Flexslider v0.5 released

Having been about six months since the last release and needing some improvements, I recently finished updates to the Flexslider plugin. With this release, some significant strides have been made towards the goal of adapting this plugin to fit more applications. While it still focusing on displaying content that already exists (vs creating a ‘slide’ post type to display on the front end), the flexslider can now be used as more than simply a rotating image slider. This release consists almost entirely of user-requested improvements, so please let your voice be heard. Head over to the Trello board or contact me to add your ideas. There were 2 notable updates and a few minor ones.

  • The flexslider can now be called via shortcode — add [ ac-flexslider ] (minus the spaces) to your post or page or other content area — in addition to the existing widget.
  • The post-type’s content can be displayed in its entirety or just the excerpt

That should greatly broaden the appeal of the plugin and hopefully allow it to be used in a lot more areas. Head over to the plugin page on WordPress to read the changelog for all the changes, if you’re interested.

Be sure to let me know if you run into any issues.
