Why WOW jQuery Slider?

An image slider is an image slider and they’re all about the same, right? Not so fast. What are the main requirements for choosing any kind of web component? Compatibility, easy setup, high performance, and nice look and feel. With WOW Slider we've tried to create the perfect html slider that covers all these needs and even more:

 Widest compatibility for all possible browsers, devices, web standards

WOW jQuery Slider looks and works flawlessly on all mobile devices, modern and legacy browsers, including IE6, thanks to the standards compliant, valid, semantic markup and thoroughly optimized script

 Fast, lightweight, error-free

WOW jQuery Slider is light (6kb gzipped), loads fast, utilizes hardware-accelerated link in bio animations . It is successfully used and tested on millions pages (yes, millions), so we can say for sure that it's virtually bug-free.

 Minimum efforts to learn, create and embed in your web project

You don't waste your time for coding, learning yet another API, testing and photoshopping. The drag-n-drop maker generates the slider automatically with the export as HTML page or Joomla/Wordpress plugin.And with visual Insert-to-Page Wizard you won't need to touch a single line of code to embed it in your page.

 Awesome look to "wow" your visitors

Huge collection of beautiful skins and breath-taking effects is included and ready to go. Select and apply them in a single click.

Recent Demos

Simple to Use

The interface is easy and straightforward - just 3 steps:
1. Drop the images you want to add as slides.
2. Choose skin, effects, options.
3. Save slider as a stand-alone page, Wordpress plugin, Joomla module; embed in page with Insert-to-Page Wizard; publish to server via built-in FTP client.

Highly Customizable

Every slideshow parameter can be easily customized to fit your web site design and your needs. Enjoy features like: navigation control (with thumbnails, prev/next and stop/play buttons, bullets, filmstrip), auto-play, loop, random order, text descriptions, hide/show controls or stop on mouseover, image and thumbnail size, crop mode, slide delay, transition speed, watermark and much more!

Lightweight and fast

Most jquery sliders put all supported features in one bloated script. WOW jQuery carousel generates the engine script depending on setting you chose, so the final code is compact and has the required functionality only. For example the slider created with default settings is only 6Kb!

Touch/swipe navigation

With the growing trend of mobiles it is important that your website be accessible on all devices. WOW HTML slideshow includes the support for touch screen gestures to ensure that your visitors receive a smooth, native-like experience.

Responsive Design

WOW Responsive Slider is brilliantly responsive with any template, effect, options you choose. No matter what device people access your site from, the slider will look consistently perfect.

Live Preview

Manage all parameters of your slider using a live preview area. See exactly how it will look before you publish. Enjoy easy and fun customization "on-the-fly"

Visual Insert-to-Page

Not a coding guru? Don't know what is an HTML slider code? Just run Insert-to-Page Wizard, open a page, and click a place where you want the slideshow to appear. WOW javascript slider takes care of the rest. Truly NO coding experience!

All Browsers

WOW jQuery Slider runs perfectly on all old and new browsers, including IE6+, Firefox, Opera, Safari, Chrome on PC, Mac, iOs and Android. It has a well-structured and clear HTML code, readable by any search-engine spiders and text browsers.

Hate jQuery?

If you don't use jQuery in your project at all, it is not a good idea to add the heavy library just to slide pictures. Ok. Remove all Javascript and .js calls from a page - the WOW Slider will still work as a pure CSS slider! This pure CSS fallback also works great when Javascript is not supported or has been disabled.

Spectacular Theme Set

With theme collection, you are not stuck with only one look. Pre-designed templates help your sliders look professional from the start. The controls, fonts, colors, frames and backgrounds in each template are perfectly coordinated. Just drop photos or images and add your own words.

Impressive Animations

Use over 25 stunning transitions and effects for images and text that will affect your visitors in a big way. Keep your customers' attention focused on your website.

Joomla and Wordpress plugin

WOW jQuery Slider comes with Joomla and Wordpress slider plugin export so publishing your slideshow to your Wordpress or Joomla site was never as easy as this.

Full width slider

In contrast to boxed layout, full width option allows you to set your slider to span the whole width of the browser to make your images stand out.

Video Slides

Online video and Youtube particularly is now more popular than cable television. WOW image carousel provides a support for YouTube and Vimeo that allow you to liven up your slides by supplementing the regular images.

On-Demand Loading

Imagine you have a slideshow with 128 images. If to put all pictures to the plain HTML code it will dramatically slow down the page loading and performance. For this case WOW image slider has the "On-Demand Loading" option also known as "lazy loading" that loads only images that enter or are about to enter the viewport.

38-language interface

It doesn’t matter what is your native language, the WOW jQuery Slideshow app interface is already translated to 38 languages, from Africans to Vietnam! This greatly benefits users - who don't know English good enough - to quickly and efficiently start creating html slideshows.

Import from Flickr, Picasa

You can easily add photos from Flickr, Picasa, Photobucket to jQuery slider. Just paste the URL of photostream, photoset, album or single photo and define the number of imported images!

Mac and Windows

If you work cross-platform, on PC and Mac machines you can seamlessly set up and run WOW Slider on both Windows and Mac OS and use the same interface, features, and project files.

Publish to Facebook

Sharing your content on Facebook is getting more and more popular. Right from the toolbar, click Share and the slider is there. Turn your slideshow into a worldwide event.

FTP client

Built-in FTP client lets you instantly and securely send your jQuery slideshow files directly to your server, without having to use the separate FTP software.

SEO Friendly

The slider is built using plain HTML5, making it easy for search engines to efficiently crawl the site, while still looking really cool. This gives you the ability to not only please the search engines from sites like Google, but your site will be pleasing to customers as well, all at the same time.

Automatic Sizing and Cropping

Different images have the different size, resolution, orientation. With WOW Slider you'll not need several photo editors to get your pictures ready for slider. WOW jQuery Slider creates perfectly proportioned slide images specifically tailored around your size/crop settings.

Background Music

Images and text alone are often not enough to engage and capture the attention of your audience. Easily add pace and dynamism to your slider by including audio soundtrack.

Free Download

WOW jQuery Slider is free for non-commercial or testing purposes. If you want to set the WOW Slider on a university site, non-commercial blog or simply want to try to see if it fits your needs, just download the full-functional free version and use it for free.
