Horizontal Content Scroller Plugin with jQuery - Scroll Slider

A basic content scroller/slider which allows you to horizontally scroll through a set of Html elements by mouse wheel or dragging the custom scrollbar generated by the plugin.

How to use it:

1. Link to jQuery library and the JQuery scroll slider plugin.

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/jquery.scrollslider.js"></script>

2. Insert a set of Html elements into the scroller with a custom scrollbar.

<div id="scrollslider" class="scrollSlider">

  <div class="viewport">
    <div class="overview">
      <img src="https://unsplash.it/600/300?image=56">
      <img src="https://unsplash.it/600/300?image=45">
      <img src="https://unsplash.it/600/300?image=39">

  <div class="scrollbar">
    <div class="track"></div>

3. The basic styles for the scroller.

.scrollSlider div.viewport {
  width: 100%;
  height: 100%;
  overflow-x: hidden;

.scrollSlider div.viewport div.overview {
  width: 10000px;
  height: 100%;

  display: block;
  float: left;
  height: 100%;
  margin-right: 5px;

.scrollSlider div.viewport div.overview img:last-child { margin-right: 0; }

.scrollSlider div.viewport div.overview:after {
  content: '';
  display: block;
  width: 100%;
  clear: both;
