Genesis Slider

Description

This plugin allows you to create a simple slider that displays the featured image, along with the title and excerpt from each post.

It includes options for auto-progress and the dimensions of your slideshow. It also allows you to choose to display posts or pages, what category to pull from, and even the specific post IDs of the posts you want to display. Finally, you can place the slider into a widget area.

Note: This plugin only supports Genesis child themes.

Child Theme Integration

To adjust the slider defaults for a child theme use a filter simiar to the following:

add_filter( 'genesis_slider_settings_defaults', 'my_child_theme_slider_defaults' );

function my_child_theme_slider_defaults( $defaults ) {
    $defaults = array(
        'post_type' => 'post',
        'posts_term' => '',
        'exclude_terms' => '',
        'include_exclude' => '',
        'post_id' => '',
        'posts_num' => 5,
        'posts_offset' => 0,
        'orderby' => 'date',
        'slideshow_timer' => 4000,
        'slideshow_delay' => 800,
        'slideshow_arrows' => 1,
        'slideshow_height' => 400,
        'slideshow_width' => 870,
        'slideshow_excerpt_content' => 'excerpts',
        'slideshow_excerpt_content_limit' => 150,
        'slideshow_more_text' => __( '[Continue Reading]', 'genesis-slider' ),
        'slideshow_excerpt_show' => 1,
        'slideshow_excerpt_width' => 500,
        'location_vertical' => 'bottom',
        'location_horizontal' => 'right'
    );
    return $defaults;
}

Incredibly complicated

Never managed to get the slider to work. Spent days examining, reading about and then implementing. Nada. Far too complicated for 'normal' WP users.
