Home Page Slideshow

Permalink Browser Info Environment
I'm not seeing away to make the main image on the home page a slider. Is that possible?

Hiya Tom,

Currently, the banner area of the cosmos theme does not support the default slider function. Although, we will implement this on the next update. We'll try to push the new update tomorrow so you can use the slider.

Thanks

Version 1.2.1 is now live with some overall fixes to the theme. We've also added compatibility for the default slider block on the homepage banner area.

Please update your theme and let us know if there is anything else we can do to help.

Thanks!

So I upgraded the template but I'm not seeing how to place a slider in the main image on the home page. Can you give me a little direction?

Tom

Hi,

I apologize for misunderstanding. Didn't know you wanted the whole background image as the slider. For now, you can add a slider block inside the banner area but the whole banner can't be the slider.

We will keep that feature in mind on our next update.

Ok. Just so you know this is a big deal for us as we are using your template for two different clients and we assumed the background could be a slider as that is pretty much the norm. We will probably need to use a different template for these clients moving forward.

Hi Tom,

That is completely understandable. And since you mentioned that the background slider is a big deal and is being used by two clients, we are now prioritizing to add this feature. Although, some time might be needed as the theme wasn't designed to work this way.

Thanks,

Im letting the clients know of the limitation but recommending we stick with Cosmos with the option to add the slider once it's available.

The client is asking us to consider a different template but we want to keep them with Cosmos. Would you be able to give us a date on when the slider would be available? If we had a estimated date I think that would help.

There will be no exact date but this won't take so much time. I'm working on it and will release the new version as soon as I can.

Thank you for you patience.

I have uploaded the new version of the theme. Kindly update the theme and clear the browser's cache.

You might want to try these steps:

***If you don't want to reinstall the existing site:
1. Go to Page Templates and click 'Add Template'

Name: Home Version3
Handle: home_v3
Icon: choose your icon

2. Follow the steps below(After installation steps)

***After installation:
1. Change home page template to 'Home Version3'. You can do this via (sitemap -> design and type -> Home Version3) or (upper left cog icon -> design -> page template -> Home Version3)

2. Remove page attribute 'Image Background' (upper left cog icon -> attributes -> Image Background)

3. Empty 'Big Image Text' area and add image slider block.

Let me know how it goes.

YOU GUYS ROCK!!

Thank you so much! The only thing I see is to have the slider reduce in size on mobile.

Hey guys, the website is coming along well. One small issue wondering if you could look at. When we view the home page slideshow on mobile, the image responds horizontally but not vertically so the images looks squished. see screenshot. Can this be fixed?
