You can choose the data source from several components :
- Joomla Content articles [category choice],
- K2 articles [category choice and with/without 'featured' flag],
- remote RSS feeds,
- Twitter updates loaded dynamically [timeline or keywords].
This is a very powerful slider module for the following reasons: with only one module you can manage the data of different components in different ways:
- choice of data source (Joomla articles, K2 articles, banners, rss feed, twitter (per timeline or per keywords).
- choice of display elements: title / date/ text length / image / category / featured or not.
- choice of animation: rotating effect (horizontal/vertical sliding), rotation speed, transition effects (fading/elastic/etc.).
- speed: using AJAX it is very fast.
