Wat does it do exactly ?

"Horizon Slim" Is a Joomla Module so you can put it in at any Module position. It will pull Information out of an ordinary Joomla Article to be displayed inside an horizontal acordion style box as seen above in this page.

Basically it can be used in two ways:

  1. to slide some Images and display the alt text of them as a transparent div overlay
  2. or to display Images and HTML formatted text inside the description including Links and Videos.

With the second variation you can use negetics "Horizon Slim" as a "banner Slider", a menu, an advanced image Slideshow, as graphical enhanced Article teaser just to name a few of the possibilities.

Even negetics "Horizon Slim" works pretty stable keep in mind that it is still in the beta phase.
I will try to make upcoming updates as compatible as possible but can't gurantee that they will be 100% compatible!

How does it work ?

At first I have to warn you do not use a Wysiwyg Editor to edit Articles you want to use with "Horizon Slim"
Most of them will put container elements around your input. If you are using a Wysiwyg try to use the "edit source" function if avaiable.

negetics "Horizon Slim" will pull data out of an ordinary Joomla Article. You might want to create an extra section and categories to store your horizon data chunks.
"Horizon Slim" will parse either just for images or for divs containing one or two images and possible paragraphs.

Using "Horizon Slim" just with images

To do so just create an Article only containing some Images. like this:

  1. <img src="path/to/image.jpg" alt="text for the description box" />
  2. <img src="path/to/image.jpg" alt="text for the description box" />
  3. <img src="path/to/image.jpg" alt="text for the description box" />
  4. <img src="path/to/image.jpg" alt="text for the description box" />

create a new horizonSlim Module choose the Article and a module position to put it in. Set the parameters for horizonSlim as described further down in this Article and you are good to go.

Using "Horizon Slim" with Divs and custom HTML

To do this create an Article containing some HTML structure like this:

  1. // First open a div
  2. // mandatory !
  3. <div>
  4. // add the Background Image
  5. // mandatory !
  6. <img src="path/to/background/image.jpg" />
  7. // add an additional Image to fade the background to
  8. // optional
  9. <img src="path/to/fader/image.jpg" />
  10. // add a link
  11. // this will make the hole Slide Link to the given URL
  12. // optional
  13. // add a paragraph containing your custom HTML code
  14. // optional
  15. <p>
  16. <h4>Custom HTML Code</h4>
  17. <p>
  18. you can put in here whatever you want ;)
  19. </p>
  20. </p>
  21. // close the div
  22. </div>
  23. // then add some more divs
  24. <div>
  25. <img src="path/to/background/image.jpg" />
  26. <img src="path/to/fader/image.jpg" />
  27. <p>
  28. <h4>More Custom HTML Code</h4>
  29. <p>
  30. you can still put in here whatever you want ;)
  31. </p>
  32. </p>
  33. </div>
  34. <div>
  35. <img src="path/to/background/image.jpg" />
  36. <img src="path/to/fader/image.jpg" />
  37. <p>
  38. <h4>Even More Custom HTML Code</h4>
  39. <p>
  40. and still you can here whatever you want ;)
  41. </p>
  42. </p>
  43. </div>

then create a new horizonSlim Module choose the Article and a module position to put it in. Set the parameters for horizonSlim as described further down in this Article and you will have some nice Eye-catcher for your site.
