Implementing Simple jQuery Slideshow in Blogger

Simple jQuery Slideshow is a very basic Image slider plugin.Its main features include ability to cycles through slides at a time interval that we can set. It also has forward and back buttons so we can jump around between slides and each slide has a title, a description and a link associated with it.

? currentPosition 1 : currentPosition-1;

//hide/show controls
manageNav(currentPosition);

if(position==0){ $('#leftNav').hide() }
else { $('#leftNav').show() }
//hide right arrow is slide position is last slide
if(position==numberOfSlides-1){ $('#rightNav').hide() }
else { $('#rightNav').show() }
}


//changePosition: this is called when the slide is moved by the timer and NOT when the next or previous buttons are clicked
function changePosition() {
if(currentPosition == numberOfSlides - 1) {
currentPosition = 0;
manageNav(currentPosition);
} else {
currentPosition ;
manageNav(currentPosition);
}
moveSlide();
