WP Nivo Slider


This plugin creates a Slideshow/Slider with post thumbnails in your posts configured for a particular category of your wordpress. It is entirely written in jQuery (following the pattern of my other plugins).

It can be integrated anywhere on your Blog/Website. The WP Nivo Slider shows your chosen Blog Posts from a specific Category.

To use the WP Nivo Slider, you must first enter the settings Plug-in Option -> WP Nivo Slider and choose which category you want that displays the posts. Next you need to insert a post in that category you chose previously. In the post that you entered you need to choose a post thumbnails. WP Nivo Slider changes its size to be the size image that you inserted, or the size of the slider will depend on the Largest image. This plugin do not resize images.
