New user needs help with carousel

Maybe there’s something I’m missing. I just purchased Blocs. How do I add images to a carousel?

Hi Garry,

You can simply click on the Image place holder in the sidebar (after selecting the carousel bric). You can also use the dropdown menu to add more slides.

Cheers,
Eldar

Thanks, it is just confusing. If the pictures aren’t scaled 1200x500 they mess everything up. It is kind of restrictive. I just have to get use to working with the blocks the way they are.

Hi @Binks, yes for the carousel bric, all the images need to be the same dimension for it to work well.

What you can do is over-ride the default behaviour of the carousel, so it works no matter the size. It will crop images when needed though.

It would be better to add the “carousel-inner” to the class manager so its easy to set the height and width you want for each breakpoint. The other class needs to be added to the page header.

<style>
.carousel-inner {
 height: 500px;	
}
.carousel-item img {
  background-size: cover!important;
  background-position: center!important;
}
</style>
