Feature request: shortcode to add the slideshow easier (6 posts)

    First of all, congratulations for such a great plugin. I like the setup options. It's really easy to manage it. The only thing I would like to see with the plugin is a shortcode to be able to add the slideshow within the page content, not only editing the template. Also would be really great to be able to "group" the photos in slides, so maybe one can be site wide, and other one can be smaller, to use the first one as a banner and the small one inside the content.

    Thank you!

    Great Plugin, But I've recently added to version 3.2.1.

    The problem is photos are uploaded but does not show up in the place. Neither in the plugin showcase or the template file.

    any issues ?

    i would love the shortcode for this too... Awesome plugin, the best backend control and absolutely LOVE the crop tool! by far the ass kickinest slider plugin there is.

    for now, seeing that my slideshow is on the home page, i just slapped a conditional statement right before the loop on page.php and moved it where i wanted it to go with css.... BUT its for a client, so Id like for him to be able to move the slider elsewhere on the site....

    if anyone knows how to quickly template function into a shortcode, i can add it to his functions.php

    <?php if (function_exists('nivoslider4wp_show')) { nivoslider4wp_show(); } ?>

    looks like it should be easy, but im not that far along with shortcode yet...

    add the below shortcode to nivoslider4wp-show.php like this:

    function nivoslider4wp_show() {
    add_shortcode('slider', 'nivoslider4wp_show');

    Now you can use the shortcode [slider] in your post/page.
