I have a video embedded as one of the slides in my slider. I would like to display start and stop buttons so that a viewer can easily stop the slideshow to view the video.

Is there a way to do this?

Hi,

Unfortunately Themler Slider does not have such feature. But the Slider stops on mouse hover if the following option is enabled:

Thank you,

HI Olivia,
Thank you for your thoughts, thats a good idea. I tried it, but it doesn't prevent the slideshow from moving on if the viewer moves their mouse. At that point the video becomes annoying because it continues to play even as the slide show advances.

If the viewer hasn't been watching carefully, they will have no idea where the audio they are hearing is coming from.
Appreciate you taking the time to answer my question.

Use some plugin and set it in Widget control. There are hundreds like this.

Hi Stagger Lee,
Are you thinking a video slider plugin? I wasn't sure how to get it to work with Themler.
Thanks,
Susie

  • Insert one WIdget control right above slider.
  • Name it something like "Slider".
  • Delete original TH slider.
  • Install some WP plugin with support for images/videos/play/start buttons
  • Add text widget in Slider widget area and use slider plugin shortcode there.

It is all.

Thank you! I was afraid to try anything that may break Themler. I will give this a try.

Hi Stagger-Lee,
Do you have any recommendations of a video/image slider that will work with Themler?

I purchased WD Slider, which is a great plugin, but does not work well when Themler puts brackets around the shortcode to hide it on smaller screens. If the window goes from large to small and back to large, the slider takes on a tiny size that only shows the navigation controls.

I read that the Revolution Slider may work, but I don't want to keep buying plugins and finding out they don't work well with Themler. Any suggestions would be better than me just guessing. :-)
Thanks,
Susie

Hello Susie,
I've just visited the http://dev.huckleberryforks.com/ and played with different screen sizes. I cannot reproduce the issue like on screenshot

What special steps are needed?

Aileen,
Thank you for taking a look at my site. I had just finished getting rid of the WD Slider that was not working with Themler.
My client wants this website published tomorrow, and I just couldn't wait anymore for help.
But I think all is well, I purchased Revolution Slider and I think it will be a great fit with this website.

That is why I allways use nulled warez plugins and test them on one garbage localhost site.
If I am pleased developer is pleased as I buy licence after. if I am not pleased nobody gets hurt because I delete plugin from localhost.

Acording to demos it is possible without a plugin. I will test it later.

It is not so easy. Seems as some Bootstrap JS parts are missing from Themler. I could not make even demos to work before I downloaded carousel part from Bootstrap website and added code at the end of script.js (just for test).

Can you ship Bootsrap with Themler complete ?

Hi Stagger Lee,
I'm afraid the more technical parts of this post go over my head :-)

I'm not exactly sure what BootStrap means, and am not sure how to test if Themler has all its bootstrap parts.

I do know that Themler shows some BootStrap options, but I haven't fooled with them.

It doesnt work without this part. Themler has no complete Bootstrap code.

I ended up using Revolution slider to get the video in the slider. Thanks for all your help.
