Add PHP code

To display WordPress content slide on your website you have to add following lines of code inside your themes .php files.

<?php if(function_exists('wp_content_slider')) { wp_content_slider(); } ?>

Example if you want to display this slider in your header then you have to edit the header.php file. Just open header.php from your current theme in any editor and add

<?php if(function_exists('wp_content_slider')) { wp_content_slider(); } ?>

lines at the location where you want to display the slider.

And if your home page is using default page template then you have to add following lines of code in your page.php at the location where you want to display the slider.

<?php if(is_front_page()) { if(function_exists('wp_content_slider')) { wp_content_slider(); }  } ?>

Using above code the slider will be displayed only on home page.

Slider on a Specific page

If you want to display slider on a specific page say ‘about’ then you have to use wordpress conditional tags

  1. What a great plugin!
    I’m looking for some plugin like that.
    I’m used to use D13Slideshow but it was not like what I had expected.
    But… where is the download link?

    1. @V.C
      Hi I am having contact with the to host that plugin on there site. I will sent you the link of the plugin when they approved my plugin.

    1. @Rudai
      For now Images Can only link to the Post. I will keep this your suggestion in my mind to create banner sections to link other sites in my next version.

  2. Having some trouble figuring out exactly how to install this plugin. If you could provide some step by step, detailed instructions that are a bit clearer that would help. Thanks!

  3. Greetings,

    the plugin is EXACTLY what I want…just can’t figure out how to make it work. Here is what I did:
    1. I installed the plugin.
    2. I set height/width in settings. (added a category name (called it “gallery”)…this is where it gets fuzzy for me)
    3. I created a post in the “gallery” category, and added a custom field with a custom field named “slideshow_img” and the value is the url to a picture I have on the site.

    Sooooo…now what? lol How do I get it to show up on a page? I am totally missing some steps here I think!

    Help? 🙂

  4. Update…still not working…but closer?

    If I put your code () in the page.php file, it shows on every “page”. I suspect that is what I am missing, but I only want it to show up on 1 page. How do I do that???

    1. @Allllan
      As you inserted that code in the page.php file it will be displayed on all the pages as it is default page template.
      if you want to display on a single page then you can code like this in your page.php

      You can enter the page name in the bracket where i entered ‘Your page name’ .
      For more details how to use is_page() you can read WordPress is_page()

      Or you can create a new page template for this page . but i think solution above is easier for you
      Let me know if you have any issue after this.

  5. Okay, I think I am missing something. Where do the pictures that show up in the slide show come from? Or rather where do I put them? I am trying to add a slide shoe of random pictures to the top of one page (the home page) on a blog I am building.

    Please help..Thanks

    1. @Cindy
      You have to create posts with the custom field ‘slideshow_img’ as key and full url of the image and you have to add this post in a category and you have to enter name of this category in the wp-admin content slide theme options page.

  6. Simple and great plugin, i’ve install and it works perfect, but only one think is unclear!?

    Is there a possibilities to get a post title on slideshow on every picture(like
    (using some other custom fiels or by modiciating plugin code)

  7. Is there any way I can make it work on my index.php? Only posts and pages have custom fields and I need it for my main home page.

  8. @David Markland Ok I will add TimThumb support to the images. If you want to change the Speed of the images and fading you can change that from the image-slideshow-4.js file inside the content-slide/js/ folder change the value of “slideshow2_timeBetweenSlides” and “slideshow2_fadingSpeed” so you can change the speed..

  9. @Andy Staple and @David Markland
    Yes there is a problem with the post linking. I am changing this plugin to use Jquery with more options. So you can change it with the new one.

  10. Hello, I am interested in using the plugin. I am a little bit of a newbie on this. Can you give me a step by step on how to use it. I would like to add 3 pictures. Can it be used for pictures alone without any posts relationship?


    1. @Crgo
      Sorry you can not add the images without using post. you have to add them using the custom field. I am currently working on to upgrade this plugin. with more options like using imges not from posts. and adding more effects…

  11. Thanks all who used this plugin so far. and with your comments and suggestion I updated this plugin with more options. And using jquery and added option to link images to website’s other than the post’s so You can use this plugin as Advertising Banner.

  12. @liz
    You can not add that code in a text-widget you have to add it in the themes files. if you want to display that in sidebar then you have to add it in sidebar.php file
    just give me link where you want to add the slider.

  13. hello
    i try to include code in sidebar.php at the end of the file but, when i do that (or in another theme file), it breaking my widgets link
    The code in sidebar.php (back end of the file) :

  14. @akoustics
    Check the Screen Options in your wp-admin in wordpress 2.8.4 “Custom Fields” maybe unchecked so they are not showing while you write the post.

  15. @liz
    Nice Design, Sorry with the current plugin you can show one slideshow anywhere in your site. And all the pages will have same slideshow when you add the code in your theme files.

  16. Hello,

    Can you explain me please (because I m a newbie) where I have to put the code to see the slideshow on my home page:

    //Add this Code where you want this slideshow to be displayed.



  17. Fatal error: Call to undefined function: wp_nonce_field() in /homez.10/akoustic/www/wp-content/plugins/content-slide/options.php on line 6

    if i try to access directly to
    PS: No custom fields in the screen options … difficult to verify if check or not.

  18. Hi Snilesh
    I think I am doing something wrong: only the last image is displayed. I inserted 5 posts in a category called slideshow, I set up the configuration options, i added the code in the theme index.php right after the header call.
    What could be wrong?

    1. @petrutm
      Yes it is 1.1 but I don’t know how to create versions in SVN repository that wordpress uses to store all the plugins. Version 1.0 was built without the jquery.

  20. Hi
    Is there a version coming up where you can insert a specific slideshow into a post? Its weird that there is nothing like that – where you can link to other pages by clicking on the slideshow images in a post. Or, has anyone else found a plugin like that?

  21. There seems to be a problem with the width and height of the slider image. Firefox seems to be displaying the image size properly while IE seems to have issues.

  22. Hi everyone!

    This is an information for all newbies like me. It is required to download the script jquery.js and put it to folder js in content-slide (maybe you have to rename it). That’s it! I think that a lot of people were facing the same “problem”.

    Many thanx to snilesh!
    Very nice plugin!

  23. Excuse me, my knowledge about web programming (and about English ;-P) is bad…
    can you show me an example of POST for setting costum_field???

  24. Hi, this is great Slide and thank you, but I’ve got one problem; it changes settings of my page and my static content isn’t shown as front page anymore. There’s even no need to activate it, it occurs right after uploading it to plugins folder.
    Is there any known solution?

  25. Hi, I am looking for a simple automated slide show of about 6 images that will continually fade in and out and will have captions. Can I do this using your plug-in?
    Thanks for the info!

  26. Hi.
    Great plugin.
    One quastion:
    Why didn’t you implement an animation also for the going up line?
    can you tell me how to add a nice animation (like sliding) after the fadeout occurs?

  27. Hi Snilesh, I installed your plugin, thanks by the way for sharing it. The problem is that is only showing the first post image. No animation, no slide. What could be the problem? I’m using version 1.0 Where can I download the new version?

