How easy is it to duplicate this functionality: jquery image gallery

Piece of cake :-) Include the javascript and css he specifies in your page head then use:

<ul id="demoOne">
 <txp:smd_gallery category="blah1, blah2">
   <li><img src="{url}" /></li>
 </txp:smd_gallery>
</ul>

I’m considering expanding the tag set so you can bring the ‘id’ into the plugin as well (helps with multiple galleries per page) but that’s going to require some more thought. For now, the code there will get you going.

EDIT: schoolboy error in the code. Fixed now.

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Hi Stef, just noticed that the smd_gallery I have here does not seem to render in IE6 and IE7 – any idea why? Fine in FF and Safari etc. Its using fancy zoom, but I don’t see a JS problem here…

Could it be the missing closing > on the anchor tag? Is that caused by one of my replacement tags or your form?

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Beats me! Tags like this are being produced:

<a href="http://domain.com/images/25.jpg" title="Bla bla" <img src="http://domain.com/images/25t.jpg" alt="bla" /></a>

On second look, the alt portion might be giving me the problem, with the self-closing tag: alt=“bla” />

I use a form to produce the gallery.

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

This is the form:

<a href="{url}" title="{title}" <img src="{thumburl}" alt="{alt}" /></a>

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Then I’d wager it’s the missing > after the title :-)

<a href="{url}" title="{title}"><img src="{thumburl}" alt="{alt}" /></a>

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Hi Stef,

Is it possible to do this:

- Show only 5 latest thumbnails from each category (Category title and below 5 thumbs)
- On click (using lightbox) show all images from clicked category (not just 5:)

Or even better, show only one thumb per category together with category title and then on click show complete gallery from that category.

Thanks!

You can now :-)

It was something I planned to do and never got round to it; you gave me a good reason to add it, so check out v0.4 [ compressed ]

Please note that the thumb attribute has changed slightly in this release. The help explains more but in a nutshell you can now use thumb to choose which size image you want to render for both the thumbnails and the fullsize pics. It works the same way as smd_slimbox.

The major additions in this release are:

  • thumbchange: allows you to ‘watch’ particular thumbnail attributes and display information only when they change
  • thumbchangewraptag / thumbchangeclass: to wrap a tag and class around such information
  • New replacement tags {thumbindex} and {thumbcounter} if you need them. The counters are reset each time one of your “watched” attributes changes
  • New replacement tags in the format {changed:some_attribute} that are only available when the given attribute is different from the previous thumbnail. The new replacement tags are linked to the thumbchange attribute, i.e. if you choose to “watch” category then one new tag ({changed:category}) becomes available every time the category changes. Combine this with the sort attribute for best results

So, fuls, to answer your question, you would now do this (see also example 6 in the help) :

<txp:smd_gallery category="blah, blah, blah" thumbchange="category_title" thumbchangewraptag="h3" form="gallery" thumblimit="1" />

and your gallery form:

{changed:category_title}
<a href="{url}" rel="lightbox-{category}">
{object}
</a>

Job done :-)

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

I agree, this gem of a plugin keeps evolving at a scary rate. :-)

I realised that one could even set up different types of galleries with individual forms and then use the form override option in the Write interface to select a specific one for individual articles.
