Frequently Asked Questions

= Where is my highslide quicktag? =
Unfortunately quicktags do not show up in Visual Rich Editor mode. You have a few alternatives. If you are using WordPress 2.1, simply switch over to code view and the Highslide quicktag will be available. If you are using WordPress 2.0.x then you can disable Visual Rich Editor mode or
you can create the tag yourself by using the special <highslide> tag. This tag takes 4 attributes:

This is should be the path to the image you want displayed when the user clicks on the thumbnail

This should be the path to the THUMBNAIL image you want displayed initially.

This is the copy that will appear in the ALT tag description. Filling this in is good practice for search engines.

The caption displayed directly under the large image when the user clicks on the thumbnail

Example Code

<highslide image="/path/to/myimage.jpg" thumbnail="/path/to/thumbnail.jpg" altdesc="" captiontext="" />

Future versions we’ll look to embed a button in the visual rich editor similar to how Viper’s Video Quicktags did.

= Do I have to pay for Highslide JS? =

Highslide JS is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 2.5 License. If you are a non-commercial site the script is free. It costs $30 for each commercial domain

= How can I tell if it’s working? =

Try creating a test post and check to see if the HIGHSLIDE quicktag is available. Click on the tag and follow the prompts to insert your first image.

= When using the HIGHSLIDE quicktag what do all the prompts mean? =

The quicktag will prompt you for the following information:

Prompt 1: Enter path to large Image
This is should be the path to the image you want displayed when the user clicks on the thumbnail

Example: /images/mylargeimage.jpg

Prompt 2: Enter path to thumbnail image
This should be the path to the THUMBNAIL image you want displayed initially.

Example: /images/mythumbnailimage.jpg

Prompt 3: Enter the Alternate Description of the image
This is the copy that will appear in the ALT tag description. Filling this in is good practice for search engines.

Prompt 4: Enter the Caption for the image
The caption displayed directly under the large image when the user clicks on the thumbnail

= When I look at the generated code it is surrounded by a <p> tag. How can I remove that <p> tag? =

This is a “feature” of wordpress. Here is the generated HTML required for highslide. Notice the <p> tags that surround it:

<p><a href="" class="highslide"  onclick="return hs.expand(this)">

To remove the <p> tag open your default-filters.php and comment out the following line:

add_filter(‘the_content’, ‘wpautop’);

Alternatively there are plugins you can use to disable this feature.

= What version of Highslide JS does this plugin support? =

As of August 14th this plugin works has been tested with version 3.2.3

= Can I still customize Highslide JS using your plugin? =
The plugin was designed to give a high level of flexibility in customizing Highslide. In the WP-HIGHSLIDE options page there are global settings that allow you to toggle off/on the highslide caption box, close link, or next/previous links:

Additionally, you can override the global settings for individual images by using override flags in the <highslide> tag. For example, to override the Show Caption Box:

<highslide image="" thumbnail="" altdesc="" captiontext="null" show_caption="y"  />

Tags that are available

Flag Usage Description
show_caption show_caption=”y”
Toggle on/off Highslide Caption
show_close show_close=”y”
Toggle on/off Highslide Close Link
show_prv_next show_prv_next=”y”
Toggle on/off Highslide Next/Previous Links

    Thanks in advance

    Paul – this was a bug in my plugin. I was explicitly setting each thumbnail to 100 x 99. I removed those explicit settings to let the browser render the dimensions. This will allow you to use different sized plugins. Download the latest version (1.0) for this fix.

    Hey…another little problem…if you check this page where the plugin is activated… the bigger picture opens at the bottom of the screen and the style of the surrounding box seems to be messed up…any idea why?

    Paul it’s likely another javascript or css is conflicting with highslide. As a test, try disabling all your plugins and ensure all script and css references are commented out. See if that fixes the problem. If so, you can begin to enable each plugin to try to isolate the issue

  11. Alex Says:

    Though the initial Highslide JS script works on IE7, for some reason the plugin doesn’t work well with IE 7 (it opens up a new window instead of the enlarging effect in firefox.) I’m supposing IE may be ignoring “return false”. Is there any way I can make it work? I’m really preferring this new plugin to the past lightbox plugins. Sorry for the inconvenience and pardon my bad english.

