If it is of any use, Tab Hack for Content is now updated for Content 0.6. Uses accessible HTML + CSS and can be used for articles and blocks.

and see my example here:

With that you can easily populate the ajax tabbed widget with content from any XOOPS block. It works great.


Is this the one you're talking about?

That one would work... I used this one:
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/ajaxtabscontent/index.htm

I liked this one's shade .gifs that can be customized, the demo.htm that can be used for development, and then it can be pasted right into your content, the .css, etc.

Good I like it better as well, but to be honest I would have used the one you recommended. I'm so far behind on this project now.

I noticed your scroll images in the right lower corner. I need something like that, but I'm not thinking of using in files from a Gallery/MySql db. I'm just thinking of a scroll with a small number of pics, possibly about six jpgs in a folder on the site (not in anything xoops)

I'm using the Marquee mod on one site with scrolling text, but I haven't read where it will work with code.


* Since I posted this I found one on the dynamic site.

Anyway, I appreciate very much your help and hope I can return in kind soon.

Thank you

Here is the code for those scrolling images:

I have marquee, but those images run through a borderless iframe in a custom block, and a single page of dhtml.

I am going to post that code in a minute... But that gives me an idea... I am going to attempt to use the script that makes those images scroll as an optional add-on to the tabbed content pages.... Then any block content will scroll in the tabbed area.

It MIGHT work.


The fun part about that is... you can provide access to a great deal more content. Movement also is a great deal of appeals to users. Even more fun if it could marquee text or images.

I'm presently working on a site where the site owner has all the cities his company serves in a marquee box, and a list of satisfied customers in another. He believes it gives him an edge because he isn't doing the standard customer referrals thing. He's just telling them of large numbers of satisfied customers. Funny... he thinks they're satisfied.


I think having all those cities and customer names may be a some help with search engine placement.

My first try at that didn't work. I think the javascript would have to be a seperate page. I would love to make the content scroll without having to write plugins for marquee. I will keep trying.

Well, with the content block .php's I posted and this script you can have a slideshow of blocks:

http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/featuredcontentslider.htm

And combine the content .php's created for the tabbed widget with this and you can create a marquee from any block on your site.
