Gallery Slider

With Make, you can transform a normal WordPress gallery grid into a gorgeous slider, which can be used anywhere that you can insert a [gallery] shortcode.

Shortcode parameters

All of the shortcode parameters can be adjusted through the interface shown above. However, you can also change them manually by editing the contents of the shortcode itself:

  • ttfmake_slider: Set this to true to enable the slider.
  • ttfmake_autoplay: Set to true will cause the slider to advance automatically after the page loads.
  • ttfmake_prevnext: Set to true will display navigation arrows to the previous/next slide.
  • ttfmake_pager: Set to true will display dots under the slider to indicate which slide is active.
  • ttfmake_delay: The number of milliseconds the slider will wait before advancing.
  • ttfmake_effect: The transition effect between slides: scrollHorz, fade, and none.

In addition to the shortcode parameters specifically for the Gallery Slider, many of the parameters for the standard Gallery shortcode are accepted as well.

However, there are a few that will be ignored:

  • columns
  • itemtag
  • icontag
  • captiontag
  • link
