badge mediumThe module includes an HTML 5 layout, supporting a variety of transition effects. See more about the transition effects here.

Please note that this is a Javacript slideshow, not Flash.

This module can display images from your Joomla! articles, with a caption taken from the text, and a link to the articles, as a javascript slideshow. It can be used to quickly create an easily editable slideshow, simply by uploading images into a Joomla article, then using this article as the source for the slideshow. Alternatively the slideshow can be used to display a portfolio or news images, with the displayed images being linked to their source articles.


It has some really handy features:-

  • The module is smart, it can find articles with images automatically. You can just select a category, and it will find the articles and the images in them, without you needing to add anything to the articles themselves;
  • articles without images will not be displayed;
  • You can choose the number of articles, plus from a variety of orderings, including title order, most recently modified or created, number of hits, or random;
  • Alternatively, you can select specific articles only to display;
  • The size of the slide image and thumbnails is fully customizable through the module parameters, so the module can work as a large central display, or a small feature;
  • There is a large range of customizable features, including whether or not to display the thumbnails, the orientation of the thumbnails (horizontal or vertical), the type of scroller used (click or mouseover), plus whether to auto-start the show on page loading;
  • The module is search engine friendly, because the article caption content and the links are rendered on the page as ordinary html, the slideshow being constructed from this content, hence Google will have no problem crawling the article links.
  • You can choose the amount of text to display in the caption;
  • You can have as many instances of the module on the page as you want, with separate parameters for each.


The module supports the Joomla Core Content and K2 articles. It is compatible with mootools, and does not require any additional javascript libraries, just the mootools library that ships with Joomla.


The module includes image handling functions. The images can be dynamically resized, with image caching and image compression supported for improved performance.
