Change the look of your Slideshow

If you click on tab "Module Preferences", you can adjust Basic settings and Slideshow options and Text display options for each slideshow.

Basic settings

  • width= Width in pixels
  • height= Height in pixels
  • window mode= window|opaque|transparent|direct|gpu Defines the way the slide show is rendered in your browser.. (Attention, opaque and transparent are not cross-browser compatible)
    using WMode Opaque will cause the flash to appear on the correct Z-index, so that it does not hide menus or other objects, whereas WMode Transparent is always on the top layer. For me the best experience is leave it on "Window"
  • picture scaling= noscale|showall|exactfit|noborder Change the scale mode of images.
        NoScale: display images 1:1
        ShowAll: scale images proportionally to fit the slide show area
        ExactFit: stretch images to exactly fit the slide show area
        NoBorder: scale images proportionally to fill the slide show area
