Simple JS SlideShow


Display a javascript slideshow based on JonDesign’s SmoothGallery.

I’ve made it for my own needs, to have a slideshow doing what I want and without too much parameters.

It’s possible to customize the number of pictures displayed and its size. It’s also possible to add some custom CSS.

For each pictures you can set a title, a legend, the picture URL and a link.

Available languages:

  • English
  • French

Live demo:

Known issue:

  • when setting only one picture in the slideshow, the picture is not displayed 🙁


  • First admin page : general options
  • Second admin page : slideshow content


  1. Download the zip file of the plugin and extract it on your computer
  2. Upload the directory simple_js_slideshow to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  4. Place <?php if(function_exists('sjss_display_slideshow')) { sjss_display_slideshow(); } ?> in your templates
  5. You can use is_home() in the if statement to display the slideshow only on the homepage


What languages are available?

For now, only English and French are available

Will you add some awesome features?

Not now, I want to keep it very simple, but if you have an amazing idea, let me know !
