    Hello,
    I think I'm doing something wrong but I can't seem to set individual links to the images, only the default link displays on all. I'd like to have for example http://www.google.com on one image, then http://www.yahoo.com on another. Is this possible?

    You can enter a link in the caption when you are inserting an image. The link will show up in on the left side of the image.

    I don't want to see the link. I just want the image to be linked. Not possible?

    Hey how did you remove the arrows? i tried to add this to the style sheet but didn't work:

    .jcarousel-skin-tango .jcarousel-next-horizontal {

    background-image: none !important;
    }
    thank you!

    I reduced the width of the prev and next element. Like this:

    .jcarousel-skin-tango .jcarousel-next-horizontal {
        background: none;
        cursor: pointer;
        height: 32px;
        position: absolute;
        right: 15px;
        top: 43px;
        width: 1px;
    }
    .jcarousel-skin-tango .jcarousel-prev-horizontal {
        background: none;
        cursor: pointer;
        height: 32px;
        left: 5px;
        position: absolute;
        top: 43px;
        width: 1px;
    }

    See the width: 1px in both classes?

    Just add it to your theme's custom css and it should do the trick.

    Can you figure out which classes are loading and from which stylesheet, using Firefox+Firebug?

    Alvarogois,thanks a lot. I did put links on images, it's ok.

    Now, I can't make changes on .css of plugin (inactive) and I put the code to reduced the width of the prev and next element in my .css theme (Magnificent of Elegant Theme) ...and nothing change. I will like (really I need) my carousel that like yours (http://appacdm-lisboa.pt/?p=1272).

    What can I make?

    Sorry for my english, and thank you very much.

    Alvarogois, I'm completely puzzled as to how you managed to edit the css - at ALL - via the theme custom css pane!

    Despite using the correct classes, any changes I make in the custom css pane seem to be completely ignored by this plugin and it sounds like the same thing is happening to both Florjohn and Compay.

    I'm just wondering what you did differently that makes it work for you...

    Can you figure out which classes are loading and from which stylesheet, using Firefox+Firebug? You need to figure that out if you want to see where the problem is.

    In the above example there's actually two different carrousels, the first one is using Sponsors Carousel plugin, the other Shortcodes Ultimate, but both work the same way: overriding the plugin's CSS with the theme's CSS.

    I don't know what else to say. It works that way.

    A workaround is creating your custom plugin skin. Through FTP, locate the plugin's folder and duplicate the skin folder you wish to customize. Make the CSS changes in the original folder and leave the copied one intact, just in case. Be sure to comment your changes and make a backup copy of that folder.

    Beware: with this workaround you'll loose any changes if the plugin gets updated. This is not good practice, I'm just posting so that you can get it to work.

    @Alvarogois: Oh I totally understand how it's supposed to work, and I've got no problem figuring out the classes via "inspect element" in Chrome, it's just that it doesn't seem to be overriding the plugin's css (as it's meant to) when I use the custom css pane - even the example you provided earlier for the prev and next elements didn't change anything.

    I was already considering your 2nd workaround, and ultimately may need to go with that, but I'm just confused as to how you got it to work so easily!

    This is probably a long shot, but do you think it could have anything to do with using a child theme? I don't know, maybe it's confusing the plugin's paths to reference the original theme rather than the child or something? Did you use a child theme for yours?

    Thanks so much for responding though - any clues we can get for this problem will help quite a few of us it seems...

    @Sweatshop: now that you mentioned, it may have something to do with the way you have your child-theme style loading.

    You can test it out: just insert the above code in your parent-theme stylesheet and see if it works.

    I'm not quite sure why don't all child-themes work the same way as to style loading. I had that same problem myself.

    Sorry I can't be of assistance on that. But if you have an idea, please let me know.

    That's the most rewarding experience of being a WordPress user. You can always help someone and be helped by someone. And, believe me, I'm no geek… I'm a plain regular user who builds some websites with this wonderful tool and always aim to learn a little bit more each day.

    This is the exact plugin I was looking for as is simple and straightforward but my images horizontal (banners) appear smaller and cropped not in their real dimensions as I had expected, I had done everything that was advised in these forums; changed all the values and added to the CSS without luck, any advice will be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    It's hard to tell what can be your problem fjavier, without seeing it in action. Can you provide an example of what's happening and what you actually want the plugin to do?

    The issue was I was trying to use it in a new responsive theme, but unfortunately the plugin is not responsive therefore I had opted to replace for a responsive unit. Thanks

    hey guys,
    My links are working, just not as intended. It is putting the current page before the sponsor link.

    example, lets say my page I was on is
    http://www.example.com/sweet
    it takes the sponsor link and puts it behind the current page making it
    http://www.example.com/sweet/www.sponsorpage.com

    anyone have any ideas? I'm guessing it has to do with the main php file around line 112ish, but I cant get it! HELP! :)

    well, I hope my stupidity will not go in vain.

    The reason it was pulling my web address prior was because I didn't have

      "http://"
    before the link in the pictures caption.

    I'm almost certain I made the same mistake the first time… 8|

    Just hope you found it before messing with the php…?
