Plugin Carousel

Use this wiki plugin, introduced in Tiki8, to display images in a self-advancing carousel. The plugin uses the infinite carousel jQuery module to display the images of a file gallery. It will produce something similar to http://themes.tiki.org/infinite_carousel. The library can be found at http://www.catchmyfame.com/catchmyfame-jquery-plugins/.

This plugin requires the Can view file galleries (tiki_p_view_file_gallery) permission.
