Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Hmmm, I think that’s a byproduct of the if_different tag. I think it’s being processed first before the plugin tags. You might be better off adding onchange="category_title" to the smd_gallery tag and using:

<h2>{onchange:category_title}</h2>
{grouptagstart}
<a href="{url}" title="{title}">{object}</a>
{grouptagend}

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Nuts, I meant:

{onchange:category_title}
{grouptagstart}
<a href="{url}" title="{title}">{object}</a>
{grouptagend}

and use onchangewraptag="h2" as well

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Stef, what you post above did not quite work, so I now have this:

<txp:smd_gallery category="STA-Training, STA-Facilities, STA-Players, STA-Staff, STA-On-Tour" wraptag="div" class="thumbs" form="gallery" sort="fixed" grouptag="div" groupclass="contentbox" onchange="category_title" />

And form:

{grouptagstart}
<txp:if_different>
<h2>{category_title}</h2>
</txp:if_different>
<a href="{url}" title="{title}">{object}</a>
{grouptagend}

Please check the result in the page….looks ok to me!

Edit: I mean the previous example did not work – not tried your latest example.

The results are on the STA website

Yay!

But I have just spotted that it’s not in fact if_different, it’s my backwards logic at detecting when something has “changed”. Unfortunately it means — as you found — that if you put the {grouptagstart} under the {onchange}, it gets included in the next block instead of being on its own.

I think I know why it’s doing it but I gotta employ some brain power to figure a way round it. And I’ve just had some wine so my mind’s not on top form ;-)

If you can live with it for the time being I’ll see if I can patch it, sorry about the false start.

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Yeah I had two beers tonight so I have the same problem with my head :-)

Note I am now using the code from my previous post – #136. It would be good to figure a way to put the H2 outside of the contentbox div instead of inside it. I’ll think about that – when the beer wears off :-)

Yeah, I’m on the case. It’s an unfortunate side-effect of me trying to cut corners and do things the easy way instead of doing it properly :-/

The end and start tags are sandwiched together at all places except the first and last gallery so there ain’t nothin’ gettin’ between ‘em no matter how hard you try!

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Once more with feeling.

v0.44 | compressed should now work as advertised in the grouptag department.

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

I now have this in the form:

{onchange:category_title}
{grouptagstart}
<a href="{url}" title="{title}">{object}</a>
{grouptagend}

And you can see the result in the webpage. Thanks Stef! BTW – category ordering works great too with the fixed attribute.

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Hi again, thanks for you continuous help. I am trying to set up the smd_gallery with slideshow 2! for one image to fade into another image. Just two pictures. Here is my tag

<txp:smd_gallery id="29.gif, 30.gif" form="fade" wraptag="div" class="show" collate="quote:{imagedef}" />

and here is the form called ‘fade’

<div id="my_show" class="slideshow">
<img src="{imagepath#1}{imagedef#1}" alt="{alt#1}" />
</div>
<script type="text/javascript">
  var data = [{imagedef}];
  var myShow = new Slideshow('my_show', data, {controller: true, hu: '{imagepath#1}'});
</script>

i have the js and css loaded in the header, but nothing happens. thanks so much

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

immarabi:

Try taking the space out between the images in your smd_gallery tag id=“29.gif,30.gif”.

Also for kicks, use Bloke’s category tag insted of ID and see if that makes a difference.

Make sure you have the css and fade code I referenced earlier, and let us know.

As well as what progre55 suggested about the category attribute and the css/fade code, a couple of points:

  1. the spaces in the list shouldn’t make any difference (hehe, in theory, but I’m willing to be proved wrong!)
  2. However, the id attrbute must be just that: numeric IDs, not filenames with extensions :-)

Try removing the extensions and see if that helps.
