[resolved] nivo slider in a widget (3 posts)

    I've read you have to use a text widget to put the nivo slider in a widget, using the [nivo] shortcode. But what I still don't know is how to include the images to this slider, as it's no a page or a post with media associated. I've read the syntax includes some options, like post_type="attachment|post_type - Post type to display" but I don't know how to use them. For instance, what value should I have to give to post_type (post_type="I don't know which string goes here") to make the images I want available to the slider. Or If I have to use another option instead of post_type.
    Thanks.

    Hi again,
    I've read an example, post_parent=2256, but how do I know what is this number -in the example, the 2256- (I think it's an ID) of the post where I want to take the images from?

    Hi orboan, in the example you saw... probably
    http://www.oik-plugins.com/wordpress-plugins-from-oik-plugins/wordpress-plugins/oik-nivo-slider/oik-nivo-slider-themes/
    the images that are being displayed are those that are attached to post_id 2256.

    http://www.oik-plugins.com/?p=2256

    which is displayed as

    http://www.oik-plugins.com/2012/08/oik-nivo-slider-thumbnail-parameter-examples/

    You can see post ID in the address bar when you are editing it.
