Can summary block carousel do continuous loop forward (instead of fast-rewind backward)?

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I’m using a summary carousel block to display testimonials (actually blog posts). I click the right arrow to scroll through the testimonials. When I reach the last one, it stops and does this fast rewind left back to the first one.

Is it possible to add code so you can keep clicking the right arrow and it will keep cycling through in a continuous loop? I don’t want it to scroll automatically, I just want the right arrow (or left arrow) to keep cycling through instead of stopping at the end and then fast-rewinding back to the first one.

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!

Infinite loop currently not offered by default, you may want to implement a 3rd party carousel plugin such as swiper to support this

Hi Bangnank36,

I'm looking to do this for my carousel -- do you know where I can find out more on how to implement it?

Thanks! To get this effect, I actually created one long image that scrolls continuously

First create a 5900x390px image with your logos spaced out evenly (you can do this for free at Canva.com)

Then add the code below to CSS (replacing my URL image with your own)

Hope it works for you!

 

//auto-scrolling logos//
.slider {
  width: 135%;
  overflow: hidden;
  margin-left: -13vw;
  margin-right: 0vw;
  position: relative;
}

.slider .slider-image {
  background-image: url(https://static1.squarespace.com/static/60606ea81846b4151d82ec0b/t/60be85e8d976482627d1592a/1623098856396/Slider.png);
  width: auto;
  height: 150px;
  background-size: 2950px 200px;
  animation: slide 50s linear infinite;
}

@keyframes slide {
  from {background-position-x: 0px;}
    to {background-position-x: -2950px;}
}

Hi there, it's a code block with the following code:

<div class="slider">
  <div class="slider-image">
    
  </div>
</div>

Sorry I didn't think to include that in my previous message.

And thanks for finding/posting that video! I watched a similar one to figure out how to do it
