Add Featured Post slider in Blogger (homepage/below post) Carousel style
Couple of month ago I published a high-end featured post widget which can be add to sidebar of your Blogger blog. Here today I am publishing another featured post widget what you can use on your homepage or below posts. This widget is a jQuery slider also known as ticker image slider. This featured post slider is:
  • Simple: Easy to configure and customize
  • Small: Don’t take much space wherever you set it
  • Awesome: Smart and neat looking carousel style
Let’s see how it looks like and how to add it in Blogger blogs.
