Tip

The thumbnails are saved in Joomla! cache directory - /joomla_root/cache/plugins/content/cdwebgallery.


Pre-Requirements

  1. Install and enable Core Design Scriptegrator plugin.


Setup

  1. Install the plugin.
  2. Open plugin configuration and set the default plugin options.
  3. Save the settings and also don't forget to publish the plugin.

 

How to enable the gallery?

  1. Open article where you wish to place your gallery.
  2. Put the images to your article with your favourite editor (for example JCE ). It doesn't matter on size or position.
  3. Wrap your images with the {webgallery}{/webgallery} marks:
    {webgallery} YOUR IMAGES THERE {/webgallery}

    Example

  4. Save the article. That's all!

 

What's about captions?

  1. Thumbnails caption:
    Fill the ALT attributes to your image. Source code example:
    <img src="my_image.png" alt="Short caption" />

    Note: Please make sure this "title" won't be longer then your thumbnail size.

  2. Image popup caption:
    Fill the TITLE attributes to your image. Source code example:
    <img src="my_image.png" title="Very long description" />

    Note: The empty ALT or TITLE attributes means no captions.

 

How to enable one image with popup effect without theme?

Well, just put your image to the article, wrap him with the {webgallery} marks and set the theme to "single":
Example: {webgallery theme="single"}MY_IMAGE{/webgallery}

Note: The "single" theme enables to display one image ONLY. The image is returned with the original code (align, style...) but is processed with choosed popup engine.

 

Plugin note

Please remember, the plugin was developed for GALLERIES, that means more then 1 lonesome image on your site :) The lot of single images load a little more code to page header which may cause a slower site loading or conflicts with styles.
