Inline Google AJAX Feeds Slideshow plugin for WordPress

This is a WordPress plugin, which converts the RSS links of images to a flash-based slideshow by using Google AJAX Feeds API.

Today, I read this article, in which that Google announced an extension, Slide Show Control, of its AJAX Feeds API. It shows an fantastic way to share photos on a web page. According to the announcement on the official site, it supports PhotoBucket, Flickr and Picasa Web Albums.

I use this extension to create a WordPress plugin. Let's see how it works:

My Picasa RSS

Its original URL is
[code]
http://picasaweb.google.com/data/feed/base/user/ericsk/albumid/4941292423904624657?kind=photo&alt=rss&hl=en_US
[/code]
and I tagged it
[code]
My Picasa RSS
[/code]
The Inline Google AJAX Feeds Slideshow plugin converts it as what you see on this page (you cannot see anything in the feed of this article). It's interesting, isn't it? If you are interested in this plugin, just try it here and send me any feedbacks or bugs resport.

Usage

To use this plugin is pretty easy, just 3 steps:

  1. Unzip it into your plugin directory (it is usually $WP_HOME/wp-content/plugins).
  2. Activate it in the Plugins page & configure in the Options page.
  3. Put a RSS link on your page. Notice that you should add rel="ajaxslideshow" in you tag. This plugin will recognize the slideshow feed by the rel attribute.
