Coin Slider: Image Slider with Unique Effects

After jqFancyTransitions I decided to release new jQuery image slider plugin with more unique transitions effects. I have ideas for new effects and after I didn’t find that somebody already implement that I create Coin Slider.


Thanks to you and your comments Coin Slider have lot of features that jqFancyTransitions didn’t have at the beginning.  Basically it’s a latest (and improved) version of jqFancyTransitions but with new ‘fancy’ transitions effects.

jqFancyTransitions slice your images in stripes, while Coin Slider slice them in squares. And that’s the main difference. With changing order of appearing those squares I achieve random, swirl, rain and straight effects.

While I was working on this I felt like I’m on college again. Creating order of squares appearance remind me on my college projects when I spent few night and days trying to solve some problem. Random and straight was simple, but swirl effect give me some trouble. Fortunately, I’m working with Milos Popovic who like to solve those kind of problems and he help me about swirl function. Kudos to Milos!

For rain effect I spent few rainy hours to built it and that’s why I gave him that name. Naming things is something that I’m not good at.

How to use

Download jQuery, Coin Slider javascript file and CSS file and include them on your page:

<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-1.4.2.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="coin-slider.min.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="coin-slider-styles.css" type="text/css" />

Add slider content and create one div with an id and put images and image descriptions, similar to:

<div id='coin-slider'>
	<a href="img01_url" target="_blank">
		<img src='img01.jpg' >
			Description for img01
	<a href="imgN_url">
		<img src='imgN.jpg' >
			Description for imgN

At the end all you have to do is to call Coin Slider:

<script type="text/javascript">
	$(document).ready(function() {


Coin Slider have a lot of options for helping you set slider as you want. If you want to have 900px wide slider, without navigation and with 5sec delay between images you’ll do this:

<script type="text/javascript">
	$(document).ready(function() {
		$('#coin-slider').coinslider({ width: 900, navigation: false, delay: 5000 });

List of all options

width: 565, // width of slider panel
height: 290, // height of slider panel
spw: 7, // squares per width
sph: 5, // squares per height
delay: 3000, // delay between images in ms
sDelay: 30, // delay beetwen squares in ms
opacity: 0.7, // opacity of title and navigation
titleSpeed: 500, // speed of title appereance in ms
effect: '', // random, swirl, rain, straight
navigation: true, // prev next and buttons
links : true, // show images as links
hoverPause: true // pause on hover


Be careuful with spw and sph because large numbers can cause transitions problems.
If you don’t set effect all effects will be implemented by random.

This slider is so fucking fail I don’t know where to start. no one wants these stupid fucking irremovable buttons on the bottom of the slider. Who the fuck would want this shit. Read your comments everyone wants them to go away but your solution for removing them is WRONG and there is zero support. you are a shitty developer my friend.

First off, great job! I want to know, how can I remove the bottom buttons that are below the images? The Previous & Next buttons are fine, but I don’t want the bottom buttons?

I found some mistake code when i’m resize a image, a opacity description layer can’t resize with setting.

I’m modified your code. I’m set your opacity description layer width same with image width size..



i’m sorry my english too bad.

thanks for your beautiful slider.
