Thank you.

Just a thought, until they get it built in but you can add this manually if you want. Either with an html object or a button, etc. In the HREF just add the javascript slide control you want:

//Previous slide
javascript:$("#carousel-1").carousel(“prev”);
//Next slide
javascript:$("#carousel-1").carousel(“next”);
//Slide Number
//Previous slide
javascript:$("#carousel-1").carousel(2);

It’s already available if you open the class panel. Click on the drop down and you will see options for arrows and indicators. No need for coding.

#5

This is very interesting. Maybe you can help me to add link to slide?


#6

I see the option for indicators, just not arrows. Maybe its in the beta version?

you can use this to go to a specific slide number.

I can’t see how to change the arrow color from, say, white to black. I’ve added the subclasses mentioned in this thread, but neither the Style nor Type color settings did anything to the arrow color. Instead, they seem to only control the background around those arrows (which I don’t want – see diagram). By contrast, I was able to change the the indicator colors with no problem.

I don’t know the answer to this specific question, but on the subject of carousel options I’d like to see alt tags for images and also the ability to add x1, x2 and x3 resolution.

UPDATED: I’ve now been able to reproduce the bug described in item (2) using 2.5.0 b7 as well.

I’ve been working with carousels quite a bit, and have noticed some strange things happening in 2.5.0 b5.

  1. Carousel deleting when deleting things nearby
    I often don’t use the caption within the carousel, but do put some text, typically a small paragraph, just below the carousel. I’ve noticed that sometimes when I go to delete that text, the carousel itself also deletes. It seems to happen more when the text is very close to the bottom of the carousel. Sometimes I’m able to recover, but at other times I can’t find a way around it and have to rebuild the carousel.

  2. Asset images appearing in bloc backgrounds randomly when pressing cmd-s
    I’ve now reproduced this error, for at least one case demonstrated in the animated .gif, where I first italicize some text and then click outside the paragraph bric. Then when I press the cmd key (as the first step of doing a save, cmd-s) an image I’d recently placed into a carousel appears in the background of the bloc, even though the asset manager is not even open. I then go to the edit menu to undo, and it disappears. In the .gif, I repeat by clicking outside the bric again and pressing cmd again, and a different image appears.


    After posting this, I noticed the same thiing happening fairly regularly whenever I finish an edit in a paragraph bric, and click below it, followed by a save (my usual practice, cmd-s). Also, I noticed that the image was not just from the carousel, but even some of the stock photos supplied in the asset manager.

Another note:
When adding many images to a carousel (say 10) I need to go to each slide and then scroll through the image gallery to find the needed image. As I do this any image I mouse over will (at least briefly) appear in the carousel (or sometimes nearby regions) because of the way Blocs works – I find this very distracting, and wish there was an option to have Blocs only place an image when you make a definite decision, like clicking, double clicking, (or right clicking?). I know there’s some cool factor to not having to drag things with the mouse all the time, but there can also be an unintended annoyance factor as well, so it would be nice if there were a preference for this behavior. On the other hand, I’m also getting used to it.
