[resolved] Slideshow Plug-in/Program (9 posts)

    I am moving my site back to WordPress and I am also moving to a new domain, http://www.davidwquinn.com. However, I have some slideshows prepared in CoffeeCup Flash Slideshows. These do not seem to function in WordPress on a Page, and frankly I don't like them anyway.

    I've done a search and have come up empty handed, so I'm posting here. Can anybody recommend a good slideshow plug-in or program. I love my Flickr but I don't want a Aviary slideshow to be just a photoalbum. I'd like to have something to put on a page and just have a slideshow that run automatically.

    Any suggestions, comments, or programs?

    You might want to try ANIga Gallery at http://animalbeach.net/aniga. I think it has a slideshow option.

    I found a simple javascript that does that function. SlideShow Demo and Download.
    Also there is a flash version as well. SlideShow before it with went pro. download

    Danny -

    Thank you. I like that, but I actually can't figure out how to use the javascript version. Any ideas?

    I created a php file called blog slide show.php. I used the iframe function. This what in that php file.

    <div imageContainer img>
    <iframe width="211" scrolling="no" height="425" frameborder="0" src="http://dannycastillo.com/wp/Blog/xfade2.html"> </iframe>
    </div>

    Now you need to create a folder with what ever name you like in wp/. In that folder I created another folder called images. so wp/your folder name/images. Next I created a CCS doc called xfade2.css. This will control the div that will be in your HTML file.

    div#imageContainer img {
    height: auto;
    display: none;
    position: absolute;
    padding-top: 15px;
    }

    I am just learning my self, so I am not sure if this the best css to use.

    I just viewed the source of the demo page and removed all thing I didn't need. Click here and then view my source to see what you will need for the your HTML doc. Or simply copy and edit.

    Upload all your images to the image folder. Upload you js, css, and html docs to wp/your folder name.

    You should be set. Also, You post the iframe tag in a post or page without what I did.

    One more thing. If you want to change the speed....
    setTimeout(so_xfade,1000);
    change the number higher for slower viewing.

    It's marked resolved, but I use a plugin called flash fader. Does a nice crossfade blend of each image. Easy to add photos etc. in the admin of wordpress.
