Bug fixI fixed a bug with sharing slideshows to the gallery but the main reason for releasing a new version was some behind-the-scenes changes to improve things generally.
- All major and some minor settings can now be set in the link you use to start up Nifty Slideshows. This means you can set your own defaults like referral id and store id. More on this below
- Customer-only products now fully supported from the following makers:
Setting your own defaults - advanced users onlyYou can pass the settings you want used into Nifty Slideshow maker by including them as parameters in the link you use to start it.
For example, let's say your store id is dizzydebbie, you can save yourself time typing that every time by starting Nifty Slideshows using this link: www.kdl.to/nifty-slideshows.html?storeid=dizzydebbie
Once you've set up the link for your defaults, bookmark it for ease of use next time. You can even set up different defaults for different promotion needs and bookmark them all. Maybe one per autopost blog you regularly use, for example.
A full list of parameters you can use follows. If you don't use a parameter, it will use a default, usually blank.
Your referral id, for example 238582202591969585 (this is the default)
Background colour to use for non-in-situ product shots, eg ffffff (this is the default)
Sort type. Choice of popularity or date_created (default = popularity)
Sort directon. Choice of desc (most popular or newest first) or asc (least popular / oldest first). The default is desc

Page number. Instead of returning the first "page size" set of products, pull the nth set. Example 2 (default = 1)
Tracking code. For example, nft_ss_pntrst_thnks_gvng (default = nft_ss)
Title of the slideshow. Use + instead of space. For example Mugs+with+Thanksgiving+designs
