The SDAC Post Slideshows plugin allows you to easily add customizable slideshows into your posts using jQuery Cycle.
- Unzip into your
/wp-content/plugins/directory. If you’re uploading it make sure to upload
the top-level folder. Don’t just upload all the php files and put them in
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Create a new post or page, fill in the “Post Slideshow” fields, and add the slideshow to your content using the [post-slideshow] shortcode.
- I do not see the button to add this into the content. Where is it?
Click on the HTML tab in the editor and you will see it.
- Where can I get support for this plugin?
You can submit any issues/feedback: http://sandboxdev.com/forums/forum/sdac-post-slideshows
- Do all slideshows have the same width/height?
No. You can easily change the size of your slideshow for each post by adjusting the general settings within the post.
- How many slides can we have?
As many as you want – just add more as needed.
- Can I use just images in the slideshow or just text?
Yes – just fill in the information you need when creating a slide and set the appropriate widths in the general settings.
- How can I use this within my WordPress template?
You can use the WordPress function do_shortcode([post_slideshow post_id=”1″]) (Post ID is the ID of the post you want to use)
