How to use: Step by step instructions

1. Download and unzip the latest version of Digital Slideshow from GitHub. You can choose from uncompressed and minified version.
2. Look inside the js folder where you will find jquery-x.x.x.min.js and slideshow-x.x.x.js. Copy this folder with this 2 files to root of your server (use same file hierarchy otherwise you will have to edit file paths) and put this code snippet to header of your main HTML page. jQuery library have to be loaded first before slideshow-x.x.x.js. <script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-2.0.2.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/slideshow-1.0.0.js"></script>

3. Look inside folder css where you will find slideshow.css. Copy this folder to root of your server (use same file hierarchy otherwise you will have to edit file paths) and put this code snippet to header of your HTML page. <link rel="stylesheet" media="screen" href="css/slideshow.css" type="text/css" />
4. Look inside folder images/default/ where you find files arrow_left.png, arrow_right.png, nav_active.png, nav_unactive.png and ,transparent.png. These files are used in stylesheet file slideshow.css. By default slideshow.css will look for these images in folder called images/default/. Copy this folder to root of your server (use same file hierarchy otherwise you will have to edit file paths).
5. Put this HTML code snippet to body of main HTML page. Every image tag contains special attributes data-label and data-text where you can define label and description text if you want show description box for slide. <div id="slideshow">
  <div class="slides">
    <img src="slider/1.png" alt="image1" data-label="Slide Label 1" data-text="Slide Text 1" />
    <img src="slider/2.png" alt="image2" data-label="" data-text="" />
    <img src="slider/3.png" alt="image3" data-label="Slide Label 3" data-text="Slide Text 3" />
    <img src="slider/4.png" alt="image4" data-label="Slide Label 4" data-text="Slide Text 4" />
    <div class="description"></div>
    <div class="preloader"></div>
  <div class="navigation"></div>

6. And last step we have to initialize slideshow plugin. So put this javascript code snippet to header of HTML page: <script type="text/javascript">


        rootElement: 'slideshow', //identificator of slideshow HTML container
        w: 800, //width of of slideshow HTML container in px
        h: 300, //height of of slideshow HTML container in px
        autoplay: true //turn on autoplay mode



7. And here is the result :-)
