RSGallery2 Dynamic Slideshow Module

Dynamic Slideshow module for RSGallery2 (gallery component for Joomla) is available now. Javascript engine is the same as in slideshow module release for Zoom Gallery. Engine is cross-browser compatible. The cool fading effect works in IE, NS6+/ Firefox, and Safari 2, while all other browsers such as Opera 8 will simply skip the effect but continue to display the images.

Coding for RSGallery2 was a pleasure. RSGallery2 lucks some of zOOm features, but the code logic is much more clear and simple.

As in zOOm slideshow module, this slideshow pauses onMouseOver event. Images are linked. When clicked, they are opened in RSGallery2 page. Through module admin side you may choose to enable/disable this feature. Images for slideshow can be picked by hits, random, rating etc.

Slideshow is centered horizontally and aligned to the top.

This is beta release. Tested and works with RSGallery2 1.10.4, 1.10.6 Alpha and Joomla 1.0.7. The purpose of this release is to get through some real world testing.
