Camera Slideshow (FREE)

This extension is based on Manuel Masia's Camera Slideshow. An extremely versatile slide show that allows multiple customisations to both the look and feel as well as the functionality. Options to display a pie loader or bar, change pie or bar positions, thumbnail positions, 24 transition effects and a random option, 10 overlay images, 28 different skins for controls, full screen or normal, captions and full styling capability. And that just scratches the surface!!!



PLEASE take the time to read this help file before you launch into this extension.

Demo available from my demo site. Extension available from the main WWB extension site and the demo site. See links in signature.

Oops indeed. I must have dragged the .xwb file into the zip file at some stage. I've removed it now. But those that have it are welcome - if anyone wants the 3 xsl files that go with it just let me know.

infos,

Well if you want some help with it you'll have to provide just a little bit more information old chap. Might be a good start if you read the help file too.

Add code? The extension doesn't require you to add anything other than complete the relevent properties. So I assume you mean that you had NOT entered some values in one or more of the properties. I'm not splitting hairs but it's important for other readers of this thread to not get the impression that they need to 'add code'.....that would defeat th whole point of extensions.

yes, I added this:

<script type="text/javascript">
jQuery(function(){
jQuery('#camera_wrap_1').camera({
});
});
</script>

your extension does not generate automatically this piece of code which is needed in order to work correctly

cheers,

I beg to differ. And may I add I am not that dumb to release an extension that didn't use key code to make it work.

There is an xsl file used in the extension specifically to cater for different conditions:-

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0">
<xsl:template match='/'>
<xsl:for-each select="DATASET/ITEM">

<!-- Normal -->
<xsl:if test="SELECTASIZE = 'Normal'"> <!-- write html for Normal size -->
<style type="text/css">
.fluid_container {margin: 0 auto;}
$iframestyles$
</style>

<script type="text/javascript">
jQuery(function(){
     jQuery('#camera_wrap_1').camera({
     });
});
</script>
</xsl:if>

<!-- Fullscreen -->
<xsl:if test="SELECTASIZE = 'Fullscreen'"> <!-- write html for Fullscreen -->
        <xsl:choose>
             <xsl:when test="CAPTIONSORTHUMBS = 'Captions'"> <!-- write for captions -->
<style type="text/css">
.fluid_container {bottom: 0;left: 0;position: fixed;right: 0;top: 0;z-index: 0;}
#camera_wrap_1 {bottom: 0;left: 0;margin-bottom: 0!important;position: fixed;right: 0;top: 0;}
$iframestyles$
</style>

<script type="text/javascript">
jQuery(function(){
     jQuery('#camera_wrap_1').camera({
     height: 'auto'
     });
});
</script>
             </xsl:when>
        <xsl:otherwise> <!-- write for thumbs -->
<style type="text/css">
.fluid_container {bottom: 0;left: 0;position: fixed;right: 0;top: 0;z-index: 0;}
#camera_wrap_1 {bottom: 0;left: 0;margin-bottom: 0!important;position: fixed;right: 0;top: 0;}
.camera_thumbs {margin-top: -100px;position: relative;z-index: 1;}
<xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes">.camera_caption > div {display:none;}</xsl:text>
$iframestyles$
</style>

<script type="text/javascript">
jQuery(function(){
     jQuery('#camera_wrap_1').camera({
     height: 'auto'
     });
});
</script>
        </xsl:otherwise>
    </xsl:choose>
</xsl:if>

</xsl:for-each>
</xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>
So if you select Normal or Fullsize you get different code.

Therefore in what circumstances did you have to manually add this code? I would like to see your project file (just that page) to identify what you did that caused the extension not to write the correct code.