  28. I have installed your slideshow and it’s beautiful! Thank you for the good work. BUT: The slideshow is showing on every page now. I only want it to be on the first page. I saw you gave a link earlier for another and I have tried to copy it, but it’s not working. Can you please explain me exactly how to do it? I’m a newbie :o)

  29. Hey. Thank you for a good plugin. It’s just what I need. BUT: I have this problem that when I put the plugin into the homepage (page.php), it shows up on every page I have. I saw that you put a link earlier to another guy and I tried to copy and paste that link, but it’s not working. Do you have any ideas?

  30. @Sors
    Add the plugin display code in your sidebar.. it will show the slideshow in your sidebar.

    include (ABSPATH . '/wp-content/plugins/content-slide/slideshow.php'); ?>
  31. @Thomas, If you want to add the slider in sidebar then you have to add it sidebar.php .. i cant say on whih line as you will be using a different wordpress theme…

  32. @Thomas
    Just wait for some time. I have updated plugin. you can download the Content Slide 1.2 in some time..

    Also let me know which problem you are having to setup the Content Slide?

  33. Sorry Dudes who faces no images or only last image being displayed in the slideshow. I just updated plugin to Content Slide 1.2 download latest version All the above problem are solved.

  34. @Ken
    If you want to exclude that category from the blog page then include following code

    <?php query_posts('cat=-5') ?>
    // cat=-5     5 is the category id.
    // Just include your category id instead of the 5

    just above the following lines in your index.php file

    <?php if (have_posts()) : ?>
    		<?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

    So the final code looks like this

    <?php query_posts('cat=-5') ?>
    	<?php if (have_posts()) : ?>
    		<?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

    If you get any problem just message me.

  35. Got one question.
    I know it’s installed (I can see the slideshow code ( ) on the proper page. It should be working but isn’t. I’ve got a directory of images that I’d like to use and I have not figured how to hook it to them. Is it through the custom fields Name and Value? Do I do one for each image?

    1. @Roger
      You have to create post for each image in the slideshow and add them all in one category.
      There are two custom fields
      1]slideshow_img Full path of the image
      2]slideshow_url This custom field is needed if you want to link image other than the post.

  36. Hi There, Thanks for the great plugin! I got it working, but just one question: How can I position it on a page? What I’m trying to do is have the slideshow left justified on a page with text wrapped around it on the right. I have included the coded in my page.php file, but the page text always displays below the slideshow instead of next to it. Thanks for your help.

  37. I have the plugin working great on my home page. Thanks! However, I would like to have a separate slideshow on one of the internal pages (with different pictures then the first one). Is it possible to have two separate slideshows on the same wordpress install?

  38. Using this plugin for advertisers. Would like to be able to open the slideshow_url in a new window (_blank).

  39. @Zelda

    Are you familiar with CSS. If Yes then you can display post from specifc category using following code.

    <?php $recent = new WP_Query("cat=1&showposts=10"); while($recent->have_posts()) : $recent->the_post();?>
    <li><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark">
    <?php the_title(); ?>
    <?php endwhile; ?>

    Just Replace cat=1 with your featured category id like. In above example my featured category id was 1. replace 1 with your featured category id and showposts=10 with number of posts you want to display.

  40. Hi..

    I installed your plugin but I want to show it on my Sidebar, and I pasted your on my sidebar.php but nothing shows up?

    Please help me soon!


  41. if i add the functionality of having the plugin display post title and description, can i call it my own ?? 😉

  42. Thanks for the great plugin- I know others have asked, but I couldn’t find an answer: is there an easy way to add previous / next navigation to this? That would make it all the way perfect, as far as I’m concerned….

  43. to solve the ie image size problem, add a position:relative to the .ns_content_slide in plugin css file.


    margin:0px; /* “Air” */

    /* Floating gallery at the right side of other web page content */

    width:px; /* Image width */

    height:px; /* Image height */

    padding:0px 0px 0px 0px;

    border:px solid ;




  44. Hi Snilesh,
    I love your plugin, and would like to use it on my site. I just don’t know where in my theme template I should place the code. I would like to place a slide, thumbnail slider or larger image above the first post on my homepage only. The other pages should remain unchanged in regular blog post format. Similar to this example: – Tried placing code in header and it covered up my logo. Help! Thank you in advance for your help.
    — Michelle

  45. Awesome plug in but one question: I’ve got the plugin displaying directly under our horizontal menu and when one of the drop down menus appears it appears “behind” the plugin image.

    Is there any way to fix this?

  46. just got this plug-in to work! love its functionality!!

    one issue though: there’s a bullet in front of every photo, as if the post is a “list.” how do i get rid of this? could it be the way my post is set up or perhaps my css? the site i’m working on is


  47. nice work,

    I supouse that i am missing somethign. i instaled correctly your plugin, i pasted the php code where i want to see your slide, i configured in wordpress options the information about your plugin but i don’t see anywhere the CUSTOM FIELD, where i have to go to see these custom fields: slideshow_img and slideshow_url? i use wordpress 2.9
    thank you

  48. hello again,

    sorry, i figure out. i’m new in wordpress and i have a german version, thats why i was confuse.

    thank you very much for your work

  49. Hi Snilesh, this plugin is perfect for my site. However, I seem to be encountering the same problem that Petrutm had. I have written 3 posts with custom fields as you describe to link to 3 images, and assigned them to the same category, i.e. Slideshow. I’ve set the image sizes to be the same as the content slide, and set the category to Slideshow and show items 3. But the content slide only shows the last post (image) when I view my page. I am using version 1.2 from the wordpress plugin site. Any help you can give me would be gratefully received. Thanks 🙂

  50. Hey, thanks for the plugin! The fading is working under WordPress 2.9.2 but the images are not linked. Did I make a mistake or is that a common issue?


  51. hay,,i have follow with all insctruction, but silde show only show 1 picture, i have add custom field in the same kategori post for 3 post but still run only 1..can u help me why? i have download version 1.2 too..many thanks

  52. Hi.. I’m using wordpress and I added a large image to my header using html and added it as text on my widgets so it goes on top of my sight. I would like an innerfade of 3 different header images. What code should I paste in which .php file and what html file would I place on my header text widget?

  53. Hey there, loving the plugin – but having an issue if you could help. I have installed the plugin on my homepage, and beneath the slider in the content area the site is now only displaying the featured articles. The Slider’s settings are overriding the standard WordPress Reading settings in terms of number of posts being displayed also.

    Is there any way I can get the index page to act as it normally would, and just restrict the featured content to the slider only?



  54. Your plugin might be great but your documentation of how to use it is incomplete and confusing. How about some real instructions using screen grabs? I wanted to use it but don’t have hours to piddle around trying to figure it out. Please address the average user, not the tech geek, and clarify how to use this. thanks.

  55. Thanks a million for your great plug in!

    Hopefully you can help me…it has been working perfectly for me up until now, I don’t know if it was in the recent upgrade or what has happened, but it keeps displaying the “no image” logo on the first slide, even though all the images are there…it is kind of hard to explain, but if you go to you will see what I mean. It seems to want to display an image that is not there…

      1. You are AMAAZING! I was hours trying to figure this problem out!

        There was no image added using the custom field, but there was a command to tweet about the post.

