Categories & Carousel


Question

Posted · Report post

Hello,

I am trying to get pages created which show the following:

 

1) image carousel with images from a certain post category (ie: companies)

2) posts loop from a certain post category (ie: companies)

 

For example, I want pages for the following two categories that have this content:

a. Companies

     - carousel with thumbnails from post category=companies

     - post loop from post category=companies

b. Illustrators

     - carousel with thumbnails from post category=illustrators

     - post loop from post category= illustrators

 

I have configured the category page to include a carousel, but it appears that i can only show the thumbnails from one category type (or all of them). This means if I pick the category "companies", the carousel will show companies on all my other category pages. Blah.

I am stuck with the following:

a. Companies

- carousel with thumbnails from post category=companies

- post loop from post category=companies

b. Illustrators

- carousel with thumbnails from post category=illustrators

- post loop from post category= companies  (BAD)

 

 

Is there another way to accomplish this?

 

Thanks....

Lisa

Hi Lisa,

 

Do you mean that you can only select one category on the Carousel options on the Category Page?

from Pagelines->Page Options->Category Page, I have a drop down list for "Select category for Carousel". Here I can only choose one category or *all categories*.

The point is that if I want to show a carousel on the category page, I can't tell it to dynamically pick the posts of that category type :(.

Hi there, I see what you mean, this is the same for the featured slider unfortunately.

 

I'm not sure but Nick's, Better Carousel section might have this feature, http://www.pagelines.com/store/sections/better-carousel/ or maybe the Category boxes plugin could be an alternative http://www.pagelines.com/store/sections/better-carousel/
