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:
If you have modified the style sheet besps.css, save it before update, it gets overwritten.

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

Images in Subdirectories
35 Tuesday, 21 June 2011 17:24
Rebecca

I would like to be able to display a slideshow of images when the images are stored in subdirectories within the directory. At this point it can only find the images in the exactly specified directory. If the only images in the directory are in subdirectories, it gives an error message.
I tried writing {*besps}reb/*{/besps*} to use the * as a wildcard, but it didn't work (error was no directory found).
I am using Joomla 1.5.21 and the version of the slideshow for 1.5.
If this is not possible with the current coding, please consider expanding to add this functionality in the future. Perhaps an option in the plugin page allowing the user to check whether or not to include subdirectories?
If you need more information, you can e-mail me directly at info AT rrww DOT dk

Thank you for your great work with your plug-ins.

Hi Rebecca!

No, up till now the plugin does not support sub-folders.
I will re-consider adding this option but up till now the result always has been not to add it according to the problems a lot of users have with just 1 folder. :)

Best regards
Andreas

Salut andreas, merci merci pour ton aide, c'était bien un problême d'écriture du dossier PhotosAcceuil, dorénavent j'utilise que des minuscules sans accents ...

Félicitation pour ce merveilleux plugin Andréas

Hi jmd67!

As said, don't care about this part of the path. It is fine. The problem here is the name of the folder. File systems are case sensitive. As the folder on your server is not "photosaccueil" but "PhotosAccueil" you should use this in the code for the slideshow too:

{*besps}PhotosAccueil{/besps*} ... without the asterisks

Best regards
Andreas

PS.: Make your life easier and use short, lowercase names without special signs for files and folders!

Hi jmd67!

Please check the directory permissions of the folder /images/stories/photosaccueil. It should be 755 for the folder.

Ich wollte das plugin auf mod_custom (=Eigene Inhalte (Leeres Modul)) einsetzen, das funzt leider nicht, wahrscheinlich scant das Modul nicht nach den {plugins}.

Darum die Bitte, bitte doch dieses wunderbare plugin auch als module, statt des langweiiligen 'Zufallsbild'.

thx, robert

Thank you.

Hi Syen!

I have tried to explain installation and usage of the plugin at the pages "Howto Plugin" and "Howto Plugin Code" (find the links in the menu at the left). Maybe you want to have a look at them.
About the code: It is inserted in the article at the position you want the slideshow to appear.

It seems as the individual link tags do not work
31 Wednesday, 08 June 2011 00:09
Ter

I would like to link the slides to different pages or at least have a link on one slide to a page.

When i use the tag for links - it does not work - it works however if i put in a 0 - but then it works globally on all the slides...how do i make it work on one slide only ?

Hi Ter!

Please post the code you are using in the article (the complete code - initial call, specific captions) plus a link to the page. I will have a look at it.

To leave the gallery hidden
30 Tuesday, 07 June 2011 16:22
CMB

Hi,

?I'm using Simple Picture SlideShow Plugin, including it inside another plugin Details toggle but the gallery is always displayed.
Is there any way to leave this liyer hidden at the beginning?

{dt_head}
Text
{dt_details}
{*besps}slideshow{/besps*}
{*besps_c}0||Comment|{/besps_c*}
{dt_end}

Thanks

@CMB
Tuesday, 07 June 2011 21:44
A. Berger

Hi CMB!

I am not really familiar with Details toggle, but as far as I have seen the question is if this plugin is able to hide/move the slideshow. The slideshow itself does not receive any commands from the tab-plugin nor is it triggered by the changes of the respective tab. This means, the required changes have to be done on the other side of the table and - although I don't like to send people to the next "desk" - this time I would suggest to ask for a possible solution at the support forum at seipernove.it.

Best regards
Andreas

Changing Settings and Descriptions
29 Sunday, 05 June 2011 22:34
Shaun Reid

Hi Guys Firstly thank you for all the hard work I love using your galleries! I am having 2 problems

1 when I try load descriptions I get the gallery but then see the code underneath and not the description - please see http://elizabethgordons.co.za.dedi93.jnb2.host-h.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=23&Itemid=7at the bottom is the gallery - I am changing from the vsig to this one

2. I want the gallery thumbnails to flow and dont want the side arrows I cant seem to find any option to do this? I want all the thumbnails to be visible any way to do this?

@Shaun Reid

A. Berger

Hi Shaun!

Looks as if you already got the gallery to work the way you want it.

For everybody else: The plugin Shaun is talking about is the "Very Simple Image Gallery" and if you wonder how to get rid of sets - just empty the parameter "Use sets of size".

Best regards
Andreas

one more thing...
28 Saturday, 04 June 2011 13:09
Klaus

... if a directory contains just one picture, the script still applies the transition, looks a bit funky then fading the same one against the background over and over.

You got it beter
Thursday, 09 June 2011 21:25
shaun reid

To be honest I have tried all the other extentions and they dont work as nicely as yours. They dont use sentax as well as you do and I think by adding a lightbox option you will only seporate yourself from the other content galleries! Please let me know if you decide to add this feature!!

@Shaun Reid
Wednesday, 08 June 2011 20:32
A. Berger

Hi Shaun!

I take the liberty not to use modal windows in my plugins but about 95% of the extensions listed in the category "Photos & Images" at extensions.joomla.org come with some kind of lightbox. I am pretty sure there is one that fits your needs.

Best regards
Andreas

is there any way to make the images open as a lightbox as aposed to the top display as some of my galleries are to large - this would be a great feature? Then have the description in the opening image? Please let me know?

Hi Klaus!

If somebody really wants to show a "slideshow" with 1 image - why should I hold him/her off from doing so?

Plugin replacement string
27 Saturday, 04 June 2011 12:41
Klaus

Thanks for this nice little unobstrusive plugin. I used it as a replacement for another plugin, which was rather bloated and produced conflicts with another extension, due to the usual jQuery/Mootols overlaps.
Anyway, the other plugin was triggered by {gallery} and quite some articles already contained references, so I went about changing the string in your plugin, was not too difficult to do.
I would suggest a variable setting in the backend, for the replacement string. Cheers.

@Klaus
Monday, 06 June 2011 20:07
A. Berger

Hi Klaus!

Yes, adding the option to choose the code for the gallery from the backend would make it comfortable to switch from an other extensions and I already thought about implementing this option. The reason why I decided against it was that I am sure that for 1 person that benefits from this feature there would be 10 that have a hard time finding out why the plugin does not work at all - or does not work everywhere. This setting would have a huge potential of driving people crazy. :)

Best regards
Andreas

Buttons
26 Tuesday, 31 May 2011 14:23

Does anyone know how to make the play and stop buttons swap out depending on whether or not the it is playing or stopped. (ie. if the slideshow is stopped, then the play button in visible and vise-versa.) Thanks!

Hi Steve!

The plugin does not provide this gimmick and to be honest, it's not on my roadmap.
