This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Featured Item Slider


Featured item slider shows up to 5 Posts or Pages in a very nice and powerful Javascript Slideshow. On the left side of the Slideshow it displays a Image for every Post. On the right side, there are all the Titles
(and a small description under the Title) of the Posts/Pages. The Slideshow highlights the active Post and repeats automatically after getting to the 5th Post. You have a powerful Administration Area to adjust the
whole Layout of the Slideshow. Inserting new Posts/Pages now is as easy as can be. Just choose “Feature in WP-Content Slideshow” when editing a post or a page.

  • Titles and small description
  • Navigation possibility (when hitting a Title the Image appears)
  • Image for every different Post (No need for timthumb anymore!)
  • Support both posts and Pages now!
  • Powerful Administration for Posts and Styles of the Slideshow
