Products.slideshowfolder 4.1 Beta 1

Slideshow Folder provides a simple, elegant animated slideshow for Plone
Products.slideshowfolder is a Plone product that provides a simple, elegant animated slideshow for Plone.

Slideshow Folder integrates the Slideshow 2 javascript class into Plone. Slideshow 2 a powerful, feature-rich, easy-to-customize slideshow library -- big thanks to Aeron Glemann all of the hard work he's poured into it!

Slideshow Folder offers the following features:

- Animated slideshows with configurable transitions
- Navigation thumbnails
- Image captions
- Intelligent preloading of images to save bandwidth
- A play/pause/forward/reverse slideshow controller
- Looping and random-order slideshows
- Optional support for "lightbox" style image pop-ups
- Look and feel completely customizable via CSS

Design Rationale

Slideshow Folder uses Zope 3 development techniques to enable normal Plone Folders, Collections and Images with configurable slideshow views.

We wanted to develop a slideshow product for Plone that would avoid creating custom content types for the images and slideshow folders in order to allow easy installation, re-use of existing images in the site and to avoid "stranding" content in future upgrades or when you remove the product.
