    Hi all,

    myself: Intermediate but not full blooded programmer, "advanced beginner" at HTML, CSS and WordPress.

    My problem: Building a page using WordPress right now, would like to use WP Slimbox 2 to display single images and slideshows. I successfully installed WP Slimbox 2 in wordpress; I see the awesomely detailed settings menu and love it…

    …but for the life of me and despite reading everything I can find on the net I can’t figure out how to actually use the slideshow in a post or page! It seems everyone just knows, so no one ever asks or explains the basic "how to get started" other than relatively roughly (for anyone not in the "know" at least).

    Maybe I am overlooking something really simple here, forgive me if that is the case, but I can’t see how to do that. If there’s a tutorial somewhere that explains step by step how to actually use WP Slimbox 2, please tell me where… the ones I have found do not tell me enough to really understand, unfortunately.

    Please enlighten me!






    Sorry for the slow response, I’ve been busy.

    Unfortunately I haven’t had a chance to write up a user guide, most people don’t seem to need one, but with the enhancements and advanced features I’m planning to implement in the next release I think it’ll be about time I finally do that.

    The simplest way to make use of slimbox is to activate the autoload feature, then in your post insert a link to an image you want to display with slimbox, and inside the <a> tags you insert an image that points to the thumbnail you’d like displayed in your post.

    Here’s an example (I’d recommend doing this in HTML and not Visual editing mode):
    <a href="imageURL"><img src="thumbnailURL"/></a>
