jQuery ‘NivoSlider’

A slider with a variety of unique transition effects. For full specifications visit the official website http://nivo.dev7studios.com

 

JavaScript

We should include jQuery framework and jquery.nivo.slider.pack.js by pointing src attribute in the script tag to those .js files.

<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-1.4.4.min.js" ></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.nivo.slider.pack.js"></script>

Initialization script we place in the section of the document

$(window).load(function() {
         $('#slider').nivoSlider();     
});

You can also define some additional parameters

        effect:'random', //Specify sets like: 'fold,fade,sliceDown'
        slices:15,
        animSpeed:500,
        pauseTime:3000,
        startSlide:0, //Set starting Slide (0 index)
        directionNav:true, //Next & Prev
        directionNavHide:true, //Only show on hover
        controlNav:true, //1,2,3...
        controlNavThumbs:false, //Use thumbnails for Control Nav
        controlNavThumbsFromRel:false, //Use image rel for thumbs
        controlNavThumbsSearch: '.jpg', //Replace this with...
        controlNavThumbsReplace: '_thumb.jpg', //...this in thumb Image src
        keyboardNav:true, //Use left & right arrows
        pauseOnHover:true, //Stop animation while hovering
        manualAdvance:false, //Force manual transitions
        captionOpacity:0.8, //Universal caption opacity
        beforeChange: function(){},
        afterChange: function(){},
        slideshowEnd: function(){} //Triggers after all slides have been shown

 

HTML

Below you can see general HTML script representation. To add a caption to an image you simply need to add a title attribute to the image. To add an HTML Caption simply set the title attribute to the ID of a element that contains your caption (prefixed with a hash). Note that the HTML element that contains your caption must have the CSS class nivo-html-caption applied and must be outside of the slider div.

<img src="images/slide1.jpg" alt="" /> <a href="#"><img src="images/slide2.jpg" alt="" title="#htmlcaption" /> <img src="images/slide3.jpg" alt="" title="This is an example of a caption" /> <img src="images/slide4.jpg" alt="" />
This is an example of a HTML caption with a link.
