I suggest you ...

increase the time images appear on the home page carousel

We use the homepage image carousel for advertising events but at present the pictures change fairly rapidly thus loosing some of the impact. Can a function be added where a webmaster has say an option of selecting the time duration that images will appear for before changing to the next image.

This is not on our roadmap.

Since this request was filed, we have made a large number of improvements to homepage designs and now offer a large number of templates to choose from. This should help you promote your events and sponsors to great effect.

    Any updates on this Pitchero, again surely another easy thing to programme into the system?

    I agree - sometimes you want more time so it would be good if we could select this from the control panel.

    Agree with Steve Castle, we embed text within our homepage images at http://www.glenrothescc.co.uk and they're never really shown quite long enough to take in all the info. A time setting in the admin area based on seconds per change or even fast, medium, slow would be ideal.

    Gareth,

    Had previously tried your suggestion. As far as I can make out, and to date this has always turned out to be the case, the pictures uploaded into the editing tool then appear in a random order on the homepage carousel so if you have for example three advertisement you want to have on view so you add say each advertisement three times in order they do not always appear consecutively on the homepage. Obviously Works fine when you want to display one key advert so just have one photo in the carousel but as most clubs there is always a multitude of events etc going on at the same time that the club wants advertised. Obviously the events page provides this but having a bit more visualisation aids to the cause as well as breath life into the website. Appreciate you showing interest

    Have you tried putting the same image in a number of times? Yes it will change but change to itself as it were & give the impression of being up for longer. Just a thought in case they don't implement your suggestion. Gareth
