The captifyContent module is a slick new way to display sections ,categories or content on your site visually. The module resizes the image that you have assigned to the section, category or content, lays it out in a simple flay lineup and then the captify script generates the sliding effect that you see above when you roll over the image.
Please note that if the section, category or content item does not have an image assigned to it in the section/category admin or the content item article then that section/category/content will not display.
Here is a demonstration of the CaptifyContent module in action.
The screenshot below displays the administrator features of the Captify Content module.
