This page exists just for testing purposes. Carousels are not currently supported by Tweeki out of the box. Patches with CSS fixes and the necessary code to allow the data-slider attribute in btn elements are warmly welcome.

This said, there is couple of workarounds, that you could use if you're really eager to get a carousel on you wiki:

  1. Use the standard Bootstrap-slider carousel without the controls
  2. Use the extension Widgets if you need a full functioning carousel

Additionally, you can also adapt the standard Bootstrap slider to a fading carousel. This will make your carousel less "flashy". You will have to skip the controls part of the carousel as well, though.

Standard carousel without controls

This is the more-or-less standard bootstrap carousel code, with the controls part removed. Then, only the images are adapted to wiki text:

<div id="carousel-example-generic" class="carousel slide" data-ride="carousel">
  <!-- Indicators -->
  <ol class="carousel-indicators">
    <li data-target="#carousel-example-generic" data-slide-to="0" class="active"></li>
    <li data-target="#carousel-example-generic" data-slide-to="1"></li>
    <li data-target="#carousel-example-generic" data-slide-to="2"></li>

  <!-- Wrapper for slides -->
  <div class="carousel-inner" role="listbox">
    <div class="item active">
      <div class="carousel-caption">
        <h3 style="color: red">Caption 1</h3>
    <div class="item">
      <div class="carousel-caption">
        <h3 style="color: red">Caption 2</h3>
    <div class="item">
      <div class="carousel-caption">
        <h3 style="color: red">Caption 3</h3>

  <!-- Controls removed -->

NB: Make sure to remove all the indents (spaces), or they will mess up the layout!

Example Standard Carousel - no controls

This is what the result of the code above will look like:

Using custom styling and template for Bootstrap carousel


Fading from one image to the next is not a standard option for a Bootstrap carousel. To implement fading you need to add custom styling to MediaWiki:Common.css or Mediawiki:Tweeki.css. You can find the CSS you need to implement fading here:

Because Bootstrap carousel requires quite some html-code it makes sense to use a template. You can find an example of a working template for a carousel on Template:Carousel - feel free to copy it to your site!

Using this template you can display a carousel with five slides in a more convenient way:

|Title1= Screenshot 1
|Caption1= Website of Tweeki 
|Title2= Screenshot 2
|Caption2= Website made with Tweeki
|Title3= Screenshot 3
|Caption3=Website of Tweeki
|Title4= Screenshot 4
|Caption4= Website made with Tweeki
|Title5= Screenshot 5
|Caption5=Website of Tweeki
