Support » Plugin: WordPress Slider Block Gutenslider » Arrows and dots not showing

    Hello,

    We are an NGO and are experimenting with a new website. Your slide plugin look very very interesting. However we′ve encountered a problem.

    The problem is that the arrows and dots are visable in the editor but not in the preview. All other slide plugins are deactivated and we use the Twenty Twenty WP theme. All extra css is deleted.

    Why could this be?

    Thank you
    David

    Hey @carldavidcarlstrom,

    happy to help NGOs. You enabled the “fullscreen background slider” option. That is meant for sliders being fixed in the back of a page and the content scrolling on top of it. see the example here https://gutenslider.org/examples/fullscreen-background-slider-example/. As dots and arrows would not be navigable in that case, they are disabled on fullscreen background sliders. If you want to show dots and arrows, you can still just set the slider height to 100% and see if that suits you.

    Does this answer your question @carldavidcarlstrom ?

    Hello!

    I did not receive an e-mail about your reply, strange. Just now again played around with your slider again, disabled the fullscreen mode and then saw it working whereafter I went in here to tell you and then saw this reply from you. Haha.

    Ok!

    When I put the slider to 100% height and Full width in a container, then a 20px white barrier show on each side of slider and on mobile it look much worse. It would require some work from my side.

    The fullscreen mode which you offer looked great by the way and we can showcase our work very good with it! Both on a desktop, tablet and mobile. If just the dots and arrows could have been visable on the full screen mode, then it would have been the spot on plugin slider we searched for. Already tried SmartSlider3, SA, Block Slider (no support as of yet).

    Thanks for the response.

    On another point.

    It would be very interesting to be able to set your slider sliding vertically. Especially if you have it as a full screen mode, then the seperate areas of the “page” is instead formed in sliders which can be much more practical for managing content but also for readers. Sliding vertically is very social media-like and could be attractive to the visitors of a website.

    “they are disabled on fullscreen background sliders”

    Could they be enabled? It would be very nice to be able to toggle that funtion.

    Thanks for a great plugin.

    Yes, we already develop new arrows and we will make sure they are enabled on fullscreen background sliders. The idea of fullscreen background sliders was to be sliding in the background, i.e. not adding controls, that will overflow all content. But, as you require it, we will implement a solution that will let users set the z-index of the arrows, and enable them on fullscreen background sliders again.

    Wow!

    Thank you very much. I recently tried the Getwid Gutenberg plugin and their Media and Text slider (check it out) and was considering trying their slider out. It worked out quite good on desktop, somewhat good on mobile (yours is perfect). But your options for managing dots and arrows are very helpful. Your original idea is still good, but I understand it will be a toggle function now and look very forward to use it.

    Thank you again for a quick response and being very helpful.

    Hello again,

    Today I noticed an update of the Gutenslider to “fix dots and arrow enable/disable in free version”.

    I am very interested to know what the change was and if it concerned my initial support question. If it did then I′m happy to know about it.

    Thanks for a great plugin.

    Hey @carldavidcarlstrom,

    the fix is not directly related to your support request. I will look back into it tomorrow. Can you summarize again shortly what the issue is now?

    (@carldavidcarlstrom)

    Being able to show the dots and arrows in the full screen mode. Right now apparently it is disabled from your end.

    @carldavidcarlstrom and do you want to show content in top or just media?
