Nivo is the world’s most most awesome jQuery & WordPress Image Slider
Nivo is a FREE jQuery plugin. The developers also provide a premium WordPress plugin.
Rather than spend $18 dollars on something I didn’t know I really wanted I listed the plugins on [lwp] to try them. I started with the most popular, downloaded and activated them and then deactivated each of them when I got Warnings about deprecated function, etc.. To be fair, WordPress did warn me that the plugins had not been tested with 3.3.1
After WordUp Pompey I looked at the code and tried developing my own lazy smart shortcode. Of the slideshows I’d tried Nivo looked to be the easiest.
As you can see, I have now developed a [bw_plug name=”nivo-slider”] lazy smart shortcode plugin.
This plugin is dependent upon oik to return the data to format and uses the out of the box jQuery code and CSS.
When displaying attachments it uses one bit of logic and for other post types another.
I had a few challenges but found the workaround to “can’t put links on all images”
So Nivo slider is now going to become part of my toolkit!
