Easy Customizable Slider / Carousel Plugin With jQuery - H Slider

H Slider is a jQuery plugin that lets you create a fully configurable image carousel / gallery with an auto scrolling thumbnail navigation.

Key features:

  • Auto slide on page load.
  • Slide or fade transition effects.
  • Dynamically adds images to the carousel via JavaScript.
  • You can specify any number of slides in current view.
  • Thumbnail navigation that auto scrolls as you slide between images.
  • Custom slider controls.
  • Callback functions supported.

How to use it:

1. To get started, you need to load jQuery library and the jQuery H Slider plugin's files in the html page as follows:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="style/hslider.min.css">
<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/hslider.min.js"></script>

2. The basic html structure for the slider.

<div class='hslider'>
  <ul class="hslider-parent-container">
    <li class="hslide selected">
      <div class="parent-container">
        <img src="img/1.jpg">
    <li class="hslide">
      <div class="parent-container">
        <img src="img/2.jpg">
    <li class="hslide">
      <div class="parent-container">
        <img src="img/3.jpg">

3. Call the function to initialize the slider with default options.
