How can I to modify the carousel items?

To modify the carouselís items you must to display the code view in Dreamweaver, and search the javascriptís code for carousel generation. For example, suppose that you have the following javascript code (the fragment in bold is the items definition):

jQuery(function()
{$("#carousel").postcarousel({"width":"300","height":"300","animation":"1","animation_timeout":5000,"fade_timeout":1000,"show_menu":"1","show_title":"1","target":"_blank","title_position":["top","left"],"title_color":"#FFFFFF","title_font":"Arial","title_size":"22px","show_image":"1","image_position":["top","right"],"show_frame":"1","frame_color":"#666666","frame_width":"50%","frame_opacity":"0.8",
"datasource":[
{"title":"First Post","link":"http://mywebsite/first-post","image":"images/1.jpg"},
{"title":"Second Post","link":"http://mywebsite/second-post","image":"images/2.jpg"},< br /> {"title":"Third Post","link":"http://mywebsite/third-post","image":"images/3.jpg"}
]
});})

To modify the items list you only must to change the text in bold.

To add a new item (for example the fourth post), the related code will be:

"datasource":[
{"title":"First Post","link":"http://mywebsite/first-post","image":"images/1.jpg"},
{"title":"Second Post","link":"http://mywebsite/second-post","image":"images/2.jpg"},
{"title":"Third Post","link":"http://mywebsite/third-post","image":"images/3.jpg"},
{"title":"Fourth Post","link":"http://mywebsite/fourth-post","image":"images/4.jpg"}
]

To remove an item from the list (for example the second post), you must to remove the object related with the item:

"datasource":[
{"title":"First Post","link":"http://mywebsite/first-post","image":"images/1.jpg"},
{"title":"Third Post","link":"http://mywebsite/third-post","image":"images/3.jpg"},
{"title":"Fourth Post","link":"http://mywebsite/fourth-post","image":"images/4.jpg"}
]

Edit an item is as simple as modify the related attribute.

I want to modify some attributes in the carousel configuration, How is that possible?

To modify the configuration of carousel is necessary to vary the value of attributes directly on the web page code. Please, display the code view in Dreamweaver, and search the fragment of code where the carousel is generated. Finally, change the value of configuration attribute.

The code of carousel is similar to:

<script>
jQuery(function(){$("#carousel").postcarousel({
"width":"300px",
"height":"300px",
"animation":"1",
"animation_timeout":5000,
"fade_timeout":1000,
"show_menu":"1",
"show_title":"1",
"target":"_blank",
"title_position":["top","left"],
"title_color":"#FFFFFF",
"title_font":"Arial",
"title_size":"22px",
"show_image":"1",
"image_position":["top","right"],
"show_frame":"1",
"frame_color":"#666666",
"frame_width":"50%",
"frame_opacity":"0.8",
"datasource":[
{"title":"First Post","link":"http://mywebsite/first-post","image":"images/1.jpg"},
{"title":"Second Post","link":"http://mywebsite/second-post","image":"images/2.jpg"},
{"title":"Third Post","link":"http://mywebsite/third-post","image":"images/3.jpg"}
]});})</script>

The possible values for each attribute are described in the productís web page.

Iím using an external source for carouselís items, but the items are not loaded.

First all, you should check the attribute "url", passed to the "postcarousel" routine in the web page, be sure that the "url" defined is reachable from carousel.

Second, the external source of items must to generate the list of items as a JSON object with the following structure:

{
"items":[
{"title":"title of first item", "image":"location of image of first item", "link":"url of web page of first item"},
{"title":"title of second item", "image":"location of image of second item", "link":"url of web page of second item"},
{"title":"title of third item", "image":"location of image of third item", "link":"url of web page of third item"}
]
}

Setting writing permissions to a folder.

On Linux/Unix based webservers, FTP programs ("clients") allows setting permissions for files and directories on your remote host. This function is often called chmod or set permissions in the program menu.

Writing permissions is similar to "777" permissions or "rwx-rwx-rwx" permissions. You may see some of these representation in your FTP program.

On Windows based webservers the permissions should be set through the webhosting control panel.
