Custom Post Type Slider Flexslider with Advanced Custom Fields

Place the following in your functions file or theme plugin:

It will register your post type, “slides”, and enqueue your javascripts, “jquery”, “custom” and “flexslider” that can be found further down.

 // Enqueueing all the java script in a no conflict mode
 function ineedmyjava() {
	if (!is_admin()) {
 
		wp_deregister_script('jquery');
		wp_register_script('jquery', 'http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js', false, '1.10.2', true);
		wp_enqueue_script('jquery');
		
		// Custom Theme scripts...
		wp_register_script(
			'custom',
			get_bloginfo('template_directory') . '/js/custom.js',
			array('jquery') );
		wp_enqueue_script('custom');
		
		
		// Homepage slider 'flexslider' scripts...
		wp_register_script(
			'flexslider',
			get_bloginfo('template_directory') . '/js/flexslider.js',
			array('jquery') );
		wp_enqueue_script('flexslider');
		
	}
}
 
add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'ineedmyjava');


/* Custom Post Types */

add_action('init', 'js_custom_init');
function js_custom_init() 
{
   // Register the Slides Custom Post Type
  
     $labels = array(
	'name' => _x('Slides', 'post type general name'),

  } // close custom post type

These are the javascript files you need to include in a folder, “js” in you theme. The other points to google’s hosted version.
Custom.js
Flexslider.js

In a theme file, where ever…
This Custom Post Type includes the Advanced Custom Fields Plugin to use an image uploader, set to “image url”. This is in it’s simplest form. You can add more Custom Fields if you like and add them between the list item.

<?php 
// Query the Post type Slides
$querySlides = array(
	'post_type' => 'slides',
);
// The Query
$the_query = new WP_Query( $querySlides );
?>
<?php 
// The Loop
 if ( $the_query->have_posts()) : ?>

<div class="flexslider">
        <ul class="slides">
        <?php while ( $the_query->have_posts() ) : ?>
			<?php $the_query->the_post(); ?>
            
            <li> 
                <div class="banner">
                <?php if(get_field('slide_image')!="") { ?>
                		<img src="<?php the_field('slide_image'); ?>" />
                  <?php } ?>
                </div><!-- home banner pic -->
            </li>
            
           <?php endwhile; ?>
      	 </ul><!-- slides -->
</div><!-- .flexslider -->
         <?php endif; // end loop ?>
        
    <?php wp_reset_postdata(); ?>
