  1. Better-Carousel from Nick Haskins as an alternative responsive carousel section perfectly integrates with the framework. Editing underlying Flexslider2 parameters in the corresponding better-carousel > section.php works perfectly to adjust section behavior. But when switching to iBlogPro5 things change! At first sight you will see the thumbnails of the better-carousel jump to full 100% size. The width, adjusted in Better-Carousel to 125px is somehow overwritten or not loaded. Screenshot Framework only: http://www.screencast.com/t/gddLXB1nxAj Screenshot with iBlogPro5: http://www.screencast.com/t/nLcqIpucOJU Trying to find the reason, please help! And yes, I did an almost complete customization of better-carousel fitting perfectly into the design of iBlogPro5. http://www.screencast.com/t/UO6RPwwVemui I also posted the CSS-Customization for this Design at Nick Haskins Forum Section with Paglines: http://www.pagelines.com/forum/topic/26655-better-carousel-customized-for-iblogpro5/ Everything seemed to be perfect simply putting the correct width into Custom CSS (125px). But that was only CSS-cosmetics. Something in the background - coming from iBlogPro5 - changed mor than this. Later I figured out: parts of the Flexslider2.js don't work correctly with iBlogPro5 or may not load at all. Eiting parameters in the corresponding better-carousel > section.php has no more influence on the behavior or appearance (it did with framework only). And yes, I tested without the Custom-CSS of course.
  2. Hi Nick, want to share my customization work for wonderful Better-Carousel to integrate beautifully into iBlogPro5 plus adding two suggestions and wishes for the product to make the better even better First of all: unfortunately out of the box iBlogPro5 will overwrite Better-Carousel if you have an activated iAccordion-Section because of a jQuery-conflict! Using the Framework only - no problem. This was reported and solved in the following topic: http://www.pagelines.com/forum/topic/26695-iblogpro5-overwrites-better-carousel/?p=155821 Better-Carousel needs a proper working jQuery for its responsive design! For a shortcut I pasted the solution part of the threat in here: * * * »To be more specific: jQuery UI 1.8.16 - from iAccordion seems to be causing a conflict with jQuery FlexSlider v2.1 in Better-Carousel. My solution was: erasing jQuery UI 1.8.16 in pagelines-iblogpro5 > sections > iaccordion > jquery.ui.accordion.js And don't touch the parts: jQuery UI Widget 1.8.16 and jQuery UI Accordion 1.8.16 ! They seem to be responsible to have a working accordion widget in the sidebar. I'm not a pro and I was just playing around with that, but this gave me a working Accordion-Widget + the Better-Carousel working like default and untouched. Please note: Editing directly in the core will be overwritten with future updates - so whenever you install a iBlogPro5-Update - you might have to redo this work! « * * * 1. Suggestion - images should not be cut scrolling to the next set of images - two screenshots show what I mean: http://www.screencast.com/t/UO6RPwwVemui 1st screenshot shows the layout and design of the first set of images in the carousel - perfectly fitting into the box. http://www.screencast.com/t/ns8WbbbbUu05 2nd screenshot shows the images being cut after scrolling to the next image sets. I would prefer they would neatly fill the space and not be cutted - behaving like in the pagelines carousel! 2. Suggestion - It would be nice if you could add the text-blend-in effect on <hover> like in the pagelines carousel as an option. Would look great, I think. So here is my Customization-CSS from the screenshots above for anybody who wants to add Better Carousel to iBlogPro5 and play around with it - enjoy: /* BETTER CAROUSEL (Margins, Shadows etc.) */ .better-carousel .slides li, .better-carousel.better-clone .slides li { background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #FFFFFF; border: 1px solid #FFFFFF; box-shadow: 0 1px 2px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.4); margin: 1px 0px 3px 1px; padding: 3px; } #better-carousel li { margin-right: 14px; } /* BETTER CAROUSEL (Box etc.) */ .better-carousel, .better-carousel.better-clone { background-color: #FAFAFA; background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(center top , #FFFFFF, #F2F2F2); background-repeat: repeat-x; border: 1px solid #FFFFFF; border-radius: 4px 4px 4px 4px; padding: 20px 20px 5px; text-shadow: 0 1px 0 #FFFFFF; border-color: #E4E4E4 #CCCCCC #BBBBBB; border-style: solid; border-width: 1px; box-shadow: 0 1px 0 #CCCCCC; } .better-control-nav { margin-top: 5px; } /* BETTER CAROUSEL (Navigation Buttons) */ .better-control-paging li a { -moz-box-sizing: border-box; background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #E7E9EC; border-radius: 12px 12px 12px 12px; box-shadow: 0 1px 3px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.3) inset, 0 1px 0 rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.2); color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.4); display: inline-block; font-size: 12px; line-height: 20px; } /* BETTER CAROUSEL (Titelbox Adjustments) */ .better-carousel-item-title { height: 65px; margin-right: : -4px; padding: 5px; background: none; box-shadow: inherit; line-height: 15px; } /* BETTER CAROUSEL (Text istance to image (-) values bringing text into the image and overlay) */ .better-carousel .slides li img, .better-carousel.better-clone .slides li img { display: block; margin-bottom: 0px; } Aloha - Tang
  3. Hello I just purchased the Better-Carousel section. Love the improvement regarding responsive layout for mobile devices. But. Don't love the formatting compared to the original - I'm using the iBlogPro5 theme. And have switched back to the original carousel as a result. Is it possible to just implement the responsive capability and leave the rest of the settings based on the original carousel?
  4. Hi. there is a way to add action (trought hook) in better carousel - content-pad? i need add link text beside better carousel. www.semglutensemlactose.com. i dont know how. tks for any help.
  5. I have just bought better carousel and the multiple category feature is just what I needed. However, I seem to have lost a few options that I had in the carousel section. I would like to specify (as before) to display 4 images at a time and it scroll through 10 moving along 3 at a time. I now only have the option to put in 'items to show'. When I put in 4 it only displays 4 items, does not scroll and the images are bunched up to the left. Is there a way I can control this and I would like the images to spread out evenly across the page. Very grateful if you could help? Regards Nikki
  6. Hi. Is it possible to use Better Carousel as a scroller? Meaning, is there a way to configure the section so that the posts/thumbs scroll in a continuous loop, as opposed to resetting backwards to its initial position, and to eliminate the pause between transitions? Boss wants a "logo parade" and I'm looking for a simple solution. Thanks in advance.
  7. Hi Nick, I'm using Better Carousel and am very happy with your PL plugin so far. Question... is there any way of modifying the text field for each image to two lines (instead of one?). Reason is I have some posts that have titles that are longer than one line. Looking forward to hearing back from you. Regards, Robert
  8. Hi Nick, I would like to purchase your "Better Carousel" addon for Pagelines but have a couple of questions: 1) Can I link an image in the carousel to a wordpress page? 2) I assume it's OK to display 10 images across the page? Regards, Robert
  9. Hi, I just purchased the better-carousel plugin. The installation still fails. I get the message: Unpacking the package… Installing the plugin… The package could not be installed. No valid plugins were found. Plugin install failed. What can be the problem? I already installed the plugin manually, without succes. I downloaded it for a second time, without succes... Thank you for your help. Best regards, Bart.
  10. Hey Nick - Glad to have a reponsive carousel, but... I know that neither the new or old carousel could link to pages, but I REALLY wanted it to work so I thought I'd try a little workaround I've used before. I added a plugin "Map Categories to Pages" - thinking it might just work - and it didn't. Any simple fix to get your section to recognize Pages (not posts) that have been assigned a category?
  11. Having some issues with the full width of the image showing.