        I removed this and it seems to have fixed the problem. It is a bit weird. Do you know what caused this so that I can stop it happening again.

        Thanks again so much for your help, you are a star!

        1. Yes problem was due to the image which you not added using the custom-field. I will work on this in future release. I am currently working on the next version of this plugin. Having features like
          1] Widget Support
          2] Slider addition in post/pages directly using wordpress shortcodes. So no need to add posts for individual image in the slider.
          3] Adding effects right now it supports only fading i am adding one more which is slide.
          4] After this new version release you can add as many sliders as you want at any location in your wordpress blog using template or in widgets or in your posts or pages using shortcodes.


  56. Hi Eduardo, Right now in this plugin version there are no options to change target attribute of the anchor tag. I am planing to upgrade this plugin in next 15 days with more options.

    If you want to add target=”_blank” then you can edit the slideshow.php in the content-slide plugin folder.
    Replace the line of anchor

    <a href="<?php echo $slide_link; ?>" title="Read More">

    with addition of the target attribute like this.

    <a href="<?php echo $slide_link; ?>" title="Read More" target="_blank">

    Change this line only.

  57. Hi I may be noob but I couldn’t at all find the custom fieled shown in your intrustions. Here is my print screen:
    I hope someone can help me out as the demo is exactly what I’m looking for =)

      1. Thank you for the reply.
        I’m not quite sure about the part where adding the code to anywhere within my theme where I want the gallery to show. May I know which file I should open and insert the code? Or any tutorial on this?

        Thanks again ^^

  58. Hi there,

    Can this plugin be used in the header.php file so the header becomes a series of fading images, each of which is clickable to another page?

    cheers, Neal

  59. I installed this plugin in a template with the php code. However, there seems to be no way to modify or add content to the banner. You cannot use custom fields when added this way. Am I missing something?

    1. Also, in WP 3.01, inserting the slide inside the post area of the page in the template caused the column to blow out the layout in IE8 but not in Safari.

  60. I added this plugin, which is nice, to my WP site using 3.0. Added the custom fields for the images and links. But the link only works when I right click and open in new window. No matter what browser I try using. Tested in IE 6,7,8, Safari, FF on mac and PC. Any suggestions would be most welcome.

  61. I’d like the slider to appear in my header with fading images. Can you tell me where I would put this code:

  62. hi
    i have a problem
    i active this plugin in my wordpress but only display the last post in category and don’t change slide
    please help me

    1. Hi thanks for using my plugin. I am upgrading this plugin to next version with more effects and you can add custom images. so you dont have to create posts. just wait for 10-15 hours …

      Also next version will need wordpress 2.9+ as from this version you dont have to use the custom field to add images. Next version will be using wordpress thumbnail support.

  63. oh very very thanks for your answer
    Really the answer I was disappointed by you.
    I followed nearly 10 hours to seek a similar plugin. But …
    I am really happy that you are looking for the problem.
    Would you send a new plugin to my email there?
    Please complete description about how to use the plugin put in the site.

    I am waiting for new version
    Best wishes for you

    1. Lol the current version of the plugin is working fine. I think you are not configuring right. If you want next version of the plugin then you have to wait. I will upload it to wordpress svn from there you can download it. If you want nice thing then you have to wait and appreciate all the work provided by plugin developers.

  64. Would like to use your plugin on a 3.0.1 version, but getting an “Call to undefined function trailingslashit() in content_slide.php on line 30. Am confused also if more than one sliders can be created, within the same site together with its specific location… Many thanks!

  65. Hello, I’d like to put your slideshows in some of my posts, with different pictures each time, related to the current post; not a single slideshow on my home page..

    Any way to do that ?

    Thx for your work 🙂

    1. Right now it is not possible. I am working on the other features like shortcode. so you can add slider in your posts. I think it will be ready with next release in 4-5 days.

  66. Hi Snilesh,
    I’m not code savvy, but would like to use your slideshow plug-in. I uploaded, activated, configured my options, and pasted (and saved) your code to the html section of the page I’d like the slideshow to appear on. But to no avail. Nothing is showing. Where did I go wrong?
    Thanks for your help!

    1. @ellamental
      You have to add

      <?php if(function_exists('wp_content_slider')) { wp_content_slider(); } ?>

      inside your themes .php file not in html section. Right now it is not possible to add slideshow using editor. I am working on the next release which includes shortcode to add slideshow in html section in editor area.

      1. Thanks so much for your response! That worked, except now I need it to be centered on the page, and for my images to show instead of yours.

        I’m using images already on my site so for example, I changed Image 1 SRC to
        and replaced your Image 1 Link with my image link url. But I get a blank square where my image should show in the slideshow.

        Can you help me with centering and linking correctly to my images? Let me know if you need more info. I really appreciate you walking me through this. Thank you.

  67. Just wondering… in the main php file it looks like you can specify the number of custom images… i change this to what i want (8) and it still displays only five?

    Any suggestions?


    1. You dont have to edit PHP file to change the number of custom images. Just change it in options page and click on save button. When you save the custom images input boxes will be added equal to the value entered by you.

  68. Do you want to display different slider with different images? on different posts/pages. or you want the same slider to be displayed on specific pages/posts.

  69. Hi, I’d just like to place the picture viewer in 1 page of my site, but have read that you can’t place the code in the HTML editor. What’s the best way to achieve this, or do I have to wait until you release some shortcode?

      1. Yes i it is possible to show slider on one page. But you can not display slider with different sets of images. Let me know what exactly you want? so i can give you exact idea how to implement it.

  70. Running 2.9.2. When viewing “WP Content Slide Options” page from dashboard in IE 7 and IE 8 page does not show the ‘Image Source Settings’. In fact the options page seems to only be rendered up to the ‘Effect: straight’ field. Is this a know issue? It works fine in Firefox.

  71. I have a site over at I want to use the plugin but I do not know where to put the code. I am using a theme called ‘Function. Please help. I want to put the code above my posts and just below the category navigation part of the site. Please help! Thank you!

    1. I have successfully embedded the slider where I wanted to. However, the images are on repeat. Is there a way to fix this? Thank you!

      1. Hi if you upgraded from previous version then Version 1.3 is not using custom fields. Instead of that it is using the_post_thumbnail() feature which is added after wordpress version 2.9 . So you must have wordpress 2.9 and add images using “Featured Thumbnail” you can find this below the categories and tags in post admin area. If you have any problems send me message.

        1. Well, I used to slide some custom images in my blog with this awesome plugin. But now it seems this is gone, have to find another solution…

          1. Do you upgraded from previous version? if yes then there is new custom image options is added in this new version. which was not present in the previous version. Let me know which issue you are getting.

  72. No problem anymore. I deleted the plugin and installed it again and now it works. I’m still a happy Content Slide user 🙂

  73. Hi

    Great plugin, but i have an issue. The buttons or pagination doesn’t seem to work? I placed it inside some div tags which contain content for that section.

    I went through all the options and selected yes for the buttons.

    Any ideas?


  74. I feel like a webdesign rookie but I can not get this thing to work on my page. I have activated it and pasted the code to the right location but al I can se on the final page is the pictures I want sliding vertically stacked, one image first and the other one under the first. Whats up with that?

