xili-floom-slideshow plugin : one example of a picture frame

Detailled example of a slideshow (background image and css)
(If Safari browser is used, after each slides loop: a little silly surprise – css changed by event fired)
In this example for images (420px 315px), a special frame was created (width 480px). (it is compatible with default current theme (kubrik). (download the png)

and a specific part of css added (to add in the floom.css uploaded in floom/css/ sub-folder of current theme).

/* example with frame cadre_demo and images 420 x 315 - overall width 480 */
#blinds-cont-d { -webkit-box-shadow: 0 0 12px #220; background: url(cadre_demo.png) 0 0 no-repeat; margin: 20px auto; padding: 26px 0 0 0; font-family: 'Georgia', 'Arial Narrow', 'Arial', sans-serif; height: 391px; -moz-box-shadow: 0 0 20px #000; width: 480px; border-radius: 6px; -webkit-border-radius: 6px; -opera-border-radius: 6px; -moz-border-radius: 6px;}
#blinds-cont-d #blinds { margin: 0 auto; background: url(spinner.gif) 50% no-repeat; height: 315px; width: 420px; }
#blinds-cont-d #blinds .floom_slice { z-index: 10; }
#blinds-cont-d #blinds .floom_caption { text-shadow: 0 1px 0 #fff; font-size: 1.0em; color: #333; font-style: normal; position: relative; text-align: center; width: 100%; top: 20px; }
#blinds-cont-d #blinds .floom_caption span.floom_desc {font-size:80%; font-style: italic;}
#blinds-cont-d #blinds .floom_progressbar { font-size: 1px; background: #97997E; border-bottom: solid 1px #fff; height: 3px; position: relative; z-index: 1000; width: 0; top: 12px; }
#blinds-cont-d #blinds .floom_container { overflow: hidden;}
#blinds-cont-d #blinds .floom_vertical { float: left; }

Because the id is blinds-cont-d, the shortcode must be :

[xilifloom frame_id="blinds-cont-d"]

To see progressbar and for each image read title and description, custom fields are set like here:

* progressbar is set by default to false (processor cycle consumer) but here, only in this post, it is set to true.

    I really like this plugin which i intend to use for a page header on a worpress site that im building.

    However it just doesnt work with IE9, it stalls on the loading up. Is there anything i can do to fix this bug?

    I know it suck that IE always throws these things up. Good work so far though 🙂


  4. xiligroup dev dit :

    I am not sure that javascript floom is IE9 compatible… what is it written in autho’rs site ? Do you test it on firefox and Safari ?

  5. Sam dit :

    I really love this.

    I have 5 images and I would like the 1st image to load form the left, the 2nd from the right, the 3rd form the left again and so on. How can i do this with this plugin?

    Please help me

  6. xiligroup dev dit :

    As described, this plugin provides floom vertical and horizontal but not what you expected…

  7. Sam dit :

    @xiligroup dev thanks. That’s a pity. is it possible to have the images loop through until it gets to the last image (image 6 for example) and then stop on image 6?

  8. xiligroup dev dit :

    Basically, original floom script provides a loop… But if you modify it or better, create (extend it) as suggested here…


    BUT for you, perhaps, ‘on the plugins market’ their is an another solution !

  9. Ebrima Dem dit :
