The Hot Spinner is a WordPress 3D carousel plugin that rotates images around a circle. In the center of the circle, there’s an infobox that shows relevant content for each image in the rotation. You can also control rotation with mouse moves.

Although WordPress 3D carousel is Flash-like software, it is 100% based on jQuery (no Flash needed).

Options of the Hot Spinner WordPress 3D carousel plugin allow you to set the overall width and height and make the widget fits into your theme’s available space. You can also control the rotation radius and perspective angle. You can select the vertical position of the infobox and select one of 3 available animation effects for the box. The rotation speed option of the icons/images is also customizable. You can enable the reflection of the images and control their height and opacity. Fonts of the infobox are customizable, so you can easily select the font for the headings and font for the infobox text. You can also change the font’s color and style. In the info box of the WordPress 3D carousel, there’s also an image beside text that can be left or right-aligned.

You can enter content for the WordPress 3D carousel widget into ten available content slots. Each slot allows you to select rotating and static images. The rotating image is one that rotates, while the static image is the image that appears in the infobox. For each slot, you can have a different heading and text. You can also assign links to the heading of the slots.

Interactivity of WordPress 3D Carousel

Try to “drag” the WordPress 3D carousel. Move cursor over any image in the spinner, click the left mouse button, and move it to the left or to the right side. You can also stop the spinner with a double-click.
