Add these items to the <head> of your document. This will link jQuery and the FlexSlider core CSS/JS files into your webpage. You can also choose to host jQuery on your own server, but Google is nice enough to take care of that for us!
<!-- Place somewhere in the <head> of your document -->
The FlexSlider markup is simple and straightforward. First, start with a single containing element, <div class="flexslider"> in this example. Then, create a <ul class="slides">. It is important to use this class because the slider targets that class specifically. Put your images and anything else you desire into each <li> and you are ready to rock.
<!-- Place somewhere in the <body> of your page -->
Step 3 - Hook up the slider
<!-- Place in the <head>, after the three links -->
...and voila! That wraps up the most basic installation of FlexSlider into your webpage.
Step 4 - Tailor to your needs
Listed below are all of the options available to customize FlexSlider to suite your needs, along with their default values. For examples on how to use these properties for advanced setups, check out the Advanced Options section.
animation: "fade", //Select your animation type (fade/slide/show)
slideshow: true, //Should the slider animate automatically by default? (true/false)
slideshowSpeed: 7000, //Set the speed of the slideshow cycling, in milliseconds
animationDuration: 500, //Set the speed of animations, in milliseconds
directionNav: true, //Create navigation for previous/next navigation? (true/false)
controlNav: true, //Create navigation for paging control of each clide? (true/false)
keyboardNav: true, //Allow for keyboard navigation using left/right keys (true/false)
touchSwipe: true, //Touch swipe gestures for left/right slide navigation (true/false)
prevText: "Previous", //Set the text for the "previous" directionNav item
nextText: "Next", //Set the text for the "next" directionNav item
randomize: false, //Randomize slide order on page load? (true/false)
slideToStart: 0, //The slide that the slider should start on. Array notation (0 = first slide)
pauseOnAction: true, //Pause the slideshow when interacting with control elements, highly recommended. (true/false)
pauseOnHover: false, //Pause the slideshow when hovering over slider, then resume when no longer hovering (true/false)
controlsContainer: "", //Advanced property: Can declare which container the navigation elements should be appended too. Default container is the flexSlider element. Example use would be ".flexslider-container", "#container", etc. If the given element is not found, the default action will be taken.
manualControls: "" //Advanced property: Can declare custom control navigation. Example would be ".flex-control-nav li a" or "#tabs-nav li", etc. The number of elements in your controlNav should match the number of slides/tabs (obviously).
