This is the easiest way to add carousels to your site. Just drag the "Ajax Post Carousel" widget to an available area and configure all settings.
You can use it to include carousels in your posts or pages. Add [apc-carousel] to use the default values.
All the options in the widget can also be used with the shortcode:
[apc-carousel visible_posts=2 init_posts=8 show_title=1 show_excerpt=1 my-taxonomy=my-taxonomy-term]
The PHP function can be used in a theme template. The options and defaults are the same as in the Shortcode:
Ajax_Post_Carousel::show_carousel($random=0, $visible_posts=3, $init_posts=9, $show_title=0, $show_excerpt=0, $loop=0, $post_type='post', $category='all', $tax_filter='')
$tax_filter uses this format: 'my-tax-1=my-term-1&my-tax-2=my-term-2'
Example that returns the same output as the Shortcode example:
There are to ways to style the carousels using your own css.
