WunderSlider Gallery

Description

This plugin provides an automated way to convert any standard WordPress gallery that is embedded on a page using the [gallery] shortcode into a WunderSlider.

WunderSlider Gallery also supports NextGEN Gallery to embed any gallery as a WunderSlider using the [wunderslider_nggallery] shortcode or by enabling it as the default renderer for the [nggallery] shortcode.

The plugin requires the WunderSlider which is available freely for personal use and can be downloaded on the WunderSlider page.

A license is required to be purchased for commercial use, see the WunderSlider page for more details.

Usage / Notes on settings

After you have followed the instructions on installing WunderSlider and the WunderSlider Gallery plugin, go to Appearance > WunderSlider Gallery and have a look at the default settings.

 [gallery] shortcode attributes :
  • The size attribute uses full by default. Set it to another size if you don’t need the full image size.

    Default sizes are thumbnail, medium, large and full.

  • WunderSlider attributes that use a dash in the attribute name must be used with an underscore instead when passed to the [gallery] shortcode. If used, container-class, container-style, container-height and container-width must be passed as container_class, container_style, container_height and container_width to the [gallery] shortcode.
    This is especially important when the display="proportional" setting is used, as you will have to provide the container width and height explicitly.

    Example:

    [gallery display=”proportional” container_width=”80%” container_height=”360px”]

  • If you do not want the WunderSlider applied to a specific gallery, you must add the wunderslider="false" attribute, for example:

    [gallery wunderslider=”false”]

Usage with NextGEN Gallery

Any NextGEN gallery can be rendered as a WunderSlider using the [wunderslider_nggallery] shortcode or by enabling defaults for NextGEN Gallery shortcodes in the Appearance > WunderSlider Gallery settings.

Example:

  [wunderslider_nggallery id="123"] will render a WunderSlider for the NextGEN gallery with id 123.

The [nggallery] shortcode can be rendered as a WunderSlider by either enabling it by default or by specifying:

[nggallery id="123" wunderslider="true"]

For this to take effect, the option to handle NextGEN Gallery shortcodes must be enabled on the settings page Appearance > WunderSlider Gallery.

As with the [gallery] shortcode, any WunderSlider attributes can be passed to [wunderslider_nggallery] or [nggallery] – those that use a dash in the attribute name must be used with an underscore instead: container-class, container-style, container-height and container-width must be passed as container_class, container_style, container_height and container_width.

Examples:

  • [wunderslider_nggallery id="1" container_width="80%" container_height="300px" display="proportional"]
  • [nggallery id="1" wunderslider="true" container_width="80%" container_height="300px" display="proportional"]

FAQ

What is the purpose of this plugin?

This plugin provides an automated way to convert any standard WordPress gallery that is embedded on a page using the [gallery] shortcode into a WunderSlider.

This plugin requires the WunderSlider – either a free personal or a licensed commercial copy.

Installing this plugin without the WunderSlider is a bit pointless, so get yourself a copy and follow the installation instructions.

Where can I see a demo?
What’s the difference between the free personal version and the licensed commercial version?

In features, there is no difference at all.

The main difference is that you are not allowed to use the free version for commercial purposes.

Please refer to WunderSlider for details on that.

By default, the free personal version will place a small icon on pages where it is used and send usage data, if you don’t want that, you can turn these off on the Appearance > WunderSlider Gallery settings page in the admin section.
