Swiper

Swiper Module is a wonderful adaptive slider that is an integration of standard Joomla Articles Newsflash module and a free jQuery Swiper plugin. Created for IOS, this plugin works perfectly on the latest Android, Windows Phone 8 and desktop PC browsers.

Let us check what kinds of slides can we add to the site slider using this module. First of all, it might be a regular animated slide with an image and a caption on it:

But it can be also a slide with the background video or a configurable slide with the parallax image background. There’s actually a vast of options to choose from. Let’s learn how to use them.

  1. First, open your site admin panel and navigate to the Extensions > Modules section.

  2. Use the Search field or the Search tools dropdown menu to find all the Swipe type modules. We will filter the Swiper type modules with the help of Filter by type option. In the dropdown list of the option select Swiper, as shown in the picture below:

  3. As you can see, this template has two Swiper slider modules, added by default. Let’s edit the Home slider. Click on a title link to open the module for editing [settings window].

  4. The first tab allows you to edit general module settings [Module tab]. Here you can select the category for your slide articles, choose whether to display the slides’ titles and images, set the titles and links, etc. You may also define the number of articles to show within this module at this section:

  5. The Swiper slider module has the regular modules’ settings, such as Menu Assignment [here you can select what pages include the slider], Module Permissions [you may select group of site users who can see the module], Advanced [feel free to define slider bootstrap size and CSS classes here]. They can be set at the respective tabs.

    Menu Assignment:
  6. Module Permissions:

    Advanced:

  7. As to the unique module’s settings, they are available at the Swiper Settings tab. Here you can add specific effects to each slide if needed. Let’s take a closer look on this section:

    1. You may select the slide to apply the effect to. E.g., with ‘1’ entered you will add the effect to the first slide.

    2. In our case slide #3 has the parallax effect applied to the background image. You may also select other options from the dropdown or specify the parallax settings in a respective section below:

    3. Slide #2 is the video slide, you may select its video file from your site media library [to upload file go to the Content > Media].

    4. NOTE

      To upload file [image/video] to be used for parallax and video background effect of a slider go to the Content > Media section. You need to store the video files in media/swiper-videos/ folder for video files and in the images/slider/parallax/ folder for images. The uploaded media files will be available to choose in Video and Select a Background Image options' dropdown lists.

    5. Below are the general slider settings. You may select if the slider starts automatically, choose the sliding speed, set slider height, use different kinds of animation and so on.

    6. As to the Navigation and controls section, each option here has the ‘Yes/No’ or ‘True/False’ trigger that allows you to configure the desirable view for your slider in a few simple clicks.

    7. You are able to select if caption should be displayed in the Caption Settings section.
    8. In Thumbnails section you may set thumbnails height, space between thumbnails and so on.
    9. Slide #1 has no specific effects added, so its image is set at the slider article itself [to change an image go to Content > Articles, choose Slider in Select Category dropdown list [Search Tools]. Press the Make a Website That Stands Out title link and in the appeared settings window click the Images&Links tab].

    10. Click the Images&Links tab:

      NOTE
