Responsive jQuery Content Slider - Liquid Slider

Liquid Slider is a jQuery Slider Plugin that allows you to create a fully responsive, touch-friendly content slider for both web and mobile devices.

The plugin also generates a tab navigation for the slider that enables the user to switch between slides just like the tabbed content interface.

Users are also able to navigate between slides by clicking the left/right arrows or swiping the screen (for mobile).

More features:

  • Auto adjusts the height based on the content.
  • Auto play with pause on hover.
  • Keyboard navigation.
  • Content preloader.

How to use it:

1. Include the necessary jQuery Library and the jQuery Liquid Slider plugin's files in the document.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="/path/to/liquid-slider.css">
<script src="/path/to/jquery.liquid-slider.min.js"></script>  
<script src="/path/to/jquery.min.js"></script>

2. Load the jQuery easing plugin for extra easing functions.

<script src=""></script>

3. Load the jQuery touchSwipe plugin to enable touch events on the slider.

<script src=""></script>

4. Load the Animate.css library to animate slides with awesome CSS3 animations (OPTIONAL).

<link rel="stylesheet" href="">

5. The required HTML structure for the slider.

<div id="slider-example" class="liquid-slider">
    <h2 class="title">Slide 1</h2>
    <p>Slide 1 Content</p>
    <h2 class="title">Slide 2</h2>
    <p>Slide 2 Content</p>
    <h2 class="title">Slide 3</h2>
    <p>Slide 3 Content</p>

5. Initialize the slider with default settings.


6. Use Animate.css to animate slides

  callback: function() {
    var self = this;
    $('.slider-example-panel').each(function() {
      $(this).removeClass('animated ' + self.options.animateIn);
