I want to be able to display multiple stories from a list on my home page, like a gallery. Eash story will have a graphic assoicated with it. the layout would be like a table 4 x 2 or something similiar. The stories should could come from a number of different list in sharepoint.

Any ideas on a webpart or solution for this?

Thanks

Have you considered using the standard Content Query Web Part? –  Waldek Mastykarz Mar 5 '13 at 18:28

this could be achieved in several ways depending on how you prefer to work. It could be done using SP UI, creating a view of the news list and displaying the news items as you require them.

Alternatively you could develop a web-part which reads the news list and displays the content in a simple repeater or even utilise some JQUERY to animate the content, a little bit like the image below.

There is also the excellent RSS Feed Web Part for Office 365 from Rene Modery which can be found here.

Hope this helps.

Hi Thanks for the above. I already have someting like that but now need a gallery so all stories have equal importance. Each story might come from different lists. As a thought, could create aspx page as you suggested with jquery using Iframe to add to home page? –  Raj Chahal Mar 5 '13 at 13:48

Yes you could create your own aspx page and display using the IFRAME method but if you are referencing SP lists then a web part would be better i think. –  Stephen Mar 5 '13 at 14:01

I've created an aspx page with Iframe. Seems to work well but not portable!
