A lot of employees slider

What do you do if you have a lot of employees. Is there a possibility to show the first 6. And than show all the other employees in a slider. So if you have 19 employees, the site doesnt get to long. But everyone does get shown?

Heyyy Awan,

That is a helpful feature… but then all the employees will never be shown.

Im in search for if I have 6 employees… 3 will be shown… and trough a slider and scroll bar people do have the possiblity to see the other employees.

Do you have suggestions? greets M

Hi,

Please confirm that you are using SiteOrigin Carousel widget to display the employee list.
If you are using it, you can customize the width of the widget’s row. Here is the steps:

  • Edit the widget:
  1. Edit the widget > Build post query http://prntscr.com/fod04w
  2. Set post types to “Employees” > then set post per page to “3” http://prntscr.com/fod0eg > Save.
  • Edit the row:
  1. Add a class name to the row: Edit Row > Row Class > then named it as emp-carousel http://prntscr.com/focy3l > Save.
  • Add custom CSS:
  1. Go to Customize > additional CSS > then add these CSS code:
.emp-carousel{
    width: 83% !important;
    margin: 0 auto;
}

Also you might need to adjust the value of the width (the percentage) from the custom CSS code in above to meet your need.

Super, great. There’s now a slider. Only it doesnt show the content; text and pictures? What do i miss.

Can i make it also look somehow as nice/professional as the present employees section?

Hi,

As default the Siteorigin post carousel widgets are using the featured image to displaying the thumbnail, but currently there is no option to upload a featured image to the employee post. So you have to activate it manually from:
Dashboard > Toolset > Post types > employees > check the “Thumbnail” option http://prntscr.com/fpb7fc

After you activate it, then you can upload your featured image from the employee post. But still, you cannot display the content/text for the carousel post, it will only displaying the featured image and the title only.

I don’t see the option thumbnail? But i do really want to see also text, so i rather use the current employees of the moesia (demo) theme that i already have

Is there then an option that i can create a scroll box, like the second picture. Instead of in this picture horizontal, could i create a vertical scroll for the section employees?

And for these different pieces of text, is there a way to create an option like the moesia header has. That each time i renew the page, i see another picture. In the employees section page, each time that i refresh the order of the different pieces of texts/pictures changes…

Hi,

If you want to use the FP:Employees widgets and enable the scroll bar, then you can use these CSS code below:

section.employees-area .container {
    height: 250px;
    overflow: auto;
}

Thanks… Maybe not the most attractive, but this is something that could work.

Does there also exist an option to make the different employees slide… a bit like the clients section? Because it looks like the siteorigin slider doesnt give this effect.
