How to Integrate Nivo Slider into WordPress

Integrate Nivo Slider with WordPress

I am sure many of you have already heard or read about the sleek NIVO Image Slider built using jQuery and HTML. If you haven’t, you can go to the website and check it out for yourself. The slider allows you to display images and HTML text via 9 unique transition effects.

This slider serves as a static slider using only CSS/HTML and jQuery. Today, I am going to show you how you can integrate this nifty looking slider component into your WordPress theme effectively (a much easier way than what you have already known). Read on!

1. First Steps First

Download the NIVO slider files to your desktop and extract them to a folder. Copy the files called arrows.png, bullets.png and loading.gif from the nivo-slider/demo/images folder and paste them into your WordPress Theme /Images folder.

Now in your WordPress theme, decide an appropriate place where you want the slider to show up. For this particular example, I will be using the WordPress theme – “Twenty Ten (2010)” that comes with a default installation of WordPress (3.0+).

30 Creative Fish Logos

Fish Logos

Fish logo designs are typically used in two situations.

Situation one: Your product or service is related to fish – for example, you might be a seafood restaurant that sells fish or maybe your business or client is a ‘fish doctor’ (yes they exist – see ‘The Fish Doctor’ logo below).

Situation two: You’ve chosen to include ‘fish’ in your business name or brand because ‘fish’ symbolizes something – for example, you might be a sport team and you chose a shark as your mascot (to position team as tough and aggressive) or you might run a fashion label that supports sustainable seafood (see the Fashionfish logo design below). In many cultures the fish symbolizes knowledge, prosperity and luck – so using a fish as part of your brand brings positive connotations.

Check out the following logos for the many ways that fish can be represented as well as the many types of fish that are used in logos :-
