Random Flickr images in carousel?

Recommended Posts


Hi How can i have random Flickr images in the carousel instead of the latest images? Seems that the Flickr Plugin you use dont support random. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/flickr-rss/faq/ Am i right? 1. Short term How can i implement a plugin that supports random? I.e hook into the framework from my child theme? Can you recommend a plugin that is suitable for my needs and provide the "hook in code". Quick check in code (section.php line 116=>) gave this result. Looks like a hook is possible.

'carousel_mode' => array(
							'version' => 'pro',
							'type' => 'select',
							'default'	=> 'posts',
							'selectvalues'=> array(
								'posts' 		=> array( 'name' => __( 'Post Thumbnails (posts)', 'pagelines' ) ),
								'flickr'		=> array( 'name' => __( 'Flickr', 'pagelines' ) ),
								'ngen_gallery' 	=> array( 'name' => __( 'NextGen Gallery', 'pagelines' ) ),
								'hook'			=> array( 'name' => __( 'Hook: "pagelines_carousel_list"', 'pagelines' ) )
							'title' 	=> __( 'Carousel Image/Link Mode (Carousel Page Template)', 'pagelines' ),
							'shortexp' 	=> __( 'Select the mode that the carousel should use for its thumbnails.', 'pagelines' ),
							'exp'		=> __( ' Post Thumbnails (default) - Uses links and thumbnails from posts 
Flickr - Uses thumbs from FlickrRSS plugin.
NextGen Gallery - Uses an image gallery from the NextGen Gallery Plugin', 'pagelines' )

2. Longer term Can you please implement this function in a future release.

Hi, 1. The Carousel uses FlickrRSS plug-in to display your images from flickr, this plug-in doesn't offer support for random. 2. I recommend you contact the developer(s) of the plug-in and request this feature. It may well be possible with a hook, therefore I recommend you contact one of the PageLines Pros and see if they can assist you. http://www.pagelines.com/pros/
