How to Manage Tabs GK4 Module?Top

Tabs GK4 module is the follower of Tabs Manager GK3 component and of GK tab module. As it was in case of Image Show GK4 module, it combines component and module features and it allows to manage tabs directly from a module level.

Basic settings involves ID and suffix of a module. “Module height” option is an important parameter – it determines the maximum height of a module contents.

We can manage tabs with “Your Tabs” tab:

To add a new element, we have to click „Add New Tab” button:

The image above presents a form of adding a tab which includes XHTML code. If we pick a module as tab’s content, the form will look as follows:

We have to remember that in case of not using templates for Joomla! 1.6 of our company, we have to add the following code to a <positions> tag in templateDetails.xml file:

						<position>tab1</position>
<position>tab2</position>
<position>tab3</position>
<position>tab4</position>
<position>tab5</position>
<position>tab6</position>
<position>tab7</position>
<position>tab8</position>
<position>tab9</position>
<position>tab10</position>

Due to this, tab1-tab10 modules’ positions will become available in our template. It is important because modules placed in these positions are not ghosted in other parts of a site.

After clicking a specific element in the list or after clicking an edition button we will see an edition form of a target position:

ATTENTION! It is important to remember that all operations done on elements of a list are saved only after saving settings of a whole module. Thanks to this, in case of performing wrong operations on elements of a list, it is enough to refresh an edition page of a module to recover the original data.

Another group of settings is set by interface settings:

By using these settings we can define tabs position(“Tabs position” option), switch on/off “prev” and “next” buttons on sides of a module (“Buttons prev/next” option) and choose a module style (If our template does not contain Tabs GK4 module’s support)

We can also configure module’s animation styles:

Due to his configurations we can decide whether a tab will be activated after clicking it or after targeting its area (“Animation activator” option). “Auto animation” option switches on an automatic tab animation which changes a module’s content, depending on how we set an interval between contents by “Animation interval” option or speed of an animation by “Animation speed” option.

To set the type of animation we use “Animation type” and “Animation transition” options – the first one defines properties used within an animation and the second option defines the display and dynamics of an animation.

The last group of settings looks as follows:

“Use CSS” and “Use script” options are quite typical for different modules of ours. It needs to be mentioned that if a template supports styling in Tabs GK4 module, “Use SCC” option should be switched off.

Due to “Tab selection from URL” option, by using the address we are able to decide about which tab will be opened as first. To do this, we add gktab variable to an address, e.g.

http://yoursite.com/index.php?gktab=3

In this case, the third tab will be displayed as first.

We can also switch on “Tab selection from cookies” option – when it is on, the first tab to be opened will be the one which was opened as the latest (each information about opening a tab is saved in a cookie file).

Due to „Parse plugins” option we can decide whether plugins’ options in a module will be displayed or not.

How to Manage News Show Pro GK4?Top

News Show Pro GK4 is a complex module for presenting content. Thanks to extended options, it allows to adjust content look very easily.

Basic module settings are in “Basic Settings” tab:

Except specifying module suffix and ID, we can specify module width in per cents and define font size to Basic size.

The next group of settings are parameters connected with the choice of data source and its filtering:

Data source can be Joomla! categories or articles chosen by a user. In the case of categories, it is enough to choose categories from multiple choice list whereas when we want to present articles chosen, a list of their IDs separated with a coma has to be given, e.g. 233, 25, 122, 145.

“News order” and “News sort order” options are for specifying the way of sorting articles. Thanks to “Show article created after” option, it is possible to specify the oldest article to be presented. “Show frontpage items” option allows to display or hide articles which are marked as “Featured” and thanks to “Frontpage items only” option, it is possible to present those articles only. When “Show unauthorized items” option is on , we can display articles to which normally a user does not have access because of permissions and then, after clicking links to these articles he/she will be asked for log in.

“First news number” option allows to specify from which article in a given articles collection data will be presented. It is useful when we have more than one module operating on the same articles collection but we want to divide this collection in two between two modules – then, the first module displays articles from the first one to X number and the second displays articles from X number to the end.

The greatest options group are article layout options:

In the first part of these settings we can specify the amount of pages with articles and amount of columns and rows on one page. So the total amount of articles loaded is:

amount of pages with articles * amount of columns * amount of rows

In “Pagination” option, it is possible to choose one out of four pagination interface style with articles.

Next options are connected with particular articles elements:

Options seen above allow to define articles headers look: amount of text, header link, text layout and its float.

Images options allow to define whether it includes a link to article and its positioning.

Similarly as it is with a header, in text articles options it is possible to specify text positioning, switch on/off a link to article and specify the amount of text displayed.

Each article can display two information blocks. For each, we can specify displayed data format. It is enough to give one of the following sequences:

At the end of this group of options, there are options connected with elements order:

 

It is possible to specify in each element its order or switch it off completely. Additionally, it is possible to add spaces between articles in “Article block padding” option.

The next group of settings are links parameters which are the complement of article content displayed:

Similarly, as it is with articles, it is possible to specify the amount of pages with links, the amount of lines (in this case “Amount of links’)and the amount of columns with links. It looks the same in the case of links pagination.

Additionally, we can specify blocks margins with links and their position towards articles (“Links position”). In each link, it is possible to show article’s short description (“Show links description”) and specify title text limit and its description.

Thumbnails configuration presented in a module is a separate group of options:

„Create thumbnails” option allows to switch on a system of generating thumbnails. The way of generating them are defined by the remaining options. Thanks to “Keep aspect ratio” we will always have images adjusted best to “Thumbnail width” and “Thumbnail height” sizes. “Thumbnail background” option specifies background color displayed in images when the image does not cover fully an area given (and “Thumbnail stretch” option which stretches images to sizes given is off). “Thumbnail quality” option specifies a compression level. “Cache time” is a very important option – it prevents from generating thumbnails in every page request.

All thumbnails are stored in a module cache/ catalog. Additionally, if a given article does not have images, default images default.MOD_ID.png from default/ catalog can be loaded, where MOD_ID is an ID of our module, e.g. newsprol.

The next to the last group of settings are additional settings:

The first five options are connected with pages with data animation. “Autoanimation” option allows to switch on auto animation and its speed and transitions are defined by “Animation speed”, “Animation interval” and “Animation transition” options. Thanks to “Hover animation” option, it is possible to switch on animation activation after moving a cursor on a pagination button (normally, it requires clicking on this button).

In options from “Article content” group, it is possible to specify symbols displayed at the end of “End of text” short text and switch on cleaning (X)HTML tags (we recommend to use this option in order to avoid problems with page validation). Additionally, it is possible to specify whether plugins from article content be parsed (“Parse plugins”) or whether plugins tags are removed automatically (“Clean plugins”).

The last group presents options connected with external files:

We can enforce to use default module CSS style thanks to “Use default CSS” option – it has to be remembered that in the case of templates which support News Show Pro GK4 module, this option has to be switched off.

In “Using JS module” option, it is possible to specify the way of adding module scripts. In the case of greater amount of module instances on the page, the safest option to use will be “Automatic” mode.
