Topic: carousel-thumbnails with large number of images

E-Trace premium asked 3 years ago


I have a question about the carrousel with thumbnails. I can't seem to find any info on how to change how the thumnails are shown. We use a large number of images, so it doesn't make sense to show them all in one go. It would make a lot more sense for us, if the thumbnail bar could scroll horizontally. Is this possible?

Expected behavior

The carrousel has a property to set how many thumbnails are shown. When the amount of thumbnails is larger than this number, an arrow is shown to scroll through the thumbnails

Actual behavior

The carrousel shows all the available images as thumbnails, making them very small when there are more than, let's say 20

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.)

@E-Trace The thumbnail carousel is not suited for use with such a large number of images, we currently don't plan to add new features to this component. In this case, we recommend using a standard carousel.

Please insert min. 20 characters.
