How to Add jShowOff jQuery Content Slider to Blogger

jShowOff is a jQuery plugin for creating a rotating content module. It works by creating 'slides' from the child elements (eg. <li>) inside a specified wrapper element (eg. <ul>) on which .jshowoff() is invoked. It then rotates through the slides, with options for controls, links, and more. This type of module is often used to promote pages, sections, or features on a site.

To include jShowOff jQuery Content Slider to your blogger blog, follow the steps given below.
