Hi Everyone, I am attempting to create a reasonably simple plugin that uses the default WordPress gallery and adds a slideshow in addition to the thumbnails. I have almost managed to accomplish this, but am having difficulty displaying the slideshow as the images are set in the "Order images by:" part of the Gallery Settings. I have used the "gallery_shortcode" function in the media.php file as the base of the plugin, so far this has worked quite well, the thumbnails show up as they should. I have been using "wp_get_attachment_link" and "wp_get_attachment_image" to get the first image in the slideshow, but cannot seem to get the order right. The changing of the images I was going to do with jQuery, but haven't quite got there yet. There is a tutorial for this which I was hoping would be useful for that.
Does anyone know if this is possible? Or if there is another more suitable alternative to accomplish this. I am not at all an expert in creating plugins, but so many of the Gallery plugins available add unnecessary administration panels, instead of just using the gallery WordPress already has. I appreciate any input, Cheers.
