Slideshow Plus Gallery Installation

The slider gallery is a replacement for the default gallery provided with JEA.

Before installing the slider gallery, the JEA Slideshow Plus module must be installed. If you have not done so already download and install that module.

Then extract the files from slideshowplus_gallery.zip. The zip contains two files, the replacement gallery default_gallery.php and a joomla plugin loadmoduleparam.zip 

To install the gallery you need to create a template override of the file default_gallery.php. To do this place the extracted default_gallery.php in the following directory

PATH_TO_JOOMLA/templates/YOUR_TEMPLATE/html/com_jea/property/

If the directory does not already exist you will need to create it. For more information on template overrides see here 

Next you need to install the extracted plugin loadmoduleparam using the normal joomla intallation method. Once the plugin is installed you need to enable the content plugin "Load Modules with Parameters" using the plugin manager and set the plugins style (found in the plugin parameters) to be No Wrapping  

Finally you need to create a new Jea Slideshowplus module, set its module position to jeagallery and enable it for all pages. Any options you set in this module (e.g. thumbnail size and position) will be reflected on the property details page. Important: The Source Images from a Folder or JEA parameter, must be set to Folder.

To use the new slider gallery you need to ensure "Classical" is set as the gallery layout in Jea's property display options. To do this go to the JEA component in the backend. Select manage properties, click on the options icon, select the property display tab and set the gallery layout to "Classical".
