Slideshow Addon

The Slideshow Addon for Envira Gallery allows you to create a slideshow within the Lightbox view of your Envira Galleries.

Note: If you’d like to create an on-page slideshow of your Envira Gallery, we recommend our sister product, Soliloquy, which can produce slideshows based on an Envira Gallery’s images.

Please follow our instructions on how to install and activate addons.

In this instance, you’ll be activating the Envira Slideshow Addon.

While editing your Envira gallery, navigate to the Slideshow tab then enable and configure the Slideshow options.
You can configure your gallery's slideshow options in the Slideshow tab.


If you disable auto-play for your Slideshow or want to give visitors the option to pause the slideshow, be sure you’ve enabled the Gallery Toolbar to appear in the Lightbox tab when editing your gallery. The Slideshow’s play/pause icon will appear in this toolbar.

The Slideshow play icon will appear in the gallery toolbar, which can be enabled in the Lightbox tab settings.

That’s it, you’ve successfully configured your gallery’s slideshow!

Q: My slideshow is rapidly flickering through images, what’s wrong?!

A: This can happen if you’ve left the Slideshow Speed empty or set a value too low for the desired results. Remember that the value in this field is measured in milliseconds; for example, 5000 milliseconds = 5 seconds. Try increasing the value of this field and check that it resolves the rapid flickering through your slideshow images.

This table describes the available configuration options for your Envira Galleries when using this Addon.

The Programmatic Name and Programmatic Values columns are used when configuring the Dynamic Addon’s shortcode or template tag, or when overriding the default settings for creating a new Gallery.
