That would be JCaouselLite. A jQuery plugin: [plugins.jquery.com...] You will likely need to style it to suit your needs but that's the plugin.

Well, just because it's jQuery doesn't mean you couldn't implement it without coding. There are a bunch of slider plugins out there and most of them use jQuery or other code library. Most of the stuff you see (eg the visuals on the page) are controlled by a combination of things you can easily change like settings in the admin area and CSS.

> don't use jquery

most do that I have seen.

this is a pretty good one: [jqueryslider.org...] I recently went through dozens of the major sliders till I settled on that one.

A good list:

tangor - no. jQuery is a Javascript library as is MooTools. To include a slider on your website places an expectation on the user - they have have to have JavaScript enabled or they can't see the good stuff. Personally I think this is fine.

Ya, it is true that devs need to keep jquery out of the navigation controls. Most use it as featured content displays or photo sliders. The page should still function great with js off.

Guys, I am creating a tutorial on how to implement this on your website (if your a noob), because the docs on this is rarely poor(for me). will post it here too!
