Sample code generated by the plugin:
wp_posts_carousel template=”compact.css” post_types=”post,page” all_items=”10″ show_only=”id” exclude=”” posts=”” ordering=”asc” categories=”” relation=”and” tags=”” show_title=”true” show_created_date=”true” show_description=”false” allow_shortcodes=”false” show_category=”true” show_tags=”false” show_more_button=”true” show_featured_image=”true” image_source=”thumbnail” image_height=”100″ image_width=”100″ items_to_show_mobiles=”1″ items_to_show_tablets=”2″ items_to_show=”4″ slide_by=”1″ margin=”5″ loop=”true” stop_on_hover=”true” auto_play=”true” auto_play_timeout=”1200″ auto_play_speed=”800″ nav=”true” nav_speed=”800″ dots=”true” dots_speed=”800″ lazy_load=”false” mouse_drag=”true” mouse_wheel=”true” touch_drag=”true” easing=”linear” auto_height=”true” custom_breakpoints=””
This code should be placed between square brackets [].


The plugin also offers a widget that allows you to quickly create new carousels and post them in certain places on your site.

  • Mediadesign Biolution

    I see that you added post exclusion in the plugin. Great feature! But now I have a problem that I cant display specific category it only works for all items… I am adding category id number in Category IDs field, I also tried in the Tag names field and it does not work… Am I doing something wrong?

    • http://www.teastudio.pl/ teastudio

      It should works without any problems, could you send me your shortcode or widget options and an ftp access to plugin directory?

      • Mediadesign Biolution

        I had to erase the code and to use another plugin, but it still seems like yours will be better if starts working. Could you write an example for selecting a few portfolio categories and excluding one portfolio post? That is exactly how I need it to work. Thank you in advance.

    Hello, I use Srizon Facebook Albums (plugin to embedd facebook albums to my page) and those photos dont show up on your carousel. Is there any fix for this? I really love how your plugin looks and feels but can you please help me fix this?

    Please tell me how to set the ordering correct, i need the newest post to be on the first slide. Already set newest but not working, also try the descending / ascending order but not working either. But your plugin is great.
