WordCycle is a WordPress plugin that acts as a wrapper for the popular jQuery Cycle Plugin by Mike Alsup. Use the [slideshow] shortcode to insert a jQuery Cycle slideshow into your WordPress post or page.

No JavaScript necessary! Customize the slideshow using the shortcode options and by modifying your theme’s stylesheet. The plugin also adds a custom template tag wordcycle_slideshow().

WordCycle is developed by Esther S White

Usage and Examples

Uploaded images are called attachments in the WordPresss database. If WordCycle is installed, you can use the [slideshow] shortcode to create a slideshow of all the attachments associated with a post. You can also use the custom template tag wordcycle_slideshow() in your WordPress template files.

The slideshow advances automatically and is minimally styled. The slideshow uses the Link, Title, and Caption attributes of the WordPress Image Uploader/Gallery, as well as the gallery sorting options.

To add the slideshow to a post, insert this code: [slideshow]

More examples available on the plugin website.
