  1. Does the carousel allow for a headline, text and link button to show up under the featured item in the carousel?

  2. Hello,

    This plugin is not working for me. It instructs me to add a New Carousel. I enter a name of Portfolio for the new carousel and hit save. The plugin appears to be saving the new carousel, however, nothing else happens. I go back to the Carousel page and it tells me again I have to add a carousel.


  3. Hello,

    I’m thinking about buying this plugin, but I have a question for you:

    I have been testing the demos and, in all of them, I’m not able to see the images in a bigger format. I mean… the front image of the carousel is not clickeable, so and I can’t see bigger.

    am I doing something wrong?


    • Hi,

      All the images in the carousel can have a link defined in the backend, to make them clickable. You can of course choose the images to use and use a bigger images in the carousel, or smaller ones 🙂

  4. Hello,

    Love the plugin, but it does not load consistently. Often one has to reload the page several times before the carousel will show up. I have even written some code into my functions php to make sure it is loading the script and it still does not work consistently. Have spent a lot of hours trying to make this work because the client really likes it. If you could please help me with this I would greatly appreciate it. The account this was purchased under was right4uwebdesigncom.

    Thank you,

  5. hi
    after purchasing and installing your iquery carousel evolution plugin for wordpress. i can’t get it to work. once i insert the short code it displays the pictures but not in a carousel but just in boxes one above the other. how can i fix that? thanks

    • Hi, please contact us from our codecanyon profile page with a link and admin access to your site and we’ll help you with your issue, thanks

  6. Love the carousel does every thing that I’m looking for and more. Just need to check if there is a setting to allow randomizing of the slides? This is for a sales production and I don’t want customers fighting for opening position on the carousel.



      • I think you should definately add image randomising as well as the ability for a user to define the position of each image. In my case, I needed to be able to change the first image shown and I found out that I could not, only after I setup my images. I think this is very basic and a future version should definately include it.


  7. Great plugin. One question – Is there a way to change the order of the items or easily change the starting point after creating them? The only way I’ve been able to do this is to delete the items and recreate them in the order I want them. This can be a major pain, especially when my Client isn’t very tech-savvy. Please let me know if there’s an easier way to achieve this. Thank you.

    • Hi,

      Thanks for the comment and note. Currently the plugin is not supporting what you described but we’ll keep that in note for a future improvement. Thanks a lot for the suggestion !

  8. Looks like a great plugin!

    Is there a way to have the slider scroll automatically?

    Example: rotates every 1 second to the photo to the right. Is this possible?


  9. Hi, i’m trying to put the slideshow in header.php but the strange thing is that this slideshow doesn’t give me the “PHP SHORTCODE” to insert in the template page which is “header.php” file. it just gives me the normal code to insert in the html source of articles or pages .
    Can you please help me to get the php code or any suggestion?


    • Hi,

      Did you try using the do_shortcode() WordPress function? The plugin doesn’t provide PHP functions to manually include the carousel. It’s all done through the shortcodes and the carousel generator tool. You can try using the do_shortcode function. If that’s works great, otherwise would need some customization and you can contact me through my codecanyon profile page for that, thanks !

  10. Hi, I’m planning to buy this carousel, I want to know if it is compatible to tablets/mobile (android/ipod/iphone)?

  11. Great plugin, overall. I’m having a small issue though – I’ve added 2 video carousels to a webpage. Whenever I select a video on the 2nd carousel, and it goes active, its src gets changed to the of the first carousel, so that is doesn’t play the videos in its carousel, but plays into the active video in the 1st carousel.

    Is there an easy fix for this? Does your plugin allow 2+ video carousels on the same webpage? Thanks.

    • Hi,

      For support please contact me through my codecanyon profile page with a link to your carousel and admin access and will check it out for you, thanks !

  12. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with your website.
    It appears like some of the text on your content
    are running off the screen. Can someone else please
    provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to
    them too? This might be a issue with my browser because
    I’ve had this happen before. Appreciate it

  13. First of all, I want to compliment you on a fabulous plugin, but the 2.2.1 version has a problem that took me quite a while to figure out and a lot of visits to different forums until I nailed it down. After installing this version, I began to experience a bug in the menu section when I tried to drag a new page or category. It began to create long lines of duplicate menu boxes and I was unable to use the menu correctly. After instructions from a forum, I uninstalled all my plugins and was able to find the culprit: version 2.2.1 of the Carousel Evolution. Going back to version 2.1.1 everything was fixed again.

  14. The support you get for this plugin is fantastic, I was in touch with Kire and he was not only helpful in solving my problem, he spent all the time it needed and he was so patient. and all this over Christmas.
    Thank you Yougapi and in particular Kire

  15. Hi, I want to buy your plugin to showcase my clients products (max 22 products), can the images link through to a page in my website when clicked? (I cant see this functionality in the demo)

  16. Want to buy just need to check, can images link to external URLs and can I set carousel slider to rotate (spin around) slowly, and when cursor is over image it stops?

  17. Hello this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if
    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted
    to get advice from someone with experience. Any help
    would be enormously appreciated!

    • WordPress blogs have a rich editor and you don’t need to know HTML to create pages, write articles, add images etc. We can help you getting a blog installed on your server (we can even buy for you and setup your domain name if you wish). Please contact us by email to discuss it: contact [at] yougapi [dot] com

  18. Hi there,


    Dec 20 19:15

    I bought jQuery Carousel Evolution for WordPress for 55$ two days ago. The download is not installable (said the failure-log)!
    We work with wordpress since a long time and never had this problem. What now?

  19. Hello,

    our customer likes the “Demo1”. But his desire is, to have a bigger picture in the middle. Is it possible to change the size of the front-image? We would like to clarify that before we buy the plugin. Thanks a lot.


    • The carousel comes with a generator enabling to play with the sizes (width and height) and effects. But the ratio between the first image and other images is already defined. To change that ratio that would need some customization done directly in the CSS files

  20. Just bought this plugin, but when adding a new carousel it says i dont have enough rights ? im admin on a fresh wp installation (v4.3)

  21. Hi, I purchased your plugin with custom dev last year and it has stopped working, I think it might have something to do with WP updates, please help asap…TIA
