Topic: Multi-Item Carousel - you are hiding 2/3rd of the items on small screens... !

IMJE pro asked 6 years ago

Hi, what is the point of having carousel items like your code: div class="col-md-4 hidden-sm-down" when this results in only two-rhirds of all items being displayed on small screens? I want to list three partner links at a time, and one at a time on small screens, not hide most of them - surely most other users want the same behaviour, so it would be nice if you bothered to show a "working" solution without us having to code around these shortcomings. Thanks for considering this improvement and hopefully update the example with a better one.

Hello IMJE and Josh, thank you for your comments and advices. This issue with carousel is on our 'to do' list and we will fix this very soon. And about small devices, like phones, we also try to create more and more 'mobile-first' templates and components. We appreciate your advices and we'll take them into consideration. Best, Marta

This is problematic for me as well. Any update on the fix?

Hi IMJE, I completely understand the frustration here. I remember running into the same problem a while back when testing with templates on small devices and put the issue to the side. We are going to need to revisit this again very soon for a customer, but I can't remember which template we were testing with. Can you link to the demo template on MDB's site that you're referring to? In general, using stock templates to build off of, versus hand coding, we've noticed (in particular) the rendering of text and images on "small devices", specifically, viewports between 360px and 390px, seemed to be an after thought. Although the work put into the stock templates is beautiful and saves us time in many areas (which is why we purchased MDB)... it seems as though they were built to look the best on viewports of 768px and higher. IMO, templates should always be built starting with the smallest screen size supported and then move up, viewport size by viewport size. Just my 2 pennies. Thanks, Josh
