Pager Settings


theme setup ?

I followed the README file bundled with the zip, but
When setting "Custom template" to "chromatic-blue40l"
It's written that:
> Custom template for themable output. Template name will become:
> views-slideshow-ddblock-cycle-block-content-[TEMPLATENAME].tpl.php
But the zip file does not contains such files.

Moreover, "Theme: Information" display:
> Display output: views-view.tpl.php, views-view--carrousel.tpl.php, views-view--.tpl.php, views-view--default.tpl.php, views-view--carrousel--default.tpl.php
[ notice the (wrong) double-dashes ]

what's wrong ?

trimming tags

i created a custom template to create slideshow(with number pager)... the code some how manage to trim down some tags...

<div class="slides">
<!-- block content. -->
	<div id="ddblock-<?php print $delta; ?>" class="ddblock-contents clear-block" style="visibility:hidden">
	  <?php if (($pager == 'number-pager')): ?>
	   <!-- number pager. -->
	   <div id="ddblock-<?php print $pager ."-". $delta ?>" class="ddblock-<?php print $pager ?> ddblock-pager clear-block" style="height: <?php print $pager_height ?>px; width:<?php print $pager_width ?>px;">
	  <?php endif; ?>  
	  <!-- content -->
	  <?php if ($output_type == 'content_array') : ?>
	   <div class="ddblock-container"> 
		<?php foreach ($content as $item): ?>
		 <?php print($item); ?>
		<?php endforeach; ?>
	  <?php endif; ?>

but im having hard time trimming the code bellow

<div class="ddblock-container"> 
  <div class="views-row views-row-1 views-row-odd views-row-first">
	...leave some code between these tags...
  <div class="views-row views-row-2 views-row-even">... </div>
  <div class="views-row views-row-3 views-row-odd">...</div>
  <div class="views-row views-row-4 views-row-even views-row-last">...</div>

the code above... is basically coming from:

<?php if ($output_type == 'content_array') : ?>
	<div class="ddblock-container"> 
	   <?php foreach ($content as $item): ?>
		 <?php print($item); ?>
	   <?php endforeach; ?>
<?php endif; ?>

can anyone help how can i remove the following tags but retain key values between views-rows div's:

<div class="ddblock-container"> 
  <div class="views-row views-row-1 views-row-odd views-row-first">
	BUT... leave some code between these tags...

thanks in advanced...


Re: trimming tags

From what I understand, you want to have a minimum amount of HTML tags to make the slideshow work.

We developed the module templates with more additional divs and classes, so styling options are in place, and support for more browsers (IE) can be styled.

Due to time constraints we can not help you with your case and other CSS and theme related issues (would cost to much free time to give support for all customizations of ddblock themes)

You can try more general Drupal forums to ask your questions.
We do paid services for customization.

thanks admin... anyway the

thanks admin... anyway the module is working fine... i was just hoping if theres an available solution to this... thanks again...

No Image Pager option

I have installed the latest rc version but I cannot see the "Image Pager" as an option.

The drop down shows:
- Number Pager
- Prev Next Pager
- Custom Pager

How can I access the Image Pager?

Re: No Image Pager option

A basic slideshow can have an image pager, in an advanced slideshow it's always a custom pager.

Hope this answers your question, please let me know.

How to "Image pager"?

Hi, I would like my ddblock to behave like the example above for "Image pager" but without the big image appearing at the bottom of the thumbnails. How can I do that?

I have 6 images in my ddblock and I have configured it as follows:

Content container: overflow hidden yes, size 282x614
Image settings: size 150x150
Transition effect: fade
Use Pager: yes
Pager settings: Image pager, size 282x614

What I get is one row of 6 thumbnails (very small, not 150x150), where images are shown with fading effect only in the first thumbnail and the big picture at the bottom sometimes appears and sometime doesn't.

How can I display images in all thumbnails sized 150x150 and remove the big pic at the bottom completely?

Thank you.

Re: How to "Image pager"?

The tiny thumbnail issue you can solve with setting the content container to: content container to: .ddblock-container img (don't forget the dot in front of ddblock-container img) in the configuration page.

(It's a known issue, made a FAQ Troubleshoot questions for this)

To (ab)use the module to only show the pager and not the slides you could add in your stylesheet: .ddblock-container img{visibility:hidden} to hide the slider images.

Pictures in your slides can now be 150x150. If you don't use imagecache the same image will be used for the pager-items.

If you use imagecache separate images are used for slider images and pager images.

Hope this helps you further, please let me know.
Do you have a link to see the results?

How to "Number pager"


I want do numbered page style, for users change content. How to this?

Re: How to "Number pager"

In the configuration page of a dynamic display block you have a pager setting. Enable the checkbox Use pager and select the pager you prefer.

You can read more in the tutorials on this site about the settings of the dynamic display block module.

Hope this helps your further. Please let me know.

Image pager

Everything works greate except that image pager doesnt show up on the right side.
Im using gradient-blue30p theme.
Everything is set as it should be i suppose.
Please help.

Re: Image pager

Gradient blue30p does not support a pager at the right side.

The p (portrait themes) have a flexible pager at the top and the bottom.
The l (landscape themes) have a flexible pager at the left and right.

Hope this helps you further.

DDBlock + Galleria?


I was wondering if we can use DDBlock ang Galleria so that we can create scrolls for the gallery.
Right now I am using jCarousel + Galleria on a client's website

But I might need help of DDBlock and Galleria in my next project.

Re: DDblock + Galleria

I am sure this can be done. We made some galleries with slideshows using the dynamic display block module and taxonomies, but with a module like Galleria it also should be possible.
Just contact me via the contact form.
