Lobot Slider Administrator


This plugin is ideal for theme developers who need to provide their clients an easy-to-use interface for managing slider content.

To fetch the slides, use the following code:
//returns an array of arrays filled with each slide’s info.
$the_slides = fourty_slider_get_slides();

$the_slides = Array
    [0] => Array
            [title] => Slide 1 Title
            [caption] => Here is the caption for Slide 1
            [link] =>
            [image] =>
            [external] => 

    [1] => Array
            [title] => Slide 2 Title
            [caption] => And here's the caption for Slide 2
            [link] =>
            [image] =>
            [external] => 1


Planned Features:

  • add an infinite number of slides
  • various aesthetic improvements
  • internationalization

Front-end Implementation Example


//returns an array of arrays filled with each slide's info.
$the_slides = fourty_slider_get_slides();


//loop through each slide and echo it's info
foreach($the_slides as $cur_slide){

    //get the slide's image
    echo '<img src="' . $cur_slide['image'] . '" />';

    //get the slide's title
    echo $cur_slide['title'];

    //get the slide's caption
    echo $cur_slide['caption'];

    //get the slide's link
    echo $cur_slide['link'];

    //is the link an external link?
    $is_external_link = $cur_slide['external']

    //this echoes the indicators onto each slide with a class for the current slide's indicator
    for($n=0; $n<count($the_slides); $n++){

            echo '<div class="indicator-on"></div>';
        } else {
            echo '<div class="indicator-off"></div>';





How do I setup the slider animations?

There is no front-end slider component to this plugin; it is simply the back-end interface for managing slide content. You’ll need to implement your own jQuery slider. Find one via Google.
