I’m creating a LayerSlider and my client wants me to use a thin font along the lines of this https://www.dropbox.com/s/7g4mx6cfdtauq6m/BannerFont.jpg
Can you either recommend one to try or point me in the direction of where I see which fonts are available.
I’m assuming it’s better to add it as text in the slider as opposed to a graphic PNG?

It depends on how important that specific text is for the site. Kriesi used images for text specifically to make it easier for the whole slide to be responsive and it worked out very well.
Others have added in other fonts either through @font-face or a plugin which lets you choose google fonts from a dropdown and then targeting your slide elements with a specific css class.
No really “right” way but either is available to you.

P.S. I also can’t work out how to loop it. It currently finishes and then stops. Please can you point me in the right direction.January 7, 2014 at 6:01 am #206135
The login credentials are not working. Like Devin said, Kriesi uses graphic images instead of actual text. It gives you more control over the look of the slider because browsers render fonts differently.

Hi Sorry the Catalysis should have been with a lowercase c:
I think I’m clear on the font issue.
The one outstanding issue is how do I make the homepage LayerSlider loop? It currently stops when it finishes.
Any ideas would be much appreciated.January 7, 2014 at 1:14 pm #206289
In WordPress dashboard please go to LayerSlider WP and edit your homepage slider and in Global Settings and set Loops to 0 http://i.imgur.com/WGkyiFa.jpg

Hi Yigit, I’ve already got it set to 0 but it’s not working! Any other ideas?January 7, 2014 at 6:11 pm #206395
Do you mind creating a temporary admin login and posting it here privately so we can take a look?
YigitJanuary 7, 2014 at 6:15 pm #206399January 7, 2014 at 11:33 pm #206524
That is because you have only one slide. You can duplicate the current slide so there could be 2 of the same slide and it could be on loop

Thanks Yigit, for some reason when I duplicate the slide and save the changes it then doesn’t work. I basically want a 10 second gap before it just starts again. I don’t want the viewer to realise it’s a different slide just the same thing playing over and over again.January 8, 2014 at 3:06 pm #206834January 8, 2014 at 5:33 pm #206906
Would you mind responding to my last message, I’m trying to get the site ready to go live tomorrow and this is one of the last things to sort out.

As i see that you have already turnt off all controllers on the slider. I have duplicated your homepage slider and set to display for 30 seconds.