    Alex – I just ran the demo at in IE 7 and it worked fine. I’m running IE 7.0.5730.11CO. What version are you running? And did you try the demo above?

  14. Sébastien Says:

    Hi, thanks for the plugin, works great!

    I made a slight modification you may ne interested in.
    In wp-lightbox.php, around line 88, when you compute a random number to get an unique THUMBID, I replaced that by appending the md5 hash of the image url:

    $val = ‘P’ . $post->ID . md5($o[‘image’]) ;

    My understanding is the random number you append to the post ID is just so you get a unique thumb ID. The problem I saw with the random number thing is you get a new ID every single time this is run, including every single time the RSS feed is loaded. That is causing a problem to some RSS readers, they detect the posts containing an image has changed and keep marking them as new. Many RSS readers have the option to ignore updated posts but not all of them, and some people like to be notified when a post is modified and won’t use that option.
    Appending the md5 of the image url guarantees uniqueness and does not change each time the page is loaded. Taking the md5 of the image+the thumb+the description might be safer, though. Anyways, works for me.

    Thanks again for the great plugin.

    Sébastien: Thanks so much for the feedback. I did not know this method caused issues with RSS readers.

    I tried using the md5 and unfortunately the CLOSE link doesn’t display when I use that. However, I realized there is even a simpler solution. I can just use the post id and the variable $i which is the loop iterator:

    $val = ‘P’ . $post->ID . $i;

    That should always be unique. I released this as version 1.21. Thanks again for pointing this out. Also, great photos on blog – they are amazing. I wish we had half your talent, it would come in handy for the cake photos we have to take for my wife’s specialty cake shop.

    Yikes, I’m a bit overwhelmed seeing the link to my blog as an example of how your plugin works. It was a quick post and not fancy-schmancy at all so I hope it does justice to how the plugin basically works. This weekend I plan to check out some of the other options in your plugin so check back for more than just the default settings!

    Larry, I haven’t done much customization either. With highslide you can create custom skins and overlays which I have yet to attempt. Let me know if you come across any issues…

  20. Leo Says:

    Hi. I was just wondering how to make a row of pictures in wordpress, especially when using highslide plugin.
    Leo – surround your tag with:

    <div class="thumbnail">
    <highslide .... >

    Where thumbnail is defined as:

    			float: left;
    			width: 120px;
    			margin-left: 0 15px 15px 0;
    			/*border: 1px solid #999;*/

  24. brucenico Says:

    Well, that’s a coooooool plugin… ;-)
    It would be interesting to offer a thumbnail generation (with this, you’ll just have to upload your full-size image, without care about the thumbnails name and location), but I’m not sure that’s in the scope of the plugin.

    Thanks. Yeah that is a good idea for a future feature

  25. baptiste Says:

    Hi !

    I would like to know if it will be possible in the future to have the html extension to display html or flash content ?


    Baptiste – I assume you are referring to the new functionality offered in the latest version of Highslide. I haven’t look at the new functionality yet, but I’ll put it on my list of things to do :)

  26. vicrry Says:

    When I click to enlarge an image while you viewing another one, two frames viewing the full-size of it’s photo are laying on each other, usually the former one being covered. Seems there’s a single handler on the keyboard events … and no focus changing among frames.
    Maybe a callback closing the opening frame that triggers when a frame opens would solve.
    Vicrry – that’s by design. The former frame should always be covered, and the newest image should take precedence. There may be a way to configure highslide to automatically close the former image, we’d have to talk to the creator

    Also, when I click on the wedding cake photo on this page, I found a weird display on the title contains a line break on firefox. It seems some border or oversized background becoming transparent.
    Good catch. I adjusted .highslide-caption height parameter to 40px to remove the transparency gap
    Afterall, the plug-in is just impressive and fantastic!

