    While that may be a custom site, I've seen a few wordpress themes almost EXACTLY like that on themeforest. Go there and search for "portfolio" or "full size portfolio" -- I used to have one like that bookmarked, but that was on my old laptop. Do some searching around on there and see if you can find it, if not I'll try and hunt it down later when I have some time. But the one i found did images full size like that, and also videos full screen in the slider... pretty sleek stuff.

    I found a couple themes I own that is similar, but I'm trying to find basically exact to the one referenced. If not, I might have to make it from scratch.... Keep me posted.

    Just use Httrack, copy the website and look at the custom.js file. I'm sure the code is there

    I scraped it, and basically there must be a missing file or something , because the slider doesn't exactly work. So I guess no luck there, trying to find a slider exactly like that. There's ones close to it, like this one: but I want to have numbers to jump to like the other one

    If you used HTTrack as suggested with some simple changes you can get the slider to work. If you take a look at the source code you will see this:
    splash_images([{filename: "photos/splash/bouquet-1920.jpg", - HTTrack does not copy these pictures to the proper location for whatever reason.
    Individually download them to photos/splash and it will work.

    Hope this helps.

    You can do that easily by getting the source code of that site and study that code you must get some idea from that.
