Linking to pages from better-carousel

Recommended Posts


Hey Nick - Glad to have a reponsive carousel, but...


I know that neither the new or old carousel could link to pages, but I REALLY wanted it to work so I thought I'd try a little workaround I've used before. I added a plugin "Map Categories to Pages" - thinking it might just work - and it didn't.


Any simple fix to get your section to recognize Pages (not posts) that have been assigned a category?

Better Carousel should do this. Under the Post Type option, put the word any. This will pull all types including posts, and pages.

Something big is coming for DMS + photographers.

Thanks! Worked perfectly. I was confused a bit by the instructions that said you can't define both a post type and a category. It seemed to work.

      Hi Nick, I downloaded the DMS version of Better Carousel from my launchpad.  After I activated the NextGen plugin, the Better Carousel section says the NextGen gallery has to be installed and activated.  I created a few test galleries and images and put the proper ID's in the configuration, but it keeps telling me the plugin needs to be installed and activated.  Am I downloading the correct thing?  The  correct plugin?  The plugin I installed and activated is "NextGEN Gallery by Photocrati."

      hi, do you have any suggestions on how i would hook in a music playlist so that instead of streaming out text with an mp3 link, the player would stream an image with an mp3 link to better carousel?

      Hi Nick,

      want to share my customization work for wonderful Better-Carousel to integrate beautifully into iBlogPro5 plus adding two suggestions and wishes for the product to make the better even better

      First of all: unfortunately out of the box iBlogPro5 will overwrite Better-Carousel if you have an activated iAccordion-Section because of a jQuery-conflict! Using the Framework only - no problem.
      This was reported and solved in the following topic:
      Better-Carousel needs a proper working jQuery for its responsive design! For a shortcut I pasted the solution part of the threat in here:
      * * *
      »To be more specific:  jQuery UI 1.8.16 - from iAccordion seems to be causing a conflict with jQuery FlexSlider v2.1 in Better-Carousel.
      My solution was: erasing  jQuery UI 1.8.16 in pagelines-iblogpro5 > sections > iaccordion > jquery.ui.accordion.js
      And don't touch the parts: jQuery UI Widget 1.8.16 and jQuery UI Accordion 1.8.16 ! They seem to be responsible to have a working accordion widget in the sidebar.
      I'm not a pro and I was just playing around with that, but this gave me a working Accordion-Widget + the Better-Carousel working like default and untouched.
      Please note: Editing directly in the core will be overwritten with future updates - so whenever you install a iBlogPro5-Update - you might have to redo this work! «

      1. Suggestion - images should not be cut scrolling to the next set of images - two screenshots show what I mean:

      1st screenshot shows the layout and design of the first set of images in the carousel - perfectly fitting into the box.


      2nd screenshot shows the images being cut after scrolling to the next image sets. I would prefer they would neatly fill the space and not be cutted - behaving like in the pagelines carousel!

      2. Suggestion - It would be nice if you could add the text-blend-in effect on <hover> like in the pagelines carousel as an option. Would look great, I think.

      So here is my Customization-CSS from the screenshots above for anybody who wants to add Better Carousel to iBlogPro5 and play around with it - enjoy:
