WP Nivo Slider

WP Nivo Slider

I was not satisfied with my Slide Show Plugin, so looking on the internet I found the “Nivo Slider” that is exactly what I wanted, but it no have a plugin for WordPress.I sent an email to the Gilbert and asked if I could create a plugin for WordPress using the script done for him. He readily said yes. “Tadam” WP Nivo Slider was created.

My idea is to use the post thumbnails, instead of searching within the content of the post for some image. It was exactly what I did. Just choose the category and posts in this category have a miniature set that already appear on the slider.

How to use: Insert into your template file.

The Nivo Slider is made entirely in jQuery (following the pattern of my other plugins), follows the features:

  • 9 unique transition effects
  • Simple clean & valid markup
  • Loads of settings to tweak
  • Built in directional and control navigation
  • Javascript only weighs 7kb
  • Create link to the post
  • Creates caption for the image title
  • Keyboard Navigation
