Several people have asked how to change the under of items displayed in the slider and how to change the sort order.
To change the number of items displayed use the code below.[sourcecode language=”html”]
Chris Coyier from CSS-Tricks built this really cool jQuery plugin that creates a content slider that will support any regular HTML in the slides. This is cool because many sliders I have used had limitations on what could be on the slides and did not offer many of the featuers the AnythingSlider does.
To get this working in SharePoint you will need to make sure you have a reference to jQuery in the page somewhere as well as a list for the slider to read from. For my example I am using an out of the box annoucements list. You will also need the files for the plugin download the anythingSlider plugin from css-tricks.com.
