Hi,

I'm trying to stop the rewind and make a loop with this carousel. I see that the newest version of the carousel will support the loop feature but I don't want to go and drop the new files in and make a mess without seeing if there is a different way to do it.

Anyone stopped the rewind and setup the loop for it?

It is amazing that out 100,000 + users, not one seems to know the answer for such an important topic like this....." It´s UNBELIEVABLE " .....Hope there is a good samaritan that is wondering around and stumbles upon these 2 dead bodies....Plz, someone help.

FYI, I´ve done just about everything on my site up to this point. However, in the past 2 days, I have tried to follow step by step the very lame install instructions laid out by Owl Carousel for doing the update, but they seem to have gone generic, and don´t give the exact files for opencart to modify.

Come on guys, give these fellows a hand.

Thank you in advanced.

Cheers.

As an example In catalog/view/theme/<your_theme>/template/module/slideshow.tpl file,

Followed will stop the rewind function: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2634 ... mless-loop .

Here is my way to update owl carousel, please use it at your own risk.
First backup these files:
catalog/view/javascript/jquery/owl-carousel/owl.carousel.min.js
catalog/view/javascript/jquery/owl-carousel/owl.carousel.css
upload/catalog/view/theme/default/template/module/banner.tpl
catalog/view/theme/default/template/module/carousel.tpl
catalog/view/theme/default/template/module/slideshow.tpl
all these files will be overwritten.

Unzip and upload the attached files. If you are using custom theme add the tpl files to the theme module folder with some adjustments if they are needed(check the originals and backup).
Refresh the modifications just in case some script is changing something there.
Adjust the css in the css file if you want and owl settings in the tpl files if you want following this documentation
Owl Carousel 2

Don't ask me for support I'm amateur in this :)

@straightlight.... These are the instructions we are trying to follow, but it doesn´t tell you which oc 2.2 files to update, nor which lines to add the code or simply recode. http://www.owlcarousel.owlgraphic.com/d ... ation.html

Is there a plugin that will take care of this..period. At this point, just rather pay than frying my brains and disrupting the peace of my environment due to this non-sense that should have been packed with the new OC versions that have come out ever since the whole world started complaining & asking about this upgrade.

My perceptions is that OC & Owl Carousel, both know about the issues and nuissances that this causes to the masses, and yet, don´t get together to fix the problem by simply delivering the NEW OC versions with what we are looking for ..... INFINITY ENDLESS LOOP Home page SLider.

PLease, to all you OC developers, i believe it´s time to package the new versions with default homeslider that works as, customers and web developers would like it to function.

THank you & Congrats on the dev. of OC, but minor issues like this can dramatically change the whole experience.

Followed is an attached XML file which includes the: banner, carousel and slideshow modules. Although, this has not been tested. A backup of your store would be suggested, in this case. Ensure to upload all JS and CSS updates of Carousel into your catalog/view/javascript/jquery/owlcarousel folder.

In addition, ensure to install & enable each desired modules of these threes from your admin - > extensions - > modules page. The view-source entries does appear accordingly on the browser. The VQMod Manager tool would be a great tool to monitor the changes that has been done from this XML file.

(Developed under Opencart v2.2.0.0 release)

An aside note would be to indicate to those who uses a custom theme to ensure the footer codes have been added to the right line location from your catalog/view/theme/<your_theme>/template/common/footer.tpl file.
