Please see the detailed list of changes in the plugin directory on it’s change log. And then let’s go through some of the feature highlights here:

New Feature Highlights

Here are some of the new feature highlights in the WordPress Slideshow Gallery plugin. Not all the new features are mentioned here as there are too many but be sure to try out the plugin.

Shortcode TinyMCE Dialog

The new, improved TinyMCE dialog provides you with more options when inserting a shortcode into a post/page for a slideshow gallery. Try it out!

Shortcode & Hardcode Parameters

A long list of parameters are available which allow you to customize each and every shortcode/hardcode individually according to your needs. If a parameter is not specified, the default or the setting will be used instead. See the documentation for parameters.

Galleries Section

You can now create multiple and unlimited galleries into which slides can be organized. It helps you to manage slides more easily, upload slides for specific purposes/topics and then easily embed a set of slides by gallery accordingly.

TimThumb Image Cropping

The power of TimThumb image cropping/resizing has been integrated to resize both large and thumbnail images in your slideshows to ensure that they load fast for your users at the needed dimensions. You can turn this resizing On/Off with the resizeimages parameter or in the settings.

Easy to Use Hardcode

The new hardcoding PHP code makes it quick and easy to hardcode a slideshow gallery into any part of your WordPress website, even inside your theme’s files. No need to initialize a class object anymore, just execute the slideshow() function and you’re done.

    Hey, this Plugin is simply wonderful, useful, helpful and really easy to configure!
    Thank you.

    I’ve only a question: Is it possible to change the fade effect, like a slide from the right instead the shade?

      We’ve added a slide (left/right and top/bottom) effect in version 1.5.1 of the Slideshow Gallery plugin. Please try it out and let me know if you’re satisfied with it. Enjoy!

    I like this plugin very much. Beatiful and powerfull

    Is there a way to use it in the front page displaying the news images automatically?

  3. Ron Odenheimer on August 1, 2012

    Would love to use your plugin but when I try it on my localhost it works oddly.
    I get no slides unless I turn autosize off then I get slides but the thumbnails (set to 150×100) come in as small squares with no image ( about 1/16″ square ). Does not seem to make a difference if I use the ‘config’ menu to set options or place them in the shortcode.

    I’m using the latest WordPress and Headway Theme.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated
