Taxonomy Images
Displaying on the home page or in Widgets (4 posts)

    Hello your plug-in looks promising, good job. I'm considering using it for a project that requires a taxonomy term based navigation that supports images be part of the sidebar on most pages as well as a slider of taxonomy terms on the home page. I can handle marking it up, what I was hoping to find was the image handling piece. Is your plugin only able to display images on a category.php or archive.php page or can it be made to work on a non-archive type of page like page.php? If so perhaps I have missed it in your documentation? could you point me in the right direction?

    There is a filter built-in that funtions very closely to get_terms(). I would suggest starting there.

    This is what I wound up using. It works for what I needed. Hopefully it helps someone else. I wound up adding a jquery cycle function to these to make a nice little Term Slider.

    `$terms = apply_filters( 'taxonomy-images-get-terms', '', array('taxonomy'=>'product_categories') );

    if ( ! empty( $terms ) ) {
    echo '<div id="slider-wrap"><div id="slider-r">';
    foreach( (array) $terms as $term ) {
    echo '<div class="product_category_item"><div class="imageunder">taxonomy ) ) . '">' . wp_get_attachment_image( $term->image_id, 'taxonomy-image' ) . '</div><div class="textover">taxonomy ) ) . '"><h1>'.$term->name.'</h1><p>' . $term->description . '</p></div></div>';
    echo '</div><div class="slider-nav"><ul class="nav-thumbs">';
    foreach( (array) $terms as $term ) {
    echo '<li class="thumb-item">' . wp_get_attachment_image( $term->image_id, 'taxonomy-thumb' ) . '';
    echo '';
    echo '</div></div>';

    I am also looking for a way to utilize the plugin outside the loop (in my case to call a single category image in a widget).

    Could you go into a little more detail on the filter suggested above (similar to get_terms)? I'm trying to follow along with the logic, but my php is still in learning curve mode.

    Many thanks!
