Featured Carousel Example 2 Print

*****Now compatible with Joomla 1.5 and 1.6*******

An example of the featured items carousel module, showing the click 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.

Additional features:-

  1. The entire article intro text can be displayed, with all html tags, or just an extract.
  2. The module  supports content plugins.
  3. Also as well as pre-selected categories the module can display articles from the current category or section. This is a powerful feature that now means that you can do things like display random articles, or the latest articles from the category currently being viewed.
  4. The module can cache resized images for improved efficiency
  5. There is an optional auto-scroll feature
