      Just upload your images into “wp-content\plugins\vertical-carousel-slideshow\images” this directory, and it ll fetch images directly from this folder, in the front remove the cache and check the new uploaded images

    The only one missing from your great work seems to be a nice horizontal Carousel … shame, it is what I was looking for :-(

    I found this one but no knowledge of how to make it a WP plugin
