A fullscreen background slideshow plugin
A fullscreen background slideshow plugin based on Jay Salvat's Vegas Background jQuery Plugin
You can see a working demo at http://demo.jamesdbruner.com/
Now there are a couple different parameters you can use. Here's a list of ALL of them:
id -- the id of the specific vegas slider you want to pull from
fade -- the amount of fade you want between two images in milliseconds
delay -- the amount of delay you want between two images in milliseconds
overlay -- ...an overlay over your images
title -- uses the title you designated in the admin area when you're creating the vegas slide
arrows -- adds supersized arrows on the left and right sides of your images to designated next/previous
Keep in mind that you MUST have an id and that the shortcode is generated for you when you create a new vegas slide with the id you'll need.
Here's an example of a shortcode that you would put into the specific page you want the slider to show up on:
[vegasslider id="565" fade="1500" delay ="4500" overlay="http://mydomain.com/urloftheimage/" title="yes" arrows="yes"]
If you want just one slider to appear on all pages you just need to follow these steps:
First go to Appearance -> Editor and from there navigate to the header.php template on the right hand side.
You'll see some code that looks similar to this:
<?php /** * The template for displaying front page pages. * */ ?> <?php get_header(); ?>
NOTE: It must be added after wp_head() call. Otherwise, it will not work.
Immediately after that put this code (you'll have to edit to be your shortcode within the quotation marks):
<?php echo do_shortcode( '[vegasslider id="5" delay="4500" fade="1500" overlay="http://demo.jamesdbruner.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/az_subtle.png"]' ) ?>
Save the file and you should be done.
