Recommended Posts

Hi, I bought the Cool Carousel slider but their does not seem to be any support contact. I need a nice slider and this one is nice but when the page loads it loads with white on the bottom of the site. You can see both slides as it is loading in a column. Does anyone know what the problem might be or what is a good slider.

 

My next website I need a full width slider like this site www.solditclosedit.com. Hoping this slider will work will work?

 

Website with slider not working properly is: http://buff.ly/GK2HAM

Hi satinfeather99. I am the developer of Cool Carousel. Thanks for your purchase. All support for extensions sold in the PageLines Shop are handled via this forum.

 

What you're seeing is called FOUC (Flash of Unstyled Content). It's all over the internet.

 

In your case, specifically, your images are huge. The script is loaded, waiting for the images to finish loading.

 

From Pingdom ( http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/s5cN4/http://avisualadvantage.net/Jason/ ) you can see that you have 3 images over 1MB each. I'd recommend using Photoshop's save for web if you have that or something like Kraken ( https://kraken.io/web-interface ) or Smush.it ( http://www.smushit.com/ysmush.it/ ) from the original image. A 1100 wide image doesn't need to be 1.3 or 1.6 MB. They should be around 300kb - 500kb. Once you do that, your page load will be about 1/9th of what it was.

 

You can see the test for my Cool Carousel Demo page ( http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/4Wf2r/http://www.pagelinestheme.com/cool-carousel-section/ ), which has 33 carousel items (large images, smaller images, video embeds, google maps, iframe, etc.)

 

As far as a full-width section, I just pushed version 1.3 update, which gives you a 2nd section that is full-width. Enjoy! (FYI, the Pingdom test above was before I added the full-width images to the demo page, which is http://www.pagelinestheme.com/cool-carousel-section/

Thank you I will try that. Why does the slider show 2 when it loads up - one slider on top of the other?

Technically, it's not quite FOUC because it's simply that the slider loads before the images because the images take so long to load. But FOUC, by definition, means you can't really fix it.

 

http://avisualadvantage.net/Jason/ doesn't load 2 carousels, one on top of each other, as you said. Do you have a screenshot / screencast?

 

I'd also recommend getting a CDN, like MaxCDN ( http://wpmu.org/maxcdn-review-coupon/ ).

Nice and Thank you. Can I get the 1.3 update for this slider so I can make the slider full width. Are the instructions simple? My client also wants her logo and menu on top of the slider like this other website I just designed using Ink themes template http://buff.ly/1gxl8Ws

 

Is there anyway I can do that? I would like to continue to use pagelines to design my own template. Right now I am still not sure if Pagelines is best or headway better for that. But I certainly have some issues to figure out. Thanks for your help

Hi Do I update my plugin for this I just bought the Cool Carousel last week?

 

As far as a full-width section, I just pushed version 1.3 update, which gives you a 2nd section that is full-width. Enjoy! (FYI, the Pingdom test above was before I added the full-width images to the demo page, which is http://www.pagelines...rousel-section/

satinfeather99 and I have been PM-ing. I provided a manual .zip of updated version because PL shop servers were not working. Everything should be working now. Visit your plugins page and the update should appear. If not, you'll need more generalized assistance not specific to my store product, for which you should contact PL support.

      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...

      Hello there,
      We are still using DMS 2 and were wondering if it was at all compatible with slider revolution. (https://codecanyon.net/item/slider-revolution-responsive-wordpress-plugin/2751380). Our issue is that the default revslider for DMS clips the top and sides of videos when made responsive. As the video is made smaller or larger the bottom of it tends to be cut off, or the sides are. We noticed slider revolution was 100% responsive, but have had numerous issues even getting it to display in DMS 2. We have tried using the shortcode, and various php scripts to no avail. Our last attempt was to try and load it with header scripts, but at this point we seem to be further away than ever. 
      This leads me to a few questions:
      1. Is Slider Revolution even compatible with DMS2?
      2. Is there a way we can get 100% responsive video in DMS 2 with zero clipping? (tonyrobbins.com is another good example of the effect we are trying to achieve.)
      3. If Slider Revolution is compatible, how do we go about adding it in?
       
      Thank you for any help.

      Hi Developers, I wasn’t sure what the best way to get feedback was but didn’t really want to put this in the facebook group, I did put this in the slack developers group but trying to figure out the fastest way to get feedback.  I am starting a new site for a client and was looking through the showcase to see if there were any samples for slider modifications like I am trying to do for our build and couldn’t find them.  Basically I want to have a blue section at the bottom of each slide that has text in it.  The text will change with each slide along with the image.  Was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on how this modification could be made?  Here is a sample of the slider from the design.

      Hi, 
      I was wondering if there's a way to modify the slider container size? My client would like it skinner- not as tall. How would you suggest doing that?
      Thank you.
      (this is for the paoloimperiale.com slider on the homepage)

      Hi,
      I am using the Canvas Area section at the top of my site. I have a video playing in the background, which works really well on desktop. But on mobile video doesn't play without user interaction, so I have a static image in place as an alternate image. However when viewed on a mobile device there is now a play button over the static image that does nothing. This didn't use to happen so I imaging it is due to an upgrade. But this is really bad UX. Is there a way to remove it?
      Here is the site:

      Thanks in advance.
