How to use Blueberry

  • By default the slider will assume the width of it's parent element, this can be tweaked with CSS min/max-width.
  • All images should be of equal dimensions. The slider will assume the height & width of the first image.
  • The blueberry function must be called inside $(window).load() to avoid a bug in webkit browsers (see markup below).
  • Don't forget to include the blueberry.css style sheet. This sets the base styles that are required for the slider to work.
  • You can add the .crop class too the ul.slides element to crop the images rather than resizing them, try it!
  • When themeing avoid applying any padding or margin to the ul.slides element. The safest option is to wrap it in another
    and style that instead.

Known issues

  • Transition timing can become out of sync, appears to be caused by 'pause on hover' which has been disabled by default.
  • Two or more sliders on a single page don't appear to function correctly, appears to be timer related.
