Slideshow in widget that shows pictures from current post? (3 posts)

    Hi, I'm looking to have a slideshow with a thumbnail bar at the bottom (similar to the Photo Galleria plugin) displayed in a widget in the header, or just put a slideshow in the header (if that's possible?).
    I'm planning to show this only on actual posts (single.php template file?) and I would like the slideshow to show all the pictures from the gallery of the current/active/showing post ONLY.
    I don't mind if it uses the default WP gallery or NextGEN or some other kind, but I don't want the pictures to be viewable in the actual post/blogroll section, JUST in the slideshow.

    One way I've already found to do this is to use the NextGEN slideshow widget and then use the TS Custom Widgets plugin to apply the right widget to the right post, however, this seems like a really laborious way to do it because I'll have to create a new widget and assignment every time I write a post. And if I end up with thousands of posts, this will be a nightmare to manage!

    Thanks in advance for your help,
    Mark

    Hi again,

    I was just wondering if there are any clever people out there who missed my question the first time around? It's been 3 days now and i'm pretty desperate for an answer to this. If it can't be done, i'm thinking about trying out Joomla as an alternative, but I really don't want to!

    Absolutely agree with you! Looking for plugin that could show images from current post in the sidebar... and got nothing.
