Need advice/pointer on Rotating banner at theme's header

Can anyone point me the way to enable a rotating banner (images on the banner change every N seconds or on mouseclick etc.) for my Moodle 2.5 theme's header?

Is there already an existing Moodle 2.x theme that will allow me to do this?

Dear Frankie,

The forthcoming Essential theme has an image slider on the frontpage -> https://github.com/moodleman/moodle-theme_essential

Cheers,

Gareth

And what a find it is! A nice modern theme. So nice of Julian to share the theme which is based on the theme used here: http://2013.imoot.org/.

Does anyone know how to make the image inside the banner appear larger? Poking around the CSS codes and not yet found out where exactly...also, upon loading, the banner's slide is blank as it is counting down to display the second slide. It didn't start by displaying the first slide. How do I initialise the banner so that the first slide is shown, stays put for N seconds an then only transits to the next slide?

I've already setup the rotating banner and its 4 four slides, customised the colors to suit the corporate colours of my company - it's that easy to set up and makes customising a breeze!

Julian says not to use it for a production site. I say "it's too good NOT to use for a production site". So I'm throwing caution to the wind, and assuming the role of a brave (fool-hardy) early adoptor. 

Still, thanks a bunch, Julian and Gareth!
