Ajax Post Carousel

Widget that displays posts as a carousel, using jQuery. It preloads a few posts and Ajax is used to load more posts as the carousel advances.

With Ajax Post Carousel you can display posts as a carousel using jQuery for animations. The widget only preloads a few posts and Ajax is used to load more posts as the carousel advances (this is very useful when you have hundreds of posts).

The featured thumbnail of each post is used for the carousel, so at least WordPress 2.9 is required. The widget can be totally customized using CSS. Only the basic styles are defined so the carousel works properly.


  • Posts can be selected from a category, a custom taxonomy or a post type.
  • Configurable number of posts shown in the carousel and number of preloaded posts (visible posts + posts loaded in the background)
  • Posts can be loaded in random order or using the default order (From most recent to oldest)
  • Carousel can be an endless loop
  • Title and excerpt can be shown. Thumbnail is always shown.
  • Can be used as a widget, a shortcode or a php function.
