Cool Carousel Better Arrows

Recommended Posts

JawDesigns    11



I have just designed a new site called http://www.tslandscapes.co.uk


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,

      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

      I am working on a website that uses the normal Pagelines content section for the individual post pages. At the bottom of the pages there is built-in functionality that shows the title of the previous and next post so that users can navigate more easily.
      However, I would love to to change this and either make it say:
      << Post Title       add            Post Title >>
      <<Previous        and           Next >>
      Is this possible? What would I need to do to accomplish this?
      Thanks so much for the help!

      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.

      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!
