Hey,

just a short question. I use the carousel for our forum supporter they pay a bit of money. The reason that not everyone can displayed at once as I've actually twelve of them inserted in the carousel, is not as equitable as I want to have them.

So my question, is it possible to start the carousel randomly on every pageload?

Happy to help, could you specify which you mean by randomly - as in a different widget/slide at center? Or display on more pages? It runs on Slick slider so definitely pretty flexible.

Hi, sorry for my late response!

As you know in the logo icon carousel settings there are Icon #1, Icon #2, Icon #3... and so on. This equals the order of icons published on the front page. Would be nice if there would be an option that "activate" a random order, for example: Icon #3, Icon #1, Icon #5, Icon #2... and so on. On next page load Icon #8, Icon #2, Icon #4, Icon #6..

Good news as looks like there's at least an unofficial method of doing this which I will test and can supply you some drop-in code for now to use at your site:

I can then implement this in the next updates via an on/off checkbox :)

I do have a working version of the feature - however I wasn't able to thoroughly test it before releasing in the latest theme framework (2.3.1rc1), so I will post you a template insert in the meantime :)

Update on this topic,
Sorry for the delay as you may see there's been a huge rollout of updates to the shop catalog :eek:
I'll finish up testing on the random slider code and get it up before tomorrow,

Hey PaintSplasher, first of all I'd just like to say thanks so much for your patience while I test the randomizer, as this week has been quite hectic with product updates.

Attached is a text file containing a replacement template for:
nl_slick_macros

Simply navigation to Admin -> Appearance -> Templates under your active style and replace the entire contents with this file, then re-save. This way if you choose to undo the random feature or have any issue, you can simply revert the template back to inheriting the master theme.

I'm adding an option to both the icon slider, and the featured widget carousel in the next update, so you can turn it on/off anytime :)

Hey, don't worry. Between the years we all have our packages who stacks up and have to be done ;)

I replaced the template and everything works fine and was exactly what I wanted. So my supporters should be happy now :D

That is really great to hear. If you have further suggestions please let me know. Much of the theme features here have been built off suggestions over time!
