I'm having trouble getting started with EasyRotator for WordPress; what can I do?

Please see the detailed installation and usage instructions on our website. If you can't find the answer there, we offer responsive complimentary support.

I want to add a rotator to my theme's header; how can I do this?

You can use the template function included with the plugin to add rotators to the header or any other area of your template. To do this, first create your rotator and insert it into a temporary page; this will allow you to obtain the special rotator ID code. When you insert the rotator in your page, a shortcode will be inserted:

[easyrotator]erc_00_xxxxxxx[/easyrotator]

The erc_00_xxxxxxx value is the special rotator ID code. To add this rotator to your template, add the following function call in your template file:

<?php
easyrotator_display_rotator('erc_00_xxxxxxx');
?>

Replace erc_00_xxxxxxx with the real code you obtained by creating the rotator.

How can I customize the layout?

You can read about making both basic and advanced customizations to layouts in this article. You can customize positioning, fonts, colors, and even button images. You'll also find instructions for modifying the transition speed.

I'm using EasyRotator for WordPress on a RTL (right-to-left) site, and the images don't appear

When working with an RTL site, you need to add the following CSS to your theme's stylesheet:

div.dwuserEasyRotator {
   direction: ltr;
}

This will ensure that the rotators appear and function properly. (Update: This code is now automatically applied for you in most cases.)

Scaling and cropping are set when you apply a layout template in the Layout/Presentation section of the editor. To learn more about these options, see this article.
