3. Real HTML

Now, place the below example HTML to anywhere in your template code that you want to display the image slider (can insert into HTML/javascript widget also). Of course, please mind changing all image src, titles, captions and links in the example HTML code:

<div class="slider-wrapper">
<div id="slider" class="nivoSlider">
<img src="yourimage1.jpg" alt="" />
<a href="yourlink2.com"><img src="yourimage2.jpg" alt="" title="#htmlcaption" /></a>
<img src="yourimage3.jpg" alt="" title="Example or raw caption for image 3" />
<img src="yourimage4.jpg" alt="" />
<!-- add other images if you like -->
</div>
</div>
<div id="htmlcaption" class="nivo-html-caption">
<strong>This</strong> is an example of a <em>HTML</em> caption with <a href="#">a link</a>.
</div>
<!-- add other image HTML caption -->

If you want to use HTML caption, you must input the title for image is “#my-html-caption-id”. This image caption will be the content of any div tag with id “my-html-caption-id” (please check the example with div di “htmlcaption”).

4. For advanced users

To make advance settings, you change all javascript code after the note: “// Default Nivo Slider” in step 2 with below code and change any settings you like:

$(window).load(function() {
$('#slider').nivoSlider({
effect: 'random', // Specify sets like: 'fold,fade,sliceDown'
slices: 15, // For slice animations
boxCols: 8, // For box animations
boxRows: 4, // For box animations
animSpeed: 500, // Slide transition speed
pauseTime: 3000, // How long each slide will show
startSlide: 0, // Set starting Slide (0 index)
directionNav: true, // Next & Prev navigation
controlNav: true, // 1,2,3... navigation
controlNavThumbs: false, // Use thumbnails for Control Nav
pauseOnHover: true, // Stop animation while hovering
manualAdvance: false, // Force manual transitions
prevText: 'Prev', // Prev directionNav text
nextText: 'Next', // Next directionNav text
randomStart: false, // Start on a random slide
beforeChange: function(){}, // Triggers before a slide transition
afterChange: function(){}, // Triggers after a slide transition
slideshowEnd: function(){}, // Triggers after all slides have been shown
lastSlide: function(){}, // Triggers when last slide is shown
afterLoad: function(){} // Triggers when slider has loaded
});
});
