For a Dynamic Slider use an RSS feed, preferably a featured content feed (forum or blog) as this will prevent un-wanted content from slipping into your slider. Also make sure all your content has an image, other wise it will show a default image. The Slider will automatically update as new content is added to your RSS feed.
Step 1) add a new text box, need more space see the Two Column Hero Box tip below
Step 2) go to wibbitz.com and add new player
Step 3) paste embed code (iframe) into your text box
In this example my slider is 430x250 next to a 300x250 ad, but you could make your slider any size by changing the width and height of the embed code.
There are some other options such as background music and voice-over (text-2-speach) which I don't care to use.
Improvements I would like see to wibitz
Two Column Hero Box
Insert the following in the middle column text box:
<div id="spotlight" class="space">ADD HERO CONTENT HERE</div>
Thanks to Emmanuel Ace for sharing Wibbitz here:
They updated to HTML5 a few months a go
its way too short if u do rss i wanted to do my featured photos but it only shows like 5 and is over in a minute
..nice tip but not worth it for me
Nice! Thanks Kris.
Only thing I have to do now is resize my blog images so that I don't end up with all that white space.
They do have an option to use Links instead of an RSS feed so it should work but your specific urls would need to have the images on them as the slider is pulling the images from that.
I wouldn't use this slider for static URLs, I would use something like the following found here:
This is working out fair for me. I hate how it opens my links in a new page. http://bridgetobaby.com/
Wibbitz just pushed some more updates
1. No replay screen- means it is looped again2. It suppose to show the right images now and with no duplicate ones3. The RSS will be updated faster now4. We changed the primary colors to fit the player- if you want you can change it again in your Dashboard-edit player- customize- choose color- save.
THe carousel on my website was working just fine for the past year and now suddenly it... stopped. Any ideas why could that happen?
If you made any recent changes to your site, you could undo them and see if it returns, Jacek.
in an effort to speed up our network we have stopped using all/any carousel sliders. Sorry I won't be able to assist anyone if they are having issues as we are no longer using them.
For some reason I can't get the Two Column Hero Box to work right. Am I missing something? I put the codes in the indicated areas and I just come up with two individual text boxes.
