    Carousel for home page

    Can anyone offer some direction on finding a carousel that will work on our home page? We tried caroufredsel and liquidcarousel but were unsuccessful with either. We are hoping to add Brand logos for both customer confidence and SEO.
    Thanks,

    I can't, but I think?? that was mentioned in the V road map webinar as something that was going to be included in the new templating engine for 2014.

    Test your Carousel, your conversion rate may take a dive...

    Per some studies, adding a Carousel can reduce your conversion rate:

    So when making a major change like this, always do an A/B Test to see if it helps, or hurts your conversion rate. Never assume, always test.

    Thanks,

    I will start the A\B testing as soon as I find a jquery carousel that actually works. Know of one?

    Hmmm. Notre Dame website? That is hardly e-commerce. Also, their slider does not automatically advance to the next slide. No wonder why only the first slide was clicked. Plus, the content is barely relevant to the reason one would visit the site.

    I think sliders have value if implemented properly.

    As for carousels, I agree. Annoying.

    I'm curious what was wrong with carouFredsel? We use it just fine.

    No comments on conversion rate, that's not my area. I just make it work.

    A favorite quote of mine from Peter Drucker "Are you Doing the Right Work?" :-)
