Here’s an update on my progress so far, but I could really use some help getting this working.
First, I was going by the Gallery documentation trying to use &GalleryItem, but later noticed it was missing among the loaded snippets. Turns out there was an update the day after I’d installed the package that added the &GalleryItem snippet. I upgraded my installation and can now get &GalleryItem to work using this:
<img src="[[+galitem.image]]" alt="[[+galitem.name]]" />[[+name]]
<br />Albums: [[+galitem.albums]]
<br />Tags: [[+galitem.tags]]
I don’t know, however, where to find the ID of an image (or ’item’). I see the ID’s listed for the albums, but not for images. I figured there must be at least a 1 or 2, but it didn’t work until I put in 3.
Using &Gallery seems to work fine, but I want the larger images to display on the same page in the slideshow, and cannot get the slideshow to display with Galleriffic.
I found by checking the validation that GallerifficItemThumb should include <li></li> around it. I also added
to the link in this chunk, per the Gallerific documentation. However, I’m still getting the thumbnails, the player controls, and a never-ending loading graphic, but never the larger image in the slideshow area.
There is also a snippet installed called &GalleryConnector, but no documentation on this so I’m not sure what it’s supposed to do. I tried it and got parse errors.
Do I need to do something I’m missing to link the thumbnails to the slideshow area? Is there a bug somewhere still? I could really use some input on this.
Thank you in advance!
