Sorry.  I slipped a gear there.
You should start by checking the options SMF ARTICLES provides for truncating articles.

I was wondering if it was possible to add something like this for the SMF article system, where you have the latest articles in a list on the right and a slideshow of them from top to bottom and then it showing maybe a background image and a small bit of the article in the larger space. any help by any chance or is this even possible?

This is most likely possible.
You would have to go through the code for SMF ARTICLES, find the bits you want, and pop them into a php block.


Sounds like quite a bit of custom coding.

how I can implement the code in smf 1.1.13?

I have this error when testing the code:

Note: It appears that your database may require an upgrade. The version of your forum files are in SMF version 1.1.13, while your database is in the version of SMF 1.1.12. I suggest running the latest version of upgrade.php.

You must have the smf articles mod installed for this to work.
