switch plugin PL5 & switch with DMS

Recommended Posts

Skip

Hello

I'm experimenting with the PL5 in attempting to recreate the website built with DMS and Voyant theme.

Notice the switch and the way it is used with DMS & Voyant in the section 2 Our Process and right below starting with 1- The Idea and so on... https://www.trueblueauctions.com

With PL5 attempting to duplicate the page here - http://www.trueblueauctions.com/beta/  I'm trying to use the "switch" Extension to make it the same but can't quite figure out how.

Any ideas?

Much thanks...

Not sure what you are asking nandorj78...  The original website (https://www.trueblueauctions.com) I built with DMS and the one I'm experimenting on with PL5 (http://www.trueblueauctions.com/beta/) to see if I can re-create it with PL5.  I like some of the things PL5 does but I personally want at the very least the same and then much more than what I have with DMS do I figured I would try to re-create the website with PL5.  I'd be happy to pass on to you what I did with the original website.  I used DMS and the Voyant theme.  If you want to know any specifics, please ask...  I'm happy to share...

nandorj78, I know what you are asking now...  

I used plugin "hover news" - I hid the author, categories and date.  I used category style 1 and grid format.  Hope it helps...

All the best of Providence.

Are you sure the name of the plugin is 'hover news'? Couldn't find it.

Hover News was a 3rd party plugin not a PL plugin.

Btw, do you know any free plugin that would do similar things?

Nandorj78+, I can't say that I do...  I wish I did but the problems I'm finding so far is that PL5 maybe fast and easy and that is great but it does not provide the same as DMS yet...  I hope that it does but can't tell yet...  I personally don't like excuses called, "bloat" or whatever they want to providing plugins and whatnot needed to make it simple and easy for us...

Hover News was a plugin I built for DMS. It was not very popular so at this stage I am not thinking about making it for PL5 - sorry. 
I am writing a TUT on how you can get the effect using CSS though.

It may not have been popular Gavin, but it worked like a charm & worked very well on my sites. You do good work!
