  • Does anybody knows a way to display a gallery with full size images?

    • Just link directly to the images, don't use pthumb or any other thumbnail generators.

      • Hi Sottwell,

        thanks for the reply.

        Maybe I don't understand the benefit of your solution, but for me it doesn't make sense. If I do so, why would I use Gallery, I can put all the images in the content editor as well.

        BR,

        • what Susan is talking about, is: use just the placeholder to the fullsize-image in your image-tpl-chunk.

          Otherwise we would need more specific information, what you mean with a 'gallery with fullsize images'

          • This is want to achieve

            I want to make a page filled with images.
            All the images keep there original size
            The sizes of the images may vary
            I will the Masonary javascript plugin to make all the images nicely fill the page

            So I thought to use Gallery to make it manageable for the users and to create the page.

            PS: Gallery is not a must, it is the gallery manager I have used before


            • I think, you can use the placeholder image_absolute in the thumbTpl like:

              <img class="[[+imgCls]]" src="[[+image_absolute]]" alt="[[+name]]" />

              • Thanx for your good advise Bruno,
                • For people with the same idea: Masonry is the plugin I'm using. Works with plain javascript or with JQuery
