Written by Andreas Berger   
Sunday, 02 November 2008 18:22

The bretteleben.de "Simple Picture Slideshow" Plugin for Joomla!2.5 and Joomla!3.1 is a - as the name says - simple plugin to display a slideshow in content items. The images get faded out, this effect works with current major browsers. You decide if the slideshow starts automatically on pageload or is started by clicking a link/button in the content item.

Features:

- supports .jpg, .png und .gif
- can be aligned in your content item left, right, centered, float left or float right
- as many slideshows per content item as you want
- every slideshow can be configured individually (Parameter Overrides)
- optional show title and/or text with every single picture (Captions)
- optional show default title/text for the whole slideshow
- optional link every single image to a different target (Links)
- optional use a default link for the whole slideshow
- option to start on pageload or click
- optional control elements (start, stop, back next, counter)
- activate/deactivate and align (left/right) every single control element
- choose between text-links and buttons as controls

New in Version 1.5.8:

- language files
- available for Joomla!3.1

Installation and Usage

A step by step tutorial on installation and usage can be found at Howto Plugin .
The possibilities the code inside the article offers can be found at Howto Plugin Code .

Notice before update:

Limitations/Todo

The feature to load images after pageload works in a fire&forget-mode, will say, when showing the picture, the script does not check, if the dummy has already been replaced with the real picture. This will be one point to work with for future releases.

Compatibility

The plugin is tested successful with Joomla 2.5 and 3.1. Anyway, using it aside with one or another existing plugin/modul/component may bring to light problems i haven't foreseen. I suggest a test run before using it on a live site and stand by for your questions and suggestions.

License

The plugin is licensed under the GNU Public License (www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html).

update Version Joomla!2.5 and 3.1: 1.5.8

- available for Joomla!3.x
- language files

Hi Lisbeth!

Please check the section B.) Parameter Overrides at the page "Howto Plugin Code" (link in the menu at the left), it explains how to override the values set in the backend by using "parameter=value"-pairs directly in the code in your article.

Best regards
Andreas

Hi.

Great programme - thank you for that!!
I see it's possible to have more slideshows on the same page, but what if I would like to have the one slideshow with small pictures and the other with bigger ones?

Hi Fernando!

sample for 1 slideshow:
{*besps}folderA{/besps*} ... without the asterisks

sample for 2 slideshows - same folder:
{*besps}folderA{/besps*}
{*besps}folderA{/besps*} ... without the asterisks

sample for 2 slideshows - different folders:
{*besps}folderA{/besps*}
{*besps}folderB{/besps*} ... without the asterisks 

sample for 3 slideshows - different folders:
{*besps}folderA{/besps*}
{*besps}folderB{/besps*}
{*besps}folderC{/besps*} ... without the asterisks

... and so on

Best regards
Andreas

Hallo,

vielen Dank für dieses tolle Plugin.
Ein kleiner Hinweis: Leider funktioniert das Plugin unter Joomla 2.5 nicht bei Domains mit Umlauten.

Hallo Wortspiel!

Danke für den Hinweis!

An Alle:
Ich habe zur Zeit keine Umlautdomain registriert, also wenn jemand eine solche Seite mit Joomla! aufbaut und mir während der Testphase temporär Zugang gewähren könnte - vielleicht lässt sich "funktioniert nicht" ja zumindest eingrenzen. :)

How I can do to change the name of the picture when mouse over the images? I do not mean the title or description, I refer to the file name itself

Thanks!

Hallo Andreas,

noch mal vielen Dank für den tollen Support.

Wie wir festgestellt haben,  liegt es nicht an den Umlauten, sondern an einem anderem Plugin: mavik Thumbnails

Hi Dani!

To prevent the image file name from being used as alt/title add an empty default caption (see Howto Plugin Code for more information about captions):

{*besps}yourfolder{/besps*} ... the slideshow (without the asterisks)
{*besps_c}0|||{/besps_c*} ... default empty caption for 1th slideshow in article (without the asterisks)

Best regards
Andreas

Problems with new version of plugin
71 Thursday, 05 April 2012 14:22

Hi Andreas,

I am using your simple picture slide show plugin since 2 years on our website as slow motion video for pictures. See here:
www.ruegen-urlaub.com/de/webcam-in-apartmentanlage-in-lobbe-auf-ruegen.html
It's brilliant for this purpose as it is able to sort picture from old to new.
I am currently migrating to Joomla 2.5 and also updated your plugin to the latest version (on my test machine). I have two issues here:

1.) The pictures are processed by the server on every page load and not once in the beginning anymore. This takes the page to load for 5-10s and increases server load dramatically
2.) I cannot use button label "" works for the next button.("<<" does not work for any of the button labels)

Thanks for any help!
Christoph

Hi Christoph!

1.) If you mean the parameter "preload", it was broken in version 1.5.5 for J!2.5. I just fixed this and uploaded version 1.5.6 for J!2.5. Please update the plugin.
If - on the other hand - you really mean "processed by the server", the "Simple Picture Slideshow" uses the original uploaded image files, this means the server never processes any image file.

2.) You are right, I will fix this but meanwhile you can use the entitiy "&# 38;# 60;" (without the blanks and quotationsmarks) for the left angle. Just be aware, that saving it twice will purge the value again.

Best regards
Andreas
