Cu3er Slideshow

The Cu3er block allows you to select images individually from the File Manager or a File Set to produce a visually impacting Flash-based slideshow. Animation settings can be controlled on a granular image-by-image basis for maximum flexibility.

Key Features:

  • Add individual images to the slideshow (from the File Manager) with granular control over animations.
  • Or simply select a File Set and default transition options for a quick animation.
  • Selection of a "fallback" banner image (from the File Manager) when the user does not have Flash installed - much better than a "download Flash now" button.
  • Hide navigation buttons if desired.
  • Supports multiple Cu3er blocks on the same page.
  • Advanced users can tweak the XML configuration file to fine-tune the functionality and appearance.

Tips:

  • Ensure all images in the slideshow are the same dimensions.
  • If you want a simple transition effect, just set the number of "slices" to "1".

How it works:

The block generates XML data as the block is created/edited (and saved into the db). This XML data stores configuration info about the Cu3er animation.The config XML data is based on several XML template files called "configTemplate.xml", "buttonTemplate.xml" and "descriptionTemplate.xml", so if you know Cu3er well and want to fine-tune it, simply edit this file as required.
