Vinaora Nivo Slider

Vinaora Nivo Slider is a great slideshow module for Joomla. It allows you to easily create an image slider (slideshow) using Nivo Slider.

Vinaora Nivo Slider has been tested in Joomla 1.6, Joomla 1.7, Joomla 2.5 and well-known browsers: Internet Explorer 7+, Firefox 3+, Google Chrome 4+, Safari 4+ and Opera 10+.

How to run demo

Open menu “Module Manager“, double click “Vinaora Nivo Slider” module, and then go to “Basic Options“. In “Rundemo”  section, choose one demo from the drop-down list. 


  • Does the Vinaora Nivo Slider support transparent PNG’s?
    No. Due to the way slide transitions work it will look weird.
  • Can I use images that are different sizes?
    No. Once the slider has loaded it won’t change size (it is set to the size of the largest image). So make sure all of your images are the same size.
  • Can I have multiple sliders on the same page?
    Yes but you will need to use jQuery v1.4 or greater for it to work.
  • Can I set a random starting slide?
    Yes but you will need to install Vinaora Nivo Slider 1.7.4 or greater. And choose startSlide = 0

  • Hello, i installed fine under J2.5 but cannot get it working. Only one picture displayed, no controls or sliding effects.
    Asking for assistance.
    Thanks Klaus

  • How do you disable the links on the sliders?

  • Hey guys,

    This looks like a great extension, but I am completely unable to install it. I’ve tried on two different machines, redownloading, but all I get is “There was an error uploading this file to the server.” I’m using the Extensions Manager – should I be doing something else?

    Thanks again,

    • Please unzip and upload this extension to directory [YourJoomla]/tmp on your server. After this, install from this directory.

  • Hey guys, thank for Nivo Slider. I have a questions: in the Amazing mode (when your link show) repeart the last pic and after next pic show the blank space. Can me solution this? because in the deafult mode the show pic is continuos. Thanks.

  • Hi, this is a great extension however it’s not working in IE8+. It works fine in safari, chrome and firefox. I’ve placed it within Joomla 1.7 and I’m using nivo_slider_2.5.11. My client would like to make his site live later this week but can’t until we resolve this issue. Is there a patch available or what do you recommend? Thanks..

  • the download link for 1.5 is broken!

  • Hallo!
