Nimbus comes with the inbuilt slider which made its debut in the Vision2 template from October 2008. This means that you dont need to intall any extra modules onto your site in order to get the popular sliding behaviour that is doing the rounds in webdesign at the moment. There are a total of 9 sliding positions available and they are easily activated to get your modules sliding.
The slider is controlled by the index.php file in Joomla 1.0 or in the template parameters in Joomla 1.5. You have full control over the speed of the slider as well as the titles of the buttons that triger the slide.
The slider will automatically appear on the page if you publish any module to the Slide 1 to 9 module positions. eg slide1 You might notice that Slide1 is not a normal module position in Joomla. The beauty of the Joomla 1.5 templating architecture is that this doesnt really matter as the template will tell Joomla that it exists anyway - so you can just go ahead and select it from the module list dropdown in the module admin, or type it into the dropdown box. In Joomla 1.0 you need to do an extra step to set this up.
To setup extra module positions in Joomla 1.0 - navigate to Site --> Templates --> Module Positions. You should see this screen:
In a spare module position type the names of the slide module positions you want to use. Its probably quickest to add all 9 just in case you need to use more slides at a later date. Enter the details in the exact manner as you can see below:
What if you dont want the slider but you still want the header?
Well that one is easy ... to make sure you can make the most of the template we have placed the user4 module position here. To activate the user 4 position simply publish any module to the user4 position and it will appear in the header area - Please make sure that all modules published to Slide1 to Slide9 are unpublished for that menu item or completely as well.
