Support » Plugin: Media Library Assistant » Image Slider based on a category

  • Right now I’m displaying all the images from a category on a page using this code:

    [mla_gallery attachment_category=’spring13′]

    What I’d like to be able to do is to have an image slider that would be able to load only the images from the media library that I’ve categorized as “spring13”. Does anyone have ideas for a method or combination of plugins that that would allow this?

    Thanks for using the plugin and for your question.

    If you can give me an example of a WordPress page using an “image slider” and some information about an image slider you’re using I can do some research. Thanks for any additional information you can give me.

    Something like Photonic

    and its Native Gallery Support

    Enhanced Native Galleries
    Your existing gallery insertions are left intact. However you can add a style parameter to it for special effects. The permitted values for style are:

    strip-below: Displays a thumbnail strip with a running slideshow above.
    strip-above: Displays a thumbnail strip with a running slideshow below.
    no-strip: Displays running slideshow with no thumbnails.
    launch: Doesn’t display a running slideshow, but shows all thumbnails. On clicking a thumbnail a popup slideshow is shown.

    The catch is it only works with the [gallery] shortcode so my

    [mla_gallery attachment_category=’spring13′]

    just gets ignored.

    Totally be keen to see & use what dgreene423 is mentioning! Its an amazing plugin David and thank you for all the time you put into this support forum.

    I’ve had a look at Photonic and it looks like integrating it with [mla_gallery] should be possible. I have posted a thread in the author’s support forum (Photonic Extension for [mla_gallery] shortcode in Media Library Assistant) and am awaiting a response.



    Thanks for investigating, David.

    I got a quick and complete response to my query and I’ve done the work required to support the Photonic plugin in [mla_gallery]. I plan to add this to my next release unless I find some problem as I do more testing.

    Thanks again for suggesting this enhancement!

    I have just released version 1.10, which includes support for the Photonics plugin. Have a look at the Documentation tab on the Settings page for further details on how to use it with [mla_gallery].

    Let me know if you have any issues with using Photonics. Thanks again for your suggestion and for your patience.
