New version of the plugin:
Added 2 attributes to the bos_subcat_image_index tag:
This should allow for better nested albums.
txp:bos_subcat_image_indexnow only display the first level children of cat, as it should be. This change the old behavior. If you want all sub-(sub-sub…)subcat displayed, as before, use the new “allchildren=‘1’” attribute. Default is empty, don’t use it if you want the default. Maybe in the future a better adjustment on the number of subcat level to display will be done…
New version (august 2006):
Added ‘to_section’ attribute to the bos_image_index tag. It allows you to link the thumbs to another section. Useful if you want a preview in home page to point to full-image in a specific section.
Bugfix to the bos_subcat_image_index tag. Update if you’re using that tag.
Minor bugfix in debug mode. No real need to update for live sites, but, anyway, if you want you’re welcome.
Added some attributes and capabilities:
Minor bug fix. It shouldn’t affect the most of the cases, and in the few cases you may not notice it. But you’d better update, you never knows…
Some major improvements:
Added the capability to define the class attribute for title and caption tags for better styling. Default provided. You can also disable the classes if you don’t want the default. See the help for details.
Bugfix version. Corrected ampersand in url to validate xhtml. Set index limit to 9999, tying to avoid some oddities in some version of php/mySql.
Note: v.3 is not fully backward compatible with 2.0, because the ‘c’ attribute has been renamed in ‘cat’ (there were reasons). Check the template, if you used it.
Out of the box you can use it as a way to have image gallery by category, displayed where you want, without to deal with articles and/or article images. Just organize your images in category (even nested, for which you may find useful the bos_if_cat_parent plugin, build together to this one).
Basically this is a replacement of original image_index and image_display couple of tag, or as a single tag to list images from a certain category with some facilities like the capability of having title (name) and caption of images displayed. Some of the features are:
Any test would be apreciated. I’m pretty sure that there is some bug here, because I haven’t been able to intensively test it. So please report bugs and suggestions.

Just to assure you that at least someone is interested ;) I intend to test this, but I may not have the time before the weekend.

No problem. :) It answers to someone’s problem, but I think that a few people knows the original txp:image_display and txp:image_index tags. They are very useful for creating simple galleries, but lack of features (captions, fullsize listing, link or not, etc.). I’m just trying to expand their possibilities, to have galleries without having to create articles.
It works for me. I may evaluate adding limit and offset attributes, which may be useful. Maybe it will take some days because ‘ll be out of office tomorrow. Anyway, if you have comments, you’re welcome.
This plugin is working fine, thanks. I am going to see if I can replace some plugins I am using now for my simpler galleries with this one.
A sortby attribute would be nice ;)
I’m glad you find it useful.
At the moment I’m working on some improvement of the plugin, according to the requests from a client of mine. I’ve already added some attributes and functionality. The sortby is already in my development version, with two options: name and posted. Do you think some other options may be useful?
I’m adding also a offset and limit options to the bos_image_index tag. More than this I’m adding some options to navigate with prev and next link near the photos, and some conditional tags to better organize the galleries in subcategories.
In the next week I hope to release the new version. If you have some suggestions, you’re welcome.
great work zanza… re: sortby – maybe add ‘caption’ as an attribute? if you don’t use caption to display text, you could use it to order your images… ? but not very important really
Uhm… I have to think about it. A way to customize the order may be useful, but I don’t know if to use the caption in that way could be confusing or result in some algorithmic trouble… :) I doubt I can think of it for the next release, anyway, but I will start thinking.
Anyway, you could use the name for this, right now. Maybe it could be useful an option to strip a starting string from the name, if you have a prefix number as an order key, so that the number won’t be displayed?
Thank for your comment! :)
