Re: wlk_mp

Actually, the arrangement varies based on the number of images you select (up to 8).

First two features up next for implementation:

  1. Category-based image selection
  2. Image pop-ups.

Things that comes later:

  • Images by full urls?
  • Better control of css and xhtml on image output.

I’m drinking the 10 pin porter, but of course.

Re: wlk_mp

Hi Walker,
Your plugin has inspired me to try Textpattern (I’ve been working with Wordpress).
I understand how to install the plug-in, insert the tags etc..
I’ve been digging around, but I can’t figure out what I need to do with the PHP file to ‘upload via the files tab’. I’m sure it’s obvious – but I’m lost.
I’d be grateful for a push in the right direction.
Thanks
Amy

I Haven’t used the plugin – but just to help out here – the ‘Files’ tab is under ‘Content’. You should make sure your /files has appropriate permissions – if in doubt – click on the ‘Diagnostics’ tab under ‘Admin’

Re: wlk_mp

Thanks for you help Vitruvius,
I was able to find the ‘files’ tab – set permissions etc.
I’m just clueless as to what to do with the PHP file that comes with the plug-in.

This would be perfect for a site I’m working on – I’ll be so happy when I can make this work.
In the meantime – I’m enjoying playing with Textpattern.

Re: wlk_mp

Hi Amy, I haven’t actually installed this plugin yet as I didn’t yet have need, but I will soon and if I learn a thing or two I’ll report.

Re: wlk_mp

Thanks Destry!
I can’t believe I didn’t try to upload the php file straight through the files panel. duh
Goes to show – you can’t really over explain.

The site I want to use this for is down at the moment – but I’ll report as soon as I can try this. – If I can make it work – it will be perfect for the project.

Re: wlk_mp

Yeah, when I wrote the thing, I wanted to make it as easy as possible to install, so I didn’t want ftp to come into the equation. This way, you just use txp’s own file manager.

Re: wlk_mp

Ok everyone, I updated the plugin…..you can select images by specifying a category=“put category name here” within the tag or make a custom field called “magcategory” and put the category you want in the field from the article you wish to call…..if no images are found, nothing is output and there is next to no drain on resources…..also, I was writing the new version really stupidly and making multiple calls on the db. Ifyou use category to specify images, it only makes one db call, whereas specifying images by id makes (ummm…I’m sorry to admit) 2 calls to the db per image. (I’ll fix that little bit later.)

yup. (links are same as before….)

Re: wlk_mp

Oh, a word of warning, it only really handles jpegs……I had a png in there and it acted okay but the gd output was a black box….if you refresh this url you will occasionally see the black box….(it’s supposed to be a graph…)

Re: wlk_mp

OK – I managed to get it working – sort of – looks a bit odd though.
I’ve tried a few different combos and sizes, but it never looks quite right. no padding – or just odd layouts
I literally just threw up a textpattern site just default styling etc – perhaps when I have more time to play with it – I’ll figure out what’s going on.

In all though – very cool easy to use (with brain switched on) – Hopefully, I can make it work
