    Hello,
    I'm having a problem with adding a custom field for external links on my Wp-Carousel. I want to have the option enter in a external link in the custom field if needed or to not and have the images link to the post(like it does right now). I am not a super programmer but more of a noob. does anyone know how to do this?

    here is the website. kallusive.afinekreation.com it's mid way down and has t-shirts on it.

    this plug-in is awesome!
    thank you in advance

    Here is your answer: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/open-external-links-in-a-new-window/.

    Then type: wp_carousel_link_url as your custom post along with a regular URL in your custom fields on your posts.

    When you add your images as "featured image" DON'T place a URL. Then tuda! New link in different window. If you want the link to display like normal, don't use the first plugin listed above.

    It's 11 months later, but I hope it helps someone.
