I love when software is super simple …

Faded is a super simple fading image and content viewer for jQuery by Nathan Searles. It’s Easy to setup and design to YOUR specifications.

It features:

  • auto generated pagination
  • an awesome sequential image loader
  • fancy crossfading
  • essentially no CSS required
  • a number of custom options for you to set (if you’d like)

Markup for content

<div id="faded">
  <ul>
    <li>Slide 1 Copy</li>
    <li>Slide 2 Copy</li>
    <li>Slide 3 Copy</li>
    <li>Slide 4 Copy</li>
  </ul>
  <a href="#" class="prev">prev</a>
  <a href="#" class="next">next</a>
</div>

Markup for images

<div id="faded">
  <div>
    <img src="01.jpg" alt="" />
    <img src="02.jpg" alt="" />
    <img src="03.jpg" alt="" />
    <img src="04.jpg" alt="" />
  </div>
  <a href="#" class="prev">prev</a>
  <a href="#" class="next">next</a>
</div>

Initialize

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
  $(function(){
    $("#faded").faded();
  });
</script>
