Twitter

Written by RRSC. Posted in General info

The Widgetkit Twitter module is the neatest way to display tweets directly on your website. All displayed tweets get cached so they show up super fast, even if Twitter is not available.

Features

  • Filter tweets by hashtags, words, from users, to users, referencing users
  • Block tweets using a blacklist
  • Tweets are cached for high performance
  • Tweets show up even if Twitter is not available
  • 3 different styles to show your tweets
  • Build with HTML5 using article and time elements
  • Works with Joomla and WordPress

How To Use

Create a Twitter module in Joomla or a Twitter widget in WordPress and publish it in a module position. A lot of options are available to choose which tweets you want to show.

For example you can show only tweets from a specific user or tweets that contain a certain hash-tag or a specific word. All options can be combined. To filter by more than one word or user use a space between them. For example: yootheme joomla.

Spotlight

Written by RRSC. Posted in General info

The Widgetkit Spotlight allows you to add an overlay to your images which fades or moves in on mouse hover. The overlay can be an image or HTML content. The default magnifier spotlight is a perfect match to be used with a lightbox.

Features

  • Create nicely animated image overlays
  • Supports custom image or HTML content overlays
  • 5 different animation modes
  • Build on the latest jQuery version
  • Works with Joomla, WordPress and Stand-alone

Examples

If no custom overlay is set the default spotlight fades in an overlay with an magnifier image. If you define a custom overlay you can choose between different animations - fade, bottom, top, right and left.

How To Use

Use the HTML5 custom data attribute data-spotlight to activate the spotlight.

<a data-spotlight="on" href="/mypage.html">
	<img src="/image.jpg" width="180" height="120" alt="" />
</a>

To create a custom overlay use a div element with the CSS class overlay. You can set the effect parameter to the data attribute. For example:

<a data-spotlight="effect:bottom;" href="/mypage.html">
	<img src="/image.jpg" width="180" height="120" alt="" />
	<div class="overlay">Custom Overlay</div>
</a>

You can set the effect parameter to fade, bottom, top, right and left.

Widgetkit

Written by RRSC. Posted in General info

Widgetkit is the next generation tool set for Joomla and WordPress. This toolkit is the first of its kind! It provides a simple and user-friendly way to enrich your websites experience with slideshows, galleries, lightboxes and much more. All widgets make use of modern web technologies like HTML5 markup, CSS3 features and jQuery based JavaScripts. Widgetkit also works on iPads, iPhones and Android phones or tablets. It supports touch gestures and makes use of smooth CSS3 animations. Here is a short feature roundup:

Features

  • Available for Joomla and WordPress
  • All widgets can work stand-alone
  • Use shortcodes to show widgets anywhere
  • Clean and lightweight code
  • Semantic HTML5 markup
  • Asset file Minification and Compression
  • Supports touch gestures for mobile devices
  • Uses hardware accelerated CSS3 animations
  • Build on HTML5, CSS3, PHP 5.2+, jQuery 1.5+

How It Works

Widgetkit basically acts as a platform for all our widgets. It installs as a single component in Joomla or as a plugin in WordPress. The Widgetkit dashboard presents you an overview of all widgets. You can create, edit or delete all widgets and their content in one place. And after you have created the content for your first widget you can either use a shortcode or a module to display your widget anywhere on your website. In fact you can do both because once have you created a widget you are able to display it multiple times and reuse it on different parts of your website.
