[Resolved] [Plugin: WP Supersized] More control over links in slides

  • jasenko_b



    I’ve installed the plugin on WP 3.2.1. Works great! But, I needed more control over the links generated by the code. Since I didn’t need captions, I decided to use the caption field to store the URL I want to link to and changed the code accordingly.


    url : '" . get_bloginfo('url') . "/' with url : '" . $converted_caption . "/'

    in lines 486 and 494 of WPSupersized.php. Didn’t know which to change, so did both 🙂

    It isn’t the neatest solution, but for now it does the trick. I thought it may be useful to others.

    Many R.E.S.T.E.C.P to Sam Dunn and Worldinmyeyes.

    I also need the caption to be the link.

    But the iptc caption isn’t being imported when I import thru the media library.

    Your help is appreciated.



    Never mind, I got it… I had to get an iptc editor.



    Yes, it won’t work when you click right > properties > details > description.

    You can go with Photoshop > file > file info or
    get Picasa, you can edit iptc there or
    some other IPTC editor..



    Thanks, I appreciate the help.

    I now have the links but they only activate when I hover over the bottom portion of the image… like the lower 25% area.

    If you have any tips for this, I would appreciate it.

    i had the same problem. your <body> is covering up the image and also the link. Give that a width of say 350px and it should work fine.

    WP Supersized 2.0 now allows you to choose the link that you want for each slide. To do this, you will have to create an xml file with the list of slides and links (also captions). Have a look at the FAQ for details.

    Hi Benoit De Boeck,

    I am slightly new to coding and am also trying create different urls with different images. I followed the instructions for .xml but I am stuck on adding the .xml link to the SupersizedDir. You see I am using the slideshow only on the homepage (with NextGen gallery) so I can’t really reference a page/post to attach the .xml file. I want a slideshow only on the homepage of my site. Am I missing something in the instructions on how to add the .xml file without pages/posts?
