I am a newbie on web development, and currently I am trying gpeasy cms.
I am looking for help to modify the gallery page, for the thumbnail I don't wanna have the caption, just wanna the sqaure around pic nicely which I can put more pic on the same line. How can I change from the coding site?
Waiting for some expert to help. Thanks a lot!
Looked into it but couldn't figure it out either. Hopefully Josh or someone more knowledgeable will get a chance to answer your Q. I think they are currently rather busy as things have been a bit quiet here. I would just give it some time.
You might want to add it as a feature request--the ability to show/hide captions in galleries. I'm sure that would be a feature many would enjoy especially if it's per page/gallery an not all or nothing.
Sorry I couldn't help.
Like strodtbeck said, it might be a good feature request for upcoming releases. With the current release you don't have control over the gallery thumbnail display through your admin panel, so, the only way i have figured out is to hardcode the additional.css located in your include/css/ folder, this is not a good way to deal with it because then you will have to replace this file with the hacked one every time you upgrade gpEasy!!
Anyway if you would like to try it out, download this file, backup your original include/css/additional.css and replace it with this one.
The default thumbnail size generated by gpEasy is 100x100px, so if you haven't changed that, this css file should work for you!
(changing default generated size can be done in the file cybermax mentioned)
It does however still show caption text if you include it when creating your gallery page in the admin panel, but since i dont add text to the thumbs it worked great for me.
Take a look at lines 50 to 71 of the downloaded file, if you understand css you can always change the looks of the square behind the image and it's size (note: default generated thumbnail size has to be accounted for before messing with the css).
This is not a real solution, but a rather a 'patch', at least until it becomes a feature in the admin panel.
Hope it helps.
I found another type of image gallery you might be interested in. It's all css and rather easy do to. Its called Hoverbox and you can find it here.
It's rather easy to work with. If you want to display a thumbnail and the full size image you simple use the thumbnail as the first image and the full as the second which has a class="preview" and remove all the css for img width and height. That way it will display the thumb and full image.
Here's what I changed it to:
An easier way to do all of this. . . somewhat anyways ;)
Just use syndicatefx'c css and copy out the gallery part:
