Q: How many images must be in a carousel so that the user can see all of it? A: 1 In an interesting blog post about carousel interaction stats, Eric Runyon collected data on carousel interactions for various ND.edu web pages. What he found is that effectively users only interact with the first item in the carousel: A concise analysis of this data:

Depends on the goal. What are you trying to accomplish exactly? In the lobby the expectation (I assume) is that your employees breeze by while visitors grab a seat and wait for their appointments. If so, then there are a couple of questions to ask: Do visitors already know about your company/organization? If not, what information do you want to relay that ...

I don't think most websites are trending away from accordions towards carousels. Sites are trending away from carousels, and they are also trending away from accordions (if I were to speculate, perhaps at a slower rate). Disadvantages You asked specifically for potential disadvantages of using accordions instead of carousels, so: If you need to present ...

Show him this website: http://shouldiuseacarousel.com/ There are a couple of reasons why he shouldn´t do that. 1% clicked a feature. Of those, 89% were the first position. 1% of clicks for the most significant object on the home page? nd.edu stats by @erunyon “We have tested rotating offers many times and have found it to be a poor way of presenting home ...

The only advantage of a slider over next/previous navigation is the possibility to jump (seemingly) freely to any index. In reality this would hardly work, as the user cannot distinguish the individual index locations and needs to hunt for the right position, even if they remember the general direction. Thus, I'd classify the slider the same as indexable ...

Assuming the number is greater than what you can show at a given time i would favor infinite or a looping pattern. However I would make sure to give them some contextual clue of the state of the system. Let them know that they are going to loop back around to the begining. I dislike carousels where I think haven't I seen that before and realized it was ...

I guess you might be interested in an existing implementation of carousels for questions. Just hover the animated showcase of how Foursquare has already implemented the same. This looks good. They have a position indicator telling you the number of remaining panes. On answering, control moves to the next question too. Overall, it is a different way but does ...

User need to know how many box he has. You can implement something as infinite but with the number of box displayed under the carousel pictures. (or somewhere else) The infinite approach will stay disruptive and if you have a certain amount of box, display them like they are : limited.

A carousel is an animated content. Therefore, you have to be aware that it will bother the readability of the other informations on the page. That being said, using a carousel, there is no straight answer to your questions. The reading time depends of the content complexity. A quite good pattern consists into pausing the animation on mouse over (with a ...

Go with a list. This is a job listing page and the slider will infuriate people as they'll want to scan information quickly to pick out the job titles that suit them. A compromise might be to have a featured jobs slider with 3 or so featured jobs at the top of the page? That might satisfy your colleague but mean that the bulk of the information is easily ...

Your photo galleries look very nice ... Regarding your question, I would simply employ standard controls that you find on a lot of other image sliders such as pause/play buttons with next/previous buttons. No need to re-invent the wheel, image sliders are pretty common these days and most people are used to seeing them. I would just make sure to design ...

The best solution here is to put control in the hands of the user. Give them buttons to slide from left to right and discover the images, in either direction, at their own pace. Simplify the interface with two large, clear, clickable (desktop), tappable (touch screen), and keyboard navigable (for accessibility) action buttons that load either the next or ...

"Carousels exist to keep people from beating the $*&# out of each other in meetings." -- Brad Frost Problem: The home page isn't big enough to show all the stuff for sale. Solution: Recommend the top selling item with easy access to the full list.

Having 3 sliders is not a bad idea here. Having a single big slider is! Whenever someone comes to your website to purchase anything, he/she would have a product in mind to buy, the three distinct sliders will nicely categorize items. So when, I for example am visiting your website to find discounted deals for t-shirts on your website a single carousel will ...
