Media Carousel Widget (Pro)

The Media Carousel widget allows you to create a slider of videos and images.


The widget includes 3 skins:

  1. Carousel is the standard rotating carousel skin that shows a customized number of image or video slides per view. 
  2. Slideshow is a slider skin that displays one primary slide and small image thumbnails below.
  3. Coverflow is a slider skin that shows a central slide in the front and two side slides in the back. 

Inside each slide, you can add the image or video, and have it link to its media file or an external link. The carousel can display a mixture of both images and videos at once.
If you have Lightbox enabled, this will also be available for this widget.

The Media Carousel widget also has options for optimal display on mobile devices.
