This is a simple jQuery plugin for creating sliding carousels.

Demo/Examples

simple demo
aditu.de (image will change using a fade in/fade out effect)
rsslounge (presentation of the features by an slideshow)

Usage

Insert following in the head part of your html page:

<script type="text/javascript" src="javascript/jquery-1.8.3.min.js"></script> 
<script type="text/javascript" src="javascript/simple.carousel.0.3.js"></script> 
<script type="text/javascript"> 
jQuery(document).ready(function() {
	// initialize carousel
	$("#carousel").simplecarousel({
		next: $('.next'),
		prev: $('.prev'),
		slidespeed: 700,
		auto: 5000,
		width: 480,
		height: 280
	});
});
