I need to setup a Carousel Remote to 2 different carousels.
In matter of fact, it works.
My questions are:
1) Is it supposed to work? Since the settings ask for an "Unique" ID, I wonder if you will "fix" this in the future? Or can I use this it?
2) It is not perfect. Besides the Remote navigation can control both carousels, it is required to disable the navigation on both carousels (drag, dots and arrows) because one carousel navigation does not affect the another. Do you plan to make it work?
Thank you for contacting POSIMYTH Support.
As per the default widget structure, the widget will work as per advertised as customizing the code is not possible as it will need some major code update from our end.
We are trying to make our widget more user-friendly and easy to use so that the settings won't get complicated and conflict with each other.

Thanks for answering, Deekshit,
I understand you don't intend to add new functionalities;
But it was not clear for me: Can I use this as it is today?
I'm concerned if it one day it will get an update that blocks this, since it is not exactly the adverstised.
And for general suggestion, for me the best plugins are those which has wordpress hooks, filters and actions.
Since plugins developers can't keep adding functionalities whenever customers asks, when we need it, it is great when you give as shortcuts. And it doesn't affect the experience to general users.
Thanks for writing back, as shown on our demo site the widget will be working accordingly. Since you are using the carousel remote the default carousel anything dots, and other navigation options will not work.
Please let us know if you have any further queries.
Thanks for replying, Deekshit,
Sorry, but my question was not answered. Let me rephrase.
I need one single Carousel Remote to control two Carousels at same time.
It currently works. If you put the same Unique ID in both Carousels, the Remote can control both simultaneously.
I understand the built-in navigation in Carousel will not work on each other. That is ok.
My question is if it is supposed to work and if I can use this as it is.
Since it asks an "Unique ID" and it is not adverstised, do you intend to keep it working? Or it isn't supposed to work, and you will fix this "unexpected" feature in some upgrade?
Yes, you can use a single carousel remote widget and use it on 2 different carousel widget and use it on your site.
You can add a Unique ID and add the same ID on different carousel settings and it will work as many as a carousel post on your page.
Thank you, Deekshit!
