Flipper - displaying NextGen Pics - how?

Recommended Posts


Again I need some help....


As I learned carousel = flipper, right?


In the "old" framework days I could choose between posts, flickr, nextgen and hooks in the carousel section.


Question: How do I integrate a nextgen pic in the DMS Flipper? Is there an option to do so?


I found the following note in the flipper setup box: "Tip

Use a plugin to create custom post types for use with Flipper."


But I do not really understand which plugin should I use? How it works. And how I can integrate the nextgen gallery pics.


Is there anybody out there who knows how to do?

I appreciate very much your help. Thanks :)

Flipper isn't like the Carousel section from PageLines, its is a separate section and unfortunately you can't integrate Nextgen gallery images. The Flipper uses the Posts Feature thumbs.


Can't you just use the Nextgen gallery plugin, I thought it had a carousel shortcode ?

No issue for when I did a quick test of Nextgen gallery.

      We only want the images and title mouse-over, not link/click to the actual post the title is from.
      Any ideas anyone?

      I just installed and added the Flipper section to my home page and it makes my navigation/menu bar items disappear.
      They do show up again when scrolling down and everything seems normal on the other pages.

      Is there any way to hide the excerpt in Flipper, and the navigation arrows?

      How do I hide (or change) the category title in the Flipper section?
      Could there be a setting for this in the editor?

      Hi there! I'm trying to use flipper to show upcoming events on a site.
      I've installed and created some test events using The Events Calendar by Modern Tribe. I installed Flipper. And in Page Editor > Flipper > Edit, it recognized the Events post type.  It also recognized the event categories. So far, so good!
      However, on the front end, it shows the featured image (great!), the event title (great!), But... it shows the published date instead of the event date and no description excerpt.  See http://www.getreadyforwow.com/park/calendar-test
      When I try to use regular post types, it does not show and events or event categories, so I cannot use that as a backup option.
      Can you help me get the events to show correctly? I feel like I'm 75% there, but would like the date of the event (and not the post date) and the event description excerpt to show. I'm attaching a screenshot of what I am trying to accomplish. And you can see what is happening here (please ignore the test site styling!
      I truly appreciate your time and help!
