Whenever I am developing a new website or WordPress theme, I try and look for new kind of content sliders and carousel scripts (that can scroll images & HTML content). Over a period of time, I have bookmarked some efficient sliders that can also be easily integrated into WordPress if you have the skills. I am sure these will be helpful to both moderate and advanced developers alike. Here is the list :-

1. Sproing!

This is a lively script that make your images grow in size whenever someone hovers their cursor over the thumbnails.

2. Easy Slider JQuery Plugin

An easily configurable content slider plugin for JQuery that supports both horizontal and vertical scrolling. I have used this for my last Premium theme – Freedom.

3. Floom

This is the prettiest of them all! It uses Mootools to beautifully transition between images and overall a very cutting-edge image slider.

4. Lightweight JQuery Content Slider

This is another JQuery slider plugin with the lightest footprint of only 380Kb. A great option if you quickly need to integrate a slider into your website.

5. Automatic Image Slider with CSS & JQuery

A nifty styled Image slider using CSS and JQuery script. This can be used quickly by just replacing the images with your own.

6. JQuery Pager Plugin

This is another content scroller with navigation links to scroll between slides – hence the name, Pager.

7. Image Rotator

A great way to display portfolio pieces, E-Commerce product images, or even as an image gallery.

8. Anything Slider

This is a HTML content slider that comes with both navigation tabs, scrolling arrows, autoplay feature and much more.

9. JQuery Coda Slider

This is an accessible ‘Coda’-like slider interface that also allows you to place links to the sliding content anywhere on the page and have the effect (and navigation) still work.

10. S3slider

A very sleek content slider that scrolls transparent, layered content over your images.

11. Featured Content Slider

With this slider, you can show off the best content of your website or blog in a nice intuitive way that will surely catch more eyeballs.

12. Moving Boxes

With zooming panels (in/out) and scroller buttons, this content slider is a total winner!

13. Sliding Boxes & Captions

This script lets you make animated boxes with sliding layers of content on mouseovers. Very neat looking!

14. GalleryView

GalleryView aims to provide JQuery users with a flexible, attractive content gallery that is both easy to implement and a snap to customize. You can even create your themes for this slider if you wish to do so.

15. JQuery Scrollable

The purpose of this library is to make it extremely easy to add scrolling functionality to a website. Whenever you wish to scroll HTML elements in a visually-appealing manner, this is the only library you need. It scrolls with mouse clicks and even with mouse wheel scrolling action.

16. Carousel WordPress Plugin

This is actually a WordPress plugin that lets you insert a content slider into your posts or pages with ease.

17. JQuery Easy Slides

Possibly the easiest to use JQuery plugin for making slideshows!

18. Looped Slider

Again, a JQuery based slider that lets you display images and content in the form of slides. It uses little dots for navigation.

19. YoxView

YoxView is a free image and video viewer for websites. It’s written in javascript using JQuery and is available as a JQuery plugin.

20. Slick Slideshow

This is a slick and web accessible slideshow widget for your site using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (JQuery). The site also includes the tutorial where you can learn to do this yourself.

    I’m really loving the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems? A small number of my blog audience have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this problem?

    The key issue for game enthusiasts is always that video games almost never have a lot to complete. A lot of items options enable you to pull items from the nothing. But it is one more nail in the coffin for NLP, one more reason for a potential customer to not want to be associated with NLP, thank you very much.

    sources back to your website? My website is in the exact same niche as yours and my users would really benefit from some of the information you provide here.

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Cheers

    these are great, however im looking for a specific one i cant seem to find. it has a sidable button at the bottom that you can “drag” either way to display different photos. 7 or 8 photos total. it will by used show 8 diffenent sides of a product as though you have control to turn it around.

    I prefer Easy WebContent’s carousel. They have a simple site builder and just added a new Carousel widget that allows you to link to related content and attach an image and description to each addition. It’s easy to use and has custom style options.

    I prefer the Menucool Javascript Image Slider. It has 17 transition effects, and uses pure javascript (No jQuery, no YUI!, …) and only sized 13KB.

    • Olivier left a comment on April 4, 2012 at 1:06 pm |

      After trying everything above, I found your recommendation to be the most suitable.
      Lightweight, independent and very cool transition effects.

    Thank you for sharing these collection of sliders,
    Reading the comments below I was surprised to find references to http://www.flashxml.net. I know this website very well, I even use some of their components on my website and I am very pleased, I recommend it. You should take a look, too.

    Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I’m very glad to see such great information being shared freely out there.

  47. Cathy left a comment on June 17, 2011 at 5:49 am |

    Hey,

    Nice collection! I would recommend also this slider: http://www.flashxml.net/magnetic-photo-slider.html I think it is a bit different from what the web generally offers. It can also be customized according to one’s will.

    Nice article, I used S3Slider before. Easy slider looks nice too for some sub pages. Have to test them with IE9, recently had lot of problems with with my sites in IE9 :(

  51. Jens Ahrengot Boddum left a comment on April 11, 2011 at 1:12 pm |

    Nice collection. Wondering the Nivo slider and CU3ER was left out though :)

    If you’re interested, I created an image slider a while back and released it for free to the community. It’s very minimalistic with a 3D flip as the transition between images. All settings are tweakable via XML.

    Anyway, you can download it or check out a demo of my free image slider here: http://ahrengot.com/likes/free-flash-based-3d-image-slider/

    • Pierre-Louis Lefevre left a comment on June 8, 2011 at 3:10 am |

      Hi,

      Thanks for the link. Loved the scroller and it made me think about another piece of kit I’ve stumbled upon on the net, looking for a free slider.

      It’s Flash, so no IPhone support, unfortunately, but the Photo Rotator looked awesome, and you could customize it directly online, upload images and all. If you think it’s worth checking out, just http://www.flashxml.net/photo-rotator.html

      Je te salue! P-L

    Yeah, featured content and image sliders are really not that hard to implement in your site. A simple plugin and adjusting the settings and your off and sliding.

    If you need any help with this, let me know and we can give you a hand.

    Thanks.
