JJ NextGen JQuery Slider is an excellent way of presenting images on your WordPress site. It uses the Nivo slider.
JJ NextGen JQuery Slider only gives you a help screen which is hard to use while trying to set it up. This is a dump of that screen.
The ‘JJ NextGen JQuery Slider’ allows you to create a ‘Nivo slider’ (http://nivo.dev7studios.com/) as a widget or as a shortcode. This plugin uses the ‘NextGen Gallery’ plugin for its images.
NextGen Gallery Integration:
- This plugin uses the original width and height of the image uploaded so make sure the images are the correct dimensions when uploaded.
- Alt & Title Text Field: Provide a full url here and the image will link to this. Only works if alt field starts with either of these; /, http, or ftp.
- Description Field: Will be used as a caption.
NOTE: sc means shortcode:
- Title: Title for slider. Leave blank for no title. (sc: title=”My Slider”)
- Gallery: Leave blank to use all galleries or choose a gallery to use. (sc: gallery=”galleryid”)
- Order: Order to display results in. You can choose; Random, Latest First, Oldest First, or NextGen Sortorder. Random will still work when a page is cached. (sc: order=”random”|”asc”|”desc”|”sortorder”)
- Tags: comma separated list of tags to filter results by. (sc: tags=”tag1, tag2″)
- Max pictures: The maximum amount of pictures to use. (sc: max_pictures=”6″)
- HTML id: HTML id to use. Defaults to ‘slider’. Needs to be different for multiple sliders on same page. (sc: html_id=”slider”)
- Width: Width to use on slider. (sc: width=”200″)
- Height: Height to use on slider. (sc: height=”150″)
- Center: Centers content in container. Requires width to be set. (sc: center=”1″)
