Folder Slider

This plugin generates picture sliders from a folder using a shortcode.

This plugin creates picture sliders (slideshows) from a folder. The pictures folder must be uploaded (using FTP) somewhere on the server (e.g. wp-content/upload).

To include a slider in a post or a page, you have to use the following shortcode :

[folderslider folder="local_path_to_folder"]

An Options page allow to set the default paramaters of the sliders :

  • Transition Mode (mode): horizontal, vertical, fade
  • Caption Format (captions): none, filename, filenamewithoutextension, smartfilename (filename with underscores, extension and front numbers removed)
  • CSS (css): change the frame around slider: 'noborder', 'shadow', 'shadownoborder', 'black-border', 'white-border', 'gray-border'
  • Width and Height of the slider (width and height)
  • Speed (speed): time between slides in seconds
  • Previous/Next Buttons (controls): true or false
  • Play/Pause Button (playcontrol): true or false
  • Start Slider Automatically (autostart): true or false
  • Pager (pager): true or false

Default slider width is 100% unless the attribute width is set to a non-zero value. The height is calculate for each picture (to keep ratio) unless the attribute height is set to a non-zero value.

Most of theses settings can be overridden using the corresponding shortcode attribute:

[folderslider folder="wp-content/upload/MyPictures" width=500 
    mode=fade speed=2.5 captions=smartfilename controls=false css="gray-border"]
