WordPress plugin Slidermania is like the Meta Slider plugin, but with a lot more slideshow scripts supported. The plugin integrated various slideshow scripts, so they can easily be added and setup inside WP-powered sites . This not only includes changes to the site's source code and loaded scripts, but also comes with an easy to use interface where multiple slideshows can be added and photos can be uploaded with ease to them.
To publish one of the created Slidermania sliders, a WYSIWYG editor button is provided slidermania_button, along with a shortcode system, a sidebar widget and a metabox on the post/page editing section. There are such great sliders as: Nivo, Showcase Awkward, Yoxview, Galleria (free themes), Flexslider and others ...

With Slidermania WordPress plugin you can do:

  • Insert different kind of sliders in content by shortcode
  • Set sliders on top of single post or page
  • Show sliders by widget
  • Create unlimited count of albums
  • Insert video (YouTube and Vimeo) in albums (for: Showcase Awkward, Flexslider)
  • Create for one slider unlimited different sets of options for shortcode

How to use Slidermania WordPress plugin:

One more thing: when you uploading images to gallery, try to ulpoad no more than 40 images for one time, sometimes wp gallery  gives an error.

How to use Slidermania to set slider on top of single post or page:

Insert this code

<?php 
                  if (class_exists('PluginusNet_Slidermania_Page')) {
                        PluginusNet_Slidermania_Page::draw_page_slider();
                    } 
?>

in header.php file, in such place where it is more better with style of your theme. See more in next video.

Not all sliders are good to set them on top, the best for this: Nivo, Showcase Awkward and Flex. Nivo and Showcase Awkwars are video ready.

How to use Slidermania to set widget:

slidermania_widget_form slidermania_widget_front

Do not forget about sizes!! Set them correct for widgets slidermania_widget_options

Plugin is very usable for photographers, because there is very easy to make portfolio with sliders which shows photos for full width (width of monitor) (galleria full width, yoxview, photoswipe). In Showcase Awkward and Flexslider there is possible instead of image insert youtube or vimeo link. All links to sliders demo you can see on top menu:
