    Hey Josh,

    First of all, thanks for this awesome plugin. It's absolutely fantastic. Easy to use, lightweight and generally just kickass.

    There are a couple of cool improvements that would be great - although I'm aware that you're trying to keep this as simple as possible.

    1) A text option would be nice, with the title on a transparent background at the bottom. I know it can be customized to do this, but a native option would have been nice.

    2) The pagination is left aligned and it would have been nice if it was centered by default. Once again I haven't tried yet, but I bet there is a way to fix this via customization. :)

    3) Potentially messier and it might defy the purpose of this lightweight slider, but a thumbnail image of the slides would have been great. With a bit of hacking I'm sure this can also be customized though!

    Thanks again for the great plugin bud.

    P.S. When you're not making great WP plugins, you should consider a career as a Penn Jillette double. I love that guy!

    Thanks for your feedback Mike!

    It is possible to add thumbnail navigation, I've done it on a few different projects. I'd like to make it easier for users to add other features like captions or thumbnails without making things too complicated, I'll have to see what I can come up with.

    Originally the paged navigation was centered, but this is tricky because they are positioned absolutely so I have to set a specific position, can't set auto margins or anything. So it would be centered for say five slides, but look funny for more or less slides. To accommodate large and small slideshows left or right aligned works better, but for individual projects where you know the number of slides it is easy to center.

    Ha, I think I'd need a lot of coffee to stand in for Penn, but it'd be fun to try!
