Joomla settings

This option only exists when you are on Joomla platform.



You can put your license key here to make the update indicator work. You can read more about this option in here.

Image URL

You can choose how to save the urls of the images in your sliders. If you choose Absolute, then the whole link will be saved, for example, but if you choose Relative, then the link will be only the path after your websites address, so in this example /images/thisimage.png. Relative urls are given to the end of the current website’s root link, so if you are developing on localhost, then you should use relative urls, so in the new place of the website the link to your images would still work, or use the Translate url option. On some servers the absolute path is necessary.

This option won’t change the previously saved sliders’ urls, only for the newly created ones.
