collective.easyslider 1.3.0

The product will allow you to apply an easyslider to any page with the ability to create each slide using a WYSIWYG editor. It also provides a slider view for Folders and Collections.

Latest Version: 1.4.1

Introduction
============
This product allows you to easily add an easySlider content rotator to any page on a plone site using a WYSIWYG editor to design each slide.

How-to
------
On a page, click actions -> Add Slider.  It should bring you to a slider settings page where you can modify different aspects of the slider and add/remove slides using a WYSWGY editor.  Keep in mind that the slides are fixed width so you need to specify the size you want.  Then you'll want to start adding your slides.  To do this just click ``add new slide`` near the bottom of the page.  Once you've finished adding slides and re-ordering slides, click ``save`` and you should see the slider on your page now.

You can also select a slider view for Folder and Collection content types.  Then the slider settings for that page will include settings to limit the amount of slides to have and to limit the type of slides used.

Examples
--------
Examples of this being used in the wild.

* http://www.chicagohistory.org
* http://www.reamp.org
* http://www.rehabpro.org
* http://swca.org/

Installation
------------
* add collective.easyslider to your eggs and zcml sections
* re-run buildout
* install the product like you would any other Plone product

Uninstall
---------
* Uninstall like normal
* go to portal_setup in the zmi, click the 'import' tab, select "collective.easyslider uninstall" and click the "Import all steps" button at the bottom to perform clean up.


Easy Template Integration
-------------------------

If you'd like to add dynamic content to your slides, add collective.easytemplate
to your eggs section in buildout, re-run buildout and restart your installation.
Then in the slider settings make sure you enable Easy Template.

You can also render sliders in a Easy Template. The syntax is:

    {{ slider("../front-page") }}

And for the sliderview

    {{ sliderview("../a-collection") }}


Rendering Slider in Templates
-----------------------------

You can also easily render your slider in a page template
if you'd like even more control over how it is displayed:

    <tal:slider tal:content="structure context/../front-page/@@slider_util/render_inline" />

And for the sliderview

    <tal:slider tal:content="structure context/../front-page/@@slider_util/render_sliderview_inline" />

  [davidjb]
- Fix failing test under Plone 3.
  [davidjb]
- Remove bottom border for navigation bullets under <= IE6.
  [davidjb]
- Allow active navigation bullets to change on slide transition under new
  *Navigation Bullets* layout.
  [davidjb]
- Added a new layout with bullets.
  [espenmn]
- Ensure slider JS selects only ``li`` elements that are slides. This fixes
  transition problems when lists are within slides.
  [davidjb]
- Fix IE 5/6 display issue with slider container showing overflow.
  [davidjb]
- Return an error if the user's attempt to move/remove a slide fails.
  This prevents unnecessary AJAX calls from the client to reload slides.
  [davidjb]
- Prevent index out of range error when attempting to move a slide down
  if that slide is already at the end.
  [davidjb]
- Simplify CSS for settings page as existing slider styles are now applicable.
  [davidjb]
- Change slider settings page to ensure that ``li`` slide elements are
  correctly wrapped in a ``ul`` by mimicking actual slider structures.  This
  fixes settings page issues under IE 6 and 7 by ensuring the page produces
  valid list markup.
  [davidjb]
- Add CSS class selectors for slider and slider containers rather than just
  ID-based selectors. This allows multiple slider structures on the same page
  (eg the settings page). Slider display templates continue to use ID-based
  structures.
  [davidjb]
- Style ``li`` elements on the Slider Settings page using specific class to
  avoid affecting lists within slides.
  [davidjb]
- Ensure ``ul`` elements within slides don't get styled by default.
  [davidjb]


0.8.0b1 ~ 2011-11-20
--------------------

- Add 'Crossfade' effect to the slider. This option transitions slides into
  each other with a crossfading effect, which contrasts with the standard
  fade which fades out a slide before fading the next one in. Customise the
  relevant CSS if you need custom z-indexes.
  [davidjb]

- Prevent big arrow buttons from having a bottom border. This prevents a
  conflict with the default Sunburst theme in Plone 4.1+.
