I am wondering where is the setting to limit the number of articles to pull from the categories under the "Article Method". Please add this to the module as it is such an important setting.

2) Even if the setting is set to "Stretch to Fit", there should be a way to set the max height.

3) Disable the Introtext.

4) Disable the Category header if Slide Title is enabled.

Hello,

1. Currently there is no way to limit the number or articles. You would have to publish to a category that you control the articles in.
2. This can be done in the module admin. You can set max height on it for mobile and desktop
3. I'm pretty sure you can disable the intro text by disabling the "slide text"
4. We actually just updated this a few days ago. Please grab a fresh download and reinstall.

Hello,

This is such a basic and crucial setting! Shape5 has to include this in the settings!

2. This can be done in the module admin. You can set max height on it for mobile and desktop
No, this cannot be done for "Stretch to Fit". And for "Actual Size", there's no height setting for mobile. Please include this in your module.

3. I'm pretty sure you can disable the intro text by disabling the "slide text"
No, disabling "slide text" removes ALL TEXT!

4. We actually just updated this a few days ago. Please grab a fresh download and reinstall.
Downloaded and updated. Nothing has changed!

I'm very disappointed at this low-level of support. How can such basic settings are not provided for!? Please improve your module so that your users are happy to stay with you!

1. Thanks for the suggestion to add this.

2. Unless you are using an old template that overrides the module this can be done via the module admin. We use these settings on our templates all the time. The settings to look for are:

Desktop (be sure to enter the height you want for this in the "height" setting) = "If Stretch To Fit Is Enabled (Disable Stretching - Optional). Enter the screen width to disable stretching, ex: 800px, 0px to disable. (Height setting will be used at this screen width)"

Mobile = "If Stretch To Fit Is Enabled (Mobile Height - Optional), ex: 300px."

3. Ok I found the issue here and updated the downloads to fix this. Please grab a fresh copy and reinstall.

4. It's definitely in there under the "article method" tab. I just double checked this to be sure on a fresh download.
