Software development stage: stable
Plone S5 allows you to create presentations straight from Plone in any browser using S5.
  • An implementation of Eric Meyer's S5 project
  • For more information on that see:
  • A simple way of implementing browser based slide shows in Plone
  • All credit goes to Eric, any blame for this version should come to me.


  • As per any standard Plone product
  • Unpack into the Products directory, restart Plone, then install from the Add/Remove Products directory inside portal_setup
  • Then add in a document (like this one) and , you'll see a little red icon in the document icons, click on it S5
  • This will take you to the S5 presentation of that piece of content

How it works

  • Write a document in Plone, using H1's or headings to seperate your slides.
  • This example was written in Plone using Epoz.
  • You can also write in STX or reSTX, anything that produces H1's in HTML
  • Then click on the S5 icon and bingo you'll see a slide show. It chops each of the H1's into separate slides, placing the paragraphs under the tags inside the slide itself
