Best examples of jQuery Sliders Effects and WordPress Plugins

jQuery are the best way to display your row images to present to your visitors. There are lots of option and customization that can create very simple, beautiful and good looking image sliders. Yesterday I written a tutorial on HOW TO: Create A Vertical Scrolling News Ticker on WordPress With jQuery Carousel. In this post you’re going to find different types of pre-made jQuery plugins and unique image galleries for inspiration, and at the end there are some WordPress themes  if you want to develop your own site image slider with beautiful effects.

jQuery Slider, Slideshow and jQuery Carousel Effects

3d Rotation Viewer

This example is inspired by a showcase example by Apple of HTML5 technologies. The UIZE implementation works in pretty much all browsers, with no need for HTML5 or CSS3 features. This was an exercise in seeing how easy it would be to create an equivalent experience in UIZE. It was easy, taking less than a day. The code is all original, with absolutely no referencing of Apple’s code (but thanks to Apple for their delicious iPod Touch products, and for their fabulous photos of said products). In the example, an instance of the Uize.Widget.Drag class is being used to create a simple 3D rotation viewer. Using a mouse, you can click and drag to rotate the 3D image. On an Apple iPad, you can use your finger.

jQuery Banner Rotator / Slideshow

This is a jQuery banner rotator plugin featuring multiple transitions. The thumbnails and buttons allow for easy navigation of your banners/ads. The banner rotator is also re-sizable and configurable through the plugin’s parameters.

Estro – jQuery Ken Burns & swipe effect slider

This jQuery plugin uses unobstrusive javascript to transform a block of simple HTML markup into a georgous elegant slider, which can be completely customized using HTML5 data attributes. The markup is valid HTML5 and SEO optimzied, with all content always being available to search engines. When using this plugin, your page layout will be consistent even if javascript has been disabled. This slider includes a smooth and powerful Ken Burns effect which is completely configurable and compatible with all major browsers (including ie7 to ie9, Firefox Chrome, Opera, Safari) and mobile platforms like iphone / ipad. If the Ken Burns effect is not your thing, that’s OK because the “Estro” slider also includes a 2-way “Swipe” mode with configurable transitions.

Highslide JS

Highslide JS is an image, media and gallery viewer written in JavaScript. These are some of its advantages:

  • Quick and elegant looking.
  • No plugins like Flash or Java required.
  • Popup blockers are no problem. The content opens within the active browser window.
  • Single click. After opening the image or HTML popup, the user can scroll further down or leave the page without closing it.
  • Lots of configuration options and scalability without compromizing on simplicity. A component system lets you strip away unused features down to a filesize of 10kB.
  • Outstanding, unconditional and free user support for both commercial and non-commercial users.
  • Compatibility and safe degrading. If the user has disabled JavaScript or is using an old browser, the browser redirects directly to the image itself or to a given HTML page.
  • Source code included.


Sexy Slider

SexySlider is a JQuery plugin that lets you easily create powerful javascript Sliders with very nice transition effects. Enhance your website by adding a unique and attractive slider!

CrossSlide is a jQuery plugin implementing in 2kB of Javascript code some common slide-show animations, traditionally only available via Adobe Flash™ or other proprietary plugins. CrossSlide builds upon jQuery’s animation facility, so it is as portable across browsers as jQuery itself (that is, a lot!) Internally CrossSlide does not rely on lookup tables, building instead a “chain” of functions. Each function starts a linear phase of the animation through jQuery, setting the next function in the chain as a complete callback. After all the functions are prepared and the animation is started, no other calculations are made. This setup reduces runtime overhead to the absolute minimum, making CrossSlide the most optimized implementation of these effects.

Sliding Boxes and Captions


Polaroid Photo Viewer

This example is making use of CSS3 and jQuery, just to show the effect when combining two powerful techniques. The CSS3 is injected by jQuery, keeping the CSS file clean.


Thumbnails Navigation Gallery with jQuery

In this tutorial we are going to create an extraordinary gallery with scrollable thumbnails that slide out from a navigation. We are going to use jQuery and some CSS3 properties for the style. The main idea is to have a menu of albums where each item will reveal a horizontal bar with thumbnails when clicked. The thumbnails container will scroll automatically when the user moves the mouse to the left or right.

Step Carousel Viewer

Step Carousel Viewer displays images or even rich HTML by side scrolling them left or right. Users can step to any specific panel on demand, or browse the gallery sequentially by stepping through x number of panels each time. A smooth sliding animation is used to transition between steps. And fear not in taming this script to go exactly where you want it to- two public methods, two custom event handlers, and three “status” variables are here for that purpose.

