Slick Contact Forms
[resolved] feature and usage question (13 posts)

    I love using cforms II and I'd like to continue doing but I am also looking to have a nice floating/slide out effect.

    I was actually looking for such a widget when I found this one. do you maybe have a version where I can alternatively insert my own widget? i.e. you just offering the shell where I can insert any widget I like into?

    oh and how about an option to show the text vertically/horizontally? i.e. if adding the form to the left or right it kind of intrudes into the page content.... so if turning by 90degrees this could be solved...

    Hi,

    You can actually apply the slide out effect by using the jquery slick plugin. see full instructions on how to use at - http://www.designchemical.com/lab/jquery-slick-plugin/getting-started/

    For vertical text this is not possible using standard html. What you can do though is create an image of the vertical text and add it to the tab as a background image in CSS

    cool, it doesn't have to be a wp plugin, I think I can use the page you linked to to create my own little thinggy :-)

    one more question, would it be possible after using that tutorial to create my own widget that slides in containing my own widget, to have a link which would cause it to slide in/out when clicked?

    Probably the easiest way would be to create a shortcode, which wraps the widget area with a div tag.

    The slick plugin is pretty easy to use - just wrap the content in a div tag, give it an ID and then declare that ID in the jQuery initialisation code. The plugin then handles the rest

    I am not sure I explained to well what I was looking for, I'll try again, or maybe, I didn't understand your answer :-)

    I would love to have something like this plugin: http://www.designchemical.com/lab/demo-wordpress-jquery-slick-menu-plugin/ but not be restricted to inserting a menu into it. I'd rather insert a widget into it. any widget I like. i.e. another contact form.

    THEN, I'd like to call it via a link as you can with that plugin.

    or, I could use http://www.designchemical.com/lab/jquery-slick-plugin/getting-started/ but that makes me hard-code the div I want to show which would be a manually included contact form or another sidebar but how do I make that one slide in via a link? I don't see any mentioning of this feature?
    i.e. have a normal menu structure, one menu point called: contact which, if clicked, slides out a contact form instead of opening a page called contact?

    Hi,

    I have updated the slick plugin pages, which now contain the info on how to open using external links - basically just apply the class "slick-open" to any link

    just checked: the new description says: Toggle the tab open/closed via external links but then it doesn't mention the class "slick-open" anywhere?
    we are talking about this page: http://www.designchemical.com/lab/jquery-slick-plugin/getting-started/ right?

    anyway, thanks for mentioning hte info here :-)

    The class can be set by changing the options - http://www.designchemical.com/lab/jquery-slick-plugin/options/

    I'm really sorry man, I didn't notice the menu on the top right side where I can navigate to: options, examples, download :-(

    now everything is clear :-)
