Need support or custom features?

Anything is possible! For a small fee i can help you implement the script in your project. Missing any features? I can build them for you!!

Examples


$(document).ready(function()
{
    $('#circleslider1').tinycircleslider();
});
                

$(document).ready(function()
{
    $("#circleslider2").tinycircleslider({
        interval : true
    ,   dotsSnap : true
    });
});
                

Note: There is no lightbox natively in tiny circleslider for this example fancybox was used.


$(document).ready(function()
{
    $("#circleslider3").tinycircleslider({
        dotsSnap : true
    ,   radius   : 170
    ,   dotsHide : false
    });

    $("#circleslider3").find("a").fancybox();

});
                

To get a better understanding of how it all comes together I made a (corny) styled example. If someone can make a nicer design it would be greatly appreciated :)


$(document).ready(function()
{
    $("#circleslider4").tinycircleslider({
        dotsSnap : true
    ,   radius   : 215
    ,   dotsHide : false
    ,   interval : true
    });
});
                

Initialize options

A list of all the available options and there default value

  • interval : false -- move to another block on intervals.
  • intervalTime : 3500 -- time between intervals.
  • dots : true -- automatic placement of dots or use predefined location on slide.
  • dotsSnap : false -- shows dots when user starts dragging and snap to them.
  • dotsHide : true -- fades out the dots when user stops dragging.
  • lightbox : false -- when you have links with a lightbox attached this most be true for normal links to work correctly this must be false.
  • radius : 140 -- Used to determine the size of the circleslider

The image below displays how you calculate the radius of your circleslider. The center of your slider to the center of the outside circle is your radius.

$(document).ready(function()
{
    // You can access the methods and properties of your
    // slider instance straight after initialization.
    //

    // This part you can do from whatever place in your
    // code as long as the slider allready is initialized.

    // Now you have access to all the methods and properties.
    //
    // box.update();
