Shortcodes & Hardcodes for displaying a Slideshow

There’s several ways of displaying a Slideshow Gallery on your site.

Shortcode for all slides

To embed a slideshow with all slides under Slideshow > Manage Slides in the plugin, simply insert the shortcode below into the content of a post/page.

[tribulant_slideshow]

Shortcode for Featured Posts

You can create a slideshow from featured posts, each post being a slide and it’s featured image used as the slide image. The link of the slide will be the link of the post so clicking on the slide will take users to that post.

Here is a sample shortcode that you can use for this:
[tribulant_slideshow featured="true" featurednumber="10" featuredtype="post"]

Shortcode for gallery’s slides

To embed a slideshow with slides from a specific gallery under Slideshow > Manage Galleries in the plugin, simply insert the shortcode below (where X is the ID value of the gallery) into the content of a post/page.
[tribulant_slideshow gallery_id="X"]

Shortcode for the images of a WordPress post/page

To embed a slideshow with the images uploaded to a WordPress post/page through it’s media gallery, simply insert the shortcode below (where X is the ID value of the post). Whether you want to display the images from a post or a page, the parameter remains post_id.
[tribulant_slideshow post_id="X"]

Shortcode for latest/featured products

In order to display latest or featured products in a slideshow, you need the Shopping Cart plugin from Tribulant Software. Once you have this installed and activated, you can easily display recent or featured products. To display recent products use the shortcode below.
[tribulant_slideshow products="latest"]
And to display featured products, use the one below.
[tribulant_slideshow products="featured"]
For both, you can use the productsnumber parameter to limit the number of products eg.
[tribulant_slideshow products="latest" productsnumber="5"]

Hardcode it into any plugin/theme with PHP

To hardcode into any PHP file of your WordPress theme, simply use

<?php if (function_exists('slideshow')) { slideshow($output = true, $gallery_id = false, $post_id = false, $params = array()); } ?>

Parameters for shortcode/hardcode to customize each slideshow

You can use any of the following parameters with both the hardcoding and shortcode to customize each slideshow gallery:

Shortcode Ex 1:

[tribulant_slideshow layout="responsive" gallery_id="3" auto="true" navopacity="0" showthumbs="true"]

Shortcode Ex 2:

[tribulant_slideshow layout="specific" post_id="379" width="600" height="300" auto="false" showinfo="false"]

Hardcode Ex 1:

<?php slideshow(true, 3, false, array('layout' => "responsive", 'auto' => "true", 'navopacity' => "0", 'showthumbs' => "true")); ?>

Hardcode Ex 2:

<?php slideshow(true, false, 379, array('layout' => "specific", 'width' => "600", 'height' => "300", 'auto' => "false", 'showinfo' => "false")); ?>
