I need to pick a few brains here because I'm not sure the best way to approach this. I have a few images set up in custom fields, call them image1 and image2, and their values are pointing at the images absolute location on the server.
Here is what I want to do, I want to show these images held in the custom field as images in a slider - there will be multiple sliders like this on one page. The idea is that this page is a "Portfolio" page, and each post has its own sliding set of thumbnails.
I've tried a few plugins, but nothing that worked the way I wanted it to... suggestions?
Yah I tried Nivo's plugin... I'm wondering if going the non-plugin route would be a better option.... is there a way to call the images in php in query so I dont have the same slideshow on each post.. I ran into that issue today..
I guess my real problem is how to show each recent post's thumbnail slider on one single page, which is calling all the posts from a particular category
Well I tried setting up the slider in a <div> and then called the images via echoing the php custom field id - that worked great, but it applied itself to each one of the posts on the page, I'm sure its how I'm formating my query