        1. I think your theme don’t have

          <?php wp_head(); ?>

          inside your theme’s header.php file. just add this code in your theme’s header.php file before the end of


          so final code will be

          <?php wp_head(); ?>
          1. Thanks you, that solved the problem! But another problem popped up, if you look at the page again, it seems to not really like my transparent PNG images. Is there any setting for this or do I have a background?

  75. I feel like a webdesign rookie but I can not get this thing to work on my page. I have activated it and pasted the code to the right location but al I can se on the final page is the pictures I want sliding verticly stacked, one image first and the other one under the first. Whats up with that?

  76. Hey mate, first i would like to thank you, your WIDGET is very good 🙂 But as you can see my website i added link in the form, my widgets on the right hand side are lower than your widget and i want to be on the top as they should of to be. Basically i want my widget at same level as your widget 🙂 thanks

    1. And i found some bug, when u tick the option to take pics from the news and the pic is exact size which u set it up it the picture repeat it self from the bottom

    1. you have to insert

       <?php if(function_exists('wp_content_slider')) { wp_content_slider(); } ?> 

      this code inside your themes .php file. send me link of your website and where you want i will let tell you which .php file you need to edit.

        1. i think you added code in the page.php just replace that code with below code. then slider will be displayed on about page

          if(is_page('about') )
           if(function_exists('wp_content_slider')) { wp_content_slider(); }
  77. if add in “page.php” my theme but Content Slide show il all pages.
    I would like to include the slide ONLY on the home page !!!

    1. ok.. if you set static page as home page from settings->reading in admin. then use following code.
      just add this code instead of the original code. it will display slider on only home page.

       if(function_exists('wp_content_slider')) { wp_content_slider(); } 
  78. Hello, i use custom image and text. Text is wider than picture (right text margin is null ?) and not wrapped. I can only see part of the word…

      1. yes there was option before which was pulling images from custom field.
        Yes i will add it again in next release when featured image is not selected I will add code to select image from a custom field or a default image.

      1. I have it on “Straight” with a 12000ms delay, so it currently looks as it is fading, but it just does it faster. IE 7 is all messed up and IE 8 still does not transition.

  79. I have had great difficulty with this plugin
    1. when I use the path to my images file and images the images are not shown in the slideslow, even though the path names and image names are correct
    2. They will only appear if i copy them and place them in the plugin images file and rename them image1,image2 etc ..bizarre
    3. When i change images in the images file for new
    ones using the same image name the slideshow continues to show the old ones despite them being deleted (clear cache used too)
    What is going wrong here ?

  80. I am having problems using your plugin
    When i direct to images in my uploads/images file the slides are not shown despite the path being correct
    2.When i copy the images to the plugin images file and rename them image1/image2 etc then they are shown
    3. When i change these images for new ones but keep the images names (deleting the old ones) the slideshow continues to show the old ones ..despite clearing the cache
    why is this?

  81. There is a problem with displaing a text field in Chrome 6. The field doesn’t appear, and it messes up visuals of slide changing.

    Sorry, if it was already mentioned.

    Great plugin, though.

  82. I read previous posts in the new version being prepared by the plugin could be used in two galleries, this is even possible now or wait?

    Thank you very much for plugin!

  83. It was easy for me to install the plugin and configure it. The problem i have is when i add the to the index.php it now appears in all the pages. How can i exclude some pages?

  84. I installed the plugin and configured for testing in a site currently under developement. I selected 4-images and simply see four individual pics on the page. Maybe plugin conflict? Thank

  85. Your plug is exactly what I’ve been looking for. Simple and well done.

    but…I can’t find the cs file. I’m using wordpress. I see the js files and images files but no cs files. How do I make style changes?

    1. as there are options for change some css parts through admin all the css is included inside content_slide.php file…. you can edit or add css codes inside your css and add !important to css codes..

  86. Is there any way to have multiple installations of this?

    So I could therefore have different pictures showing, on different pages?

    1. I’m having a problem with this as well. I’m adding the code into a test page through the WP HTML editor, but there is nothing there when I view the page.

      Where exactly is “outside wordpress loop?”

      What permissions should the server have for this to run?


      1. You have to add

         <?php if(function_exists('wp_content_slider')) { wp_content_slider(); } ?> 

        code inside the your themes .php files. like if you want to display it in header then you have to add it in header.php at location where you want to display it.

  87. Hi

    Thanks for a great plugin.
    I have a problem with the fade effect in IE. It looks fantastic in both Chrome and Firefox, but in IE the fade effect looks strange – as if a dark/black image is put between my 5 custom images. Any ideas on what is causing this?

      1. I found out that I need transparency in the images, so here I am again. The site is not live yet, so I am sorry I can’t send you the link.
        The fade transition is not smooth in IE8 when using transparent PNGs. I tried using tranparent GIFs but that is even worse. Is there a known bug with transparency?
        I create the images using Aviary Phoenix, but I don’t see how that should effect the result.

  88. there are some css issues in your website. just add following lines in your themes style.css and send me message.
    add following code at the end of your themes style.css

    1. Add following code inside your style.css file

      float:left !important;
      clear:both !important;
      display:block !important;
      float:left !important;
      clear:both !important;
      display:block !important;
    1. if you know programming then open content_slide.php in a editor this file is inside the “content-slide” folder.
      search for following line

      wpcs_content_slider_limitpost($wpcs_settings['char_length'], "" ); ?></span>

      and just add // in front of the wpcs_content


      //wpcs_content_slider_limitpost($wpcs_settings['char_length'], "" ); ?></span>

      just for now. In next release you will get a option to hide text.

  89. great plug in, i’m having a problem getting it centered. it keeps showing up to aligned left. what am i doing wrong

  90. I use the twenty ten theme from WordPress and this slider. I can’t see the menu. The images are on top of the menu. Any idea on how to change that ? something with z-index ?

      1. I am having the same issue with twentyten theme and this slider hiding the dropdown menu. How was this issue solved? I am under the impression IE7 doesn’t support z-index.

  91. Hey just wanted to say thanks for this great plugin. I’m in the process of customizing it and only complaint is the limitations on the content_slide.php css availability. it would be nice to be able to place custom thumbnails to replace the little white boxes. I’m banging away on it, if I come up with a patch to make it work I’ll post my findings.

    Great work, almost exactly what I’m looking for to highlight my work.

      1. Here is an example. This is my portfolio site and as you see, I made a background image that serves the thumbnails and then modified the css to show a transparent box over the active thumbnail. The images in the top are just placeholders. What would be nice would be to add thumbnails from the wordpress admin tool you provide with the plugin so they show up like mine. My version is not scalable because everytime I want to add a new image I have to replace the bg image in the navigation… too much work, should be dynamic.

        Still, like I said your plugin is one of the best I’ve seen and as close as I can get to what I’m looking for, hope this helps!

  92. Hi-
    I’m new to all of this coding stuff but I’m trying to get Slide on only the header of my home page. When I try to input it on home.php, it’s either too high, too low or it messes the whole page up where it won’t work at all. Where exactly should I input the coding?

  93. Great plugin! I just have one question. everything works great except that the my menu is below the slides. Is there anyway to get them to be next to each other without the gaps.

