    Is it possible to have sliders on pages other than the home page?

    e.g. insert the code / short code to display a set of feature images, either in the featured image space or in the body of a page.

    Not really at present.

    Though you could may be create a new page template and add

    livingos_features_slider();

    This would insert the slider. But at present it would be the same slider as on front page (i.e. same category etc).

    Looks like this plug in may be the answer:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gallery-to-slideshow/

    However I would need it modified to accept parameters in the [gallery] shortcode.

    Looks like a cool plugin – just hope it plays well with the theme since it is using the very same slider component.

    Just tried it out.

    Looks ok on laptop and an android phone, but noticed that on the phone it does not automatically change the image.

    It has in it the options to change some settings, by including statements in the theme or via CSS.

    However it would suit me better to be able to define settings via short code prameters.

    May have a go when I get the time to play with it.

    Author has just updated this plug in to v 1.4.
    Several features are customisable via CSS, others via the short code.
    It now supports multiple galleries.
    It uses flexislider and resizes ok.

    In use on my personal website, I am currently adding photos and this is a neat way of displaying them: http://www.leitch.me.uk/photos/

    How it works:
    Any page with the [gallery] shortcode will display all of the images in a flexislider gallery with thumbnails underneath.
    Adding id=”post_id” to the short code will show the images attached to another post.

    Some of you may find it useful.
