Install Guide #back to top

Copy all folders (css,js, images) from the files directory to your server's document root folder, next to your index.html file.


Open your index.html file and if you already using jQuery, then locate it and copy the following lines right after the included jQuery file:


If you have already included jQuery UI as well the jQuery, then you can ignore the second line above. Without jQuery and jQuery UI, you have to add the following lines:


These lines must be included between the <head> and </head> element of your website. In some cases, you can also place the JS files at the bottom of your file before the </body> closure tag.

HTML Markup

Place the images with the following markup between the <body> and the </body> tags:


If you would like to add texts for the images, then use the following structure:

  • Professionalism
  • Responsibility
  • Confidence
  • Helpfulness

With the style tag, you can add inline style customization to each texts. The margin-top and margin-left attributes are the positions from the top and the left corner of the screen.

Basic Initialization

You have integrated the required files and added the HTML markup that contains your images, so you need to start the plugin now and customize the options to fit to your needs. Place the following default configuration after the included JS files in the <head> tag:


In this state of the integration, the plugin needs to work when you call your index.html in your browser. Read more about the customization options in the next sections.

Customization #back to top

Changing the Background Color

Set the background color with the background parameter (HEX color code: #fff or simply define the color, eg.: white):


Adding Pattern

If you would like to add pattern, it is possible to specify in the pattern parameter. Use pattern1, pattern2, patter3,...,pattern20 values. By default, the plugin using the pattern.png ( if the pattern parameter doesn't specified ). You can remove the pattern with false value.


Changing the Font Family

Set the font family with the fontfamily parameter (Google Fonts, see the full list here: Google Fonts):


Alternative way to set the Font Family ( Manual Setting )

Add this line to the head section of your index.html to implement the selected Google Font Family file (Frijole in this example):


Then you can add the font-family: 'Frijole',Arial; attribute to the div style tag::

  • Professionalism
  • Responsibility
  • Confidence
  • Helpfulness

Customizing the Animation

The animation_time is the full playing time of the slideshow in seconds. With animation_type it is possible to specify the style of the animation. You can use the following values:

crossfade (default value), slidefade, randomslide, rotatefade, slidelefttoright, slidelefttoleft, slidelefttotop, slidelefttobottom, sliderighttoright, sliderighttoleft, sliderighttotop, sliderighttobottom, slidetoptotop, slidetoptobottom, slidetoptoleft, slidetoptoright, slidebottomtotop, slidebottomtobottom, slidebottomtoleft, slidebottomtoright, glidelefttoright, glidelefttoleft, glidelefttotop, glidelefttobottom, gliderighttoright, gliderighttoleft, gliderighttotop, gliderighttobottom, glidetoptotop, glidetoptobottom, glidetoptoleft, glidetoptoright, glidebottomtotop, glidebottomtobottom, glidebottomtoleft, glidebottomtoright


Animation Control

To add or remove play / pause button to the screen, just pass true or false in the control parameter (true by default):


Handling the Images Loaded Event

By default the images are preloaded with the plugin and you can call your own function to handle the event, when the images has been loaded. Simply pass the function with the loaded parameter:



The following methods are available currently:

  • jQuery('.fsb-slider').init() - initialize the plugin
  • jQuery('.fsb-slider').destroy() - destroy the plugin
  • jQuery('.fsb-slider').updatepattern({ pattern: 'pattern4' }) - change the pattern in real-time

F.A.Q. #back to top

With more than 4 images, the CrossFade animations looks like bad, the images are cluttered. How can I set the animation?

The plugin works with CSS3 animations, therefore you can change the animations in the fullscreen_background_slider.css Modifications are quite easy, just search for the animation name (eg.: crossfade) and you will find 5 sections with that name:

  • @-webkit-keyframes crossfade
  • @-moz-keyframes crossfade
  • @-o-keyframes crossfade
  • @-ms-keyframes crossfade
  • @keyframes crossfade

These are almost the same, just need it for the different browsers (only using different prefixes) If you found the animation you are looking for, just modify the percentage/opacity/scale values to change the effect.
