So...hands up all of you who know what a jQuery Slider is. Yes, I thought so - not many of you unless you are a web designer. Well, I'll tell you then, shall I? Funnily enough, it is one of the most used elements of web design these days and is a great help to designers who want to display lots of content in a small space. The jQuery Slider Shock 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 and presents them in a groovy little package on your page. Now, of course, you could do this manually if you want to, but then you would have to have a Phd in web design to achieve it. JQuery Slider Shock is a much easier solution.
jQuery SliderShock has been launched by the team behind WP Theme Generator and iconshock and is a quality and comprehensive presentation pack to create jQuery and WordPress content sliders. Content sliders are one of the most useful elements of today's web design and are used regularly when there is limited space and lots of content to display. It features over 30 different effects and skins and is the perfect display model to keep your external data sources on your website. Effects include some great, original and very creative ones which can be customized by slicing images, adding delay or changing speed. Captions and HTML can be added to the slides and improved with unique background images. By external data we mean videos, text and photos from your favorite places - Instagram, Twitter feeds, Vimeo, Hulu, Flickr, YouTube, RSS etcetera - with all the editing features needed. This mobile and tablet-friendly web design app lets you resize, add several slide shows on the same page with browsable thumbs, change all your design aspects, colors, fonts, placements and HTML captions simply and easily. jQuery Slider Shock is a customizable and feature-rich plugin with WordPress support and integration. It can use WordPress posts, custom post types and taxonomies as the source for the slider or captions can include the author and date info.
While I was doing a bit of research on this app I came across several places with instruction on how to create your own jQuery sliders and I got lost plenty of times. The is no doubt that the ease and simplicity of this app will encourage plenty of people to be attracted to it for putting all of your rich text onto your site without any great need for coding skills. Not content with that, it also offers a comprehensive set of editing tools to fine tune your work. jQuery Slider Shock is a great app that comes in paid and free versions and can be downloaded as a jQuery code or as a plugin for WordPress
