Project Description

A Plugin for Wordpress is to be created.

Plugin Function
The plugin has to put out a slider (slideshow) which can be adjusted and stored within a menu and, depending on the settings, should also display the individual featured image, the title and a preview of the defined posts or pages.

It should be possible to create several slideshows.

The user should also be able to define the position of the slider with a shortcode for pages or posts, or by using a code for the template.

The slider should contain unique design elements (i.e. CSS classes/IDs, functions, variables and constants) in order to avoid intersection with other plugins or Wordpress (of course, this can never be 100% safe but at least you can minimise the risk).

If possible, the plugin itself should work with the minimum amount of server queries to relieve the strain on the server and ensure good performance of the pages.

User Defined Settings

The following settings should be available within the menu:

- Post_Type = Pages ( || or ) Posts

If Posts:

- Category
o list of all available categories
o dynamic (selection point) – (dynamically identify which category is called and show posts)

- Sort (ascending and descending)
o by name
o by date
o by popularity (Comment count)
o random

- Exclude
o Text field (enter ID)

If Page:

- Which Pages
o all pages
o dynamic (recognize on which page the user remains and (if available) display the hierarchically nearest subpages (i.e. not the last subpages but the closest ones)!!!

- Sort (ascending and descending)
o by name
o by date
o random
o Descending
o Ascending

- Exclude
o Text field (enter ID)

Additional Menu Items:

- Display limit
o Text field (number of slides)

- Preview length
o Text field (number of words)

- Navigation
o pagination (not with numbers)
o arrows
o pagination and arrows

- Autoplay Delay
o Text field (in milliseconds)

- Representation of the Image
o as full screen in slider, behind title and excerpts
o next to title and excerpt

If full screen

- Slider size (simultaneous image size)
o all sizes (from WP and from theme predefined sizes)
 ->e.g. thumb, big, …

If next to title und excerpt

- Image Size
o all sizes (from WP and from Theme predefined sizes)
 -> e.g. thumb, big, …
- Slider size
o adjustable height and width

Output within the menu
• Shortcode
• Codesnippet for theme-template


Please give detailed comments in the files on every step you take.

I also hope that the custom settings will give information on how to build the plugin!
