Categories Images

Hi,

I am trying to figure out how to pull each image folders from the categories. I looked through the documentation on <txp:images/>and <txp:image/>, still not able to pull the category images from each folder. Can someone help me please or point me where to get abetter understanding. Thank you

Folder-name-a (images)
Folder-name-b (images)

This does not works with category

<txp:images category='<txp:category />' >
 <txp:image />
 </txp:images>

This works with a single category name

<txp:images category='landscape-image' >
 <txp:image />
 </txp:images>

Re: Categories Images

Your first example will work if the article category is the same as the image category

The second example will work anywhere but double-quotes are advised:

<txp:images category="landscape-image">
<txp:image />
</txp:images>

What I do not understand is your question about folders. txp does not create any folders for images.

Re: Categories Images

When you go to content->categories->images section, you have to type a name to create a new category. Maybe I am not using the right term, but it create a new category list in the images column. I am trying to have the category return a lists.

category-a
category-b
category-c

Re: Categories Images

I’m not sure what you’re trying to accomplish. Do you want to display every image from every image category?

Yes, every image category with an image from each list.

Re: Categories Images

I think you manually have to type every category name then, separated by a comma:

<txp:images category="category-a, category-b, category-c">
<txp:image />
</txp:images>

Re: Categories Images

You can try this

<txp:images category='<txp:category_list type="image" break="," />'>
    <txp:image />
</txp:images>

or this

<txp:category_list type="image" break="">
    <txp:category title wraptag="h3" />
    <txp:images category='<txp:category />'>
        <txp:image />
    </txp:images>
</txp:category_list>

Re: Categories Images

Thank you for your time and help etc. So category_list and category are global tag.
