Great plugin. Very easy to configure and get going. 

A few questions:

1. I notice on your screen shots that the title of the featured entry appeared below the thumbnail. I'm not seeing that feature, but perhaps I missed it.

2. The images don't appear to be cropping when creating a thumbnail but rather distorting or stretching to fit. Is that expected behavior?

​Hi,

1. It's "Show Title in content", you can see it in Slider's setting -> Basic tab

2. I'm finding a solution for croping images on the fly.

​Thanks for the prompt reply. So I think there is an error in the code. Take a look at what is being spit out. Notice the title floating there:

 

Screen_Shot_2015-03-26_at_11.00.38_AM.th

​You can fix this issue, open \applications\featuredcontent\sources\Slider\Slider.php

Find (line 473)

'title'  => $row->field_1,

Replace with

'title'  => $row->_title,

Save :cheer:

Currently getting the following types of errors when I implement this block into the page:


Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 261900 bytes) in /home/teamlega/public_html/system/Patterns/ActiveRecord.php on line 586

Only happens with this application. Only happens when I implement the block. :/

This error message is due to the column "current_appcomponent" is null. Try to run this sql to fix

ALTER TABLE core_sessions CHANGE current_appcomponent current_appcomponent VARCHAR(100) NOT NULL DEFAULT '';

Or go to your ACP -> System -> Support -> choose "Something isn't working correctly" and click Continue to check the sql error and fix automatically

Which IPS RC version are you using? Can you give me acp access to take a look

​rc7. the latest i believe. I got the error again after doing the "something now working" fix you suggested. Happened immediately. All other apps/blocks work fine tested.

 

I sent you ACP creds.

Can this pull the latest xx articles from multiple databases?

For example if I have article databases for Topic 1, Topic 2, Topic 3.

Will it pull the latest 8 articles regardless of Topic?

Thanks

You can only choose one database with multiples categories for one slider.

​Cool, thanks. I'll be getting a couple of these.

If you look Pages widget for showing latest records in a db, it is not nicely styled at all no Thumbs ect....  Maybe this could be a good option to replace that.

I think the demo link in the Marketplace works, but the demo link in this thread does not.

I Have a small issue with this, I added a few test positions. Running 4.0.0 and the latest version updated on Sunday of the application.

I can't click to edit any of them (none have images) I can click to drag and sort but not edit?

Try to use Chrome browser to edit, I'll fix this issue in next version.

@craigf136 or go to ACP -> Customization -> Themes -> click < / > button on right of your theme -> featuredcontent -> manage -> itemRows

Find

                    <a href='#' data-ipsdialog='' data-ipsDialog-url="{url="app=featuredcontent&module=slider&controller=view&do=manageSlider&id={$Slider->id}&item={$row['id']}"}" data-ipsdialog-size='narrow' data-ipsdialog-title='{lang="fcs_edit"}' data-ipsdialog-forcereload='true'>
                        <img src="{$row['image']}" alt='' style="width: 100%; height: 150px; cursor: move;" title="{$row['title']}">
                    </a>
                    <span>{$row['title']}</span>

Replace with

					<a href='#' data-ipsdialog='' data-ipsDialog-url="{url="app=featuredcontent&module=slider&controller=view&do=manageSlider&id={$Slider->id}&item={$row['id']}"}" data-ipsdialog-size='narrow' data-ipsdialog-title='{lang="fcs_edit"}' data-ipsdialog-forcereload='true'>

​So this is like a Block that you can simply click and drag wherever you want it to be?

Is it like the block/widget called Featured Topics? only instead of plain text, it uses thumbnails?

No, drag and drop to so Sort items in the Slider. There is a widget Featured content in block manager that you can drag to your page (see the screenshots)
