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)
