Hello everybody,

I am new to opencart and I am not a programmer so take it easy :) . I have installed opencart version 1.5.2.1 with auto install from my hosting provider. Everything seems to work fine except the slider and the carousel are not doing what I want them to do. Instead of being shown next to each other in the carousel they are shown below each other. The slider gives me the same problem. For a good clear view of what I am talking about take a look at www.schilderije.nl to see what I mean. The problem is not in the theme I installed because I had the problem before that. Thanks in advance for your help guys!

if (!) i'm getting you right, you want those two images to be shown in one slider. in this case you have a miss-conception in what you have to set up ;)
  • combine those two pictures into one banner: admin board → system → design → banners → insert → "bannername" → add banner x2 → choose images per banner -> save ... in fact, you can add as many pictures to a banner as you wish your slideshow to show.
  • go to: admin board → extensions → modules → slideshow → edit → remove all but one → select "bannername" (set in part 1) as banner → save
  • be happy ;D

ps.: in case you would like to have more control over how you slideshow behaves and perhaps even want some text shown alongside each of your images i may point out that i do sell some sort of exactly that :-P (see my signature)

Hi Droconut,

Thanks for your quick reply! You really made my day ;D . Your slider looks very nice and flexible. I will take a look at it.
Thanks again.
