I am trying to get owl carousel to respect the image style declared in the manage display setting for the content type. The code I used to output in the node is:

<div class="owl-carousel owl-theme nav-inside box-shadow-custom mt-xl" data-plugin-options='{"items": 1, "margin": 10, "animateOut": "fadeOut", "autoplay": true, "autoplayTimeout": 3000}'>
            <?php foreach($image as $value):?>
                    <img src="<?php print file_create_url($value['uri']);?>" class="img-responsive"  alt="">
            <?php endforeach;?>

This renders the slides all different sizes and makes it have a background and causes it to look bad. Does anyone know how to in a custom node file make it respect the image style that I have created that cause it to scale and crop the images. Thanks.

  • Since you are not rendering the field normally, I don't see anywhere that the image style would be respected. What is the value of uri?

  • file_create_url() gives you original file URL, what you can do is then run it by image_style_url($style_name, $path) and you will get what you want.

  • I appreciate the help. I am so bad at php. cchen, is there any way you can show me what that would look like?

  • @tHaKaREe something like src="<?php $original_image_url = file_create_url($value['uri']); $styled_image_url = image_style_url($style_name, $original_image_url); print $styled_image_url;?>", you will have to find a way to get the $style_name value though. Does that make sense?

  • @tHaKaREe No worries. $style_name is the machine name of the image style you set in the display settings admin page. I think it should be available somewhere when you run dpm($node or something)... Should be pretty similar to how you get the $value['uri'] value.

Just to summarize my comments: 1. after getting the images' URLs, you can run them by image_style_url() function to get the URLs to the styled images. 2. you need to update the foreach() function to include an index such as foreach($image as $key=>$value), and use the $key index to loop through the image array.
