Cool slideshow for posts and pages, with different themes to choose from + Widget. Settings and documentation are under Plugin -> iSlidex. Official

  1. Upload the folder islidex to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  3. Set up the slider and widget through the iSlides settings page, that you can reach through the left 'Plugin' box

Posts & Pages

Copy and paste one of these codes inside your posts/pages, to display the slideshow:

  • [islidex] (it will show on top of the post content)
  • <?php show_islidex(); ?> inside your template

Custom different slideshows

This function lets you add as many iSlidex as you want across your site, all with different settings, indipendent from this page settings or other iSlidex in your site.

Please remember that you can have max 3 iSlidex in the same page, but they can't be of the same type (eg. you can have 1 Nivo widget + 1 Nivo standard + 1 custom Nivo, but you can't have 2 custom Nivos or 2 standard Apple or 2 widgets with same style).

Copy and paste [islidex_custom cat=5 num=3 w=450 h=200 theme=1] in your posts or pages. Remember to change the numbers depending on the values you prefer. If you want to use it directly in the template code, use <?php show_customislidex(5,3,450,200,1);?>.

The numbers 5, 3, 450, 200, 1 are only an example here, you must change them depending on the values you prefer. These numbers represent, in order: category (where to get the posts from), max number of posts/slides (to show in iSlidex), width (of the slider), height (of the slider), theme (1 is Apple, 2 is Nivo, 3 is Piecemaker, 4 is Timeline). Please replace the numbers with the settings you prefer, each time you want to add a new slider in a different location. The paramater cat= can take also multiple categories, separated by comma. Just type for example cat=3,5.

Set specific slide/thumb image

If for some posts with several images, you want to set a specific image and/or thumb, add these custom fields: islidex_slide and islidex_thumb as the Field Name, and paste the image link as the Field Value.

Custom CSS

If you want to change the look and feel of the themes, feel free to do it by uploading a file named islidex.css inside your template folder. You may want to add !important in your CSS statements, as the pre-compiled CSS in iSlidex could override your custom ones sometimes.


Please bare in mind that this is a free plugin, that the time to work on it is limited and that we do our best anyway to give everybody a cool free plugin. We can't always add new features to the standard, custom and widget features of iSlidex altogether, sometimes we will have to improve only one of them or maybe two, and finish up in the next release. We prefer to push small but important little updates and fixes rather than making you wait months for the smallest improvement. So if something doesn't work as you expected (eg. the custom iSlidex doesn't still support the Greek theme) please don't be upset or report the plugin as broken, either use another theme, or wait for an update or use another plugin. Thanks for understanding.
