Ok, been thinking about how I want the membership list to look & perform.
First, I would like a layout similar to the first entry in the showcase (https://www.chem.ufl.edu/faculty-and-research/).
I want the initial display to show the Family entry – and when a person clicks on “show details”
- IF there is only 1 person in the family, the existing card expands (like in the showcase example above) showing the rest of that person’s details.
- IF there is more than 1 person in the family, the existing card expands in however many additional cards as there are in the family (each sub-card showing the full details of each person).
Is this even feasible?12/16/2015 at 10:21 am #358261
re: First, I would like a layout similar to the first entry in the showcase (https://www.chem.ufl.edu/faculty-and-research/).
That site, is listed under the custom section of the demo. They took the cMap template and made several changes changes to it. So the closest template available to this showcase site would be be the cMap template but to get some thing like that, you would have to make the same changes to the PHP files of the template.
As for wants 1 and 2, yes it is feasible but only if you know PHP can can make the changes to the templates to make it. I also do provide custom developed solutions so that might be an option too but that is a bit more expensive than buying one of the stock templates.12/16/2015 at 1:10 pm #358284Chris BarnesGuest
ok. Not the perfect answer I was hoping for – but it at least gets me going in the right direction…
Is there something about the different templates that describes what each of them actually DO?12/16/2015 at 1:13 pm #358285Chris BarnesGuest
(wish I could edit previous posts)
For example – on the cMap page, it says “over 100 interactive point and click tweakable options”
It would be nice to have a list of those tweakable options… :-)12/17/2015 at 10:44 am #358450
re: Is there something about the different templates that describes what each of them actually DO?
Well, what they do is display the entry differently which is why I have a live sample of the template on the page along with a link to a demo page and links to live sites using the template.
re: For example – on the cMap page, it says “over 100 interactive point and click tweakable options”
An overview of those options can be found in the docs.. I’m not sure it’s practical to display an itemized list of those options. perhaps I can add a gallery of screenshot of them. That said, the advanced section of the docs which cover the advanced shortcode options, a majority of those are the 100+ point and click configration options.12/17/2015 at 3:09 pm #358474Chris BarnesGuest
Ah (he says as a light goes off). I didn’t realize that each template had it’s own set of docs. That is helpful!12/17/2015 at 4:09 pm #358499
I’m also working this too… a way to improve discovery of all the doc pages by creating a table of contents/index page which will become the “landing page for the Documentation link in the main nav (under the Support drop down). I’m a little stuck how to make it better than a really long list of links (other than adding a little excerpt describing each link).
