The functionality is somewhat different, as I wrote this module last year (original thread here, although the module has developed since) primarily to help tutors who had directories full of raw digital photographs that they wanted to display, so the idea was to make numerous large images easily navigable and bandwidth-friendly within reason, and captioning was added as a bit of an afterthought. However, it would be nice to be able to offer a resource more targetted to pp-style presentations, especially with this direct "tidy-up" option.
I'd love to see it, can it be opened up for access?
thanks - will
That is GREAT!
we aim to please!
James it worked perfect!! Thanks. I did the translation into Spanish so if you want to add it to the Lang´s, I send it here.
Please let us know when you upgrade the module (if you do). I find it great automatic resizing and that one can add pictures to the slideshow even after it is done, just by dropping a new jpg image in the directory!!. Gastón
Many thanks for your translation into Spanish, this is now in the zip. I am glad the module works for you, it was always meant to be user-friendly rather than technically impressive. The most recent code update was the 9 May 2006, when I removed a bug from the backup/restore function.
Latest version is always available here:
Hi!! Here I am again, I am using slideshow a lot. Is there any newer version?
If there is please send it and I wil gladly translate the new messages.
I am having a problem with the captions, when I write themn using accents like á é í or Ñ ñ etc. I get rubbish after saving and If I use the html "á" for example it one works one time then it dissapears.
I don't know which version you are using - the latest version (2006082800) may have solved your problem. I did try with those characters and they all worked fine for me on this version, but there may be server related character type issues. The latest version is always at http://virtual.cornwall.ac.uk/downloads/slideshow.zip and the main discussion for this module is at http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=38935
If the latest version does not solve your problem please let me know and I'll see what I can do
