Adding some features to your Blogger site like a jQuery image gallery slider gives a new dimension to your site by making it more attractive to visitors. I’ll be sharing with you a nice tutorial I learned from the guys at Bloggertrix on how you can add this awesome slider. They made it easier for you to integrate into your site by using jQuery and CSS3.

The steps are simple:

  • Login to Blogger > Blogger Dashboard > Click on the drop down menu.
  • Select Layout
  • Click Add Gadget > HTML/Javascript
  • Copy and paste this code provided below
style type="text/css">
