Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

Looking at the SQL image table, I see the image and thumb etc are there , but no URL associated…isn’t there meant to be a table for that?

I have these fields, only:

name, category , ext , w, h, alt , caption, date, author, thumbnail.

Well, I tried substituting the <img src=”…> code for <txp:custom_field name=“Image-ID” /> and placed <txp:image id=“2” /> in the Image-ID custom-field

But still no success- an empty string. I can only think there must be a problem with the SQL and image urls, returning an empty field.

Why aren’t using the article image field instead of the custom field? And why are you trying to place the <txp:image id="2" /> inside the custom field? It doesn’t make sense.

You could also use <txp:article_image />-tag that works together with the article image-inputfield.

And there shouldn’t be a url-field in the database, as the actual url is made from the ID-value dynamically. And the id is same as the rows value.

It works like with txp:article_image and txp:image tag like:

  1. You insert the id to the field.
  2. It searches the correct row with that id.
  3. It returns the extension, width and caption form the db.
  4. And creates the link with values from preferences at db, and inserts the caption if requested.

So no url field is in the database. And the width is inserted to the database automatically with PHP+GD-magic.

But if you mean that you want to use and link images to somewhere else, you could check some plugins, like rah_aimage that adds linking support to article_image.

Cheers!

Thanks for that, i think it’s what I needed to know…i misunderstood the instructions.

And why are you trying to place the <txp:image id="2" /> inside the custom field? It doesn’t make sense.

That was to test the custom field and image id, by substituting with a tag to cal the image url, which would normally work in field, or so i thought, from reading other discussions.

And there shouldn’t be a url-field in the database, as the actual url is made from the ID-value dynamically. And the id is same as the rows value.

yes i realised that, upon reflection.

But if you mean that you want to use and link images to somewhere else, you could check some plugins, like rah_aimage that adds linking support to article_image.

Thanks I could use that, possibly.

Cheers!

Re: Widescreen, a photoblog template

*HI, Gocom, *

A quick note, because I haven’t quite nailed it yet, I checked the instructions again, and they say:

Click on the Write tab. Enter your title, caption, and use the custom fields to specify the Image ID (just the number) and the Image Color (a hexadecimal code without the # sign).

The relevant code from forms.article (default and archive) are:

<img src=”<txp:site_url />
images/<txp:custom_field name=“Image-ID” />t.jpg”
alt=“Thumbnail of <txp:title />”

<div id=“photo”>
<txp:link_to_prev showalways=“1”><img src=”<txp:site_url />images/
<txp:custom_field name=“Image-ID” />.jpg”
alt=”<txp:title />” /></txp:link_to_prev>

Am I misunderstanding something? I mean, are you saying the instructions are outdated, and the custom field isn’t needed, but I should use the article-image filed, and change the code in the default and archive forms accordingly, to <txp:article_image />
?

LO! it works for the form.default/current page…..
But not for the archive page, when substituting <txp:thumbnail />, because of course there is no reference to the article-image’s thumbnail. So, I substitute the code in the form=archive with <txp:permlink><txp:article_image thumbnail=“1” /></txp:permlink>

And LO! it all works perfectly.
BAsically, you can’t have txp tags inside txp tags, that’s why the code in the widescreen download(v.1.0 and v.0.8) didn’t work for me. SO how on earth did it work for anyone? I conclude that the custom-field “Image-ID” isn’t required, nor useful.

I’ve been working with textpattern for 1 week now. A sharp learning curve , but I think well worth it, it is great.

John

Hi Kevin.

Ok I knew that one. I was playing around in the backend trying to completely remove everything but the picture gallery, until anyone could tell some more about the css problem or whatever’. I never found a link to your gallery, so i assumed you had removed the total ‘lower end’ of the site by a fancy trick.

Its a bit of a work to start going on with adding a lot of pictures, if the problem continues or can’t be solved. in 1024×800 it looks almost ok, but in 1280×1024 problem starts.

Regards ulves
