    Default Well This Was a Pleasant Surprise! FULL WIDTH SLIDER/SLIDSHOW!?

    I wanted to use a 'Full Width' slider/slideshow for the banner of this site.

    So I immediately went to my WOW Slider... assuming Xara did not have one.
    WOW Is pretty good but I just don't like all the steps. (lazy)

    Something made me peek into the 'Content Catalog' just to see if... maybe? And bam! Thar it tiz! - a slide widget
    that lets you do full width... not very sophisticated but more than good enough for a quick banner...

    (I have to dig into the 'content catalog' a little deeper to see what else is lurking around there...)

    Just thought I'd mention it for those who may not have known this and might need it at some time...

    It lags on the load... I don't know why... or maybe it's just my system...?

    Just to warn you that your images will be hosted by Xara and I have had times when loading them was slow which will effect your SEO. Best method is using local storage, but then again you can get a big bang out of your money by using xbuilder.

    behzad... the Xara space is only temp...and I'll work out the loading thing and optimization later on. And it's funny you mention 'xbuilder'. Just yesterday I bought the whole enchilada from Michal Jarmoluk - all his templates and all the blocks. His stuff is great and one can 'learn' a lot from him. I had a lot of fun sending about 4 hours going through much of the material... I was happy to see that I know much of what he does... and even happier to see that I don't know very much of what he does...

    Hi Chris... yeah, I think I did. They were getting external feedback in favor of 'that' new logo thing that, that 'web guy' did. LOL
    But they're taking their sweet time on moving ahead... doesn't matter to me if they complete the job or kill it... why? Because I gots me money for what I did... LOL

    Thx, Cliff... Question: Do I need to use a certain pixel size for the width?
