Made changes to wiki page to account for rename S5Plugin -> SlideShowPlugin.

Convert content of wiki pages to S5 Slideshows

Notice: This plugin is unmaintained and available for adoption.


This page documents the 0.11/0.12 version of the plugin. For the 0.10 version documentation, see SlideShowPlugin/0.10?.

The S5 plugin converts Wiki pages into a DHTML enabled slideshow using S5. It is based loosely on the DocuWiki S5 plugin.

Click the Slideshow link at the bottom of any Wiki page to view that page using S5. 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.


There are 7 themes available, copied from the DocuWiki plugin as the original links on the S5 page were broken. The themes are blue, default, dokuwiki, flower, i18n, pixel, and yatil.

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