Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Also, get rid of any tag faults that might be on your page, I see a superfluous " and the rest of a tag />, these can confuse the parsers.

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

uli, thank you so much! You were very helpful! asy_wondertag does the trick. Great.
Those superfluous characters were the result of incorrect tag nesting.
Now I think smd_gallery turns to something totally almighty :)

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

This is a little offtopic, but do you know a good replacement of <txp:category_list type="image" /> for displaying a linked list of image categories? I need to exclude some cats and also apply formatting for nested cats. Usually such plugins work with article cats only…

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

I know about two plugins offering image category listing, upm_category_image and mah_lib_category_array. Have a look if one of them supports what you need.

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Uli, thanks for the links. upm_category_image doesn’t seem to be able to do what I want and mah_lib_category_array is not a tag plugin. Right now I don’t want to dive into php for this and also it seems there’s no way to apply formatting for nested cats. So I stick to <txp:category_list type="image" /> for now.
Another question on smd_gallery if you don’t mind. How do I show all images, but exclude images that doesn’t belong to any category (empty)?

A very good question! If you use a category (any category) then it will automatically exclude them, but if you only want to show images in a gallery that are categorized I don’t think the plugin can do it… yet. I could (probably) add some special trigger that allowed you to include or exclude uncategorized images but for now the best I can offer is to use the conditional plugin smd_if. Your gallery tag:

<txp:smd_gallery form="only_cats" />

When no category or id attributes are specified, that tells the plugin to extract all images. Then in the only_cats form:

<txp:smd_if field="NULL" operator="not" value="{category}">
  // The category is NOT empty so put smd_gallery tags in here
</txp:smd_if>

I’ve not tested that, but it should work by checking if the {category} is empty and skipping those records. I’ll add some native way of including/excluding uncategorized images on the ToDo list for the next revision. Thanks for spotting the problem!

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Bloke, thank you for your suggestion, but actually I found an easy way :)
I just put category=”!asdfg” where asdfg is non-existent category and it does the trick. It displays all images assigned to some cat and skips those without a cat. Great!
But a native way of including/excluding uncategorized images would be very useful!

Neat solution, thanks for sharing. I never even thought of (ab)using the attribute like that; excellent! I’ll certainly look into a way of making it less, umm, hacky in the next rev, though :-)

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

anyone else get this?

am using custom field named “Showcase” to hold integers … calling that field like so:

<txp:smd_gallery id="?Showcase" form="smd_gallery" />

here is the form:

<a rel="lightbox[{category}]" href="{url}" alt="{alt}"
     title="{title}" >
 <txp:thumbnail id="{id}" />
</a>

there is output on screen… but each thumb is output 3 times! 5 integers, 15 thumbs displayed…

when outputting the images by a category name, behaviour is normal

PS in your first example in the docs there’s a width and height added to the anchor tag; shouldn’t be there right?

Nuts, a confirmed bug. In the process of fixing the problem highlighted by robin746 I broke the code for the situation you mention here. I’ll have to go back and rethink my SQL statement and see if I can come up with some way of fixing it for both scenarios. Thanks for letting me know about this.

In the meantime, if you roll back to v0.44 that should work as you expect. Just make sure you have your images in categories or it’ll not work!

Correct, I thought I’d fixed that but I must have forgotten. Thanks for pointing it out, I’ll change it.

Re: smd_gallery: super-flexible gallery generator

Hello,

First of all, thanks for a great plugin (as usual with you Stef).

I have a small problem with wrapping p-tags around the gallery tag.
When I insert this

<txp:smd_gallery category="galleri" sublevel="all" form="gallerier" wraptag="div" />

I get p-tags wrapping the gallery’s div. The reason why I need the div is for clearing the floated thumbnails in case there are content below the thumbs.

Any ideas?

Thanks! :)
