Basic jQuery Content Rotator Plugin - Rotation.js

Rotation.js is a simple and customizable jQuery content rotator plugin for rotating any html elements with transition easing effects, a little similar to a slideshow.

How to use it:

1. Include the jQuery library and jQuery rotation.js in the page.

<script src=""></script>
<script src="jquery.rotation.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="jquery.rotation.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="jquery.rotation.theme.css">

2. Markup html structure.

<div id="rotator-container">
<ul id="rotator">
Content 1
Content 2
Content 3
Content 4

autoRotate: true,
paginationNumbers: true