  94. Snilesh hi, I left a query last night, today at some point I noticed a little 🙂 and now I,ve just been in and my slider looks really nicely formatted?

    Was that you or did an angel fix it? ha ha

    I only ask as really dont know if it was you as just been through your comments and I cant find mine from last night?

    Can you let me know please.

    PS thanks again whatevers going on looks great

  95. Hi.

    I have an issue with this plugin in IE7. The image appears to move so that the left hand side of the image starts in the center of the screen. Can you help sort this out?



  96. I find that when I set it to FADE only effect, the navigation butttons dissapear. Why is this?

    When I set it to ALL COMBINED, they appear again. Anyone why know?

  97. I just installed this plugin on the homepage of my BuddyPress installation and everything works well except the navigation buttons underneath the slider. The boxes work perfectly, but for some reason the numbers only start to display for Image #3, 4, 5, or 6. Numbers 1, 2, and sometimes 3 don’t display. I’ve just disabled the navigation buttons for now, but it would be nice to have those working.

  98. This plugin is great – works exactly as I’d hoped right out of the box.
    However, one small problem: In the Image X Text and Image X Heading boxes, characters like apostrophes are escaped – and the \ appears in the slider. Every time I save the slider, it adds another \. I can strip them out, but there will always be at least one \ before an apostrophe.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks for the help!

    1. Just a helpful hint that these can also be removed by inserting the HTML code for the apostrophe instead the apostrophe itself. I’ve seen this happen on other plugins and this solution has worked every time.

  99. Hi,

    Nice plugin and your attention to it is appreciated, but I noticed recently that you added alt=”image_src” to the images in the html.

    Could you either make that editable for the whole plugin or just leave it out altogether? It’s kind of ruining my SEO..


  100. Hi NIlesh,

    Thanks a lot for this plugin. Its very useful.

    Maybe I am doing something wrong, I am facing a couple of issues.

    1. When I use any effect except “fade”, the picture is not within the frame of the slideshow. The slideshow only shows a part of the picture (zoomed in)
    2. When I use fade effect, the picture is resized to the size of slideshow frame. However, slideshow stops at the second image (I have 5 images listed in the settings).

    Could you please help me out here?


          1. Yes I did that..I thought that was for sizing it so that it fits in my page..

            I am a bit confused – what should the width and height be set to?

            If I set it to the real dimensions (4000 x 2000), I have the same problem..only part of the slider appears on the page…

            Is the only solution to resize all images to the slider size? I am guessing there should be another way to do it…or I am doing something wrong..

            Can you please help ?


          2. i didn’t added image resize options as i dont want too many scripts added to the plugin. As this is a featured slider most of the users create images with same dimensions like the actual slider width height.

  101. how to do that slider consistent with the wc3 validator?

    I have a problem with: “document type does not allow element “h4” here; missing one of “object”, “applet”, “map”, “iframe”, “button”, “ins”, “del” start-tag”

    btw. this slider is THE BEST 🙂

    1. check html added through other plugins. my plugin don’t have
      “object”, “applet”, “map”, “iframe”, “button”, “ins”, “del” start-tag” tags inside plugin html.

  102. Hi! First one is a bit slow ^^ (maybe it’s website itself), but I’m really fond of second version of plugin – it’s cute ^^b

  103. Hi Snilesh,

    I’m having a similar problem to others, the stacking image problem.

    I’m using a theme called Simplo.

    The is there, right before however there is a lot more code after it.
    code plus a menu section before the end of the header.php code.

    The theme also comes with the Pretty Photo Lightbox plugin built-in, maybe could that be the problem? The Javascript for this is located right before the

    So it goes:
    blah blah

    blah blah

    <body >
    body code continues to bottom of header.php code then continues again on page/index.php

    Any ideas?

  104. Thanks Nilesh,

    That fixed the problem. The email I entered is working fine, actually could you please remove it from your last comment so I don’t get lots of spam there.

    Thanks again, I really appreciate the speed at which you are able to fix these problems. Excellent support and a great plugin too by the way! 🙂


  105. This plug in is pretty cool and thank you so much for creating this. I am not versed in php however is it possible for you to stick a target option into your next version? Right now if you click on the slate it’s keeping it in the same window so this is for the option should we wish to go to a new window. And also about the SEO friendly version, when might that be ready?

    Thank you very much

  106. Yes there is issue with images stack vertically when you have more images in the slider. Right now i am working on solution for it by pre loading images. it will be available in next version.

    1. What I did to combat the problem was to put the code in a div and set the height to the same as the images (if they all the same height) and then add overflow:hidden;

  107. Hi Guys,

    I am new to this plugin and want to know how I overlay text on the image?

    Can’t seem to find the answer anywhere.

    Anyone point me in the right direction please?

  108. HI. I have a very basic question. I have installed the plugin in the HTML section of tha homepage that I want the slideshow to be on and am excited to see it work, but do not see where to upload the pictures I want as a slideshow.

    Forgive me. I have never done ANYTHING like this before and an fumbling around. I’m almost there but need a bit of help with this one part.

    Cheers, and thank you in advance.


  109. This is exactly the plug-in I was looking for. There is however one thing that bugs me. I love the fade effect, but when activating this effect, the navigation buttons and arrows disapear! I’d really like to use the effect AND the navigation buttons.

    Is this done on purpose or is this a tiny bug?



        1. Sorry for the type errors. It’s’ s a pity that the effect can’t be combined with the navigation buttons. Any chance it will be included in a future release?

  110. Second thing I noticed is that when publishing content from a category, for some reason the number of displayed items is limited by the age of the post. It does seem to go back approximatly 2 months; older posts are not displayed. Any clues on this?

  111. Great plugin! All useful plugins I use get a donation from me every year so thanks again!

    I have one question: In “Image source settings” under: “Use custom images?” I select: “No, using posts from a category.” With the correct category in question. The posts with the category all have a “featured image” attached to it, which shows in the slide.

    HOWEVER the image is tiled instead of showing the entire image only is there any fix to this?

    1. Yes there is issue with images tiled if they are small in width as compared to the slideshow width. I am still working on the next release. I will try to sort out this bug in next version this plugin.

      1. Great job Snilesh on your quick and prompt responses! I haven’t seen a plugin writer more dedicated to their work.

        Its refreshing to see someone who is out there to help people, Kudos!

  112. Plugin works fine, but when I switch it to display images from category of posts, the slideshow works fine with an attached “Featured Item” but it tiles the image.

    Anyway that this can been changed to fit the slideshow content area?


    1. Yes there is issue with images tiled if they are small in width as compared to the slideshow width. I am still working on the next release. I will try to sort out this bug in next version this plugin. just wait for some days.

    1. I don’t know. My client has noticed the problem on her machine. I don’t use IE and just verified the probem on a computer I borrowed. I don’t have access to that computer now. Does it work on IE 8 then?

    2. I will check which IE version it occurs in. Any suggestions on how to correct this issue, if it occurs with earlier versions of IE?

  113. If you upgraded from the Version 1.2 then Make sure your wordpress version is 2.9 or more.

    Current version don’t have custom fields. And one more options is added for the Image Source. i.e custom images. you can add as many images as you want without creating posts.

