Verticle tile using promotion list in SharePoint 2013

We have seen in my earlier post. on how to create tiles menu in SharePoint 2013.

But what if you want these tiles in vertical order. There are two ways to achieve this. The one using jquery and other using CSS.

jQuery Solution

<script type=“text/javascript” src=“http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.10.2.min.js “></script>
<script type=“text/javascript”>
$(document).ready(function () {
// Update this value to the number of links you want to show per row
var numberOfLinksPerRow = 4;

// local variables
var pre = “<tr><td><div class=’ms-promlink-body’ id=’promlink_row_”;
var post = “‘></div></td></tr>”;
var numberOfLinksInCurrentRow = numberOfLinksPerRow;
var currentRow = 1

// find the number of promoted links we’re displaying
var numberOfPromotedLinks = $(‘.ms-promlink-body > .ms-tileview-tile-root’).length;

// if we have more links then we want in a row, let’s continue
if (numberOfPromotedLinks > numberOfLinksPerRow) {

// we don’t need the header anymore, no cycling through links
$(‘.ms-promlink-root > .ms-promlink-header’).empty();

// let’s iterate through all the links after the maximum displayed link
for (i = numberOfLinksPerRow + 1; i <= numberOfPromotedLinks; i++) {

// if we’re reached the maximum number of links to show per row, add a new row
// this happens the first time, with the values set initially
if (numberOfLinksInCurrentRow == numberOfLinksPerRow) {

// i just want the 2nd row to

// create a new row of links
$(‘.ms-promlink-root > table > tbody:last’).append(pre + currentRow + post);

// reset the number of links for the current row
numberOfLinksInCurrentRow = 0}

// move the Nth (numberOfLinksPerRow + 1) div to the current table row
 $(‘#promlink_row_’ + currentRow).append($(‘.ms-promlink-body > .ms-tileview-tile-root:eq(‘ + (numberOfLinksPerRow) + ‘)’));

// increment the number of links in the current row
numberOfLinksInCurrentRow++; Â }

This uses the CDN at jquery.com, so if your server does not have internet access you will need to copy this file locally.
Note that you can set the number of columns to wrap the quick links. This is the major advantage of using the jQuery script over the CSS.



width: 100%;

Nice and simple. Great for a one column left or right nav.
