    First of all, I want to thank you for this plugin as it is the answer to all my fruitless searches until now. All I wanted was an image slider with options to link anywhere - Not to individual posts, but to my category pages which work as galleries for me. So this is JUST the thing. I have 2 questions:
    1. I am able to add images, no problem. But there is nowhere to delete an image (sometimes I change my mind, yknow?) and the only way to do so is to deactivate then reactivate the plugin. Is there a simpler way?
    2. The CSS extents the #jfcg wrapper 150px to the left of the image and the #jfcg div (I think that's the correct selector - I'm not at home with my local dev right now) 150 pixels to the right. Are these necessary built in buffer zones? I'll leave them if they're needed for scroll allowance. Just wanted to check with the builder first. Thanks again.

    Hmm, problems like these are one of the reasons I published this plugin. I will get them fixed as soon as I can.

    I could not find a good way to delete the actual image files. You can click on the cross icon on the gallery to delete a 'slide' however the image remains on the server. You could delete it by ftp but really it should be deleted when you delete the 'slide'. I need suggestions, on Apache I can use unlink in php but if people are using IIS, this fails and I have had problems with using system("del file"); recently as well. Any suggestions?

    As for the CSS, I think this is just left over from when I created the plugin for a specific situation. I will have to think about what CSS should be included with the plugin and what should be left up to the user.

    I'm on a train right now so I won't be doing this at the moment. In fact I've got loads of stuff to do which makes money so unfortunately this will be left in the background for a short while. Of course, if someone wants to do the work for me... :)

    I used what little knowledge I have to hunt around a bit, maybe try to intuit the solution. But I know just enough to be dangerous and not a bit more. I appreciate your reply though. I mainly wanted to know if the CSS positioning was crucial or if I could make changes without borking the whole affair. Really, you've done a service just by putting this thing together. But if any future development occur, please keep me posted.

    I have updated the plugin so that any unnecessary CSS has been removed from the plugin css file. In the future I need to find a way to include the CSS file BEFORE the template CSS file has been added. This way you could override all the plugin's CSS without having problems when upgrading. This is how it should be I think.

    Hello there,
    First off, thanks for the great plugin! I absolutely love it.
    My question is though, is there any way to have more than one instance of the plugin working on the same site? i.e. to have more than one featured content gallery using different images on different pages of the site?
    Thanks so much,
    Aaron

    Instructions are in the readme.txt file and also in Settings -> Featured Content Options. You can also find these (basic) instructions at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/jquery-featured-content-gallery/installation/

    As for 2 instances, not possible to have 2 on 1 page at the moment but it wouldn't be too hard to implement, I'll look into it when I get the chance, just a bit busy at the moment.

    Hi there

    I didn't mean 2 instances on 1 page, I mean 2 instances on different pages of a WP site.

    Let me know if this is possible, I would highly appreciate it.

    Thanks so much for the great plugin!
    Aaron

    It's something I will look into definitely, the only concern I have is that I once installed a gallery plugin where you could have multiple 'galleries' but the thing was a nightmare to administer. I've just found out that my plugin is used on http://dickeklund.com/ :) and the web designer wrote a blog entry about it saying how easy it was to use. I don't want to spoil that so I need to think up a way to have multiple galleries but retaining the simplicity of the admin interface. Any ideas would of course be greatly appreciated!
