Content Slideshow

Creates an automatic slideshow that randomly cycles through all of your site's image content. Includes full-screen, widget, and shortcode version

This plugin creates a fullscreen slideshow that displays randomly-selected pictures from your media library. Designed to display pictures related to your business/organization in the background at an event or in your office, there is no need to configure any settings or controls. Image captions/descriptions are automatically displayed as well.

Once activated, you can view the slideshow by visiting http://yourdomain.com/slideshow. All JPEG images will be displayed (since .jpg is best for pictures, while .png and .gif are typically used for graphics).

Please note that it is not currently possible to pause the slideshow or go back; the slideshow is not designed for personal viewing. However, clicking/tapping on the image will open its attachment page in a new tab, allowing images to be contextualized or edited easily.

The slideshow can also be embedded into your site via a widget or a shortcode.

You can control some options by adjusting the url of the slideshow. Parameters are controlled via query string (and widget options and shortcode attributes).

  • size is the size of the image to load, either thumbnail (discouraged), medium, large, full, or auto, which uses medium or large depending on wp_is_mobile().
  • year is the 4-digit numeric year in which the images were published.
  • month is the numeric month in which the images were published (between 1 and 12), typically but not necessarily used in conjunction with year.

Using all options, for example: http://example.com/slideshow?size=full&year=2014&month=4
