Hello friends !

I previoulsy presented (wow ! in 2012 !) a plugin to add a slideshow in a post. I come now with a new version (3.1) with quite some improvements. This version allows insertion of a slideshow in any post of photoblog or blogs evoPress, nifty_blue, dating_mood, nifty_corners, pixelgreen (and more to be tested). It works in version 6 of b2evo (and up, I hope). It installs easily like any other plugin (download, unzip in your_b2evo/plugins/, install from your backoffice Main settings/Plugins).

New :

  • the code to insert in your post body is simplified : almost all parameters may be defaulted, but if you need to use them they have clear keywords
  • the slideshow works either in the post body or in the "teaser" location
  • there is now an option for full screen display
  • instead of a slideshow, you may display a deep zoom image (using the free script openSeaDragon - included)

See a demo and more explanations as well as a download link there : http://www.le-fataliste.fr/blabla/atelier.php/a-slideshow-in-a-post (there is a link at the top to a french version)

There are many other slideshows in my blog(s) including some deep zoom images. Start there : http://www.le-fataliste.fr/blabla/photos.php/au-bord-du-lac-du-grand-maclu-jura

Enjoy.

When I give a list of skins above in which the plugins "allows insertion of a slideshow", I mean insertion in the *teaser*. Otherwise I see no reason why a slideshow could not be inserted in a post body, whichever the skin... It was worth saying, no?

There was an error in the name of the zip file to upload : I named it b2slideshow.plugin instead of b2slideshow_plugin. The uncompress process produced a dir the name of which was not recognized by B2evo. Sorry.
Meanwhile, I added some code to try to detect non compatible skins. The current version is 3.1

One more interesting feature of my plugin

You may use the OSD (OpenSeaDragon) option to display any simple jpeg image as a deep zoom image and additionally have the possibility to display it full screen (what the built-in lightbox feature of b2evo does not allow).
