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
});
});

    Hi, thank you for this! I'm about to use this in my blog, but I was wondering if you can link the images to redirect to another page?

  • comment-avatar

    As the code in step 3, you can see image 2 has a link, so you can use this to link to any page. Because this tips is for developers, so I will not explain in detail for example code.

  • comment-avatar

    If you don't know how to upload images to Blogspot mean you are very beginner for this platform, so don't follow this tutorial, it's for developers.

    please do not mind I know web design but as a blogger i am new but trying my level best to make concentration on blogging

  • comment-avatar

    is it "new post" than "insert picture"

  • comment-avatar

    Yes, just create a draft post, upload image and change to HTML mode to get image src.

  • comment-avatar

    you can use any image (its batter to use your own images from google photos). just right click on image and copy image url and past in in html instead of "yourimage.jpg".
    feel free to ask me if any issue

    Hi. Please make sure you disable mobile version of Blogger. http://www.sneeit.com/2000/10/how-to-enable-responsive-feature-for.html and your template must be also a responsive template.
