It is a common approach to fill in the intro section of a website with a slideshow: you’re trying to show the users as much as you can above the fold, yet you want to deliver this information in an organized and clean way. In this tutorial you’ll learn how to build a ready-to-use jQuery slider, with some built in options like video/image backgrounds and different text alignments. In an attempt to increase user engagement, you’ll replace the “navigation arrows” with buttons. The difference is: buttons have a title, a hint about what kind of content to expect. Arrows just tell users “you can switch slide”.
