Theme 2012. Carousel
Could you post a link to one of your posts including Carousel? Your previous link doesn’t seem to lead to any gallery at the moment.
I had a lot of postings and had done a lot of testing, leaving a big mess of postings, so I deleted them all just now.
I will repost and send you a link.
Here is a posting to a gallery which leads to the carousel.
I will post shortly a screen shot with comments to clarify with a picture.
Here is a screen dump with comments.
Thanks! I had a look at your site, and the images seem to be properly displayed. The image description doesn’t appear until I scroll down, but I’m afraid there is not much we can do about it, since the Carousel is meant to provide a full-screen experience for your images:
You can, however, customize the CSS of the carousel to match your needs if you want the images to be smaller.
Oh, just seeing your screenshot now. That’s a different approach, and I like having the title above the image. However, and as I mentioned above, displaying more information above the scroll would make the images smaller. Displaying all that information on a smaller screen like mine would mean that the images would end being very small.
I took note of your ideas though! I saved a copy of your screenshot, and will forward it to our developers working on Carousel.
I very much appreciate your response.
I will have a look at the CSS. Can you point in the correct direction. The last time I looked I was phased by the variable nature of things as the screen was resized (say… so I could follow with Firebug.
Regarding the carousel… its such a shame …. there is so much white space that cannot be used and so much potential.
Final point. Can I keep the gallery and turn off the Carousel. I will try and link to a custom page / template with the info formatted to facilitate picture and data.
You can indeed keep the gallery and turn off the Carousel, by deactivating the Carousel module.
