ShackSlides is not just a slideshow module, but a way to feature your images in style. The most powerful feature of ShackSlides is the ability to utilize content items as the source for your slideshow.

A Joomla Slideshow Module

Since it is built using an independent javascript slideshow script, it doesn't matter if you are using jQuery, Mootools, any other Javascript framework or no framework at all. This reduces the number of script conflicts and problems you will have with combining too many different extensions.

Easy, Reliable, and Optimized for Joomlashack Templates

It works on both Joomla 1.5, 2.5 and 3.0, and support K2, FlexiContent, and Joomla content (so long as these extensions work in the Joomla version).

You can easily customize the way it appears by using one of the color themes; and, if you wish, you can override the entire way it displays using Joomla's HTML overrides method.

Unlike most free slideshow extensions, you get access to our support for 3 months after purchase. That gives you plenty of time to get the support you need should any problems arise.

New features will be added over time, so if you have a great idea for the module let us know! We'd like to build a slideshow module that you need rather than build a module that we think you want.


ShackSlides is released under the GNU GPL v3 license--read full license . Your purchase includes access to support and upgrades for 3 months.

ShackSlides Key Features:

  • Over 10 effect options!
  • Support for 4 sources: Joomla Content, K2 Items, FlexiContent Items, or a folder
  • 8 color themes
  • Can be overridden with a template override
  • Slides can be linked to content or an images directory
  • Optional descriptions pulled from content
  • Javascript neutral
  • Easy to translate

Markitup is a powerful new HTML editor for Joomla that gives you 100% control over your Joomla html code with full HTML5 tag support, multilingual support and handy utilities like the “Lorem Ipsum” generator (adds instant sample content to your articles), dummy image generator (adds sample images to your articles), form wizard, table wizard, advanced color picker tool & more. Up to 112 assignable html editor buttons in all can be dragged & dropped to your Markitup toolbar giving you complete control over your source code like never before. Most Joomla html editors are all WYSIWYG (“what you see is what you get”) and don’t give you any real control over your source code. And worse, those WYSIWYG editors can add unnecessary code to your output, disorganize your existing code, and even can overwrite your class attributes & styles. So much for all that hard work you put in making your site look just ‘right.’ With just a little html knowledge, writing html code is fun and easy with Markitup.

MarkItUp Editor for Joomla is a different kind of editor. Most try to emphasize the WYSIWYG interface (the visual representation of the page) over the code. MarkItUp doesn't try to do that. Instead it tries to make it easier to control your HTML code without fear of extra formatting. The free version is a simple editor that doesn't have any extra features to help assist you in content and code management. Included in the free version: *MarkItUp Editor integration with Joomla *Keyboard Shortcuts *15 HTML Buttons for easy addition to your content, including: - Anchor Link tag - Delete tag - Emphasis tag - h1 - h6 tags - Image tag - ul, li, lo tags - Paragraph tag - Strong tag

The Visionary Joomla component by Joomlashack is a new way to manage and display image collections as slideshows on your Joomla powered site. A Joomla Image Manager of a Higher Order Visionary allows the convenience of mass uploading of images to be assigned to a 'collection', and that collection can be used as the source for a full page slideshow, or as the source for the bestselling Shackslides module (included with Visionary) to present a slideshow in any module position. Plus each image in a collection can also be edited to include a title and description, allowing easy editing of the slide using the WYSIWYG editor of choice.
