NextGEN Gallery
Use NextGen as a content slideshow in a post, a la Mashable (7 posts)

    I've been pouring over the plugin directory for a good slideshow plugin to use INSIDE posts to display lots of content or list type posts in an interactive way without having to use the "next" tag and force an entirely new page load. Examples of what I'm talking about are http://mashable.com/2010/09/04/404-error-pages or http://www.marthastewart.com/photogallery/fathers-day-gifts.

    I think the mashable example is actually using nextgen but I can't figure out how to reproduce that. Any ideas on how to do so (or of plugins built to display content within a post in this way)?

    There are many NextGEN templates that can work for what you want.

    The GalleryView template is a good one to start with.

    Look for Carousel type templates for NextGEN if you don't like GalleryView.

    That should give you a start!

    hey JSDavis82, have you found any success reproducing the Mashable slideshow look?

    Sure haven't zimka. I haven't been able to figure out anything CLOSE to mashable's slideshow....unfortunately. Have you?

    nope. this is really frustrating. we finally found one thing the Internet can't tell how to replicate.

    that's possible, but you will need to modify .js and play with CSS.
    Look here,

    as well as this post I created, which shows how to modify .js so that you have photo description in the sideshow.

    Indeed zimka.

    davydov. i'm sure that could be made to work...with LOTS of mad js skills. With the rise of the slideshow (as content, not just for pics), i still can't believe someone hasn't made a plugin to handle it.
