I tried to add one of above URLs into slideshow in my local site but it still works properly:


[desc img="01.jpg" url="http://itsybitsy.ie/products/cloth-nappies.html?alias=Cloth%20Nappy"]<div class="desc-slide"><span class="text-title">Sunny New Arrivals</span><span class="text-description">See what is in full swing for spring</span></div>[/desc]

Do you try to flush magento cache after making change?

I have realized the problem. The url works when I click on the slideshow image and not when I click on the title text or description. The cursor changes when I hover above the text and does not when I hover the mouse above the images. Its a bit misleading for my customers. Can you please suggest a fix to make the side tabs with the titles to point to the URLs

If you want to have ‘pointer’ cursor when hovering image, you can open file: /skin/frontend/default/jm_kidsland/joomlart/jmslideshow/css/jm.slideshow.css

At approx line 29:


.jm-slide-item {
    cursor: pointer;  <<< add this line
    display: block;
    float: left;
    margin: 0;
    overflow: hidden;
    position: relative;

Then flush magento cache.

You can fix it by go to your admin >> Joomlart >> JM SlideShow and change option of "Event to trigher a thumbnail" from "On Click" to "On Mouse Enter", like this: http://prntscr.com/4j6cyl

About text color, you can change it by open file ..\skin\frontend\default\jm_kidland\joomlart\jmsli deshow\css\jm.slideshow.css, at line 44, after this rule:


.jm-slide-thumbs-wrap {
  bottom: 40px;
  height: 410px !important;
  position: absolute;
  right: -300px !important;
  z-index: 999;

Add this rule:


.jm-slide-thumbs-wrap a {
	color: #fff;
	text-decoration: none;

Hope this helps.
