Hi,
What is currently the easiest way to create a sideshow out of an Image Gallery album?

Thanks,

First you need to pick which slideshow tool you want to use. There are several open source javascript-based tools out there. Then you create a new UI class. You can follow the examples in the gallery_ui folder. I plan on writing a tutorial sometime, but I just haven't had a chance to do it. If you're good with PHP you should be fine.

Also, the SlideshowPro module that is build on ImageGallery is good if you use SlideshowPro.

Hi,
Creating a slide show script from the examples in the gallery_ui folder is beyond me.

Where do I download the Slideshowpro module that goes with the image gallery module?
Is it this one: http://www.silverstripe.org/slideshow-pro-module/

I look forward to your tutorial!

Thanks,
Sam

No, don't use that one. The extension of the ImageGallery is only available through SVN. I haven't submitted it to SS.. not sure why.

The SVN checkout is:

svn co http://carlinowebdesign.svn.beanstalkapp.com/modules/trunk/slideshow_pro

You should probably be familiar with Slideshow Pro, too http://www.slideshowpro.net

The other thing is that it might be easier for you to just use an ImageDOM and create a template based on any slideshow you want to use. That's probably the easiest thing to do.

So, this doesn't look complete (based on the module download), so I am assuming that you replace these files with the ones from the module download?

I'm not sure what you mean. You should just be able to checkout the slideshow_pro module from SVN and upload it to your server. It does require that image_gallery is installed as well.

When I went to the site(link provided), I just saw a site with the files. I am new at this (actually getting back into it), so maybe I don't have the correct software installed to download SVN correctly. I do have image_gallery installed.

Never mind. I am not the sharpest tool in the shed.
