Custom WordPress Plugins
Kismet Design has created and modified a variety of WordPress plugins including slideshows/slider plugins, financial calculators, YouTube Playlists/Video plugins, carousel plugins, newsletter subscription plugins and much much more! We generate our plugins to work as shortcodes or widgets when applicable. Listed below are some examples of our custom jQuery-to-WordPress plugins:
The Liquid Slider Plugin
You can see this plugin in action on our homepage here. Based on Kevin Batdorf’s work, this plugin is a jQuery-to-WordPress conversion. You can learn more about Kevin’s original jQuery plugin here:
Liquid Slider 2 – The last responsive content slider you’ll ever need – liquidslider.com
The Liquid Slider allows you to slide content in a tabular format. There are many controls available that make this plugin very dynamic and useful to show a large volume of content in a small space. Some controls are: autoscroll through the slides, how long to animate the scroll, whether the slider will have a fixed height or adjust to the height of each slide, to pause on hover, keyboard navigation and much much more!
You can slide anything – videos, images, iframes, and other embeds! We’ve generated our version of the plugin to allow for embedding the jCarousel plugin below, which is great for cycling through a large number of posts, or portfolio items! Embed [shortcodes] from your theme or other WordPress plugins to further make your liquid slider even more dynamic and functional!
The liquid slider is fully responsive. The menu tabs convert to a drop-down menu on narrower viewing screens. Content is automatically shifted to fill the space and the slider becomes taller. Additionally, we can customize the plugin further to change certain controls at different screen widths (dis/enable autscroll, dis/enable fixed or auto-height, etc.).
jCarousel WordPress Plugin
You can see this plugin in action on our homepage here. Based on Jan Sorgalla’s work, this plugin is a jQuery-to-WordPress conversion. You can learn more about Jan’s original jQuery plugin here:
jCarousel – Riding carousels with jQuery – sorgalla.com
Enter custom content into each slide, or pull from any category, portfolio, or custom taxonomy/custom term/custom post-type.
Embed images, videos, iframes, YouTube/Vimeo videos, documents, [shortcodes], audio files… ANYTHING!
Scroll on page load (autoscroll) or with navigation buttons, scolling animation types, scroll speed, how many slides to scroll when animating.
Fully responsive design across major web browsers and most modern mobile and tablet devices.
Based on an article at web.enavu, this plugin is a jQuery-to-WordPress conversion as well. This custom plugin was developed to convert an unordered list <ul> into a scrolling marquee bar. It will infinitely scroll the list elements <li> and only requires that they have the same width and height. Additionally, list elements may include any content, and can be links as well. We have since updated this plugin to animate via CSS using keyframes, in addition to the original jQuery animations.
