Is there a way to change views_slide show "image 1 of 3" to be 3 circles, where the active one is black and the rest are grey? I tried doing that in CSS but does not look like its the right approach for doing this.
@Scorchio Thanks for that. I was successfully able to convert the layout from '1 of xx' to '1 2 3 4 5 6 x' by overriding views-slideshow-slide-counter.tpl.php and modifying the views_slideshow.js. My changes are below.
[I don't know which version you're using - I'm checking a version of Views Slideshow which is tagged 7.x-3.x right now in the project repo. It shold be similar for earlier versions.]
I'm sorry for not being able to give a complete recipe, but here are my tips anyway.
