Any slideshow plugins?
Just wondering if there were any cool slideshow plugsins for WordPress like this one I found for joomla:
If not, somebody should definitly make one!
Actually, JoomlaWorks does have a non-joomla version available, which can easily be integrated on WordPress, simply by including one line of code in your template.
This website http://www.shaydoron.net is based on WordPress and uses the “Frontpage Slideshow” by JoomlaWorks.
How much is the plugin?
If I would use it for 2 websites, would I have to buy 2 licences… or is it enough to buy it the one time?
Does it require heavy code in my template… is it easily changed?
I’m especially fond of the look of the extension in this page… http://sbs.is
I guess its kids play with css to make it look like this?
http://sbs.is/ is using “Frontpage Slideshow”, actually (JJ Rasper template on) 🙂
For more info, please visit http://www.joomlaworks.gr.
The “Frontpage Slideshow” is entirely dependant on CSS and supports templates (6 included already). So you can easily style it the way you want. See the examples mentioned on http://www.joomlaworks.gr.
ROK, I got the plugin Lightweight as pointed in your comment above… but there is no readme information available… I’ve installed the plugin but have no clue on how to use it!
This is an excellent suggestion and what I have been needing for a project I’m on. Since this pluggin is not free and for joomla, can you elabab a tiny bit on the line of code needed to make it work in WP?
Sure! Once you purchase the pack, upload everything to the root of your wordpress site. Then take a single line of code (a php include) and insert it in your WordPress template. Go to your WordPress home page and you see a demo slideshow. Now all you need to do is just insert text, links and images to a commented html file. That’s it.
Since we’ve had recently quite many WordPress users buying Frontpage Slideshow (FPSS) and successfully integrating it to WP, we’ve already started development and will release in September a standalone version which utilizes a backend to create multiple slideshows and insert them into your site without playing around with HTML anymore. This will make it easier to use FPSS in other CMS/Forum scripts (e.g. Drupal, XOOPS, vBulletin etc.) as well -besides WP- or even plain static websites. All existing FPSS customers will get this updated version for free, as we’ve already done so far. 😉
@joomlaworks — do you have the standalone version for WordPress ready yet? I can see the static version on your site, but it appears to involve editing the html file.
Im using this for my wordpress site, but unfortunately it interfers with ajax tabs so they dont work. If you know of a solution, please let me know
The new version of Frontpage Slideshow has introduced 2 new slideshow engines to avoid such conflicts, plus new templates and a new easier way to admin your slides’ content. You may check out the official website at http://www.frontpageslideshow.net or see the WordPress demo we’ve prepared on http://www.frontpageslideshow.net/demos/wordpress.
The standalone version (v2.0) is coming in June 2008 and if all goes well, a native WordPress version will be out within the summer. 😉
hey, can anyone help me out with a frontpage slideshow problem?
i keep getting the message:
Warning: main(/fpss/mod_fpslideshow.php) [function.main]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/htdocs/wordpress/wp-content/themes/ecc/index.php on line 5
Warning: main() [function.include]: Failed opening ‘/fpss/mod_fpslideshow.php’ for inclusion (include_path=’.:/Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/lib/php/:/Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/lib/php/pear/’) in /Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/htdocs/wordpress/wp-content/themes/ecc/index.php on line 5
my code looks like this…
<?php include(“/fpss/mod_fpslideshow.php”); ?>
i have the ‘fpss’ in the root of wordpress like so…
if anynoe has a solution that would be amazing!
Well, the key phrase (I think) seems to be
No such file or directory
which suggests that the path that you’ve used
<?php include(“/fpss/mod_fpslideshow.php”); ?>
isn’t correct. Maybe try without the first slash (/)?
hey mosey, thanks for your reply i noticed that after posting. i’ve got new errors tho…
Warning: main() [function.main]: php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: nodename nor servname provided, or not known in /Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/htdocs/wordpress/wp-content/themes/ecc/index.php on line 5
