Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Dimitri

Does this work:

<txp:smd_gallery category="?category" objectform="gallery">
	{object}
</txp:smd_gallery>

It uses an smd_gallery-specific feature of using the ? to grab stuff from various places in the current article/URL. The category name is the current ‘global’ category that is in effect for the current article (in other words ?c=cat-name or /category/cat-name in the URL). Note that this is different (at least in TXP < 4.3.0) to the image category so if you want to make the article category display the corresponding image category you need to create the same category names in both.

For more on this, and further examples of what you can now do in TXP 4.3.0 with the URL and images, see Jeff Soo’s excellent textpattern gallery demo.

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Hi

No it doesnt work.

<txp:smd_gallery category="?category" objectform="gallery">
	{object}
</txp:smd_gallery>

It would be great if I was able to do this category="<txp:category />"

I am also trying out the 4.3 core tags but the funny thing is I achieved what i want with this
<txp:image_index /> <txp:image_display /> but it is limited

The link you gave me to the Jeff Soo gallery, its great but it’s a very bad doc. The javascript code is missing, tried copy it off from the source code and it wont work. Also <txp:image_list /> is outdated but i know it had been changed to <txp:images />

but I need you to tell me how to do this, just any example
if I am on the url like this
localhost/galley/?c=album1
localhost/galley/?c=album2
localhost/galley/?c=album3

I want to use the tag something like this
<txp:images category=”???” /> how can I make the category auto-detect the name of the category and display it, I have tried auto_detect=“images”, no clue what it is for.
Do I have to use < variable /> or something

Thanx

****
My point is, I need to make this flexible, the client must be able to create many categories as they like, the code had to be flexible so I dont have to keep coming back to code for them.

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

You can do: category="<txp:category />"
But you have to do it this way: category='<txp:category />'
When nesting TXP tags in TXP tags, you have to escape the quotes by using single quotes.

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

I’m trying

<txp:smd_gallery category="animals" sublevel="all" limit="1" sort="random">
<a href="<txp:site_url />{title}"><img src="{url}" alt="{alt}" /></a>
</txp:smd_gallery>

but the {title} attribute is not parsed. What I get is a link to the site url.

Can anybody spot what’s wrong with my code?

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Hi colak.

{title} is for displaying the image caption. From when you upload the image, and you add some texts in the “Caption” textarea

I dont know what you are trying to achieve with your code. Try something like this, to open the image to an new window.

<txp:smd_gallery category="animals" sublevel="all" limit="1" sort="random">
    <a href="{url}"><img src="{url}" alt="{alt}" /></a>
    <p>{title}</p>
</txp:smd_gallery>

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Hi dimitri,

Thanks for the reply

I am trying to link the image to a particular page not to itself.

What I expected to get is

<a href="http://mysite.tld/title"><img src="images/x.jpg" alt="my alt tag" width="230" height="300" /></a>

Shouldn’t it work with <txp:article_url_title /> since you’re calling the gallery from within an article?

I’m not. I’m calling it from within a template. But I still don’t understand why {title} is not parsed.

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Like I said in my previous post, {title} merely outputs the text. It definitely will not work if you try make a link with this attribute.

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

well the strange thing is that it seems that it is not parsed at all even when I use

<txp:smd_gallery category="animals" sublevel="all" limit="1" sort="random">
<txp:image id="{id}" />
<br />{title}
</txp:smd_gallery>

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Make sure when you upload an image in the backend, you must add some texts in the “Caption” textarea.
It will be parsed, also wrap it around in <p> for the CSS.
