    I to am a newbie, and looking for a simple way to show images on a page in a blog. Is "anyfeed" just a sidebar widget or can it be used as the main feature on a page? And if so, how do I do that? Where/how are images applied to the page?

    Hi Janio,

    This is not presently an option, but that's a great feature idea. I will add that to the list of features to include in version 1.1.

    Thank you!

    Hey janio,

    I know you posted the question 2 months ago, but here is my response :)

    I've accomplished placing the anyfeed slideshow on a page by creating a custom widget space.

    Here are the 5 things you need to do:

    1. Goto your page template, "page.php" (or something similar)
    Add this code into the appropriate div

    <?php /**************************THIS IS THE ADDED 'Pager' WIDGET**************/ ?>
    <div id="Pager_ss">
    <?php if ( !function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') || !dynamic_sidebar('Pager') ) ?>
    </div>
    <?php /**************************WIDGET END*********/?>

    You can customize the names (the Pager_ss is later used for styling, and 'Pager' is going to be shown on your appearance->widget menu.

    2. Ok, now you've added a place for a custom widget space, goto your stylesheet (style.css) and change the width/height of the widget space.
    eg:

    #Pager_ss {
    clear: both;
    width: 600px;
    height: 250px;
    }

    Okie dokie, now you are done with the css.

    3. If you want to show the slideshow ONLY on the front page, install the plugin, "widget logic"
    It's a simple plugin that lets you add a boolean command and it automatically checks whether the widget should be displayed or not.

    4. Goto appearance -> widgets menu, and voila you'll see the "Pager" place on the right side.
    Just drag your anyfeedslideshow widget into that place.
    Below the "Show/Hide advanced options" you will see a text box with "Widget logic" beside it. Put "is_home()" or "is_page('[your desired page]')" in here to display your slideshow accordingly. (you can read more about the logic commands on their plugin website)

    5. click on that advanced menu of anyfeedslideshow and adjust your width and height. (eg: 600x240)

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask me. If I'm not busy studying (yes, I'm 17.), I'll try to help you. :)

    kgss-dev,

    Thank you for your reply! I only just read it.

    I will have to spend some time figuring out your instructions! I am such a baby when it comes to code.

    I managed to find the perfect plugin for what I needed - Portfolio Slideshow. It is super simple and just what I needed. You can see it here - http://www.pedalpowergeneration.ca/about/
