2. Carousels and Content Sliders are a great way of exposing users to a lot of content without overpowering them with options. A lot of people choose Flash for the same purpose, but flash is awful for SEO purposes, is limited because not all of your users will have it installed on their computer, and is more difficult to update. I’ve found two great carousels that can be applied to either photos or content, and have a lot of customization abilities. Check out jcarousel by Jan Sorgalla, or for a slightly lighter version (the one I ended up using) take a look at jcarousellite. Another one I’ve found out there is at cssglobe.com, which seems pretty sweet as well.
Those are just a handful of examples of pre-written JS that you can use. In upcoming posts I’ll write a little bit about simple JS that you can implement easy peasy on your own without any coding background.
