While searching for a simple image gallery plugin I ended up wanting to use certain features of both the cgd_dynagallery plugin and the dca_pop plugin. After hacking away for a while I decided to start anew and the DynaGallery became the basis for this plugin.
Here are the major functions of the plugin:
I still plan to make some more additions to this so any feedback is appreciated as usual.

Thanks Rob – this looks great. I have already installed it and will have a working version soon.
One feature that would be cool (for those of us with >lots< of images) would be the ability to set a limit to the number of images shown per page. You would then have to have back,next navigation to show additional images on subsequent pages (does that sentence make sense).
Vitruvius – Yep, makes sense. Adding the ability to use paging was next on my list. I’m working on it now.
The plugin is now at version 0.2 and supports paging with the use of the <code><txp:newer></code> and <code><txp:older></code> tags. The plugin will even automatically output the links for you if you want.

This is really sweet! Nice job.
I started playing with it and have found a couple problems (tho it’s probably me…)
1. When using the mode=“float” and cols=“2” – the columns still display 3 not 2 or any other number I assign.
2. The showpagelinks are not working for me… not sure what to do to make them work. I used the styling you posted – but in the source there arent any <back or next> (which i did specify in the tag.
Maybe you could make your demo one that does everything and people can choose what to utilize or leave out…
Just some thoughts.
To even the least of these…
1. I’ve tested using that configuration and don’t seem to have that problem.
2. The page links will only show if you have a limit set and they will show by default if that limit is set.
Somthing like this should work for you:
<txp:rss_thumbpop category=“pix” mode=“float” cols=“2” limit=“4” /></code>
If not, can you show me how you’re calling the tag and show me I page I can look at if possible?
Cool. Thanks. Point 2 is working… point one still doesnt display…
calling it like this: < txp:rss_thumbpop category=“photos” mode=“float” label=“My Pictures” backlabel=”< back” nextlabel=“next >” cols=“1” limit=“2” nopop=“0” />
still displays 2 columns… but that is okay… just noticed it.
To even the least of these…
If this is the exact cut and paste from your code, the problem is the “smart quotes” on the last 3 attributes. I just tried it without them and got 1 column with 2 rows.
<txp:rss_thumbpop category=“photos” mode=“float” label=“My Pictures” backlabel=”< back” nextlabel=“next >” cols=“1” limit=“2” nopop=“0” />
btw, nopop=“0” is the default so you don’t have to specify that if you want popups.
wilshire – well done :)
Your timing is impeccable!
Not sure why the line breaks are so big – I am using the float mode and notice you are using a br tag to start a new line. It must be picking up some line spacing from on of the divs it is within.
PS I also edited dca_popup to get rid of the scrollbars and try to get an even border of white around the pic.
