Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

Hi, I would like to specify the order that the header images load and rotate on my website. I tried to follow the instructions from this blog post to no avail. Here is a link to my site so you can see what I am trying to do- I am trying to get the colored evolution sequence from left to right.

Has anybody already found a solution for this? Thank you, Brian

It looks like you don't have your images named sequentially. The should be something like 1-header.jpg, 2-header.jpg, 3-header.jpg, etc. in the order you want. You have lm1red.jpg, mh6.jpg, 6mh6.jpg. Thus the rotato doesn't know what order you want.

Thanks for the help guys, but even when I name them sequentially, there seems to be no reason to the order. But, the order does repeat itself. Very weird.

do you know what server your site is running on? is is linux or something else?

could you try this. Edit bfa_m_find_in_dir.php (it's in the functions folder) and find line 36 (in version 3.5.1) which should be
HTML Code:
    closedir( $dh );
and change it to
HTML Code:
    sort($file);
    closedir( $dh );
it seems that the php 'readdir' functions returns the files in the directory
Quote:
...in the order in which they are stored by the filesystem.
I'm thinking your server doesn't store them by name, maybe by date. Hopefully this will fix it.

Thank you for the reply Juggledad, I tried your suggestion and edited the php file, but I could not get the files ordered. To see if the server was storing the photos chronologically, I deleted the files from the header folder and re-uploaded them one at a time. Still no order.

I found a solution that allows me a little more control- I made an animated gif in photoshop. The one drawback is that I can't seem to get the frames to fade in and out so I am still interested to a solution to this problem if someone comes across it. Thanks again, Brian

How about a slideshow plugin. I think some of them allow for random or sequential ordering.

Brian,
can you put back in the iages and if you are willing, could you send me a PM with an admin id and PW so I can take a look and maybe do some debugging. I can't recreate it on my system so I need to test where it is a problem.

I added a piece of code and it seems to be working, but your images need to be renamed. If you hafe 1.jpg, 2.jpg 3.jpg, 11.jpg and 22.jpg and sort them, you will get
1.jpg, 11.jpg, 2.jpg, 22.jpg, 3.jpg
you would have to call them 01.jpg, 02.jpg 03.jpg, 11.jpg and 22.jpg

The easiest thing is to call them image-01.jpg, image-02.jpg etc.

Please rename the images and see it it works now.
