I've got a request for a new module, I've done the design work on how I think it should work but I'll probably need some pointers on how to implement it.
Essentially I want to add a carousel that displays thread title, plus the first paragraph of a news post over top of an image for the first 5 threads in the news forum. Take a look at the mockup I've made below for reference:
- Thread title, if to long to fit, adds a "..." to the end.
- First paragraph of news post (basically all the text in the thread until the first line break).
- Navigation bar at the bottom, showing the current news article being displayed. You can click on these to manually navigate between latest news.
It would be great if the colors of this module could be easily customizable too. For example, the active/inactive colors of the navbar, the title and content text colors, and the title and content background block colors.
I believe this is a pretty intense modification / addition, but I think that something like this could benefit a lot of people. In fact, the latest thread on this forum is a similar request:
Is anyone willing to take up the challenge?
