I'm trying to build a carousel that has an image, a line of text and links to a page in the site.
the current way i've done is to set a fixed number of fields in the webparts (10 copies of text, image selectors and url selectors.
is there a better way to this? where i can store a collection of carousel objects with the field, and then allow the cms users to pick the ones they want.
you could create a custom form control to do this:
But what I'd use is a custom page type. In which you create the 3 fields. In your carousel (repeater) you let the editor pick a path or property or relation or... (whatever suits your need). This way you can also make sure the 'image slides' can be easily reused in an other place.
I agree with David. The custom page type is the best way to handle creating carousel items. I wrote a blog post on using carousels with kentico a while back that you might find helpful.
thats how i would do it in other CMS' i have used before, just wasnt sure how to implement it in kentico.
thanks for the shove in the right direction!
