CSS Framework Basics Prototyping with Bootstrap Building a Carousel

my indicators dont move so smoothly

Hello,

If you run the code below and you press the left indicator, you will see the slide move in an awkward manner; in fact parts of the slide will not show for a few seconds. Would you happen to know how I can make this slide move smootly when I press the indicators.

Please answer if you are familiar with this course, and you have run and solved this code.

Cheers

Hi,

Could you please ZIP up your entire code base and host it somewhere as it's not possible just to test your HTML.

Hey Chris,

hmm... how do I do that? I can zip it and send it via hotmail, butI cant imagine how to post a zipped folder on this platform.

Cheers!
