CW Quick Carousel

CW Quick Carousel

CW Quick Carousel is the quickest and easiest way to add an image carousel to your Joomla website.

Simply add the module, add your carousel slides with an image, title, caption, and link for each slide, and publish the module. The carousel is based on the Bootstrap carousel, but you can easily override the output to use your preferred carousel script.

Creating a Template Override

If you want to override the standard layout, you have to create a template override as follows:

  1. Copy /modules/mod_cw_quickcarousel/tmpl/default.php to /templates/{YOUR_TEMPLATE}/html/mod_cw_quickcarousel/default.php *
  2. Modify as needed

* Note: If you want to have multiple template overrides, you can create multiple copies of default.php, but give it different names. Each new override will be available in as an option in the Alternate Layout parameter in the Advanced parameter tab in the module.
