Wordpress plugin for making slideshows and galleries with simple ajax admin.

After trying a plethora of gallery management plugins, I didn't find one that I would want to provide for my clients. Up 'til now, I would use a plugin for home page sliders, a different plugin for a gallery widget, and a different one for galleries and slideshows embedded into posts.

Sliderly is my opinion of how galleries should be managed, whether they're for a slideshow or gallery.

How easy is it? Click on the Slideshows tab, upload your images via the core WP Media Gallery, and Drag-and-Drop your images to re-order them. Show them on your site with a shortcode or a widget.

In the front end of things, I chose to go with Slides and Colorbox because they're awesome, flexible, and reliable.

It comes with:

  • Quick edit access via a menu item.
  • Simple shortcode for slideshow or gallery.
  • [sliderly id=123 type=gallery]
  • Slideshows must declare their width and height [sliderly id=123 type=slideshow width=500 height=100].
  • To force links to open in colorbox (a pop-off-the-page image viewer), set colorbox to true [sliderly id=123 type=gallery colorbox=true].
  • Widget with intuitive interface for selecting gallery and type.
  • Hard-codable into a template via <?php echo do_shortcode('[sliderly id=88 type=slideshow]'); ?>.

For those developers out there,the javascript is found at js.php. With a little magic, you can leverage the backend of Sliderly with your own custom plugin.

In the back end of things, it creates a custom post type called slideshow and just stuffs a hash of info into the post's content.
