I'm building a WP theme that requires a splash graphic "slider" widget (similar to what you see on cnet.com).
I'd like to build one myself, mainly so I can have full control over the bits, but if there are any available with licensing options for inclusion in commercial shipping software, I'd consider those as well.
Does anyone have an example they could share of creating a "graphic slider" widget (or plugin) using the built in WP jQuery script via enqueue?
By "graphic slider" I just mean a script that displays a series of named images, along with an index at the bottom that shows the current slide and allows tracking back/forward and to specific slides in the rotation.
It would be a bonus, if the widget had a control panel to allow the user to upload/delete each slider graphic as well as define the target URL for each image in a user friendly GUI with upload capability.
Thanks in advance for the help. Hope the question is not too conceptual.
