WP Image Carousel

WP Image Carousel lets you easily add stylish, highly customizable image carousels to your site.

The automatic plugin installer should work for most people. Manual installation is
easy and takes fewer than five minutes.

  1. Download the plugin, unpack it and upload the 'wpic' folder to your
    wp-content/plugins directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress.
  3. Go to Settings -> WPIC Options to configure the default options.

Now for the real question, how do I use this plugin?

First of all go to the plugin's options panel, and set up your default settings. Then
copy the shortcode displayed at the top of the options page to your page/post. Click
between the begging of the shortcode, and the end of it which will place your cursor
at the following position:

[wpic]SOMEWHERE HERE![/wpic]

Then click on the "Add Media" button and select the images that you want the
carousel to display by holding the control key, and click on the images. Now take a
look at the size of your images in the bottom-right corner. Make sure you select the
same size for each image you would like to display. Take note of the this size. Hit the
insert into post button, and wait for the images to display. As a reminder, the images
should display "inside" the shortocde, between the end and the beginning. Take a
look at the image you added, and between each image add the following two
characters:

/!

(leading slash and exclamation mark). Do not add the two characters before the
first image, or after the last image. Take a look at the screenshots tab, to get a picture
of what you have to do. You can edit the shortcode settings like changing the color
of the buttons, or the speeds. Next, update the width and height settings of the
shortcode so that they would match the dimensions of your images (the one we
took note of earlier). If the dimensions of the images are the same dimensions you
entered in the default plugin settings, then delete the width and height shortcode
settings. (If you are having troubles with this part, do not hesitate to ask on the
forums). Everything should be set, try publishing the post/page and viewing it. If
everything worked, then great! If not, re-read these steps, take a look at the
screenshots, or ask on the forums. We are going to try to replay as fast as possible.

Note If you need ANY help with this plugin, please post a question in the plugin's forum
so that I can help you. We are not going to create a plugin, just so that it could sit
there with no support. So please, if you ever need any help with this plugin, create a
thread in the forums.
