This is not a problem topic. I'm just seeking input.
I run a small news website in Arizona using WP and Brian Gardner's Revolution Media Pro theme.
Almost all of our stories involve some combination of multimedia: Photo slideshows, Podcasts, Video, Interactive Graphics, etc.
I am looking for a plugin or widget that can embed these items in posts or in the sidebar. I think having these lined up side-by-side in a horizontal box across the middle of the post (i.e., MSNBC.com) would be the most effective way of getting these out to the audience, but a sidebar solution would also be welcome. I've looked at NextGEN, but that's it so far.
Could anyone recommend a widget or plugin -- or combination of widgets and plugins -- that would allow me to pick and choose photos, audio files, and videos to add to a "Multimedia Toolbox" that is laid across the width of a post? I hope such a product is available.
Otherwise, I'll use <div> tags for video and podcasts and NextGEN for photos.
Thanks for your time!
