Full-screen Slideshow

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

You may want to set your Shack Slides Pro for your Joomla site running on the Joomlashack Unlimited template to display slides in a full-screen mode. 

This is exactly how we set the Shack Slides Pro slideshow for this Demo site:

There are two conditions for the full-screen slideshow running on the Joomlashack Unlimited template:

  1. You need to set the module to get displayed on the slider module position.
  2. You need to set the value of the Module Class Suffix parameter to the full-screen.

Here is how to do this in more detail.

  • In your Joomla control panel, go to Extensions > Modules:

  • You will be taken to the Modules (Site) administrative page. Click Select Type:

  • In the drop-down list of module types, click Shack Slides Pro:

  • You will see your module listed. Click on its title:

  • You will be taken to the Modules: Shack Slides Pro screen. Locate the Position parameter on the right and set it to slider:

  • Click on the Advanced tab:

  • Locate the Module Class Suffix field and type in there full-screen with one space in front of it:

  • In the top left corner of the screen, click Save or Save & Close.

Featured Articles

You can get the same look for articles from our homepage:

  • Go to Menus > Main menu > Add new menu item
  • Menu item type: Articles > Featured articles 
  • Layout > Leading articles: 0
  • Layout > Columns: 2
  • You can decide to not display: category, author, created date, modified date, hits, etc. through Options tab

  • Be sure the articles have intro image. This is done while editing an article through Images and links > Intro image setting.
  • The text box that contains the article title and intro text would be displayed on the left, right or fullwidth depending the Image float setting. This is done while editing an article through Images and links > Image float setting.
  • In Unlimited template demo we use images with size 960x638.

My Template Doesn't Look Like the Demo - Template Setup

Once installed, your template will most likely require some setup, the depth of which is determined by how many customization options your template offers (different module formatting for example).

For a look at the reasons why your template does not look like the demo straight after install, please see Why doesn't my template look like the demo?
