How to add Javascript events to the Carousel view

Add this to your site’s js to enable events such as adding Google Analytics tracking code to individual Carousel slides:

jQuery(document).on( 'jp_carousel.selectSlide', '.jp-carousel-wrap', function( event, slides ) {
	// This is just to show you what values get passed in.  Delete it before going to production.
	if ( window.console ) {
		console.log( this );
		console.log( event );
		console.log( slides );
		console.log( slides[0] );

Automatically close comments in the Carousel view

You can use the following code to automatically close comments in the Carousel view, based on the number of days you’ve defined in Settings > Discussion:

function jpcarousel_auto_close_comments( $open, $post_id ) {
	$post = get_post( $post_id );

	$days_old = (int) get_option( 'close_comments_days_old' );

	if ( ! $days_old )
		return $open;

	if( $post->post_type == 'attachment' && time() - strtotime( $post->post_date_gmt ) > ( $days_old * DAY_IN_SECONDS ) ) {
		return false;
	}
	return $open;
}
add_filter( 'comments_open', 'jpcarousel_auto_close_comments', 10 , 2 );

How to remove the comment form from Carousel View

Sometimes, you may not want your readers to comment on single images. If that’s the case, you can deactivate comments on all attachment pages and in the Carousel view by adding this code snippet to your theme’s functions.php file:

function tweakjp_rm_comments_att( $open, $post_id ) {
    $post = get_post( $post_id );
    if( $post->post_type == 'attachment' ) {
        return false;
    }
    return $open;
}
add_filter( 'comments_open', 'tweakjp_rm_comments_att', 10 , 2 );

How to remove stylsheets added by Tiled Galleries and Carousel

If you wish to use your own stylesheets instead of the ones that are automatically added to the posts where you’ve inserted a Tiled Gallery, or a gallery using Carousel, you can add the following code to your theme’s functions.php file, or to a functionality plugin.

To remove Tiled Galleries’s stylesheet:

function tweakjp_rm_tiledcss(){
    wp_dequeue_style( 'tiled-gallery' );
}
add_action( 'wp_footer', 'tweakjp_rm_tiledcss' );

To remove Carousel’s stylesheet:

function changejp_dequeue_styles() {
    wp_dequeue_style( 'jetpack-carousel' );
}
add_action( 'post_gallery', 'changejp_dequeue_styles', 1001 );
