WP Vegas

A fullscreen background slideshow plugin

Version 2.1

  • Added 'random' attribute to make slideshows display slides in a random order
  • Added random attribute to shortcode generator
  • Added minor cursor hover effect over thumbnails

Version 2.0

  • Added a custom shortcode column to the custom post type for ease of use
  • Added a Help link on the plugins page to direct those who need help to some documentation
  • Added a shortcode generator on the Add New/Edit Slideshow pages to help simplify that process
  • Added support for adding images from the media library
  • Added an ABSPATH check as an added security measure
  • Completely redid how images are uploaded and saved
  • Fixed default values not working for the shortcode
  • Minified css and js
  • Rebranded the plugin to WP Vegas because it's simpler and I like it better
  • Refactored how the plugin outputs code which is now much cleaner
  • Refacted the readme.txt so it might actually be useful to someone
  • Refactored the whole plugin into a class with methods
  • Removed global option to add the slideshow to all pages because it seemed superfluous (can be done with do_shortcode)
  • Removed unnecessary options and functions
  • Removed title attribute
  • Sanatize image IDs before they're saved
  • Updated vegas.js to the latest version (version 1.3.4)

Versions 1.0 - 1.5

  • I was a slacker and didn't keep track.
