Title: Recent Posts ezBlock: Scroll down function
Post by: Griff Grof on September 09, 2012, 05:57:47 pm
Suggested on the ezPortal support forum, but they're of seldom use, so decided to also post here and to also see if anyone else likes the idea, or doesn't see the point in it - maybe you've had the same problems too? And as ezPortal is integrated within Create A Forum, and made by the same person, it still makes sense to post here, as most of us CAF will have used ezPortal at one time on our forums.

Anyway, the suggestion came about as users on my forum have complained that the "Recent Posts" ezBlock has a set amount of posts to show, as on a day with lots of posts they have to go to the unread posts page - so the block becomes pointless . It has been suggested by one of our members that you can scroll down to read posts on the block (like you can scroll down a website/browser online), so there is no set limit, but maybe a set limit per page as you scroll. That way it will be easier for busier forums!


And adding more amount of posts to show isn't an option for us, and probably many, as it would completely mess up our portal homepage, and then all the blocks wouldn't fit together.

Also, putting the suggestion into reality (being able to scroll up and down within an ezBlock) CAF please, please don't ignore this, if it can't be done then please reply saying  - thank you!

Does anyone also think this would be a good idea? support

I agree with this suggestion so I'm going to see if I can make a code for this later

At the very latest, I might be able to do this over the weekend but it isn't for sure.

Just a quick question... How do I stop it doing this on my forum? It's missed the portal up...  :-\  Or is it just the fact that I'm on a tablet right now?

I think it's because you're on a tablet, there doesn't seem to be anything wrong to me.

Hmm, it looks like that on regular computers to me too  :-\

That's the top part, and here is the bottom just so you can see the whole thing:

All the blocks used to fit together (with no white spaces) . Also note there is a scroll down in the poll section? support


Many thanks for taking your time to help support

I can't seem to fix the problem, sorry.

That's okay, thanks for looking  :)


I guess I should remove it then?  :'(

Post by: Griff Grof on November 08, 2012, 01:42:11 pm
Interestingly when I remove the AJAX code script required everything goes back to normal but the scroll down stops working - is it an error in this code?  ???
Title: Re: Recent Posts ezBlock: Scroll down function
Post by: aIURbliS on November 09, 2012, 02:56:21 am
There is no ajax code used, if you want, you could remove it.
Title: Re: Recent Posts ezBlock: Scroll down function
Post by: Griff Grof on November 09, 2012, 01:28:06 pm
I'm sorry, I meant jQuery code, not AJAX  :-[ :-\
Title: Re: Recent Posts ezBlock: Scroll down function
Post by: aIURbliS on November 09, 2012, 02:47:29 pm
Well of course it stops working because the code is the reason why it works in the first place.
Title: Re: Recent Posts ezBlock: Scroll down function
Post by: Griff Grof on November 09, 2012, 08:28:35 pm
I know that.. :D  But when I remove the script code and keep the jQuery the white spaces and gaps are still there  :-\ , whilst when I remove the JQuery and keep the scroll down one (even though it of course doesn't function) the white spaces and gaps disappear  :o ... so what I was saying is that the reason those gaps are there must be in the jQuery code not the scroll down one:


I can't seem to fix the problem, sorry.
I am saying the above incase whilst you tried to fix it you were focussing on the scroll down script as the error not the jQuery  :)

The jQuery as the one in the headers? It isn't going to do anything on its own because it's basically a set of functions and codes activate them.

Yes, and okay  :)  Wonder what it is causing the gaps then?  ???

I have no explanation for that but try removing the code and then clearing your cache.

Members really wanted this feature back, so today I decided to do so. It doesn't work at all now support support Just a long list of posts, and no scroll bar


What has gone wrong? supportsupport


Please help, quite urgent! thanks!  :)
Title: Re: Recent Posts ezBlock: Scroll down function
Post by: Griff Grof on February 11, 2013, 01:34:27 pm
Sorted now  :)


Still distorts the portal, as before, but going to try and fiddle round to see if I can fix it  :)
Title: Re: Recent Posts ezBlock: Scroll down function
Post by: Griff Grof on February 11, 2013, 02:02:11 pm
Do you really not know what could be causing all the while spaces? No matter where I place it, left right top bottom, on one page, on another, everything is distorted with large white spaces.


 ??? ??? 


Probably a really obvious fixable error flying past both of us  :D

Sorry to wake this again.


Was thinking about trying this out again, but the code no longer does anything at all. Was using the latest version of both codes. Any ideas why  ???
