Hi. I'm looking for a plugin that will let me fade between different bits of text, in a slideshow-like fashion.

Just to be clear, I'm not looking set up a slideshow that fades between different graphics. Ideally, I would be able to either enter a number of chunks of text and specify that these should be displayed sequentially, or even better, I'd be able to specify posts or pages and have the content of those displayed.

I've found one plugin that does this, WP fade in text news, at http://www.gopiplus.com/work/2011/04/22/wordpress-plugin-wp-fadein-text-news/#.UHOWlqBKtZm but it's configuration isn't terribly good, and it seemed to cause Firefox to gobble up such huge amounts of memory that it FF becomes unresponsive.

Anyone have any suggestions on how I can get this done?

Thanks much!

Try our Rotating Text.

Hey Sridhar. Thanks.

That looks very nice. Is there a way to style the text to be displayed? I see you can make links, but can other html or inline css be mixed in with the chunk of text?

And can I have more than one on a page?

Thanks!

Yes to both.

HTML in the Rotating Text entries will be parsed.

Multiple Rotating Text entities can be placed on a page.

Hey thank you so much for the replies. And so late at night!

Very cool. I think I may be sold.

FWIW, may I suggest that you show these capabilities in the Live Demo? Would be more impressive! :)

Another one:

Since the HTML in the Rotating Text entries will be parsed, does that mean I can add an image tag and and have the graphic fade in addition to any text?

Are there any limitations on the HTML that will work with the plugin?

How about inline css?

Thanks!

I will move this to the pre-sales forum, as the information might be relevant to potential customers looking for a similar solution
