Another jQuery slider (v 2.0) December 17th, 2011
I don’t know how it happened but it’s December already! Soon it’ll be time for me to do a Christmas post but I thought that since, unforgivably, I haven’t posted since August I’d squeeze in a last work entry of 2011. This might seem like a bit of a cheat, some might say this belongs more as an update of my previous jQuery slider post, but as it has some pretty key differences I have decided to call it jQuery slider version 2.0 and give it a post of it’s own. This also affords me the opportunity of displaying some more photos, today’s theme: The Lake District where my girlfriend and I got engaged earlier this year.
The slider differs to version 1.0 mainly in that it can handle content other than imagery. You can now feed it a container type (e.g ‘div) and it will treat that container and everything inside it as a slide. Also the slides are now all present within the HTML rather than being loaded in by the JS. Additional features include the ability to switch the menu on and off and change the slide direction. You can download the files here. As always I value feedback, again I haven’t exhaustively tested this and I’d be interested to see how it fits within other templates and style sheets.
jQuery slider July 12th, 2011
An unexpected but very welcome post today as I found myself with the opportunity to step back from my mobile web shenanigans for a moment and code a bit of nice, old fashioned jQuery which i’m posting here for your viewing pleasure. As an added bonus i’ve used it to display a sneak preview of my newly landscaped garden.
As usual, I intend to develop this at some point, it could do with a loader animation and an auto generated index. But for now here’s the files. Go wild!
UPDATE: This is now version 1.1 – new features include auto generated index links, optional autoplay with adjustable speed, a few bug fixes and a little bit of accessibility goodness. Files are here (the original link above is also updated.
