Slideshows are a great way of displaying banner ads and promotions on your website. I have used a variety of Joomla slideshows in the past but the one I keep on coming back to is the Hot Effects Rotator module.
It is a versatile module that allows for individual links on each image and a huge amount of transition effects. You can choose up to 9 images for the slideshow and you can choose what order they go in. The module size is controlled by just entering in the pixel size of your slideshow.
If you want visitors to control the movement of the slides you can do that by enabling iPhone like buttons on the module. This looks good and also gives visitors control over what slides they see.
This is a hassle free way of displaying banners across your website. The backend parameters are easy to follow and the slideshow can be installed and ready to on onto your website in a number on minutes.
There aren’t any advanced parameters in the backend so if you want a simple slideshow that will display your images with links then the Joomla Hot Effects Rotator Module will serve you well. If you want to see this module in action, check out the front page slideshow on www.shop4glasses.ie. If you are looking to download the module, you can here.
