Unfortunately Underdog's gallery mod is not available as his site is now down.  Does anyone have it they can send me?

Thanks!

I was hoping to find a vertical scrolling gallery block.... it sounded like that is what Underdog's code was.  I tried using the SCROLLING code around here somewhere with a number of the gallery codes around here but nothing has worked thus far.

I tried one a while back but deleted it ... I just checked, and the one Im using now is the standard gallery block in SP.

There are two versions of Aeva Media block available.

One I use which is static and shows images at Random

OR

One which scrolls which is used by the folks at Pixel Mansion.

As an FYI Underdog has had a few problems with his hosts ( who doesn't).

Daily backups mean less headaches

I tested an original copy and it works.

What would be PERFECT if it worked right.  Unfortunately it scrolls 2 or 3 images down... then resets and SNAPS back to the top and scrolls down 2 or 3 images then SNAPS BACK to the top.

:(

EDIT: Nevermind... it's now working... strange. 

Anyway... stupid question time...

Does including "scrollers" like this slow down a server/browser/anything?

I ask because I have two other scrolling blocks.

EDIT: THANKS by the way ... I appreciate the help!

Depends on your hosting account quality.

When I use too many things the server starts to restrict scripts so the site slows down. Worst case is when it cuts them off and the site goes down. Sometime I get a message from SMF at similar times saying it couldnt connect to the database.

So try it and see - if your site goes too slow or uses too many resources and stops ... cut back.
Never good to have too much running I think. And these days people using smart phones so could impact them too.

Well now poo...

I just updated to the 2.x version of Aeva media...

...now my static block shows a scroll bar... the reason?  The 2.x version includes a pop up when you hover over the name of the file... that pop up is being seen as part of the block so it adds a scroll bar because the block isn't long enough by the size of the pop up...

Any way to disable the pop up so it doesn't create a scroll bar...

I noticed it does the same thing for the scrolling block too... but after a second or so the scroll bar goes away.

Welp,

I just tried every block code in this thread and they ALL do it... vertical or horizontal.

I am attaching two photos to show what is happening.

The 2nd photo shows the POPUP box that appears... it is blank normally until you hover over an image.

On my site the scroll bars disappear once it starts moving.

You have to also remember  that aeva media is technically obsolete. It is not being updated.
I guess eventually someone will build a new gallery when smf 3.0 comes out in, well, maybe 2 years, maybe less.

Maybe Menalto gallery 3 will be integrated/bridged - it is much better.

I've asked this question before but managed a work-around without having to get the answer.

Can someone please post the code to set a block a SPECIFIC length.  I could fix this issue by simply forcing the block to be 50px or so larger than it is by default.  There has GOT to be a way to set blocks a specific length... right?

Any/all help is appreciated.

:)

can you set the block size with the height style i.e wrap your block with something like
Code: [Select]
<div style="height: 100px;">
blocky stuff goes here
</div>

That works for an HTML block... but these are PHP blocks... is there a PHP equivalent?

FrizzleFried,

While using php, just echo the necessary html.

ie. same as example above
Code: [Select]
echo '<div style="height: 100px;">
block content goes here
</div>';

Hi there,
I am able to adapt most items to the portal, but would like to be able to use the
aeva media mod or any other mod that would show media in a forum like this one..
