Slick Slideshow

Description

Slick Slideshow is a highly customizable, but easy-to-use JQuery Slideshow Plugin, to show dynamic images or contents on your website.
Visit the Plugin Page to see it in action.

Inspired by a tutorial from sixrevisions.com, we adapted the
extended work from Blog Monnet USA. Our part was finally to create a WordPress-Plugin from that.

Features:

  • All Styles, Animation Parameters and Contents are customizable easily over the backend
  • Can use Image URLs (unexperienced users) or custom HTML (experienced Users)
  • Valid XHTML 1.0 Strict, Valid CSS 2
  • Compatibility to other JQuery WordPress Plugins (you can use a Lightbox like Colorbox for example for images in the Slideshow)
  • Fast and efficient
  • Does not require extra-tables in your database (actually this might be required one day, but currently everything works fine)
  • GPLv2 licensed as it is a requirement of the WordPress Codex (donations for the efforts and further development are fair and welcome)
  • Languages: English, German

Known issues

  • The Plugin is not tested in combination with the use of other Javascript-Frameworks than jQuery (like Prototype). There might obviously be compability issues.
