Integrating WebDeveloperPlus' Featured Content Slider in vba or any other page

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (3 votes - 3.67 average) Installs: 31
Released: 31 Jul 2009 Last Update: Never Downloads: 4
Not Supported Template Edits Re-usable Code Translations  

Hello All,

I have been waiting for the stand alone version of frontpage slide show to get it integrate it with vba. However the creators have been very disappointing in terms of delivering it. Hence, I have started searching for alternative and finally got one.

This hack was written by webdeveloperplus and I am only giving instructions in how to integrate it to vba. However this works on any page you would like it to appear.


So let the fun begin and integrate this in ONLY THREE STEPS

First go to vBulleting ACP --> Style Manager --> Edit Templates

Open "headinclude" and ADD the following code at the end of it

Second go to vBulleting ACP --> Style Manager --> Main CSS

Scroll to the bottom of the page where it says "Additional CSS Definitions"; which is partitioned in to two parts ADD the following code to the second partition.

Third and Last, go to vBulleting ACP --> vBa CMPS --> Add Module --> Template Module

Ok now we'll have to create the actual box

Module Title: Rotating Articles
Active: Yes
Template to incluce: adv_portal_rotating_articles
Style: "Pick the Style you would like to add it to" Please note if you are adding it to more than one style make sure that you do the previous two steps to all of them.

Template Content: ADD the following code

Use Module Wrapper Template: No
Then just SAVE.

Then just add it to whatever page you would like it to show in vba

ok now it will be working perfectly except for the pictures which needs to be changed as well as the TEXT

To change the small Pictures please change the green text above
To change the small picture' texts please change the dark green text above
To change the larger pictures please change the orange text above
To change the Larger text in the larger pictures please change the brown text above
To change the smaller text in the larger pictures please change the purple text above

I hope you all are familiar with the <a href="..."> as a the larger text has one to link to the thread or whatever you want as well as the smaller text has one right after it with a click-able "read more"

[OPTIONAL] Forth Step (if you would like to add more rows)

I hope this is easy to follow.

ENJOY

This is great!

Got it working pretty quickly and customized it to 600px wide and now working on a little bit more of the coloring of the slideshow. But, works great!

Looks very nice. But how can we grab images and text from latest threads in a forum and get that to rotate in this Content Slider?

Not sure if that can be done easily, but I use the vBcover product: vBslideshow for that.

I'm using this mod just for a nice visual change to the forum homepages.

kjsmith84, it is probably the 5000 in the last part of the code. Change the number and see if that affects it. Make it a 7000 or a 3000 to see if that changes the speed.

Also, just noticed that your 'thumbnail' images are a little too big which is breaking the style of the tabs on the right. They should be something like 75px wide and 50 high.

thanks I will try that-
as far as the pics- yeah I noticed that- I need to resize them still


-----------------
tried it- the higher the # the slower it rotates-or smaller # = faster rotation.

I have it on 7000 right now.

OK, I need to ask a silly question please.

How do I center this on the page? I am not a css coder by any means, and while I love this, I can't get it centred, and it doesn't look great being left aligned.

It doesn't work hardly at all on my CMPS page (see errors up 2 posts), but i put it on a custom html page to get it right before i attempt the CMPS again.

But I still got issues..
