Create An Image SlideShow - Part 2

Instructions to add this widget:

Download these files:

Download them as a zipped file

Upload both the files to either or (you need to register first), and get the DIRECT LINKS to the files.

The coding part:

Log in to Blogger, go to Layout -> Edit HTML
Now find this in the template code:


And immediately ABOVE/BEFORE it, add these lines:

<!– CSS –>
<style type=”text/css” media=”screen”>
#slider1 {
width: 720px; /* important to be same as image width */
height: 300px; /* important to be same as image height */
position: relative; /* important */
overflow: hidden; /* important */

#slider1Content {
width: 720px; /* important to be same as image width or wider */
position: absolute;
top: 0;
margin-left: 0;
.slider1Image {
float: left;
position: relative;
display: none;
.slider1Image span {
position: absolute;
font: 10px/15px Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
padding: 10px 13px;
width: 694px;
background-color: #000;
filter: alpha(opacity=70);
-moz-opacity: 0.7;
-khtml-opacity: 0.7;
opacity: 0.7;
color: #fff;
display: none;
.clear {
clear: both;
.slider1Image span strong {
font-size: 14px;
.left {
top: 0;
left: 0;
width: 110px !important;
height: 280px;
.right {
right: 0;
bottom: 0;
width: 90px !important;
height: 290px;
ul { list-style-type: none;}
<!– JavaScripts–>
<script type=”text/javascript” src=”………/jquery.js”></script>
<script type=”text/javascript” src=”………/s3Slider.js”></script>
<script type=”text/javascript”>
$(document).ready(function() {
timeOut: 4000

Replace the links in red, with the DIRECT LINKS you got from the second step, and save the template.

Then go to Layout -> Page Elements
And click on “Add a Gadget“, select it as “HTML/JavaScript” type.

And this content to the widget:

<div id=”slider1″>
<ul id=”slider1Content”>
<li class=”slider1Image”>
<a href=””><img src=”images/wide/1.jpg” alt=”1″ /></a>
<span class=”left”><strong>Title text 1</strong><br />Content text…</span></li>
<li class=”slider1Image”>
<a href=””><img src=”images/wide/2.jpg” alt=”2″ /></a>
<span class=”right”><strong>Title text 2</strong><br /&gt;Content text…Content text…Content text…Content text…Content text…Content text…Content text…Content text…Content text…Content text…Content text…</span></li>
<li class=”slider1Image”>
<img src=”images/wide/3.jpg” alt=”3″ />
<span class=”right”><strong>Title text 2</strong><br />Content text…</span></li>
<li class=”slider1Image”>
<img src=”images/wide/4.jpg” alt=”4″ />
<span class=”left”><strong>Title text 2</strong><br />Content text…</span></li>
<li class=”slider1Image”>
<img src=”images/wide/5.jpg” alt=”5″ />
<span class=”right”><strong>Title text 2</strong><br />Content text…</span></li>
<div class=”clear slider1Image”></div>

Now replace the links in red with the Direct Links to your own images.
Change the Class=”left/right” to display the text at either left or right of the widget,
and also change the titles and content (in blue).

Finally save the widget. And drag the widget to wherever you like. You may also directly embed the widget in a blog post. If you want to use the other two widgets, then wait for the next posts.

By default, this widget has a width of 720px, so to change it simply change the value to 600px (at two places in the code above, highlighted in blue)
