Plugin Description

WP Featured Content Slider is a very powerful WordPress Slideshow. You can feature as many Posts and Pages as you want. You can define a picture for every single post/page which will then be automatically cropped to the right resolution. WP-Featured Content Slider comes with a great option set. You can even define sliding effects such as „fade“ or „slideRight“ and many more. Furthermore you can adjust timeout and many Layout and Design Options. Inserting Posts/Pages to WP-Featured Content Slider is as easy as you can imagine. Simply choose „Feature in WP-Featured Content Slider“ when editing a post/page.

Thumbnails are being generated automatically via wordpress built-in functionality. There is no need to support timthumb anymore. If you are already using the plugin with images, you will need to regenerate thumbnails (regenerate thumbnails plugin). If you are customizing image-size you will need to regenerate as well!

    Hallo, das ist wirklich ein cooles Plugin. Danke.
    Kann man das auch vielleicht mit einem einfach trick für Pages verwenden?

    Wirklich ein super Plugin!

    Allerdings habe ich zwei Probleme:
    1. Auf der Startseite werden bei mir nun nur noch die Artikel aus der Kategorie angezeigt, aus der auch die Artikel für den Slider ausgelesen werden. Wie kann man das ändern?

    2. Ist es irgendwie möglich den Slider so einzustellen, dass er automatisch (alle 4 Sekunden) weiterslidet und den nächsten Artikel darstellt, ich die Pfeile also quasi entfernen kann?

    Gruß und Dank im voraus.

    Great plugin!
    Just one problem: I can’t show the links in the excerpt, it seems they’re cut down or filtered. I looked in the code and tried to modify or delete the content filter but it didn’t go.
    Can anyone help me?

    Thx in advance!

    While I like the plug-in, I see that several people have asked about posts showing up below the slider on static pages, but the question is not being answered. I’ll ask again. Can this plug-in be used on a static WP home page with the page copy showing below the slider rather than all the posts?



  6. david sagt:

    Adding the following to your template after the slider code prevents posts from showing up below the slider on static pages.

    wp_reset_query(); // Restore global post data stomped by the_post().

    Any way to include more than one category?

    • admin sagt:

      Hi avenged – Go to Admin Settings for Featured Content Slider and go to Category ID.
      Type in the categories seperated by comma f.e. 10,2,5 would display posts of category 10 and 2 and 5!

  8. avenged sagt:

    Thanks, its just confusing since this plugin was implemented into a theme I acquired. What file would I need to edit for it to have the same effect?

    Q: How can i configure the javascript or php, in order to activate the autoscroll?

    Please Help!

  12. Sakae sagt:

    Hello, congratulations for this great plugin.

    David explained how to get rid of a annoying BUG that came with this plugin (

    Plugin is installed and working just fine.

    But I want to know how to show randomly articles from this category, since I have more than 3.

    Every time I add one, it just changes the last one. I would like to show all random.

  13. Alioso sagt:

    Very nice plugin.
    Just a quick comment, online 33 of content-slider.php , don’t forget to include a closing trailing slash for the img tag , for proper html validation.
    That’s it.

    Has anyone figured out how to make it autoscroll?

  16. gcmedia sagt:

    habe mir Featured Content Slider eingebaut. Er zeigt mir aber keine Thumbs obwohl ich ein neues Feld „Thumbnail“ angelegt und ein Bild per direktem URL-Path angegeben habe.

    Sehe lediglich das bekannte rote X in weißem Kasten.

    An was kann das liegen?
