want to buy this plugin, but have few questions. Is it possible to add fade effect on item which goes under the stack? Is it possible to make item which goes under that stack not to go this far away (we just don’t have enough space for it, so it should fade out and move to stack much early).

King Regards, Alex.


You could do these changes if you know jquery. You could change how much the item goes out before coming back behind again. Also add the opacity if desired.

Hi, I found you have a lot of slide script. What I just ask in other comment.

We hope to display the Google calendar page on one of slide. Can we insert Google calendar in the slideshow?

Hope it can do it. Thanks!


If the calendar is html markup then I believe it could work.

Hi, I am interested in this beautiful stack photo slideshow but I am wondering if it is possible to use it as a frontpage slideshow in a joomla template?

Thanks in advance


No, this is not for joomla, its jquery plugin.

Can I change the direction of the photos to go to the bottom instead off the top (it covers up the text above it)?

I saw in another copy you said we could control how far it moved away from the photo stack in the jquery script. Can you be specific as to where that can be changed? (I don’t know jquery).



There are 4 slide directions which can be changed in settings: horizontalLeft, horizontalRight, verticalAbove, verticalRound

You can increase how far the slide moves outside by modifying this function in stackGallery file:

function getSlideSize(){
        var div = $(playlistArr[0]);//to do: make slide diferrent size
            verticalValue = div.outerHeight() + 100;//aproximations
            horizontalValue = div.outerWidth() + 50;
            verticalValue = div.outerHeight()+ 10;
            horizontalValue = div.outerWidth()+ 5;

Ok great…I found that code. So if I want it to not move very far from the stack would I change the +100 to +20 or something like that? It doesn’t appear to be changing, so I want to make sure I understand it correctly. Thanks for your quick response!

You have to make a change and replace the minified js file from deploy folder.

Is it possible to place the caption in a div or section out side the picture?


Yes but may require changing some css if slide has overflow hidden.

Hello, how are you. I am having some difficulty installing this slideshow with captions plugin. I unzipped file and attempted to open several of the html files in the _deploy directory and got a blank screen. Upon firebug inspection, I saw following error: Uncaught ReferenceError: isIEbelow9 is not defined. I have tried various other things to get this working but no luck so far. I have read and attempted to follow help file but perhaps I am missing something. Any additional clarifications, or details in step by step installation process, etc. might be helpful. I assumed I could use the demo html files in _deploy right out of box but perhaps I am missing something here.

How to put the slider in a specific location ? I need to use the slider within a specific DIV. Thanks.


Just put all slider html into your div.

I put , but did not work out.

Following the demonstration:

The slider is always in the middle of the screen, never gets into the desired location.

Sorry for my English , I ‘m not very good in English. I am Brazilian and I speak Portuguese.

That is because css on slider div is making is 100% size, and your parent div has no css. You should shrink the size of your parent div.


Does it supports presentation of different photo sizes and/or orientation? eg Landscape and Portrait images mixed.

Thank you


No, slides are same sizes. We will add different slide option in future updates.

Hello, I purchased your jquery stack banner slideshow plugin. In the help folder (help.html file), it says to open the index.html file and copy data for the header and body to use the plugin.

There is no index.html file in the plugin files. Could you please tell me where to find the header and body information that I need to copy into my site? It looks like I am missing a file. Thanks.


This refers to the any demo page that is included, for example index_horizontalLeft.html or whatever you use.


click the album’s photo always show the last one, NOT FIRST photo!! how to modify it?? thanks. (old -> new)


Slides are listed in the order they appear in html, so if you want front to back, list your slides in reverse.


If you just want thumbnail to be at the beginning, you could just move html for the first thumbnail at the end ( div class=”sg-thumb” )
