Kupo Slides Free

Kupo Slides Free is a Fully Customizable Slide Show Extension for Joomla! Using optimized lightweight JavaScript, Kupo Slides displays clean, simple and smooth transitional slide shows. Kupo Slides Free consists of just a module and is very simple and straight forward, built for people who just want a single gallery with a few custom options that looks good.


Kupo Slides Free has been completely re-written to fit into the Kupo Slides Structure (as this was previously Power Slide Free). This free module has a few major new features, including 4 transition effects (animation between slides) and User Defined Thumbnail sizes and resizing. The HTML, CSS and JavaScript has been completely reworked and optimized to current web standards, plus the visual layout style redone – based on the upcoming Kupo Slides Placebo Punk template.

Image Slides can be generated automatically just by dumping images into a predefined folder, or you can use the popular XML display method – which displays slide information and links by reading from the XMl file directly. This XML method is enabled by default as a demo on install – so you can get a feel for how it works.

  • Multiple New Transition Effects – Slide and Fade effects on Both InfoZone and Images
  • Automatic Configurable Thumb Sizing – thumbnails can be generated manually or automatically, and also managed

Kupo Slides Free also has two commercial versions, Kupo Slides Base (Formerly Power Slide Pro, which has a comprehensive admin component and advanced module) and the new Kupo Slides Pro (Has a powerful range of features including a built in template system for example).
