TOPIC: Using the Flickr Gallery option and custom loading

Using the Flickr Gallery option and custom loading 7 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 0
My question is the following. I have purchased the latest ARI Pretty Photo and I'm trying to display a photoset from flickr in a client's website.

So far so good, I got it to show up in an article. However I am using the Single Image layout type in the ari pretty photo module with the option Flickr Gallery and that has as code the following in the template area box:

Code:

{$data:prettyimage}


This auto generates and displays in the page the first image of the photoset and clicking on it displays a larger version with pagination and all the magic inside the lightbox.

However, what I want to be able to do is put a random pic or text i choose hyperlinked and clicking on that have that fire off the lightbox with the images in the photoset.

Instead of displaying the first image in the photoset in the page i would like to have something like a Pictures link or image and if the user clicks on that, gets the lightbox with the photoset pics he can navigate through.

What code should I put in the template to achieve this or is it even possible?

Thanks!

Hello,

We have updated "ARI Pretty Photo" and now it provides new template type called "Custom text". Choose this type and enter in "Template" field necessary text or HTML. This text will be shown on the frontend and if an user click by this text, lightbox with images will be shown. You can download the latest version of the extension in "Member Area" on our site.

ARI Soft

Will this support also an image?

I need to have this image open up the gallery -> www.debugthemyth.com/images/btn-pictures.jpg

Yes, it supports HTML. You can type the following code in 'Template' field:

Code:


<img src="path_to_image" border="0" />

But this image needs to be wrapped with a link or something, right? Just using an image tag as you stated above doesn't work - the image doesn't do anything when clicked.

Judging by how this link would need to work, it seems that it needs the "rel" value set to something dynamic, right? I viewed the HTML for the page when viewing a single-image gallery and it looks something like this:

<a href="[STATIC FLICKR ADDRESS]" rel="prettyPhoto[RANDOM_STRING]"> <img src="images/my_image.jpg" border="0" /> </a>

However, if I am using the "Custom text" field, then I can't fill in whatever this RANDOM_STRING is that your code is populating here (which seems to be different on every page load). What would a FULL example the text in the Template field be?

Thanks!

Hello,

It doesn't require wrap tag, the extension do it automatically. Only enter necessary html and it should work. If it don't work on your site, provide link where we can see this issue and we'll help you.
