Request: Implement a Jquery slider for use in articles
When creating the Rodea: The Sky Soldier article we ran into comparison where side by side thumbnails were not sufficient. To make the point we were trying to make, we needed to be able to show an image in large scale and then show another image in large scale within that same space. Basically, we needed a proper image slider. I've wanted one before, but we never needed it, so I didn't bring it up. But this time we needed it, and we didn't have it. :( So the article went up with what I could scrounge up, a basic onmouseover switch using code that I googled. It works unreliably on desktops, and doesn't work on mobile devices... And I have no idea where the dots came from!
We could really use a proper image comparison solution. We do image comparisons all the time on the blog, and a proper slider would really help!

Obviously I'm not a coder, but Slick seems to have a lot of potential. It's open source (and on github) under the MIT license, and it is very customizable. Here it is in action. It could even replace the slider on the main page as well! But obviously, it doesn't need to be this one, any slider that is functional and can be used in the blog is sufficient.
