I am building a website for a client using Piwigo. http://lighthousedesign.net/siteproof/endangeredarts/
I have read through the forums trying to find a plug in or solution for adding a slideshow to the home page that I created with the Additional Pages plugin, including this thread: http://fr.piwigo.org/forum/viewtopic.ph … 5&p=1. When I follow the procedure described in that thread, all I get is a blank page. I have not been able to find any other solutions that work either.
I have figured out how to add a Nivo slider to the home page, but I do not want my client to have to edit the Home Page code. So I have created an album called "Slideshow". My client will only have to add photos to that album and they will automatically display in the slideshowon the home page.
I need help writing a Personal plugin that will call the photos from the album "Slideshow" into my Nivo slider. I am using Piwigo 2.4.1.
Thanks in advance!

if you wait a few days there will be an update of Extended Description with such a feature
2.4.d is released, with the tag
[slider album=xx nb_images=yy random=yes|no list=aa,bb,cc size=SQ|TH|XXS|XS|S|M|L|XL|XXL speed=z title=yes|no effect=... arrows=yes|no control=yes|no elastic=yes|no]
(see integrated help for full description)
I know this is bumping an older thread but I have a question related to the use of the [slider] tag.
Is it possible to have this choose more than one album? I know I can go in an individually set each and every photo from my gallery in the list, but that would take forever. I currently have the slideshow set to 10 or so images, but ideally I would rather just be able to specify multiple albums as a list. Is this possible?
but you could create a specific album (private) containing the photos you want, even more with SmartAlbums plugin
I had not considered that approach. Thank you Mystic. I will do just that. And thank you for the quick response.
after any textarea where it's applicable there is a question mark : click on it
what is your interface language ?
perhaps the translation is not complete
switch to english
Did discover already how it works, picture size has to be with lowercase not uppercase.
Hmm, no, it works with both
Strange for me this doesnt work:
[slider album=9 nb_images=5 random=no size=XS speed=8 arrows=no control=no]
but this does:
[slider album=9 nb_images=5 random=no size=xs speed=8 arrows=no control=no]
Must be my server configuration, that its not working the way it should be.
