Add a jQuery Coda Slider to any WordPress post or page configured with custom metabox options, shortcode or template tag

== Description ==

WP Coda Slider is a plugin that adds Niall Doherty's jQuery Coda-Slider v2.0 plugin to WordPress using <del>shortcodes</del> a custom metabox on the post edit screen with all options to insert a slider.

= Demo: =

The WP Coda Slider Demos can be found at http://c3mdigital.com/wordpress/wp-coda-slider/demo

= Metabox Options =

All options to configure individual sliders are available through custom meta boxes on all WordPress posts and pages

= Shortcode: =

The short code accepts the following arguments: id, cat, show, args.
id= a unique name for each slider that will be assigned as the div id
cat= the category containing the posts to display in the slider
show= the number of posts to show in the slider
args= the settings for the slider which can be found at http://www.ndoherty.biz/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2
*Please Note:* the args in the shortcode must be wrapped with double quotation marks to work.

= Example: =

`[wpcodaslider id=myslider cat=4 show=6 args="autoSlide:true, dynamicTabs:false, autoSlide:true"]`

This would add a slider with the `<div id="myslider">` showing 6 posts from the category id of 6.

= Template Tag =


`if ( function_exissts( 'c3m_slider' ) )
	c3m_slider( $args );`

to any of your themes templates.

you must supply the variables when you add the function to your template.

	`$args = array(
		'id'    => 'your unique id',
		'cat'   => 23,  // The Category to query the posts from
		'show'  => -1,  // Number of posts to query
		'slider_args'   => array(       // Optional - defaults below
			'autoHeight'               => 'true',
			'autoSlide'                => 'false',
			'autoSlideInterval'        => '7000',
			'autoSlideStopWhenClicked' => 'true',
			'dynamicArrows'            => 'true',
			'dynamicArrowLeftText'     => '&#171; left',
			'dynamicArrowRightText'    => 'right &#187;',
			'dynamicTabs'              => 'true',
			'dynamicTabsAlign'         => 'center',
			'slideEaseDuration'        => '1000',
			'slideEaseFunction'        => 'easeInOutExpo'

	`c3m_slider( $args );`

this would add a slider with the id of myslider and show 4 posts from category 81 with dynamic arrows set to false.
all the variables must be present and in the same order.

== Installation ==

1. Upload the `wp-coda-slider` folder to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory

3. Each post and page will now contain custom options to include a slider on that post or page

5. There is also a template tag function.  See Description page on how to use the template tag.

== Frequently Asked Questions ==

= Whats new in version 0.3? =
0.3 is a complete code rewrite. You will now find a metabox on your post and page screens that give you complete control of all the slider options.  Once configured the slider will be automatically added to the page.
CSS options:  You can control the css using the options and can even include a block of custom css.

shortcodes are deprecated but will still work as before

existing template tag function has been deprecated and replaced with a new one.  The new one takes the arguments as an array.

=  What does the id argument do? =

The id argument is the div id that will be assigned to the slider.  Make sure each slider has a unique id.

= What is the cat argument? =
This is the WordPress post category the slider will pull from and display in your slider.

= Where can I use the shortcode? =
The short code will work on posts, pages, and Wordpress 3.0 custom post types.

= How can I change the style of the slider or modify the width? =
Open the coda-slider-2.0.css located in the css folder of the plugin and make any changes you wish.  The CSS file is well documented on where changes can be made.

= Where can I find all the values available for the shortcode args? =
The full description of the shortcode arguments can be found on the orginal jQuery plugin page at: http://www.ndoherty.biz/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2
