Compatible with Joomla 1.5 and 2.5
The module now includes a new HTML 5 layout, supporting a variety of transition effects. See more about the transition effects here.
These are some examples of our Featured Items Slideshow module. This module is a great way to enliven your Joomla! news articles, and encourage visitor click-through.
This module can display images from your Joomla! articles as a slideshow, with a caption taken from the text, and a link to the articles. It has some really handy features:-
The module supports Mighty Extensions Resources as well as the Joomla Core Content and K2 articles. For Mighty Extensions Resources it supports:-
For Joomla core content articles the module automatically detects the images embedded in the article html.
The slideshow module is compatible with Joomla versions 1.5 and 1.6/1.7/2.5.
When running on Joomla 1.5 the module attempts to unload the native version of mootools, and load mootools 1.3. This will normally work, however if your page contains other extensions that use mootools it may cause problems both for the other extensions and the slideshow.
In that case you can use the HTML 4 version of the slideshow, which is compatible with all versions of mootools. It looks very similar to the HTML 5 slideshow, it just doesn't include the fancy transition effects (see below).
The HTML 5 slideshow also requires a web browser that supports the HTML 5 canvas element, for example current versions of Opera, Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer version 9. Versions of Internet Explorer prior to version 9 do not support the canvas element. In that case the script that loads the slideshow can automatically detect this, and will load the HTML 4 slideshow instead, so viewers will still see a slideshow, the one illustrated below in fact.
If the web browser does not support the HTML 5 canvas element this is automatically detected, and the viewer sees an HTML 4 slideshow instead. You can see an example of the HTML 4 slideshow here.
