Add animated slideshows of your featured pages and posts.

D13Slideshow is a plugin that will create an animated promo slideshow as part of your WordPress blog. You can use it to promote any pages or posts in your site and it is fully customisable through the admin pages of your blog. Unlike some other slideshow components, D13Slideshow makes use of the script.aculo.us and Prototype JavaScript frameworks.

Once added, your slideshow will animate through each of your chosen features providing an image, an extract and a link. Once all featured stories have been shown, the slideshow will pause and provide 'next' and 'back' buttons allowing visitors to cycle through them.
