Content sliders are one of the most used elements of today’s web design. They help us a lot when we have limited space but more things to display.
jQuery Slider Shock is a very impressive (probably the most-customizable and feature-rich) jQuery slider plugin (with WordPress support) that comes with both free and paid versions.
The giveaway: 10 Combo WP + jQuery Developer Licenses ($129/each) is being given away to WRD readers. Make sure you check the end of this post for the details.
The plugin is capable of presenting both images and videos that are hosted locally or from external sources like RSS, YouTube, Hulu, Vimeo, Flickr, Twitter and Instagram.
It has 30+ transition effects which include very original, creative ones and they can be customized as well (like the number of slices, delay or speed).
Items featured can be browsed with thumbnails that can be placed on any side of the slider, prev-next buttons (multiple designs exist) or keyboard.
Captions can be added to each slide and HTML can be used in them. Also, captions can be improved with background images as well.
Like mentioned, the plugin has WordPress support. Actually, it integrates with WordPress deeply.
It can use WordPress posts, custom post types and taxonomies as the source for the slider or captions can include author and date info.
And, there are ~40 ready-to-use skins for changing the layout instantly.
jQuery Slider Shock is very well-documented (both the jQuery and WordPress versions).
