Buyers asked for it and now it’s here. A complex, yet clean and minimal, micro banner rotator.

Need to fill a gap in your html layout? Why not, avoid all the hassle of customizing the large rotators and go straight for the micro-banner rotator. Optimized for multiple use on web pages, this little fellow has all of the features you have come to expect from the serious banner rotators, but here it’s all packages neatly into a small space.

This rotator is perfect for use in the side bar of your web page, showcasing products, news headlines, quotations , affiliates etc. etc.

With the flash vars xml path, it’s easy to embed multiple times in a html layout and with all of the customizable settings, each one can look completely different from the next.

Import your SWF’s and manually set the slide to continue when the movie finishes. Write lengthy captions and have the code automatically set your delay so that a reader has time to readit fully. Or don’t use captions at all.

Easily set all colors, caption positions and animations in the xml file. This item also includes a detailed help file.
