Carousel - Several things (4 posts)

    Hello

    I might be asking too much here, but I want to do the following with the Carousel feature of Jetpack:

    1. Stop the image title being displayed in full screen mode
    2. Display the full resolution image in full screen mode and remove the link to full-size image in the bottom right
    3. Only show one thumbnail in the gallery

    Is this possible?

    Thanks kindly

    Vicky

    You should be able to achieve some of this with CSS:

    1.

    .jp-carousel-info h2 {
        display:none !important;
    }

    2. Display the full resolution image in full screen mode

    If you do so, the image won't always fit your reader's screen size.

    2. remove the link to full-size image in the bottom right

    a.jp-carousel-image-download {
        display:none !important;
    }

    3. Only show one thumbnail in the gallery

    I am afraid that's not possible without using a Slideshow plugin instead of the standard WordPress galleries. It can also be a problem for your readers, since they wouldn't be able to view one particular picture without having to click "Next" until they get to that picture in the carousel. Do I understand correctly?

    Hello

    Thanks for your help.

    With regards to the CSS you gave me, could you please help me out with where I should put it exactly?

    I've been playing around with carousel plugins but I couldn't find any that:
    a) had a full screen mode
    b) supported mobile screen sizes/were responsive
    c) looked clean and uncluttered like this one
    So I thought I'd see if I could make this work.

    The other problem is my images are wide and short, and I can only seem to get the generated thumbnails to be square - which looks very odd.

    Is there is a way to make the thumbnails the same proportions as the originals, and set the horizontal spacing between them? If so, all that together might work.

    Thanks

    I'd say that Jetpack carousel includes all 3 features.

    To change the look of your galleries, you can switch to the Text editor and add parameters to the gallery shortcode.

    Try using the following shortcode to have better thumbnails, for example:
    [gallery size="medium" columns"2"]

    You can find details about each Gallery shortcode here:
