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.pagelines.com/topic/33025-cool-carousel-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.pagelinestheme.com/cool-carousel-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.

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.

      I really like your Cool Carousel section. Unfortunately it's not possible to add this section to a page without affecting the page template.
       
      I have over 100 pages and only a handful need an image carousel. I'm trying to keep the number of custom page templates to a minimum. 
       
      Is it possible to add your section via shortcode into the WP Content Loop?

      Hi,
       
      How do I remove the padding? There seems to be a bit of blank space on top and bottom of the image as well as a bit to the right of it. I'm not sure if it has to do with image size. I tried to crop all my images the same size.
