Sitecore jQuery Content Slider

The FuseIT Sitecore jQuery Content Slider was built internally as part of our website re-design. We needed a cross browser compatible content slider to showcase our best work on the homepage and were so pleased with the results we decided to release it as a free download.

The slider is configured in the Sitecore content tree and allows for the following options: 

  1. Slider width and height.
  2. The colour of the text headings on each slide.
  3. The colour of the hyperlink on each slide.
  4. The text box foreground and background colours.
  5. The navigation foreground, background and border colours.

It is also possible to configure some properties on each individual slide:

  1. Title text.
  2. Main text - HTML can be added here.
  3. Background image from the Sitecore Media Library.
  4. Hyperlink to content.
  5. Text box left margin, width and text alignment.

The content slider can be downloaded as a Sitecore Package that can be installed in the Desktop admin. You can get the download package here.
