Recommended Posts

Evening All

 

I am looking to create a carousel affect on my website, which consists of 13 scrolling images, I only want to show 4 at a time, with left and right navigation.  These images relate to Pages (not posts) and I therefore need to have a link from the image to the relevant page.  I have looked through the forums seen a variety of old options (+ none of them seem to specifically relate to my request), but wondered if someone could give me best advise please?

 

I have installed the NextGen plugin (but for some reason the images are not loading & not sure the Flickr one is relevant) + I can't see a way of linking this to the relevant pages.

 

Your assistance/advice, as always, greatly appreciated.

Hello there,

 

By default the carousel section only points to posts, flickr or images within the nextgen galleries. There's no option by default with using pages to point the image link to unfortunately.

 

Your best bet would be to look into a premium plugin like http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/multicarousel/ which will allow a url link to be entered or to look into a premium plugin like 'better carousel' to see if that has the options in it which can help.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Thanks James, will they support placing the carousel in the 'Page Template' main area ie above the content and wrap area?

Hi,

 

You could create a child section of the Carousel and change the workswith. However, be beware that we do not provide support for child sections. For more information, see this topic.

      The Grams section of Platform 5, is lacking lots of important features, that DMS multigram was having, there is no space for another user ID asie the default user, that was one of the strongest point of multigrams, because the Hashtag option cannot capture everyone, multiple User ID is the default standard for Instagram,  Also there is no carousel or slide on this one, it means now that if you want to display 18 pictures in one page all will be visible at once thats not good engineering.
      My appeal to the Pagelines Team, guys please let the next update have all the DMS Multigrams features that is missing on Platform 5 Grams, that will bring it to its glory...

      I have read several posts regarding conflict with NextGEN Gallery plugin. I am having a different problem - the galleries just fail to show up. I am running the latest versions of P5 and NextGEN, do you know if the fix plugin will solve that? Should I just try it and see what happens? thx

      Hi Guys, 
       
      I noticed this a while back but thought it happened back when there was security issues with the wordpress plugin revolution slider and thats why they disappeared, but thinking i was wrong now as mine are the DMS versions.
       
      Basically, my front end editor is missing the icons for;
       
      • Rev Slider
      • Revolution Slider
      • Quick Slider
       

       
       
      What i've also noticed is a difference in how the menu tabs on the left hand side of the front end editor have changed. They were not styled like this before. Its like the css is off or something isnt quite right with the install somehow, somewhere.
       
      Even though the icons are missing for the slider sections. I can still drag them onto my pages and configure them, to a certain degree anyway.
       
      I tried adding the revolution slider to a page yesterday. But it wasnt responding to the way i had configured it. I choose a slide set for it to use and it took no notice. It just used every slide and every caption regardless.
       
      Leaving the revolution slider behind i took a look at the rev slider. Adding the correct images is fine. But i don't get any captions showing when i set them? Tried a few different options but nothing.
       
      Id like to know if my pagelines DMS 2 install is corrupt in anyway? Does anyone else's front end editor look the same as mine? Is anyone else missing the icons for the sliders and have no padding-right for the menu items?
       
      Is anyone using any of the sliders at the moment without issues?
       
      Im using the child theme 'Sophistique" which uses the revolution slider on the homepage. It works fine and its configured the way i want it using thh slide sets ive choosen so dont understand why it would be working inside the website.
       
      Any advice or help is appreciated. Thank for your time guys. Ben

      I have DMS2 installed and my site is being served over HTTPS. However, I am getting an error that a placeholder image for Quick Carousel (which is not a being used on any of my pages) is being served over http://
       
      Mixed Content: The page at 'https://harqen.com/'was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure image 'http://placehold.it/45x45/f0f0f0/ccc'. This content should also be served over HTTPS.
       
      How can I remove this?
       
      Found it. It was the Recent Posts Widget that was calling this little devil. I have removed the reference and all is well in SSL land.

      I just updated to the new theme and I am now getting errors on my HTTPS site that the quick carousel is trying to deliver content through HTTP.
       
      Mixed Content: The page at 'https://harqen.com/'was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure script 'http://harqen.com/wp-content/themes/dms/sections/quickcarousel/caroufredsel.js?ver=98ab90'. This request has been blocked; the content must be served over HTTPS.
       
      Can you please help me correct this issue?
