Cool jQuery sliders to add in any WordPress website.

A slider, also called slideshow has become one of the basic ingredients of a successful website. Whether you are designing an e-zine, business or portfolio, a slider is required for everyone.

If you are designing a WordPress based website for a client, you should use a slider. Slideshows don’t just add interactivity but they also create that most important wowing effect which we need to create in order to make the client lose some money.

Basically jQuery adds spark to your designs.

The creator claims that this is the world’s most awesome slider…. exaggeration? Well, a mother always thinks her child is the world’s most beautiful child.
