Since version 1.3.0

I added 3 new options into the “general” section of the plugin options:

  • Show slideshow on these single posts
  • Show slideshow on these pages
  • Show on archive pages
  • If you need to load slideshow scripts on all pages, leave the input field empty.
  • IMPORTANT:
    If you do NOT want to load slideshow scripts on any page at all, type in an unused page ID like 999999 or so. The same you can do with single posts.
  • If you need to load slideshow scripts only on pages with IDs 10,20 and 35, you just have to type these values separated by comma into the input field of “Show slideshow on these pages”. So you should type in the values like:
    10,20,35
    
  • The same you have to do if you want to load slideshow scripts only on certain single posts. Of course this time you have to type the values into the “Show slideshow on these single posts” input field.
  • If you need to load slideshow scripts on the archive pages keep the option “Show on archive pages” checked.
  • One more “Save settings” button was added below the options.

Features

  • Upload images via plugin’s options panel
  • Option to set loading of the slideshow scripts/styles only when you need them (since 1.3.0)

How-to

IMPORTANT:
Please, do not forget to save settings each time you change them!

Installation

  • Download the plugin from WordPress repository.
  • Unzip and upload it to wp-contentplugins. Or you can go to the admin panel:
    • Plugins –> Add New
    • Type “all-in-one slideshow” into the search field.
    • Install.
    • Go to the admin panel Settings->All-In-One Slideshow.
    • That’s it. Now you can start playing with your new slideshow.

Widget and Code

There are 3 ways how to implement the slideshow on your page. You can use only one per page.
1. Widget

  • Go to admin panel->appearance->widgets
  • Drag All-In-One Slideshow widget to a widgetized area.

2. Shortcode
This is how the shortcode looks (without spaces!):

[aio_slideshow]

Simply add it to your post.
3. PHP function
This is how the function looks:

<?php aio_slideshow(); ?>

Images

  • The image should be not smaller than the dimension you set in the admin panel. (The default dimensions of the image is 400×200 pixels.)
  • Upload and delete your images via plugin’s option panel.
  • In the same place you can set destination URL and title of the image
  • If you have a problem with uploading of the images, please read carefully this post.

Adding new Cufon fonts

By default you can choose from 8 Cufonized fonts. If you want to add new fonts, please follow these steps:

  • First you have to generate JavaScript file of your .otf, .ttf etc. font file. To generate this you have to go the Cufon generator.
  • Upload the font into the /wp-content/plugins/all-in-one-slideshow/cufon/fonts folder.
  • The file and fontFamily parameter will be automatically detected.
  • Now you can choose your font in the option general->font.

If you have any comments, suggestions or found a bug, please let me know. I’ll be more than happy if you share your All-In-One slideshow with us!
P.S. Don’t be afraid to experiment. In worst case you can use “Reset Settings” button at the left bottom corner.
