I am confused about what the WP Supersized plugin can do exactly. The description says:
Cycles Images/backgrounds via slideshow with transitions and preloading (use it as background or as slideshow)
So to me, the phrase “use it as background or as slideshow” implies that a gallery can be shown as a full-screen slideshow, covering the website under it. Do I have this wrong? If so, I think the description should read “use it as a static background image or as a slideshow playing in the background of your blog”.
I use NextGen Gallery and my posts contain thumbnails for galleries. I want a visitor to be able to click on a thumb and have it launch a full screen slideshow, just like PicLens does (the option that comes with NextGen). But PicLens does not handle HTML captions so that’s what brought me to WP Supersized. Right now all I can make it do is show a slideshow in the background behind the post, which is kind of useless when you’re trying to display a photo gallery.
So can this plugin do what I’m looking for and if so, what is the correct setting?