Text Effects with jQuery

jQuery Word Counter

This plugin allows you to set and limit user input by max characters within html textarea (it is only limited by characters other than words). It binds keyup, paste and drag events. The extra div is displayed under the textarea, which shows the current number of input characters and words. You can set your own styles and customise the text counter information. Version 2 provides the callback function.

jTicker Typing Text Effect using jQuery

For long now flash has been dominating the interactive web animation, using JavaScript was a daunting task. But introduction of frameworks like jQuery, MooTools, Scriptaculous, etc have made animating web component much easier. Another advantage of using these frameworks over flash is that they are search engine friendly. Though search engine do not index JavaScript, actual content is present in html or other SEO friendly code.

Codename Rainbows

Even without Photoshop, you can make text effects with this by just typing a little code.

Grab bag, jQuery text effects

Some fun little text effects. These manipulate $(ele).text() so will probably be disastrously broken with inner HTML content.

Color Changing Text and Backgrounds Effects

Normally you would define the (background) color in the CSS and that would be the end of it. In this case we want to be able to adjust colors after the page has loaded, and not just once either – we’re aiming for continuous adjustments.

The lovely part about this whole thing is the small about of jQuery required to make it all happen.

Fade Colors Using jQuery

Retweetradar has nice little effect in the footer – links in top lists fade, emphasizing the most popular links with strongest color intensity. This tutorial will explain how to fade a color in array of elements using jQuery.

Playing with jQuery Color Plugin and Color Animation

jQuery is an easy and useful JavaScript library. If you are someone with basic knowledge of JavaScript you can easily insert jQuery plugins and effects. You do not need to be hardcore coder or developer for that. In this post you will see how to create some cool menus with jQuery and  jQuery Color Plugin.

jQuery Approach

Approach is a jQuery plugin that allows you to animate style properties based on the cursor’s proximity to an object. It works in a very similar manner to jQuery animate, however it animates over distance instead of time.


AutoCompleter Tutorial

I thought i would write this tutorial because most of the auto completer applications i have seen just dump the code into a zip and tell you how to use it rather than how and why it works, knowing about this enables you to customise it a lot more (this has been demonstrated with the other apps i have written here)!

3d Tag Sphere

A rotating 3d tag cloud controlled with the mouse. Tags are scaled according to the weight assigned to them and fade into the background as they rotate.

Simple jQuery Text Resizer

The idea is very simple: you click on the text size you want, and a class is added to the body to indicate which size the user has selected. Then, we take advantage of that body class when we are writing our CSS to size the different elements appropriately.


Airport is a rather simple text effect plugin for Jquery. It emulates the style of those flickering information boards you sometimes find on airports and train stations.

 3D Tag Cloud

This tutorial will show how to create a scrolling 3D tag cloud…it’s not as difficult as you might think.

Flip HTML content in 3D

In order to use the rotate3Di jQuery plugin, your web page will need to include jQuery v1.2.6 or newer, the jQuery CSS Transform patch, and the rotate3Di plugin itself.


This is a very excellent plugin. after open the page, the object will revolve around the page and if you click the buttons, it will jump in a circular motion and bounce back into position.


jQuery.spritely is a jQuery plugin created by Artlogic for creating dynamic character and background animation in pure HTML and JavaScript. It’s a simple, light-weight plugin with a few simple methods for creating animated sprites such as the birds you see on this page, and dynamic scrolling backgrounds.

Animated Curtain

This tutorial would not be anything special without the graphics, so let’s make sure you’ve got those under control. I’ve included the ones used in demo as part of the attached files, now would be a good time to download them if you intend to use them.

 jQuery Animated Postcard

Nicely illustrated banners are…nice. But why not add a little pizazz by using animation like Flash websites do? Through Javascript web pages are becoming increasingly less static and all sorts of creative possibilities are opening up.


Reorder and filter items with a nice shuffling animation.

Puffing Smoke Effect in jQuery

Creating this fun jQuery effect doesn’t take too much effort. I am going to quickly go through the steps of using this effect to show you how easy it can be. As you can see on the example page, you can selected different types of smoke that will adjust the effect while keeping the code intact.

jAni jQuery Plugin Animation

jAni is a simple plugin for jQuery which allows you animate background images. The plugin is basically an alternative to the animated GIF but with several benefits. At first, it’s always better to use an animated GIF as this format is supported by all browsers without any JavaScript code or additional markup, but the “dark side” of it is that an animated GIF allows only 256 colors and you cannot control animation in any way. The jAni loads a long vertical image and changes its background position with the speed you setup, giving you more control of the animation.

