RokG2Slideshow is a extension of the RokSlideshow Joomla module that can pull the slideshow images from a Gallery2 installation as shown to the right.

All the original RokSlideshow functionality is preserved with new options for pulling images from a Gallery2 installation.  There are several different ways to integrate Gallery2 and Joomla.  This module is independent of the integration method (currently) and uses direct access to the Gallery2 installation to retrieve the photos.


In addition to enabling the Gallery2 integration,

  • specify the physical path to the Gallery2 installation on the server
  • specify the URL to access to the gallery via your website
  • select the type of images to retrieve from Gallery2 (random, recent, viewed, daily, weekly, monthly)
  • specify the number of image to retrieve and include include in the slideshow
  • optionally specify the Gallery2 album that you would like to limit the photos to
  • specify whether a URL should be associated with the image (none, album, image)
  • optionally specify a special URL to use to reach the gallery embedded in Joomla.  For example, gallery integrated with JFusion would have an embedded URL like: index.php?option=com_jfusion&Itemid=19


RokSlideshow is a Joomla! module was originally inspired by Slideshow by Aeron Glemann but rewritten from scratch by Olmo Maldonado. Since then it has been updated and modified by Djamil Legato. Most recently Aaron Nauman added the Gallery2 integration and packaged the module as RokG2Slideshow.
