  expand              : false,     // If true, the entire slider will expand to fit the parent element
  resizeContents      : true,      // If true, solitary images/objects in the panel will expand to fit the viewport
  showMultiple        : false,     // Set this value to a number and it will show that many slides at once
  easing              : "swing",   // Anything other than "linear" or "swing" requires the easing plugin or jQuery UI

  // Function
  enableArrows        : true,      // if false, arrows will be visible, but not clickable.
  enableNavigation    : true,      // if false, navigation links will still be visible, but not clickable.
  enableStartStop     : true,      // if false, the play/stop button will still be visible, but not clickable. Previously "enablePlay"
  enableKeyboard      : true,      // if false, keyboard arrow keys will not work for this slider.

  // Navigation
  startPanel          : 1,         // This sets the initial panel
  changeBy            : 1,         // Amount to go forward or back when changing panels.
  hashTags            : true,      // Should links change the hashtag in the URL?
  infiniteSlides      : true,      // if false, the slider will not wrap & not clone any panels
  navigationFormatter : null,      // Details at the top of the file on this use (advanced use)
  navigationSize      : false,     // Set this to the maximum number of visible navigation tabs; false to disable

  // Slideshow options
  autoPlay            : false,     // If true, the slideshow will start running; replaces "startStopped" option
  autoPlayLocked      : false,     // If true, user changing slides will not stop the slideshow
  autoPlayDelayed     : false,     // If true, starting a slideshow will delay advancing slides; if false, the slider will immediately advance to the next slide when slideshow starts
  pauseOnHover        : true,      // If true & the slideshow is active, the slideshow will pause on hover
  stopAtEnd           : false,     // If true & the slideshow is active, the slideshow will stop on the last page. This also stops the rewind effect when infiniteSlides is false.
  playRtl             : false,     // If true, the slideshow will move right-to-left

  // Times
  delay               : 3000,      // How long between slideshow transitions in AutoPlay mode (in milliseconds)
  resumeDelay         : 15000,     // Resume slideshow after user interaction, only if autoplayLocked is true (in milliseconds).
  animationTime       : 600,       // How long the slideshow transition takes (in milliseconds)
  delayBeforeAnimate  : 0,         // How long to pause slide animation before going to the desired slide (used if you want your "out" FX to show).

  // Callbacks
  onBeforeInitialize  : function(e, slider) {}, // Callback before the plugin initializes
  onInitialized       : function(e, slider) {}, // Callback when the plugin finished initializing
  onShowStart         : function(e, slider) {}, // Callback on slideshow start
  onShowStop          : function(e, slider) {}, // Callback after slideshow stops
  onShowPause         : function(e, slider) {}, // Callback when slideshow pauses
  onShowUnpause       : function(e, slider) {}, // Callback when slideshow unpauses - may not trigger properly if user clicks on any controls
  onSlideInit         : function(e, slider) {}, // Callback when slide initiates, before control animation
  onSlideBegin        : function(e, slider) {}, // Callback before slide animates
  onSlideComplete     : function(slider) {},    // Callback when slide completes; this is the only callback without an event "e" variable

  // Interactivity
  clickForwardArrow   : "click",         // Event used to activate forward arrow functionality (e.g. add jQuery mobile's "swiperight")
  clickBackArrow      : "click",         // Event used to activate back arrow functionality (e.g. add jQuery mobile's "swipeleft")
  clickControls       : "click focusin", // Events used to activate navigation control functionality
  clickSlideshow      : "click",         // Event used to activate slideshow play/stop button
  allowRapidChange    : false,           // If true, allow rapid changing of the active pane, instead of ignoring activity during animation

  // Video
  resumeOnVideoEnd    : true,      // If true & the slideshow is active & a supported video is playing, it will pause the autoplay until the video is complete
  resumeOnVisible     : true,      // If true the video will resume playing (if previously paused, except for YouTube iframe - known issue); if false, the video remains paused.
  addWmodeToObject    : "opaque",  // If your slider has an embedded object, the script will automatically add a wmode parameter with this setting
  isVideoPlaying      : function(base){ return false; } // return true if video is playing or false if not - used by video extension
});
