Creates a dynamic gallery of images for latest or featured content posts, categories, pages and Custom Post Type posts.
Only basic information is shown here. Comprehensive information on installing, configuring and using the plugin can be found at http://www.studiograsshopper.ch/dynamic-content-gallery/Instructions for use
Using the plugin
To display the dynamic gallery in your theme, add this code to your theme file wherever you want to display the gallery:
<?php dynamic_content_gallery(); ?>
Note: Do not use in the Loop.
Alternatively, add it as a Widget via Dashboard>Appearance>Widgets.
Assigning Images to Posts
Either select Auto in the Image Management options to automatically pull in Image Attachments from relevant Posts/Pages, or enter your image URL in the Write Post/Page screen DCG Metabox Image URL field. (The exact form of the image URL depends on whether your DCG Image File Management Settings are set to FULL or PARTIAL URL).
Slide Pane text can be configured in three ways - Manual, Auto or None
Manual: * Enter a Slide Pane Description in the Write Post/Page screen DCG Metabox. For example: Here's our latest news!
Auto: * Select Auto option to automatically create custom Post/Page excerpts from your Post/Page content.
None: * Select None if you don't want to display a Slide Pane Description. (Post/Page title will still display with this option)
Note for WP Multisite users: Use the Media Uploader (accessed via the Add Media button in Dashboard > Posts > Edit) to upload your images and to find the full URL to be used in the Write Post/Page screen DCG Metabox Image URL field. See the Settings page for further information on how to do this. This tip is good for WordPress too - especially if using the FULL URL option in your Image file management Settings. An even better tip for Multisite setups is to use the Auto Image Management option to automatically pull in post attachments.