    I appreciate your comments. Thanks for the feedback.

  27. Julien Says:

    thanks for this great plugin, could you tell me if it’s possible to link other thing that image (jpg etc) ? like php or html web page ? thanks !

    Julien – I believe the latest version of highslide allows you to link to html pages. I have not tested it with my plugin. Let me know if you are successfully able to get it to work.



  28. Eddie Says:

    Great plugin. Is there any way to use the same image for both the full size and thumbnail image? I generally optimize all my images for the web, so they aren’t big in size. I’d like to use the same image for the thumbnail image, but just be able to specify the size of the thumbnail (so it fits nicely on the page) without having to create 2 images each time. Is there any way to do that?



    I don’t expose the ability to specify the size of the thumbnail through the plugin, but you can code it yourself once you have the plugin installed. It would look something like this:

    <a href="" class="highslide" onclick="return hs.expand(this)" rel="nofollow">
    <img src="" width="100" height="100" id="P180" title="Corpse Bride Wedding Cake" /></a>

    I’ll look to expose this in future versions

    Have a question though – I want to have my text wrap around my highslide image. So I added in a div tag around it, with styling padding the way I want it and all. Wonderful.

    However, everytime I edit that page again, WP turns my div into a P screwing everyhing up.

    I know this is not an issue with wp-highslide specifically, but I was hoping you had some experience with it!



    Yeah wordpress is a pain in visual mode. I turned off the visual editor and have not had any problems. I would imagine there is a better way especially if you enjoy using the visual editor – any have any tips?

    even you have the problem on this page.

    keep going, thx 2046

    Good catch. I fixed it in version 1.26

  47. Brady Says:

    I found HighSlide a while back and think it’s a great plugin for any site. I’m glad to see someone’s done the legwork to make it useful in WordPress.

    I’m having a couple of problems though. I’ve been embedding WMV videos on my Word Press site using the CoolPlayer plugin and when I click on an image to expand it in Firefox, I still see the video controls showing through the photo. Also, when I mouseover my thumbnails in IE7, they all shift around in different ways by a few pixels.

  48. Brady Says:

    I figured out the thumbnails jumping around. It was a border issue in CSS. I thought the other issue might be resolved with z-index, but HighSlide already has it set at 1001.

    Someone above commented about HighSlide opening one picture on top of another. If you’d prefer to have only one image open at a time, HighSlide (version 3.2.7) will auto-close the first to open the second if you configure highslide.js line 38 to “allowMultipleInstances: false,”

Doesn’t do this on any other os/browser combination that I’ve found.

    Matt – if you get the chance post your issue on the Highslide Forum to notify the highslide developer. It’s likely an issue with the highslide javascript

    only thing is that the ‘topics’ listing automatically generated by wordpress now seems to be misplaced (should go below the images somehow?):

    Topics: Artwork | Edit |

    now it just follows the images. Is there a way to just get it below at the bottom of the post like it used to be?


    Yes Mark – at the end of the last thumbnail closing </div> add the following code:

    <div style="clear:both"></div>

    Hey there! I’d just like to say that WP-Highslide works for me under WordPress 2.5, and I’ve noted so at the WordPress Codex list over working plugins.

    Thanks Niklas. I’ve experienced the same success as well. Thanks for updating Codex

  68. baron Says:

    thanks for plugin, perfect

  69. cybereality Says:

    Nice work man, works like a charm in WP 2.5.

    Its giving me waaaaay better performance than any of the flash galleries I’ve tried. In fact, I don’t think it could really get any faster. This has saved me a lot of time, thanks.

  70. cybereality Says:

    One question: how do I disable or re-skin the default rounded-white graphic around the image? I tried looking through the source files but I just cannot find where it is getting the graphic from. Thanks.

    Check out the documentation here

  71. cybereality Says:

    Nevermind, I just figured it out. I couldn’t find where to set it in the wordpress plugin, but I was able to edit the highslide.js file to my liking.

