Release Notes

Overview

This web part has been packaged into a solution. Once installed, you can use it on any page within your SharePoint environment. This release includes bug fixes, it does not contain any new enhancements.

Installation

  1. Download the WSP file, save it to the %CommonProgramFiles%\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN\ folder on your SharePoint server
  2. Go to the command prompt, and navigate to the same folder you saved the WSP file to (cd /d %CommonProgramFiles%\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN\)
  3. Add the solution: stsadm -o addsolution -filename SPAdRotator.wsp
  4. Deploy the solution: stsadm -o deploysolution -name SPAdRotator.wsp -allcontenturls -allowgac -local (Note: Use -immediate instead of -local if you are deploying this on a SharePoint farm)
  5. Make the Web Part available to the site collection:
    1. Open up a browser and login to your SharePoint site.
    2. From the root site, go to Site Actions -> Site Settings -> Modify All Site Settings
    3. Underneath the Galleries column, click on Web Parts
    4. On the toolbar, click New
    5. Scroll all the way down to the bottom, then check the checkbox next to the SPAdRotator.SPAdRotator entry.
    6. Scroll back up to the top, then click on Populate Gallery
  6. You can now add the web part to any page, in the exact same fashion that you would add any other web part (Look for the SPAdRotator Web Part underneath the Miscellaneous category)
  7. Once you've added the web part to the page, use the drop down menu and click on Modify Shared Properties At the bottom, underneath Query, provide a list name. You can use any Image Library as the source list.

Upgrade

If you have installed a previous version of SPAdRotator, you can use the following STSADM command in lieu of the commands above: stsadm -o upgradesolution -name SPAdRotator.wsp -filename SPAdRotator.wsp -local -allowgac (Note: Be sure you have saved the .WSP file to the location in step 1 above, and use -immediate instead of -local if you are deploying this on a SharePoint farm)

It's nice but it would be better if it could scale the images. anyway keep up the good work.

A good start on a much needed web part. Install instructions are clear and it installed no problem. Would like to see it include a control for scrolling through library images. It would also be good if it scaled images to fit into the web part window rather than cropping with scroll bars. If you dont define width and height, then it just blows out to the full size of the image.
