[resolved] How do I get a slideshow widget that links to posts? (2 posts)

    My goal is to have a photo slideshow in my sidebar:
    1. in which each photo has caption text that I choose
    2. which works like a slideshow with automatic transitions (that can be simple)
    3. where clicking on a photo links to a post or page of my choice
    4. and which works in the sidebar.

    Featured Content Gallery does all of the above, but I can't get it to work in a sidebar, even with ExecPHP.

    I was able to tweak NextGEN Gallery as described here to get a gallery of photos to do what I need, but can't figure out how to do that for a slideshow.

    I even tried the RockYou plugin/widget, but can't create links behind each photo.

    My preferred solution would involve NextGEN Gallery, but I'll take anything that works reliably.

    I would appreciate any advice or help.

    Well, I found a fantastic solution. For others who may be interested, I'm using Featurific, and I'm extremely happy with it. It addresses all of my above-described goals.