Animated Landscape Header with jQuery

In this tutorial we’ll start with a cartoon themed header, build two different states for content and animate a transition between them using jQuery.

jQuery Parallax

A parallax style implementation of user interactions. When the mouse moves over the document (or a specific element) the actions can be translated to modify any CSS property of an element for example an image position, to give a parallax style effect.

Rezoner’s jEffects

jEffects enhances user interaction by providing decorative effects. It’s all packaged into an intuitive jQuery plugin. Detailed documentation is included.

Rotating Billboard with jQuery

In this tutorial we will use some images, CSS and jQuery to create the effect of a rotating billboard with two ads. The idea is to make one set of image slices disappear while another one (the other ad) appear. We will decrease the width of each disappearing slice and increase the width of each appearing slice. This will give the effect of rotating slices, just like in a rotating billboard system.

jQuery Flight Board

jQuery plugin that sets a division to flip between text messages like a flight board at an airport.

Animated Cartoon Robot with jQuery

Aside from being a fun exercise, what purpose does something like this have? None that’s plainly obvious. Its about as useful as a miniature ship in a bottle. Yet it does have an underlying purpose. It could inspire someone to look beyond the perceived constraints of web designers and developers.

Custom Animation Banner with jQuery

The idea is to have different elements in a banner that will animate step-wise in a custom way. We will be using the jQuery Easing Plugin and the jQuery 2D Transform Plugin to create some nifty animations.

HOW TO: Create A Vertical Scrolling News Ticker on WordPress With jQuery Carousel

I had to design a Vertical Scrolling news ticker for my client. Initially,  I thought it’s hard to figure it out, but thanks to a tutorial ” Create A Vertical Scrolling News Ticker With jQuery and jCarousel Lite“.  I learnt from this tutorial along with other and  modified  the code and made it into something I wanted, hope this would help you too.

First thing first, how to Including jQuery in WordPress (The Right Way)? WordPress already includes a copy of jQuery. Here is how you can load up jQuery in your theme the smart (and intended) way. Put the following code in header.php file in the <head> section:

<?php wp_enqueue_script("jquery"); ?>  <?php wp_head(); ?>

How to Add JCarousel Lite to WordPress
How to Create a jQuery Carousel with WordPress

jCarousel Lite is tiny but powerful plugin and with it you can easily add/tweak/configure  News ticker part on your Website. After including jQuery Carousel into you WordPress theme, now need to create style and html code to run image gallery or News on your website. Follow these steps to  Create A Vertical Scrolling News Ticker on WordPress With jQuery Carousel.

Step 1

Create a new <div> in your style sheet, which should include container for the news ticker and style of the text and heading. As well, a very important <div> class name that must b same class name when you configure jCarousel Lite in your theme. In my case I have created “latestnews-jcarousellite”, as you can see bellow:

/* ======= Latest News ===================*/
#latest-news {
padding:0px 0px 8px;
margin:0 !important;
#latest-news a { text-decoration:none; }
#latest-news .title {
.latestnews-jcarousellite { width:100px; }
.latestnews-jcarousellite ul li{ list-style:none; display:block; padding-bottom:1px; margin-bottom:2px; }
.clear { clear: both; }


Create a News category and get its id number, hope you know how to get it, after creating some news post for created category, add a loop where you want to display News ticker. In my case i wanted to display it in side bare and  have added the following code in my theme sidebar:

<div id="latest-news">
<h2>Latest News </h2>
<p> Find out our latest orders, clients and customer feedback! </p>
<div id="latestnews-jcarousellite">
<?php query_posts("showposts=5&cat=32"); $i = 1; ?>
<?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
<li> <a class="title" rel="bookmark" href="<?php the_permalink() ?>"><?php the_title() ?></a></li>
<?php endwhile; ?>
</ul> </div>

Step 3

After adding loop’s posts  and configure the jCarousel. Under the<head> or  in sidebar.php file  add following price of script:

<script type="text/javascript">
jQuery(function() {
vertical: true,
speed: 1000,

Where visible number  must be equal to showposts number, <div id=”latestnews-jcarousellite”> must be same.  The “auto:500? means it will auto-scroll every 500ms. There are a lot of options read the documentation for more information and configuration.

“Holiday – Seasons Greetings” – HTML Email Template (designed by Bob)

From the designer:

“Normally I choose not to use a background color for my email templates, however, for this design I couldn’t resist. Recently in a lot of my design work I’ve been tending to add a light source which I think helps bring the design to life giving it a more sophisticated feel. I also carried the snowflakes slightly outside of the frame of the email to make the design feel that much more three dimensional.”


