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

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

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.

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

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

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View 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

When you add more boxes you are going to need to change the CSS code as well to accommodate it as well.

Sorry but my knowledge in CSS is very basic.

I hope someone else can help you in this.

It would be great if this could be set to grab image, title and teaser from a predefined forum. Similar to how vba's recent_threads or news module works.

if you are going to use this on the FORUMHOME template, just add the template content from Step 3 into the FORUMHOME template in the location you want it to be displayed and disregard all of those settings, those are specifically for vBa only.

You know what would even be better? If someone can take this code to create a product
I wish I know how to do it, I would have done it in the first instance

if I can get the support or at least someone shows me where to start I would take this as a project. I would love to learn how to convert this to a product.

to add more rows...

just follow this....

Style & templates -> Style manager -> edit templates -> adv_portal_rotating_articles

add:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

AFTER


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

You could later continue with 6,7 etc ( look red number )

Then add:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

AFTER


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Then go to Style & Templates -> Stylemanager -> Main CSS
and scroll to the bottom( second section )

Change the heights here ( marked with red )


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

This worked for me...
