    You have defined your own dias at your page and demo page!

    I was thinking of using the user def html block instead of the module!

    Can I get a copy of your code?

    Is “Diasshow” Danish (or Google’ish) for Slideshow? πŸ™‚

    If you look at the wysiwyg toolbar in the HTML block edit window you will find an “insert slideshow” icon.

    The only extra thing that does not do is that you will need to call jQuery inside the block, so add this code at the start of the block content:

    Nice – that part is new? Can not remember I have seen it! But how to add images from data/media ? (can only see upload)

    Not easily possible using that feature because the kiwitrees media folders are (for good reasons) fully protected. That is why I added the “uploads” folder – to allow for the use of images that do not require protection / privacy.

    However what you could do is use the feature to set up the slide show with images from uploads, then edit the raw text and replace the image source code with mediaviewer links (as described in https://kiwitrees.net/modifying-kiwitrees/make-story-module-images-open-in-colorbox/ )

    But you should think very carefully before doing that. The Home page is public – so there is no privacy checking for images displayed there using a slideshow. I can’t recommend that.

    I should also add that all of the above relates to the slideshow displayed on the kiwitrees demo site (http://demo.kiwitrees.net/ ) The one on my personal site (http://www.our-families.info/ ) is a completely different solution. I wanted to display HTML content within the slides, including kiwitrees blocks. That is much more complex. It uses a jQuery slideshow from here: http://www.slidesjs.com/ You can use that if you want, but you’ll need to do your own coding. That site has good installation instructions and helpful support. I added the one in CKEditor to make life simpler for you, so I don’t have to teach coding to users πŸ™‚

    I just used the jQuery code (took a while and I added some images for the purpose)

    simpl_slideshow had the background vs the standard slideshow. And since not all my images having same size it does not look nice!

    Atm it is designed like this for now. Not satisfied but until I figure out something else…..

    Thank you Nigel!

    P.S.
    Oh not teaching coding – that could actually be a nice thing πŸ˜› j/k

    IMHO I find CKEditor does not “make life simpler” I look for code examples to edit. I’ve given up trying to figure out its WYSIWYG way of inserting a slide show or anything, until I find an online tutorial on the thing.

    Bootsbootes:

    Switch to code at the source button and paste this:
    <p><script src=”js/jquery.min.js”></script><script src=”js/jquery-ui.js”></script></p>
    Switch back to normal and click at the slideshow icon
    Add images by uploading
    Decide which controls you want to use (thumbs, Start/Stop ect)
    Hit save
    Hit OK

    It took me a while to be satisfied (well not completely) but this is one step ahead

    Thank you jacoline that made all the difference πŸ™‚
    Before adding that script I could not get any image into the slide show.

    You are welcome Paul πŸ™‚

    I stole it from Nigel by using Firefox code editor! You can use the browser to see the html coding and in this way getting an idea how to solve/make a code!
