      cheers in advance

  1. Gopi – terrific!

    It doesn’t get any easier than this… and you can get the same kind of feature that you’d normally pay for in a high premium template.

    Thanks heaps!


  2. Hey, if you go to my site you will see the problem at the bottom on my footer I have this plugin, and my images are cut in half and they have some text on them sometimes, I really want to use this plug in but I can’t if its doing this, what can I do?

    • Dont try to add the text in the images.. the form accept only one image page and image target link. in the example site i saw ur try to add the text in the target link box.

  3. Dear Webmaster,

    Sorry for my carelessness. Now your plugin works perfectly in my blog: http://bandungholiday.net/package-to-bandung

    Feel free for anyone to see the implementation there. It is really beautiful!:-)

    This is the code you should insert into your post:

    [WP-IMAGE-GALLERY:TYPE=(according what you’ve entere in the image management setting) :WIDTH=450:HEIGHT=338:PAUSE=3000:RANDOM=YES]

    Thank you a trillion for this wonderful plugin!

  4. Is it just me or is the transition really…twitchy? Any chance to smooth it out or something? FF/Chrome.

    Also, any chance this thing can resize/scale images?

    Thank you for a nice plugin though.

  5. hi,
    i need help, i have installed your plugin, placed it into the sidebar widget are, but the images are not showing?

    i did change the default location of the images.
    thanks, chris g

    • is this working with default path ??????????

      U compare the default location and ur new location and check all required slash(/) u mentioned like default path..

  6. Great plug-in. I have installed it and it works great!

    I have a question about visual overlapping with other items on my page. The top menu bar drop-downs on my website drop behind the slideshow instead of in front. Is there a way to change that hierarchy so the slideshow is behind the menu drop-downs?

  7. I fussed over TONS of different slideshows and formats, some in Java, some DHTML, some powered by Ajax, and couldn’t get any of them to work right after porting it over into WordPress. I could get it to work locally in an HTML or PHP file on the same server but as soon as I tried to embed it into the WordPress pages composing them organically they would break with undefined elements. I finally gave up and searched for a WordPress-only solution. Your plugin was that solution. It worked beautifully, better than any of the others would have turned out anyway, and if I had found it sooner I would have saved myself a few nights of stress. Highly recommended!

  8. how can i publish two different galleries (type ?) on the same index.page ?

    if using the code <php if (function_exists (wpis)) wpis()

  9. First try at a WP site or any site for that matter – luv your plugin! Only thing, when the image is clicked, I would like for it to open in the same browser window and not open another – not sure how to do it?

  10. Hello,
    thanks for the plugin. How can I use pictures from existing galleries or mediathek ? Want to slideshow all of my pictures.
    greets from Germany

  11. Hi Gopi

    Sent this inquiry earlier through the “Contact Me” page. Apologies for that.

    Thanks again for your great plugin(s).

    Resized widget to 725×290 from 750×300 in Gallery Setting. Now find the next image to be partially displayed at the top of the present image and a similar amount of the present image cut off at the bottom. Do I now have to resize all my images from 750×300 to 725×290 and upload them again?

  12. Thanks for this great plugin.

    Is it possible to make the photos to move into other directions? like form left to right, instead of top-down.

  13. Great Plugin, the only one I found that links the images to a URL and offers random order display.
    Question: There is only one sidebar widget. Is there a way to make multiple slideshows for the widget?


  14. Still unclear as to how to declare different galleries in php code method rather than shortcode. Can you please explain..


  15. It is perfect time to make a few plans for the future and
    it’s time to be happy. I have read this post and if I may just I want to recommend you few interesting issues or suggestions. Maybe you can write next articles referring to this article. I wish to learn even more issues approximately it!

  16. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.

    But think about if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this website could certainly be one of the best in its field. Superb blog!

  17. Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve visited this website before but after looking at a few of the articles I realized it’s new to me. Regardless, I’m certainly pleased I discovered it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back often!

  18. Thank you for another magnificent article. Where else
    may anyone get that kind of info in such a perfect manner of writing?
    I’ve a presentation subsequent week, and I’m on the search for such info.

  19. I am using WP image slideshow plugin and the images are showing up too large on my Android device (as well as laptop). I have downsized the images to 190 x 100 and they still show up too large. Changing the pixels in the shortcode and gallery settings does not fix this problem. I have had this same problem with a couple other of your image gallery plugins. What do I need to do differently?

  20. I’ve placed this widget onto the primary widget area. – and it appears on the “home” page – but no OTHER pages. .even tho other pages use the same template ( which has the sidebar ) .

    Any ideas why it only appears on the page that is defined as the home page?

    Other widgets work as expected.. — if placed into the primary widget area.. appear on all pages using the default template.

    Help appreciated!

  21. Hi,

    Great plugin! How would one format the position of the slideshow? I put a around the shortcode and the styling I added to the did not affect the positioning of the slideshow at all. Any advice?


  22. Hello! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest
    authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My site covers a lot of the same
    topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!

  23. hello, having a little trouble with this one, it is loading the next image too soon and you can see the bottom of the next picture before you should. any ideas?

  24. It is really a nice and helpful piece of info. I’m glad that you simply shared this useful information with us. Please stay us up to date like this. Thanks for sharing.

  25. How do you add captions to the pictures in the slideshow? How do you make the transitions fade instead of drop down?

  26. I want to position de slider. Is there an option to do so? Using div’s is not an option. Because in different brouwsers it will apear alos different.
    Thanks alreadt
