  1. In the page do you want to align the vertical scroll to left or right? add the short code within one DIV and use this style “style=”float:left”” to that DIV.

  2. It seemed to be working fine last night, but this morning instead of the vertical images scrolling, it just had the shortcode [IVRSS_GALLERY:TYPE=gallery1:DISPLAY=2:HEIGHT=150:RANDOM=YES]
    so I had to restore the page. Any ideas what might have caused the short code to appear instead of the images?
    Thank you for your help.

  3. hello,
    i install your plug in thanks for it.
    but it wont show more then 3 images in the scroll even when im changing it to 5 in the:
    No of images you want to display at the same time :

    any idea why ?

  4. The vertical scroll with images works great. My question is, I want my text to go next to the images on my page. I put this code in:


    which brings my text up next to the images, however, it also makes my vertical images narrower. Adjusting the padding to a higher number continues to narrow the images more. How do I get the text to stay next to the images and narrow the text column (margins) to not affect the images?

  5. I figured out my text issue, just added a width statement to the above code and it does what I need now. Thanks so much, love it. Kristin

  6. I’m using this plugin in a new website I’m developing but the images do not “slide” as in yours. What do you think I am doing wrong? I have a set of 19 images. Is it this number too small? Hope to get some help because I really like it and wish it would work exactly as yours!!! Thanks, H

  7. Hi

    I really like the vertical image scroll plugin and would like to use it on my website.

    I have several properties listed on the website. Each project/property page has a large image at the top of the page content underneath along with other images.

    What i need to do is have the vertical image scroll plug into the left or right of the main image.

    So far i have been unsuccessful and would really like to know how to do it.

    How do i wrap the plugin around an image?



      • Thanks for the quick response. Sorry to have to ask but could you post an example of how to correctly add the div float right option to the shortcode please?

        Im not very experienced in writing css and dont know what to do. On the internet i found this;

        But im not sure how to use this with the shortcode. Please help

  8. Hi, thanks for this plugin.
    I’m using it in my theme with this code:
    and it works.

    But I would like to set 200px height of “ivrss_holder1” div (where images scroll) keeping the images 600px height .

    Is that possible?
    Thanks 🙂

    • Figured it out. Found the setTimeout function in the js file. Just have to remember to change that when I upgrade the plugin!
      Unless there is something I can put in the shortcode…

  9. Hi, thanks for your plug-ins.. Is there a way to get the image alt text to show up when you mouse over an image? Like it does in your horizontal reel plugin.. thanks!

    • I am having the same “alt text” problem with the “vertical scroller” – the horizontal is fine

      has there been any conclusion to this?

  10. Just want to say your article is as amazing. The clearness in your post is just nice and i can assume you’re an expert on this subject. Well with your permission allow me to grab your RSS feed to keep up to date with forthcoming post. Thanks a million and please carry on the gratifying work.

  11. Hy. I just want to say that what you post here is really nice post so I have post http://www.gopiplus.com/work/2011/05/30/wordpress-plugin-image-vertical-reel-scroll-slideshow/ on my Facebook profile so everyone can have the possibility to enjoy. I was glad when I saw this tittle, WordPress plugin Image vertical reel scroll slideshow, on google search, and i was so becouse at long last I found what I was looking for. Thank you

  12. Hey, This is a great plugin. I’m having trouble with the destination url. Where do I get the url from? Is it my sites page or a gallery I establish? please help.

  13. I have some jpg prints that I would like to show on my website using these vertical slideshow. Is this possible ? and if so, how do I select my jpg files ?


  14. Hey, very nice website!! I will bookmark your web site and take the feeds also…I’m happy to find a lot of useful information here in the post, we need develop more strategies in this regard, thanks for sharing. . . . . .

  15. Great Post Cas!I think I will make lkooing for things that I am accepting as Status Quo my thought experiment for the day.I am not sure I could have lived without at least one scroll wheel. I have two on the computer at work. One on the mouse and one on the keyboard and they make life so much better. Of course I brought in my own keyboard from home to get that but it was well worth it!

  16. Fixed it. If anyone else needs to center the image reel in the widget:

    In image-vertical-reel-scroll-slideshow.php at line 106

    change text-align:left;



    easy 🙂

  17. Each of the images can have a link target, but can they also have a title – so that if users hover over an image they get a title telling them about the link?

  18. Hi,

    really enjoying the simplicity in use of this plugin.

    I have one question though. I’d need to have multiple instances of the widget vor different sections of the page in order to customize the sidebars. Is there any possibilty to do that?


  19. Hi,

    As Thorsten, I would like to know if it’s possible to have multiple instances of your widget, to use them in different categories section of my website, or if there is a way to duplicate easely your plugin to use them with different images ?



  20. How can I set a specific width and height to the images? I would like to get the images resized automaticly. Is that possible?

