Yes I liked it too.

Used as a fading slider on this example page http://deltadesign.co/FW7Test/slick-slider.html

excellent found, Todd and obviously good to handle within Freeway natively. Looking forward giving it a go (cause it’s the last carousel I’ll ever need :slight_smile:

Cheers

Glad you like it, Thomas.

When you have something ready to show please post a link, if possible. I would like to see how you guys are using Slick.

Well - what to say? It’s a bit weird (at least with my current setup). So I perhaps have to wrap my minds about it. There is something I’m obviously doing wrong :slight_smile: cause Davids’ example works.

I have to admit that I’m a huge fan of OWL-carousel.

I can’t say where exactly the differences of both products are (except OWL2 'til ages is in Beta mode) - but OWL is and was a JustWork. Perhaps Slick is even richer in features.

I’m currently on a huge “sidekick” project called “Materialize for Freeway” http://materializecss.com It’s kind of:

“Classes are the new Actions”

In Materialize, there is already a slider, but I honestly dislike it. So I substituted it by OWL. If you might want to have a look into this project, it can be found here:

Thomas,

That’s a nice collection. I’ve bookmarked it. I want to take a closer look at a couple of your examples.

Yes it works well to make a touch ready carousel.

http://demo-one.co.uk/slick/

However I think i’m seeing see a problem if you use the standard Freeway mobile menu and overlay. Then looking at the page on an iPhone it causes a problem where scrolling the menu interferes with the touch carousel underneath.

Anyone suggest a fix/workaround? Or just me?

David,

I see that you placed items (captions) absolute within a rel wrapping DIV.

Have you ever had problems in this method? I mean some screwing up of your FW surrounding? To me it’s sometimes like catching fleas - and I’m having had massive issues doing so in several projects.

I wonder what I’m doing wrong (which isn’t really a question - just for protocol)?

Cheers

Thomas

BTW: Slick isn’t really a nice player with other script stuff (my personal impression).

Hi Thomas,

As long as you make sure there’s enough height in the parent div it’s OK. I’m doing that to make sure the caption overlay div sits at the bottom (bottom 0px) of the slideshow background images. It can be moved up and down varying the bottom measurement depending on page width. The width is set as a percentage for responsiveness so that works perfectly. Used this method many times before.

Is it the touch/click aspect of this that appeals? Is this something that you guys would like us to add to the Slide them ion Exhibeo?

Joe,

Yes there is touch as a part (bonus) choice here, but I’m using Slick (and similar) because it allows any number of slideshow panes to be added removed/re-ordered using a CMS system in this case (Perch CMS)

Does Exhibeo galleries allow it to be manipulated and configured via a CMS? As in, is the javascript used does not directly identify each gallery element so your can control the HTML independently of it? If not then Exhibeo is a no go for many sites for me.

Yep, Exhibeo’s JavaScript works in the same way, although the HTML required might be different for each theme. We opt for structures that require the minimum amount of loading when pages are opened, so we usually just load the first thumbnail or image and then let the script handle the rest when it’s needed.
