(NOTE: You can access all the shortcodes via the shortcodes icon on your visual editor. See this document if you need more information.)

The Image Carousel shortcode will allow you to put a number of images into a rotating carousel. You can either have the images pop up in a lightbox when clicked, or you can link the images to other pages or other sites.

Here's an example of a carousel.

 

Here's a partial look at the settings page.

Here is an example shortcode:

 

These are the properties:

  • picture_size = fixed, auto; with "auto" the image size will adjust, with "fixed" it will keep a fixed size
  • lightbox = yes, no; pop the image up in a lightbox when clicked - this can only be used if you are not linking the image to another page
  • link = the link you want the image to navigate to, including http://
  • linktarget = use one of these: _blank for new window, _self for same window, _parent for parent frame, _top for full body
  • image = the URL path for the image you wish to display, beginning with http:// and typically ending with .jpg, .png or .gif
  • It is possible to combine the image carousel with column shortcodes to control the sizing.
