Full page background slider and featured page

Post by Beata » Tue Jul 11, 2023 2:11 pm

I want to make a full page background slider like this
https://www.vilniaustautodaile.lt/ for the first page, and make a featured one on another page.
Is that possible? Now I have 2 featured pages. Of course the first should be not featured, maybe blank?

How solve it better? Thank you for advise and suggestion in advance. In that mentioned site I don't have featured page, is it good?

I'm not sure how you would implement something like that. I will point out that it has some glaring website accessibility issues. 1. There is no way to stop the transition, this is not good for people with siezure disabilities or cognitive disabilities. Any type of movement on the page should either stop after a short period of time, or there should be a way for the user to stop the motion. 2. Color contrast issues with the line below the navigation, even the darker text is hard to read between the motion, and the transparent background, also the navigation in the right center of the page is hard to read on the transparent background. I'm not saying you should or shouldn't do it, but if you do, make sure users can pause, and manually switch between images if they want, and make sure any text or links have an adequate color contrast with the background.

Thank you for your opinion. I will think about it.
I did deactivate all modules on first page but than I have black tape in the middle of page (position debug) and that isn't good...
Maybe somebody else will write some suggestions?

Hi. Have a look at https://extensions.joomla.org/extension ... slideshow/ or similar.

Your other explanations are not entirely clear. Provide a link to your site where we can see that you are trying to do and more accurate explanations.

It is not entirely clear what is the "pages" in your context. Are these real separate pages or screens of the one page?

I had already given up on that idea...

My new site is https://www.lbks.lt/kt/index.php/lt/home-main
This is aditional page HOME blank page - test page
1. You see black tape in the center, it is from debug position. How to give up it?

In normal page https://www.lbks.lt/kt/index.php/lt/ (my featured page "TITULINIS") it is at the very bottom

It is not from debug position. It is Footer section from template.

If you want to delete it completely only on the Home page, you have two options.

1) Create a copy of the template style, go to the Template settings> Layout tab and delete the Footer section. Then assign this template style for the Home page.

Or

2) In the Home page menu item settings, add your own class name for page. For example my-home-page and use CSS.

Code: Select all

.my-home-page #sp-footer {
	display: none;
}

Yes, I tried it on my French Home page, but it doesn't work
and when came back I don't find these codes again, the field was empty. Last time I even disable my editors.

This cannot but work. Describe in detail all your steps

What does the editors are here?

You should add a class in the menu item settings and add CSS code to your custom.css file. Read Helix documentation about custom.css file

P.S. If I will add codes to custom.css, the footer will be deleted on all website, or only in home page? I need footer for other pages

}
My editor JCE deactivated, choose NONE
In Page Display tab > Page Class field you should add only class name (my-home-page), not code. Look at my screenshot.
Then create custom.css file in /templates/shaper_helixultimate/css/ (It is not exist by default, you should create it manually). And then add the code to this file.

Code: Select all

.my-home-page #sp-footer {
	display: none;
}

Footer will be hidden on those pages in the Page Class field of which you will add my-home-page. On all other pages, the Footer will be shown.

Thank you, Pavel, very much. Everything is OK. The footer is disappeared on all Home pages.
Just a short question, off topic though...
Maybe you know, where I could translate the words "Sign in" on Lithuanian home page. They are on white tape.

Hi.

Select language (1)
Create new one (2)

Add the constant HELIX_ULTIMATE_SIGN_IN_MENU (1)
Enter the value for your language (2) and save
