What I spent hours looking for – a flexible slideshow with features
This plugin is great for my needs.
Spent hours now and then over several weeks looking for a plugin to present galleries of different dimensions on a new website. Installed and uninstalled the “biggest” plugins because they lacked a feature I needed ( see below ) or just didn’t do it cleanly and simply. The responsive plugins lacked traditional needs and sometimes behaved erratically, I figured due to the css that comes with them.
Am calling the slideshows from the template code rather than from a post or page, and the php code for each gallery is provided from the gallery setup page (mouseover the gallery title and then click Hardcode) – plus I can specify width and height parameters too.
Each slide can optionally link to a url when the slide is clicked.
Is a breeze to order the slides, without installing a seperate plugin.
The client is giving me the layout and the requirements are tight and so is this plugin – I’m making a div with a border and calling the slideshow within the div and it fits perfectly (when I add 6 pixels to the gallery size). Am tweaking border color and width and moving the slideshow around the page with no issues.
The dashboard steps to define galleries and load slides makes sense to me – is clean and simple.
The slideshow does things I don’t need yet, like have a slide appear in multiple galleries with a simple check mark. You just load the slides and then indicate which galleries to have them in.
Recommend this plugin to anyone wanting to have a slideshow on their site.
