    First, thank you for your plugin. It looks nice!

    I didn't find an option to activate the navigation links for the slider. Did you implement this feature yet?

    If not, can you give me some hints, where I can activate the links in the sourcecode?

    You mean make each image a link? Just when adding a photo to the gallery, add a link in the URL box, under the caption box.

    No - sorry, my fault.
    I mean these bullets under the slider to switch through the slider.

    Thank you for your response.

    I'm also wondering why they're not showing up below the image. Thanks!

    The original Nivo slider (http://nivo.dev7studios.com/) has nav links but the developer of this plugin has opted for just left and right arrows. There isn't an option to show slide navigation unfortunately.

    Hmmmmm, but there is the option in the plugin for them. Thats why its confusing.

    Oh, weird! I'm not seeing that in my version and it's not in the changelog.

    If you look at line 47 of nivoslider4wp-show.php, it looks like it doesn't actually get the option from your settings but it should be showing:

    controlNav:true, // 1,2,3... navigation
    controlNavThumbs:false, // Use thumbnails for Control Nav
    controlNavThumbsFromRel:false, // Use image rel for thumbs
    controlNavThumbsSearch: '.jpg', // Replace this with...
    controlNavThumbsReplace: '_thumb.jpg', // ...this in thumb Image src

    I know other slides let you move the navigation around by having a different shortcode / function for it but I don't think that's the case here.

    The reason that it is not showing is simple, when you look in the stylesheet nivoslider4wp.css the option .nivo-controlNav is set to display: none; I changed this and gave it the right style and it works fine. Use Firebug or Google Chrome to find the classes added to the bullet nav trough element inspection.