    Just goto content-slide options page and you will see all the options there to change settings of the slider.

  114. Hi,

    I have this plugin installed on two websites (on the same host) and they both have identical settings.

    Site A is working perfectly, with images fading into each other (3 images in total). Site B which also has 3 images, won’t fade images into each other. They fade out completely then fade in, at a much longer timescale.

    Can you think of what could be causing this? as they are setup identically.


  115. Is there a maximum time (or slowest) delay between images appearing during the fade effect? It appears whatever I change the delay time to it wont affect it.

  116. Hi, this is by far the best content gallery.

    I’d like to know. Is it possible to have multiple galleries, specificly one gallery on the homepage and another one on thr gallery page?

  117. excellent plugin, just a question.
    There is a way to use text on title instead of the png’s?

    I need to use special characters there and that way doesn’t work.

    Thank you!!

  118. Hi there,

    Really love the plugin but have a question about the display order. Is there any way to make the image/banner display random? That is, display each one in a random order?

    1. Yes you can order images randomly. Just visit “content Slide” Option page in wp-admin dashboard. Under the “Image Source Setting” you will find “Order Images Randomly? ” just select Yes if you want images randomly.

  119. Hi
    Fantastic slider – is there any way to deactivate the slides linking back to the page the slider is on. I have images on the slides that people may click on because it looks like they are active because the hand comes up anywhere on the slide. I have removed any links in each slide but how do i de-activate the slide altogether from linking ANYWHERE. Am I missing something. Thanks again – this is THE best slider available. Cheers

  120. Hey there, great plugin so far. Will there be any future plans for optimizing image rendering? Right now there is only an image size option to adjust the width/height of the slider, so all my images are stretched if they aren’t that exact size!


    1. Hi
      If you aren’t using any text (or you can just have text as part of the image you can create you own navigation arrows on each image – exactly where the real ones are – then set the title and navigation opacity to zero and the real arrows will disappear leaving the new ones visible – and the area will still be active as navigation.

  121. Hi
    I was wondering is there anyone here who can answer my question about if I can deactivate the slides as being shown as links (even if I don’t link them they link to the same page they are on – I just want to make them not active)

    Doesn’t seem like anyone is answering this support post anymore and I emailed Snilesh directly but he didn’t reply so maybe he doesn’t answer questions anymore.

    Can anyone else help – it would be much appreciated


      1. Hi Snilesh – I appreciate you trying o fix this but now when you click on the slide itself the whole slide show jumps to the top of the browser window – it’s half fixed the problem but still isn’t very pretty when it jumps up if clicked. I guess there’s just no way to remove the link altogether?

        Thanks anyway

        1. Hi again – was just thinking that I would imagine the majority of sliders are near the top of peoples home page under the header – what if you changed #wpcontent_slider_container to #top (or whatever the words are to make it just stay at the top of the page.)

          and can I do this in the php page myself?

          Just a thought

  122. Hi thank you for this plug-in.

    I write because I would like the navigation buttons were displayed on the image in the top right.
    how do I change the css?

  123. Hi Nilesh,
    Perfect plugin for many uses. However, my title and excerpts do only appear very quickly during transitions and then they all appear at once. Any ideas? I thought that I may have some conflicting CSS rules but I pulled out all code and still have the same result. WP v3.0.3 and wp_slider v1.4.

    Thanks for any help you can provide!

  124. I installed this plugin and it works great with custom images and links. But when selecting a category it does not work. All I get is an empty box. 🙁

    1. do you have post inside that directory with images added using the wordpress featured thumbnail feature?

      show me link where you installed this plugin

  125. Is there a way to put it in a post or page? instead of the header.php.

    It messes up my theme. Also anyway to have more than one of these running with different images?

    Thank you

  126. How would I go about changing the height of the slider, right now my images get cut off. I have tried changing the height in the content_slide.php file but that doesn’t seem to work. Thanks!

  127. Hi – me again – was wondering can anyone help – so far no luck. I would like if the images were NOT active links – either to another page or the page the slider is on.

    Snilesh tried a ‘fix’ but has removed it again.

    Can ANYONE help me out – how can I simply make the images not active links??

    I don’t know how to access the css and so on?

    Any help would be much appreciated

    1. i rollback to previous version as there was some errors in the version 1.4 . i will release the next version today. which contain feature which i removed….

  128. Very nice Slider! Question. Everytime I do a refresh or change to another page I see very fast all the images. Is there a way to hide this?

    I placed in the header


  129. Hi Snilesh.

    You said you were going to release the new version again with the feature you removed (having the slides link to the slide container) Just wondering if you were still going to do this.

    Also a friend gave me a good tip on how to make it look like the slides aren’t active.

    Just add this code to the style sheet

    .cs-wpcontent_slider { cursor:default }

    It makes the cursor remain as a pointer instead of changing to the hand when you hover over the slider images so it is less obvious they are links.

  130. Is it possible to use the content slider to rotate banners in the header and to place it with different images on a individual page?


      1. Thanks for the response. I guess the solution would be loading a second version of the content slider into a template with different names, etc.

        BTW, Great plug in.

  131. Hi

    We are trying to use your very good looking plug in on a regular “page” or the “start page” of our site. We are using the “Atahualpa Theme”. I can’t figure out where to insert the php code to make the plugin to display.

    Is it in the bodycode? What code do I use to publish the data on the specific page?

  132. First, thanks for sharing this plugin!
    I just wanna put this slide in one page. But i never handled with conditional tags, so i dont know what i have to do! Can anyone help me with this ?
    Thanks a lot!

      1. i think you missed start of the php tag
        add following code.

        if(is_page('Perda de gordura'))
        if(function_exists('wp_content_slider')) { wp_content_slider(); }

        One more thing i think you added the code after the comment form. If you want the slider before the comment form then you have to add the code above the comment form code.

  133. Hi. I’ve been able to customize the Content Slide quite a bit and I am very happy. However, I have one task that is giving me trouble.

    I’ve prevented the title of the post from showing up and instead allow my excerpt text to appear. However, inherently the excerpt text is not hyperlinked to the post page. The thumbnail image is totally fine and hyperlinked. Is there a way, in the PHP file for example, to insert code which will activate the excerpt text as a hyperlink that directs to the particular post page?

  134. Awesome plugin — seriously, I’m a fan of anybody who allows you to create sliders without having to create a new category for slider images.

    That said — is there some way to attach captions to images using the custom image functionality? Great plugin regardless.

  135. Hi

    I am looking for a slideshow that can do the following:
    1. I can add to multiple posts / pages.
    2. Each page requires a different slideshow
    3. Images are uploaded, not taken from posts.

    Can this plugin be the answer?

    Thanks for your time.

  136. Hi. Great plugin, good looking and easy to customise. IS there any way to add one more image – 6th?

    Thanks. Milan

    1. You can add as many images as you want. Just login to wp-admin and go to content slide options.

      Under the Image Source Settings
      change “Number of custom Images” to what ever number as you want and click “Save Settings” button. After options page saved you will see new textboxes added for the extra images…

    1. I am trying to configure this plugin to display posts from all categorys. It is not displaying though, and closer inspection, it is not picking up the links to the posts, it just says undefined. Now if i click use custom images, then the slider displays on my page, with the default custom images in them. How can i show my posts in the slider ?

