jQuery Based Featured Content Slider for opencart PDF Print E-mail

Hello everyone. This is my first Contribution, and it's a small one. I have been playing with OpenCart for a few months now and have finally decided to build and launch a full website based on OpenCart. During my venture building the website so far, I wanted to integrate a Featured Content Slider like you see on my websites such as Crutchfield.Com and others. Being that OpenCart uses jQuery, there are a lot of options for this. I wanted a pretty basic one that would allow for as many images and links as needed and would load everything automatically. The actual script I used and tutorial can be found here: http://webdeveloperplus.com/jquery/feat ... jquery-ui/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;. For the purpose of OpenCart though, I am writing this contribution to help others integrate it.

First think of which module you new module is most similar too. In this example, we will make a clone of the "Cash on Delivery" payment module and name it "Cash on Pickup".
