[HOW TO] : output with imageflow 11 Years, 10 Months ago  
hello all

I'm lost with the output parameter.
I'm using imageflow but I'm lost with the ouput parameters ..

I just want to display 15 images and to link each images to an article, on the same window (without opening a new window).

My question is how to setup the parameters ??

Thanks for any help

Greeting !!
MJ

Hi,I just want to display 15 images and to link each images to an article, on the same window (without opening a new window).
To do this you need to use an image list configuration file. For each thumbnail that you want in the gallery you define a line in the image list file that looks something like the one below:

img="images/stories...myimage.jpg" url="mysite.com/..." tmplt="modules/mod_imageflow/templates/urllinktemplate.txt"

If you want to link to a bookmark on the same page, define the html element that you want to link to by giving it a unique id, like id="bookmark1". Then in the url= parameter of the img in the gallery that you want to jump to that link when clicked, specify url="#bookmark1".

I hope I haven't misunderstood what you were asking.

Hello

Thanks for your reply
So, if I have it ok, I just have to write an image list configuration file (for example, "myimageslist.txt").
Inside I write down the following parameters :

Code:

img="images/stories...myimage1.jpg" url="index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=74&Itemid=133" tmplt="modules/mod_imageflow/templates/urllinktemplate.txt"
img="images/stories...myimage2.jpg" url="index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=74&Itemid=134" tmplt="modules/mod_imageflow/templates/urllinktemplate.txt"
...



But what is "urllinktemplate.txt" ?
Is it what I have called "myimageslist.txt"

Thanks again, and have a good week end
MJ !

Hi,

The urllinktemplate.txt file is supplied with imageflow and is used to output the html needed to link to a url when the thumbnail is clicked.

You must put location of your 'myimageslist.txt' file in the image list file parameter in the imageflow configuration.

Re:[HOW TO] : output with imageflow 11 Years, 9 Months ago  
I am a newbie, apologies for questions that will seem silly.

I don't understand what I am supposed to do with the output file.
Do I have to make one? If so, to what directory do I save it to?

Where can I find information that will guide me step by step into making a gallery?
For now, I'm a bit overwhelmed.

When I add the directory where I have five images stored (instead of an image list), the page seems to keep loading ad infinitum.

Anyone advice?

Thanks,
Leopard

If you are referring to the Output template parameter, normally, you do not need to do anything with it. It all depends upon what script you wish to use to produce the popup image when a thumbnail in the gallery is clicked. If you are using highslide to produce the popup, you can leave the Output template parameter blank as it defaults to the highslide template. If you use a different script, Lightbox for example, then select the lightboxtemplate.txt template from the modules/mod_imageflow/templates directory.

Hope that helps.
