Wideslide: jQuery slideshow plugin

By Andrey Petrov and Ryan Feeley

Want to display an inline slideshow of images of a fixed size on your webpage? Usually this requires cropping your images to a uniform dimension. But now with Wideslide you can retain the original image ratio.

Wideslide Javascript for the header

<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.wideslide.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function() {
            width: 710,       // Width of the container
            height: 244,      // Height of the container
            max_width: 10000, // Any number greater than the sum of all images' widths
            speed: 800,       // Speed of the switching animation
            timer: 4000       // Timer in milliseconds for auto-play (0 = off)

Wideslide HTML for the body

The contents of the jQuery-selected class in the Javascript header will be replaced with the slideshow interface. In this case, the class is wideslide.

<ul class="wideslide">
    <li><img src="image1.jpg" width="374" height="240" /></li>
    <li><img src="image5.jpg" width="320" height="240" /></li>
    <li><img src="image2.jpg" width="320" height="240" /></li>
    <li><img src="image6.jpg" width="320" height="240" /></li>
    <li><img src="image4.jpg" width="320" height="240" /></li>
    <li><img src="image8.jpg" width="240" height="240" /></li>
    <li><img src="image3.jpg" width="240" height="240" /></li>
    <li><img src="image7.jpg" width="320" height="240" /></li>
