    I’ve been using WooSlider from WooThemes in all my StudioPress/Genesis sites (that use a slider, anyway). I tried the Genesis sliders but I’d rather not have to create a post to make a slide.

    WooSlider gives you lots of different options for placing it in your site, from template tags to shortcodes to widgets, and it’s responsive.

    It’s not free, but it is good.

    I wouldn’t technically call it a gallery of pictures, but here’s more info:

    Each slide is a “custom post type” and they are all managed in a section called Slideshows.

    Slides can be added to “Slide Groups” and then you can specify a different Slide Group for each instance of WooSlider on your site.

    A slide’s content can be just an image, an image linked to something else, an image and text, just text, and maybe other possibilities I haven’t thought of yet.

    You’re welcome!

    Which method are you using to display the slider?

    Firebug isn’t showing a widget area there. This might be a silly question, but did you ‘Save’ the widget after adding it to the widget area?

    Yes…I did save it. But I dont think the problem is the widget. I think the problem is WooSlider. When I create a new slider, add images and click on the SLIDESHOW to set everything up….the code goes into the page…when I publish the page….nothing! No pictures on the page at all…Am I doing something wrong?

    I’m not sure – it’s always worked for me. Want me to take a look in the admin? That would be quicker than trying to figure this out without seeing it myself.
