Automatic Content Slider for Blogger using Nivo Slider part 1

July 21st, 2011

In this post is still on “Automatic Content Slider”. the difference is only in the css styles and javascript.
With little modification to be used for blogger.
How it works is still the same as the content slider before.
This article was inspired by a request from Dante Araujo.
he said if Nivo Slider is the best free content slider, it has some awesome transition effects, and very customizable, really superior.

The following is how it looks

Nivo Slider

Automatic in blogger Only for CSS 3 (Firefox 4 and above, chrome)
Not Work for IE

Step 1 : Apply Style

  1. Login to Blogger Dashboard and navigate to Layout > Edit Html
  2. Don’t click the checkbox which says ‘Expand Widget Templates’
  3. Find this

Then insert the script in front of it

  27. Ronald says:

    I apologize for being off-topic, but would you please please help me, I have problem with posting comment on some websites. Please have a look at this picture:

    It was captured when I was browsing
    As you can see the ‘Post comment as’ dropdown list couldn’t load properly.
    When I typed something in the box then click ‘Post comment’ or ‘Preview’, nothing happened.

    I have tried to re-install my browser (Firefox 5) and Java (Java 6 update 26).
    I have also tried Chrome browser.
    But no luck, the dropdown list still couldn’t load.

    Please give me your opinion about this problem, it will be very appreciated.
