When building a website, most businesses want to have some type of image slider to present their potential visitors with an idea of what their website and services are. The JQuery WOWSlider is an excellent choice when it comes incorporating visual representation on your website. It allows those who do not have extensive knowledge of coding, to make stunning and professional images appear on their main website page with a simple point and click set-up.
The above example has a template that is very simplistic in nature with a straight lined borderless frame that looks to pull the audience`s attention directly towards the image itself rather than a border or what is surrounding the image slider – like other templates may have. This means that putting anything around this type of border could distract the audience away from it, so putting it against a simplistic website design will have it serve its purpose.
This template is all about the visuals that you put inside it! The text with this particular borderless frame template appears in two separate textboxes in the bottom left hand corner. These two textboxes are red and black, the red coming in first on the template and the black coming in underneath it. The red textbox looks to draw the main attention from the audience, offering a white bolded font against the red background. The black box underneath it is a bit smaller and slimmer, and the font is not bolded but still white against the black background.
This template has a total of five images, but can be added to, to incorporate more stunning visuals if need be. Each image will pause in between one another for around 2-5 seconds before automatically changing to the next slide using the slicing effect. The slicing effect will cause the incoming image to either cut up from the bottom in vertically aligned rectangle slices, or cut down from the top in a similar fashion. When the slicing effect cuts in from the left hand side, it will cut in with a slicing effect that overlaps itself, revealing the new image.
This particular demo is on an auto play option but it does have a skip back and forward and a pause button that the user can utilize to pause or skip ahead in the images. These orange buttons are situated in the lower-left part of the slideshow. Once the slider has reached the end of the pictures, it loops itself back to the beginning and starts again. You can see how many pictures are within the slide by viewing the black rectangle bubbles that appear in the bottom middle of each slide.
