What is Slideshow Manager?

Slideshow manager is a CMP (custom manager page) and snippet. The manager allows you to easily upload new slides and schedule them based on start date and end date. You can also just put slides in a TBD (to be determined). Slideshow Manager allows you to have as many slides shows, called albums, as you want on your site.


Slideshow Manager was written by Josh Gulledge to be a robust slideshow manager for MODX, first release was in spring 2011.
