Documentation | Demo | Download

 

This extension is not maintained anymore!
Please have a look at the new version Klixo Slideshow Plus! with K2 support and full responsive layout.

 

This module lets you create beautiful slideshows from Joomla articles.

  • You can select one or several categories of articles to use in the slideshow.
  • It has many settings to let you customize your slideshow exactly the way you need.
  • You can create several slideshows modules playing on the same web page with different settings and content for each one.
  • The Klixo Articles slideshow module uses Jquery to provide 24 different transitions effects to choose from.
  • The admin interface is detailed and complete. Color settings can be adjusted using a real colorpicker, like in a Photoshop (no more color guessing by typing hexacodes). You can of course type the hexacode in the colorfields if you know which color you need to use!

 

Differences between the Articles Slider and Articles Slideshow modules

 

As you may have noticed, we offer two modules for download that may look quite similar. Some might get confused and ask themselves,
"Is there really a difference between the Articles slider and the Articles slideshow modules?"

Although both modules share the same architecture, there are some important differences.

Klixo articles slider module, gets the Joomla articles from the selected categories and builds a series of slides WITHOUT reformatting the content. Which can be exactly what you need, if you want to display the articles the way they have been created, or create a text tickerbox to display top stories on your site for instance.

Klixo articles slideshow module also pulls the content from Joomla articles, additionally it offers more possibilities to reformat the content of the articles to create the slideshow.


The work behind the scene

The slideshow module, extracts the first image found in the Joomla article, the title of the article and the introduction text to create each slide.
This makes things easier when preparing the content, since you don't have to worry about how to position the images with css or resize each image separately in the articles you want to use for the slides. This is handled by the slideshow module.

The parameters available in the slideshow administration interface offer several options to finetune how the module will play the slides.

 

Image settings

  • Image position (left or right on the slide)
  • Image adjustement (crop or resize)

The image resizing is a very handy feature. Thanks to this, you don't have to resize in advance each photo or picture for your slideshow. The module will do all the work for you, and adjust automatically all the images according to the parameters selected.

  • Image background (solid color, color gradient, transparent)

The background style lets you change the color and the style of the background to display behind each picture. If you use pictures with PNG transparency, you can for instance add a color gradient background to them.

 

Content settings

 Most settings are self explanatory and should be easy to understand. The contextual help available for each field, provides further explanation if needed.
You can for instance decide to strip all the text content and display only the images in your slides.
You can also decide to limit the lenght of the text displayed and display a "Read More" link that will open the corresponding Joomla article.

Best is to experiment and choose the settings that best suit your needs.

 

Slideshow and navigation settings
