Carousel Plugin for Joomla! Page Builder Gridbox

Carousel Plugin for Joomla! Page Builder Gridbox

Hello everybody! Today we have prepared a new plugin for Joomla Page Builder Gridbox. Ladies and Gentlemen, here comes a Carousel.

So, what is this Carousel plugin?! Broadly speaking, the Carousel plugin is falling into the Slideshow set. The outstanding feature of Carousel plugin is that it instantly displays a number of pictures in a single slide.

Carousel Plugin for Joomla! Page Builder Gridbox

The Slideshow displays only one picture in the slide, Carousel plugin is capable to display up to 12 pictures in a single slide.

Slideset and Carousel in a One Plugin

We thought to make 2 different plugins, Slideset and Carousel. But in process of creating Carousel we came to realize that the options of Slideset and Carousel plugins will be very similar. No point to create 2 similar plugins. We want to create the plugins with quality but not for quantity!

Thus wise, Carousel plugin include "Mode" option, which allows you to choose a method of sliding: Slideset or Slide.

What is the difference between the Slideset and Slide?! Slideset is moving at once all the pictures in single slide. Slider is moving just 1 picture in single slide.

Mmm… a lot of theory, you have just watch our demo and you will understand everything: Carousel - Gridbox Showcase.


In order for great looking of your Carousel, we have added 6 beautiful animations:

  • Fade;
  • Horizontal Fast;
  • Horizontal Offset;
  • Vertical Offset;
  • Zoom In;
  • Zoom Out.

Most interesting thing that the same animation looks differently for Slideset and Slide Mode's.

You can check out all available Carousel plugin animations on our demo site: Carousel Showcase.

Caption Options

Just as in Slideshow plugin you can add Caption (Title, Description and Button) for every picture. Each of mentioned elements you can customize according to design of your website.
