YSlider is a content slider for WordPress inspired by the look and feel of one of the coolest widget on the home page of Yahoo!

  1. Download the archive.
  2. Use the WordPress "Add new plug-in feature" OR unzip and manually upload to your WordPress plugins directory.
  3. Check if files can be written in the /cache folder. If not so, change the folder permissions to 777.
  4. Activate the plugin from you WordPress Administration page.

When you activate the plugin a link YSlider is created in the left column of WordPress dashboard.

Once installed YSlider presents three menu items: YSlider, content and style / behaviours where it is possible to configure content and style parameters.

YSlider can be instantiated in pages with the shortcut [yslider] and can be configurated to override the default options, for example:

  • [yslider posttitle="Recent movies"] to change the slider title
  • [yslider posttitle="Recent movies" postwidth=700 postimgheight=300 postcontentheight=100] to have a slider 700px large with the main image 300px in height and the box containing the text 100px in height

All the available options:

  • posttitle="what you want" to change the title (you can use posttitle="" to remove title and subtitle)
  • postsubtitle="what you want" to change the subtitle
  • postids="45,42,39" to select the post or pages in the slider (to make it work it is necessary to add the postrecent="off" option). (to find out post or page id, go to post or page list and hover with the mouse on the post or page title: you can see the id in the link that shows in the bottom bar of the browser window)
  • postrecent="on or off" to show the last eight post or page published
  • postwidth=600 to override the default slider width
  • postimgheight=600 to override the default main image height
  • postcontentheight=200 to override the main content default height
  • postcarouselheight=600 to override the default carousel height
  • postthumbheight=600 to override the carousel default image height
  • postslideby=5 to override the number of the items for each slide
  • postspeed=1000 to override the speed of the slide (in milliseconds)
  • postinterval=2000 to override the interval between each slide when postautoplay="on" (in milliseconds)
  • postdelay=2000 to change the amount of time to add to postinterval before the slider begins the slideshow when postautoplay="on" (in milliseconds)
  • postcontinuous="on or off" to allow or not a circular navigation between items
  • postautoplay="on or off" to allow slider autoplay
