The jQuery Content slider has quickly become a staple for web designers who want their sites to stand out.

The slider includes vertical 3D scroll, horizontal 3D scroll animations as well as 2D vertical and horizontal scrolling, blind transitions and fades.

The User Role Editor WordPress Plugin from Shine PHP provides the perfect solution by providing one panel for all user permissions from which to customize each user’s capabilities. Once the plugin is activated, you can change the capabilities of any user in just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
