Support » Plugins » Need a plugin recommendation, please

  • Hi all, need a recommendation for a plug-in … we’re looking for a visually interesting way to list a group of individuals, in a “hall of fame” type listing. For each person, there will be a photo, a name, and a brief description. We want something more interesting than just a list.

    I’ve looked at a lot of “CoverFlow” type apps, but Flash is not our strong point (and we don’t own a copy, so we’d be looking at buying Flash just to make minor modifications). I’m thinking there must be some sort of pre-existing plugin that makes for fun browsing of items within a WP page … for instance, something like Amazon’s “Today’s recommendations for you,” which has clickable arrows on the left and right side that scroll through the list of choices.

    Any inspirations? Looking forward to not re-inventing the wheel. Thanks in advance.

  • I think you might be better off trying one of the image gallery plugins with slideshow features – maybe NextGen Gallery or WP-PicLens. I haven’t tried either, but they sound promising.

    One note: I’ve noticed on the forums here that NextGen Gallery may cause conflicts with some plugins.

    I tried to install Wp PicLens, but when I try to activate the plug in it gives me the following error:

    Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_OBJECT_OPERATOR in /home/content/c/a/y/caysaltech/html/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/wp-piclens/ on line 72

    I contacted the support for piclens and they told me is needed php5, as far as I can tell I am running php5
    Any suggestions
