Some one recently posted a website showcase to this forum. On the home page he had his clients business logos scrolling across the page from left to right in an infinite loop. Some one on that forum thread asked how this was done and told to contact the admin of that website. I did this and didn’t hear back from them. I think they have also removed their website, perhaps he was getting too many requests from people asking the same question. Ismael, on the of the mods posted how to do it this way…. “Hi,
The rotating company logos are made using the Layer Slider. It is a very wide single image with the logo laid out, moving from right to left on an infinite loop.
However, this only explains the obvious but not what settings were used or which slider to use.
Can someone please shed some light on this. I am building a client website now who has requested this feature. I’ve been at it for 8 hours now and cannot figure it out.

I tagged this thread for Ismael. I never saw this logo carousel myself and I’m also clueless at this point.

I believe what that user did was create a strip of logos that were a single image. Not each logo individually but one wide image with all of the logos on it.
You then add that as a “slide” for any of the sliders and make it auto rotate with similar images showing multiple inline logos.

Thanks for replying. As mentioned in my original request what you’ve said is what Ismael said originally but doesn’t help. I know the logos are one long strip (That’s the obvious part) but what exact settings are used to create ‘Auto Rotate’? I can’t find it.
This does not make sense…
“You then add that as a “slide” for any of the sliders and make it auto rotate with similar images showing multiple inline logos.”
I can assure you that I am not an idiot. So far this has been the only thing that has stumped me with the theme. It is surprisingly difficult to make this simple transition happen. I am not alone as others have asked the same question and have given up. I almost gave up too and had to do a hack version just to keep my client happy.
So could I please get step by step instructions on how to do it as originally requested. Even screen shots would be bloody nice.

On your Advanced Layout Editor layout drag and drop an Easy Slider into your layout. Next, click the button to add an image and add your image(s) into the slideshow.
Now that your images are in the slideshow you can adjust the options to make it transition, autorotation, autorotation duration and that is all there is to it.
To see an example of adding an Easy Slider watch this video at the marked time where I add one in and modify its settings: https://vimeo.com/64927358#t=183August 9, 2013 at 12:16 pm #133112
Nope. That didn’t help. I was asking what those settings would be?
The options are as follows…
Slideshow Image Size
(I check ‘no scalling’ which doesn’t work either, makes it smaller than it really is)
( Checked to ‘Slide’)
(Checked to ‘Yes’)
Slideshow autorotation duration
(You have several options to choose from beginning from 3 seconds to 100)
The image just sites on the screen and does nothing.
None of these options allow the big long strip of logos to scroll from left to right in a seamless endless loop????
PS. This is what I want to do…August 9, 2013 at 1:22 pm #133113
That is completely different than what I’m suggesting and really we are not able to walk you through creating it. We don’t have an open book for every effect possible with the LayerSlider.
What that appears to be is a LayerSlider slideshow set to autorotation with multiple slides of the same image repeated and animated on top of itself 8 times.
So this image: http://clientbased.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/CBS-client-logos.jpg is in the LayerSlider 8 times and each is animated to get that effect.
The exact details of it are unknown without seeing it live.
For the above settings, if you have multiple images in your slideshow and they are not animating you are probably on WordPress 3.6 but not Enfold version 1.9.1. If you are not, then you need to add multiple images in order for the slider to animate.August 10, 2013 at 12:25 am #133114
I’m sorry for any confusion but I’m not sure how I could have explained it any better. A series of client logos that slide from left to right in an infinite loop? I thought we were on the same page after you mentioned that the trick is in the fact that the logos are on one big horizontal strip. Are well, hence my creating a sample for you to get the message through. This is surprisingly difficult to explain online. I think this is why others have given up.
I really appreciate all your help Devin. I understand this is outside of the scope of the support forum. This is more of a trick as opposed to a technical issue with the platform. It’s apparent now that this effect cannot be achieved with the current platform. The sample I showed you was a website I built. This was the only way I could get the image to slide but it’s only a hack. It will stop animating after 3 or 4 mins once the layer sliders finish.
I am on the latest version of Enfold 1.9.1 on another site and the effect still does not work with your mentioned settings.
We can leave this now. I’ll just hope that no one else asks for this effect :)
Keep up the great work Devin.
PS. I know you guys don’t have an open book for every possible effect (geez!!!!). I was just asking the same question that many other users have tried to ask and I thought it would be okay to ask on this forum. I did mention in my original post that I did try to contact the admin of the website that originally had that effect (they used Enfold) and they did not get back to me. I was trying to do the right thing.
Maybe you guys could put up a tricks and tips page for stuff like this. So not a technical guide but step by step tutorials on how to do all kinds of things that people would never have thought of. This would be a “think outside of the box” section. I think you’ll find it would be very popular.
