Widget Slider - Frontpage Slide Show.

Demo: http://demo.webdeveloperplus.com/fea...ontent-slider/

This is based on the demo above. OK this is my first mod and I know the coding really sucks! But I thought I would get this out and see if anyone want to improve on it.
This is one of those frontpage slide shows that pulls your attachment and data from specified forums.

I hope this works for you.

Install:

Edit slider.php and at line 100:

$forumid - set the forum to pull slides
$limit - set the number of posts
$chars - set the total number of characters
$words - set total number of words

Upload Files.

Create PHP Widget and inser the following code:

ob_start();
echo '<div>';
echo '<center>';
require_once './clientscript/slider/slider.php';
echo '</center>';
echo '</div>';
$output=ob_get_contents();
ob_end_clean();

NOTE: This mod uses the jquery javascript so if you load it already for other plugins (i.e. cometchat) then look to see if you need to load it with the script.

I'm seeing this tagged a CMS widget, so exactly what are we pulling from a forum when we have no original forum post with attachments per-se for our CMS articles?

Perhaps, however I am still learning.
I need to template a bunch of this stuff and then do a hook.
I'd like to make it a plugin so you don't have to edit the php.

This is all stuff I will try to do...

I guess I see your point, but for me... My Articles start off as forum posts in the "Current Events" forum. Then I Post as Article...

I guess some people don't use stuff this way so, perhaps this isn't a good idea for your site.

Slideshow is working but images are causing all kinds of strange display (breaking out of the frame). Needs to be able to auto re-size images or only show portions of images and fill the entire frame. Cool start though. I am desperate for a slideshow like this.

Any idea how could I go about getting rid of the small preview images section completely?

actually i am just using your widget code, because already got a working slideshow software, but when i use it, somehow the forum goes to the left and the size of the font becomes smaller. Maybe some tags not closed or something missing?
