RokBox

RokBox is a mootools powered JavaScript slideshow that allows you to quickly and easily display multiple media formats including images, videos (video sharing services also) and music.

RokBox provides a theme system that allows you to create your own custom ones to fit your websites design. It includes three predefined themes, a Light and Dark theme and a Mynxx theme that will fit seamlessly into your site design. RokBox is as easy as pie to install and customize, providing an easy way to create your own custom themes for it.

Usage

RokBox utilises the WordPress shortcodes. The RokBox syntax should be placed in the post content in the place where you want it to appear. If you’re having issues with using syntax in the WYSIWYG editor, please try to place it in the HTML mode of the editor. More info about using shortcodes can be found here : http://codex.wordpress.org/Shortcode_API
