Floating Featured Image

azurecurveWordPress PluginsFloating Featured Image

featured-image shortcode allows a floating featured image to be placed at the top of a post. Default settings can be entered to simplify the use of the plugin.

When used several parameters are available for use:

  1. image – to use an image other than the default
  2. title – set a title on the image (will appear in the tooltip)
  3. alt – enter the alt text for when the image cannot be displayed
  4. taxonomy – enter a category or tag name or slug to have a hyperlink added to the image
  5. is_tag – set to 1 for when the taxonomy should be a tag instead of a category

If the default featured image is to be displayed simply add the [featured-image] shortcode to a page or post; when overriding the default add the parameters to the shortcode; e.g. [featured-image image=’wordpress.png’ title=’WordPress’ alt=’WordPress’ taxonomy=’wordpress’ is_tag=1]

This plugin is multi-site compatible.
