Responsive Slideshow

Post by jackprince » 12 May 2021, 08:57

Hello community,

I face the following problem.
I'd like to have a slideshow either as/in a module or plugin.

But failed to accomplish the following:
  • responsive (so full width on desktop, no heavy cropping on mobile view)
  • no links (tried bxslider which always had a ">" on the image and a link around the images)
  • no extra whitespace on the images when on mobile view (which likely will be fixed by making sure all the images are the same size)
From the top of my head I think of something like using the images as background on an element and stretching them via "cover".
I did not work with Phoca Gallery for a while so please excuse if I fail to find the obvious.

Is there a way to create a custom template for either a plugin or module to use?

Any help or suggestion is appreciated.

Hi, try to see this module:
https://www.phoca.cz/phoca-carousel-module
It is not related to Phoca Gallery only, you can select image you need, but it is responsive and includes a lot of different features needed in slideshows.

Wow. That fit what I needed extremely well. Is there any such solution for the slideshows in the article? Thank you so much. It looks wonderful in my phone. If there is any additional concerns or warnings, I would love to be told or pointed to sources where I could be informed about them. 8)

Thanks for the response Jan.
Will test this out. As I encountered the next issue with the plugin. Which is that the z positioning was somehow always over a menu.
Tried to change the z-index values for the menu accordingly. But somehow the plugin still was over the menu.

Yes, unfortunately, regarding z-index, it needs to be properly checked, which part on the website has the larget z-index value (this is common problem when a system is built by many different parts made by different developers) :idea:
