The simplest most basic news slider using the cycle script...

In the <head> of page template...

<__script__ type="text/javascript" src="uploads/jq/jquery162.js"></__script>
<__script__ type="text/javascript" src="uploads/jq/cycle.js"></__script>
<__script__ type="text/javascript">{literal}
$(document).ready(function() {
$('#newsslider').cycle({
fx: 'scrollUp'
});
});{/literal}
</__script>

News Summary template...

<!-- Start News Display Template -->
**********************
<div id='newsslider'>
{foreach from=$items item=entry}
<div class="NewsSummary">

********** normal news calls******************

</div>
{/foreach}
</div>
<!-- End News Display Template -->

See it here...

Hi Dr.CSS,

Thanks for sharing, seems great!
I'm looking forward to testing the various effects for fun but i guess the "cleanest" one to use will indeed be the scrollUp one :)

Greetings,
Manuel

Hi Dr. CSS,

Great idea! I was able to convert it to make a more useful quotes scroller.

Thank you for sharing!!!

I can't seem to find the correct line of code in the jQuery to slow the scrolling speed down. Can anyone assist?

Thanks!

Hi Rolf,

Yes, I did look here and tried several modifications of the "Speed" and "Timeout" functions without viewing any change to the scrolling speed.

\$1:
    speed:         1000,  // speed of the transition (any valid fx speed value)
    speedIn:       null,  // speed of the 'in' transition
    speedOut:      null,  // speed of the 'out' transition
    startingSlide: 0,     // zero-based index of the first slide to be displayed
    sync:          1,     // true if in/out transitions should occur simultaneously
    timeout:       4000,  // milliseconds between slide transitions (0 to disable auto advance)


I've also tried changing it here:
\$1:
<__script__ type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7.2/jquery.min.js"></__script>
<__script__ type="text/javascript" src="uploads/jq/cycle.js"></__script>
<__script__ type="text/javascript">{literal}
$(document).ready(function() {
$('#newsslider').cycle({
fx: 'scrollUp'
});
});{/literal}
</__script>


as shown in the example located here: http://jquery.malsup.com/cycle/begin.html

I believe it's here but changing timeout: to 12000 caused no change in the scrolling speed. Any ideas?

Just checked, I use "timeout" for timing the time to display.

Post subject:  Re: Simple News Slider

Thanks for the feedback Rolf. I have changed the "timeout" multiple times now with apparently no effect on the scrolling speed.

On the malsup forum it was suggested to try the "easing". I am now wondering if my problem is caused due to using the Showtime module and the Cycle JQuery on the same page. Perhaps they are interfering with each other.

Thanks again for your response. It is appreciated!

Ok, found the source of the problem. I blocked out the Showtime module and then the scrolling functioned correctly using the "timeout" parameter.

Now I have to learn how to get them both to work on the same page.
