Q4) Can you explain the short code?

[image-slider-desc setting="1" group="1"]

This short code contain two part, one for slideshow setting and second for image.

SETTING = 1   (This means this slideshow will use the first setting, in the admin slider setting page we have two set of setting option, if you want to use second setting the use SETTING=2)

GROUP = GROUP1 (This is to read the images from the image management page, in the image management page we have one drop-down(Select Gallery Group) this is used to group the images. based on the mentioned group it will read the images.

Image management help

_self loads the linked page/file in the same frame or window as the link.

    • This appears under the slideshow:

      [image-slider-desc Please check the short code, may be no image available for this group]

      What can I do to get rid of it? I disabled the show description in the image setting. (This is a terrific slideshow, thanks a lot!)

  1. Nice plugin, I’m going to try it out on my current project.

    Hope you will add additional settings and capabilities for this one in the future. Thanks a lot Gopi!

  2. Thanks a lot for the plugin…is awesome!!

    I have a question…where should I place the shortcode? And in which form? Sorry for the question but I’m quite new in wordpress and I don’t really know what a shortcode is.

    Thanks a lot in advance,

  3. How do you make image link not required? The description says this is optional.

    How do you remove the description bar? I am not using title or description text and I don’t want that semi-seethrough black bar across the image.


  4. Hi,

    Fantastic work, thank you!

    I’m trying to display this plugin in a front page (not in a post). I’m trying to do this with do_shortcode WordPress function, but it doesn’t work. Could you help me?

    Thank you!

  5. hello,
    your short code is not working.
    i put up that short code in index.php page under “” tags but itz not working….can u explain why?
    i have already setup all the slides etc.

    thanks in advance.

  6. Hi,
    Works gr8, but we can’t have more than one slider in a single post. Grouping images in two different sliders on same post gives lots of bugs, like images overlapping each other, text of each slider gets displayed in the other etc.


  7. Hi,
    this is great plugin. can i move image title, description and number out of the image and display above or below the image ?

    or may be display on right hand side…?


  8. to anyone wanting to get rid of the black bar across the image, go to your ftp client, find plugins/image-slider-with-description/images/slide-bg.png and delete it.

    oh, and to use the shortcode in a template,

    it works for any shortcode

    • Went to my ftp client and deleted plugins/image-slider-with-description/images/slide-bg.png it didnt work.

      The black bar across the top still shows. But it does go away when i refresh the page. Still that doesnt give the look I want and visitors are unlkely to refresh the page.

      Does anyone have any ideas how to get rid of this black bar

    • hi i am trying to get rid of the black bar that runs across the top of the slider. I am using it in wordpress and i dont seem to be able to locate the plugins/image-slider-with-description/images/slide-bg.png to delete. can somebody help me

  9. How do I add this image slider into header.php? Do you have a php code? I am only finding the shortcode but I do not want the slider in my posts, I want it in the header. Thanks!

  10. Yes, how to use it as image slider into header position without a code. However it should have description insert option that ‘Header Image Slider’ doesn’t have in it.

  11. Hi admin,

    Can you give me the php function snippet of code that would allow me to run this plugin from my index template file?

    I can’t use the shortcode.

    Thank you!

    • See line 30 in \wp-content\plugins\image-slider-with-description\js\script.js

      at: 10 * 1000, /* change 1000 to control speed*/

      It says change the 1000 but the 10 at the start is equivalent to seconds so change that to whatever duration you want and refresh your page and the transition time will change.

  12. hello, i have one question. i made some mods on your plugin, but did not find the way, how to align center the images in my slideshow. could you tell me, where to mogify the code? thx!

  13. Is it possible to remove the dark bar where i imagine descriptions and other text goes? There doesn’t seem to be an option to remove it or at least make it transparent. Can this be done?

    to anyone wanting to get rid of the black bar across the image, go to your ftp client, find plugins/image-slider-with-description/images/slide-bg.png and delete it.

    • I am also wondering if you can move the description/black bar to the bottom of the slide. Has anyone found a solution?

      This is a great slider, btw! I have searched for days to find a slider that would not conflict with other things on my client’s site.

  15. I got some mails from user and they said this plug-in break the page in some wp theme.. after big search finally find the issue… the issue is this plugin have the word “wrap” in the CSS file and gallery. so this class name conflict with the theme Class name.

    So, just change the word “wrap” in the plug-in CSS class in the PHP to solve the issue.
    File : image-slider-with-description.php
    Line : 327, 341, 397

  16. How do I get the slider itself to align to the left. It always centers. Does anyone know where in the editor to change this setting??



