WP Slide-up Box

Add jQuery-driven fancy slideboxes to your WordPress pages and Posts. With this plugin a layer will slide on an inserted picture on mouse hover.


  • Fixed cover width issues in JS (sometimes it was not set properly on some servers)
  • Improved responsiveness (in the previous version there had been issues with window resizing)


  • Plugin's code was rewritten completely with more attention to quality
  • The plugin no longer creates a table in WPDB, everything can now be controlled via the shortcode or the template function's parameters (however, we kept the table reader functions for backwards compatibility)
  • Size parameter added for using other image sizes than "full"
  • The project is now on GitHub
  • Admin is now responsive
  • Front end now has better support for responsive images
  • Shortcode generator added in admin
  • everything is prefixed now correctly: the plugin is less prone to conflicts with other plugins


  • Bugfix: in 0.2 there was an error in the install process (didn't generate the neccessary database tables)


  • Now you can insert Slide-up boxes as PHP functions into your WP themes
  • New shortcode attributes introduced: class, title, desc, alt
  • If not specified, the plugin uses the cover title as the value of the image alt tag (helps you make valid and SEO-friendly code)
  • Improved documentation and FAQ
  • 4 new modes: fade-in, fade-out, top-down-full, top-down-part
  • Separated frontend and admin PHP files: this way the plugin uses a bit less memory


  • Error messages added for the 'Add new image' form
  • Some tiny bugfixes and fine-tuning in the admin panel
  • Made all plugin files' encoding UTF-8 without BOM


  • first 6 modes introduced
  • admin panel to set up slide-up boxes
  • you can use pictures of any size
