FAQ

What features does this carousel have?

Move forward/backwards buttons.

Skip to specific slide buttons.

Multiple carousels can be used per page.

How do I make a carousel with manually defined slides?

Each slide is defined with three parameters: img, link and title. Each parameter has a follow number preceded by a _ to define which slide number it is, beginning at 0.

For example a carousel with two slides:

[simple_carousel img_0=“First slide image url” link_0=“First slide link url” title_0=“Title (alternative image tag) for first slide image” img_1=“Second slide image url” link_0=“Second slide link url” title_1=“Second slide text”]

How do I make a carousel to display posts from a category?

[simple_carousel type=“category” category_name=“”]

Accepts parameters that the function get_posts uses (https://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/get_posts) to further refine which posts are displayed.

What other parameters does this shortcode accept?

class: adds the value to the div.carousel class tag for CSS styling, ex: “float-left”
width: width of the carousel, usually defined in px, ex: “960px”, default: “100%”
