    Anyone know of a gallery type plugin that will display multiple "thumbnail" sized images at once and rotate them in and out? The only gallery plugins I'm seeing are one image displayed at a time. A perfect example is http://thesmith.org/about-us I don't know Java and I'd rather not use flash. Is there a way to accomplish this with WordPress? The gallery needs to appear on every page. Currently I have a static jpg as a placeholder. Slideshow or gallery would be 1000px wide and probably just switch images randomly. Would be fantastic if it could be linked to individual images. No viewer participation is necessary other than linking. Thanks a lot!

    Both of these plugins display 1 image at a time. I would have to create 7 or 8 galleries and place them side by side to achieve what I'm looking for. If you take a look at the link I posted you will see what I'm trying to do. If I'm wrong and either of these plugins can display multiple images at the same time please let me know but I see no documentation of that anywhere on their pages. Is this not possible?

    For anyone interested, I ended up using the Meteor Slide plugin that I was already aware of. I couldn't find a plugin that could display multiple images so I ended up using this plugin to build multiple galleries side by side. Various slideshows placed side by side totaling the 1000px webpage size. When finished, the site will reside at Posh Hair Geneva. Feel free to take a look for examples. Thanks to Josh Leuze for creating an awesome plugin.

    Hi inhouse.
    Thank you for your post. Right now I'm looking for a slideshow that displays multiple pictures (5 images) in a row and automatically fades to the next 5 images of the gallery after several seconds.

    Did you find another solution as mentioned above in the last 9 months?

    I mean, managing all the images of 5 galleries is exhausting and not the best solution at all...

    Can anyone else help me? Thanks a lot in advance!

    Sorry tobyz, I used Meteor Slides for that project as well as others. It is actually a dynamic plugin that enables you to have an image show up in multiple slideshows. Might be the best option for you though. There are dozens of these types of plugins though.

    Thank you inhouse.
    At Posh hair you linked the images in the slideshow to a zoom version of the certain image. How does this work? Did you customize the template? What exactly did you change?

    Thanks!

    I used a custom template. The plugin author explains how to do this on his website. He designed it as a basic plugin but it is simple to modify. I am in no way an advanced user. Good luck!

    Tobyz, this is the section you'll need to edit to make the slideshow open in a lightbox. I am also using NextGen Gallery on that build so this ties in to the NextGen functionality.

    Modify line 108 in "meteor-slideshow.php". It is highly recommended to create your own template rather than hack the plugin.

    <?php // Adds slide image with Slide URL link
    
    				if ( get_post_meta( $post->ID, "slide_url_value", $single = true ) != "" ): ?>
    
    					<a href="<?php echo get_post_meta( $post->ID, "slide_url_value", $single = true ); ?>" class="shutterset_website-filmstrip-images" title="<?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_post_thumbnail( 'featured-slide' ); ?></a>

    Basically I added the same class that I used for my NextGen Gallery for my Meteor Slideshow image so it opens in a lightbox if the image link is the file URL. Hope this helps!
