Set a specific duration

In the slide, just at the right of the image you can see the hourglass icon. You can set a duration in [ms] here, this will force the slide to be show during this time value. If you don't set any value here, then the module option Effects >> Display time will be used. By default this value is set to 7000 (= 7 seconds).

 

Set a link

You can give a link for each slide, this can be any url. You can

  • Write an external or custom url : just write what you want in the field
  • Use a menu item from your website : click on the edit icon that will open a popup with the menus. You can navigate and select any existing menu item to put in as link on the slide. See what looks like the menu selection :

On each link you can also define the target option :

  • Default : This will use the general setting that is defined in the module option Options >> Link >> Link target
  • Open in the same window : this will force this slide to open in the same window
  • Open in a new window : this will force this slide to open in the same window
  • Open in a Lighbox : this will force this slide to open in a Lightbox (see how to Open a video in the Ligtbox for more example of this feature)

 

Set a video

Even if you want to show a video, you will need to set up an image for the slide. Without image your slide will not work.

Tip : take a screenshot of the video player and use this image in the slide

You can choose if you want to load

  • a local video on your server : use the edit icon to select your video with the Media Manager CK that will show you only the videos that are in your website :

ck media manager video

  • a hosted video, like Youtube : you must write the url to the video. Take care that you must give the url to the player of the video, not the presentation page.
    Example with a Youtbe video :
    - the default video url is : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gx6cFtEC_yc- the player video url (that you must use) is : https://www.youtube.com/embed/Gx6cFtEC_yc
    You can get this type of url by clicking the share button of the video and select "integrated into an iframe"

 Set dates

On each slide you can give a start date and an end date. This will be used to check if the slide must be shown in the slideshow. This is a very useful option if you want to create special slides for special events like Christmas, Black Friday or anything else.

 

Enable / Disable the slide

You can click on the ON/OFF button on each slide to deactivate it. It will not be loaded into the slideshow, but it will remains in the list so that you can still activate it when you need it again. A disabled slide will look like this :
