Hi. I want to set up a coverflowish HTML or PHP site which will give me a similar interface to this used in macheist:

Uploaded with plasq (http://plasq.com)'s Skitch (http://skitch.com)

Where the top bit is coverflow-ish and then the bottom bit is controlled by what i presume is an AJAX page setup.

Does anyone know how I can achieve this or if (this would be easier) there is something out there which will do this for me?

Cheers,

Jeff

1st thing is. When asking for help with programming, where there is an example site you have found, provide a link to the page that you want people to help you mimic. I, unfortunately cant find that exact page, and therefore am unable to help.

Feel free to post the link and I'll take a look.

Same here. Or was this from the old Macheist site?

ImageFlow (http://194.95.111.244/~countzero/scripts/_myImageFlow/) does that sort of thing, not sure if it's exactly what your after, but it looks pretty snazzy :)

Note: it looks like their site is down at the moment, so you'll have to wait.


EDIT: their site's back up.

you could develop this site using the drupal CMS. It would require a little work (not that much), though you could achieve such functionality with jquery and Panels 2 modules specifically (in combination with a couple others like views and their dependencies).

I do not have time right now to help directly, though could possibly answer questions if you went down that route.

I didnt post a link to the site because only MacHeist members would be able to view it, and any MacHeist member would know how to get to it. its MacHeist My Loot (http://www.macheist.com/loot) , but yeh, what i said before.

Neither ImageFlow or Scriptalicous seem to do what I want, I want the cover flow like thing on the top and then the selection in the coverflowish thing triggers an ajax load underneath of a particular page with information regarding the selection

Thanks to those who replied so far and those who reply in the future.

I'll be honest, your not going to get anything like that for free. If you hired a web designer to create a page like that for you, it'd cost thousands.

I reckon imageflow (http://194.95.111.244/~countzero/scripts/_myImageFlow/) could sort of do what you want, cause the images are actual links aswell. So you could create individual pages that are basically identical, with differing info underneath the cloverflow navigator.

Beautiful web doesen't come in noodlebox for 5.99. script.aculo.us - web 2.0 javascript (http://script.aculo.us), MooTools (http://mootools.net/) and Prototype (http://www.prototypejs.org/) will provide the tools for you to commence designing and implementation but there's no way you'll avoid getting under the hood. There are plenty of cruddy flash coverflow versions around if you google for them though.

I think it looks like imageflow will be the easiest to do this with. i wasnt aware it could catch the clicks on the images, so i might end up using that then. we'll see how i go :D

Actually, this is one I quite like! I already use rapid weaver for my site so I might invest in this little beauty! :D

Does anybody happen to know how to implement imageflow into a Drupal site? It's an awesome application, but I'm stuck. Thanks for any and all help.
