Let's combine funds for a CMS Slider

Hello all,

Like me, I have seen that many people are frustrated by the lack of a dynamic CMS slider which can support images. Forum-slider has a mod on this site but it works with RSS and is not the ideal solution. Images have to be included near the top with BBCode instead of attachments which is hardly aesthetically appealing.

Let's all get our cash together and hire a programmer to do this for us. There are literally hundreds of free scripts which we could use. We just need to get a programmer to dynamically pull the content from our CMS systems.

So let's all pledge some money for this project and get it moving. I pledge $25.

Who is with me?

If it uses a good slider like WOWslider or Nivio and pulls images & text from CMS articles and forum posts, then I am in for €25 as well.

Once there are enough pledges, we can post this in the paid modifications requests forum.

There are plenty of qualified coders around. I'd prefer a coder who has a proven track record. But lets see if there are enough people wanting to pledge...

While vbcover its products are great, I do not install encoded products. I want to be able to modify software to my liking or if a developer becomes unavailable I want another coder to be able to update the software. I have been burned too often.

I can completely understand why Lionel encrypts his software though. Any vb addon which is publicly released instantly gets nulled and released on vbteam, etc.

Alright, so we have $75 raised. Anyone think it's time to go ahead and solicit for this? I'm sure once we have a firm price, some more folks will come on board. I will go ahead and post this.

I think we need some more people to join in. I pledged €25, which is about $35. So we are at $85. We are not going to get quality for that. Lets see if we can reach 200.

Definitely, I think we'll need about $200... but it would be good to have a figure in mind. I think we can easily sway 3-4 more folks to help out and get this underway.

Guys, I started working on this myself and have so far been successful.

http://www.sectalk.com/boards/content/

As you see there, the slider is working.. but I am having the issue of the images not being resized properly. If all your images are the same side, then it isn't a problem.. but if you are having different sized images which need to be cropped, the solution isn't ideal. I'm still working on it and should have something done soon.

Would you be willing to share your code here? Maybe with multiple brains working on it, we could get a working solution.

Hey guys,

Seems like I've got it working really well now:

http://www.sectalk.com/boards/section/food-11/

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.
