Is there a clickable flash slideshow plugin? (8 posts)

    Hello,

    I have been searching and searching for a plugin that will do something like what is found on the NPR start page (www.npr.org). I would like to have a slideshow of images or ads which can be clicked on to take the user to that particular story or maybe even an external URL. Anyone have an idea how this could be done?

    I have tested the Next Gen Gallery extensively, but there seems to be no way to put links on the rotating images.

    Thanks for reading.

    Kurt

    I was looking for the same thing. I wanted to adept nextgen gallery to an advertising slideshow banner with a link to the specific website for the ad.
    I managed to adept the gallery with a single line of code:

    in the file nggextractXML.php I added the next line:

    echo " <info>".strip_tags(stripslashes($picture->description))."</info>\n";

    Just before:

    echo " </track>\n";

    at the bottom of this file:
    Now I can write an url in the description block of the image and when I click the image it opens the website inside a new window.
    Make sure you mark the option Show next image on click on the Options -> Slideshow page of the nextgen-gallery

    DeezJee:

    I tried your method. It works great! The only problem is that I can't figure out how to make the links open in the same page instead of opening a new window. Could you explain how to do this? Thanks a bunch.

    Could also consider Featured Category Slideshow?

    Not sure if it works for 2.6, but it's tested for 2.5.
