How to Install APC(Alternate PHP Caching)

The Alternative PHP Cache (APC) is a free, open, and robust framework for caching and optimizing PHP intermediate code. It's an PECL extension which shares the packaging and distribution system with PEAR. We need to have PEAR installed in our system.
To install APC in ubuntu, we have to write the following command:
sudo pecl install apc
I was facing a problem 'pcre.h: No such file or directory' when installing APC. For this you need to run the following command:
apt-get install libpcre3-dev
Then you try to install APC again. And it will be installed successfully. Then you have to enable APC extension by adding the following in php.ini file:
extension = apc.so

jFlow content slider with Joomla

jFlow is a cool content slider. Many jQuery slider only offers images to slide. Whereas jFlow helps us to slide any type of contents. Vacuum, the cool Joomla template, has jFlow for sliding the contents. It's pretty simple to integrate jFlow with joomla. See a live demo of jFlow with joomla on GrameenTheme.

Let's discuss a sample way to integrate jFlow with joomla:

photo

item->title;?>

item->introtext;?>

read more
Prev 1 2 3 4 5 Next

Then we added the jFlow script file.



We load the jFlow script.

jQuery(document).ready(function() {
jQuery("#myController").jFlow({
slides: "#slides",  
controller: ".jFlowControl", 
slideWrapper : "#jFlowSlide", 
selectedWrapper: "jFlowSelected",  
width: "1000px",  
height: "235px",  
duration: 400,  
prev: ".jFlowPrev", 
next: ".jFlowNext" 
});
});



Finally we add some styles to it.

.slide-wrapper { padding: 5px; }
.slide-thumbnail { width:300px; float:left; padding: 10px;}
.slide-thumbnail img {max-width:300px; }
.slide-details { width:650px; float:right; margin:10px;}
.slide-details h2 { font-size:1.5em; font-style: italic; font-weight:normal; line-height: 1; margin:0; }
.slide-details .description { margin-top:10px; }

.jFlowControl, .jFlowPrev, .jFlowNext { color:#FFF; cursor:pointer; padding-left:5px; padding-right:5px; padding-top:2px; padding-bottom:2px; }
.jFlowControl:hover, .jFlowPrev:hover, .jFlowNext:hover { background: #43A0D5; }
.article-info { border-bottom: 1px solid #F9A159; border-top: 1px solid #F9A159; background: #F9F1E0;}
.article-info dd{float: left; margin: 0px 5px;}