  21. hi,
    great plugin, i used it on another site no problem, but on a new site i am building it will not allow me to add any images to the gallery, i have setup the gallery, added the widget but when i try to add images and fill out the form it simply reloads the form but blank and says “No data available! use below form to create!”

    any thoughts? the site is currently running on my localhost under webmatrix whilst i build it, but i do not think that is the problem as i have used your plugin and this setup on the other site with no problems.

    anyone else experiencing this? I am using the very latest WP release


  22. seems the plugin doesnt work with the latest WP, i just did a new install, NO theme, NO plugins other than this one and yet it is not possible to add an image to the gallery 🙁

    anyone else come across this?


    • Plugin tested till wp 3.4 version.. its seems you have not activated the plugin properly.. at the time of activation, it ll create the new table with default value.. if your case no default value, so it means problem in ur activation.

      • hi admin
        thanks for the reply, yeah, i am not sure what is happening, as i have activated, but seems a problem with webmatrix and localhost, as i have just tested on a new site on my hosts production site and it worked, then with an exact copy of the site on localhost run under webmatrix it installs, activates but, doesnt let you create the slides/images – very odd.


  23. hi,
    great plugin, I’m using it in my theme with this code in the new page

  25. Gopi,
    I am using your slide show, thanks for creating. Is there a way to upload more than one image at a time. It takes a long time to enter the four pieces of information for each photo one at a time. You can contact me through website as webmaster as well. Thanks, Anne Marie

  26. First of all, great plugin.

    I use it as a sponsor slideshow and I’ve got a problem with the images’ width and height. I would like to have all the images in the same width and than keep the original proportions. What’s happening now is that the images overflow eachother. I tried to solve the problem with overflow:visible but this didn’t’work for me. Do you have a solution for this?


  27. I am using Image Vertical Reel Scroll which is a great plugin for WordPress. It worked okay when I first loaded it but has now stopped scrolling. The images still change but do not scroll upwards as they did.

    My system is Windows Vista.

    Any help appreciated.

  28. Fisrt: this is a very good plug-in, thank you very much, and, I have one issue: I have no idea how, but I get some blinks every time that the slide happens. Any ideas?
    Here’s the website where I’m testing it: http://petroquimex.com/wp/

    And an extra consult: there is any way to control the slide with a couple of buttons, and, is possible to add a function to stop the slideshow on rollover?


  29. Have just downloaded this plugin on a client’s request for use on their website.
    Images do not upload – when I enter the details on the Image Management page the details disappear and the image does not appear on the site.
    All that appears is “No data available! Use form below to create!”

    Have tried this numerous times and have uninstalled and reinstalled to try again with no luck.

    I am using Thesis theme for WordPress and using the shortcode wrapped in php in the multimedia box of the theme so the gallery appears only on one page.

    The message that appears on the front end of the site is – No image availabe for the mentioned group! please check the short code.

    I usually use NextGen Gallery but client specifically wants to use your plugin. Please advise how to make it work.

    Thanks in anticipation.

    • Hi wildelycreative,

      I think the table not installed properly in the database, Please check your database and confirm table installed or not.

  30. Does anyone have any advice as to how I can stop Version 6.1 from flashing? The images scroll and then flash once just before the scroll pauses.

    I have uninstalled and reinstalled the plugin several times with no change.

    I’m using the Ari theme for WordPress.

    I’d be very grateful for any help 🙂

  31. I have used IVRSS of yours and it works wonderfully.
    Desire 2 additional features – One, to get a brief title for each of the images and the second to stall the scrolling of the images in the reel when one hovers the cursor on the image. Is this possible?

  32. What we need is to be able to add a ‘class’ to an inserted image.How can we achieve that?

    Also we need a pause when hovering an image…

  33. I want to make slider continuous rite now it stops after every image i want when rollover then
    can you please tell me how to do thatstop

  34. any reason why scrolling will not work on home page where shortcode is pasted to a text box. it just shows 3 images, but they don’t scroll?

    website is still under development. thanks

  35. I placed the shortcode provided by you on POST but its just showing one image with no animation – i group the images but nothing happening.

  36. Hi

    For my site studioinfoart.com/cmk I want to use your plugin twice but not on same page. I want two different vertical sliders on two different pages.

    is it possible.

    i have created one and now i want to use it again but what i see is that the widget is missing from the widgets page… is it because i have already used it once?

    thanks for this gr8 plugin

  37. I really really love your plugin!

    Last days I noticed that, changing screen size (for example to 90%) make the slide stop at all.
    Is it normal? I mean, maybe the plugin is not responsive or something like that?

    Thanks a lot anyway.

  38. Hello,

    I recently installed the plugin but the images do not display at all, there is horizontal movement, but the images look broken. There are “broken image” images that move horizontally. Please help!

  39. Great plugin but unfortunately it doesn’t work properly under IE8 or Google Chrome. Every time the scrolling begins again after the pause, it tries to reload the images, which, if they are large-ish png’s they take a while to reload.

    The only browsers I found where it worked 100% properly were Firefox and Safari.
