Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] ike_slideshow

Thanks, Martin.

While thumbnails will likely be added in the next release, I doubt auto-play will actually be implemented. The premise of the plugin is simple functionality, not flashy presentation. There are other plugins that accomplish slideshows with flare (aro_slideshow, as Martin pointed out).

jstubbs: I haven’t forgotten… heh. That’s next on my list.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] ike_slideshow

thanks for the suggestions Martin, and for the update information Ikebowen.
Ikebowen, if you say

The premise of the plugin is simple functionality…

Any plans to implement that linked image list?
Seems to be the most straightforward way to display information and get there imo.

If there are no such plans, i have not managed to find any gallery plugin that has this feature,
any hints are greatly appreciated.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] ike_slideshow

Yep, twas what I mean by ‘thumbnails’; apologies for not making that more clear. That’ll be in the next release as well.

To clarify: ‘simple functionality’ merely means that I don’t want this plugin to become… focused on style of presentation, if you will. That said, versatility has been a goal since modes were defined. :) I’ll keep developing this plugin, no worries, and feature requests are still encouraged.

Cheers -

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] ike_slideshow

As is, is there a way to use the ike_slideshow javascript function to show to a specific image, instead of just moving forward and back?

Thanks!

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] ike_slideshow

Given that movement is step-based (e.g. step by -1 or 1 for backwards or forwards), I’m afraid not. A request has been made for small image thumbnails linking to images within the slideshow – is this along the lines of what you are thinking?

Thanks for the quick reply.

That’s exactly it. I already modified the plugin to show the thumbnails, but the navigation for displaying the specific image is where I’m stuck.

Thanks, again.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] ike_slideshow

The easiest thing to do would, I think, be to assign each li within div.ike_slideshow an id reflecting the image id – image 123 might be contained within li#ike-slideshow-image-123. Clicking on thumbnail 123 could call ike_slideshow(hash,123), and because 123!=-1&&123!=1 (would break for image #1, yes), all li’s are set to display:none; with #ike-slideshow-image-123 being set to display:block.

… Hopefully that made sense. I’ll be building something along those lines into the next release, but hopefully it’ll be cleaner than the above. :)

2. is it possible to bring the prev/next-link above the picture or maybe even right beside of it?

That’s what I would really love too. I’ve been looking inside the code, but it doesn’t seem that easy to accomplish.
Could this option be implemented please?

BTW thanks for this simple yet beautiful plugin.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] ike_slideshow

On the list – thank you for your input.

A question for those of you who use this plugin: how would you feel about having it ported to jQuery, the javascript library packaged in with Textpattern? (As far as you the user are concerned, this would merely involve an additional script reference to call in the library.) I don’t have any immediate plans to do this, but I might as scope out the possibility.

Cheers -
