Extending the "Simple Image Gallery" Plugin

Postby cimarron » Tue Dec 12, 2006 7:54 pm

Hello:

If you need more flexibility in the description of images, you can use the following hack:

Around line 60 of  plugin_jw_sig.php, you can add this code:

$_description=$mosConfig_absolute_path.$rootfolder.$_images_dir_.'/'.$images[$a]['filename'].".desc";
if(file_exists($_description))  {
  $_message_= file_get_contents($_description);
}else{
  $_message_ = $param->get('message', 'You are browsing images from the article:');
}

This code retrieves the content of a file named "name_of_image.desc" (if it exists) and use it instead of the default value.

So you just need to upload a text file with the same name of the image (plus extension .desc) and that text will be displayed.

Tried it did not work, can you say where exactly the code goes, I inserted the code after

Code: Select all

$html .= '<div class="sig_cont"><div class="sig_thumb"><a href="'.$mosConfig_live_site.$rootfolder.$_images_dir_.'/'.$images[$a]['filename'].'" rel="lightbox[sig]" title="'.$_message_.'<br /><b>'.$itemtitle.'</b>" target="_blank"><img src="'.$mosConfig_live_site.'/mambots/content/plugin_jw_sig/showthumb.php?img='.$_images_dir_.'/'.$images[$a]['filename'].'&width='.$_width_.'&height='.$_height_.'&quality='.$_quality_.'"></a></div></div>';

Hi.

Thanks for your test.

Actually it goes above the line you mentioned

Code: Select all

for($a = 0;$a<=$noimage;$a++) {
                     if($images[$a]['filename'] != '') {
                        $_description=$mosConfig_absolute_path.$rootfolder.$_images_dir_.'/'.$images[$a]['filename'].".desc";
                        if(file_exists($_description))
                        {
                                $_message_= file_get_contents($_description);

                        }else{
                                $_message_ = $param->get('message', 'You are browsing images from the article:');
                        }

                        $html .= '<div class="sig_cont"><div class="sig_thumb"><a href="'.$mosConfig_live_site.$rootfolder.$_images_dir_.'/'.$images[$a]['filename'].'" rel="lightbox[sig]" title="'.$_message_.'<br /><b>'.$itemtitle.'</b>" target="_blank"><img src="'.$mosConfig_live_site.'/mambots/content/plugin_jw_sig/showthumb.php?img='.$_images_dir_.'/'.$images[$a]['filename'].'&width='.$_width_.'&height='.$_height_.'&quality='.$_quality_.'"></a></div></div>';



Let me know if that works for you.

regards

Thanks, that worked the only thing to remember image extension is required e.g. 'joomla.jpg.desc'

Am I missing something here? I tried it and can't get it to work. Do I need to alter the code if my images reside in a subdirectory (stories/sample/)?

I'm also having a problem getting the captions to show. I'm positive I put the code in the exact location that was instructed. My images are in stories/otherfolder and are called tour1.jpg, tour2.jpg, etc. I've added files containing the description called tour1.jpg.desc, tour2.jpg.desc, etc. in the same folder where my images reside. What could I possibly be missing or doing wrong? Am I supposed to alter the additional code if my images are in a special folder?

Thank you!  ???

I know this is an old thread, but it might as well be what I need.

Just installed the plugin - v2.2 on J2.5, all good and dandy, however it is 6 years later (since when the thread was made...)

There is no plugin_jw_sig.php!!!! The ONLY php file I am finding is jw_simpleImageGallery.php...

Any idea?
