Hi I am trying to instegrate a slider into my wordpress theme.This is what I have so far:

                            $slider_query = new WP_Query(array(

                                        if(function_exists('has_post_thumbnail') && has_post_thumbnail()){

While this does work and retrieves the image I need to be able to retribe the url because I have to set different title attributes that are stored for the caption.

I have also tryed to get the URL using

$url = wp_get_attachment_image_src(the_post_thumbnail());

But for som reason the query returns 10 links img's and I set it to 5 only.Wierd thing is that the even images have no source.

Anyone know of a way to retrieve the thumbnail url other then this? If not then why do I get 10 images in the query?

Just change showposts instead of posts_per_page.

  • A code sample and – more important – an explanation could turn this fragment into an answer. ;)
