I used to have a blog on BlogSpot. I hardly ever received comments there, the main reason I gave it up, but a friend set up a lovely carousel of my book covers. A BIG carousel! I loved it.
Last evening I went poking around in the widgets here on WP and came across the gallery widget, which offers several ways to display a group of pictures, including a carousel. Excited and worried that I wouldn’t be able to set it up right, I gave it a try and discovered it’s not hard at all. Hooray!
After adding the four book covers for my Texas Devlins series, I hit publish. Or was it save? I’m not sure. Anyway, I immediately went to my front page to look at the carousel — and was very disappointed. The pictures are so small! Just look at it over there to the right. You can barely read my book titles. Sheesh!
So, I contacted a nice member of the WP support team who helped me solve another problem with the sidebar a few days ago. I asked her if it’s possible to enlarge the carousel images. She politely replied that the size is constrained by the dimensions of the carousel. In other words, no.
Am I frustrated? You know it!
