[resolved] Slider Navigation (5 posts)

    Is there an option to show a navigation on the slider? I have the arrows showing, but it would be helpful if there was a way to have a navigation also so users can easily jump from the current slide to a specific slide.

    If this is not an option in this plugin, is there an easy way to get a slide-id in the HTML markup so that I can create my own navigation? Currently I see that the image tag only has a class of "vegas-background" but no unique ID for each slide.

    I appreciate any help you can give.

    Thank you,

    There is not an option for this.

    To do this you would have to manually setup thumbnails and then you could use jQuery to do this. Something like this might work


    <div id="thumbnail-wrapper">
    <div id="thumbnail-1"><img src="thumbnail1.png" /></div>
    <div id="thumbnail-2"><img src="thumbnail2.png" /></div>
    <div id="thumbnail-3"><img src="thumbnail3.png" /></div>
    <div id="thumbnail-4"><img src="thumbnail4.png" /></div>


    jQuery( "#thumbnail-4" ).click(function() {
      jQuery.vegas('jump', 3); // Go to 4th background

    You'd have to repeat that javascript, one for each thumbnail. I'll be honest, I'm not going to guarantee that will work since I haven't tried it but it's worth a shot and should give an idea to springboard of off.

    Another good resource for more information: http://vegas.jaysalvat.com/documentation/slideshow/
