    Styling individual items of the carousel particle in Flux template?

    Posted 2 months 2 weeks ago
    • Hello,

      I have inserted the Carousel particle in the Layout of a Joomla-Flux template's outline and want to style the individual items of the carousel. Whilst the Block tab of the Carousel particle allows CSS ID and CSS Class to be defined in the standard way, I could not find how Classes and IDs could be defined for the individual items (slides) that can be specified for the Carousel. I therefore searched the Forum and found the following post:

      rockettheme.com/forum/gantry-solved-thre...ides?start=0#1371622

      As the Carousel in Flux, unlike the Owl Carousel, has not had this functionality included, I wonder whether:

      a) the workardound described in the post would work with the Carousel particle in Flux. If not,
      b) there is another way of styling individual items / slides in that particle
      c) the functionality of styling individual items is likely to be added to the Carousel particle in the near future
      d) the Owl Carousel can be installed in the Flux template and, if so, how that can be done. (I noticed on the Gantry 5 Particles List by template that the Owl Carousel is not flagged for the Flux template, but am not sure whether that means that the two are incompatible or simply that the particle is not shipped in the standard version of the template).

      Any comments from someone who has experience with this would be appreciated.


      Details of the versions:
      Joomla 3.9.11
      Flux: 1.1.1

    • Hi Damir,

      Should I interpret your answer to mean that with the Flux template there is no easy way to implement a carousel in which each slide/item can be styled separately (even just to change font size of the text and background colour)?

      Thanks,

      Carl

    • Sorry, Damir, can't give you site & FTP access. I have just been able to style the text successfully through inline CSS in the Caption field for each item, but that is not a very elegant way of doing it, I think. Is there a list of predefined HTML elements for that particle that can be styled in the custom.css?
