A minimalist slideshow plugin that creates a new gallery post type. Add slideshows to widgets, posts, pages and gallery posts.
Activate the plugin and follow the prompts for configuring the plugin and updating your permalinks. Visiting the permalinks page registers the new Gallery post type. Next, visit the Gallery -> Add New page located in the left menu column, give your Gallery a title, use the Upload button to add images, click Save and Exit the Upload box. When you Save of Preview the Gallery, your thumbnail images will appear below the Upload button.
You can add specific Galleries or Gallery Collections to your Menus using the Appearance -> Menu settings. If the options don't appear on the screen at first, use the Screen Options tab in the upper right of the page to make them available.
Always assign a Featured Image for each Gallery. This Featured Image will become the image that represents the Gallery on the Archive page.
This plugin requires WordPress 3.1 and works best with a Graph Paper Press theme.
The theme files packaged with this plugin use fluid css widths to integrate as best as possible with a wide variety of themes. We do make some initial suggestions for image widths when adding new posts, but ultimately you must determine the best image sizes that fit your theme best. This plugin doesn't resize any images you add; It merely displays whatever size images you add to it.
This plugin contains two pre-built template files:
These template file are located in the plugin's theme folder. Feel free to customize, if you know a bit of html and css. Be sure to backup the original plugin theme before customizing. If you do customize either the css or the template files, your modifications will be lost when you upgrade this plugin. Always backup your modifications before updating.
The default stylesheet (/css/style.css) uses fluid css widths to integrate as best as possible with a wide variety of themes. We have packaged a fluid 12-column grid framework in this plugin. It is best to add your custom css styles to your theme's style.css file and leave the default styles in this plugin alone. If you do customize either the css or the template files, your modifications will be lost when you upgrade this plugin. Always backup your modifications before updating.
