  • Big disappointment, very not user friendly system of vb cloud

    Content Slider is like hell, I totally have no control of slider show???? what the hell
    When I asked in this forum, just show me some code than problem solved?!
    Adding Widget with facebook, youtube, I have to go to the other site to do it!!!????
    So disappointed and regret to tried vb 5 and vb cloud. Compare to WP, vB are so much harder for many way
    The definition of teaching video is like 60's quality, don't advertise the most powerful forum software, shame!

    Hello

    There are various different ways to put Facebook, Google etc buttons on a site, the method Wayne described to you relates to one simple way to add share links. There is no single fixed way and it will always involve some third party code to some degree.

    Content Slider - yes to some degree you do have control of it, via what are effectively search strings. Search srtrings are perhaps less user-friendly but more powerful. What is it you want the content slider to show?

      This is the question I've asked before

      Just tried Content Slider, how you control it??? In my Home page, I put code({"date":{"from":"30"},"type":["vBForum_Gallery"],"sort":{"created":"desc"}}) in Content Slider
      It shows Blog's picture as background, but the first picture in forum not showing......only topics and content.
      If I want to setup a Content Slider for my sub-forum and I want the Content Slider only shows the content within sub-forum, change font and color or showing position) so how do I do that?
      Little bit disappointing in Content Slider, I thought I don't have to deal with codes anymore, this is the main reason I change to vB Clound

      But the reply wasn't clear at all............

      All I want is the content slider showing the latest topic with first picture. also I want to change the font and color and showing position.
      But I have read all of the post, there is no guide or example to learn.......

      Sorry for the languages, I have been learning day by day build the forum, it drives me crazy.

        Ok...this string should allow a content slider to return only Gallery images (images uploaded via the Camera icon), in a specific forum, within the past 30 days:

        Code:
        {"channel":[xxx],"date":{"from":"30"},"type":["vBForum_Gallery"],"sort":{"created":"desc"}}
        You need to replace xxx with the node id of the forum you want it to pull from. (This doesn't necessarily need to be the forum the content slider has been placed in, if you don't need it to be, it can pull from anywhere you tell it to).

        To find the node id of a forum, go to AdminCP > Channel Management > Channel Manager, they are all listed there next to the forum names.

          Thank you so much Mark.B!!!!!!, but still, somehow the first picture of the topic(in the forum) still not showing, only show the first pictures in article or blog's.
          Also, the words or font not using the whole position, could you teach me how to use the whole block? Now is little bit right, and can I control it only showing topics?
          Thank you once again, almost give up on my forum, actually this is my dream, also running with my wife, that is why coding freak us out.

                It's designed to highlight featured threads with images in them, so the theory is, the site owner / admins picks five relevant topics that have an image, he then 'features'' those topics. The content slider then advertises those topics, using the image from each topic as a background.

                Of course, as seen in this thread, you can play around with the string and make it look for other stuff.

                It can also advertise topics without images, it then uses a standard background image, which still works but doesn't look as good.

                My demo site has a content slider working in the default manner: http://www.talknewsuk.com

                  It doesn't have to be limited to just the featured topics. You can display any post by modifying the JSON search criteria. You could display latest posts in it if you want.
