Hey. Sorry if this is a stupid question, but can this be used as a WP plugin?

Hey! It’s not a stupid question, it’s actually a very good question.

The short answer is YES

The longer answer is that I actually wrote an article about using any jQuery plugin in WordPress, by making a shortcode for WP:

The article is a bit outdated, but I will offer you my full support to make it work

Great job , congrats



Hi Can’t get this to work on Wodpress png image also there appears to be a script error in your initialisation code that messes up my theme running on Cornerstone plugin.

Can you please advise of correct Wordpress implementation / scripts for wordpress script initialisation / enqueue

Hi, can you please send me a message so that I can reply on mail? If you have a public WordPress page that I can access and take a look at the exact error I will try to help you

Great plugin – but it doesn´t seem to work with firefox at my desktop computer (win7; tested with firefox version 26 and 27).

I believe that there is was a change made with one of the Firefox updates. I will investigate and come up with a fix

Hi, the problem was not with the long shadows plugin, but with one of the wordpress plugins. I fixed that and now it works. Hope this convinces you to buy the plugin :-)

Works well with small images, nicely preserves transparent png edges what is really cool.

Although I don’t recommend using it with big images as it will hit performance badly. Transparent image shadows are not responsive either, but with some css and js tweaks it’s possible (set background-size: contain; on wrapper when image starts to scale [and not the container])


thanks for the purchase and also for the tips.

Does shadow work on fluid elements and transparent pngs?

yes and yes :-)

“Someone written in comments that it works only on webserver, not locally, is this right?”

It works both locally and on webservers, except for images for which it only works on webservers because of HTML5 security constraints.

isthis works on mobile?

yes, it does work on mobile too on any HTML5 browser. you can load the live preview on your mobile and look at the examples from your mobile and see how they look.

Good job! Works just as described. I would only say that it sucks these things have to be tested on web servers since they apparently don’t work locally. But since, for the sake of convenience, I host my WIP’s on Dropbox, it seems to work and I can preview them just fine “locally” without it being really local.

I tried the mentioned free alternative, and it works, but it’s just not as adaptive and customizable as this plugin. Worth the few bucks!

Thank you for the purchase and the support! I’m really glad you like it and it works as you expect it.

ISnt this the same as this ? If not feel free to delete comment


Thanks for the question. I would say that the both plugins are doing similar things, but mine does a little more as it works also for images, it allows setting the exact shadow angle (see 5. in the live preview) and you can do it independently for the box and for the text/image inside (while the one you indicated you can specify only 4 angles).

My plugin also allows a lot more flexibility and you can have creative results like 7. and 10. in the live preview.

hope you agree with me

Awesome!! Good luck!

Thank you very much! It is my first item on codecanyon and I am glad you like it!
