Description

The Slides plugin adds the ability to easily integrate sliding presentations, consisting of slides, into your website. Your Slides presentation optionally displays a numbered or bulleted list of slides for easy navigation and the ability to manually or auto-advance. Slides supports multiple groups of slide presentations. Each slide presentation may contain unlimited slides. Slides are made by selecting a slide layout, selecting an image to use in the layout, then adding content in the WYSIWYG editor. The WYSIWYG editor is provided when adding/editing each individual slide so you may easily customize the look and feel of the slide even with little to no HTML knowledge, just like a normal WordPress post or page is created.

Slides is great for creating presentations of information such as telling a story, presenting news, or giving tutorial walkthroughs. Any information you'd like to quickly split up and display with or without an associated image can be displayed well with this tool.
