« on: February 28, 2012, 12:56:00 PM »
Is there a block that would display or topics like this?



Cheers

This is a Joomla website ... a recent posts block will do the same for smf/sportal but not sure about resized article/topic images displayed.
Might be a mod for that ...

Blocweb  templates did exactly the same but recently shut down.

Look around ... smf and here - recent posts with images.
At least you can just do the same without the images using recent posts block. It will show the users avatar if that is useful.

It should be possible to do the same to articles, or to sp_articles block or a boardnews block.

If you are interested, this is a customization project, involving mostly HTML and CSS. Very little PHP knowledge will be required.

Would be a nice addition to have a recent topics/select board with preview image, ... or same for article block.
Does it select the first image in an article or allow selection of any image, or uploaded image...? And the resize image?

Its a popular style of display for Joomla K2 content management, Drupal CCK, and blogs.

OK.  I have moved this to customization.

Actually, I would not promise the images and the image layout. Because that would almost certainly require changes on the database. And I am not so confident in doing that.  I have never packaged a mod, myself.

Here is what I would propose to help you with:
1) Begin with BoardNews, because it is already closest to what you wish to achieve
2) Change the style for the heading

If you want the picture layout to be like that, you will have to find another way. You can use a bbc table, or you can use HTML to create a floating img, or you can use the AEVA Media mod, for example (the caveat with AEVA Media is that its author will not be updating it for future versions of SMF).

I am not an awesome coder. So I will get you started and you will wind up learning quite a bit.
Ready?

The image makes the difference so without it the current blocks are fine. As its such a hassle ... probably not worth it (for me).
Maybe this year I will start learning php ... maybe. But it seems like a big leap to being able to understand where to get information in SMF and use it.
After Japan I will go back to civil engineering or perhaps back to school to do IT or computer science - again ...
Might specialize in web programming if it looks like I can make a decent living out of it, and the projects look interesting.

I think you can get the block to do what's in the image.
It would mean, I think, that the image that goes with each post would be left-floated even when you look at it.

Here's mod for a a bbcode float tag: http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=2305

See if you like it.  The rest is going to be easy, and I can show you how to do it.

Nice...! Is the resizing of the article list image automated  -  a mod?  I saw the SMF float mod but would be nice if you gave the custom code for the rest. Looks more like Joomla and wordpres this way.

You have some xHTML errors.
The browsers are trying to figure out what you probably MEANT to have instead of what you do have.
These may be the cause of the problem.

Of course the marquee tag is nonstandard.  But most browsers deal with it pretty well.  So I assume the problems are related to HTML "syntax errors" like unclosed  tags, improper nesting (<table></center></tr>), etc.

Please fix these problems and see how it looks after that.
