JJ NextGen JQuery Carousel

Allows you to pick a gallery from the 'NextGen Gallery' plugin to use as a 'JQuery JCarousel'.

The 'JJ NextGen JQuery Carousel' allows you to create a 'JCarousel' (http://sorgalla.com/projects/jcarousel/) as a widget or as a shortcode. This plugin uses the 'NextGen Gallery' plugin for its images.


NextGen Gallery Integration:

  • This plugin uses the original width and height of the image uploaded so make sure the images are the correct dimensions when uploaded.
  • If a width and height are defined under the configuration all images will be resized to those dimensions (Highly recommended).
  • Alt & Title Text Field: Provide a full url here and the image will link to this. Only works if alt field starts with either of these; /, http, or ftp.
  • Description Field: Will be used as image alt text. If alt text is present but not a valid url alt text will be used instead for image alt text.

You can specify the following parameters:

NOTE: sc means shortcode:

  • Title: Title. Leave blank for no title. (sc: title="My Carousel")
  • Gallery: Leave blank to use all galleries or choose a gallery to use. (sc: gallery="galleryid")
  • Order: Order to display results in. You can choose; Random, Latest First, Oldest First, or NextGen Sortorder. Random will still work when a page is cached. (sc: order="random"|"asc"|"desc"|"sortorder")
  • Shuffle: If order is random and this is true will shuffle images with javascript. Useful if your are caching your pages. (sc: shuffle="true"|"false")
  • Max pictures: The maximum amount of pictures to use. (sc: max_pictures="6")
  • HTML id: HTML id to use. Defaults to 'jcarousel'. Needs to be different for multiple instances on same page. (sc: html_id="jcarousel")
  • Skin class: Class of skinning to use. Defaults to use the tango skin. (sc: skin_class="jcarousel-skin-tango")
  • Image width: Width of image. Defaults to 75. (sc: width="200")
  • Image height: Height of image. Defaults to 75. (sc: height="150")
  • Image gap: Gap between images. (sc: gap="5")
