jQuery Fadeloader v1.0.1: a simple site preloader plugin

The jQuery Fadeloader plugin lets you easily implement a preloader to your site or section, using a cascade fade in effect to show specific blocks of content (for example, you can load first the header, then the menu and finally the content).

##Demo: right here


Fist include the required files on your page's HEAD ("easing" is optional):

<script src='//'></script>
<script src='//'></script>
<script src='jquery.fadeloader.js'></script>

Then assign a class name to each of your elements using the alphabet. Let's say...

	<div class="a"><img class="let" src=""></div>
	<div class="b"><img class="let" src=""></div>
	<div class="c"><img class="let" src=""></div>
	<div class="d"><img class="let" src=""></div>
	<div class="e"><img class="let" src=""></div>
	<div class="f"><img class="let" src=""></div>
	<div class="g"><img class="let" src=""></div>
	<div class="h"><img class="let" src=""></div>
	<div class="i"><img class="let" src=""></div>
	<div class="j"><img class="let" src=""></div>

Now hide them all with CSS:

body > div {
	display: none;

Finally set the Fadeloader in the 'document ready' event. This is the basic usage:

$(document).ready(function() {
	$('body').fadeloader({ });

That's it! Enjoy.
