XMod Pro Module Kit - jQuery Content Slideshow: CSSTricks Featured Content Slider
As an example kit to show off the flexibility of XMod Pro templates when creating module items for DotNetNuke like a featured content rotator / slider, we have put together an example using our example data set and a popular jQuery Content Slideshow
This is a great item to use as a basis for a news article slider, newest text/entries slideshow, etc. More than just an image gallery, it is intended to showcase article, text, paragraph and news content in a nice way in a compact area. In this example setup, items marked as Featured in the database are shown with more details such as title, subtitle and description, while the rest are shown with just images and titles.
It can be used to show it's own data, or it can be used to show the newest articles from an article module, newest blog posts, support tickets, etc. from any existing module records. Use this as a base code to create your own customized module or use it as a resource for tips and tricks for building your own XMod Pro solution!
