Over the past few months I have had various requests for content sliders and carousels that integrate WordPress posts on each slide.
This post will give you a quick run down of how to easily add a simple and easily customizable carousel with WordPress posts from a specified category.
To give you an example of what we are going to put together, I have implemented a carousel on my demo site. I implemented a WordPress theme template for the index page, and integrated the carousel on that page. You can output this wherever you can add a WordPress loop with query_posts.
