IvyCat AJAX Image Slider

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

What is the point of this plugin?

It allows you to easily create nice, JavaScript image sliders with text that can be styled to suit any project.

Some other slider plugins had more features than we needed, or didn't operate as we expected. Often, they load all the images at once, hiding the others and using JavaScript to switch the visible image.

This plugin is different; it loads a single image/post and once the page is loaded, makes an AJAX request to retrieve the rest of them. It receives them in JSON format and the individual elements are switched rather than any hiding/showing going on.

The slider looks plain in my page - can I pick from different presentations or looks?

Currently this plugin is more for developers or designers. It doesn't take much to use, but it does require you to do your own styling.

Eventually we'll incorporate templating (so you can alter the markup without fear of future versions overwriting them).

What if I don't know CSS?

Talk to your favorite WordPress designer or developer, or we can certainly work with you. Future versions of this plugin might support automatic features and other tweaks.
