Custom plugins using image folders
To customize a slideshow as shown in cms_plugins.FolderSlideshowPlugin, just do
the following in your own project:
- create a file '' in your application root (where resides):
from cms.plugin_pool import plugin_pool
from django.utils.translation import ugettext_lazy as _
from image_filer.cms_plugins import FolderSlideshowPlugin
class CustomSlideshowPlugin(FolderSlideshowPlugin):
name = _("Custom slideshow")
class Meta:
proxy = True
render_template = "slideshow.html"
- create an appropriate 'templates/slideshow.html' relative to your application's
root (look at 'image_filer/slideshow2.html' for guidance)
