Rolling Jpeg banner

Is there any possibility for the Yola team to create a "rolling Banner" widget. So that a person could import jpeg's of events which would automatically scroll while people are browsing the page. It needs to be able to accommodate any aspect ratio jpeg. Would it also be possible for there to be links attached to the jpegs, so that when people click on a particular jpeg it will send them to a new page, registration, etc. I hope this makes sense. Thanks. Allan

Hello Allan,

It's a good suggestion and probably would need to accommodate many possibilities. It's probably more realistic to do this addition ourselves with something like a "slider" facility of which there are several. No one single slider has everything but there are some that do offer a lot, including links etc.

There are also mini-facilities based on the sliding door effect where individual images within a stack of images are linked to where-ever and hovering rolls one image back to allow a pre-view or explanation of the link before making the click to commitment.

Gop, hi there, I use some on other sites, but they have a lot of coding with them and linking. Do you have a link for something not taking up a lot of code? Just picking your brain a little - hope you don't mind?

BXSLIDER doesn't have much coding to do in the setup. It does take a bit of concentration for the styling however. It's really the smoothest most elegant in appearance of the sliders as yet i think.

I'll have to get back to you with the threads on this one. (Wouldn't a Wiki be great! on this forum!)

@Allan,

Thanks Allan,

Sounds like a good one to check with.

You need to wrap any code in < code > tags as explained in "(some HTML allowed)" link at the top line of any Reply to This Topic

Hi Gop , thanks for this. I use the Wow slider (as Allan has mentioned below.) Had it for a few years now. Just wondered (as being lazy) if there was something with a 'little smaller' coding in. Gop again thanks for great help all the time.

PS... And also to Allan,
I bought the Wow slider (a while ago) and it is great. Do have it now on Yola as banner on updated site, the new one just out is better - well worth the purchasing of it - for mobile use. cu3ox is also good.
thank you for your assistance J.
PS. reason I am including this with Gop's is that on my PC can't get into the comment box for yourself. it is 'greyed' out. I am having hiccups with my machine and some things in Yola!
thk u Allan. J

Go checkout WOWSlider. It is real easy to use and has great transitions and displays.
All you have to do is set up the slides you want in the WOWSlider program.
http://wowslider.com/wowslider-free-s...

Publish it to a folder on your PC.
Open the Index HTML in .txt
Copy the HTML code and paste it into a HTML wigdet.
Now you need to upload every image that is in your slide show into Yola
Also upload the 'jquery', 'script', and 'style' jscript files into Yola
Your last step will be to change the HTML coding for the location of your images and jscripts.
(in other words, make sure that your HTML code is reading the new location of images and jscripts in Yola)
e.g.

THE JSCRIPTS:

THE IMAGES:

  • And there you go. You have an awesome rolling banner.
    The Free version of WOWSlider unfortunately has a watermark in the bottom right corner. But hey... you get an awesome roller.
    Alternatively you can buy it to get rid of the watermark.

    Hope this helps.
