Showtime or other slideshow for CMSMS 2.0

Post by urheat »

It seems that one of the best modules - Showtime - doesn't work with CMSMS 2.0.

Is there any other slideshow/slider modules available or maybe soon to be released for 2.0?

Not that I know of.

We're hoping that Showtime will be updated to become 2.0 compatible:

What function of Showtime do you need?

There's a CMSMS-2 ready image related module named Gallery ;). The sliding part could be done only by right templating (including scripts and so on). Ask Google for javascript sliders and modify the templates.

By the way ... a gallery could be done too only with some lines of Smarty ;). No module needed.

Code: Select all

{assign var='slider' value='uploads/images/slider/*.jpg'|glob} 
{foreach from=$slider item='one' name=oneitem}
<div><img src="{root_url}/{$one}" width="800" height="600" alt="" /></div>
{/foreach}

Thanks for the idea chandra!

Maybe I'll do that, but I would prefer gallery for gallery usage and Showtime for sliders and such. It's also simplier for editors.

Is it possible that CMSMS development team could contact module developers, whose modules are the most downloaded/used?

I never used showtime module so don't know about all the features. But wouldn't any 'List' like module suit your needs?

E.g. http://dev.cmsmadesimple.org/projects/lise

Each slide would be an item with it's own properties. Summary template to output those to webpage. That's the way I 'do' sliders most of the times.

Thanks for the tip Velden!

This could be done. But I would still prefer Showtime. It is/was widely used and for example I have it installed almost in every site. So updating those sites to 2.0 would be a lot easier for us developers and for the clients if we would have the same modules.

And as a developer. I possible could manage code a template using Lise, but still I would prefer using right tools for right job and do less customizing.

So please could you at least consider as a dev team member contacting Showtime developer or that someone could create Showtime-like module? Cause I think that this can be one reason for you to loose developers (sliders are so core thing in websites).

I know a Dutch forummember contacted Pedrosken a few days ago about the module. Haven't heard anything back yet...

Think as developer you should be fascinated by LISE / ListIt universe ... one module for ALL (most) jobs :D. There are a lot modules for advanced use of ListIt.

Yep I did. Pedrosken replied he has no time to make this module Showtime/Nivoslider compatible with cmsms 2.x

I agree with Urheat's arguments to have it work again, would be so much easier, also for our clients to work with.
Above that, it's one of the very few really 'responsive' sliders for cms-ms!

Would be só nice if somebody else of the module-developpers-team could take this last aspect (compatibility with version 2.x) over from him,
only if he/pedrosken agrees ofcourse !

Please, help to save this valuable Module!!!

It's the template that makes it responsive. Any other module that allows you create your own template should be able to generate a responsive slider.

Would be great if you do so too, Rolf!
Might help more from a colleague-developper than a question from 'simple' users like myself.. ;)

Haven't heard anything from Pedrosken yet.

I can and will help you all with fixing the Showtime module but only if Peter also wants me too. I won't fork Showtime and be responsible for the module the next years... Don't use the module myself, so nothing to win for me...
