I was asked recently how to go about making a Generico template to implement an auto-play slideshow in Generico. The auto-play slideshow in question was from this tutorial.
This is actually a good example of how you can use Generico, so I thought I would share it here.
To use the bundles, drag each over the green bundle box on an empty template to fill in the fields (as in the screenshot below). Then save the template.
In addtion to this, personally I would not be happy to have the id of the slideshow hardcoded to “slideshow.” This is because it makes it impossible to have two slideshows in a page. Instead I would use the Generico @@AUTOID@@ variable as the id and I would add a css class “slideshow” to the slideshow container div. I would then alter the CSS which currently acts on the “slideshow” id to use the “slideshow” class. (NB you can not use Generico variables in the custom css area, so using @@AUTOID@@ there would not work).
