JW Nivo

Thumbnail for JW Nivo

The popular Nivo Image slider, is now an EE fieldtype!

Easy to Use

Images can be added straight from the publish page using the standard EE file manager or Pixel & Tonic's Assets into an easy to use matrix-esque table. You can add, remove and re-order images as well as specify a caption, link URL and alt text for each image.


Supporting all options available in the Nivo Slider jQuery plugin, you lose nothing and don't have to spend ages configuring a custom solution. All options are configurable at both the channel and individual entry level. You can even create a custom theme, drop it in the themes folder and JW Nivo will detect it for use!

Fast Front-end

Resized images are cached for quick page loading. JW Nivo will only embed the styles and scripts once—even if you have multiple sliders on a single page! JW Nivo will also load jQuery from the Google CDN—but only if you haven't loaded it already!
