Highslide JS Examples
Though Highslide JS is very configurable, its implementation into the Joomla environment can be somewhat intimidating, especially for novice users.
Highslide JS for Joomla exposes all of the flexibility of Highslide JS through a clear and concise configuration screen and JCE editor dialogs. The intent is to allow anyone, regardless of their skill level, to take full advantage of all that Highslide JS has to offer while minimizing, as much as possible, the need to get down to hardcore HTML coding.
Highslide JS for Joomla consists of the following software components:
Highslide JS for Joomla was written for Joomla 1.5.2 native or later. To use the entire package effectively, you must have JCE 1.5.2 installed. JCE is a very popular content editor for Joomla, written by Ryan Demmer, and can be downloaded (for free) from joomlacontenteditor.net.
How It Works
The Highslide JS configuration component adds 1 table to your MySQL database during initial installation. The HsConfig table initially contains 1 entry called the Site Configuration. It is preconfigured with default settings that you may alter as you deem necessary. In addition to the Site Configuration, you may create article specific configuration entries for any article in your Joomla site. The article specific configuration entry will be used, if published, in lieu of the Site Configuration whenever that article is displayed.
The JCE HsExpander and HsHtmlExpander plugins are used to define and maintain the necessary Highslide JS links in your web content.
After downloading the individual software components from the Downloads section, log on to your administrative back-end and go to the Extensions/Install/Uninstall menu item and perform the following steps:
Thats it. You now have everything you need to get going with Highslide JS for Joomla. Have a look at the Documentation section of the site for tips and examples. If you have problems, questions or would just like to make a comment in general, feel free to visit the forums. Good luck.
