This slider has a 100% width layout and it is responsive. It operates with CSS transitions and the image is wrapped with an anchor. The anchor can be replaced by a division if no linking is needed. With a max-width set to 100%, the image will size down for smaller screens.

The HTML

<div id="cbp-fwslider" class="cbp-fwslider">
	<ul>
		<li><a href="#"><img src="images/1.jpg" alt="img01"/></a></li>
		<li><a href="#"><img src="images/2.jpg" alt="img02"/></a></li>
		<li><a href="#"><img src="images/3.jpg" alt="img03"/></a></li>
		<li><a href="#"><img src="images/4.jpg" alt="img04"/></a></li>
		<li><a href="#"><img src="images/5.jpg" alt="img05"/></a></li>
	</ul>
</div>

    Thank you

    Issues in Chrome. The slider is working in all browsers except Chrome where the first image is not hiding it stays a background image as the other images slide over it. You can check it out here. The only change that I have made is that the slider pulls images from a database.

    Any help would be great!

    How can i put an automation in this? So that it will slide every 10 seconds or so?
    Please help
    Thanks

    Hey, this is just what I had been looking for. Can’t believe I found a responsive image slider here right when I needed it, lol. Once again, this website pulls through. Amazing: it’s so simple and yet so functional.

    I do have a question for anyone who sees this. How would I make this loop back to the first item in the list when you’ve gotten to the last one and click “next”? Which is to say, I’d need the nav buttons to stay present for this to happen, too. I think this is all else I need it to do (but I’ve noted the autoplay stuff from the comments, too, just in case).

    Hello! Great plugin! However I seem to be having an issue with multiple sliders on one page. The first one fires the js and works totally fine, but all of the other sliders are just showing the images next to one another.

    Am I missing something? Or does the code need to be changed?

      Hi Artem,
      this seems to work fine:

      <div id="cbp-fwslider" class="cbp-fwslider">
      <ul>
      <li><a href="#"><img src="images/1.jpg" alt="img01"/></a></li>
      <li><a href="#"><img src="images/2.jpg" alt="img02"/></a></li>
      <li><a href="#"><img src="images/3.jpg" alt="img03"/></a></li>
      <li><a href="#"><img src="images/4.jpg" alt="img04"/></a></li>
      <li><a href="#"><img src="images/5.jpg" alt="img05"/></a></li>
      </ul>
      </div>
      <div id="cbp-fwslider2" class="cbp-fwslider">
      <ul>
      <li><a href="#"><img src="images/1.jpg" alt="img01"/></a></li>
      <li><a href="#"><img src="images/2.jpg" alt="img02"/></a></li>
      <li><a href="#"><img src="images/3.jpg" alt="img03"/></a></li>
      <li><a href="#"><img src="images/4.jpg" alt="img04"/></a></li>
      <li><a href="#"><img src="images/5.jpg" alt="img05"/></a></li>
      </ul>
      </div>


      $( '#cbp-fwslider' ).cbpFWSlider();
      $( '#cbp-fwslider2' ).cbpFWSlider();

      Was it something like this you tried?

    Using the autoplay function from these comments, how would I be able to pause the autoplay when the user has their mouse over the slide?

    This is the autoplay code using:

    autoplay : function(){
    if((this.current) == (this.itemsCount-1)){
    this.current = -1;
    }
    else{
    this._navigate(‘next’);
    }
    },
    interval : function(){
    var that = this;
    setInterval(function(){
    return that.autoplay();
    }, 3000);
    },

    hi there,

    can any one tell me how to change “EASE” to FadeIn with this slider

    Best, Harsha.Ch

    Hi all,

    The slider works great on my site, except for one thing. The last image in the list is about 15-20px below the rest of the images that came before it. Almost touching the dot nav. Any advice in changing the code to fix this issue? Thanks in advance for the help.

      I was able to figure out the issue, I had 2 lines of codes missing in my css and forgot to apply the clearfix prior the slider. Hope that helps others that run into the same problem.

    Hello,

    Can someone please tell me why the last image in the slider becomes lower on the line then the previous images? Is there something in my script I should be making sure I have?

    Thanks.

    – Emily
