We decide to go with the RoyalSlider for the slider on the homepage. I’ve long been a fan of the AnythingSlider, because I was part of it’s creation and I think it’s very powerful. However, I think it’s a bit long in the tooth these days not supporting touch events or fluid width environments very well. The RoyalSlider is nearly as powerful (API wise) and also supports touch and fluid-ness.
We have a bunch of photos from Jeff as his work, which is all we need content-wise for the slider.
We go through the process of downloading it and implementing the CSS and JS needed to make it work on our page.
What’s the best way to attach jQuery to the end of the body element?
I am a total newbie at js, and I am not using codekit for this project. At the point where you talk about prepending the document using codekit… what am I supposed to do if I’m not using codekit? can I just copy and paste the code from the royalslider.min.js file to the global.js file? Cause that didn’t work, I have done everything else correctly (or so I think) and it’s not looking the same at this point… HELP
You are the master
It’s worth noting that the advertised price of Royal Slider has increased to $14 & $22 for the WordPress version. If you use PayPal you’ll pay an extra $2 handling fee whereas if you don’t use PayPal you have to use their in-store credit which only comes in $20 & $30 chunks – forcing you to waste money.
Essentially, if this is the only thing you’ll purchase, then Royal Slider will cost you $16/$20 or $24/$30 (WordPress version).