“Holiday – Snow Hills” – HTML Email Template (designed by Dan)

From the designer:

I chose to include a snow scene in the template to elicit the feeling of winter and a white Christmas. Blue was the obvious color scheme choice for me to add to the feeling of winter. The candy cane-like red and white stripe was added to help separate the header and body content. This also provided a bit of color variation and visual interest below the snow scene in the header of this Christmas email template.

How to Enable Posting and Editing From the WordPress Front-End

If you are running a blog on WordPress than you should convert it into a community blog by allowing your visitors to participate on your blog. There are mainly two ways that you can use to run a social friendly blog. Firstly, Allow them to make a post or share a news on your blog from the Front end. Secondly, Allow them to vote on blog’s content.

WordPress Plugins for Front end posting and Editing

For those who are not familiar with WordPress dashboard, for guest writers, authors, WordPress have the capabilities to make a post and to edit it from front end. Lost of users find it difficult and often give up on posting. So its very necessary for those sites which heavily relay on user-generated content,  such as reviews or community news, can be a formidable challenge. I’ve complied a list of plugins that will help to virtually eliminate this problem.

Gravity Forms

This plugin allows users to automatically create a post, among many other things. When added to a form, the post fields create a post when the form is submitted. It’s great for user-submitted stories, job postings, directories, etc. and comes with professional support.


Post From Site

This new wordpress plugin allows you to post straight from your front-end (i.e. website) – perfect for a quick update! Also useful if you have multiple users and don’t need them to see the admin side of things. It creates a link on your website which, when clicked, will bring up a simple text-box. Users can enter a post title (required), content (also required), add categories and tags (including created new ones), and upload images. Images can be placed in your post with custom tags ([!--image1--]), or all appended to the end of the post.

Front-end Editor

Front-end Editor is a plugin that lets you make changes to your contentdirectly from your site. No need to load the admin backend just to correct a typo.


  • save as many trips to the backend as possible
  • compatible with any theme, out of the box
  • light and fast

You can edit posts, pages, custom post types, comments, widgets and manymore elements.

Quick Post Widget

This plugin provides a widget to post directly from the frontend of your site without going into the backend. The widget optionally offers visual editing while posting from the frontend, with a bunch of features (media uploading, spellchecking, preview,….)!
Guest posting can be enabled with optional captcha security. Apart from post title, content and categories, tags, custom fields, custom taxonomies, post date and excerpt can optionally be entered. You can easily add images or video-clips to your posts without using the backend of your site.

Inline Editor

Adds the capacity to edit your content from the front end of your WordPress blog using the styling of your blog.

Using the excellent and lightweight NicEdit WYSIWYG editor component to give you full control over the look.

The main advantages over editing this way over the traditional method is that you can see your content exactly how it will appear using all the styles and formatting of your WordPress template, plus it’s far more convenient this way.

One Quick Post

One Quick Post is a WordPress/BuddyPress plugin that allows you to enable frontend posting on your blog; including for non-registered users.

FE-Editor inline

The famous Front-end editor by scribu is changed only by CSS to an real inline editor. After login into backoffice and going back to your front end you can edit your texts by double click as in scribu’s front-end editor. But now your editor panel is fixed above in your browser’s left corner and always present and the page looks as before but now you can write in it. Above that edit panel you find an edit button – if your template supplies the class post-edit-link for it – for going into backend making the job you can’t do with the small editor.

WP User Frontend

Some of us want something like that the subscriber/contributor will not be able to go in the wordpress backend and everything these user can control will be done from wordpress frontend.

WordPress Plugins for Voting on posts

Get vote on your post to get more exposer for social bookmarking. All you have to do is to  give your readers the ability to rate content on your site.

Simple Star Rating

The Simple Star Rating plugin for WordPress is a very simple-to-use star rating system that you can use anywhere in your blogs & pages by clicking on an additional button integrated in your content editor.

Choose the number of stars, the default value, the color and the size of your rating items within the WYSIWYG editor, through a dead easy slider-based popup. Then let your visitors rate your posts, movies, recipies and more…


Avia Feedback Box – feature request system

The Avia Feedback Box is a feature request system for visitors and customers. They can suggest new ideas, vote on existing ones, and track your work progress.

At the beginning of each month a user/visitor get 10 votes to distribute. They can choose to use all their votes for one idea they really like, or spread them across between several ideas.


Post Voting Plugin

Gauge the popularity of your site’s content by letting your visitors or users vote on that content. Sort of like your own personal Digg or Reddit, and it’s packed with features!


With jSocial you can easily place social share buttons under your articles and pages on your website. This script uses the jQuery framework and works completely client side. So you can use it on static and dynamic webpages.
