    This plugin breaks my theme. It causes my posts to display text all over the place on the front page. I’m wondering if it’s something odd with the theme called “iGames”? I’d like to have a horizontal gallery of thumbnails at the footer of my site, something like the footer on this website:


    If you have suggestions or another plugin for this, please let me know.

    I cannot get this to work with my Thesis Footer. It only shows one image, does not scroll and the arrows are aligned vertically on top of each other.
    This is the code:
    function custom_footer() {
    if (is_front_page()) {

    add_action('thesis_hook_footer', 'custom_footer', '1');

    Dear admin,

    Loving this plug in. Its perfect for what I want but it would be really really useful if there was a way of putting a URL against each image. Is this possible? Or is there any alternative that has the same layout as this plug in?
    Thank you in advance!

    Gopi, thanks for your great work with these WP plugins. For Tiny Carousel Horizontal Slider, can it be used more than once in a web site – e.g image folder 1 on page a, image folder 2 on page b, image folder 3 on page c? Or multiple times on same page? Also, is it possible to use zoom effect so that when carousel is stopped by user and an image clicked, it displays larger image with fancy zoom?

    • Admin
      August 9, 2012 at 3:50 pm #

      No, You can not use multiple times on the same page…. But you can create different gallery for each page.

      • Ken
        August 10, 2012 at 1:26 am #

        OK, thanks, I now have different galleries on 3 different pages. But last image gets cut short so experimenting with settings. Where is the CSS file to change padding between images?

  17. Ken
    August 14, 2012 at 1:54 am #

    To prevent cutting off last image, had to repeat first image at end of sequence. I need images to appear in correct sequence. They are named 1-[imagename], 2-[imagename], etc and were saved in correct sequence for timestamp – but they display in random order (OK on my own localhost but not on live server). How can I fix this please? Here is test page:

    Hi. I’ve got the carousel to show on my homepage and look the way I want it. But the javascript doesn’t seem to be working. It doesn’t slide automatically and the buttons don’t work.

    Also, in the admin, to make the buttons appear I have to choose Controls = False. Shouldn’t that be the other way around?

    Gopi, I’ve just downloaded Information Reel Message Scroller; looks good, thanks.
    I have a question: I am looking to put a multi image slider (with text option next to image) on a new WP site using WP Shop template. Thinking of Tiny Carousel. Will this take up to 50 images? each approx half the width of images shown in Demo? Can I add text alongside the image (eg Textbox)? Alternatively, please let me know which of your plugins will do this.I will be putting the horizontal slider just under the header display. Thanks, Denis

    I have “random” turned off, so I’m not sure why it’s ignoring the filenames, etc.

    This plugin is really fine ! Exactly what I searched but.. If I have several sliders on the same page, only the first one is working… Others just stand on the first picture..
    I’ve seen something weird in the source : everyone has the same ID (#tiny-carousel-slider1) whereas in the backoffice anyone is called this way (but “[tiny-carousel-slider id=”5″]””[tiny-carousel-slider id=”4″]”, etc…)

    Can you help me ? Does anyone get this issue ?

    So help me to solve this issues.

      October 23, 2012 at 2:11 pm #

      Please check your java script. I think because of the JQuery conflict. Please comment the Jquery load from the plugin file and try again.

    The imagesfolder lays under http://www.mywebsite.se/blahablaha/blahaha/imagesfolder and all the images is saved JPG.

    I got the latest version of WP and using the theme newshun and also uses the plugin Easing Slider for something else I don’tthink it’sa conflict between them two.

    This is urgent, I need an answer at the end of this day or I’ll get another plugin. My website is up and running and it can’t look like shit for long time.

    Hi Gopi,

    Great plugin, exactly what I was looking for. I have though 2 issues :

    1. The left arrow doesn’t appear – it’s in the code (even the link works) but I can’t seem to be able to have it appear
    2. The right arrow keeps blinking in an annoying way

    You can see the plugin @ work here – http://atwild.com/ and I can submit the admin setting if needed.

      to your main theme css file, and they will not be shown, not sure if it will have the same id (#tiny-carousel-slider1), check your page code.

    BUT, it stopped working. Please see http://www.tillerevents.com/clients/ It’s finding the image folder but it’s not displaying them all.

    Using “Inspect Element” I can see they appear to be in there stacked and hidden. So maybe it’s a CSS thing?

    Hi Gopi.

    But it WAS working. It’s been working for over a year, and the client just noticed it was broken.

    The theme hasn’t changed at all in that time—and they hadn’t updated WordPress either. I did update wordpress, but that didn’t affect anything.

    Any ideas what would be causing the conflict?

    I am not finding any info on how to upload my images to the slider. I am not a developer so I’m a little unsure of how to do this outside of the WP dashboard.

    I’m just a guy trying to build a site simple with wordpress. I am basically asking for a description on how to upload the images to the slider everything else makes sense.

    Thank you,

      In you dashboard you have menu called media, use that menu to upload your images. once you uploaded the image, copy the URL and use it in the plugin.

    Hello Gopi, your carousel is almost perfect for me -:)

    But isn’t it possible to add a link on each image, to go to the post about this image …

    Look at my website to understand what i want to say … I make an example for you here

      Your link has been removed because its broken. FYI, preview link will not work without login.

      Image Width option available in gallery add/edit page not in the setting page. Its responsive gallery, automatically fit to the page.

    A great plugin that nearly does all that I need. If you could add the ability to manage individual images and set a url/link to per image it would be a very useful plugin.
