A few ideas for you guys to improve this module...

- Change slide feature to show text from right to left (instead of top to bottom as it is now).
- Add left and right arrows so users can scroll back and forth manually.
- Give admin the ability to change the time between slides.
- Ability to run multiple sliders showing different info, I want one slider for forums 1-3, another for 4-6, and another one for the CMS articles.
- Ability to load graphics within the admin panel.
- Scaling attachment background images - reduce size to fit the width at least.
- Size configurable in the admin control, not the theme variables.

That's it for now...

A couple of those are already in the Pro version. Others are already on the drawing table for a future version. The rest I will definitely take into consideration for a future version. Thanks!

This is a "must have" in pro version. I'd like to have it soon

Another thing: the option to resize the height and width of textblock and the transparency.

You can already resize the width of the textblock via stylevars. The height is purely based on the height of the slider (left and right content) or the amount of content (top content). Opacity is hardset, but I could possibly add that as a stylevar as well.

As far as the prev/next and all that, its in the plans for v3, which I am planning to be a major overhaul of the entire thing. I will say its in the design stages, and I hope to be in the development stages sometime soon. It'll probably still be awhile before its ready though, unfortunately.

I've responded to your same question over on the DBT support site.

Great mod, thanks for it!! I do have a question though.
Any way to have the image that is "fit" in the slider to be centered instead of pulling from the top? I find that it would work fine to show the center section of images that ar too tall for the slider.

Not right now, but I will look into it. It will definitely be fixed in the next version (currently in the planning stages).

Also, please remember to click Installed. Thanks!

I am having one issue, it seems to want to run the same slider multiple times in a row. No other plugins added.

It appears the issue is that you are having it pull 10 articles, but you only have 5-6 articles total on the site, so its causing that to duplicate some of the articles. Try lowering the latest article count to 3-5 and see if that fixes it.

Brad

EDIT: Disregard that comment, as it should only display the max number of slides as there are available content items. So if you only have 5 articles, but have it set to display the 10 most recent, it should only display what's available, which is 5. What are your settings for the CMS slider? (screenshot?)
