We are proud to present a new video tutorial on Camera Slideshow, a popular jQuery plugin, often used by our template developers for the sliders.
Sometimes you might want to experiment with the slider animation. In this tutorial we’ll take a quick glance at some of the options and features of the Camera slideshow script such as autostart, speed and transition effects.
So, open camera.js file inside "site/js" folder with a text/code editor, such as Notepad++, and let’s get started!
NOTE: some options that you see in camera.js file may not be active in your template. It depends on a particular page layout, applied CSS rules, scripts, etc.
autoAdvance option defines whether the slider starts playing automatically.
To enable the automatic start, use:
autoAdvance = true;
To disable the automatic start, use:
autoAdvance = false;
There are 2 options for slider speed: time and transPeriod.
time defines the period of time between slide transitions. In other words, that’s the amount of time for displaying each slide in miliseconds.
transPeriod – the length of the transition effect in milliseconds.
time: 7000, transPeriod: 2000,
The above code will make slides display for 7 seconds, and transition between slides will last 2 seconds.
Use fx option to change, add or remove transition effects.
To combine effects, separate their names with commas.
fx: 'simpleFade, mosaic',
This will randomly apply simpleFade or mosaic effect to slider transitions.
Number of rows/columns
Some effects, such as mosaic, use 2 options for number of rows and columns.
cols: 6, rows: 4,