  138. Hi Snilesh!

    Thanks for a great plugin. Simplest of questions – I have installed the plugin and it works on my site, but no where in the wp-admin pages can I find the Content Slide link. I am using the Atahualpa theme. I have thoroughly (I think) scanned the dashboard, the plug-ins area and the theme options area. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  139. Hi
    Thanks for this great plugin!
    Is there any way of making the little squares clickable – progressing the slides by clicking on them?


    1. Hi Snilesh
      Did you have a chance to see my question?

      (congrats on the new design – its looking good!)

  140. Hi snilesh,

    I try to put your script

    on header,

    <img src="” width=”” height=”” alt=”” />

    but the result became awful.

    I’m newbie using twenty ten theme word press.

    can you help me where I have to put your script?


  141. Hi,

    Excellent plugin, thank you very much!
    I am trying to figure out how I could place the text on the right hand side instead of bottom. Can someone advice?

  142. Hi
    This plugin is brilliant and exactly what I am looking for (I have spent 2 days trying others).
    However the current limit appears to just 5 images… Is there a way to increase this beyond 5?? (My current site would require up to 10 images in the slider). I noticed Milan Stosic asked this but so far no reply… Please help even if it’s a “No” so I can continue my search.Thanks

      1. Hi, Snilesh I tried that before and it wasn’t working. However it appears I was having general WordPress issues/problems caused by another plugin… Once that was removed it worked.
        Thanks for a great plugin.

    1. Plugin is not broken.. check your settings and posts again. Because i tested plugin again after your comment and it is working fine.. What problem you are getting.. when you use post…

  143. this is a great plugin, thank you so much. so there is an issue with the current version- could you provide a little more detail? using posts from categories doesn’t work with my site (WPMU 3.0.4 / Plugin 1.4.1) am currently checking for conflicts.

    also, how about some new effects? maybe a “PREVIEW” button also.

    very slick admin / install. great stuff!

  144. Awesome plug-in! Super easy install and admin!

    I’m having a trouble with the Custom image and Custom heading scrolling at the same time. After a few cycles, they do not matchup well. The header will load 2 to 3 seconds before the image.

    Your example images load perfectly, however.

    I have resized the display and scaled my images to match, but that does not help. I’m guessing it has something to do with the loading time of my custom images. What might you suggest?

    Thank you!

  145. Hi Snilesh,
    This is a wonderful plugin, is there a way i can insert the slide into a post page like ‘about’ or ‘gallery’ not on a .php page thanks.

  146. Which php page should i put the link on? i use artisteer to create template. I put it in header.php and site turned white.. Help??!?

  147. Hello, quick question I wanted to replace the symbols from previous and next slide, where can I change this symbols…

  148. Is there any way to remove the jQuery in the code? I already have jQuery in my code, and don’t want to make my users download it twice.

  149. Hi, nice plugin but I am wondering, how can I align it in the center of the page? Is align on the left side. Can you help me with that?

  150. Thanks for the plugin Snilesh!

    A couple of questions/requests:

    1) The ability to add html/links in the “Text” fields for each image. This would be very useful.

    2) Is there a way to make the headings/text disappear after a certain amount of time so just the image shows? This would be another feature request along with the ability to add how long the text shows for each image.

    Thanks again.

  151. One more thing:

    I was debugging some other plugins and if you deactivate the plugin and then reactivate it, you lose all your settings.

    You should include an option to retain the settings as now I have to go and reconfigure EVERYTHING including the links and header text.

    Luckily I have a database backup but still, most plugins retain the settings even when deactivated.



  152. Thanks for the plug-in. Just what I needed.

    Earlier today I installed and configured 1.4.1.

    Later 1.4.2 came out and I upgraded. The custom images are no longer rendering. The text is. Is this a bug or can I get 1.4.1 back?

    Thank you.

    1. Never mind. I got this resolved. When I upgraded, I somehow lost my custom images.

      Thanks again for the great plug-in.

  153. Dude, I don’t know what to say other than you’re my hero. Unfortunately we’re continents apart, else I would have bought you a beer.

    Thanks a bunch, plugin worked out of box for me.

  154. hey there!

    I really like your slider, especially how you can use it without posts. But for some reason, mine is not displaying my text. Is there something I can check?

  155. Excellent work!
    I wonder why didn’t you keep these plugins at WP repository.Is there a specific reason for that?or already available there?


  156. Anyway there is a shortcode to call this beautiful plugin into a particular page without having to use the php into a template page?

        1. Hi
          The way I did it was this. Download Executable PHP widget and place it as a widget anywhere on your site – place the php code for the slider into it and that’s it – it will appear anywhere you wish.

  157. Hello. First i would to thank you for made this awesome plugin ! I put the slide in a specific page, i just i wanna know where i put the code for arrange this slide in a specif area of this page, because the slide show up out the area i want ! Thanks for attention

  158. Hi!
    great plugin, but have this problem, dont know why. It doesnt work on page. It only shows the images and captions, but looks like the scripts not working. I did all as written. Please can you help with this ? see here

    I appriciate it a lot, thanks.

      1. Hi,
        I am having the same issue. I am using WP 2.9.1. I have the plugin 1.4.2 setup to show rotating images on a private post but only get all the images show up under each other. Not sure what I am doing wrong.

          1. Hi snilesh!
            I really like this plugin. I spent many hours to find this solution, and it’s perfect.
            …except that I have the same problem as Fil had. The slider can only work in fade mode. And I can see a js error in firebug.
            I haven’t changed the code, so I don’t understand it. 🙁
            …maybe another plugin cause this?

  159. Hey dude, first of all, thanks for your plugin! I’ve having an issue with it though. Installing and setting up worked just fine, but when I view the slider on the website no images or text is shown except a white area which points to an “undefined” url. Any ideas on what might cause this?

  160. This is definitely the best slideshow plugin in terms of ease of use and functionality- nice one! It would be great if you could deploy multiple slideshows on different webpages (maybe by inserting a shortcode on each page?)as this current version doesn’t seem to be able to do this.
    Still a brilliant plugin!!

    Nice one

  161. Hi

  162. Hi Nilesh,

    I would like to change the background color of the navigation arrows. Where does the CSS file install where I can make the change?

    Thank you for a great plugin!

  163. Hi Nilesh,

    Really appreciate if you tell us how to NOT let all the images exposed before the slide run.

    This is my site:

    For the first moments when you open the page, you’ll see all the contents of the slide loaded, that breaks the structure of the site.

    Please help !!

    Thanks a lot !

    1. yes image stack issue is still present. and because of my busy schedule i am not able to work on this feature so far.. i will definitely try to sort out this issue in next release.

  164. Hi Nilesh, me again! Just to be clear, what i want to do is have the slideshow in my header and positioned centrally on the page and 117px from the top, How do I achieve this, i’ve tried a few things using firebug but I’m a bit of a novice and can’t find anything that works, if you can help that would be brilliant, and i’ll surely make a donation to buy you a coffee or two.


