[Plugin: AnythingSlider for WordPress] post-thumbnails

  • Very good plugin. Thank your for it. But maybe these suggestions can help to make it better.

    01. You added theme support for Post Thumbnails

    // Add theme support for Post Thumbnails
    add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );
    if ( function_exists( 'add_image_size' ) ) {
    	add_image_size( 'jtd_anythingslide_thumb', 960, 280, true );
    }

    But you did not add this functionality to your post type… Why?

    02. Also, there is no option to output the title, the excerpt (and thumbnails), but it is very important if you want to slide content, not just images. And it is easy to implement these features (I did it by changing a bit the core code of plugin, but people “like options”)

    03. Also, there are some small problems with AnySlider css (even on official AnySlider page) and Opera 10.xx, IE 7-8. The problem – all images “blink” for a moment and arrange one after another. I fixed it with something like that (but it is very specific case, because I output thumbnails and title and so on)

    .anythingSlider {
    	height: 103px;
    	overflow: hidden;
    }
    .content.clearfix {
    	width: 610px;
    	height: 103px;
    }

    Hey kg69design,

    1. This is legacy code that I never deleted. I should go about deleting it one of these days 🙂

    2. Because some people use just an image as a slide, I only output the content box in the slideshow. You’ll need to add the title/text into the content area and style it appropriately in your stylesheet.

    3. I’ll take a look at the IE stylesheet. I need to update the plugin source to the latest jQuery plugin code, which will probably fix most of these issues.

    Ok. Thanks for reply.

    Hey Jacob,

    I agree its a shame we can’t use the post thumbnail system with the anythingslider custom post type. It would be great to generate images for the navigation tabs.

    Best,
    C.
