Cool slideshow for posts and pages, with different themes to choose from + Widget. Settings and documentation are under Plugin -> iSlidex. Official
However you can still use
islidex_thumb with the full link to the image, to achieve the same purpose and to keep retrocompatibility.
Yes, using the custom iSlidex function (read above).
There could be 4 likely reasons:
* The images in your post are taken from another website, and in that case the script TimThumb that resizes and caches images for iSlidex will NOT render them (resulting in a red error cross or empty space) to prevent bandwith theft
* You did not upload that image from that post, but you are relinking it from another post. iSlidex specifically retrieves images that are attached/uploaded directly to/from a post, and not linked from somewhere else
* Make sure that the
cache folder in islidex->js plugin folder is writable, in case you are not sure set the
cache folder to permission 777
* Another plugin is messing with jQuery, try to deactivate your plugin one by one to see which one is causing the issue (Lightview gives a known conflict).
To make sure of this, please deactivate all plugins but iSlidex, flush the cache and reload the page, if you can see iSlidex now, please try to figure out which plugin is causing the issue and contact the author. We made iSlidex in a way so that it loads scripts ONLY when strictly needed, which is in the page/post it's actually used, so that it wouldn't conflict with other plugins, but of course if other authors have not done the same, or if you need two plugins to co-exist in the same page and they conflict, you will need to fix the specific issue on your own.
If it's caused by the CSS, you can upload your own
islidex.css in your template folder, which will override all of iSlidex CSSs with your custom one.
Check your style.css and see if maybe the general rules for
li are not messing up the ones for iSlidex. It shouldn't happen after v.1.6, but if it does, please report it in the forum. Always bear in mind that some themes for WordPress might affect iSlidex look, as well as other plugins you may have installed and that's not something we can control or offer free support for.
Yes, you can have MAX 1 of each possible setups (standard, widget, custom), in the same page (so max 3 iSlidex per page, regardless the theme). You can't have 2 custom iSlidex in the same page, or 2 standard ones, or 2 widgets.
Because it requires more space than what you set in the options, to be visualized properly, and usually widgets don't have that much space availability, therefore Piecemaker is disabled for widgets.
For now, the custom iSlidex will follow the standard one for what concernes effects, caption selection and linked slides options. The reason is simple, this is a free plugin and we only have limited time to work on it. In the next releases we might add more options. However, not all options will be available, as for some themes this would require too many params in the shortcode/function, making it all quite complex for users to setup.
You can either edit the file inside the plugin folder /themes/piecemaker/islidex_piecemaker.css or upload your own islidex.css to your wordpress template folder.
