The simplr-fade jQuery plugin allows you create automatic, highly customizable image carousel/slider/slideshow with ease.

Basic usage:

1. Load jQuery library and the jQuery simplr-fade plugin's script in the html file.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="jquery.simplr.fade.js" ></script>

<!-- For additional Easing Effects -->
<script src="jquery.easing.min.js"></script>
<!-- For additional CSS3 Animations -->
<link href="amimate.css" rel="stylesheet">

3. The basic HTML structure for the slider plugin.

<div id="fader-demo">
  <div class="item">
    <p class="p1">this</p>
    <img src="1.jpg" alt="">
  <div class="item">
    <p class="p2">is</p>
    <img src="2.jpg" alt="">
  <div class="item">
    <p class="p3">some</p>
    <img src="3.jpg" alt="">
  <div class="item">
    <p class="p4">HTML</p>
    <img src="4.jpg" alt="">

4. Add custom slider controls to the slider.

<ul id="controls-demo" class="controls">
  <li><a href="#" class="prev">prev</a></li>
    <ul class="nav">
      <li><a href="#">1</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">2</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">3</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">4</a></li>
  <li><a href="#" class="next">next</a></li>
  <li><a href="#" class="stop">stop</a></li>

5. Initialize the plugin to generate a default slider.

var myFader = $('#fader-demo .item').srFade()

6. Active the slider controls.

// go to the previous item
$('#controls-demo .prev').on('click', function () {
  return false
// go to the next item
$('#controls-demo .next').on('click', function () {
  return false
// go to item within the fader by clicking in the navigation
$('#controls-demo .nav a').on('click', function () {
  myFader.fadeTo($('#controls-demo .nav a').index(this))
  return false
