AnythingSlider: parameter on function to call plugin

  • # April 10, 2013 at 8:54 am

    Uhm, I’m sorry but it’s still not clear what that number does!

    From what I understand it should “set the current slide”, but what does that mean? If I change the number nothing changes…

    The code you are seeing:

    var changeToSlide = 6;

    is how to change the slide AFTER Anything has initialized. So, if you add a button (or link, or whatever) to your page and add this code:


    // initialize the slider

    // click the button to change to slide 3


    Run [this demo](, click on the button and you’ll see the slider change to the third slide (there are only 5 slides).

    If you want to start the slider on the third slide, then set the [`startPanel` option]( to whatever number slide you want to start on:


    // initialize the slider, and start on the third panel
    startPanel: 3
