Rhinoslider: The most flexible jQuery slider

Share this article

Maybe you already know Rhinofader. Some weeks ago the developers released the big brother of Rhinofader which is called Rhinoslider. Rhinoslider is the most flexible jQuery slider there is. We wanted to create a slideshow that is easy to use by anyone even without any coding experience and we tried to make it as customizable as possible. We give you turtorials and a documentation api so you can create your own effects, styles and features. The most awesome part of the slider is our live demo. With our generator
we give you a tool at hand to test every possibility to use our slider. Every setting is editable by clicking so you can set it to your needs without even writing one line of code. If you have all you need, just choose your effects and download your slider – without those effects, you don’t need anyway. Look for yourself how easy to implement Rhinoslider is. Just go to http://rhinoslider.com/demo-download/ and click your way through the generator.

Frequently Asked Questions about Rhinoslider – Flexible jQuery Slider

How can I customize the transition effects in Rhinoslider?

Rhinoslider offers a variety of transition effects that you can customize to suit your needs. To do this, you need to modify the ‘effect’ option in the Rhinoslider function. For example, if you want to use the ‘slide’ effect, you would write: $(‘#slider’).rhinoslider({effect: ‘slide’}). You can choose from a variety of effects including ‘fade’, ‘kick’, ‘push’, ‘slide’, and ‘climb’.

Can I use Rhinoslider for responsive designs?

Yes, Rhinoslider is fully responsive and can adapt to any screen size. It automatically adjusts the size of the images and the slider itself to fit the screen. This makes it a great choice for responsive web designs.

How can I add captions to the slides in Rhinoslider?

To add captions to your slides, you need to include a ‘div’ element with the class ‘caption’ inside each slide. The text inside this ‘div’ will be used as the caption. For example: <div class="slide"><img src="image.jpg"><div class="caption">This is a caption</div></div>.

Can I use Rhinoslider with other jQuery plugins?

Yes, Rhinoslider can be used in conjunction with other jQuery plugins. However, you need to ensure that there are no conflicts between the plugins. If a conflict arises, you can use jQuery’s noConflict method to resolve it.

How can I change the speed of the transitions in Rhinoslider?

The speed of the transitions can be adjusted using the ‘effectSpeed’ option in the Rhinoslider function. The value is in milliseconds, so for a 2-second transition, you would write: $(‘#slider’).rhinoslider({effectSpeed: 2000}).
