Introduction

Changed:
<
<
There is already a defacto standard for presentations, why this Plugin? This Plugin makes sense for organizations that do already have lots of content in TWiki: It is easy to create a web based presentation that contains many links to related content. The Plugin does not try to compete with the bells and whistles of the other presentation program, but the markup of TWiki and other Plugins like TWiki:Plugins/ChartPlugin, TWiki:Plugins/GaugePlugin, TWiki:Plugins/SpreadSheetPlugin, TWiki:Plugins/TWikiDrawPlugin can be used to create an appealing presentation.

To create your own template topic, copy the "Default Slide Template" section below into your own slide template topic and customize it to your needs. It can be activated as the default template in the Plugin's TEMPLATE setting, or per slide show with the %SLIDESHOWSTART{ template="MyOwnSlideTemplate" }% setting.
