Please report bugs and suggestions for features to GitHub issues.


  1. Download and extract miSlider
  2. Add the miSlider Plugin to your project - Copy the 'mislider.min.js' file to the scripts folder for your website and the 'mislider.min.css' file to the css folder
  3. Create the slides markup - Open the HTML page in which you want to add the slider and add the HTML. You can use any tags you like as long as you have elements for each slide, contained within an element for the slider, contained within an element for the stage. Example:

      <div class="mis-stage">
          <ol class="mis-slider">
              <li class="mis-slide">
                  <img src="images/garden01.jpg" alt="Lillies">
              <li class="mis-slide">
                  <img src="images/garden02.jpg" alt="Pond">

    Note: The classes are not required and will be automatically added by the plugin if absent. By default, miSlider is designed to work with an ordered list as demonstrated above. If you want to use different elements be sure to change the 'selectorSlider' and 'selectorSlide' options as defined in the Configuration section below.

  4. Reference jQuery - If jQuery is not present then add the following reference to the head of the HTML page

      <script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
  5. Reference the miSlider Plugin - Add the following references after the jQuery reference in the head of the HTML page

      <link href="styles/mislider.min.css" rel="stylesheet">
      <link href="styles/mislider-custom.css" rel="stylesheet">
      <script src="scripts/mislider.min.js"></script>
          jQuery(function ($) {
              var slider = $('.mis-stage').miSlider();

    Note: Make sure the jQuery selector ('.mis-stage') correctly selects the stage element defined in your HTML

  6. You're good to go


To change the default behaviour of the slider you can configure the slider by adding the following optional setting:

        jQuery(function ($) {
            var slider = $('.mis-stage').miSlider({
                //  The speed of the slide transition  
                //  in milliseconds. Options: positive integer.
                speed: 700,
                //  slide pause time between transitions  
                //  in milliseconds. Options: false, positive integer. 
                //  false = Autoplay off.
                pause: 4000,
                //  The number of slides to increment with  
                //  Autoplay and Nav Buttons. 
                //  Options: positive or negative integer. 
                //  Positive integer = Slide left. 
                //  Negative integer = Slide right.
                increment: 1,
                //  The height of the stage in px. 
                //  Options: false or positive integer. 
                //  false = height is calculated using 
                //  maximum slide heights.
                stageHeight: false,
                //  Number of slides visible at one time. 
                //  Options: false or positive integer. 
                //  false = Fit as many as possible.
                slidesOnStage: 1,
                //  Continuous motion - Boolean. 
                //  true = slides loop in one direction if possible.
                slidesContinuous: true,
                //  The location of the current slide on the stage. 
                //  Options: 'left', 'right', 'center'.
                slidePosition: 'left',
                //  The slide to start on. 
                //  Options: 'beg', 'mid', 'end' 
                //  or slide number starting at 1 - '1','2', etc.
                slideStart: 'beg',
                //  The width of the current slide in px. 
                //  Options: false or positive integer. 
                //  false = width is the maximum of 
                //  the existing slide widths.
                slideWidth: false,
                //  The relative percentage scaling factor 
                //  of the current slide
                //  other slides are scaled down. 
                //  Options: positive number 100 or higher. 
                //  100 = No scaling.
                slideScaling: 100,
                //  The vertical offset of the slide center 
                //  as a percentage of slide height. 
                //  Options:  positive or negative number. 
                //  Neg value = up. Pos value = down. 
                //  0 = No offset.
                offsetV: 0,

To style the slider, create a new stylesheet, name it 'mislider-custom.css' and save it to your CSS folder (Note: Add a reference to the stylesheet as illustrated above if you haven't already). Add your custom CSS to this file. By default miSlider uses the following class names:
