SharePoint Featured Content Slider

SharePoint Featured Content Slider for 2010

SharePoint Featured Content Slider

So I rewrote this web part to work a little better in SharePoint 2010. I made a few minor changes and improvements. If you can think of other improvements put them in the comments. Here is the older version.

Whats new

  • Added an order field to the List template to allow more control of the display order. In the list template this field is setup to require unique values.
  • Re-wrote the CSS to include some new CSS3 enhancements. If you are using a newer browser the slider will look better.
  • Tested across muliple browsers. See screenshots below.

The Code

Here is the XSL needed to add the web part to the page.
