Autoplay jQuery carousel and display URL in carousel title

Question:

I love your amazing slider and all other tools you are offering. Now, in this case - I would like check if I can use the JQuery Carousel, to show mp4 videos of property listings. Please let me know the following:

- Could it be set to autoplay, so that the Carousel is moving within a preset time

- Could the text title be an URL, which points to a description page on the website – or maybe the title replaced by an image icon with URL.

Answer:

In the application, step 2, Skins dialog, you can check the option "auto play".

HTML tags are supported in Version 2.2 and after. If you are not using the latest version, you can goto our website https://amazingcarousel.com/downloads/ to download it.

You can use HTML tags in the title and description, for example:

<a href="https://amazingcarousel.com" target="_blank">Amazing Carousel</a> rocks!

You can also add an image link to the title, for example:

<a href="https://amazingcarousel.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.yourwbsite.com/yourimage.png" style="border:0;" /></a>

In the above code, http://www.yourwbsite.com/yourimage.png is the URL link to your image.

Change visible items according to screen size

Question:

I bought a license for Amazing Carousel and it is freaking awesome. I love how extensible the css and js is.

I have tinkered with the media query in the initcarousel-1.js file and am delighted how flexible the carousel adjusts to screen widths.

mobile: {
  screenwidth: 600,
  visibleitems: 1
}

I would like to be able to have 1 item displayed when over 840px wide, 2 if under 840 but over 640, and back to 1 again for under 640. I've tried tinkering with that code and got error messages every time. Any clever concise way to do this without resorting to way more js than I want to deal with?

Many thanks for a great product!

Answer:

In the application, step 2, skins dialog, overview tab, change "Visible items" to 1.

In the same tab, change the screen query to following:

{
  medium: {
    screenwidth: 840,
    visibleitems: 2
  },
  mobile: {
    screenwidth: 640,
    visibleitems: 1
  }
}

With the above change, the carousel will have 1 item by default, it will change to 2 items when the screen size is under 840, and go back to 1 when the size is under 640.

Allow carousel to have fewer items than the visible number

Question:

I am using php to dynamically generate the list elements within the carousel on a page. Rather than having to have a different JS file for each page I would like all of the settings for the carousel to remain the same, to create visual consistency, but allow the carousels to have fewer than the visible number in the list.

For example - one list may have 2 items but i have 4 elements defined as visible. The JS automatically puts 2 more elements in the list and as you scroll through the carousel, whitespace shows up and eventually all of the items disappear.

Is there some setting i can tweak to make this work properly in the JS? I would rather the carousel not add elements if there are fewer than the visible definition. Which does seem to work properly when there is only 1 list item but not when it is 2 or more and less than visible.

Answer:

In the application, Step 2, Overview tab, Scroll mode, uncheck the option "Circular", then it won't add any extra items to the carousel.

jQuery Carousel not working in Internet Explorer

Question:

Absolutely love your products, Slider and Carousel. Thank you.

My problem is that the carousel is working beautifully on all browsers I have tried except IE. The page with carousel works fine on Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Torch, and Safari but not IE regardless if the OS is XP, Vista, or W7.

Answer:

It's because the DOCTYPE of your webpage triggers the quirk mode of Internet Explorer. You can view this tutorial: http://amazingslider.com/amazing-jquery-slider-internet-explorer-and-quirks-mode/

In short, currently, at the beginning of your webpage, the code is:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<html>

You need to change it:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
