Plugin Description

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!

    IF you can incoperate following lines. It is possible to use an own stylesheet:
    In content-slider.php before the opening style-tag:
    if (!file_exists(TEMPLATEPATH.’/css/featured-content-slider.css‘)) {

    and afert the closing style-tag:

    In featured-content-slider.php at line 26 (after wp_enque_script…)
    if (file_exists(TEMPLATEPATH.’/css/featured-content-slider.css‘)) {
    wp_register_style(‚fcs_Style‘, get_template_directory_uri().’/css/featured-content-slider.css‘);

    It is a cool plug-in.
    To the help I will write a problem with which faced.
    Content-slider.php file:
    #featured_slider.feat_next {
    z-index: 10;
    #featured_slider.feat_prev {
    z-index: 10;
    When slides and their more than 10 are added,

    Respectively arrows(to the left, to the right) won’t work. Correct this problem and a plug-in it will be even better.

    Yours faithfully Eugene.

    Hi! Very nice plugin, thank you. Can you say, can i turn off prev next buttons and turn on buttons for every slide (ex. 1,2,3,4)?

    Hi Dennis,

    I am using your plugin on WP 3.4.2 and my issue is that when the page loads, the images for the slideshow are stacked up on top of each other, while the rest of the page renders. Is there a way to fix this? If you can help, I don’t mind giving you a donation 🙂

    Hi, it works great. Just 1 thing… possible to make it display the Excerpt for the post, instead of the post content? Because I may have some post with good title, but very limited content. Thanks.

  7. Mark Breese sagt:

    I was wondering if there was a way to have the link to the featured page/post in the slider open in a new window? For various reasons I need to have the slider displayed on an iframe if the target can not be a new window then the page will open within the iframe…. which won’t work. Is there an easy way to do this?

    I see „code“ before the text on my „Featured Content Slider“. I’ve tried but can’t find out how to remove it. It has worked fine for months but how can I fix it now?

    thank you so much for any help you can give to me (I’m 83 yrs old so maybe too old to do this????)

  9. Tim sagt:

    Anna Lee, to have it display the Excerpt I changed line 40 in the file „featured-content-slider.php“.

    From This:
    $content = apply_filters(‚the_content‘, $content);

    To This:
    $content = apply_filters(‚the_excerpt‘, $content);

    super Plugin. Macht eigentlich genau das was ich gesucht hatte. Leider werden im Slide keine Artikelbilder gezeigt. Auch wenn ich extra ein Bild im Beitrag dafür festlege.
    Beim ersten Slide Durchgang erscheint ein leeres Feld anstatt des Bildes und beim zweiten Durchgang ist nur mehr der Text da. Was kann das sein?

    Vielen Dank für das Plugin!

    lg, Andreas

    I posted this comment yesterday but looks like it was deleted. This plugin is fantastic and I was easily able to load it between the loop and the header on my front page. The problem is that images aren’t showing up. All the posts I’ve included have images inserted and tagged as featured images, but all that shows up on the slider is an empty white space.

    I see this same question a few other places in the comments here, but didn’t see an answer. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
