We're happy to announce a new feature in Rover IDX 2.1.0 - a slideshow that has next / prev navigators and also two options to navigate to specific slides.

You can select the slideshow and it's options in the Rover IDX plugin >> Styling >> Property Page:

Bullets: A simplified interface of numbered bullets, each representing one slide.
