Rotating Image Widget

Create a jQuery-driven rotating image sidebar widget.

How many of these widgets can I have on a page?

The widget itself will allow for multiple instances in a sidebar, but we recommend you stick to just one. Each widget will pull images from the same location, so having multiple widgets running at once doesn't give you anthing extra. However, if you have multiple sidebars, feel free to use a widget in each in different locations.

I use large images on my site that won't fit in the sidebar ...

That's fine. The widget will automatically re-size the images to fit inside your sidebar. This way the user's browser isn't forced to download multiple large images.

Why do I see a page with a red crack in it rather than my photo?

The file handler can only downsample images that are 2MB in size or smaller. Images larger than this size will be skipped and replaced by a "broken image" placeholder. By default, we try to use the "large" image size as defined by WordPress. If you think something has gone wrong, please contact us immediately.

Why does the plug-in not activate when I install it?

Rotating Image Widget requires a few particular elements on your site. If you're using an older version of WordPress (less than 2.8) it won't install. Since the plug-in requires some advanced functions available only in PHP 5 or higher, activation will fail for users running a lower version.

If you feel your system meets all of these requirements, please contact us and we'll double check your system and provide a work-around.
