For all jQuery Lovers out there, i’ve built a simple but powerful jQuery Slider/Gallery Plugin which is realy easy to use – and its small with just 5kb of filesize.


  1. Example 1 – Standard without any options
  2. Example 2 – with Thumbnail navigation
  3. Example 3 – Clean without any navigations
  4. Example 4 – left Descriptiontext and 10 Elements
  5. Example 5 – all options used


  • easy to use and to customize via options
  • different effects
  • optional number or image navigation
  • optional next/prev navigation

  1. what do you sprechen for a sprach? what is a jquery? and what a kamasutrastellung is:
    “top”, “right”, “bottom”, “left”, “topright”, “topleft”, “bottomright”, “bottomleft” ?

  2. Thank you for the slider, it fits perfectly my needs. There is only a little bug when initialising the gallery/ when loading the site: the first loop displays the images with a 30 pixels margin from the left.. the loops that come afterwards work all fine.

    again, thanks a lot!

  3. Thank you for this nice slider.

    I saw, that it’s not possible to use two or more sliders on one page. I want to do a gallery with categories. There are thumbnails and with a click on it, I would open your slider.

    Do you have a workaround for my problem or you know how I could solve this?


  4. I already solved my problem.

    I’m using now a CSS-Class (not ID) for the Slider and certainly two lists with the images.

    $(‘.slider’).kollermedia_slider({ […] in Javascript

    […] in the HTML

    .slider li {position:absolute;} […] in CSS

    One little problem is that the animation effect is only on the active slider (can change when user click on other slider or manually changes picture). But I want to have this so.

  5. Hi,

    A client of ours also has pages with only one image in the slider (I know . . . ).

    Can you please update your code and wrap the startSlider with a:

    if ( items.length > 1) {

  7. Many thanks for this script. It’s exactly what I needed… and as is usual for me, I found it accidentally when I was looking for something else!
