Combo Slideshow

Featuring a slideshow javascript with multiple settings and transition effects: blog highlights, post types & taxonomies, galleries, custom slides

Can I display/embed multiple instances of the slideshow gallery?

Yes, you can: summon each instance anywhere with the appropriate shortcode or manual function.

How Can I auto insert a blog posts (or custom) slideshow in my home or single post/page?

Enable it in the plugin settings and make sure that a post thumbnail is set in each post. Auto-insertion features may not work if standard functions are not supported by the theme in use or plugins such as e-commerce, etc...

How Can I insert a custom slideshow in my content?

First create a new Slideshow and add images to the media gallery. Use the shortcode or the manual function with the custom parameter set accordingly. Please note that images have to be uploaded from this screen, in order to be associated as "attachments" of the slideshow object / custom post type. The Content Editor is actually useless except for the Add Media button, or if you ever like to somehow extract it (e.g. slideshow of slideshows post type).

What if I only want captions on some of my pages

Set your default captions to off; for any slideshow you put on your page use [slideshow caption="on"]

What if my configuration isn't showing up?

You're most likely not running PHP5. Talk to your host to upgrade or switch your hosting provider. PHP5 is eleventy years old.

How do I find the numbers to exclude (or include)?

Not as easy as it used to be! Go into the Media Library. Choose an image you want to exclude and click on it and notice your address bar: "/wp-admin/media.php?action=edit&attachment_id=353". Therefore, [slideshow exclude=353]

My thumbnails aren't scrolling, what's up?

Make sure you have at least 6 thumbnails for that to work properly. Otherwise thumbnails are probably not necessary.

How do I change the color to the left and right of my images in the slideshow?

In /views/default/gallery.php find this line: slideshow.letterbox = "#000"; Change #000 to #FFF for white, or any other hex color code.

How can I achieve a liquid layout?

First of all disable the built-in width & height crop adjustment in the settings, and then simply apply the "width:100%" rule in your stylesheet using both the ".ngslideshow.nivoSlider" classes: it will override the default fixed width
