Very Simple Image Gallery Plugin Sample09
Written by Andreas Berger   
Sunday, 20 March 2011 13:37

This sample shows two - new since version 1.6.5 possibilities to configure a gallery. First, the thumbs are shown left of the main image. Second, the main image is linked to the original image file automatically.

Settings in the plugin configuration panel

To configure the galleries on your site as shown above, the settings in the plugins configuration panel are:

  • Gallery width: 430
  • max. Image height:
  • Image quality: 90
  • Align the gallery: Center
  • Thumbnail width: 60
  • Thumbnail height: 40
  • Crop thumbnails: keep proportions
  • Image thumbnail quality: 80
  • Space between thumbs: 2
  • Thumbnails are shown: Left of the main image
  • Thumbnail Columns: 2
  • Sort order: A-Z
  • Use sets of size:
  • Label sets: Set
  • Link/button forward:
  • Link/button backward:
  • Show captions? Yes
  • Position of captions? Inside
  • Use links? Yes
  • Link original image: Yes
  • Image root: /images/stories/
  • Buttonfolder: /images/stories/vsig_buttons/
  • Use JavaScript? Yes
  • Switch on hover thumb? No
  • Preload images? No
  • File names as tooltips? No
  • Foldername as ID? No

Code in article

To show the images in the folder /images/stories/verysimple, type the following code in your article at the place you want the gallery to be shown:

{*vsig}verysimple{/vsig*} - (without the asterisks)

Overrides

If you are using other settings than the shown above in the plugins configuration panel and want to configure just the current gallery, it is possible to extend the code in your article with Parameter Overrides (refer Plugin Howto Code). The settings for the gallery shown above are:

  • width=430
  • height=
  • imquality=90
  • align=1
  • twidth=60
  • theight=40
  • crop=
  • quality=80
  • space=2
  • right=3
  • cols=2
  • sort=0
  • sets=0
  • setstxt=Set
  • cfwd=
  • cbwd=
  • caps=1
  • inout=1
  • links=1
  • autolink=1
  • script=1
  • hover=0
  • preload=0
  • tooltip=0
  • folderid=0


In your article you overwrite only the parameters that differ from the settings in your backend. For example:

{*vsig}verysimple|right=3|twidth=60|theight=40|space=2|autolink=1{/vsig*} - (without the asterisks)


If you have questions or suggestions, please use the comment-function. Please include the installed Joomla! version and if you have problems - if any possible - the affected page in your comment.

If you need additional features or customizations for your project that exceed the scope of support offered through the comments, you are invited to submit your requirements specification and the planned budget by email (menu item "Contact" in the menu at the top).

If you use this extensions, please post a rating and a review at extensions.joomla.org.

Hi Vagner!

There is always a loss of quality when imges get scaled by the GD library. In general: The better the original, the better the scaled image. Therefore I would try to scale the images offline to a size near the size they get displayed online and improve the quality as much as possible (using e.g. GIMP) before uploading them.
In addition, I would set the quality of the main images to 95% percent (100% does not deliver much better results but much larger files) in the configuration panel of the plugin.

Best regards
Andreas

Very Simple Image Gallery question.

Edward Cox

hello and thank you most sincerely for providing Very Simple Image Gallery as a great Joomla! tool.

We have Joomla! 1.7 installed, and are using the plugin setting in an article as : {*vsig}Rendered_Facades/Single_Storey/Large_Display{/vsig*} [remove *'s]
here's a link to a working page: http://everydayhomes.iconvm.com.au/home-designs/single-story?id=41
It's working fine, however we need to be able to show 'captions' for each image (or facade) - so that when we rollover an generated thumbnail of an image on the specified directory we can show for example 'Summer Village' as the caption for the image.
Is this possible? Can you please advise on how we might achieve this?
Thank you kindly in advance for your consideration and assistance.

Kind Regards,
Ed @ Iconvisual.com.au

Hi Edward!

The plugin offers the feature "Captions" which allows to achieve this. Check the page "Howto Plugin Code" (menu at the left), it explains the feature.
If you explicitly want to show the captions as tooltips at the thumbnails only without showing them over/below the main image too: Set the captions in the article and use the title line only. Next, disable the feature in the configuration panel of the plugin (or by parameter override). The plugin will now use the title line of your captions as tooltips for the thumbnails only.

Best regards
Andreas
