Is it possible to feature an image slideshow (that auto-plays) in a blog post? Until now I have only inserted photos into blog posts using the default WordPress uploader (in the toolbar).
Just to be clear, I’m not talking about the small thumbnail at the top-right of the blog post but rather a slideshow that can sit inbetween paragraphs of text.
Thanks in advance.
As far as I know there isn’t any kind of shortcode or anything for it so you would need to use a plugin like: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nextgen-gallery/
Has anyone successfully used Next Gen with the Coalition theme? I’m having some issues.
On the nextgen gallery option page go to the “Gallery” tab and select “thumbnails” instead of “slideshow” and deactivate “use slideshow” checkbox and ajax navigation. In the “Effect” option tab use the custom effect option and enter following code in the textbox below:
The output will be a gallery with small thumbnails – the images will open in the prettyphoto lightbox.
