Carousel Images From Category.

Question

Posted · Report post

In Version 1.1.1 the changelog says this : - Category Select for Carousel, Controls on Post Pages I have 1.1.1 installed and can see the other options such as : - Page and Body Background Color Option But I cannot see where I can get the carousel to read images from a category, I only want to have images displayed and no pages associated with them. Is that possible ? Thanks Steve

I don't think this will work for what I want as I have other images in my posts that I don't want to show on the carousel. I have tried a few different options tonight with no luck. Is there a roadmap to have the carousel to load images directly from the media folder or from a dedicated category ?

Hi cmunns, I asked this question yesterday and wanted to get your feedback on it please. I think the carousel is a brilliant feature. My desire is to use it in a slightly different way than just having the thumbnail images that go to a post or a flicker page. I would like to use the carousel feature to link thumbnail images of videos that will either load from say YouTube or link the thumbnail to a page in my web site. so it can do something like you see on this page link (and I apologize for the link) http://templatic.com/demos/?theme=productz Is this possible and what do I need to change in the carousel code to make it behave that way? This would be a fantastic feature for the carousel to have by default. It would provide an enormous benefit to the platform pro layout. Thank you Peter

Bumping for you, so you don't get buried. Bump again so the developers can see you because this is one for them. Thanks, Bryan

Yes if you check carousel settings you'll see near the bottom you can put the category slug of the category you want to pull from. The category slug would be the name of the category used in the URL lower case with dashes used as spaces.

We could try, but the carousel is implementation of plugins. I responded to your other thread which has a link to an article which may be able to work it out with the NextGen Gallery.

If you just want various images then use the nextgen mode with the carousel.

What I want to do is have a carousel of all our technical partner logos, and as some are varying in size and shape the fixed thumbnail size does not work for me. Are you saying the changelog is incorrect and infact a category for carousel images is not possible at this point ?

No It would work if you have a post for each partner with their logo as the "features image" or thumb.
