An example of the featured items carousel module, showing the default scroller layout.
This highly versatile module allows you to feature articles picked by id, by section or by category. The module displays a thumbnail plus an extract from the text with a link to the article for each item. The scroller can respond to mouse-click or mouseover events. They can be horizontal or vertical. There is a choice of colour schemes. Also the module can use GD graphics for improved thumbnail quality.
The articles can be selected either from the Joomla core content component, or the Mighty Extensions Resources component.
The module can display as many articles as you want, and you can control the number of items visible in the carousel window, as well as the display size of an individual item.
The module now includes support for K2 as the content source. It can display text taken from the K2 intro text, and images taken from the K2 image field or embedded in the text.
The module also includes integration with K2 Users, Community Builder, Mighty Extensions Touch and JomSocial. It can be used to display articles by the profiled user whenever a user profile is viewed.