      1. Hey, thanks for getting back to me, but in the end I managed to figure out how to align the slideshow in the centre and down from the top by adding the following:

        margin-left: auto; margin-right:auto; position:relative; top:117px;

        at the end of the content_slide.php file where it says:

        overflow: hidden; position: relative; padding:0px;margin:0px; text-align:center; width:px !important;
        /* fix all content flash by setting height of container*/ height:px !important;

        (I’ve written it out in full in case it can help any other noobies like me!)

        Thanks again

  165. why is it that my slider doesn’t seem to load the first image until after several seconds? I’ve looked throughout all of the code but see no reason for why this would happen. then there’s the same pause between the first and last slide. am using the jquery.innerfade function.

    any help would be great. is where you can find the slider in the header (#banner)

  166. Hi, congratulations for your excelent work! I really love it the plugin and his features. But I’ve a issue with the normal function of the plugin. I install everything and do set up all but the slide doesn’t works, just stay freezed (with the img loaded). What can I do? thank you 🙂

  167. I am using the custom images style with an image link, heading and text. Cannot get the text to link however.

    Any ideas?


      1. Hi Snilesh. the site is in dev right now and is hidden to public so can’t show example unfortunately. What is happening is that the image is linked, but the title and description text is not, and I would like for it to be.

        Or Just place a link inside the description text, tried that, but any text after the brackets does not show.


  168. Hi
    I love this plugin

    Is there anyway to add get the alt tags for the images to show in the source code for SEO.


  169. Works perfect… with one exception… is there any way to have the slider use page images instead of post images? I’m not an expert with php but tried to make some minor changes with no results. Would be great if this would be possible. Does everything I need. Thanks for the plugin!

  170. nilesh – this is a great plugin! (many thanks)
    1 problem, i have a picky client who only wants the fade effect (none of the others).
    Was wondering if there is ANY way to make the fade have the Navigation,Heading and overlay text viewable.
    I understand it’s not available via currently.. But is there some modification i could do to have this happen?
    (or are you doing it in the next version?)

    is there some reason why?

  171. nilesh – terrific plugin. Saved me headaches!

    Question about customization: I’d like to change the margins on the cs-buttons slightly.
    Where would I locate that code? I didn’t see a css file with the plugin download.

    Also, what is an appropriate amount to donate for this? Time=money and you saved me a bunch.

  172. I want to use posts from a category instead of images. In the settings it says “If you select custom you dont have to create posts.” Well, I am using posts, so what do I do to get the content to appear in my slider? I selected “articles” category, however it is coming up as a blank area with no content in the slide, and the articles definitely have content

    1. For the post insides that “Articles” category you have to add image using “Featured Image” wordpress feature.. You will find “Featured Image” under the “Tags” in your wp-admin edit post page..

  173. On “Content Slide” Options page in wp-admin under the “Image Source Settings” you will find “Open Images/Links In New Window? ” Just Select “Yes” to open links in new window….. And Save Settings..

  175. Another vote for an external CSS file, or an option for one on the next update. Great, extremely easy to use slider plugin — thanks.

  176. Thanks for your excellent plug-in.
    I have got one request
    Is that possible to replace the square buttons at the bottom by pagination number if yes in which part do I made the changes…

    Thank you in advance

  177. When using custom images for the slider,is there a way to make the image link open in a new window?

  178. Hey, fantastic plugin! Really love it, appreciate that your work immensely.

    Question: How do I create a different slideshow for a different page? I’ve got my php in specific static pages, and want different images for each gallery. Not sure how to do that..Sorry if I’m missing something extremely obvious!

  179. As a side note, I wanted it only on my home page, but in the header, so I took your homepage code, and plugged it into my header file and it shows up only on my header now. That is exactly what I wanted. Very simple, awesome instructions and great module! Thanks!


  180. Great plugin. Thanks…
    But (you knew there was a but coming right?) I’m having a problem changing the image display time when using ‘fade’… It always seems to take around 6-7 seconds between fades – no matter what changes I save in:
    Delay between images in ms
    (I have tried other browsers and refreshed eveything)
    Any ideas?

  181. Hi,
    I love your WP Content Slide plugin!

    … and I see “Angela” already have asked – and gotten an answer, on what I planned to ask… 😉

  182. Awesome plug-in bro , its the best I could find for my wordpress site. But I have a suggestion I recently had stumbled upon this( cool web-magazine site, and I was really amazed by its slideshow style, its got a cool fade effect and the timing somehow is synchronized with the line that fills in after each slide. If you could implement this in your plugin it would be awesome.

  183. Hi there, is it possible to use the plugin twice on the same page, with different images? Say for example on 2 banner sections.

    Thanks in advance.

  184. Perfect slideshow – Thank you!
    Wondering if i can change the appearance and size of the PREV and NEXT buttons? Could not find images or CSS.
    Thank you!

  185. Nice slideshow and easy to use. However, I am trying to adjust the timing of the slides. I’m using the plugin through php code…having it access posts in a specific category. I’m also using the “fade” effect. I’ve tried adjusting the ‘Delay between images’ setting but the slides rotate at the same speed…too fast!

    Am I doing something wrong?
    Thanks so much!

  186. Hi, is there a bit of code I can add to stop the images loading all at once? When someone comes to my site, they immediately see all 3 images loads at once, then collapse into the slider and the rotate properly?


    1. Matt. Just add some css to the container div for the slider.

      overflow: hidden;

      That will take care of seeing the other images load outside of the slider container.

  188. Thanks for this plugin, very simple!
    One problem: i select posts in slideshow from a category and i try to insert the link in content_slide.php file on line 267:
    <a href="” title=””>
    When i do this the slideshow appears broken. Can you help me?
    Thank you

  189. Hi
    I love the simpliciety of your slideshow but when I reduced the amount of images from 10 to 5 images the old ones ALL still show unless I’m logged in.
    I tried turning off the plugin and turning it back off again but no change. I have also cleared the cache and everything but deleteing the images (didn’t want blank boxes).
    Any ideas? Thanks

  190. Hi,

    I’ve put in your code for displaying only on home page however I’m now seeing both the content slider and the header image sitting underneath that’s supposed to come up on the rest of the website.

    How do I make the other header disappear off the home page only?

    Code here:

    Many thanks!

    1. Option added for full box border. You can not change specific border using options.

      If you want apply Bottom border then add following lines of code inside your themes style.css file

        border-bottom:10px solid #000 !important;

      Or you can apply different color borders for every border like

        border-top:10px solid #000 !important;
        border-right:10px solid #000 !important;
        border-bottom:10px solid #000 !important;
        border-left:10px solid #000 !important;

      change #000 with your color code.

  195. Hey,

    Thanx so much for the plug in, it works great thus far. Thank goodness for folks like you that make it very simple for people like me to find easy to understand help. I am just trying to center the slide on my page but I am not sure how. Also, if I want to have different slide shows on my site do i use the same plug in to do that? I want to use different pictures for each show. I was thinking of putting a slide in my header. I am using the autofocus theme.

    Peace and Love

  196. Hello, I just started using WP and I found your plugin and I love the ease of it. I do have one question how would I modify the php code to align the slide show to the middle of the page?
