Site Slideshow

Description

Site Slideshow looks for pictures in all articles and pages, fetches one of them as representative of the post and gathered it into a slideshow widget. Site Slideshow is highly customizible. Klicking on the slide leads you to the post it stems from.
Site Slideshow version 2 is much more general than version 1. It finds not only images from the standard gallery but also from any image-Tag and from the New Generation Gallery if it is represented by the shortcode [nggallery id=…]. Now you can also use Slideshow Gallery plugin concurrently.
