    Hello,

    I have two questions about using the flex slider in the Contango Pro theme…

    1. I would like to create a post with three images in a flex slider and a fourth image that is inserted in the body of the post but not included in the flex slider. Is this possible to do?

    2. If I upload an image to the media library and attach it to a post, is it possible to remove the image from that post without permanently deleting it from the library and having to upload it again? If a user is editing and saving drafts as they are creating a post, there should be flexibility to do that.

    Thanks

    Jim

    In Contango WordPress Theme, Gallery post format is specially designed to display images as slider. In this logic, Contango gets all images attached to a post and set them in slider intelligently.

    As per your question, you will be able to insert an image to the Gallery post without appearing in the slider as follows,

    – Go to Media > Add New
    – Upload image to the Media Library
    – Edit this image, so you will be able to find its URL
    – Copy the File URL of this image

    * Now

    – Go to your gallery post
    – Insert this image directly in the editor without Add Media button. Following code snippet will help you to insert this image in the editor.

    [/CODE]

    This question is related to WordPress core. Following plugin may be helpful to you.

    Thank you for mentioning this plug-in. It actually solved both problems.

    • With regard to Question 2, I am easily able to unattach an image from a post using this plug-in
    • With regard to Question 1, the plug-in allowed me to unattach the fourth image from the post from the media library. Now when I return to the post, the fourth image is still inserted into the body of the post but no longer shows up in the flex slider. Problem solved!

    Thanks as always for the helpful support.

    Hello,

    I’m having the same problem. But even with the plugin the image still appears on the slide…

    Hi,

    Make sure, which images are attached to the post.
    Images attached to the post should display in the slider.

    Thanks
