Norrcompeition Grid module - new features

Hello.

I'm doing a meme website. for people that dont know what a meme is... its a funny picture with text in it. I use Norrcompetition to allow user to submit their own Memes ( funny images) on the website. When user upload images, it goes directly to the memes list as small thumbnails. The problem was that when user would upload.. they had to crop the image.... unfortunatly it wont show well in small thumbnail.. so i had to use Module Norrcompetition Grid and set image to medium and remove the crop css in the upload platform.

Now it work perfectly, but i find some disapointing missing things with the norrcompetition grid module.

+ It doesn't show the Share button
+ It doesn't show Submitter name.
+ it doesn't show Description

Now lets talk about Norrcompetition Component, It would be great if I could upload GIF to my website using Norrcompetition upload platform. Is it possible? if no, is there a way to make it work? :P

Thanks alot !
Anthony

Hi Anthony.

Yes it is possible. Will include it in plan for the next version.

Share in fact does not make sense, because it will share the page where module is located, not a specific entry.

It would be great if I could upload GIF to my website using Norrcompetition upload platform. Is it possible? if no, is there a way to make it work?

It is possible already. The problem is that resizing of images makes GIF images static. The good news here is that NorrCompetition saves the original image :) So what I think is that a slight modifying of Grid module can show the original images.

Well you still to modify the output to display original (not resized) image.

Please drop an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will send you a modified version of module that supports dynamic gif images.

To enable contestant name and description there is a bunch of code to be modified. So you would not make it by yourself. New version is planned to first half of March, I think.

Hello Dmitry!
Thanks alot for you help

Look like there no youtube logo ( play) on the thumbnail. its hard for people to know if its a video or not. yes it work if you click on it. it load to the lightbox and then you see the youtube logo and you can play the video.

Also in the module Norcompetition grid parameter, there a option name : Lightbox video. If I disable it suppose to display the thumbnail video but it only show ( like i said) the image of the video.

Thanks alot
