I've been working on improving the AnythingSlider jQuery plugin by Chris Coyier of CSS-Tricks.com. The project was moved to github, so you can always get the latest version there... My version is up to 1.4 and you can check out a demo of it here - try starting both YouTube videos, then start the slideshow (doesn't work in Internet Explorer properly).

Features include:
  • Panels are HTML Content (can be anything).
  • Multiple AnythingSliders allowable per-page.
  • Infinite/Continuous sliding (always slides in the direction you are going, even at "last" slide).
  • Optionally resize each panel (specified per panel in css).
  • Optional Next / Previous Panel Arrows.
  • Use keyboard navigation or tabs that are built and added dynamically (any number of panels).
  • Link to specific slides or go forward or back one slide from static text links
  • Each panel has a hashtag (can link directly to specific panels).
  • Optional custom function for formatting navigation text.
  • Auto-playing slideshow (optional feature, can start playing or stopped)
  • Pauses playing YouTube videos when not in view and resumes them when in view (only in non-IE browsers & if files are hosted on the web).
  • If slideshow is active, a playing video will complete before the slideshow continues.
  • Pauses slideshow on hover (optional).
  • Optionally play the slideshow once through, stopping on the last page.

Switched file hosting sites

Apparently all the files hosted on myotherdrive.com are no longer available for direct linking. So I moved the important files over to dropbox.com and updated the appropriate posts.

Sorry if there was any inconvenience for anyone.
