First, I purchased this theme after first viewing the other themes by Kriesi, reading many posts in the support pages for those themes, and viewing the live demos and screen shots. I almost purchased Kriesi's DISPLAY theme a few weeks ago, but decided to build some content first (mainly slides for my slider and some post content).
I created a set of custom image/text slides for the slider in Kriesi's DISPLAY theme (in anticipation of moving to that theme)...then I saw this new theme Avisio.
I have a need to show many slides (my slides ARE the main content, not just a teaser to some page). So, I have 60+ slides and many more to come in the future. My slides were created at 940 x 420 size (recommended at the time...a few months ago...by Kriesi for the other/older theme that was using CU3ER as the slider).
The Avisio slider slides are 940 x 440. I saw in the forum threads that a user can change the slide height (so the slides do not get squished or stretched). So, I am OK with that.
My concern is the number of slides I can use in Avisio.
I seem to recall reading one of the threads said to only use about 5 slides MAXIMUM for the slider. ??
I suppose that had something to do with the display of the slider THUMBS beneath the slider.
So, please answer these questions for me:
1. How many slides can I have in Avisio using the AVIA SLIDER? Is it "unlimited?" (I may want to have 250 in the future.)
2. Will I need to eliminate the slider THUMBS from the home page IF and WHEN I have more than 5-7 slides? Is that easy to do?
Can you recommend an alternative IF there is some inherent reason for NOT using so many slides on the slider in THIS theme?
Please understand that the slides are already built, I don't want them stretched, and they have text on them, and they are the content that I want people to see. In other words, I don't want a theme SLIDER that only shows 5 - 7 slides. That would be too limiting.
