        • 1) Unzip the Frontpage Slideshow Standalone version.
          2) Navigate to the slideshows folder in the unzipped folder.
          Frontpage Slideshow Standalone -> fpss -> slideshows.
          3) Create a copy of the demoslideshow folder and name the copy myslideshow.
          4) Upload the fpss folder and all the subfolders and files to the root directory of your server.
          5) Create a snippet and paste the code below (note: make sure you have the correct absolute path to your server)

          <?php
          // START of "Frontpage Slideshow" settings
          $nameOfSlideshowToDisplay = "myslideshow"; 
          $URLofyoursite = "http://www.example.com"; 					
          $AbsoluteServerPathofyoursite = "/home/example/public_html/";	
          	
          // do not edit below this line
          include_once($modx->config['base_path'].'/fpss/mod_fpslideshow.php');
          ?>


          6) Once you have the snippet made and folders uploaded, insert the snippet into the location of the document you wish to see slideshow appear. From there make your own modifications to the slideshow.

            • I’ve setup one with custom flash that uses standard resource pages to add new banner images and set the links for the URL (image attached). It’s been through several different versions, but one might have had the numbered tabs on the bottom for users to change the active image.

              if there is interest in seeing it here is link to one site I have it on http://independenceeventscenter.com/. Let me know if there might be interest in me making that a "extra" for everyone.

              cheers

              • I would be interested in seeing something.
                • I’ll work on packaging this up with some simple instructions.

                    Still work on it but you can have a look what’s possible.

                    I used flowplayer.org slideshow and modified it via CSS, but please be warned ... their jquery files interfere heavily with the standard jquery files, which means, it would be almost impossible to have any other jquery run elements, other than flowplayer’ on your site. A reason for me to get rid of it. (Besides their support is ... there is none)

                    good luck
