Image Slider


Pauses on hover.

I’ve heard a few folk mention that they would like image sliders in Glow Blogs. A plugin may come at some point, but it is possible at the moment with a wee bit of work.

Based on You Don’t Need JavaScript for That!. I added some CSS using the Custom CSS module from Jetpack. Some footering required to get the sizes sorted. I would not recommend this unless you really need want a slider.

Could be adapted to provide nav, the first two images above are links.

Update: I broke this by switching theme which removed the custom CSS fixed

swf test

[kml_flashembed movie="https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/nl/public/JohnJohnston/uploads/sites/2/2012/10/rommy2.1.swf" width="500" height="400" allowfullscreen="true" /]

This is a test of embeding flash swf files in a glow blog.

what I did:

  1. Clicked the Add media button (I just hit the image one due to habit)
  2. Choose and uploaded a swf file from my desktop.
  3. Copied the url to the swf from the upload window: https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/nl/public/JohnJohnston/uploads/sites/2/2012/10/rommy2.1.swf
  4. Closed the upload window.
  5. Clicked on the wee flash button in the edit toolbar.
  6. pasted in the url
  7. I was them asked for a width and height in two subsequent dialogs, I took a guess, 500 & 400
  8. This: kml_flashembed ….a wee bit of code… appeared in my post enclosed in square brackets.


I suspect you need to have the anarchy media pluging enabled to get the wee flash button

Aside, I made this swf back in 2002, flash was the future then;-)

Given the width of the post here I put in 500 pixels for the width, I also use a swf with a full screen button whih is probably a good idea.
