At this sample page only half of the image appears on popup. Nothing appears if you don’t hover the mouse on either side of the image.

On line 17 of you default stylesheet you’ve defined the background color for a:link, a:visited, a:active with #FFF. Remove that or make it more specific so it doesn’t affect the lightbox.

Yay. That solved it. Thank you Uli. :3

Re: smd_slimbox

Hi all. I’m having the same problem as a previous poster. When the image loads it’s only display half of it? I have up to date versions of all browsers and running OS X Lion. Seems that Safari is good, but Chrome and Firefox are playing up.

Any ideas?

Hey, just remove the background color of your links. That should do the trick. ;-)

Thanks for the reply. I don’t think I have a background colour on the links?

Ahhh I was using Slimbox v1 — have now updated to v2 and it’s fine.

Re: smd_slimbox

Hi,

I’m new to TXP, having just taken over a site. Adding Slimbox2 via smd_slimbox is the first thing I’ve done.
I’ve managed to get Slimbox2 working fine with this in my form:
<txp:smd_slimbox category="xmas_cards" imagecaption="?caption" thumbsize="65,65" />

However I want to make it easy to add further slideshows without having to make a separate form for each new category of images. So I created a custom field in my article template called “slideshow category”. In the Xmas cards article this is filled in as “xmas cards” in the hope I could do this:

<txp:smd_slimbox category="<txp:custom_field name="slideshow category" />" imagecaption="?caption" thumbsize="65,65" />

Doesn’t work, I get every image on the site in the slideshow. Is there an issue here, or do I have some sort of brain error? Is there a better way? We are on a fairly old version of TXP 4.1.something, scared to upgrade.

Incidentally I am using the slidshow version of Slimbox2 (runs through images on a timer) from http://www.wmiles.com/2011/10/slimbox2-slideshow – works wonderfully, though I had to minify it before it worked.

Re: smd_slimbox

Tags as tag’s values must be surrounded by single quotes:

<txp:smd_slimbox category='<txp:custom_field name="slideshow category" />' imagecaption="?caption" thumbsize="65,65" />

From there things will, at least, be easier.

Edit: Hasty again! Can’t tell any more if custom fields in category will work, it’s been too long.

Re: smd_slimbox

Are spaces allowed in custom field names? According to an FAQ

It’s a good idea to use a name that is lowercase and contains no spaces.

Re: smd_slimbox

Thanks both. I just tried with no spaces (changed to underscores) and single quotes around the tag-in-tag, and it still doesn’t work.. Is it me, or TXP? :) (I mean : Yes, I changed the custom field in admin to slideshow_category as well as in the form).

FWIW, before posting I already checked that (txp:custom_ field name="slideshow category" /> returned the value on the page, xmas_cards, so it’s just the context as input to smd_slimbox that seems iffy
