This plugin uses the following components:

  • Slides

Slides component

To use this component you can use {% component 'SlideShow' %} in your page.

The slides component has the following methods and properties


The component doesn't use any component properties.


The methods that are use are getSlides() which gets all the slides saved to the database. This is saved to the property $slides with the onRun() function. So you can use __SELF__.slides in your component partial

Change styling

The slider has some custom styling, if you want to change it, change it in your theme with some custom styling.

Change html

If you would like your own html for the data. You can do so by overriding the default partial in your theme. For more info take a look at https://octobercms.com/docs/cms/components#overriding-partials

Seed dummy data

To have some data when developing change your APP_ENV to 'dummy' and run php artisan plugin:refresh GetRight.Slider
