Description

Add content slides with a simple shortcode “[cSlider]” and divide all slides with “[slide]”. Close the shortcode after all slides with “[/cSlider]”.
Change your default settings in the admin panel.

Overwrite the defaults for each cSlider with these shortcode attributes:

  1. width (in px)
  2. mode {horizontal, vertical, fade}
  3. speed (in ms)
  4. infititeLoop {true, false}
  5. controls {true, false}
  6. startingSlide (index of the first slide to appear)
  7. randomStart {true, false} (whether the first slide to appear is random)
  8. auto {true, false} (automated sliding)
  9. pause (in ms) (pause between auto slides)
  10. autoDirection {next, prev} (direction of auto slides)
  11. autoHover {true, false} (stop auto slides on mouseover)
  12. pager {true, false} (show the page navigation)
  13. pagerLocation {bottom, top}
  14. ticker {true, false} (slide continuously)
  15. tickerDirection {next, rev} (direction of ticker)
  16. tickerHover {true, false} (stop ticker slides on mouseover)
  17. easing (see http://gsgd.co.uk/sandbox/jquery/easing/ for easing options)
