Coming Soon: RG Nivoslider 0

During my years of creating WordPress sites, I’ve always had the problem with people wanting one (or more) slideshows on there website, wanting to add images to it themselves, but they didn’t had the slightest clue how to resize/crop an image.

I’ve looked at a lot of plugins and most of them had some things I liked, but also some things I didn’t.
They could crop, but they only supported one slideshow.Or they supported multiple slideshows, but where really hard to set up properly.
Or they included the JavaScript/CSS in a really bad way.

So finally, I decided to build a plugin myself!

And I called it:

RG Nivoslider

For this slideshow I set myself a few requirements:

  • Easy to add slides
  • Build in crop function
  • Support multiple slideshows
  • Use build in enqueue functions for JavaScript and CSS files

Also I would like to meet the following wishes:

  • Style it so it looks like it’s a build in functionality of WordPress
  • Support multiple languages

And truth be told, I’m getting there.
Most of the functions are now build and working, so it’s really a matter of working out the bugs and version 1 of RG Nivoslider should be ready to go online!

So check back here soon, for more information about RG Nivoslider!
