Posts Slideshow Widget

Description

This plugin enables you to have a side bar widget with slider (slideshow) of featured images from recent posts (custom post type),
from a selected category (hierarchical taxonomy), from comma separated list of tags. If post has no featured image, plugin tries
to extract any 1st image from that post content. Customize post title and background color, background color of slider navigation panel.
Color is selected from WordPress built-in color pallete. Manual input is available also. Select animation type: slide or fade.
Setup slider speed and widget dimensions. You can have as many sliders as you wish with different categories.
This is mainly useful if you have a dedicated category for photo gallery posts and would like to display recent post title with its featured photo.

Abandoned plugin

I inherited a site that uses this plugin, and the forward and back buttons on the slideshow have a layout issue and so I consider this plugin broken at this point. It doesn’t cause any bugs and the general functionality is still good. It’s a shame.
