Changing / rotating images in pages - NOT header (5 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm looking for a plugin or other solution which enables rotating images within pages/posts. Not slide show, but just changing pictures. One thing: I am not talking about the header image here. That's what I end up with if I try to Google or search forums.

    A must have is good compatibility with Add from server
    because I don't like the 'extra' images wordpress creates (thumbnail etc).

    I use Atahualpa and in general I'm very happy with it.

    Thanks for your help!

    NextGen Gallery is one of the most popular plugins in the WordPress Plugin Directory.

    I've tried it, but it requires me to copy all images instead of pointing to an existing directory. That was just what I wanted to avoid. It like it to be the same thing as with the header: here's the location, you do the rest.

    I only want to say: here are the pictures, please show them one by one.

    Now I have to make copies of all pictures and I think that's a waste and probably also not the best for the performance.

    If anybody has a simpler solution, please come forward!

    You can add any custom HTML or PHP in a text widget to the sidebar. The idea of the Gallery is for those who don't want to code or struggle with it. So, it's in fact quite simple for most users.

    Well, it's on the page that I want the rotating pictures. So I have to add the HTML to the page, I guess.

    I will try some things I googled, like this and this.

    What I will do is add a function ´slideshow´ to my style.css and call that function in the HTML of the page.

    Or something like that... I´m no programmer, but I can understand a bit of the code and I hope this´ll be enough to see what to use and what not.

    This way, I can keep my image directorie as I like.

    Shame there is no simpler solution or plugin for that. But in the end I will´ve learned something new. Anyhow, thanks for the help, Swanson.
