Found a jQuery Cycle Plugin for WordPress

This is a plugin called: Meteor Slides

Nice, simple, jQuery Cycle implementation that has all the various effects of the original.

All you have to do is edit the header.php file in your theme to remove the current image and replace it with the following:

<div style=”clear:both”></div>
<?php if ( function_exists( ‘meteor_slideshow’ ) ) { meteor_slideshow(); } ?>

It does have the ability to make it a manual or automated slideshow and it can also add next/previous buttons that could then be styled with CSS.  You can add a ton of images and only activate the images that you want at any given time.

It says it ONLY is tested up to version 3.21 but I tested it on the newest version of WP and it worked just fine.
