First time WP – Difficulty Creating Portfolio Site
I’ve taken the on the task of re-designing our company website and I’ve decided to move it out of an all Flash environment and use WP’s backend as a custom CMS. The fun part is that this is my first experience with WP.
I work for a video production company, so this site is essentially a portfolio. To explain in greater detail, I have a custom page template for the “Motion Design” content. I’ve successfully coded this “Page” to gather all “Posts” within the “motion_design” category and display only the thumbnails (from a custom field). When a thumbnail is clicked, it loads a custom “single” template that displays the video and it’s info.
What I can’t figure out how to add a next and previous button. For example, when the user clicks on “Motion Design” they see 9 thumbnails that correspond to videos (actually, videos embedded in posts with the category of “motion_deisgn”) There are more than 9 videos, and don’t want to use a scroll bar.
I guess what I’m looking for is the PHP to get next/previous posts of a certain category, but continue to only display these thumbnail images that are pulled from a custom field.
Thanks for your help, I apologize if this is very simple. I searched the forums, but couldn’t find what I needed as this is a very specific scenario.
