Support » Plugin: Carbon Fields » Image Gallery Field?

  • Resolved Dalton Rooney


    Hey there HTMLBurger! (Great name, by the way!) I’ve been testing your plugin and it’s very nice. I really like the API for creating fields, it’s my new favorite thing.

    I saw you have a template for creating new field types, and in the documentation you mention an Image Gallery field. That’s the field I need and it’s not part of the core… have you by any chance created something like this already? I was going to dig in and give it a try myself but I’m not too familiar with Backbone so I know it’s going to be a good bit of work. Always makes sense to check in first!

    Cheers, and thanks again.

    Hey Dalton,

    Glad you like our plugin 🙂

    Concerning an Image Gallery field: nope, we don’t have one yet. But we have a quick alternative for it, and a hidden feature that will probably be helpful for you.

    For image galleries you can currently use the Complex field. Within a complex field, if you have an image field, you can use the WordPress Media modal to select multiple images. This will automatically create multiple Complex field entries with these images populated. It should make things easy for you.

    You can find information about how to initialize and use Complex fields in our documentation.

    Also, we’ve open a GitHub issue for a new Image Gallery field type – we’ll consider implementing one in the future. You can track its progress here in the GitHub repo of the plugin:

    Good luck with your project.

    Cheers 🙂

    Thanks for the info about Complex fields, that looks like it will work as a temporary solution. I will play around and see if I can implement a proper gallery field myself, but if not, I look forward to your solution. Thanks again for a very nice plugin, with great documentation as well.
