    Hello
    One question: is it possible to run the featured slider backwards? So first comes the last picture and then continues at the front e.g. 190, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 10, 9, ……
    Many thanks for your response.
    With kind regards

    @henebe: Hello Heinz,
    You seem to be using Custom type Featured Slider. So to change the order of the images in slider you will need to re upload the images in the customizer in the order you want.

    Hello Skandha
    Yes, I don’t see any other solution. I only want to display images and not pages. Why I got the idea to display the slider backwards. The newest pictures are always the last and so I could always display the last pictures first.
    I’ve already asked if the images can be displayed randomly. You wrote to me that I had to solve a programming assignment. For me there are 2 options:
    I can either set the order I want or the pictures come in a random order. How much effort would this be to implement?
    With kind regards

    @henebe: Hello Heinz,
    If you are to use post/page or category slider it is possible to display the slider images randomly by create a child theme and doing a little bit of customization.

    I will guide you if you are willing to give it a try.
    Kind Regards,

    @henebe: Hello Heinz,
    To create a child theme you can use our plugin Generate Child Theme.

    Install and Activate the plugin
    Then,
    Go to => Dashboard => Generate Child Theme => Select Parent Theme as Catch Fullscresn Pro and fill in remaining fields and Click on Generate.

    This will create and activate the child theme.

    Now,
    Go to => Child Theme Folder => create new folder inc. Inside the inc folder create a file featured-slider.php and add the code in this link.

    Let me know if this works out!
    Kind Regards,

    Hello Skandha
    Now I’ve done that. But all my attitudes have disappeared. It looks like I’m starting again. Did I do something wrong or do I not understand something?

    @henebe: Hello Heinz,
    All your work is saved in your parent theme.

    To check,
    Go to => Appearance => Themes => Activate the parent theme Catch Fullscreen Pro.

    Let me know if your work is saved in the parent theme.

    Hello Hallo Skandha
    Fortunately everything is there :-).
    But what do I have to do again so that the slider images are displayed in a random order? Or better, what exactly did this change cause? And why does a sub-theme have to be installed here?

    @henebe: Hello Heinz,
    You will need to migrate your customizer settings from parent theme to the child theme. For that you can use our plugin Catch Import/Export.

    First you will need to activate your parent theme and import the cutomizer settings file. Then, activate your child theme and export the customizer settings file you imported earlier.

    For instructions you can check out the Instructions tab in this link.

    Since to randomize the slider images theme file needs to be altered and if you alter the parent theme file the changes you make will be lost after you update to the latest version. So to avoid that a child theme is created and the necessary changes is made in the child theme.

    Let me know if this works out!

    Hello Skandha
    I can save the settings of the theme. But if I have activated the subordinate theme and then want to import the settings, the following message appears:
    Error importing settings! Please check that you uploaded a customizer export file.
    With kind regards

    Hello Skandha
    Now I have captured the images for the feature slider in posts. With the slider category, these are then displayed in the slider. I figured out how to align the images:
    # feature-slider-section .post-2572.hentry {
    background-position: 95% 100%! important;
    }
    Gene I would like to hide the titles in the page. I didn’t find out. In addition, the images are not displayed using a random generator. The order is always the same, despite the creation of the PHP file.
    I would be very happy if you could help me here.
    With kind regards

    Hello Skandha
    Now I can hide the titles in the slider using CSS.
    .post .entry-title {
    display: none;
    }
    But the title background bar is still there and I don’t know how to hide it. If you could tell me about the CSS, I would be very grateful.
    With kind regards
