[Resolved] Slider using Custom Post Types with Custom field images
Hey! Well if you attempt to help me on this, thank you in advance. After spending literally 20 hours on this yesterday I have come to the end of my limited knowledge…I need help.
Goal: To create individual custom posts that each have a slideshow with thumbnails that pull the images from custom fields inside the custom post. For better understanding view the test site http://focalpoint.themedemo.net/portfolio/painted-hills-at-sunset#
Here is my problem. I am using a custom post type (Portfolio) and have created 10 custom fields for image inputs. I need to create a loop that starts at the field custom field and displays the ‘billboard’ image and its corresponding thumbnail. (By the way I have created the different image sizes in the functions file. ‘billboard’ and ‘thumb’) Since all 10 images are on the same custom post, I am unfamiliar with how to access each one, since I believe the_post_thumbnail() only applies to 1 image. I have attempted this through many different loops, assuming that a foreach would be my best solution, but to no avail. I will post my code in hopes that someone will be able to offer a solution.
Remember we are dealing with a custom post type/ 10 custom field images/ and thumbnails linking to larger billboard images. Whew this has driven me crazy!
