This Joomla override allows you to display some articles in a horizontal carousel. You can use different Joomla core modules for this override: mod_articles_category, mod_newsflash, mod_articles_latest, etc. The CSS and the JS codes are added directly in the override, rather than in the 'user.css' and 'user.js' files. At the bottom of this article, you can download the files of the override.
