Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Hi,
Great plugin!
I’m having a problem with the launch from one image.

This is my plugin tag:

<txp:smd_gallery category=“animals”
sublevel=“all” form=“gallery” thumblimit=“1” />

Form:

<a rel=“shadowbox[{category}]” href=”{url}” alt=”{alt}” title=”{category_title}: {title}” height=”{height}” width=”{width}”>
{object}
</a>

Form outputs the following code (there are currently 2 photos in this category):

<a rel=“shadowbox[Animals]” href=“http://my-site.com/images/12.jpg” alt=“Image” title=“Animals:Image” height=“595” width=“800”>
<img src=“http://my-site.com/images/12t.jpg” alt=“Image” />
</a>

<a rel=“shadowbox[Animals]” href=“http://my-site.com/images/11.jpg” alt=“Image” title=“Animals: Image” height=“587” width=“800”>
</a>

As you can see the second link is empty and it is causing me some problems. I see all the css styling for the link (background color, border), and of course no image.
What can I do to remove that?
I’m also getting validation output errors:

there is no attribute “alt”.
there is no attribute “height”.
there is no attribute “width”.

Thank you very much for your help!

Ha! That would be my fault. The example is wrong (stupid copy ‘n’ paste error that I messed up). The validator is right: take out the alt=, height= and width= from the <a> tag.

You may also find that fixes the CSS, although it is a side-effect of the way the {object} tag works. What it does is “hides” the other images by not putting anything inside the anchor. I suggest what you do is wrap the smd_gallery call with a div (or use wraptag / class attributes) then change your CSS so it targets the img inside the anchor. That way, you’ll only be applying the CSS rule if the img is present.

So something like:

<div class="thumbs">
 <txp:smd_gallery blah blah />
</div>
.thumbs img {
  width:100px;
  background:#555;
...
}

Sorry about the bogus example in the help. I’ll fix that as soon as I can.

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

I liked this plugin too :)
P.S. Should you add link to 0.33 to the head of topic?

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

@fuls: excellent. Sorry about the poor documentation.

@the_ghost. Oops, thanks for pointing that out. Updated now. I’d forgotten to update textpattern.org too.

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

how do you output the thumbnail’s width and height (into the img tag) when thumbnails can be different sizes?

e.g. you wanted to approximate something like this – where your landscape and portrait thumbs sat centered in a slide frame

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

1. can attr class="empty" be added to li items which don’t have a link? It’s like ob1_pagination works :)
2. Is there variable, like {totalimages}, which shows not the amount of displaying images per current page but counts all images, that should be displayed if limit attr is omitted?

Currently you can’t :-( And that layout looks very good too!

Since TXP doesn’t store thumbnail dimensions you can only rely on the sizes they are stored in the file system when you upload them. I think you can modify the thumbnail sizes yourself from the images tab on a file-by-file basis (or use the glx_admin_image plugin). Alternatively lam_dynamic_image may help you in this case.

I did consider a hack that reads the current thumbnail sizes and determines the orientation, then applies max width/height restrictions via thumbsize so you could perform such a layout BUT it incurs significant time penalties since each image’s meta data has to be read in turn.

Yes it’s possible. I should probably do it, thanks for the advice.

Not yet, but I will add this for you.

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

New version 0.34 (compressed) that fixes a small SQL parenthesis bug and adds the emptyclass attribute and the {maximages} replacement tag.

emptyclass defaults to “empty”, and {maximages} can be used in both thumbnail and paging forms. The help has been updated to make it slightly clearer what each image count tag does, as the names are a little confusing at times!

Thanks to the_ghost for the ideas.

Bloke:

I may take the plunge with your new version. How easy is it to duplicate this functionality: jquery image gallery
