    How would I go about adding this slider to a static page? I’m using Business Theme skin from Thesis Skin and version 1.8.2 Thesis Theme framework.

    hi, I’d like to ask something. Can smooth slider generate or render the javascript and php codes in the post content?
    if so, that would be great. I’m imagining sliding adsense ads.. I haven’t tested this yet actually.

    I have one other thing for feedback. The idea of multi slider is great. it’s just it seems there’s no way to customize each of them in different setting and style to be showed up at the same time at one page. there’s only one setting panel.
    it would be great if you can code an update about this. in the meanwhile, is there any way I can manually call defferent slider using functions?

    I was unaware of this plugin. I intended to use jQuery and PHP to attain a similar feature. But, now its just install and activate using this plugin. Thanks for letting us know.
