The plugin already comes with 2 pre-built template layouts and using MVC overrides you can create your own by simply copying one of the pre-built and modifying the HTML and/or CSS.
You can use the plugin's tags in any component, module or plugin that supports 'content plugin' parsing. Aside the default Joomla! article system, you can use for example the plugin in the popular K2 content extension, in Virtuemart, inside the 'Custom HTML' module etc.
=== SCREENSHOTS ===
See screenshots of the 2 pre-built template layouts here in the plugin's description page: http://www.joomlaworks.net/extensions/free-premium/tabs-sliders-for-articles-plugin
=== COMPATIBILITY ===
The plugin has been tested on all modern browsers, including IE7 or higher. It should degrade gracefully in IE6.
It's compatible with Joomla! version 1.5 to 2.5.
Joomla!'s Mootools is required as it's used by the plugin's extremely lightweight sliders script.
=== PERFORMANCE ===
The plugin adds only a few KBs overall to your site.
It also uses the Joomla! API to attach 1 JS and 1 CSS file to the document . This means the plugin will have no problem being used in combination with other "performance" plugins which compress JS and/or CSS files on your site.
I worked a little on .css, making the titles align center (on slides) and content align left. I would also get rid of the yellow star in the left, doesn't look very proffessional.
All the best (pardon my bad English)!
But using tables helps.
This plugin looks ok but it gives many troubles. It changes on different browsers and indeed does funny things you don't want it to do.
The support is also crap! They do anwser questions on their forum but only the simple ones. Others are left for dead.
If you design stable company websites don't use this plugin. Maybe when you... Naahhh just look for something better and skip this one!
Positive: I like their rotating banners they are nice!
Anyway thanks for the great extension!. Five Stars!!!.
I only have one problem: after publising the plugin, it was written an error in the upper part of the content area (but the plugin worked good!). I solved this by including the following code in line 15 in file jwts.php
(cheers and sorry for my bad english)
Only use plain text when pasting into your editor when using it, and don't try to use the headings etc hat are pre formated for your template, if you want to dress up text just use the paragraph text option and then use bold, colours etc.
This should save you a bit of hassle with browser compatibility, and display errors.
Otherwise works great,thanks for an elegant way to display content.
- Proper display of tabs and slides differs between browsers and browser versions.
- And depends also on the particular template you're using.
- Some of the slides open only half way for some users: I'm not sure why.
- I still haven't found the right way to make all tabs the same 100% width.
Basically my advice would be: try it, it's free! Make sure you test it in all different browsers. Don't hope for any support if you want to customize.
This was to replace another extension that was easy to code but IE7 would not work with - another "IE cannot open this website - operation aborted".
I come back to Joomlaworks again and again! - I have used lots of their extensions both paid for and free. I
I have never ever been let down. That is a lot to say but it is true with me.
The coding for this plugin is so so easy and it just works - God Bless Joomlaworks - it works
