Not a long story but I have added the bxslider
to a xoops block and decided to share.
I have written a how-to on my site, with a download of the files needed. I include the css files.
Right now it just tells how to add it to a side block, next week I will add, How to do it in a center block. The directions are fairly simple.
The story can be found Here
Let me know what you think,
