WP-jqPuzzle

Description

Create sliding puzzles for your web page. WP-jqPuzzle will automatically turn your images into a full-blown sliding puzzle.
To use it, just put [jqpuzzle img=http://www.mysite.com/mypicture.jpg] in a post, updating the path for the image, of course.
Other options are available. This WordPress plugin is based on the jqPuzzle script by Ralf Stoltze.

  4. Place [jqpuzzle img=http://www.mysite.com/mypicture.jpg] in your templates, see more options at Usage

Usage

With the right using of shortcodes you have many options:
[jqpuzzle] shows default image with default values
[jqpuzzle img=http://………….] shows your image
[jqpuzzle img=http://…………. cols=3 rows=3] shows your image an your numbers of cols and rows
[jqpuzzle img=http://…………. mix=’Mix!’ image=’Image’ message=’Hey! You are cool, man! You did the puzzle in || clicks, in just || seconds!’] shows your image with settings in your languages, only when localisation not supported
You must know that the two vertical lines || mean the number of clicks or of the seconds.

Here are the default values:
extract(shortcode_atts(array(
‘img’=>’http://www.mysite.com/…/plugins/wp-jqpuzzle/img/default-picture.jpg’,
‘cols’=>4,’rows’=>4,’mix’=>’Mix!’,’image’=>’Image’,’numbers’=>’Numbers’,
‘reallymix’=>’Really mix?’,’moves’=>’moves’,’seconds’=>’seconds’,
‘message’=>’Great! You resolved the puzzle with || moves, in || seconds.’),
$atts));
