A Cool WordPress Slideshow

There’s a WordPress slideshow program that I use, like and recommend.  It’s called ShowTime Slideshow.

You can just plug it in and it works great, but you can also change almost any setting for your show.

First you post your text and then put your images at the end of the post, in thumbnails one right after the other.
Use the thumbnail mode and press the “link to image” button. So if your visitor clicks one they will see the larger image.

Then anywhere that you want the slideshow to appear you add

You get
(post continues past slideshow)

If the visitor’s browser can’t see the slideshow, it degrades nicely.
You get a row of clickable thumbnails.

  2. Thanks for a great plugin. Excluding images would be a good addition. As you can see I had to use an image to show the word [showtime] because if I added is as text it would have added another slideshow.
