Our 3D model, Horizon, is inspired by Xena, the Warrior Princess.
Xena is an American–New Zealand supernatural fantasy adventure series that aired in syndication from September 4, 1995 until June 18, 2001.
The series was created in 1995 by writer-director-producer Robert Tapert under his production tag, Renaissance Pictures with later co-executive producers being John Schulian, R. J. Stewart and Sam Raimi. The series narrative follows Xena (played by Lucy Lawless), a warrior in a quest to seek redemption for her past sins as a ruthless warlord by using her formidable fighting skills to help people. Xena is accompanied by Gabrielle (played by Renée O'Connor), who during the series changes from a simple farm girl into an Amazon warrior and Xena's greatest ally; her initial naïveté helps to balance Xena and assists her in recognizing and pursuing the "greater good."
Why Xena? Well, Xihna, the WYSIWYG editor whom we use with Horizon, is named after the Warrior Princess and Horizon wouldn't be here today if this WYSIWYG editor wasn't available for the open-source community.
Furthermore, Horizon is an open-source project as well.
What you see here is the new JQuery plug-in that I adopted in Horizon because I think that you can use a feature like this on your own site. I programmed a simple PHP wizard so that it's easy to create a news page like this. It only took 5 minutes.
The news widget is available since Horizon QCMS 3.5.
