Carousel Images Linking To One Of My Webpages

Recommended Posts

Hi Pagelines,

I am trying to link the carousel images to different pages in my site and can't figure it out. I've looked throughout the forum and can't seem to find an exact answer. The closest one was from a girl who paid someone on fiver to help her. Here's what I tried so far:

Went to Gallery > Options > Effects > Set Javascript Thumbnail Effect to ‘None’

<div class="ngg-gallery-thumbnail" >

<a href="<?php echo $image->imageURL ?>"

title="<?php echo $image->description ?>"

<?php echo $image-<thumbcode ?> >

<img title="<?php echo $image->alttext ?>"

alt="<?php echo $image->alttext ?>" src="<?php echo $image->

thumbnailURL ?>"

<?php echo $image-<size ?> />

</a>

</div>

Replaced it with this code:

<div class="ngg-gallery-thumbnail" >

<a href="<?php echo $image->ngg_custom_fields["Link"]; ?>"

title="<?php echo $image->description ?>"

<?php echo $image->thumbcode ?> >

<img title="<?php echo $image->alttext ?>"

alt="<?php echo $image->alttext ?>" src="<?php echo $image->

thumbnailURL ?>"

<?php echo $image->size ?> /></a>

<a href="<?php echo $image->ngg_custom_fields["Link"]; ?>">

<?php echo $image->alttext ?>

</div>

Please help!

My best,

Stephanie

Hi there, if you got the above code from another post can you drop a link in for us, then we can take a look at exactly what the result was.

It looks like you're editing the code inside the nextgen plugin. Unfortunately we're unable to assist in editing third party plugins, which was probably why the previous user got someone independent to code the fix for them. Also any edits you make to the plugin code will be erased when you receive plugin updates.

If you're looking to make the images on the carousel link to pages on your site and you're not sure of the correct coding, you might need to look into getting the Pagelines Pro's to assist you with creating a custom code/section. You can find out more about them at www.pagelines.com/pros/


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Hi there, it's not something the section will allow out of the box unfortunately. A couple of clients have used a third party carousel like http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/multicarousel/ which allows the images to be linked to other pages/urls.

 

We've suggested this as an update to our carousel in the future, there are some third party carousel sections in the store, but it doesn't look like any of them include this feature as of yet.

      The Grams section of Platform 5, is lacking lots of important features, that DMS multigram was having, there is no space for another user ID asie the default user, that was one of the strongest point of multigrams, because the Hashtag option cannot capture everyone, multiple User ID is the default standard for Instagram,  Also there is no carousel or slide on this one, it means now that if you want to display 18 pictures in one page all will be visible at once thats not good engineering.
      My appeal to the Pagelines Team, guys please let the next update have all the DMS Multigrams features that is missing on Platform 5 Grams, that will bring it to its glory...

      Hi guys,
      I have noticed that all thumbnails on www.michaelkummer.com are scaled down in CSS or HTML, rather than on the backend by Jetpack's Photon. See https://db.tt/vNJCn7Gh and https://db.tt/3ZpkHM7G. 
      Any idea why Pins sets the image width and height to something much larger than what's shown on the screen? Is there any way to fix this so that Photon can do a better job in rescaling the images on the backend before they are delivered to the browser?
      Thanks
      Michael

      I'm using the boxes section on a local development site to play around with some options, and running into an issue.  
      Have the following settings for the boxes:
      Type: Images/SVC Media on Top Image Appearance: Standard/Default Image/Icon Width: 280px Image Opacity: 100% Each of my box images is 280x150 in size, but the result of the image on the box is a strange zoomed-in, cropped square (see attached).  I looked to adjust border properties via CSS, but couldn't find a fix.  What solutions are out there?

      I received our monthly Alexa report, and it pointed out that there were missing alt tags on EVERY page on our site. Upon closer inspection, it looks like the QuickSlider which is used for the scrolling banners at the top of the site doesn't bring in the alt tags. Recently, you made a change to the RevSlider to allow images to have "alt" tags. Can you do that for the QuickSlider too?
      Thanks.

      I just tried to figure out how to use Lax in combination with Post Thumbnails the following way: instead of showing the Featured Image on top of the content section I would like to have a Lax section above the content which loads for each post the featured image. To do so it seems there should be some kind of word press hook support necessary (not ready yet)? Or did I miss something?
