Get started

Ok, let`s start. As usual – we will prepare well structured folders:

  • css – which will contain our CSS stylesheets (nivo-slider.css, reset.css and style.css)
  • images – which will contain all used images
  • js – will contain JS files (html5.js, jquery.js, jquery.nivo.slider.pack.js and main.js)

Head section code

Now I am going to give you the usual HTML head area of index.html with the attached CSS/JS.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en"><head>
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
    <title>Rock portal single page layout | Script Tutorials</title>
    <meta charset="utf-8">

    <!-- Linking styles -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/reset.css" type="text/css" media="screen">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css" type="text/css" media="screen">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/nivo-slider.css" type="text/css" media="screen">

    <!-- Linking scripts -->
    <script src="js/jquery.js"></script>
    <script src="js/jquery.nivo.slider.pack.js"></script>   
    <script src="js/main.js"></script>

    <!--[if lt IE 9]>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="js/html5.js"></script>
    <![endif]-->
</head>

Moving forward – Main layout (body)

Whole layout consist of 3 main section: header (with logo, navigation menu and slider), main section (two column layout with extra menu block, list of artists, banner placement, friends section and news section at right) and footer (with copyrights and social buttons). It looks like:

<body>

JS for our template

Here are all necessary JS scripts:

js/html5.js, js/jquery.js and js/jquery.nivo.slider.pack.js

All these libraries already available in package

js/main.js

$(window).load(function() {
    $('#slider').nivoSlider({
        effect: 'random',
        slices:15,
        boxCols:10,
        boxRows:10,
        animSpeed:500,
        pauseTime:4000,
        directionNav:false,
        directionNavHide:false,
        controlNav:true,
        captionOpacity:1
    });
});

nivoSlider itself have very easy initialization – so I hope that all easy here too.
