Wells Theme Gallery Customization

Recommended Posts

Site URL: http://www.lusmith.com

hi peeps,

I'm looking for a solve in the Wells template. Essentially, I'd like to add a text/ copy page to the gallery carousel; pulling from the site's CSS. I really like the stock functionality of Wells, however the gallery only permits imagery. I'm wanting to use the text/copy page to serve as an introduction to the work presented. I've played around with using text as JPGs, but I'd lose SEO going that route.

I've attached a sketch to illustrate the ambition 😬

Any advice and/or direction to solve this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks a mil!

In version 7.0, I think we could create a blog page (located in Not Linked) for the item you want to show . In your main page, add a summary block that choose the blog page. After that, you can set style of carousel for summary block.

Hope that it makes sense

Thanks for this Bangank!

Is there a way to use the full width of the gallery but insert the [Not Linked] blog page? I'd like to keep the functionality/ UI of the gallery but be able to insert text into the carousel.

Have you solved it yet?
