Thats the point of this initiative. The slider should be able to pick images & text (caption) from CMS articles and forum threads.

Good to see more people join in. We are at $110 now.

$135 now.

I think I've got a good start to this, but in case that I can't get it to work properly or we want more bells and whistles added in, this will be great. I hope to release something workable for free though, I've been reading a lot of programming articles regarding vB the past couple of day.s

Have you tried this? http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=259842

No issues for me whatsoever, and easy to configure for either fixed for variable width forums.

That seems something different. That does not pull images / text from CMS articles or forum posts. Or am I wrong about that? In any case: I installed it and it does not add the needed table to the database, and therefore it doesnt work for me.

BTW: your reviews section and a lot of other links do not work.

Yep, had some server errors but it's all cleaned up now so they should work.

But yes you are right on how this mod works. It doesn't automatically pull images from the CMS but that's ok because I didn't' want it to in the first place. Manually entering in the info allows me to link to both CMS articles as well as forum posts.

But it's a matter of personal preference, and if this doesn't work for you, then I agree, that a new mod needs to be made.

Yes, that works with RSS. If you enable images and full text in RSS you invite scrapers to steal your content. That is a very big problem for me.
RSS is a workaround. Having something that works directly with vbulletin would be nice.

For now, I'm trying to figure out how to get a image to center inside the frame when it is overly large. Right now, it aligns the top left corner of the frame with the image.

And I will definitely share my code. Hopefully I can put this in a product with all the settings inside the admin cp.


Most script and/or classes are counting from 0,0 (top left edge) to crop the image at a specific width. Some others, more sophisticated they're allowing to specify this top-left point on your own. But again is not so good. You most probably want to crop it having center the center of the image. You need to make some runtime calculations:
  1. Get the image's width eg 700px
  2. Subtrack the desired width eg 700-600 = 100
  3. Divide by 2 (100/2 = 50)
  4. Get the image's height eg 400 px
  5. Subtrack the desired height eg 400-350 = 50
  6. Divide by 2 (50/2 = 25)
After it the topleft position is: 25,50 (25px from top, 50px from left). With these settings you can get from an image 700X400, a new one 600X350 cropped centered.

By the way, my partner Jeff Ledger is planing to release such a slider the upcoming week.

I want a slider that can pull from a certain forum. I also want the ability to select certain threads. Maybe we need a “Promote to Slider” button

Oh, if anyone can pull this off then I’m in for a reasonable amount. I’ll pay good money for a slider that does what i want.

I just wanted to contribute to this topic and say that there are already plenty of lite and free sliders. Mainly for wordpress, why not convert them so we can use them with vB4? Check this out - http://www.wpwebhost.com/2009/12/10-...ordpress-blog/


We should use only this slider, simple, and goes well with the CMS/Blogs
