Carousel with Featured Images from a Category

Recommended Posts

I'm having a problem with the transition from PlatformPro to Pagelines 's carousel on my website markpenneygallery.com Setup: I use NextGen gallery so there's a single pic on each post and the featured image is set up from nextgen. Images are sorted into nextgen galleries by artist, but the categories are organized by medium. I have a separate category called carousel to be the main page highlights reel, and I have no problem with the artists nextgen gallery based carousels on their bio pages. Problem: thumbnails show as missing when I specify my corousel category in the carousel on static pages - but they do work well in the category pages(ie: oil paintings, watercolors etc). Thumbnail For Excerpts plug in, rebuilding the thumbnails etc have had no effect. suggestions?

http://www.markpenneygallery.com/carousel/ I've set up this category page to be the same (I don't want to have the carousel on my front page until it's fixed) ..... featured images are set in each post from nextgen gallery as well as a pinglepic is inserted in each post body.

Are you using nextgen options and category options at the same time? What if you try to use just one, like the category?

hmmm still having a problem... Each post has a pinglepic from nextgen in it and a featured image set ( also from a nextgen gallery.) The featured image shows up in categories (ie: paintings) but not in a carousel that supposed to show the category. I'm looking for a way to have the carousel use the featured image instead of the thumbnail.

The carousel won't pick up a thumbnail generated by NextGen. It will pick up from a NextGen gallery or from a manually entered thumbnail (in the post). The carousel will pickup the featured image (thumb) by default but you have to change the settings so that the image source is the post.
