Sliding on Hover Jquery Featured Post Slider For Blogger


Every Blogger Dreams to make his blog attractive with perfect image content sliders. Usually image content sliders works on automation. So they don’t really allow you to select the certain post that you want to view. They keep on sliding the same thing in front of your eyes and in that situation you are unable to do any thing, which is biggest problem that you face with these content sliders. This was the reason why, in our previous post we introduced a Shuttingup and down Featured post Widget for Blogger.

But, today we will introduce a greatly new and improved Slide on Hover Feature Post Widget for Blogger with JQuery effect. It will change the entire reflection of your blog. In this widget you can add up to 5 featured posts with their large images, titles and little descriptions. So today we will going to Add Sliding on Hover JQuery Featured Post Widget for Blogger

How This Slide on Hover Slider Widget Works:

This is not an ordinary slider, it is totally different from all other sliders which makes it unique. Basically this Slide on Hover Slider consist of 5 featured posts and when ever you'll place your mouse on any certain post in the slider, it will expand the post that you have selected.

So I am certain you would love to see the live demo, so here it is give it a try before adding it to your blog.
I am sure after viewing the live demo you would love to add it in your blog. So without wasting any time let us start our mouse rolling on our tutorial.

  • Now Backup Your template (Incase any thing goes wrong)
  • Now Click on Proceed >> Edit HTML
  • Now Search for the Following Code in your template with (CTRL+F Shortcut to Search)

/* MBL-Slide-On-Hover-Featured-Slider-Widget */
#slider {
  border:1px solid #aaa;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  width: 957px;
  height: 320px;
  overflow: hidden;
  border-bottom-left-radius: 5px;
  border-bottom-right-radius: 5px; }
.kwicks { position:relative }
.kwicks li{
width: 192px;
height: 320px;
display: block;
overflow: hidden;
padding: 0px; }
.fadeout {
  border-right:1px solid #aaa;
  display: block;
  position: absolute;
  right: 0;
  width: 300px;
  height: 320px;      
  z-index: 4;
  background: url( repeat-y scroll top right transparent; }
#kwick_5 .fadeout { border-right:none }
.kwicks.horizontal li { margin-right: 0px; float: left; }
.kwicks.vertical  li { margin-bottom: 5px; }
.kwicks .excerpt {
  background: #fff;
  color: #000;
  opacity: 0.9;
  position: absolute;
  padding: 10px;

    height: 76px;
    line-height: 26px;
    font-size: 14px;
    text-transform:uppercase; }
  • Now After Pasting the above code in your template save your template by pressing Save Template button 

 Adding JQuery Scripts To Blogger Template:

Now we will add Jquery Scripts in our template to do so.
  • Go to Blogger >> Your Blog >>
  • Now Click >> Layout >> Add a Gadget 
  • Now Select >> Add HTML/JavaScript >> And then just paste the following code there

<script type='text/javascript'>//<![CDATA[

Editorial Team MOD
May 1, 2012 at 9:38 AM

@Ramakrishna Ch
Brother there are some widgets which operate automatically with the help of RSS Feeds. But there are no Image Slider widgets which have this feature. But there are some Photo Gallery widgets Which updates automatically. But they don't have a Sliding effect instead they are optimized with Glow and vanish effect. Peace and Blessing Buddy
