Re: soo_image: simple yet powerful image tags

I’m loving this plugin, especially its intuitive analogy to <txp:article /> tags.

I’m wondering if there is any way to, rather than select via image_id, actually output an image’s id? Or, alternatively, count <txp:soo_image_select /> iterations, so I could output a unique, sequential id with the images, like id="photo-1", etc.

Re: soo_image: simple yet powerful image tags

Thanks for the kind words. Adding soo_image_id is a trivial edit, so it’s now available in version 1.0.b.4.

Re: soo_image: simple yet powerful image tags

Awesome! Thanks so much for the addition and the lightning-fast response. Do you have a Paypal account I could donate to? Looked for a button on your site, but didn’t see one…

Re: soo_image: simple yet powerful image tags

Hi Jeff,

Your plugin looks great but I must be having “one of those days”. My code is:

<txp:soo_image_select id="9,5,7,17,8,18,19,6,10,20,21,22">
	<txp:soo_image width="0" />
	<txp:soo_image_caption />
</txp:soo_image_select>

but the <img /> tags that are generated still contain the width & height attributes.

… and I have a request. Could the <txp:soo_image_caption /> have a wraptag attribute? Some of my images have captions, some don’t. So if there’s a caption then output it inside the wraptag, if not, output nothing.

Thanks,

Adi

Re: soo_image: simple yet powerful image tags

Adi: thanks for the bug report and request. Version 1.0.b.5 now available; <txp:soo_image width="0" /> should now work as expected, and all of the tags for outputting image info now accept standard wraptag, class, and html_id attributes.

Jeff, you’re a star, thanks. Does the job very nicely.

All the best,

Adi

Re: soo_image: simple yet powerful image tags

Hi Jeff,

Just been trying soo_image within an article form. Have I got this right?

Standard TXP:

<txp:article>
	<txp:image />
</txp:article>

Using soo_image:

<txp:article>
	<txp:soo_image_select>
		<txp:soo_image width="0" />
	</txp:soo_image_select>
</txp:article>

I always hope that plugins reduce the amount of typing! Am I missing something?

Cheers,

Adi

Re: soo_image: simple yet powerful image tags

If you’re looking for the equivalent of this:

<txp:article>
	<txp:article_image />
</txp:article>

You can use this as a shortcut:

<txp:article>
	<txp:soo_image />
</txp:article>

because soo_image, outside a soo_image_select and without identifiers (i.e., name or id attribute) automatically picks up the (first) article image.
