With this add-on you can easily add slider to each category of forums in your xenforo. Each category can be fully customize too.
When you manually upload images for slider, you will have multiple new options that you can manually set them:
- Maximum Number of Images per Slide
- Images of the past X days
- Activate Lightbox
- Slider type
- Simple (Unsupported!)
- BX Slider
- Style Properties (for each of sliders)
- 2 ways of adding images to slider
- Uploading images manually
- Grab Images from Post Attachments
- (these 2 can be used together as well)
- Override Slider Settings per category (For BX Slider)
A little explanation (because I will only support BX Slider, so in this example we will go with it):
- Content ID
- Content Type
- Core (default)
- Official Add-ons
- Resource Category
- Media Category
- Bob's add-ons
- AMS (Article Management System) Article
- AMS (Article Management System) Article Category
- UBS (Users Blogs System) Blog Entry
- UBS (Users Blogs System) Blog
- UBS (Users Blogs System) Blog Cateogry
- SC (Showcase) Item
- SC (Showcase) Category
- Nobita's Social Group
- Group Event
- Group Wall Post
- Group Category
- Custom URL
Note: I'm not a professional developer and its not my job. I did it because we needed a news ticker (and also I'm interested in coding). So:
- First you go to add-on's options and then choose BX Slider as slider
- Then if you want, you will also check "Activate Lightbox". With this activated, when user click on the image of slider, it will open it in lightbox with full size, and in order to go to target page, user must click on the title you set.
- Then you go to BX Slider tab and set default settings for slider (I set standard values as default. So if you don't need, then don't change them) Anyway, in each categories slider you can override these default settings too.
- Now go to node Tree page and edit any category you want and go to Advance Options tab and set the appropriate values as needed.
- I don't promise to update it regularly
- But because we use it in our own site too, so all reported bugs will be fixed asap.
- And also good suggestions will be implemented when finding free time to do (but try to do them asap. I don't promise, but I'll try).
- Because of this, I set its license as Lifetime.
- Donations are always welcome. If you want to do so, you can start conversation with me.
Hope to be useful and you enjoy this add-on. If you like this add-on, don't forget to support it by your reviews on xenforo.
