jQuery Content Slider
« on: November 22, 2010, 07:00:49 PM »
Greetings Simple Portal fans and devs.  I'm a freelance web designer that enjoys using SMF+TP for my forums, but find the 'front' page presentation lacking some present day features.

One of them being a content slider block in jQuery.  It would be nice to have a feature that converts the front page into more of a blog or ezine to highlight content in the forums.  Would be awesome to see what the community comes up with for their version.

Facebook/Twitter cluster in a block would be nice, too.  These are all things I am doing myself but they're all customized instances.  I thought it would enhance the 'portal' itself and really modernize SMF.

On my gaming clan-site: www.Black-Chapter.com I have a wordpress front page layout with a link to a SP powered SMF, this is so I can PODcast with some other plugins available with WP, but considering doing alot of heavy custom coding again in SP

This sounds similar to what the folks over at Dream Portal are up to.

Well if they are, I don't see anything related to it on their site.  I mean I 'can' do it myself with HTML/BBC blocks but think it would be great for everyone to have without the advanced HTML skills.

As you said, you con do it yourself in html, I don't think it's an option to integrate, then all portals will look similar

Please help. I am also implementing "Featured Content Slider" on my forum but it is working. I tested it on local, it worked fine.

Here is my website: http://www.theinfostrides.com

Here is the script source: http://webdeveloperplus.com/jquery/featured-content-slider-using-jquery-ui/

I got the Featured Content Slider working fine with HTML block but I developed a mod with it that requires PHP block. You can check here: http://www.theinfostrides.com

The slider does not work with "PHP Block". Here is the error message received:

Code: [Select]
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ',' in /home/xxxxxxx/public_html/Sources/PortalBlocks.php(3562) : eval()'d code on line 8
Any help here please!

This sounds all good and nice but the content can vary greatly so we won't be able to come up with something that can work for many.
And slowly, you come to realize... It's all as it should be...
