Usage Instructions

Open Joomla image slider parameters in Extensions > Module Manager > Hot Image Slider. You'll see that some default parameters are already there. However, you should change some of them to accommodate module for usage on your site.

  • LOAD JQUERY: Select whether to load jQuery library or not. If your template already loads it, you may disable this to avoid possible javascript errors.
  • SLIDER WIDTH: Numerical value for width of the image slider module in pixels (in example 500).
  • SLIDER HEIGHT: Numerical value for height of the image slider module in pixels (in example 200).
  • ANIMATION TYPE: Slide or Fade
  • BORDER WIDTH: Thickness of border around images. Enter numerical value in pixels (in example 20).
  • BACKGROUND COLOR: Background color in hexadecimal format (in example db7d3c). You may use Color Blender to get values if you don't have software, such as Photoshop.
  • DESCRIPTION TEXT COLOR: Color of image description text in hexadecimal format.
  • FOLDER WHERE IMAGES ARE STORED: Type folder (relative to Joomla root) where your images are stored. Don't include leading or trailing slash (in example you may enter images/stories).
  • IMAGE NAME: Image name with extension (in example articles.jpg).
  • IMAGE TITLE: Title of the image. It will be displayed if enabled.
  • IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Description of the image. It will be displayed if enabled.
  • LINK: Link for this image, starting with http://. You can use internal or external links (internal link example http://www.yoursite.com/index.php, or external link http://www.google.com). If you don't type link, image would be displayed without link.
