Hello, I’d like to add the slider (the one in the Home Page) in the pages right hand sidebar.
I’ve tried to copy / paste the slider code from the Index to the sidebar php file, and adjusted the size to “M”, but it doesn’t work.
Do you have an idea on how to do it?

currently it’s not easily possible to transfer the Avisio mainpage slider into the sidebar without adjusting css, php, etc. quite a bit. However you can use slider like SlideDeck which offer widgets for sidebars, etc. out of the box and which allow you to create several slideshows within minutes.August 23, 2011 at 12:53 pm #48420
Thanks for your suggestion, but with SlideDeck is NOT possible to create custom slideshow to be show in a widget in the sidebar of pages.
I have tried with NextGenGallery, but the transition effect seems to conflict with something of the theme…I’m not able to slow down the transition. Example: http://lnx.cogesim.com/chi-siamo
Do you have any other suggestion? Or maybe do you know how to get the NGG transition to work properly?

I know that the nivo slider plugin: http://nivo.dev7studios.com/features/#wordpress allows you to insert slideshows anywhere you like by using shortcodes. You can create as many slideshows as you like, use different dimensions, etc. You can add the shortcode by using a text widget in the sidebar. To allow shortcodes in sidebar widgets, simply edit the functions.php file from your them and add the following code:
Once you saved the file, you can now add as many shortcodes as you want in sidebar widgets.
I haven’t used a nextgen gallery slideshow yet so I’m not sure if there’s an alternative out there. I’ve found: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/easy-nivo-slider/ but it seems to be broken and I haven’t tested it with our themes.August 23, 2011 at 2:00 pm #48422
I have seen that that plugin is 20 Euros!
Do you know something free? I’m testing plugins since this morning.. and they all conflict with the theme! :D
I just need to add a basic slideshow with a slow fade on the sidebar! ;)

I haven’t used other plugins so I can’t/don’t want to recommend one because it’s just a trial & error game. I can understand that you don’t want to buy a premium plugin though.August 23, 2011 at 4:00 pm #48424
Ok.. thanks anyway. If you remind of some simple code of fading slideshow… please post it!
