can't get aricolorbox.csv item onto slideshow 2 Years, 4 Months ago Karma: 0
I can't get the photographer's name to appear under the image in a Colorbox Anywhere slideshow. I have copied 'the works' of the settings for the plug-in, the Joomla! article source, the contents of the aricolorbox.csv file, etc to a text file as it is too much to put in this post. You can find it here:
tinyurl.com/nmgr728

Ive been using your image gallery/slideshow for years, but this is the first attempt to put caption/title etc. on it.
What am I missing and/or doing wrong?

Hello,

CSV file should be located in folder with images. For "System - ARI Colorbox Anywhere" plugin, use "descrFile" attribute of {aricolorbox} plugin tag. It should contain only name of description file. For example descrFile="aricolorbox.csv"

If it doesn't help, could you send a link to a page where the problem occurs?

Regards,
ARI Soft

I don't know how to send you a link to a registered page, and am unwilling to make it public and expose it on this forum.
I find the documentation of the use of the CSV file to be inadequate, specifically how to map a user-defined column to something that can be displayed on the slideshow. My intent was to display the photographer's name via a column named Photographer - the 4th column in the CSV. In the plug-in field ACOLORBOX_IMGLIST_LABEL_CAPTION I had tried putting the literal "Photographer:" followed by the name of the 4th CSV column - "Photographer" - thus
Code:

Photographer: {$Photographer}

Thinking that I might get the literal followed by the value from the CSV file. I only got "Photographer:".

I have abandoned that and instead put the photographer's name in the 3rd column - "Caption". I do not need a title, so the 2nd column has the value of " " (quote space quote) in each row.

Here are the first few lines of the current arisoft.csv file. It is in the same folder as the images.

Code:

"File","Title","Caption"
"20150923-155101-_MG_2298.jpg"," ","Tony Mortimer"
"20150923-160157-_MG_2302.jpg"," ","Tony Mortimer"



In the plug-in settings for Colorbox Anywhere I currently have
Code:

{$Caption}

as the value of ACOLORBOX_IMGLIST_LABEL_CAPTION

Here is the contents of the Joomla! article. Note the reference to descrFile

Code:

<p>{aricolorbox moduleId="10021"} {/aricolorbox} 
{aricolorbox activeType="imglist" 
dir="images/Activities/digSig/Images/Weir Farm Photo Shoot 2015"
descrFile="aricolorbox.csv"
generateThumbs="1" thumbWidth="70" thumbHeight="70"
thumbType="resize" type="gallery" itemCount="4"} 
{/aricolorbox}</p>



And lastly, here is a partial screenshot showing an image in the slideshow with the LITERAL "$Caption" at the bottom of the lightbox.
