Quicksand Portfolio [FREE] for WWB8+

Quicksand is a simplified version of Razorjack's Quicksand jQuery plugin and is designed to filter an unordered list by selecting filter items from another list. So this extension is ideal to use as a portfolio device or a navigational tool...or both.

Go straight to the Quicksand demo page.

And NO..there are no plans to add RazorJack's sorting facility. What you see is what you get!

Read the help file fully before asking for support. :)

Hey fella,

Well, let me know how you get on with it.

The originator and a couple of other sites using it state that it needs a doc type of html5 but I forgot to do that in my demo and it's working fine. So let me know if you find any issues.

Paul this is SWEET! I am doing a massive artist website with many many galleries. I can use this to group galleries by content and composition. NICE!

Thank you for sharing this.

Yes, that is possible. I just need to make a small change to the code and add a property. I won't be able to get to this for a few days as I have been out of the country (and no internet) for several weeks. But I'll update as soon as I can.

Version 1.0.0.1 uploaded.

I have added a new property in section 02 called Full List Name and that has an editable option property that shows a few common languages such as English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Polish etc. for the word 'all' but you can edit the value anyway so any language can be used.

I can see from all the above that people are finding this easy and workable.

For me not so much. Easy - yes but I cannot get it to work and have followed all the instructions but must have missed something because it just doesn't filter

See attached images
Have only ever changed 02 and 04.
04 we didn't put in a text link ( what is the purpose of this as the instructions do not say )
Images are not set at 200 because we are just looking at the operation not the look.

Selecting filters in the browser in preview mode - nothing happens but the hover colours and selection colours DO change
Selecting the hyperlink (text ) throws open a duplicate page.
Tried it in HTML 4.01 and 5. In 5 even less works as the hyperlink stays inactive.

Running Win7 and Chrome / Firefox latest editions.

Is this another one of those wysiwyg things that only work after you publish or have we missed something here?

Your comment not understood. We HAVE downloaded the extension.
That is how we know that we cannot get it to work.

Do you mean do I have a link ( url ) to the site?
If that is yes then .. as I have said before ... we have not published the site yet so is the problem because of this OR should the extension work in "preview in browser"

I would need to see your project file. Either post a zip file here or email me from my support page and I'll email you back so you can then email the project to me.
