A responsive slider for integrating into themes via a simple shortcode.
There are plenty of slider plugins to choose from. This one had just the features I wanted, nothing more, nothing less. The responsiveness works very nicely. Best of all, it uses standard WordPress features such as featured images and page order.
I've added 95 slides, but the slideshow loops after only 10. I wonder if I've done something wrong.
Does the job as intended. It would be nice if I could remove the links from the images though.
Would be 5 stars if can put more than 1 slider...but now it´s really great!
Would be awesome if you add a categories support to that slider .
The recent updates requires you to use:
<?php echo do_shortcode['responsive_slider']
I suppose it would have been better to first check the changelog, but I had updated in bulk and didn't notice the change. Ended up reverse engineering the plugin to figure it out before checking the changelog.
Developers, make sure you update your templates :) I sure wasted a lot of time. Apparently the shortcode still works in posts, though I'm not using it that way. Currently running 3.5.1 btw and after updating the above code, the plugin is working.
4/5 for the stupid update wasting my time
This plugin works fine, but, like miunosoft says, i miss some options like description text for slides. By the way, one method to put alt text from slides is adding the follow in the responsiveslider.php
$img_id = get_post_thumbnail_id($post->ID); //to get the id of the attached image
$alt_text = get_post_meta($img_id , '_wp_attachment_image_alt', true); //to get the alt text of the atteched image
<h3 class="slide-alt"><?php echo $alt_text; ?></h3>
I hope this helps.
