    how to submit more than 15 elements on the carousal is there a setting to set the no of total item on the page

    • Phillip Johnson

      If you are using the PAJ Featured Image Owl Carousel as a shortcode then at the moment there is no way to increase the number of elements. I may be adding this feature in the future.
      However, if you are using the plugin as a SiteOrigin widget then you can increase the number of elements by entering a value in the ‘Posts Per Page’ setting of the widget.

    • Phillip Johnson

      I have been thinking of adding something like FancyBox to this plugin but it will not be for some months.
