[SOLVED] Version 3.4.2 and Featured Content Gallery

I've tried everything, Javascript set to external, PHP editing, featuring more than 2 items. I can't get the gallery to show up. Does anyone know of any alternative content sliders or can give me a step by step to make FCG work?

Try these changes to the FCG code:

In FCG's jd.gallery.js.php


fadeDuration: <?=$fcg_fade_duration ?>,
fadeDuration: <?php echo $fcg_fade_duration ?>,


delay: <?=$fcg_delay ?>,
delay: <?php echo $fcg_delay ?>,


defaultTransition: '<?=$fcg_default_transaction ?>',
defaultTransition: '<?php echo $fcg_default_transaction ?>',


textShowCarousel: '<?=$fcg_button ?>',
textShowCarousel: '<?php echo $fcg_button ?>',

Also, you'd have to put the

PHP Code:
<?php include (ABSPATH '/wp-content/plugins/featured-content-gallery/gallery.php'); ?>
code directly into one of the theme files, e.g. into index.php right below

PHP Code:
get_header(); ?> 
Putting the FCG code into one of the Atahualpa theme option text areas messes up the LOOP. The FCG display works, but the remaining content, e.g. page content or posts on the page doesn't get displayed.

If all this doesn't help, try replacing in FCG's gallery.php, all

$post->ID with get_the_ID()

Hello! I followed these directions, but when I load the updated index.php file suddenly my blog posts show on every page.

Hi Flynn,

I am attempting to make Featured Content Gallery work. www.pauloberle.com/stltheta.org/

but i want the gallery in a php sidebar widget. Does that break the loop?

Apparently its doing something bad because if I have that php widget active I can't see a sticky post that should be at the top of the homepage.

I think because I have a newer version of Featured Content Gallery, Flynn's code doesn't match up to the files that are there now. I posted about not being able to get this to work here-

I have
Version 3.2.0 of the plugin,
Or maybe I am just being dense.

The file jd.gallery.js.php is said to be inactive, and the code doesn't look the same. It has-
$fcg_button = get_option('gallery-fcg-button') != '' ? get_option('gallery-fcg-button') : "Featured Content";
$fcg_fade_duration = get_option('gallery-fade-duration') != '' ? get_option('gallery-fade-duration') : 500;
$fcg_delay = get_option('gallery-delay') != '' ? get_option('gallery-delay') : 9000;
$fcg_default_transaction = get_option('gallery-default-transaction') != '' ? get_option('gallery-default-transaction') : "fade";

I tried hard to make FCG work and eventually got frustrated. Then I tried Dynmanic Content Gallery and it worked perfectly for me, right after activation. http://www.studiograsshopper.ch/dyna...ntent-gallery/. You may want to try it and see if it does what you want. You can see it on my ATA site at www.mercyemsdsm.com.

Good luck!

I'm trying to do the same with Dynamic Content Gallery, I've followed the setup instructions here: http://www.studiograsshopper.ch/dyna...uration-guide/ - but I can't determine where I should place the php to call the plugin - index.php? bfa_hor_pages.php? Can I not add the php to the css inserts area so that I am not hacking Flynn's theme files?

I only want the featured posts to appear on a single static page called 'portfolio' that has the ID '801' per:

<?php if( is_page('801') ) {
} ?>

When I dropped this into the index.php, the gallery showed up, but in a weird left corner under the footer. Any help would be greatly appreciated...

I'm trying to replace autoviewer on this page with dcg: http://plusplus.ca/portfolio/

BTW - it also works well in a PHP widget - but can I get a widget to appear in the body of a page somehow? (using widget logic to exclude all but the desired page)

OK - solved - as above (first reply by Flynn in this thread), paste:

<?php if( is_page('801') ) {
} ?>

Directly under: 'get header' at top of index.php - and it shows up in the right place!
