settings missing

Gotcha. I didn't realize until now that you were the one that also posted that issue ( http://forum.pagelin...dms-2/?p=209318 ).

 

Version 1.8.3 is the last one that should be used with DMS 1. (Why don't you get DMS 2? It's better.)

 

I will PM you a .zip of v1.8.3 so you can get your settings back.

Hi Clifford,

 

We have looked at this before and I have found the time to disable all the other plugin's and clear Custom CSS and still it is happening.  www.ewizz.co.za

 

1. Please check the carousel of "three up" and click the left butting.  Page reloads.

2. It can also freeze or part show the 3 slides.  Can't reproduce at the moment.

 
Thanks Andy

Hi @andylemay. Good to hear from you again (re: http://forum.pagelin...ousel-freezing/ ). Thank you for going through those troubleshooting steps.

 

 

1) I see what you're saying about clicking the left arrow on the 3-wide slider when at the first slide. (I believe this was the same issue as before.)

 

2) I did not experience the 3-wide freezing or partially-showing certain slides.

 

 

For item #1, you have these settings:

speed: 1000

slideMargin: 20

easing: 'swing'

auto: true

pause: 10000

autoHover: true

minSlides: 3

maxSlides: 3

moveSlides: 3 

 

For the multi-display slider near the bottom of my site ( http://www.pagelines...rousel-section/ ), I have these settings:

easing: 'easeOutExpo'

captions: true

pager: false

auto: true

minSlides: 3

maxSlides: 3

moveSlides: 1

 

 

I tried to replicate your settings on my site. Everything worked fine except when moveSlides == maxSlides. When this was the case, it just wouldn't let the slide transition at all (prev or next). However, I've seen this setup elsewhere and it was working, and I couldn't reproduce your page refresh issue.

 

Try changing your moveSlides from 3 to 2. Other than that, I'd suggest trying to make your settings the same as mine and see if you can detect what fixes it for you on your site. Maybe it's moveSlides, maybe it's something else. Once we know what it is, we can see what we can do to fix.

Hi Clifford,

 

.....and here we come to the other problem I reported.  I'm using DMS 1 and 1.8.5 of Cool Carousel and in the setting for the carousel I can't see all the parameters including the number of slides to show. :-)

Hi Clifford,

 

I'll take a look at DMS 2 was just worried that there might be some compatibility issues and I don't have the time to sort them out right now.

 

What has been your experience?

 

On 1.8.3 that's great I'll take it back to that.

 

Andy

I would describe DMS 2 as a bunch of fixes and enhancements compared to DMS 1. There's no additional learning curve. More info on DMS 2 here:

Hi Clifford,

 

Ok I oaded 1.8.3 and I can see the settings again!

 

Still the 3 up set does the same weird reload on pressing the left button with 2 slides to transition set.  If you transition right once you can transition left once before it does the reload.

 

Also on the first one I have 11 slides in the set and no limit on the number (unlined) to show but it only shows 6.  Any ideas?

 

Thank you

 

Andy

Play with the other settings -- maybe even make them the exact same as mine.

Hi Clifford,

 

As I suspected DMS 2 messed with my fonts and formatting. Cool Carousel 1.8.5 still does the same under DMS 2.

Hi Clifford,

 

The problem with top carousel not show the unlimited banners is now fixed.  I'll play with the setting in the other one as you suggested.

 

Thanks Andy

The DMS 1 -> DMS 2 upgrade path isn't perfect, but it's good enough in all the situations I've had. Once you upgrade to DMS 2, then you might have some settings to tweak / re-implement. If you need assistance doing that, PM me for hourly rate info.

 

I'm not sure what you meant by top carousel issue. I thought the only issue was with the 3-wide carousel. Any news on that one?

Hi Clifford,

 

A lot of my problems appear to be with the implementation of Hero's in DMS 2. Certain not straight forward and bugy.  As I suspected I would,  I have had to spend the last two days straightening it out and working around the idiosyncrasies.

 

Been working in software for 40 years so I should know by now.

 

Andy

Idiosyncrasies is the right word. Good luck.
