Cool slideshow for posts and pages, with different themes to choose from + Widget. Settings and documentation are under Plugin -> iSlidex. Official
Copy and paste one of these codes inside your posts/pages, to display the slideshow:
[islidex](it will show on top of the post content)
<?php show_islidex(); ?>inside your template
This function lets you add as many iSlidex as you want across your site, all with different settings, indipendent from this page settings or other iSlidex in your site.
Please remember that you can have max 3 iSlidex in the same page, but they can't be of the same type (eg. you can have 1 Nivo widget + 1 Nivo standard + 1 custom Nivo, but you can't have 2 custom Nivos or 2 standard Apple or 2 widgets with same style).
Copy and paste
[islidex_custom cat=5 num=3 w=450 h=200 theme=1] in your posts or pages. Remember to change the numbers depending on the values you prefer.
If you want to use it directly in the template code, use
The numbers 5, 3, 450, 200, 1 are only an example here, you must change them depending on the values you prefer.
These numbers represent, in order:
category (where to get the posts from), max
number of posts/slides (to show in iSlidex),
width (of the slider),
height (of the slider),
theme (1 is Apple, 2 is Nivo, 3 is Piecemaker, 4 is Timeline).
Please replace the numbers with the settings you prefer, each time you want to add a new slider in a different location.
cat= can take also multiple categories, separated by comma. Just type for example
If for some posts with several images, you want to set a specific image and/or thumb, add these custom fields:
islidex_thumb as the Field Name, and paste the image link as the Field Value.
If you want to change the look and feel of the themes, feel free to do it by uploading a file named
islidex.css inside your template folder.
You may want to add
!important in your CSS statements, as the pre-compiled CSS in iSlidex could override your custom ones sometimes.
Please bare in mind that this is a free plugin, that the time to work on it is limited and that we do our best anyway to give everybody a cool free plugin. We can't always add new features to the standard, custom and widget features of iSlidex altogether, sometimes we will have to improve only one of them or maybe two, and finish up in the next release. We prefer to push small but important little updates and fixes rather than making you wait months for the smallest improvement. So if something doesn't work as you expected (eg. the custom iSlidex doesn't still support the Greek theme) please don't be upset or report the plugin as broken, either use another theme, or wait for an update or use another plugin. Thanks for understanding.
