|You specifically mention Announcments list but do have a property to change that. I was just wondering if it has to be a specific content type or list template ID or can it really be pointed to just about anything?|
you actually can point the web part to any type of list (eg. the list does not need to be based on the “Announcements” list template).
|Hi, What is the text behind the options. basically i would like to understand how to display a picture with the news article.|
if the web part is pointed at a Sharepoint Picture Library then it displays the corresponding picture. If it points to a list, it then by default displays the first attached picture. You also can use a "Hyperlink or Picture" column to define the pictures and then enter the name of your column into the web part's "Options" setting:
Is there a way to change the spacing between the columns?
yes, please add the below to the web part’s „Options“ setting to override the default 14px spacing:
(change the value as needed).
|Is it possible to use this with a blog? I'm looking for a better way to display blog articles on our Intranet homepage. |
yes, you can point the News Carousel web part to a blog posts list.
Please enter then (relative) URL of your blog site into the “Site Name” setting (as eg. “/OurBlog”) and then enter “Posts” into the “List Name” setting.

|Hi, I have inserted this webpart into my homepage, SP2013, and points to a list etc. But when I click on the image or Title (link) or (read more) link, nothing happens. Am I missing something here? I expected it to show the display page for the announcement. Thanks.|
we have now added support for publishing pages on Sharepoint 2013 (which allows to open the links in a Sharepoint dialog window).
Please re-download the web part and then update the web part solution.
|It has picture height, but what about width? Some of them are wider and it's chopping them off, didn't know if they could shrink to show the whole image? |
the web part fits the image into the available space (as defined by the "Column Width" and Image Height" settings) and preserving the image aspect ratio.
Thus if an image is much wider than tall (as eg. a typical banner image), it will be cropped horizontally.

|Can you render HTML within the items? I'd like links within the content to work, and lists.|
Also wondering how you get the individual colours per item, is there a colour column option?
you can assign individual background colors by adding a new column named “Color” to your Sharepoint list.
The body text preserves the HTML formatting if the “Max. nbr. of words displayed” setting is set to “0” (eg. the text is not being truncated).

|Do you know if this webpart can be used with SharePoint Online/O365?|
there is currently no Office365 version, but it is scheduled for Q4 2017.
|Is the available specifically for O365/SPO, or would the 2016 version suffice. If so, what is the licensing fee for an SPO installation; equivalent to one server (since client has no control / options over those)?|
please note that currently there is no Office365/Sharepoint Online version of the „News Carousel“ web part.
We will be releasing an Office365 version later this year.
is there a way to change "(read more)" to German (mehr...)?
At the point "Max. nbr. of words displayed" i have 15.
Can you help at this point?
please add the below to the webpart's "Options" setting:

|Can you concatenate fields like the Title field? It's a member of the month and I wanted to show their name and what month they were nominated for. |
you would need to add a new column of type “Calculated” to your list and the enter the formula to concatenate the fields.
You then would enter the name of your new column into the web part’s “Title Field Name” setting.
|Is it possible to configure this web part to have 2 different layouts, so that within a single carousel you could have some items in one layout (e.g. one with a horizontal image) and some items in a different layout (e.g. one with a vertical image)?|
this is currently not possible (eg. all the items use the same layout).
