Using 'oik custom image link URL' only on *certain* slides (4 posts)

    I'm wondering if there's a way to use the 'oik custom image link URL' field, but only on certain slides in the Nivo slider. So, for example, one slide of three would link to an external URL, and the other two wouldn't link anywhere.

    No answer on this but, if anyone wants to do this, here's how I did it hacking the plugin:

    I used the Nivo silder shortcode with link=y

    [nivo link=y]

    Then, to only create a link in the slideshow for slides with an associated URL, I hacked nivo.inc in plugins/oik-nivo-slider/ as follows:

    at line 337 I replaced these lines:

    $permalink = bw_get_image_link( $post->ID );
          alink( null, $permalink , $thumbnail, null );


    $permalink = bw_get_image_link( $post->ID );
          if (strlen($permalink) > 0 ) {
          	alink( null, $permalink , $thumbnail, null );  
          } else {
          	e( $thumbnail );

    To prevent the cursor appearing for slides with no URL, I commented out almost all of plugins/oik-nivo-slider/jquery.oik-nc-click.js:

    jQuery.fn.oikNCClick = function(){
        var slider = $(this);
        var nc = $('.nivo-caption', slider);
        //nc.hover( function() { $(this).addClass( 'nivo-caption-hovered' ); }
          //      , function() { $(this).removeClass( 'nivo-caption-hovered' ); } );
        //nc.css( 'cursor', 'pointer' );
        //nc.live('click', function(){
          //var visible = $('a.nivo-imageLink:visible', slider);
          //window.location.href = visible.attr('href');

    Then, to allow external links to open in a new window, I hacked bobbfunc.inc in plugins/oik as follows:

    at line 181, I replaced this line

    $link .= ">";


    // if URL contains domain.com, don't open in new window: must replace with your own site's domain
      if (stripos($url, "domain.com")) {
      	$link .= " >";
      } else { // it IS external...
      	$link .= " target='_blank'>";

    Hi, sorry I didn't see this sooner. I'm glad you found a solution to your problem.

    There are probably some other solutions that don't necessitate hacking the code but I don't have time to investigate them right now.
    When I do, I'll see whether or not I can incorporate your solutions into the base code.

    Hi again, regarding making links inactive. One option would be to set the oik custom image link URL to #

    But when the user clicks on it the page may scroll back to the top.
