Image Rotator Widget

A sidebar widget for rotating and displaying images in your sidebar, allowing you to loop, set the speed, target a new window if linked, and even rand

A widgetized plugin that puts an image rotator on your theme in any sidebar. You can choose from three different transitions: linear, loop, and fade. In the widget settings you have the ability to set the transition speed, apply nofollow if linked, open links in a new window, upload/select images to add to the Image Rotator, and to drag & drop to reorder the order you want the images to appear. Or you can set randomize and each time the widget loads it will start with a random image and work its way through your array. Watch the video below for a short demonstration of workflow.

Features include:

  • Uses the WordPress Media Uploader to upload or select images
  • Options to make the image link to another page and even in a new window
  • Choose from three different smooth transitions
  • Set the transition speed
  • Drag & drop to order the images or set to random to have them loaded in a different order each time
  • Apply rel=“nofollow” for search engine optimization
  • Use the Image Rotator Widget multiple times on the same page
  • Works with modern versions of Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Internet Explorer
  • Includes jQuery.qtip and jQuery.imagesLoaded


The Image Rotator Widget was originally developed by Stephen Coley for DK New Media, the makers of CircuPress, a newsletter plugin for WordPress, and publishers of the Marketing Technology Blog.
