One of our goals at Joomlashack is to make things simple for you.
With that in mind, we merged Joomlashack's Visionary component into ShackSlides. Visionary was an extension that was sold separately that integrated with Shackslides and allowed you to easily upload images. The goal is help make it simpler for you to work with slideshows.
With the same low price, Shackslides now includes the features that made Visionary so popular.
If you install or update ShackSlides to its latest version 3.1.4, you will notice a significant change in your Joomla control panel.
How Previous Versions Worked
Previous versions of Visionary installed the following extensions:
- A component called "Visionary"
- A module called "JSVisionary"
And previous version of Shackslides installed these extensions:
- A module called "JSShackSlides"
- A plugin called "JS Visionary Plugin"
In your Components menu you saw the "Visionary" component:
How New Versions of Shackslides Work
Starting from version 3.1.4, ShackSlides Pro will install for you only two extensions:
- ShackSlides Pro component
- ShackSlides Pro module
You no longer need to download or install Visionary.
Now instead of the "Visionary" in your Components menu, you will see "ShackSlides":
We would like to thank all the Visionary and ShackSlides customers for valuable recommendations that led us to this merger. If you have further ideas, feature requests or general feedback, please leave us your comments below.
