MudSlideShow is free software, and you can use it in commercial and non-commercial sites, but this plugin uses Highslide and/or Lytebox to show the photos, and each one requires a license to be used in commercial sites. Be a fair user with the developer of the library you choose if you are going to earn money with your site. In Configuration > MudSlideShow you can define the number of columns per gallery and the viewer to use
Decompress mudslideshow.zip and upload /mudslideshow/ to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress.
Activate the Widget if you want a random photo in the sidebar.
You can use mudslide.css, lytebox.css and highslide.css to create your own style (see FAQ).
You can use hs-config.js to set a special behavior to highslide (see FAQ).
Is this plugin bug free?
I don’t think so. Feedbacks would be appreciated.
I don’t know my username in Flickr/Picasa
When in doubt, use your email in the editor box. It will try to find your id.
I updated a photo in my flickr/picasa gallery, but MSS didn’t updated the gallery automatically
You have to manually update any galley in MudSlideShow. This plugin has been designed
to add galleries to posts, but not to create a link with a photo service to update your
site with any change you do.
I just need the Widget, how can i add something to the list?
Add galleries to te list with the ‘Add Gallery’ buton in Tools/MudSlideShow. Add the widget to your sidebar and set the gallery you want to display.
I have deleted a gallery from the list, but it appears again!
Maybe the gallery is declared in a post or page, and when a user opens this page the plugin recreates and adds the galleries in the post to the list.
What about commentaries and votes in a photo?
I designed MudSlideShow to be part of a post, like a part of the hole and not a section apart. That’s why this plugin doesn’t allow to add commentaries to a photo or evaluate it, and those features aren’t planned for a near future. Don’t lose your time asking for this feature. But, if you are a programmer and you have an idea, I’ll love to hear about it.
Can I set my own CSS?
Yes. Copy the files mudslide.css (how the images are shown in a page), highslide.css or lytebox.css to your theme folder. The plugin will check for them.
Can I set my own scheme for Highslide?
Yes. Copy the file hs-config.js to your theme folder. The plugin will check for it.
What about licenses?
MudSlideShow is free software, and you can use it in commercial and non-commercial sites, but this plugin uses Highslide and/or Lytebox to show the photos, and each one requires a license to be used in commercial sites. Be a fair user with the developer of the library you choose if you are going to earn money with your site.
How can I change the language in Lytebox?
This viewer use images instead of text for the buttons. To change the language you have to change the images.
I would like to see MudSlideShow using the xyz viewer
Contact me. I’ll put the viewer in the list if I like it and it’s free for non-commercial sites. And if it’s free for commercial sites too, I’ll put it as the default viewer for sure.
Can I change the position of the simpleslide controls?
Copy the simpleslide.css file in your theme and edit it.
