mw-slidy provides a system for creating a http://www.w3.org/Talks/Tools/Slidy2/Overview.html#%281%29 HTML-slidy slideshow as a MediaWiki extension. The code is based on the http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:BR/use_S5_slide_system_in_the_mediawiki/en S5 slide system in MediaWiki extension.
In the beginning of the page to be used for a slidy show, simply add the text
this will add a right-aligned label when viewed as a normal mediawiki page. When the label is pressed, a new html is opened that shows the contents as a HTML slidy slide show.
Each level 2 mediawiki title is converted into a new slide.
To change the default theme, use the "theme keyword". E.g. to use the w3c theme, add:
<slidy theme="w3c" />
Themes are available in the themes/ sub directory. To create your own theme, simply copy one of the existing themes, and change the CSS to your fancies.
Please send me your modified themes, and I will be happy to include them into future versions!
