Animated Banners

Widget and shortcode providing user-managed animated, captioned banners.

The Animated Banners plugin was developed by Acumen in order to provide an easy way to generate sharp, eye-catching banner animations based on arbitrary HTML.

Once the plugin is installed, you will have a new Admin menu called Banners, and also a new Widget shown in the Appearance > Widgets admin area, which you'll be able to drag into sidebars or include on your pages and posts as shortcodes. The banners themselves are created using the Banners area that will appear near posts and pages in the main WordPress admin menu.

We use the term Banners to describe any HTML element with animated captions overlaid. We aim to develop and build the animation options, allowing the user to manage jQuery-managed animations within the WordPress admin areas, allowing banners to technically be accessible, degradable, and ultimately internationalised using i18n .po files.
