"Tabs & Slides in Content Items" Plugin updated to v2.2: Now faster & better!

Postby fotisevangelou » Sun Jan 14, 2007 8:57 pm

The "Tabs & Slides In Content Items" Plugin version 2.2 has been released today.

More on the plugin here:
http://extensions.joomla.org/component/ ... Itemid,35/

Version 2.2 (released on January 14th, 2007) features:
- Major code shape up! We optimized the scripts' size and gathered all CSS code in one file only. This will help the customization a little more.
- Minor code fixes in the javascript code, extended compatibility with other scripts and minimized the possibility of conflict.
- Added "tab persistence", that means, if you reload the page, your content sticks to the tab you were on, before reloading the page. This was something many users asked for.
- Both "tabs" or "slides" appear now faster on pageload (they don't appear when all content -including heavy images- is loaded, as they did before).

The plugin is extremely easy to style to your own needs, using pure CSS. All you need to do is edit the single edit CSS file included with the plugin (read documentation for more).

To see the plugin in action, check out the official demo site at demo.joomlaworks.gr and download it from the Downloads Section of www.joomlaworks.gr.

Please read the documentation (included with the plugin) very carefully before posting any questions.

Let me the first one to conratulate you here for this version of this fantastic plugin. This is one of those plugins which I really liked in joomla.

I am gona try this version soon. I hope two of the things are fixed in this one which I really missed in previous ones.

1. Was not able to create PDF and Print with out showing tabs and slides tags in output.
2. Whole content was missing when page was translated to arabic with google translation modules from Joomlaspan.

Would be very nice if these two work.

Thanks

Hello
I am having a problem with slides. The slides are not stretching across the page, until you open the slider. When you close the slider they shrink back to half of the page. The link below is to the page with the problem:

http://www.janetweberdesign.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=14&Itemid=27

Let me know what has to be done to fix this problem.

Thank you

The Slides don't stretch when closed, because the are forced the container td's width.

When you open the slides and content appears, this content forces the container td to stretch.

Open up mambots/content/plugin_jw_tabs_slides/tabs_slides.css and play around a bit with the CSS file. Try changing this:

Code: Select all

.jw_slidetitle {cursor:pointer;margin:0px;overflow:hidden;background:url(slide_bg_r.png) no-repeat right top;}


to this

Code: Select all

.jw_slidetitle {cursor:pointer;margin:0px;overflow:hidden;background:url(slide_bg_r.png) no-repeat right top;width:100%;}


OK?

In any case, it's clearly a CSS issue along with the issue of Joomla! content.

Play around a bit to get it working. Perhaps add an empty div like this:

Code: Select all

<div style="width:100%;display:table-cell;"></div>

If I put a fiull line of text on the page somewhere everything is fine. A partial line of text and it shrinks back to the default left column size.

Hi Fotis,

Great plugin. I am using it on my website - http://www.snug.net.au - looks great.

Question - Would you know of a way to get
1. Latest content to display in one of the tabs
2. Most popular content
3. RSS feed

Many thanks in advance

NickHo :D

Hi Fotis,

I subscribe to Rocket Theme. I see that their latest template Vortex has been designed to cater for your plugin tabs and slides

The plugin does not display too  well on Rocket Theme previous templates - Sporticus, number of people curious to find a fix. Any ideas on how to make it display "pretty".

Many Thanks

NickHo

Hi fotisevangelou
the mambot is really great, however I am having one problem with the TABBED side of things

I am trying to get 6 tabs, but after the 3rd tab the content somehow goes awry for no apparent reason, is there a logincal explanation for this..

url -> http://wildflytravel.maxdefinition.serv ... 4&Itemid=5

I am using firefox 2 to test in

it would really be great to get an answer soon about this
thanks

Update to the post above
By clicking on the 3rd tab you will see that the content does not fit in properly...

How do I turn off the tab persistence?
I'm trying to use tabs to display various options on multiple choice questions and want to always start a new question with tab #1.  Currently it shows the tab # chosen from the last question even in brand new content.
