Slides is a slideshow plugin for jQuery that is built with simplicity in mind.

It does not modify any other images or galleries.

Release Page: Slides Plugin Homepage
Live Demo: Slides Demonstration

Only standard version is included in the current release.

After installing the plugin just write something like:

[slidesslide linkurl="LinkURL" linktitle="LinkTitle" imgurl="FullPathOfImage" imgalt="ImgAlt"]

Where [slides] and [/slides] are the beginning and ending of Slides slider respectively, keep on adding as many [slidesslide linkurl="LinkURL" linktitle="LinkTitle" imgurl="FullPathOfImage" imgalt="ImgAlt"] for as many slides you want.

To implement directly in theme files, use:

<div id="slides">
    <div class="slides_container">
        <a href="LinkURL" title="LinkTitle" target="_blank"><img src="FullPathOfImage" width="570" height="270" alt="ImgAlt"></a>
    <a href="#" class="prev"><img src="PathOf-arrow-prev.png-image" width="24" height="43" alt="Arrow Prev"></a>
    <a href="#" class="next"><img src="PathOf-arrow-next.png-image" width="24" height="43" alt="Arrow Next"></a>

Slides is originally by Nathan Searles.

You can customize these in the Settings section:

  • Preload images in an image based slideshow.
  • Autoplay slideshow and duration.
  • Pause slideshow on click of next/prev or pagination and time of pause.
