WordPress Plugin gSlideShow

August 16th, 2008 Comments off

As mentioned in the post Embedded Slideshow for Your Side I wrote a small WordPress plugin called gSlideShow, which embeds the JavaScript slideshow of your Media RSS in your sidebar. With the plugin it is easy to link your newest images from phTagr to your blog. It is based on on the WordPress plugin FlickrRSS and the plugin is now available – online at!

Just download and install the plugin and enter the Media RSS from phtagr (explorer/media/media.rss). Enjoy.

Embedded Slideshow for Your Side

July 26th, 2008 Comments off

Since phTagr supports Media RSS it is quite simple to embed a simple slideshow to your page via Googles Feed API. It supports a slide show control which loads the Media RSS and displays the images one by one. The API reference of Google’s slide show control is straight forward and with few changes your web side displays the newest public images of your gallery. Following example shows the embedded slideshow of images from the phTagr demo page:

  <script src='' type='text/javascript'></script>
  <script src='' type='text/javascript'></script>
  <style type='text/css'>
    .gss a img {
      border : none;
    .gss {
      width: 180px;
      height: 180px;
      color: #dddddd;
      background-color: #fff;
      padding: 5px;
      border: 1px solid #eee;
  <script type='text/javascript'>
    function load() {
      var samples = '';
      var options = {
        displayTime: 2500,
        transistionTime: 600,
        scaleImages: true,
        fullControlPanel: true,
        linkTarget: google.feeds.LINK_TARGET_BLANK
      new GFslideShow(samples, 'slideshow', options);
    google.load('feeds', '1');

  <div id='slideshow' class='gss'>Loading...</div>

I wrote a small WordPress gSlideShow widget plugin (based FlickrRSS) on  which embeds your Media RSS to your blog (download). Enjoy!
