Hi FT,

I developed that one based on some work from various sources that i 'mixed/mashed' together into an asp.net usercontrol. i'm still not 100% happy with it but have moved onto other things on the site that need urgent attention. i'll see if i can 'remember' where i sourced the bits from and paste the links, tho' as i said, ive kinda 'mashed it up' a bit to create a single asp.net control that takes an xml sheet as it's datasource and then creates the thumbnails 'on the fly' via an imagehandler (so that i can used cached images fro my amazon s3 storage 'site').

give me a few days and i'll get the links together. i prolly won't put the actual asp.net usercontrol up for grabs as it is part of the suite of bespoke components that i'm creating for the current site and possibly subsequent ones once i've ironed out the few niggles that i have with it(them!!). the other approach might be that i compile the asp.net control into a dll and make it publicly available.

Ok jimi, cool, I'll leave it off for now. I subscribe to this topic so I'll get an email when you want it in the list.

What image gallery was he talking about? I can't seem to find it on your site.

ooshola - if you navigate to:

http://www.jamestollan.com/andyward

and then click on the images tab, then the thumnail gallery for that userpage (in this case andyward) is in front of you. clicking on any image then brings up the fullsize image inside a high z-index div (looks like a modal popup).

it's this functionality that i intend to expose as a dll once i've sorted a few minor niggles with the code.

Your photo gallery control is very nice. You might want to look at Craig's List under computer gigs. There seems to be a continuing market among photographers for web sites that show their pictures. Most of these ask for Flash because that's what they expect. I don't do this kind of project myself. Maybe I should. Every week there is another request for a photography gallery site.

The only problem with your site's photo gallery is with the photos themselves. They are amature snapshots and the market is for artistic professional pictures. You can probably get some little projects based on your control if you show it off with some professional photography.

I don't know if you are interested in this sort of thing but you seem well positioned for such projects.

Thanks for the suggestion. However I notice that the link to your site is down as of now.

Since I complained to WebHost4Life and they moved my sites to another server I have been very satisfied.

I like your Black History site very much. I have a lot of questions.

How did you do you do your menus?

I note that your top menu bar has gradient graphics, ToolTips, rollovers and drop down sub-menus. As far as I know these aren't available or easy with the stock menus. You have what looks like a stock Microsoft/TBH menu bar on the bottom of the page. You seem to have abandoned the breadcrumb displays in the pages. I presume only the bottom menu shows additional menu elements as a function of roles.

I see that at least some of your pages use mootools. Are these mootools menus?

How did you do the calendar and tabs?

Is this a commercial control? I presume the data by date is stored in a database. Is this the standard SQL Server 2005 database?

I ended up making the menu in a roundabout way by tinkering with some javascript and stuff. However, there's apparently a cleaner way to do it using asp.net alone--read this whole post at the asp.net website:

http://forums.asp.net/t/1120354.aspx

Yes, I have a regular text menu bar at the bottom. There's no drop downs on it because the MaximumDynamicDisplayLevels is set to zero down there. And Yes, I ditched the breadcrumbs because it cluttered the site; plus, the shallow sitemap depth for this site doesn't really call for it.

No, they're not mootools menus. The "Make Homepage" tooltip is totally a separate entity from the menu. In fact, it's made by this javascript guru: http://www.walterzorn.com/

However, the slideshow is mootools.

I got the highly configurable calendar from this guy: http://www.meanfreepath.com/ (the free version). I simply parse the date string and use it as parameters for the gridview results at the bottom. So yes, the articles are stored in a database. However, I store day month and year separately since the actually DateTime type in SQL 2005 has a limited range (BAD for a history site).
