possible to pull categories from carousel?

Recommended Posts

senlin

The carousel on iBlogPro uses the_post_thumb or images in Next Gen or images from Flickr. I wonder if it would be possible to make the carousel work more like on the apple website (http://www.apple.com/mac/) where it shows the pictures of a certain category only? Ideally it would be possible to choose from 5 different categories and then it shows up to 8 images from that category. I think it should work with the_post_thumb and some additional coding. Anyone has any experience with that? Thanks

hmmm...Haven't heard of anyone attempting this. It seems like filtering by category would be easy enough, but are you also trying to create the sliding menu beneath it? That would be pretty tricky

the sliding menu beneath is sth I do with jQuery, already have sth running on localhost following a tutorial and then some advice of commenters of "jQuery for designers - Slider Gallery" (http://jqueryfordesigners.com/slider-gallery/) my main problem will be to integrate that slider into "your" carousel thingy that probably won't work, so then I go to plan B, which will be only using your CSS and for the rest develop a website according to the "normal" WordPress structure...

not sure what the reqs would be to get it to work, but you can take a look at the template_carousel.php file and see how it works.
