Horizontal carousel image slideshow

Horizontal carousel image slideshow WordPress plugin is a good DHTML JavaScript script plugin for the showcasing of images on your site. It displays images in a 3D, carousel fashion. The script idea is originally taken from some website via Google search.

Features of this plugin

  • Slideshow can be set to either slide in from right to left, or the reverse.
  • Slideshow can be set to be 4-sided, 6, 8, or 12.
  • Example : 4-sided slideshow means, 2 images will be in view at all times (the other 2 behind the scene).
  • Each image can have an optional link associated with it.
  • Slideshow pauses on mouseover.
  • A DOM based script that works in modern DHTML browsers- Firefox, IE5+, NS6+, Opera 7+.

    Great effect!

    Just checking… is it possible to add a different slideshow to more than one page? I would like to add it to the bottom of different pages to showcase images related to that page.

    I know some slideshows work by adding the shortcode to the desired page, and they display images attached to the page; is it true for your slideshow, as well?

    Thank you!

    Most of whatever you point out is astonishingly precise and that makes me ponder why I had not looked at this with this light before. This particular article really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this particular issue goes. Nevertheless at this time there is one particular position I am not really too cozy with so while I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual core theme of the issue, let me observe what the rest of the readers have to point out.Well done.

    Hi, great plugin but I was wondering how to make it work for me. It is for the template. Will be situated in the header.php. The slideshow will be visible at all time.
