more than one Article Image

I searched but without finding a definitive answer one way or the other.
I want the user to be able to place 2-3 images to each article. I was hoping that one could have multiple

<txp:article_image />  

tags.

But i don’t think this is allowed at present.Would love to be proven wrong. Or perhaps there is another user-proof way of accomplishing this?

And somewhat related, if one wants to have each article page have an additional image or two to appear outside the article div …such as in a side bar or under a category list would this have to be done via custom fields? Again the user would be able to add /change the image on a per article basis.

Re: more than one Article Image

You could use the excerpt field and set variables for each of the image URLs:

<txp:variable name="image-url-a" value="http://example.com/images/lemon.png" />
<txp:variable name="image-url-b" value="http://example.com/images/grape.png" />
<txp:variable name="image-url-c" value="http://example.com/images/peach.png" />

Edit: typo

Re: more than one Article Image

You can put a comma seperated list of image ids in the article image field and use <txp:images/> to output them. There are plugins to allow picking multiple images.

That shows one of my examples (above).

In this context a solution is create a macro with smd_macro. So you have an own tag, which you can use where you want. The images on this blog were inserted this way or by using a comma separated image list in the article image field.

Sorry GugUser, I think I started replying before your reply was posted, then got distracted and took for ever to hit submit.

No problem, it was only a supplementary comment.

This is undocumented but it was mentioned a lot of times in this forum. The article image field can currently hold more than one comma separated id which can be called with

<txp:images id='<txp:custom_field name="article_image"/>' wraptag="ul" break="li" class="some class" limit="3"><txp:image /></txp:images>

Re: more than one Article Image

As colak mentions in his method above, its undocumented but mentioned several times. There are a few other tips to check, and the method above is outlined here.
