Update (14/09/2008): The Latest development version uses Ariel Flesler’s scrollTo plugin to achieve some nice transitions. The interaction is coming along, also now supports more than one instance per page. Having problems with browser jumping when URL hash is updated, Chrome copes with this fine, all other browsers fail… hmmm…
Always on the lookout for new ways to cram more information into less space and maintain a good user experience. 🙂
I say a new take because I’m putting it together, but I’m sure there are other solutions like it around.
This solution will feature: Semantic markup and content unobtrusively transformed into a compact display with navigation to access each panel.
Obviously, there’s still work to be done, improvements to accessibility and a pausable automatic slideshow function. But the basic functionality is there
Didn’t take very long to put together so far, thank you jQuery.
The idea is to eventually combine this functionality with the existing compact sections script so that any of three display modes can be easily chosen (even switched between) for the compact presentation of sections of content.
