window).height();
        var newHeight = wHeight/2;

        $('#slideshow').css({
          'max-height': newHeight + 'px'
        });


    });  


})(jQuery);
</script>
  1. Save settings

You would need to clear your browser’s cache before reloading your site.

Let me know how it goes. I’ll wait to hear back from you regarding your stats.
