Can anyone recommend a good slidshow plugin for posts? (3 posts)

    Hi,

    I run a blog called Urban Ghosts (http://www.urbanghostsmedia.com) and I'm looking to add a slideshow to some of my posts. This will be ideally in the form of main image with arrows to the left and right and thumbnails below.

    Of paramount importance is the need for a new page ID/URL to be generated each time a different image in the slideshow is clicked, because I want to try and increase page views (sorry if anyone thinks I'm selling out here!).

    I've tried NextGEN gallery but I couldn't get it to display properly, and when I tried to add the GalleryView plugin (looks awesome in demos) it didn't work at all. I've also tried Gallery PRO but it doesn't do what I need it to do in terms of page IDs, despite looking perfect.

    Ideally the slider will look something like this example at HuffPost: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/michelle-young/the-last-section-of-the-high-line_b_1578641.html

    Admittedly I'd assumed finding a plugin would be easy but it's proving more difficult than I'd expected! If anyone can offer any help, advice, recommendations etc, I'd be massively grateful.

    Thanks in advance for your help :)

    Tom

    meteor slides - the plugin author provides good support on how to configure the slider

    Thanks Marklcm, that looks like a good option and I'll definitely test it out :) Sorry too for my delayed response. I've been travelling and missed your message. Thanks again for your help!
