Custom Post Types and the Post List Slider Shortcode

    Hi,

    I’m attempting to use the Post List Slider Shortcode. I have created a Custom Post Type with a Taxonomy but cannot get it to appear within a Post List Slider.

    Here is my shortcode:

    [post_list_slider fx=”slide” timeout=”4″ nav_standard=”true” nav_arrows=”true” pause_play=”true” categories=”locations” thumbs=”full” post_content=”default” posts_per_slide=”1″ numberposts=”-1″ orderby=”date” order=”DESC” offset=”0″]

    My custom taxonomy is called ‘locations’ – any idea as to how I can pull in this into a Post List Slider?

    Many thanks

    Hello,

    I apologize, but there’s no feature to allow you to feed in a custom post type or taxonomy to a post list slider.

    If you are building a wish list I could use this too….

    This would be a great if you could include this functionality.

    PS: I noticed in the Post Slider shortcode generator that there is an option for a Custom Query. Can this be used to pull in a Custom Post Type or Taxonomy?

    In regards to the Post List Slider and Post Grid Slider, I do now have a custom “query” option added for the next update to the Shortcodes plugin and framework.

    Yes, however this shortcode currently does not do anything. You need to wait for Jump Start 1.0.1 for this shortcode to function.

    Starting with Jump Start 1.0.1 and Theme Blvd Shortcodes 1.0.5, Post List Sliders, Post Grid Sliders, and Post Sliders, will allow you to do a custom post type and taxonomy by utilizing the “query” parameter something like this:

    post_type=your_post_type&your_tax=your_term
