Hi, i have a wordpress theme that has a widget area across the top of it.

The theme does not come with a slider banner and i would like to put a slider into the widget area.

Does anyone know of or know if it is possible to add a slider into a widget area so that i can slide 2-3 images in and out?

Thanks in advance for your help

Yes, there are probably two trillion slider plugins created for WordPress and 1.9 trillion iof those are widget-based.

Ok, i only need one trillion of the widget based ones...

Ok... let me re-phrase the question.

Can anyone recommend a simple slider widget that will allow the admin to upload 4 images that slide in and out... i want a very basic one, which does not bloat the site because of it's 101 settings and options.
