  • Resolved FlyingNimbus


    Hi Chris,

    First of all, awesome plugin, love it!

    I have a small issue with the height of the slideshow forcing me to use it with a maximum of 1 testimonial. When I choose to show multiple testimonials with the slideshow it looks like the height for the largest one is calculated and preserved even when showing a smaller one, causing a lot of whitespace. Even though I have set a the content to “a specific length” , the difference in height can sometimes be so much it breaks the “flow” of the website. Setting the quantity to 1 solved this for me but obviously I would like the complete experience of your awesome work 😉
    Correct me if I’m wrong but can’t this be resolved with some clever CSS or even JS?

    Thanks, I appreciate that.

    The plugin does set the height of the container to match the tallest “slide”. Without that, one of two things would happen.

    Either the slides would overflow as in this example forcing you to manually set the container height, or if the plugin adjusted the height to match each slide, the elements below the slideshow would bounce up and down.

    I find that bouncing very distracting and I think it breaks the flow more than whitespace. It’s especially bad in a sidebar with other dynamic elements and in a page just above the footer.

    I’m standing my ground on this one. 🙂

    There is no perfect solution. The best approach is to use testimonials of about the same length. IMO, the average visitor does not know that hovering a slideshow will pause it so they’re not going to be able to read the longer ones anyway.

    I recommend making slideshows eye-catching and easy-to-read or teasers linked a full page.

    Alright, I understand. I had not thought about the consequences of making the height dynamic because in my case the slideshow is at the bottom of the page.

    I guess the closest thing to a solution would be making the way the height static/dynamic a setting haha.

    I’ll replace my slideshow with a display of 1 slide.

    Thank you for the fast support!
