Hey everyone I am new to the forums. I am trying to wrap my head around jquery and really have no idea where to begin. What I am trying to do is create a slider that auto scrolls 3-4 images from right to left with no controls. And if the user hovers over it, it stops so they can read the content that is featured. Everywhere I search there are bunch of plugins i.e. easyslider, s3slider, etc. that have tons of code that is greek to me. I tried using the easyslider code and changing things around for it to do what I want, but I was unsuccessful. If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated. One more thing, what is the easiset way to learn jquery? I really want to get it down and learn the language, but have no idea where to start. Should I buy a book? Read tutorials?
What do you know about the prerequisits for jQuery, i.e., what do you know about:
Google for some jQuery tutorials and see what you can make of it.
- conditional statements (if / switch)
- loops (for / while)
Optional, but good to know:
- singleton pattern
Thanks for the advice. Much appreciated.
