vSlider Multi Image Slider for WordPress
[resolved] Automatically import larger featured images (5 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm trying to use vslider for its feature to automatically import images.
    I have selected the Grab Post Image: Featured in Image Source.

    Unfortunately, vslider uses a small-size featured image instead of larger ones.

    This is the image used:

    http://amazingvideoplanet.com/wp-content/plugins/vslider/timthumb.php?src=http://amazingvideoplanet.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/421123890_640-300x191.jpg&w=990&h=360&zc=1&q=100

    This is the image it is scaling from:

    http://amazingvideoplanet.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/421123890_640-300x191.jpg

    But this is the largest version image saved by:

    http://amazingvideoplanet.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/421123890_640.jpg

    The slider seems to be using the thumbnail-sized image URL and scaling it up, but I need it to get the thumbnail's ID and then get the full-sized image for that image ID.

    The featured images are created with another plugin: "video-thumbnails".

    Could you please advise how to get this effect (load the biggest picture)? Any hints/ help is much appreciated.

    Best Regards!
    Vlad

    I wanted to inform that we've launched vSlider v 5.X and suggest you to try the 5.0.1 version and in case you face any issues, you can post them on our forums forums.vibethemes.com or email us at vibethemes@gmail.com.

    And YEs, the 5.0.1 version picks the largest image.

    Hi, I installed the latest version from the website and it will not automatically import the photos from the posts.

    The previous version did this pretty well.

    Please advise.

    It will now automatically import..
    Use the slide generator instead.

    How can you generate slides?
    1. Select Image source -> Generate Images
    2. Set the Number of Slides/Images you want to show.
    3. Select the Post Type, it works with your custom post types as well.
    4. Select the Taxonomy
    5. Select Taxonomy term.
    For example: In posts, I have a category called "Abc"
    So If I want to create a slider which takes featured images from category ABC then My settings are
    Post Type: Post
    Taxonomy: Category
    Taxonomy Term : Abc
    6. Select popular post entries or recent post entries.
    7. Generate.

    As soon as you click generate it generates slides in the Slides panel at the bottom.

    You get images and caption heading and caption text pulled from the posts. You can then alter any of the slide settings and click save.

    Post saving you can Live preview your slider and use the shortcode wherever you want it.

    Hi Mr. Vibe,

    I have installed vslider v5.0.1

    I am not able to set the image source as you described above.

    I don't see options 6 and 7.
    6. Select popular post entries or recent post entries.
    7. Generate.

    See this link for a screenshot: http://www.thegadgetmasters.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/vslider5.png

    I would appreciate any help on this. WordPress v3.5.1

    Thanks
