Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Hi,

I’m at my wits end trying to create a simple category-based gallery pulled from custom field #1 as I’ve done before. This is what I use:

<txp:smd_gallery category="?custom1">
<a href="{url}" title="{title}"><img src="{thumburl}" alt="{alt}" /></a>
</txp:smd_gallery>

…and it doesn’t ouput anything.

I copied this straight from another installation where it’s working fine. If I replace ?custom1 with an actual category name the gallery appears.

I checked over and over again, that the category is assigned to the images and correctly typed into cf#1, but no go.

Any ideas?

(Txp 4.0.8, smd_gallery 0.51, smd_lib 0.36)

2 masa: maybe you should try {custom_1} (underscore)

If the_ghost’s suggestion doesn’t work, try the actual name of your custom field, e.g. category="?gallery_images".

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Thanks, Victor & Stef,

{custom_1} didn’t work, but category="?gallery_images" did – hooray!

I also tracked down the reason: on the local install, where I could use custom1, I had never bothered to rename the field, so its name is actually custom1.

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

This is probably the dumbest question I ever asked, but I just cant find the way to do it!
I am using this as my gallery_nav form:

{navprev}{navthis} of {totalpages}{navnext}

and is displaying something like this:
«
1
of 3
»

but want something like this:
« 1 of 3 »

you can see what I mean here:

Can you wrap the nav in a wrapper div and then use a clear:both CSS rule on the wrapper to position the whole lot under the thumbs? That might give you some more space to play with so it’ll stop wrapping.

mlarino —

Have you tried giving your “empty” div a float:left ? Seems like it might be a float issue.

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Or without float: #navgaleria div {display: inline}

But you can:

{navprev: <img src=“http://www.xxxx.xx/image_left.png” />}

{navnext: <img src=“http://www.xxxx.xx/image_right.png” />}

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Yes, you are right!

but, why cant that be used with {navprevpageurl} ?
That way the image will disapear if there is no next or previous pages…. :(
