Implementing SuperSized in Blogger



Supersized jQuery PluginSupersized is a jQuery plugin that automatically resizes (background) images to the size of the browser while maintaining image dimension ratio and runs them as a slideshow in simple words its a Full Screen Slider.

There is no extra whitespace, no scrollbars – the entire browser window is always filled. It is lightweight and is compatible with Firefox, Safari, Opera, IE7, and IE6. It also allows integration with Flickr API.

Full screen slider? That may bot be good for blogs. We don't want our visitors to be annoyed. Also the loading speed of our blog will be affected.

We can take advantage of this sliding background by using our advertisement offers right? So it's good for some reason.

@Nagaria S Tang
Can you give the URL of the blog ,where you have implemented this plugin

JLSA said...

Not working! Tried everything... Help!

@JLSACan you provide a URL where you have implemented it ?

JLSA said...

Tweeked a few things and got it working fine on Apple Safari but unfortunately not on Windows Explorer. Any ideas? www.jlsa.co.uk. ?

Your Blog contains more than two instances of jQuery Library. Remove any one of them and see if it works

JLSA said...

WHi PV. Thanks for your response but what exactly am I looking for? Tried various edits, researched more about jQuery Library and still can't find a solution. Can you please be a little more detailed? For example is the edit required in the blog post or the actual HTML code in layout? Many many thanks. J

Mailed you the possible solution..

Miguel said...

Hey, thanks so much for this man !!
How do I hyperlink the images ??

Miguel said...

Please help me !! Thanks :)

Miguel said...

Nevermind, I figured it out, thanks again for this guide :)

I don't understand where/how to implement point 4 [adding images to plugin] Please help!

Just paste all the Code present in Step 4 and Observe the Line 31-45 , they contain the Image URL's . You can replace them with yours or entirely remove them if you want
