JSJ Gallery Slideshow

Description

JSJ Gallery Slideshow immediately improves all your WordPress galleries, with simple, elegant and easy-to-use slideshows. It does this completely automatically (really, it’s that simple!). You only have to install the plugin and all your slideshows will be automatically converted to something like this.

Themes

Since version 2.0.0., you can now change between different themes, including ‘Classic’, ‘Classic with Captions’ and premium themes (More to come soon!). Themes make JSJ Gallery Slideshow the perfect plugin for total beginners (plug-and-play and no configuration), as well as for advanced Front-End developers who want to create their own pixel-perfect themes (Hooks for registering plugins!).

Options

You can change the way the slideshow is displayed through changing settings such as speed, transition effect and timeout between transition.

The plugin is based on the excellent Jquery Cycle 2, one of the best jQuery slideshow plugins out there.

Reviews

Simple and quick

Most plugins want you to make an individual slider in the settings and then insert the shortcode, but I was looking for something that would take the uploaded images to that page (from the default WordPress gallery) and make a quick and simple slideshow. Not many downloads or reviews, but trust me this will save you time and headache!
Works great on mobile too, it’s very light.
