Easily create a carousel of images for display on your home page or anywhere else on your site.
Not yet, but in the future I plan to add an options screen that allows you to control various options of the carousel, including speed, animation effects, and more. The defaults should be pretty good to get you going.
Here is an example:
<div id="xencarouselcontainer"> <div id="xencarousel1" class="xencarousel" rel="xencarousel1"> <ul> <li> <a href="http://example.com/link-to-post-1" title="Post Title 1"> <img src="http://example.com/wp-content/uploads/image1.jpg" alt="Post Title 1" width="300" height="300" /> </a> </li> <li> <a href="http://example.com/link-to-post-2" title="Post Title 2"> <img src="http://example.com/wp-content/uploads/image2.jpg" alt="Post Title 2" width="300" height="300" /> </a> </li> </ul> </div> <span class="prev">Previous</span> <span class="next">Next</span> <div id="xencarouseloverlay"></div> </div>
All values are automatically determined from the Post/Page you associated with your slide with and the image size as reported by the Media Library.
They can be any size that you'd like, but for best results each slide should be the same size. The plugin does not do any image manipulation.
The project is now hosted on github.com. Just fork the project and send me a pull request.
