    This seem like just what I'm looking for but I need some directions on how to use it. I tried to figure it out but am not quite getting it. Are there any instructions besides what you have provided here?

    Hi!

    It should be pretty straightforward. Activating the plugin will give you a new post type called Press which will appear with the other post types (e.g. somewhere under Posts). Add a new press article the same way you would a regular post, making sure you use the Featured Image functionality for the image.

    Once you have articles added, use one of the [presspage] shortcodes on any post or page to display the gallery. The width and height parameters (which are optional) control the size of the images that display.

    Does that help?

    I really like the idea of this, but my coding skills and knowledge of wordpress are limited. I have been playing around with it for about an hour and a half, and still can't get it to come up right.
    So the way my website and template work is is that I have pages, not blog posts. I see the Press thing, and I can't get the featured image to pop up when I publish it, even though I have uploaded one- it just shows the link as a title to the article, no thumbnail.

    I also can't link the press to one of my pages or successive stories onto the same page. I guess I don't understand how to insert and where to insert the shortcode. Ideas?

    Okay- new problem: is there a way to put a space in between the articles? so they are merging into one another?

    If you have a page, you'd put the shortcode in the page. The shortcode will display all the images in a sliding gallery. The images it uses are the ones that have been set as the featured image. When you have saved the Press Page article with the featured image, does it look like this: http://cl.ly/image/1m2y1h1V441k ?

    Yes with some custom css. You'd first need a theme that allows you to add custom css, or a plugin, like My Custom CSS or Jetpack. Once you have that you can add this to your css:

    #makeMeScrollable div.scrollableArea section {
         padding-left: 10px;
    }

    There's more tips for styling the scrolling images in the project site for the jQuery plugin: http://www.smoothdivscroll.com/
