015 - Create a module containing a Google Gadget

Postby MiCCAS » Sun Dec 02, 2007 4:24 am

Hi There!

As per http://code.google.com/p/google-highly- ... %20Summary , I am developing a module which allows you to use a Google widget on your Joomla! installation.

Version 1 can be downloaded here, please let me know if you have any tips: http://code.google.com/p/google-highly- ... Summary#c9

Ideas for next version:
  • Make border options easier
  • Develop more than one Google module

Questions:
  • Is it possible to show images on the parameters page?
About Me: I'm currently 15 years of age (turning 16 on the 12th of this month), and I am heavily interested in the Joomla! platform/system. I current reside in Australia, attending a High School in Melbourne.


Claimed: Nov 28 Due Dec 26

MiCCAS -

Welcome to Joomla! - Thanks so much for joining this contest. This is a very cool task. Hopefully, we'll get some good community feedback for you. I know embedding Google Gadgets into a Joomla! website is going to be very popular.

GHOP Contestants Please Read: Task Process Start to Finish for important updates on the contest.

Have fun and good luck with the contest!
Amy :)

No worries, I just want to make sure that what I've done here is fine then I'll port the others over, no point making the same mistake on all of them.

I will try and make the changes as per my first topic tonight.

BUMP!

EDIT:

And, may I ask how I would go about adding spaces between each option:

Code: Select all

<param name="border" type="radio" default="1" label="Border" description="Change the border around the [youtube] module">
         <option value="1">None</option>
         <option value="2">1</option>
         <option value="3">2</option>
         <option value="4">3</option>
         <option value="5">4</option>
         <option value="6">5</option>
         <option value="7">6</option>
         <option value="8">7</option>
         <option value="9">8</option>
         <option value="10">9</option>
         <option value="11">10</option>
         <option value="12">11</option>
         <option value="13">12</option>
      </param>

I do not believe you can display images on the Parameters page (I assume you mean the plugin editor page?)

Also, I do not know what you mean by spaces between each option. Can you take a screen picture of what you are looking at - and where you want the space?

Thanks!
Amy :)

MiCCAS -

I apologize for the delay! Use the type="list" for that purpose.

Code: Select all

      
<param name="namegoeshere" type="list" default="1" label="Goes Here" description="Describe it">
      <option value="0">No</option>
      <option value="1">Yes</option>
</param>


We added about 20 cool coding tasks. When this is complete and signed off, you can take another. How are you doing? Are you ready for a review?

Thanks!
Amy :)

Michael -

It looks good. Pretty cool being able to place a [youtube] Video selection process and player on your site. People will enjoy this.

Consider adding in Internationalization. It's not too difficult.

I think you are very close. Thanks for your contributions to the community.

Amy :)

FINAL REVIEW: Please try this out and provide your feedback.

Cool little module.

One of the limitations I guess is that the results show in the widget directly. Having the results display in mainbody would be neater, but aside from that, nice work.

Unfortunately it's a limitation of the Google code itself, which is what it utilizes. I'm glad you had no major issues, and liked it :)

Looks like people are happy with it, I will begin converting more over at the end of this week (not through the GHOP contest though - still waiting for my final review :) )

MiCCAS -

I am so very, very, very sorry that your entry sat there for so long without finalization.

Your Internationalization improvements are much appreciated. This will be a fun module for people to add to their sites.

Thank you for your contributions to the Joomla! community!

Amy :)
