Why WOW jQuery Slider?

An image slider is an image slider, and they're all roughly the same, correct? Not so quickly. What are the primary criteria for selecting any kind of web component? Compatibility, simplicity of setup, great performance, and an attractive design and feel. With our Slider we've tried to create the perfect html slider that covers all these needs and even more:

 Compatibility with the widest feasible range of browsers, devices, and web standards

Due to the standards-compliant, valid, semantic markup and properly optimized script, jQuery Slider looks and performs perfectly on all mobile devices, current and legacy browsers.

 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.

 Minimal efforts required to collect, design, and integrate into your online project

Save time by not having to code, learn yet another API, test, or photoshop. 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

A vast library of stunning skins and mind-blowing effects is included and ready to use. They may be selected and applied with 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 supports 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

jQuery Slider works flawlessly on all browsers, including Internet Explorer 6+, Firefox, Opera, Safari, and Chrome on PC, Mac, iOS, and Android. Its HTML code is well-structured and usable by all search engine crawlers and text browsers.

Hate jQuery?

It's not a good idea to include the hefty library simply to slide images if you don't use jQuery at all in your project. Ok. Remove all.js and Javascript calls from a website, and the WOW Slider will still function as a pure CSS slider! This pure CSS fallback also works great when Javascript is not supported or has been disabled.

Spectacular Theme Set

You are not limited to a single look while using a theme collection. Your sliders will seem more professional right away if you use pre-designed themes. Each template's controls, fonts, colors, frames, and backgrounds are all flawlessly synchronized. Simply drag and drop pics or images and fill in the details with your own text.

Impressive Animations

Use over 25 eye-catching transitions and effects for photos and text that will leave a lasting impression on your visitors. Maintain the center of your clients' attention on your website.

Joomla and Wordpress plugin

jQuery Image 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

Unlike the boxed style, the full width option enables you to let your slider stretch the whole width of the browser, making your photos stand out.

Video Slides

Cable television has been overtaken by online video, such as TikTok and YouTube. WOW image carousel can work YouTube and Vimeo that allow you to liven up your slides by supplementing the regular images.

On-Demand Loading

Assume you have a 128-picture slideshow. If you use simple HTML code for all of your images, the website will load and run much slower. For this case jQuery 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

No matter what language you speak at home, the jQuery Slideshow app interface has already been translated into 38 languages, ranging from African to Vietnamese! This allows people who don't speak English well enough to start generating html slideshows fast and easily.

Import from Instagram, Tiktok

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

Mac and Windows

You can set up and use jQuery Slider on both Windows and Mac OS and utilize the same interface, features, and project file if you operate cross-platform on any desktop.

Publish to Instagram

Sharing your content on Instagram 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 made of simple HTML5, which makes it easier for search engines to scan the site while still appearing great. This allows you to delight not just Google's search engines, but also your consumers.

Automatic Sizing and Cropping

Images come in a variety of sizes, resolutions, and orientations. WOW Slider eliminates the need for several photo editors to prepare your images for the slider. jQuery Slider generates properly proportional slide pictures based on your size/crop preferences.

Background Music

Often, images and text alone are insufficient to captivate and catch your audience's attention. By incorporating an audio soundtrack, you can easily add energy and drama to your slider.

Free Download

jQuery Slider is available for non-commercial or evaluation use. If you wish to use the WOW Slider on a university website, a non-commercial blog, or just to check if it matches your requirements, you may download and use the fully working free version.
