we would like to globally exclude categories from appearing in the carousel. we have about 30 categories and there are 8 that we need to exclude.
i found this on another thread and was wondering if it could be tailored to achieve the exclusion in carousels.

In your site, create a new category... for the sake of this example, we will call the category "carousel".
For each post you want to show, add the post to that category. If you have a large volume of posts, you can use an old but still functional plugin called "Batch Cat", available at WP.org.
Then, in the settings for the carousel, rather than exclude, you'd select the carousel category. Only the posts you have added to that category will display, essentially excluding those you do not wish included.
Yes, it's old fashioned thinking, but I'm and old guy.

Thanks for your advice, if none of the pagelines developers can advise on how to target the carousel we will look at your suggestion.
We have asked this in the chat service and been advised to ask it here. Hopefully a developer will be along soon.

Now let me point out, this is a bit of a hack First you have to set the max carousel images to something random, I chose 17.
So the filter checks if were on the frontpage, assume thats where you wanted the carousel, then it looks for numberposts being '17' Without this check it will break the main query for your posts.
