ShackSlides Module

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.

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. This reduces the number of script conflicts and problems you will have with combining too many different extensions.

It works on both Joomla 1.5 and 2.5, and support K2, FlexiContent, and Joomla content.

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 that it display 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.
