Dynamic display block themes

Information

To make it possible to give different layouts to your slideshows an advanced Dynamic display block slideshow uses template files, Cascading style sheets and images. The combination of the template, CSS and images is called a Dynamic display block theme or ddblock theme.

ddblock theme directory structure

A ddblock theme has the following directory structure:

custom/
--modules/
----ddblock/
------ddblock-cycle-block-content.tpl.php
------ddblock-cycle-block-content-[ddblock-theme-name].tpl.php
------ddblock-cycle-pager-content.tpl.php
------ddblock-cycle-pager-content-[ddblock-theme-name].tpl.php
------images/                          
------[ddblock-theme_name]/
--------[ddblock-theme-name].css   
--------images/        

E.g. for the upright10 and chromatic-blue20l ddblock themes it would look like this:

custom/
--modules/
----ddblock/
------ddblock-cycle-block-content.tpl.php
------ddblock-cycle-block-content-chromatic-blue20l.tpl.php
------ddblock-cycle-block-content-upright10.tpl.php
------ddblock-cycle-pager-content.tpl.php
------ddblock-cycle-pager-content-chromatic-blue20l.tpl.php
------ddblock-cycle-pager-content-upright10.tpl.php
------images/
------chromatic-blue20l/
--------chromatic-blue20l.css
--------images/
------upright10/
--------upright10.css
--------images/

Installation

  1. Download the Dynamic display block theme package upright10-50.zip (RC6) from the Download page.
  2. Extract the zip file to a temporary directory.
  3. Copy the custom directory with all sub directories to the theme directory of the theme you use,which is probably at sites/all/themes/[YOUR_THEME_NAME]/. If you use the garland theme this would be sites/all/themes/garland/.

Note: Other free themes can also be downloaded from http://ddblock.myalbums.biz/download, we will periodically donate more ddblock theme via our Sunday - Donation day!!!, Commercial themes can be seen and purchased form http://themes.myalbus.biz

Important Note: For MAC and Linux users, check the permissions of the directories and theme files of the ddblock themes on filesystem level. They need to be readable by Drupal, other wise you get error messages like:

warning: include(./themes/[***themename***]/custom/modules/ddblock/ddblock-cycle-pager-content.tpl.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/drupal614/includes/theme.inc on line 1020.
