    Hiya,

    I am trying to code some navigation that uses thumbnails of the next entry image instead of arrows. I have tried looking at

    1) Using the Orbit slider - However as this rotates via the images held in a single entry I let go of that idea.

    2) Using pagination - Yes it will rotate through the different entries, however when I tried to pull images out instead of the text.. it didn’t like that.

    If you could point me in the right direction I would be most grateful.

    Cheers

    Hi,

    Are you referring to https://docs.expressionengine.com/latest/channel/entry_linking.html

    If yes, there isn’t a native variable to call an image from a specific entry, but you might be able to put something together using the entry_id variable. https://docs.expressionengine.com/latest/channel/entry_linking.html#id4

    Like path/to/images/image-{entry_id}.jpg