    In the highslide.js file you have the set the variable ‘outlineType’ to something different, like ‘drop-shadow’. But after you do that, you also need to remove ‘outlineType’ from the ‘overrides’ array listed below it (this is what was tripping me up). This will force it to use the ‘outlineType’ you set in the javascript. Otherwise the wordpress plugin will make it rounded-white by default. I assume there is a way to customize it without resorting to hacking the javascript, but it worked for me. Again, the solution above is most likely the hackish work-around, but hey, it works!

    Note: You do NOT have to hack highslide.js to set the different outlinetypes. In the plugins menu there is a javascript window which lets you change the outline types per the Highslide documentation

    Thank you for this awesome plugin.
    it’s work well with pictures. but not with flash movie (swf). the thumbnail appear in the place of the movie. What are the good quicktag for flash movie in highslide and parameters to obtain the good width and height ?
    The problem is probably the same for calling a external web page.
    thanks for your help.

    Merci pour cet excellent plugin. Afficher les images en fenêtre modale avec wp-highslide est un régal. Mais par contre mes animations Flash ne s’affichent pas. Quels sont les quicktags et paramêtres largeur et hauteur adéquats pour permettre d’afficher mes animations avec wp-highslide ?
    As-tu des exemples de syntaxe ?
    Le problème de largeur et hauteur se pose également pour les page web externes.
    Merci de ta réponse.


  88. Michael Says:

    Hello! Is there a way I can use Highslide outside the post? I’d like to include it in my Single.php Post Template and use custom-keys to identify the images/thumbnails.

    Is there a PHP-style line I can use instead of the quicktag, for use in a template?

    Thanks!! Awesome plugin.

    Absolutely you can use it outside of your post. I use it here in our cake gallery. Visit the highslide tutorial page to find the markup required to do this –>

  89. Val Says:

    Just checking in to see if Highslide is compatible with the latest version of WordPress – I believe we’re up to version 2.6.2 as of September 20, 2008.

    Also, does anyone know of someone who will install and tweak this plubin for me? I want to use it on a WordPress blog.

    Thanks in advance. This looks like an amazing script/plugin.

  90. webmaster Says:

    Val – This blog is running version 2.6.2 with highslide version 3.3.3.

    I have the plugin works really cool, I am created pages.. not posts in wordpress and adding it there. I am having one problem
    The Zoom graphic for + doesnt appear and if I look in my logs it says
    /mypage/graphics/zoomin.cur is erroring out… how do i get my pages to see the zoomin.cur and where is it hehe:)

  92. julie Says:

    i figured it out by changing the highslide.css to the location of zoomin.cur, hope thats the right way:)

  94. hellows Says:

    I can not get this to work on latest wordpress. It is so confusing. All the plugin names are so similar highslide JS? I thought this was your plugin? And you ask me to go to another website to download H JS.js

    Hellows – I’m sorry you are confused. My plugin integrates highslide.js with wordpress. I do not include highslide.js with the plugin because YOU MUST pay for it if you are using it for commercial purposes. Therefore, to honor the authors license, I’ve asked users to download it for themselves from the highslide site

  95. Maxxon Says:

    Hi. Your plugin is just great. This JS is far better in my opinion than Lightbox, Lightwindow, etc.
    I would like to know about flash. Is there a way to insert it with just a quicktag?
    And if there is no such then is there an easy way of doing this?

    Highslide does support SWF, but I have not added support through quicktags.

  96. Simon Says:

    I am using this on 2.6.3 and it seems to break RSS feeds. The post summary is truncated wherever the first highslide image appears in your post, followed by […].

    I did not know about this issue. Thanks for informing me. Do you happen to know what HTML is causing issues?

    For the wysiwyg editor to not eat this up, don’t you need to use code:

    I can tell you “no” AgencyDivision is not using HIghSlide. Instead, it is using the jQuery Cycle Plugin. I assume you are asking about the scrolling key images in the topmost 1/3rd of the webpage….
