Is there any way i can make and upload to a folder my own custom icons?
im going to be installing this on my next build for a client when he pays you are getting a donation as this is exactly what he wanted in his brief!
Yea sure no problem. I added the option under each tab setting to specify a URL to an image for that tab.
You can upload the images to your site via the media settings in wordpress or upload via ftp. Either way copy/paste the URL of the image location to the setting for each tab. They are all individually controlled so you will have to do it for each one you want to be custom. If you leave the setting blank then the usual/default tab will be displayed.
Please update to v5.13 and let me know if you have any problems. Thanks for the suggestion!
excellent had a look and a play, any chance you can add a size option or leave it not to render down to 32×32? i was thinking of doing some funky shapes
unfortunately I cannot change the individual tab size easily. I can add an option to change the tab sizing, but it will apply to all the tabs. I am required to have a set width so jquery knows how much to hide and how much to slide out, etc. Would you want an option to change all of the sizes of the tabs at once?
understood, all tabs at once is fine,
assuming you can do 32x 32 64×64 128x 128 etc
could you do a custom size for all tabs say 32×128? or similar if required assuming that its all tbs at one still?
further question since reading your response could you set a box in the settings page with width /height dimensions and ask jquery to get the sizes from the settings?
thanks for your support
I’ll see what I can do if you don’t mind waiting until tomorrow or the next day when I get back in the office…
Let’s try this again. Please update to v5.14. I added an option for image size under the custom tab section for each tab. Please test it out and let me know if you have any problems. I wrote the revision over a long period of time with several breaks, so I could have missed something…
not at the pc at the moment but will try later when at desk
works bang on!!
donation on its way
thanks for letting me help you make an great plugin even better
came from my other photos address should be with you soon
i have another idea for a different plugin but im still fine tuning the options and viability sadly writing plugins is beyond my ability so once its ready i will send you over the details and you may want to take it up
Thanks so much!!! Yea I’d love to hear about it!
tested in firefox works great, however IE produces a weird repeated bouncing effect?
have uploaded a screen capture to dropbox on this link
as you can see normal behaviour in firefox and spacing
but erractic bouncing in IE and tabs over lapping content
though i cant say i tested it in IE before he upgrade
Ahh! I see.
So the flickr tab is pulling an iframe from flickr.com which has an embeded flash. To IE flash should go on top of everything. So when you hover over the tab to expand out, the mouse instantly leaves the tab and goes above the flash content. Normally you can add a transparent parameter to the flash which would fix this, but since it is nestled in an iframe it is out of my control. I made a workaround for the flickr which is to not use the flash or iframe and use just static images. It is not as flashy, but atleast doesn’t cause the jitter or bouncing.
When the tabs are all the way out there is a blank area that extends the tab content past the next tab to keep if from being hidden. It is just an empty area with a defined width. IE sees it and thinks that since it is empty it doesn’t need to be shown, hence the content not sliding out past the next tab. I added a height and transparent background to that little blank buffer so that IE won’t disregard it and should push past the next tab.
Please update, yet again, to v5.15 and let me know if this solves the issue. Thanks again!
