IvyCat AJAX Image Slider

Simple image slider that uses AJAX to load and switch images.

This plugin is a lightweight template/framework for developers to easily add a powerful AJAX image slider to a page.


  • Use simple shortcodes to add a slider to a page.
  • Create multiple slider groups.
  • Supports one slider per page.
  • The first slide loads when the page loads and the rest are pulled in via AJAX, speeding up initial page load.
  • Uses a custom post type for the slides making it easy for you, or customers, to add new slides and groups.
  • Uses the featured image of the slide's post.
  • You create the slide order.
  • Change slide speed, fadeIn/fadeOut durations, remove base styles, and even remove next/previous arrows and slide button icons

Plugin depends upon your theme's style and does not contain native styles.

This is a minimal plugin, function over form. If you would like to extend it, or would like us to extend it in later versions, feel free to post ideas in this plugin's support forum, or contact us.
