The WOWSlider slideshow is a web code program that displays any desired image in several different ways while allowing the user to scroll through the images at their own pace. It also automatically scrolls through the pictures, providing a nice effect to the webpage it is included on. This description will focus on the components of the WOWSlider and their individual function. The major parts of the slider are: * The Navigation Controls, * The Thumbnails and Descriptions, * The Transition Effects
The navigation controls allow a visitor to access different images within the slider. There are several different types of navigation, including previous/next arrows, play/pause buttons, and navigation dots. An arrow button is a white round with a blue arrow inside it. This colors matches quite well. There is no play/pause button in this slideshow so you can't stop and start the slider manually. Bullets look similar to an arrow button but smaller in size and have a transparent rounded frame. These controls are unobtrusive and appear on mouseover with the exception of the navigation dots.
The thumbnails and text descriptions help the visitor to identify the content in the slider. Thumbnails appear on mouseover and help the visitor to view the picture they desire. Text descriptions are fully customizable and change with the picture in the slider. The description in this slider uses a Tahoma font. This black writing looks quite good on the white transparent background.
The transition effects are plentiful, 30 in total, each with its own unique transition between images. Some of the transitions use colored shapes, and others use a smooth blending technique to transition between photos.
The WOWSlider is a simple program designed to provide nonprogrammers a classy, colorful, and easy to use/implement slideshow. It can be used in many different purposes and deliver many types of content. It can slide into any website on any device, and best of all, it's free.
