A typical Joomla! Website consists of one component and many modules. Modules are a bit “bigger” than plugins and much smaller than components. Usually modules display content to the end user without his interaction. Modules execution cycle, Joomla finds module is assign to particular menu item and appears in particular module position within template index.php. In this article I am not going to build “Hello World” module (sorry everybody for disappointment), instead we are going to focus on building slider. To be more precise we are going to use jquery fractionslider ( website: http://jacksbox.de/stuff/jquery-fractionslider/ or GITHUB: https://github.com/jacksbox/jquery.fractionslider ) and transfer it into fully functional Joomla! 3 module. Source code for this tutorial is located on GitHub , it is fully working slider, the same as on my frontpage.
TKSD Fractionslider is Joomla! 3+ module for simple banners show with animated captions. It is based on jQuery plugin fractionslider with up to 10 images, up to 3 image captions per image with custom background colors and animations. Easy to install in configure by use of module manager
