Can this be achieved in Freeway?

Hi, just wanted to know if this effect is possible, maybe using something like Scriptyaccordion or something of the like.

Any ideas or help would be appreciated. As I would like to incorporate this in to a site.

Thanks David…having a look at this, just trying to get my head around it, as not much of a code junky.

Where should I start? any hints.

Much appreciated.

Code “junky”… I think that is a good place to start. Fix that and the rest
will seem easy.

Ernie is a spelling pedant, like me. I got his joke. He is using that joke – seriously – to point out that any descent into code requires an approach to detail (like spelling, or case, or source order) that is machine-like in nature. The art of programming is learning to think like a machine, so you can explain to a machine what you want it to do.

First thing, if you use this precise method, you cannot use any other Scriptaculous effects on your page. So any of the built-in Actions in Freeway like Transition FX or Rollover that offer an Effect menu – you have to do without those. The reason is that this effect requires jQuery, which duplicates the effort of Scriptaculous and also makes it die horribly.

Second, to apply this code to your page, you would need to write an Action that could re-structure your page content into an ordered list. That’s the layout trick they are using to stack all of the elements so they slide in and out of view. I’m not sure how to even begin to code such a thing, since Freeway’s layout model is diametrically opposed to this approach.

I am sure there are other effects like this around, have a google for vertical parallax or scroll-linked navigation, and see what you come up with. The key will be to find a way to define your animated elements without needing to structure the page in a list.
