even more responsive-ier

finally took care of a nagging part of my site… the top slideshow. it wasn’t responsive before and now it is

it’s based off the responsive slider plugin. i had to make a minor change to it so it would show six slides per page load, choosing randomly from the library of slides. by default, it would show x amount of slides, where x is set in the settings > reading section (“Blog pages show at most”)

default

$slides = new WP_Query( array( 'post_type' => 'slides', 'order' => 'ASC', 'orderby' => 'menu_order' ) );

updated

$slides = new WP_Query( array( 'post_type' => 'slides', 'order' => 'ASC', 'orderby' => 'rand', 'posts_per_page' => 6 ) );

i actually didn’t expect the 'orderby' => 'rand' part to do what it did (choose randomly from the library of slides), but i’m pretty happy with it. this way, i can upload as many slides and not have to worry about ordering them in any special way

'posts_per_page' => 6 is what controls the amount of slides that are shown in the slideshow

yes, i’m aware that this will be killed if i update the plugin…
