Jetpack carousel for gallery field

  • Hello,

    I’ve created a simple gallery with the gallery field. Instead of linking to the image attachment I would like to have the jetpack carousel effect. Is it possible?

  • If the jetpack carousel has a shortcode you can get the images and pass them to that shortcode. Near the end of this document there is an example of using the WP gallery shortcode to show the gallery that you can use as an example.

  • Thank for your help John, but I am not a coder and I’m lost. Do you know where I can start to understand that code?

  • I just read this here:

    With Carousel active, any standard WordPress galleries you have embedded in posts or pages will launch a gorgeous full-screen photo browsing experience with comments and EXIF metadata.

    This means that if you have jetpack carousel active and you put your images into a WP gallery that it will automatically cause it to be a jetpack carousel.

    So the code you need is almost exactly what is in the acf gallery document I linked to above. Her it is with a little more detail and commenting.

        // replace 'gallery' below with the name of your field
        $image_ids = get_field('gallery', false, false);
        // do a little test to make sure images were added
        // to prevent php error
        if (is_array($image_ids) && count($image_ids)) {
            $shortcode = '[gallery ids="' . implode(',', $image_ids) . '"]';
            echo do_shortcode( $shortcode );

    If you copy and paste that into your template where you want the carousel to appear it should work.

  • Hello John,

    Thank for your help, in fact it does work, but it isn’t exactly what I’m trying to achieve. I got this design:

    Using this code:

    <div class="container">
    	<div class="row">
    		$images = get_field('fotografias_de_artista');
    		if( $images ): ?>
    		<div class="col-sm-12"><h2 class="seccion">Fotos</h2></div>
    		<?php foreach( $images as $image ): ?>
    		<div class="col-sm-3">
    			<a href="<?php echo $image['url']; ?>">
    				<img src="<?php echo $image['sizes']['large']; ?>" class="img-responsive img-disco" alt="<?php echo $image['alt']; ?>" />
    			<p><?php echo $image['caption']; ?></p>
    	<?php endforeach; ?>
    <?php endif; ?>
    </div><!-- #row -->
    </div><!-- #container -->

    What I want is to have the Jetpack carousel for those pictures, but when I try using the code above (your post) it displays a mosaic gallery which I don’t know how to customize.

  • The documentation that I linked to was the only thing I could find about using jetpack carousel with a shortcode. I’m not familiar with this plugin at all, I actually avoid jetpack. Your best bet for getting support for more than this would be to contact their support.

  • You were right, the method that you proposed is the only one (at least that I know) that combines ACF Gallery and Jetpack Carousel. I asked Jetpack support and it is not possible to do what I asked for.
