This plugin allows you to create a Mac-like Dock menu with post thumbnail links or an image gallery in any post or page, using a simple shortcode.
The Dock - as anyone familiar with a Mac knows - is a set of icons that expand when rolled over with the cursor. This plugin mimics that behavior with WordPress post thumbnails, creating a visually-stunning set of links to other blog posts on any post or page. New in version 2.0, it can also be used to create an image gallery!
jqDock Post Thumbs can be used to display posts, pages, or custom post types, provided post thumbnails are enabled in the current theme. It can also be used to display images attached to the current post, or by post ID.
