Hi

 

I bought cool carousel the other day and i am just seeking a bit of advice.

I dont understand code just drag and drop  :) , i was hoping to make my carousel work with the fade function but it will only let me display 1 image at a time, can i make it work like this carousel on this site?  link below.

i am wanting to rebuild the site in DMS 2

 

Can we make the CC work the same as this? if so how do i go about doing it.

 

Many thanks in advance 

Martin

Hi. Thank you for your purchase. Thanks for that link. That site's flash slideshow is not how Cool Carousel works. You can see all the demos at http://www.pagelinestheme.com/cool-carousel-section/ (including the single-slide-at-a-time fade effect).

 

If you need help with anything else, please update this thread or create a new one.

 

If you need to, please contact the PageLines Staff about any refund requests. I am the only one that monitors my own forum.

Hi Clifford

 

I like the CC and I will be keeping it.

If its not too much of an issue would it be possible for you to make the carousel images fade or would that be a nightmare to get it to do that?

I am glad to hear you like it and will be keeping it.

 

However, the script that's used just doesn't have what you're looking for, which is basically a way to have multiple slides fade together. Cool Carousel can only fade 1 slide at a time, but you could use multiple Cool Carousel sliders on a single page if you desire.

Could i use it side by side say like 5 or 6 next to each other to give that effect as in the site link i sent you?

 

and thanks for getting back to me.

Yes, that's what I was suggesting. You'd add columns (part of DMS), and put a different CC in each column. Just know that none of the carousels are connected. You'd probably want to setup one how you like it (e.g. auto transition, turn off controls/arrows, choose Fade transition, etc.) and then clone it multiple times and drag into those columns.

Sorry for the delayed reply. Just a few minutes ago my issues with receiving forum notifications got resolved (I hope). We'll see how it goes  :-)

I see you added actual columns then added CC sections inside those. That's fine if you have a reason to do so, but you could also choose to remove the layout columns and just set each CC to be 2 col wide within a single column. (If that's confusing, just disregard)

I don't see the issue. I see that you are displaying 150x150 images.

Maybe you've already solved your own question?

P.S. Make sure to check your site is displaying as desired at all screen widths (responsive).

      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.
