At the top of the page is a slider that shows five posts with an image. It's the reason I chose this new design template. I looked high and low for a slider we could just add to the old template, but couldn't find one. So, we got a whole new template for the blog mainly for the slider.
We've gotten feedback that it's the best new feature of the design.
The only problem? It's manual. I have to update the slider every day. So, on a busy week like this it doesn't get updated too often.
If we were on Wordpress we could choose a jquery wordpress plugin like SlideDeck that could do the job for us. I heard there's a way to add it to Blogger, but I can't get it to work.
There's are a huge list of great plug-ins for Wordpress. Not so many for Blogger. We may move someday, but Blogger is pretty cool, so we'll stay for now.
Have you ever wondered about the slider? Is there a Blogger plugin you'd recommend?
