We are proud to announce a new enhancement to the Content Rotator module.  It now supports touch swipe controls.  The Content Rotator has always worked on mobile and touch devices, but interaction with a touch device was awkward.  Now users with phones or tablets can swipe over the Content Rotator to change slides.  Also, users on a PC or Mac can click and drag (mouse-swipe) to change between slides. In addition, we also added the option to provide custom JavaScript for each slide.  The JavaScript is executed whenever a slide is clicked ("OnClick" event).  This was a useful feature for our own home page, so we decided to release it for our power user customers. If you have suggestions for new features, feel free to contact us with your suggestions.  If you need assistance with any feature, please use our support website to submit a support ticket....
