P2P Slides

Description

Note: This plugin requires Posts 2 Posts

Allows you to associate a custom post type (“slides”) with any of your other post
types (defaults to “pages”). This is useful for theme developers of those that
want to add custom sliders around your theme.

This plugin does not provide you out of the box front end functionality. If you’re
looking for a drop in and play slider, this isn’t it.

Installation

First, install and active Posts 2 Posts.

Then, use the WordPress installer to install this plugin or …

  1. Click the big orrange button to download the plugin
  2. Unzip the plugin files
  3. Upload the p2p-slides folder to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  4. Activate the plugin in the admin area

After installing, you should see a new meta box on your edit screen for pages.

If you wish to modify what post types get associated with slides, simply hook
into after_setup_theme and add theme support for p2p-slides.

<?php
add_action('after_setup_theme', 'my_special_setup');
function my_special_setup()
{
    // this is the same as just having the plugin installed
    add_theme_support('p2p-slides');

    add_theme_support('p2p-slides', array('a-post-type', 'another-post-type'));
}

To use the slides, you’ll need to check the slides property of each $post.

<?php
// start the loop as normal
while(have_posts()): the_post();
?>

    <?php if($post->slides): ?>
        We have slides! Loop through them.
        <?php foreach($post->slides as $slide): ?>
            Do stuff with $slide here, it's just a post object
        <?php endforeach; ?>
    <?php endif; ?>

<?php endwhile; ?>

You can find a more complete example, in the form of a page template for twentyeleven in the P2P Slides’ inc directory.
