What's ShowPlus

ShowPlus is an eye-catching slideshow for a front-page to display a set of images with user-defined transition between them. It is easy to get started with but offers a number of customization options for more advanced users.

showplus is powered by a slideshow script built entirely with the MooTools JavaScript framework that ships with Joomla, and uses no Flash technology. Having a showplus slideshow on a page incurs a footprint of less than 30 Kb with only a single CSS file and a JavaScript file included in the page header.


  • Choose from six customizable transition types: fade, zoom, pan, Ken Burns effect, push, wipe
  • Attach captions to images with multilingual support and a default caption
  • Hyperlink each image to an arbitrary location
  • Order images according to filename or last modified time, shuffle images each time the page is shown, or specify custom order
  • Display horizontal or vertical navigation bar with small thumbnail images that allow for fast navigation
