Tiki includes several content sliders (also known as carousels, image rotaters, or slide shows) that can be used to display a series of images or other content. This table is to provide some help in deciding which one to use.
|Slider||Plugin||Author URL||Code repository||Development Status||Pluses||Minuses|
|Swiper||PluginSwiper (wikiplugin_swiper)||http://idangero.us/swiper/||Github||Active||Lots of features. See http://idangero.us/swiper/demos/|
|Bootstrap Carousel|| List (wikiplugin_list) |
|https://getbootstrap.com/examples/carousel/||Github||Active.||Works with List wiki plugin.|| No plugin help modal.|
Sparse Tiki documentation.
Depends on Search, which adds a layer of complexity (for example, search set up and index rebuilding).
