Re: New template released in the SGAL Lab

I just downloaded the latest templates and used in a fresh install of singapore 10.1. All work fine except modern 1.3.4. It gives me a blank page. Modern 1.3.2 works OK. Is there a known problem or a change that needs to be made somewhere else? I'm on a mac using imagemagick v6, php 5.2.6, and sqlite.

ps. At your test site, right mouse click on images is disabled, but this doesn't happen in the downloaded templates. Where is this done?

Re: New template released in the SGAL Lab

Love the new Polaroid template. Is there any way to enlarge the size of the images on the thumbnail page? See http://beachsun.org/photos/index.php?ga … 20Solstice

I suppose in order to enlarge the size of the images you would have to reduce the number of images on each row, which would be fine.

Thanks.

Re: New template released in the SGAL Lab

Could the problem in 1.3.4 be the additional use of $_GET on s system where session save path is not supported?

Re: New template released in the SGAL Lab

As I said earlier, modern 1-3-4 template does not work on my system. I noticed that it makes additional use of $_GET in its logic and thought it might be the problem. I have since changed my system to define session_save_path in PHP, but it still fails. I should move this discussion to another forum.

Re: New template released in the SGAL Lab

Hi glad you like the new template, as to your question of bigger thumbs yes but not so simple you would need to make new images and then re adjust the css as well to match the position and size of the new larger images ...

Hi please voice your opinions on our new custom templates here!

Re: New template released in the SGAL Lab

Hi lakechicago,
Glad you like the template!

Dc is right about making larger images for the background polaroid look. What I could do is make an assortment of sizes and corresponding style sheets. It is abit tricky to construct.

What size of thumbs are you looking for?

Re: New template released in the SGAL Lab

I'm not sure what size I'm looking for but it would be larger than the present ones. I take it they're 80px square? I'd go to 100px square, if possible.

Can you do it??

Thanks.

Re: New template released in the SGAL Lab

Don,

Here is the background image and a html page which has the CSS changes to match the 100x100 pixel thumbnails.

Download files


Then remember to go into the template.ini file for the Polaroid template and change:

Code:

thumb_width_album  = 80
thumb_height_album = 80
thumb_crop_album = on

Change 80 to 100


Mark

Re: New template released in the SGAL Lab

You are welcome Don, enjoy!!

I have a new idea... I would like to use the Neat 2 template to display thumbnails side by side and then use the polaroid background technique.

The Polaroid template is good if you need to have descriptions for the galleries because the images are stacked, but I'm thinking if a user doesn't need the descriptions Neat 2 is a good one.

I'm 100% in agreement and actually started working on it but soon realized my meager skills were not up to the task. smile
