Automatic Confluence page or gallery slideshow

We'd like to build a wallboard showing a set of Confluence pages on rotation (say 5 seconds per page). Ideally without the Confluence chrome showing. Does anyone know of a good way of doing this, either with a Confluence plugin or something that sits as part of the browser?

Failing that, does anyone know of an alternative to the gallery macro that will rotate through the image slideshow automatically?

You may also want to try the Image Slider plugin, which lets you automatically slide through images or any other Confluence content.

Thanks Remo - we're on a really old version of Confluence at the moment, but i'll take a look at the plugin when we upgrade - it looks really useful.

Unfortunately Confluence does not support this out of the box. However, the easiest way to accomplish this would be to create an html page that loads Confluence content via the JSON RPC API and uses that data in a javascript content slider, such as Bxslider.

Another idea would be to load it with "?decorator=none" in the url, but that doesn't fully distill the data to the page content.

If you do not have the required time/skill to make this happen, I'm more than happy to find the best expert to help you based on your requirements.

Good luck!

Thanks Dennis. I think using the API might be a bit beyond me right now, but I followed your general idea and found http://www.troywolf.com/articles/client/siteshow/ which served my purposes well.

What we did in that case was to open all the required pages as tabs in Firefox and use the Automatic tab swticher extension of Mozilla firefox. Additionally put the browser in full screen (F11). Check https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/auto-toggle-tabs/

And thanks Renjith too. That particular add-on doesn't seem to support Firefox 11, but I found https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tab-slideshow/ which does the job.

Oh yeah, it was meant for a bit previous versions of Firefox!
