Apart from the options inside widget you can manipulate the before/after loop and articles content with this actions:

do_action(‘mimo_carousel_before_content’); // The beginnning of content inside each article
do_action(‘mimo_carousel_after_content’); // The end of content inside each article
do_action(‘mimo_carousel_before_loop’); // Out of the loop
do_action(‘mimo_carousel_after_loop’); // Out of the loop

Create a folder in your theme called ‘mimo-carousel’ and inside a folder called ‘partials’, then create a file insise, called ‘mimo-carousel-content.php’, to overwrite content template for posts. You can especify here which template to use for the posts view inside carousel. This would be normally the template called content.php in your theme.

Example of file ‘mimo-carousel-content.php’ :

[Example 1][markdown syntax]

if(class_exists('Woocommerce') && get_post_type() == 'product' ) {
    //Use woocommerce template of theme
    get_template_part( 'woocommerce/content','product');  

} else {
    //Use post template of theme
    get_template_part( 'template-parts/content');

“Plugin under development”
