One of the features I’ve always missed in SharePoint OOTB is a News Slider, and with SharePoint 2013 and the new web standards for “mobile first cloud first” ect… what I’ve been missing is a Responsive News Slider.
The solution is SharePoint Content by Search and a good JQuery Slider of your choice.
What do you need?
- The above JQuery Add-on or any other
- SharePoint Content By Search
How do you proceed?
- Create a copy of one of the default display control templates(I’ve used the “Slider” template)
In this template add the references to the custom jQuery and css
Call the jquery function and css class
- If needed create your own “Item display template”
In SharePoint style library create a new folder named “Slider” and add the resource files:
- Publish the files and configure your Content by Search with the above display template
The Result is a beautiful slider, the slider will be able to display dynamic content from both image libraries and pages libraries:
Slider on desktop:
Slider on mobile:
