    Hey DaKlown,

    Sorry to hear you are having problems with the plugin.

    I had to make a fairly substantial change to the plugin between v0.1 and v0.2. Now, instead of using the Featured Image as the slideshow image, we’ll use the post Content. So, you now have a lot more flexibility in the content you can present in your slideshow. You can now add video, text, multiple images, etc.

    To get your images back, just insert the image into the post and everything should work.

    Sorry for the inconvenience. I won’t be breaking the plugin like this for future releases.

    Hi Jacob,

    Great plugin. Did you know about these improvements? Will they be integrated into your WP plugin?

    Oh ok I got it working again with your recommendations. Thanks for the help. Any idea why its not auto starting like it was in the past? Do i need to edit the js files?

    Hey guys,

    I’m just about to push version 0.3, which will integrate a ton more options, and fix the autoplay bug.

    Hello Jacob, thank you for making such a great plugin but for some reason, I can’t get it work. I’m unsure whether I’m missing some steps.

    1- I downloaded the plugin.
    2- I activated it
    3- I created a few slides on the admin panel.
    4- What else do I need to do to get it work?

    Hi burakb,

    Thanks for the note.

    You can view a few short screencasts here to get you started here: http://missingpiecestudios.com/

    Basically, now that you have the slides created, you need to use the [anything_slides] shortcode in a post or page, which will display a slideshow on that post or page. Have a look at the FAQ and/or those videos. Let me know if you need more details.

    Thanks for checking out the plugin!

    Jacob, thank you for the detailed information. The videos have been a great help for me. I appreciate it. I am now able to insert the slides into my pages and posts.

    I’m wondering how to make the plugin work on a custom wordpress home page.

    I wrote the codes below to make the plugin work however have been unsuccessful. Any advice from you would be great.

    Thank you for your help.

    my custom home.php code for wordpress blog.

    <?php get_header(); ?>
    
    [anything_slides]
    
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    Hey burakb,

    Glad I could help.

    To get the slideshow to work in a theme file, you can use the do_shortcode() function that I outline in the FAQ: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/anythingslider-for-wordpress/faq/

    Basically, you can do this: <?php echo do_shortcode( "[anything_slides]" ); ?>

    Also, if you have a custom homepage, you can use the front-page.php template file.

    Good luck.

    Jacob, thanks for your support and this great plugin. I managed to make it work fine. Though, please note that for some strange reason, the slides’ size (width and height) does not work fine on K2 theme. I have no idea why the K2 theme does not show the size of the slides correctly. When I change to another theme from K2, everything works perfect.

    You can get K2 theme below if you ever want to give it a test with your plugin.
    http://getk2.com/download/

    I resized the plugin to 500px x 246 px and placed pictures into the slides at the same size. I inserted the plugin into a page and a post. For some strange reason on the slides, there is a padding from left. When the next slide is on I can see a few pixels of the previous slide on the left before it appears again.

    Please let me know if you ever test this theme and find a solution to it.

    Thank you again.

    Hey burakb,

    I figured out the problem. There are a few lines of CSS in the K2 theme that mangle the slider.

    119,
    620,
    1233,
    1237

    Either commenting those lines, or hacking on the slider css will fix you up.

    Thanks for pointing this out!

    This is awesome! Thank you so much for helping me out J!

    Best wishes,

    My pleasure! Glad I could help

    Loving this plug-in! One thing that is not obvious is how to change the tab numbers to text. there has been some chatter about this for the js version, but i can’t find a solution in wordpress.

    thanks

    Hi Clyde,

    If you hop over to http://missingpiecestudios.com/, you’ll see a video titled Nav Formatting in the slideshow. In this slide, you’ll see a video. The video outlines the process for setting up your navigation formatting.

    As a quick recap, if you’re using the latest version of the plugin, you’ll see a meta box titled Navigation Formatting in the slide edit screen. Once you add the text to each slide, you can add an attribute to the shortcode for navFormat.

    Good luck!

    -Jacob

    oh that’s great! another thing that’s happening to me is that there is a horizontal offset between the slides, so the underlying slide peeks out a bit. i did see that others had this happening, but i didn’t see a solution.

    thanks

    clyde
