showplus Image Slideshow

Description

showplus is an eye-catching slideshow for a front-page to display a set of images with user-defined transition between them. It is easy to get started with but offers a number of customization options for more advanced users.

showplus is powered by a slideshow script built entirely with the MooTools JavaScript framework that ships with Joomla, and uses no Flash technology. Having a showplus slideshow on a page incurs a footprint of less than 30 Kb with only a single CSS file and a JavaScript file included in the page header.

The majority of the server-side code base for showplus has been derived from the successful image gallery plug-in sigplus, whereas the majority of client-side browser code has been taken from the project Slideshow2.

Features

  • choose from six customizable transition types: fade, zoom, pan, Ken Burns effect, push, wipe
  • attach captions to images with multilingual support and a default caption
  • hyperlink each image to an arbitrary location
  • order images according to filename or last modified time, shuffle images each time the page is shown, or specify custom order
  • display horizontal or vertical navigation bar with small thumbnail images that allow for fast navigation
