This product sits in a website's 'right rail', or side column, and automatically adjusts to fill the container, or horizontal space given (responsive sizing by default). The Slider must be a minimum of 300 pixels wide in order to be monetized properly.
If the Slider is embedded within a container element of width 300 pixels or less, the product fills its minimum width of 300 pixels. If the product is placed within a container that is a width greater than 300 pixels (say 330 pixels for example), then the product only fills said space.
