Generic Cross-browser Slideshow Plugin With jQuery - KinSlideshow

KinSlideshow is a pretty simple, fully configurable jQuery plugin which helps you create an automatic slideshow for presenting your popular images/posts on the webpage.


  • No CSS required.
  • Works on any modern browsers.
  • Auto rotation like a carousel.
  • Auto caption bar that loads content from img's alt attribute.
  • Allows to slide between images on click or hover.
  • Custom pagination.

How to use it:

1. First you need to load jQuery library and the JavaScript file jquery.KinSlideshow.min.js in the webpage.

<script src="//"></script>
<script src="js/jquery.KinSlideshow-1.2.1.min.js"></script>

2. Add a group of images into a container element. Note that the wrapping element must have a 'visibility:hidden;' CSS property.

<div id="KinSlideshow" style="visibility:hidden;">
  <a href="#"><img src="1.jpg" alt="Alt 1"></a>
  <a href="#"><img src="2.jpg" alt="Alt 2"></a>
  <a href="#"><img src="3.jpg" alt="Alt 3"></a>
  <a href="#"><img src="4.jpg" alt="Alt 4"></a>
  <a href="#"><img src="5.jpg" alt="Alt 5"></a>

3. Initialize the slideshow with all default options.


4. Config your slideshow with the following options.


  // transition delay in seconds
  intervalTime: 5,

  // animation speed in ms
  moveSpeedTime: 400,

  //  left | right | up | down
