Quickslider lost navigation mode choice?

Recommended Posts

Dear Pageliners, I am already enjoying DMS2 a great deal! Today I discovered that the Quicksliders on my page have changed their navigation mode. In the Editor, there seems to be no dropdown choices for this, as there were in DMS1. I'm sure that either I have not found it or that it's an oversight. It would be great to have that previous functionality back! Thank you for your help, as ever, yours faithfully, Jan.

Hi caspersjan

 

These options are no longer available as you have noticed - i have fed this back to the dev team. 

 

for the moment there is no way to add these back in. this may be introduced in a further update.

Thank you Martin. I'm sure there will be a few loose ends to tie up yet, it's inevitable. In the meantime I'll find some stopgap solution, there have always been plenty of sliders out there. But I'll be glad to return to the comfort of the built-in Quickslider! Yours faithfully, Jan.

No problem - the quickslider is kept simple and light of options in order to be 'quick' if you see what i mean

That's why I like it - but at the moment is just a bit too light, with only the one very specific option. The old one had No Navigation, Arrow Navigation Only, Slide Control Only and Slide Control plus Arrow Navigation. No doubt it'll be back soon in all its simple glory!

Thanks. There is silver linings: It has already been an opportunity for me to learn something, hiding those arrows in the top left corner with CSS. For someone spoilt by Pagelines ready meals this simple customisation is an achievement! Greetings, Jan.

 

.flex-gallery ul.flex-direction-nav a.flex-next{
display: none;
padding-left: 2px;
}
 
.flex-gallery ul.flex-direction-nav a.flex-prev{
display: none;
padding-left: 2px;

 

}

yeah good work - you can simplify this further - i've just done this for someone else - let me update with the code .

That works, and what's more, I understand why! Thank you. Jan.

Jan - got a further update for you. 

 

Should have realised but if you want the old quickslider back you can just copy the section for quickslider out of /themes/sections and add it to the same folder in your child theme. That way you can have the old slider and the old options back.

Hello, is there any chance of navigation options being added to the Quickslider again? I'm sure it was an oversight to leave them out. And it can't be much work to put them back again, but I could not see a reinstatement in recent updates. Please be so kind as to alert the coders who write these updates to give this handy section its old functionality back! Thank you and good luck, yours faithfully, Jan.

Hello Pageliners, I was struggling with the Pagelines Carousel shortcode right now. Only to achieve functionality that used to be in Quickslider. Please, if it is at all possible do enable navigation options again. At the moment it's stripped to a choice of transition type and a tickbox for automatic animation - which is turned on by default and can't be turned off, or so it seems. I'm sure it's an oversight and not a deliberate change from the old Quickslider which was very good - simple, quick yet powerful... Martin suggested to use the old code. Maybe this could be done for the next upgrade. 

Please let me know if this is the right place to voice this query - will it reach the right ears? Yours gratefully, Jan.

      http://731.34b.myftpupload.com/ this website is using the NavPro navigation in Platform 5. It has a lot of menu items, so it breaks to two lines when the window is sized down. What is the media query to make the navigation either a) switch to "mobile mode" at a higher width, or b ) expand the nav into two lines. Thanks

      Hi Everyone,
      I am trying to get a single navigation item to center. I am using a scroll menu in the navigation component of Impulse. I would like to have the item in the center of the page but it defaults right. I tried setting the item to center a few different ways and nothing is working. I added {
        display: inline-block;
        position: relative;
        text-align: center;
      }
      but that didn't work...any help would be appreciated. Site is at http://vetpaw.org/new
       
      Thanks!

      I just installed and added the Flipper section to my home page and it makes my navigation/menu bar items disappear.
      They do show up again when scrolling down and everything seems normal on the other pages.

      Thanks.

      I'm still "piercing the veil" of platform 5, with page navigation the current subject of interest. I worked with a few plugins (the most useful being Next Page Not Next Post) but I wanted to take a step back and start with an example - and see if I could get a bit of help "inside the beltway". 
      What I'm looking to do is substantially similar to the pagelines docs pages - see my annotated screenshots attached. At the top of a "child" page I want a link back to the "parent" page - and at the bottom of that "child" page I want to place a similar link to the "grandchild" page. At the bottom of each grandchild page I want there to be navigation "buttons" to sibling pages in the hierarchy. 
      "Next Page Not Next Post" handles what I'm expecting for "sibling" navigation, but I'm having a bit of trouble getting over the logistical hump of applying that functionality to my page "Template C" instance only. And per the attached examples, while researching how to solve this problem I see on the Pagelines site *itself* that the navigation elements are in place - and I especially like the oval button formatting of the sibling page navigation.
      So - really, my question is two-part:
      Are there plugins/code snippets/tutorials/threads here that show how Pagelines achieved their page hierarchy nagivation, and  Is there a tutorial (or advice from generous contributors here) on how to use the PHP templates to override the content portion of the page to add the navigation elements? Thanks in advance!
