This module displays random images from a chosen directory. The random images can be displayed in a so-called Lightbox view (Shadowbox, Slimbox or Milkbox). Other images from the specified folder can be displayed in this view as a gallery.

Highlights of the module are the storage of thumbnails, reading from all subfolders of the specified directory, the lightbox view of the images, the image rotator slideshow and reading image information from a text file.

Features

  • Specify types of images - several types of images (e.g. jpg, png, gif) are possible.
  • Preview images can be generated and stored. They will be loaded next time faster and have a better quality.
  • All subdirectories of the specified folder can be read in - so you can display the images from other folders as well.
  • Image information from a text file
  • Individual link each image
  • The size of the thumbnails can be set in dependence of aspect ratios.
  • A caption and the image name can be displayed under the images.
  • The displayed image can be supplied with a link.
  • For the JS and gallery view are available: Shadowbox, Slimbox and Milkbox. At a JavaScript conflict you may select an alternative.
  • The remaining images in the specified folder (with subfolders if necessary) can be displayed as a gallery in the JS view. These images can also be sorted randomly.
  • Image Rotator - show a simple slideshow

Installation

Install the module in the backend with the help of the installer and configure it in Extensions - Module Manager - RIE - Random Image Extended

Publish it after the configuration on a wished module position!

How to use the information text file?

Use a text file to set the properties of the images. The file has to be named 'info.txt' and placed directly in the image folder. You can enter the name (=description) and an individual link for each image. The properties have to be separated with a pipe symbol |. The first parameter is the complete name with the extension of the corrsponding image, the second parameter is the description and the third the link. The link is optional, the name and the description have to be entered. Enter only one image each line!

Example:

image1.jpg|This is a great image|http://www.google.com
image2.png|Wow, how amazing!|http://joomla-extensions.kubik-rubik.de
image3.jpg|Last summer - really hot
