ENHANCE: BAS Carousel Not Displaying Custom Post Types

Recommended Posts

jcaynes

Hi Nick, Thanks so much for this plugin.  I'm starting to dig in and have tried to add carousels in two sites, one using tags for jigoshop products and another using categories for a wiki plugin.  I'm not getting any errors, but there are no images, so can only assume I'm doing something wrong.  Featured images are set for all.

Gardening Website: http://organically.us/wiki/predators/

I have shortcode inserted to show subwikis for predatory insects (category), but no images display.  Plugin for Wiki is inscub_wiki, named my wiki posts "Wikis". Post type has been named "inscub_wiki" and also tried "wiki" in the shortcode. 

Shortcode added is: [ba-postcarousel speed="400" slideshow="false" delay="5000" number="20" category="predators" post-type="wiki" orderby="ID" order="ASC" showtitle="true" showimg="true" showexcerpt="false" thumbsize="thumbnail" itemwidth="250"]

Jewelry Website:  http://theartisanjewelry.com/product/rose-quartz-pink-pearls-silver/

I have shortcode to show other products of the same gemstones (tags), but no images display.  The plugin is jigoshop, and the post types should just be "product".   

Shortcode added is: [ba-postcarousel speed="400" slideshow="false" delay="5000" number="5" tag="rose-quartz" post-type="product" orderby="ID" order="ASC" showtitle="true" showimg="true" showexcerpt="false" thumbsize="medium" itemwidth="400"]

The code seems to be working, but the custom post types are not getting hooked in, I think.  Maybe I missed a box or something?  I'll keep trying, but hoping there is something you can clue me in on.

Also, I was looking at your better carousel plugin and wanted to know how that is different or better than the BAS plugin, because I'm really trying to insert a carousel in the posts right now.

Thanks so much!

Jan

Lots of views, no answers. I still haven't found any way to get the custom post types hooked in.  Any info on that?  Was BASS not built for custom post types?

Hmm for some reason I never saw this topic, hence no answer.

 

That shortcode isn't being used properly, which is why it's no working. For one, there are no categories in custom post types, they are called terms. Second, there currently isn't a "term" attribute for that shortcode, or the Better Carousel. What these products DO do, is show posts from a custom post type.

 

Once I get back into town next week I can certainly add these features in as an update.


Something big is coming for DMS + photographers.

Hi Nick -

 

The update was completed today for DMS compatibility.  Was anything included for the carousel compatibility?

 

Thanks!

Hey!

To be honest I was so concerned with getting it working in both V2 and DMS and completely forgot about adding a terms attribute for the carousel. I'll get this added on Monday for you.

      For the site https://marshallsirishpub.com I am running
      Wordpress 4.9.4
      Pagelines base theme 1.0.2
      Pagelines Framework 2.5.0
      Specific page not working properly is https://marshallsirishpub.com/photo-gallery/
      I am using NextGen gallery which is activated and showing the pictures in the gallery.  Page was edited to add the carousel and points to the NextGen gallery.  Meta settings and page were both saved.
      When I'm logged into Wordpress I see the following error at the top of the page:
       Carousel 
      THE PLUGIN FOR THE SELECTED CAROUSEL MODE NEEDS TO BE ACTIVATED (FLICKRRSS OR NEXTGEN GALLERY). SETUP PLUGIN →
      The site was hacked last month and it seems the hacker changed some things on the site, but I can't figure out what was changed to make the Carousel not show on the page.
      Thanks.

      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...

      I am using Jigoshop on a website that also uses PL5 and am running into an issue where the store pages do not allow me to use the PL5 editor. Is anyone else having this problem or know if a solution? 
      When I open the Chrome console I see the following error:
      site.js?ver=b199df:5 Uncaught ReferenceError: PLData is not defined
          at Object.setMasterModel (site.js?ver=b199df:5)
          at Object.init (site.js?ver=b199df:5)
          at HTMLDocument.<anonymous> (site.js?ver=b199df:5)
          at i (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
          at Object.fireWith [as resolveWith] (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
          at Function.ready (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
          at HTMLDocument.K (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
       
      The problem can be seen here: http://fingerlakesdistilling.com/shop/ where the sidebar, footer, and header do not show up. Any thoughts?
      Thanks so much!

      I'm building a website in a dev environment at http://162.144.182.17/~uescocra.
      I want to import a bunch of products, and then have the products have a different template than the default template. 
      I also want to change the default template for blog posts.
      Before I go making changes, can I do this where the post type of "products" has its own global template, and the same with blog posts?
      For instance, in a product I might want to have a widget for categories, similar products, etc., and in the blog I may want list of the latest posts, blog categories, link to an email sign-up landing page, etc.
      Thanks.

      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
