Say Hello to Shack Slides: the Joomlashack Slideshow Extension

Joomla and Joomlashack have been around for over 14 years now.

So many things have changed in that time. But, many of the very best Joomla extensions are still going strong! Watchful did a survey of the most popular Joomla extensions and the winners all launched in 2006 and 2007.

We have one extension that's been at Joomlashack since those days: Shack Slides.

Shack Slides gives you the freedom to create beautiful Joomla slideshows with your images. You'll find it in almost all Joomlashack's templates.

This is Shack Slides in the Onyx template:


This is Shack Slides in the Breezy template:


This is Shack Slides in the Unlimited template:


Shack Slides is really important to Joomlashack users, so we've been working hard on documentation.

Alex on the Joomlashack team took the time to create over twenty GIFs showing all the different effects you can use in Shack Slides:

  • Bounce
  • Slide-in
  • Fade in
  • Roll
  • Zoom etc. etc

There's too many effects to list here, so click this link to see how Shack Slides can showcase your images.

We also created videos on how to use key Shack Slides features. You'll find these videos on the Joomlashack YouTube channel.

We also wrote a guide to using the Shack Slides extension (this used to be a separate extension called Visionary). And we've updated all the Shack Slides documentation for October 2019.

If you need a Joomla slideshow, give Shack Slides a go! Joomlashack users have been relying on it for nearly 14 years!
