You can either use it as I do, simply using images in a folder to be the slideshow and not having them linked to anything - purely for display purposes. You can also set up image categories and have link and descriptions etc. for each image.
Whatever suits you this suits me. Thanks guys.
You can make a single show run from the Module alone, but I worried about what else might be wrong, and our site is too important to risk it. All the other sliders we loaded installed and worked as advertised. It was just a matter of choosing which one had the best attributes.
They don't respond to tickets on the weekend, so we had to move on. Had it installed correctly we may have stayed with this one over a paid version we finally settled on.
Hello, sorry to hear you were unable to run DJ-ImageSlider. This is not a known problem as you can see. Probably this is related to your setup as you mentioned. Please make sure you're using most recent version of Joomla and let us know.
For instance, we wanted to show the description under the image rather than on it. It only took a few minuted to work out how to do this.
The fact that the Slider is free of course helps, but also it allows us to evaluate the commercial extensions of this supplier with a considerable degree of confidence.
Enabling it needed a quite read of the very clear instructions and once read, it was a doddle to get the sliding thumbnails to appear where I wanted them.
It took me longer to work out how to add a description to the slideshow within my article than it did to install! (Edit the article, not the module).
The one thing I would have liked to find was that it was possible to add the description to the enlarged image, but other than that, this is a perfect Joomla 2.5 extension, thank you!
Easy . . . CHECK
Feature rich . . . CHECK
Fill a folder full of images in dimension that work best for your site then set this module to the same dimension and point it to the folder of images. Then it is just a matter of assigning position and pages. This slider is smooth and easy to use. I could not ask for more. THANKS!
