Cool Carousel Cool Carousel Better Arrows

3 posts in this topic



I have just designed a new site called


I am very happy with the tools and functionality provided by products created by Cliff P. However, I really wish there's a possibility of being able to change the arrows for the Cool Carousel. The reason I want to change this is because I also use the Rev Slider which has a completely different arrow design (navigation icons). For consistency it would be great if Cool Carousel could use the same arrows as used in DMS. I think the Rev slider arrows look more modern (just my opinion).


Do you think there is any possibility of being able to use the same styled arrows as used in the DMS rev slider? If this is possible then the there would be no consistency issues with different styled navigational arrows.


Kind regards,

Hi JamesW. Thank you for your purchase. Thanks for that link. The site looks nice.


There are "Custom Next Text", "Custom Prev Text", and "Custom Next/Prev Divider" options, but they'll show up below the slider.


RevSlider uses Font Awesome icons for arrows, and Cool Carousel uses an image. You could upload your own image to override it via CSS.


Let me know if this helps or if there's something else to help with.

Thanks for your reply,


I will have a look at using CSS to change them. I actually prefer using the Cool Carousel because it seems to maintain the aspect ratio of images better than The Rev Slider. I will knock up my own arrows and hopefully it will be an easy change with minimal issues.


Thanks for providing us with great plugins Cliff!!


All the best,

    • More than 2 Mobile Menus
      By mistrmint+
      Is it possible to include more than 2 mobile menu's on the site?
      I am using 4 menu's but in mobile only the first 2 are clickable.
      Menu 4 is on a standalone page. If I click the menu on this page, the primary 2 menu's appear.
      i.e. Menu 4 is not clickable.

    • Header formatting
      By richardjacruz+
      I saw this website build with PageLines DMS:
      I want to have a header that's VERY similar. However, with the fixed area, I'm struggling with how to do that. 
      I want to have a "super menu" under one of the tabs, and drop downs for others, a larger logo to the left like this, a search all the way to the right, and a call-to-action at the top like we see with "Donate" (I want "Request a Quote").
      What area (fixed or header) is best to use for this, and, within that area, what are the best sections to place?
