Been googling for an hour now can’t find the answer to what feels like a simple question.
I have a very basic slideshow. I am using the shortcode to load it into the template page.
I have also customized the view file gallery.php. Pretty much I just pulled out all the extra stuff and just have the foreach loop.
I have tried using the php shuffle on the $images array but that doesn’t fix the problem.
shuffle($images); foreach ( $images as $image ) :
Any other ideas?
There’s a function defined in
nggfunctions.php that you can use directly in the template page:
/* nggShowRandomRecent($type, $maxImages, $template, $galleryId) - return recent or random images * * @access public * @param string $type 'id' (for latest addition to DB), 'date' (for image with the latest date), 'sort' (for image sorted by user order) or 'random' * @param integer $maxImages of images * @param string $template (optional) name for a template file, look for gallery-$template * @param int $galleryId Limit to a specific gallery * @return the content */
Or you can use this shortcode, defined in the
/** * Function to show a gallery of random or the most recent images with shortcode of type: * * [random max="7" template="filename" id="2" /] * [recent max="7" template="filename" id="3" mode="date" /] * where * - max is the maximum number of random or recent images to show * - template is a name for a gallery template, which is located in themefolder/nggallery or plugins/nextgen-gallery/view * - id is the gallery id, if the recent/random pictures shall be taken from a specific gallery only * - mode is either "id" (which takes the latest additions to the databse, default) * or "date" (which takes the latest pictures by EXIF date) * or "sort" (which takes the pictures by user sort order) * * @param array $atts * @return the_content */
