jQuery Cycle Slideshow for Simplest Gallery


Adds a new gallery style to the Simplest Gallery plugin, producing a nice full width slideshow.

The slideshow should adapt to responsive pages automatically, and it shows up quickly: as soon as the first image is loaded.

It requires the “Simplest Gallery” plugin to work.
