This slideshow module is using bootstrap's carousel as it's foundation. There are two aspects to the module, you can either configure it to use all images in a selected folder or you can specify a category of articles to use the images set in each article to display. This will not work in Joomla! 3 and is for Joomla! 4 (testing purposes only at this stage)
Click on the above link to download the module, save to your local machine and then install using the Joomla! installation process. Once installed, goto the site modules listing and edit the parameters to suit your needs. Updates will use the Joomla! update system.
The options available are reasonably simple. Select folder or category which provides additional fields to set the folder from the dropdown list or select a category. Select the transition type, cycle time and file type so that only the files with that type (extension) will appear.
Then there are the usual settings for the module such as position, show or hide the title etc . . .
Display options allow you to show navigation icons, indicators and set the size of the display.
Captions settings give you some control of what is shown if necessary. The caption is derived from the file name substituting any "_" (underscores) with spaces for readability.
Then there is again more of the standard module settings for setting a class to the module, setting the heading tag and size of the module etc . . .
