Hi,

I don't know if this is the right place for this question so apologies if it isn't!

I would like to add an advertising 'widget' to a site I'm working on, the usual rotating logo type of thing which you can click and go to the respective companies website but I can't seem to find anything. Now, I'm guessing this is possible as it seems like a fairly basic thing to do... but I have no idea how to go about it - I do graphics rather than code but can dabble - any ideas?

All advice gratefully received!

Best wishes,

Steve

You might find something useful in https://github.com/nyeholt/silverstripe-advertisements

It's not complete, and still only alpha/beta code quality wise, but there's some useful stuff in there if you're happy to play around with it yourself to figure out how to get some things done.

Be aware that this is 2.4 only for the moment!

Thanks for the link, will check it out! I've just found out that the client wants a sideways transitioning/animating series of logos which link to the respective companies, would this framework be able to do that?

Best wishes,

Steve

It'll let you set up all the logos with relevant linkouts and stuff, but as far as actually displaying them on the frontend, you'll need to add your own javascript logic for displaying the list of images
