A simple mezzanine app which allows the placement of a Mezzanine Gallery within another Mezzanine Page as a slideshow

Project description

mezzanine-slideshows is for use with the Mezzanine CMS. It allows the placement of Mezzanine Galleries within other Mezzanine Pages as slideshows.


mezzanine-slideshows requires that the following python apps be installed:

  • Python 3.4

  • Mezzanine 3.1 (and its dependencies)

  • Django 1.7 + (this app uses the django migrations framework)


The easiest method is to install directly from pypi using pip by running the command below:

$ pip install mezzanine-slideshows

Super Quick Start

These instructions are for instant setup with the Mezzanine demonstration installation and allow you to place Mezzanine Galleries at the end of other Mezzanine Pages as slideshows. If you are using anything other than the standard templates provided with a fresh Mezzanine install or wish to place the galleries at any place other than the end of pages please follow the Regular Setup instructions below.

  1. Create a new Mezzanine project following the official instructions.

  2. Add mezzanine_slideshows to INSTALLED_APPS in immediately after your Django apps and before your Mezzanine apps:

  3. Add the following to TEMPLATE_CONTEXT_PROCESSORS in

  4. Run python migrate mezzanine_slideshows to create the mezzanine-slideshows models.

  5. Start the development server and visit to create a slideshow instance.

  6. Navigate to the page on the site to see your gallery displayed after the page text as a slideshow.

Regular Setup

  1. Add mezzanine_slideshows as an app in your project like this:

  2. Add the following template context processor in

  3. Run python migrate mezzanine_slideshows to create the mezzanine-slideshows models.

  4. In the header of your base.html file after the other css files add the lines

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="{% static "mezzanine/css/magnific-popup.css" %}">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="{% static "mezzanine-slideshows/css/owl.carousel.css" %}">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="{% static "mezzanine-slideshows/css/owl.theme.css" %}">
  5. At the end of your base.html file, just after

    {% include "includes/footer_scripts.html" %}

    add the following three lines:

    <script src="{% static "mezzanine-slideshows/js/owl.carousel.js" %}"></script>
    <script src="{% static "mezzanine-slideshows/js/jquery.magnific-popup.js" %}"></script>
  6. This step is key. Without it no slideshows will appear. Add the following code to any place you wish a template to check whether a slideshow should be displayed. If a slideshow is dues to show on that page it will be displayed at that place in the template:

    {% include "includes/mezzanine_slideshows.html" %}
