Twitter Bootstrap – Carousel Only CSS

Hey everyone,

I ran into a bit of an issue today with my stylesheet conflicting with Bootstrap. After a bit of tinkering I realised that all I really needed from bootstrap were the Carousel styles. I’ve taken everything else out and included everything that’s left below:

.carousel {
  position: relative;
}
.carousel-inner {
  position: relative;
  overflow: hidden;
  width: 100%;
}
.carousel-inner > .item {
  display: none;
  position: relative;
  -webkit-transition: 0.6s ease-in-out left;
  transition: 0.6s ease-in-out left;
}
.carousel-inner > .item > img,
.carousel-inner > .item > a > img {
  line-height: 1;
}
.carousel-inner > .active,
.carousel-inner > .next,
.carousel-inner > .prev {
  display: block;
}
.carousel-inner > .active {
  left: 0;
}
.carousel-inner > .next,
.carousel-inner > .prev {
  position: absolute;
  top: 0;
  width: 100%;
}
.carousel-inner > .next {
  left: 100%;
}
.carousel-inner > .prev {
  left: -100%;
}
.carousel-inner > .next.left,
.carousel-inner > .prev.right {
  left: 0;
}
.carousel-inner > .active.left {
  left: -100%;
}
.carousel-inner > .active.right {
  left: 100%;
}
.carousel-control {
  position: absolute;
  top: 0;
  left: 0;
  bottom: 0;
  width: 15%;
  opacity: .5;
  filter: alpha(opacity=50);
  font-size: 20px;
  color: #fff;
  text-align: center;
  text-shadow: 0 1px 2px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.6);
}
.carousel-control.left {
  background-image: -webkit-linear-gradient(left, color-stop(rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.5) 0), color-stop(rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.0001) 100%));
  background-image: linear-gradient(to right, rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.5) 0, rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.0001) 100%);
  background-repeat: repeat-x;
  filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr='#80000000', endColorstr='#00000000', GradientType=1);
}
.carousel-control.right {

  right: 0;
  background-image: -webkit-linear-gradient(left, color-stop(rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.0001) 0), color-stop(rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.5) 100%));

  background-repeat: repeat-x;

    Hi

    I have a problem in asp.net mvc 5. I’m trying to use bootstrap Full Sider carousel, but when I use the inline css — — it can not find the image. I have tried the same in a HTML page and that Works just fine. Is it the razor-engine or what ?

      Hey Freddy,

      It’s a bit hard to tell without more info but I’m guessing your image paths just don’t match the ones in the css? If you look in the network tab of chrome are there missing images? Fiddler might also be worth grabbing:

      Cheers,
      Chris

        Hi Cris
        Thanks for your time.

        Here is the story:
        I downloaded and installed Bootstrap Background Image Slider.
        This is a html page a ofcourse the slider worked perfect.
        I then changed the background image url to local images – still worked perfect.
        So there i nothing wrong with the Slider.

        Then I copyed the code into a asp.net mvc 5 project.
        I integrated the “full-slider.css” into the bundleConfig, and copyed the html code into a
        view – every thing looked OK – but it dont Work.
        Here is the code
        ====================================

        etc
        .etc.
        </div
        ====================================================

        as you can se I put the images inside same Folder as the css.

        I can make the slider run by doing this:

        ====================================

        @* *@

        ========================================
        but this way i can’t take advantage of the class=”fill” and it come out like a normal slider not a background slider.

        I have googled for many days and found that many people have the same problem – but no solutions

        all my best regards and thank you
        Freddy

    Hi Freddy,
    Transitions are not working for me at all.
    I see non active carousels are not sliding out to the left, but they became display none.
    Should it work differently?
    Thanks,
    Adam

    This is great! However, my glyphicons (left and right arrows/chevrons) aren’t showing up. Instead, the carousel has “Prev” and “Next” floating in the top of the image. Do you have any thoughts on this? Thanks!
