Installation Essential steps

Link CSS
Move the slider CSS file to your server and link to it in the head section of your document.

 <link rel="stylesheet" href="refineslide.css" />

(This is just for the base CSS rules. You'll also want to include some styling to make the slider look good - check out the 'dark theme' stylesheet in the download as an example.)

Link JS
Move the slider JS file to your server and link to it before the closing body tag. Please note that you must include jQuery (v1.7 or later) before the slider JS file.

<script src="jquery-1.7.1.min.js"></script>
    <script src="jquery.refineslide.min.js"></script>

Add a dash of markup to your document following the pattern below. (Images should be the same size as one another.)

<ul class="rs-slider">
        <li><img decoding="async" src="img1.jpg" alt="" /></li>
        <li><img decoding="async" src="img2.jpg" alt="" /></li>
        <li><img decoding="async" src="img3.jpg" alt="" /></li>

Call slider
Just before the closing body tag (after any JS file includes), call the slider with code below:

        $(document).ready(function () {