  17. Love the plugin, but run into an issue with the latest update – it broke the shortcode! The slideshow no longer displays, it just shows the shortcode instead. I didn’t change the shortcode at all, I just updated the plugin and nothing else.

  18. I just updated the image slide to version 4.0 from 3.0 and it killed it. Now the code is showing. Anyway to go back to version 3?? Have been using 3.4 for several days now with version 3 just fine.

  19. “Fade in effect that has the current image fading over the previous one.”

    How is this done? The current “fade” setting fades the current image out completely, then fades in the next image. I could not find any information related to “fading over”, i.e. the current image fading out on top of a second visible image. Please advise.

  20. Only slider I found that truly supports transparent PNG’s with fading transitions.

  21. Great work – thank you! This was the perfect plugin for what I wanted to do on our church website. It’s been simple to use and very functional. Thanks again!

  22. I posted the slider on my word press site and it works… but caused the menu bar to disappear. The page is titled “Pictures” and if I deactivate the slider, the menu bar works. Any ideas?

  23. I just updated the image slider and it is in conflict with “Wp-property” plugin. Is there any way to revert to the old version?

  24. At first I found this awkward to use but after realising the simplicity of setting it up and linking images it works a treat

  25. Hi

    All my inserted pictures appear larger than they are and cropped so I can only see the centre part.

    I must be missing something. Can you help please?

    • Hi Xavier, This may be your image size is lesser then your gallery size. please arrange the width and height of the gallery.

  26. Hi,

    I was wondering if it was possible for other users (for example, authors or contributors) to add new images to the slider?

    I’m already using a user editor plug-in but the Image Slider isn’t an option to change permissions.

  27. Hi admin,

    Can you give me the php function snippet of code that would allow me to run this plugin from my index.php or pahe.php template file?

    I can’t use the shortcode.

    Thanks a lot!
    great plugin.

  28. Hi Gopi, iI’ve just installed this plugin on my test system and it works fine, the only concern is that it is in conflict with easy fancybox plugin I use to display pictures in lightbox. Fancybox doesn’t work when the slider plugin is enabled. Any clue ? or do you know a lightbox plugin compatible? Thanks


  29. I am trying to get rid of the grey line across the top of the image slider. I have located my plug in files but there is an extensive list and i really dont know where to locate the plugins/image-slider-with-descriptions/images/slide-bg.png file.
    I have all this listed

    • slide-bg.png is in CSS class. if you want to change this name please open the “image-slider-with-description” php file and search the word, it is in line 391.

  30. what file calls jquery.min.js?

    I am needing to comment this out because there is a conflict that I know this plugin is causing with Event Espresso. Thanks!

        please help me. Its urgent…

  33. Hi, I installed the plugin a while ago and worked perfectly. I just updated the version a few minuted ago to 6.0 and I’m working on wordpress 3.1.3 which is fully compatible with the update (according to you). Now the slider does not work instead the short code shows up on the site. What can I do, need help urgently, thanks!

  34. I just updated the plug in as Word Press told me to and the photos in the slide show are now being cut in half by the numbers 1,2,3 etc and photo description is now laying over top the photos instead of below as it should be….HELP!

  35. I am running a test page and find when the last slide is shown, instead of looping right back to the first slide, it slides through the slides quickly back to the first one and then starts again. Ideas to make it seem smoother when it loops back to the first slide?

  36. This is beautiful. How can I remove the semi-transparent black background on the top of the image where the description goes ~ thanks

  37. We are changing over our current website to wordpress. Currently we have set up rotating banner ads 140px x 80px. They are set up in tables and run through java script. We are looking for a plug in that will allow us to do this in wordpress. Would any of your plugins work?
    Thank you

  38. This plugin is working fine and fast! Great plugin.
    But, apparently it is not possible to display 2 widgets at the same time.
    I use the text widget with this command : [image-slider-desc setting=”1″ group=”1″] and a second with [image-slider-desc setting=”2″ group=”2″].
    When doing so, both widgets are mixed up.
    Any idea how i can fix this?


  39. I have just taken over managing a site with this plugin..

    I need to look up the current image file name on the slider…How can I look up current image file name and description using Image-slider admin tool.

    I can see the file name in the database, but am not able to discover it using image-slider image management tool.. Shouldn’t I be able to look up the current list of images known to image slider.

    Please advise.
