[resolved] Unique IDs for each slide (8 posts)

    I'm loving your plugin; it's wonderfully easy to use, which is good since my client might be able to use it!

    One issue - the client wants a grid of images that will have a rollover effect. The grid option you offer is perfect...except that it doesn't write unique ids to each slide. Would it be easy to add that in, please?

    http://eighttwelve.collincountyhistoricalsociety.org/wordpress/ Example, the five colored images at the top are the ones we want to add a rollover effect to.

    Thank you! It's a very cool plugin.

    I have published another version, 1.0.18, which will give you the unique ID for each slide.

    How wonderful! Thank you so much. I will Paypal you a little something in appreciation.

    There is one other thing I would like to do with your plugin. On that same home page, in addition to the gallery, there is also a slideshow, and the client wants a different layout for it. She'd like the caption to the right, comprising about 30% of the total width.

    I see how to make that happen, but it would be at the expense of being able to update the plugin. I wonder if there could be an option to add custom themes?

    No hard feelings if that's more than you want to mess with; I was just hoping to avoid having the client write her captions on her images, rather than using the fields in the plugin, because that would offend me deeply :)

    I looked around and don't see a way to donate to you. If you'd like me to buy you a coffee, please let me know where to PP. Thx!

    Thanks - glad your making use out of it! I did add a donation link button on the main manage slides page in the last update.

    When you mention custom themes, are you just looking for a place to add some CSS? Can you explain the 'themes' concept a little more? Thanks.

    I found your css file, and was able to make a couple of changes (such as changing the background of the caption div from an image to a color.)

    It would be nice to be able to rewrite some of the html, in order to have more control over the final layout. It's not really a huge deal; I think it looks great; the client just wants something a bit different, and I am hoping to prevent her from adding her text directly into her images.

    I realize I *can* rewrite the html, of course, but this would prevent me from ever updating the plugin.

    (Small donation sent; sorry it's not more, but I work for tiny non-profits.)

    Thank you so much!

    Unfortunately, I don't think I'll have time in the next little while to code out the vertical menu.

    If you do end up solving it for your client, feel free to send me the code - I can include it in the plugin.

    Thanks again!
