ES theme function request



  • @jdrassa sorry to bug you, but i know you are the man when it comes to theme improvements. I have a request and I hope it is not to hard. In the carousel it is. Is possible to set the size and well as scale of the center system logo. Would it be possible to add settings to scale the logos that are not in the center? Say I have 3 logos visible. I want to scale the center logo to 2 so it is 2 times larger than the standard size, I would then lie to set the I selected logos to the right and left to 0.5 so they get smaller than how they normally show up.

    Then, if that is possible, it would be great to be able to set the spacing between the logos. My hope would be to have a nice large center logo, and then have then systems to the right or left be small and all the way to their respective edges. Right now if the logos are long names and I make the center logo large, it overlaps the adjacent logos.

    This are my top requests, secondary ideas are to be able to change the locations of the logos so the are not in a line and centered on each other. What I mean is it would be nice to have the center logo in the middle of the screen, and then set the smaller logos on either side to be located along the bottom of the screen, or the top if so chosen.

    If this is to difficult, no worries. Things work well now, it would just be cool to have more control over the carousel. It is always nice to see the systems on either side when browsing, but I think a few themes would be nice without having that information so "front and center"

    Thanks



  • @TMNTturtlguy I believe the size and spacing can actually be done now. Below is an example adapted from your ComicBook theme. For the size, the trick is to set the logoSize smaller and then increase the logoScale to make the selected image larger. For the spacing, the trick is to make the carousel larger then the screen.

    <carousel name="systemcarousel">
    				<!-- Default value is "1 0.2325" -->
    				<size 1.3 0.2325</size>
    				<!-- Default value is "0 0.38375" -->
    				<pos>-.15 0.38375</pos>
    				<type>horizontal</type>
    				<color>eeeeeecc</color>
    				<!-- default size is "0.25 0.155" -->
    				<logoSize>.125 .07525</logoSize>
    				<logoScale>4</logoScale>
    				<maxLogoCount>3</maxLogoCount>
    			</carousel>

    I have a rough implementation of alignment options for the logos that I am planning on finishing up in the near future. I believe they will probably meet your needs.



  • @jdrassa great! I will give this a try!

    Thank you
