GK Image Show widget is a simple widget which can be used to create awesome header.
The slide images are configured in the Media library:
The title (*) is used to identify the slide but we will describe it later. In general we recommend to use a simple name like “slideX” where X is a number of the slide. Other marked elements are also important:
1. The “Alternative Text” is used to store the slide URL – where the slide is linking,
2. The “Description” is used to generate slide title.
When you have the slides, you can go to the widget settings:
The widget configuration is very easy.
First of all, you have to specify slides used– you have to put media titles separated with a comma – as you can see we have named our slides as “slide1″,“slide2″,”slide3″.
Option Show text block displays title, generated by slide description.
Next two options are connected with the text block. The first option defines text block padding (CSS Rule). Second option defines width of the text block.
The “Pagination” option enables the pagination in the right bottom corner of the slider.
Next three options are strictly connected with the animation speed (speed of the slides transition), interval (time between two slides) and autoanimation (if you need to autoanimate your slides).
