Convert content of wiki pages to S5 Slideshows

Notice: This plugin is unmaintained and available for adoption.


This plugin converts Trac wiki pages into a DHTML enabled slideshow using S5. It is loosely based on the DocuWiki S5 plugin.

Click the Slideshow link at the bottom of any wiki page to view that page as an S5 SlideShow. Alternatively you can add the [[SlideShow]] macro to a page.

A top-level level 1 heading (= Heading =) and its following section will be converted into the title page of the slideshow, with following level 2 headings and their corresponding sections converted into subsequent slides.


The following themes are available:

  1. blue
  2. default
  3. dokuwiki
  4. flower
  5. i18n
  6. pixel
  7. yatil

Themes can be selected from the macro with: [[SlideShow(theme=<theme>)]].


= Slideshow Title = Title page content.
== Slide 1 Title == Slide 1 content.
== Slide 2 Title == Slide 2 content.

Of which the first page will show as follows:
