Plugin Description:

WP Slideshow is a highly customizable Slideshow Plugin for WordPress. You can add the Slideshow everywhere on your Blog (widget-ready).
The Slideshow displays as many Posts with Images as you like. The best is: You don’t need any knowledges concerning programming, because you can adjust Settings directly in your WordPress Administration Area.

Features of WP Slideshow:

  • Display unlimited Posts with Images
  • Sliding effect with Javascript
  • Widget Ready
  • Navigation through Back & Forward Buttons
  • Nice overlaying Description and Post Title automatically grabbed from your Post

Adjustments in your Administration Area:

  • Choose Category ID for Slideshow
  • Choose number/sort/order of Posts
  • Autorotate on/off (Loop yes or no)
  • Slideshow Speed and Duration
  • Choose a vertical sliding Effect rather than default horizontal Effect
  • Styling: Width, Height, Border, Text length of Description, Color, Font, Mouseovers etc.


Installation is really easy:

  • Upload /wp-slideshow/ to your Plugin directory (wp-content/plugins/)
  • Go to the ‚Plugins‘ Page of your Administration Area and activate the Plugin.
  • Go to Settings/WP Slideshow and customize the Slideshow to your needs.
  • Place
    <?php include (ABSPATH . '/wp-content/plugins/wp-slideshow/slideshow.php');?>

      in your template or add it as a Widget in Themes/Widgets.

  • Add Custom Field to your Post with Key „featured“ and Value should be direct link to the image like „“ (without quotation marks).

Things you need to know:

  • You can Insert WP Slideshow everywhere! For Example under your Navigation Bar, in your Footer, Sidebar etc.
  • You don’t have to edit the Stylesheet you can make changes directly in your Administration Panel (Settings –> WP Slideshow)
  • Defautlt Resolution for the pictures is 400×250. Keep in mind that, when you change width and height you have to change the resolution of your Images as well.


Enjoy this lovely Plugin!

    Thank’s for your Plugin, it’s great

    Why you don’t use directly this wp_enqueue_script(‚jquery-ui-core‘); in place of <script …

    jQuery is imported in WP.

    Love the plugin however it breaks lightbox 2 which is an integral part of my theme. I tested using the widget and by entering the php include into my theme, both with the same results where lightbox 2 would stop working alltogether.

    I also found that the duration would not change using the settings page and I had to manually enter it into the javascript file.

    I’m using wordpress 2.9.2

    Once the lightbox issue is resolved I would definetly use this plugin

  15. Adam sagt:

    Just tested with shadowbox and it works fine. I think I’ll switch from lightbox to shadowbox instead.

    Thanks for your efforts in creating this plugin
