It will need to be updated for CPG 1.6.x.

Some years ago I used the plugin in my 1.5 gallery. I did try the latest version in my 1.6 test could not batch add the files.

Has anybody tried it with 1.6 yet? For me, an easy alternative would be to replace the youtube image with an ordinary one, with a link to the video from the description field. Not sure how many images would need replacing, maybe dozens or hundreds - oh dear!!!!

I'm no expert at editing themes and plugins etc. but have set up my test site in a way that looks and feels right for me. Using a pc, Chrome and Firefox seem similar, but on a mobile Firefox is hopeless at showing the intermediate image when browsing the gallery - so Chrome has to be used.

The theme is water_drop, and for mobiles theme_switch changes it to mobile_light. I use keyboard_navigation plugin, also lightbox and HTML5_slideshow.

The format for my images is 957x638, a size I chose when setting up my main gallery in 2006 as it fitted computer screens around at that time. Also, I had to be careful how much web space I was using due to hosting cost.

I no longer take photos, always using a camcorder instead, but now I can crop good images from the video and my original gallery is growing again.

HTML5 slideshow is new to me, and on tablets and mobile is great, especially now with improved swiping movement on the screen. Lightbox can also be useful on mobiles and tablets as the image can be increased in size by finger/thumb stretching, but on a pc and using keyboard navigation the left and right arrows on the keyboard make it easier to view images than the mouse.

The title and description are not set to show on HTML5 slideshow, for better viewing on a mobile, but do show on lightbox. When viewing the intermediate image, not using slideshow or lightbox, if the photo is from a video then I have added the word "video" in description, which will link to that video in youtube.

As yet, I am not ready to upgrade my 1.5 galleries, minicms is not available for 1.6 at the moment and I'm not sure what will happen with some of the images that used a plugin to connect to youtube videos.

Hope this might be a useful illustration of a 1.6 gallery that, for me anyway, can work well on a mobile, tablet and pc. Feel free to delete the topic if not appropriate, but any comments on what I may have done wrong, or ways I could improve things that that don't quite work right on this gallery would be appreciated. Themes and plugins are not modifed, other than config settings etc.

You will need to use the $superCage object provided by the Inspekt mechanism.

I use the {CUSTOM_HEADER} to insert php into my themes. For some reason $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME‘] does not work properly to find out the URL of the page in my code yet all other php coding (I've tried) works properly using this method. The code works fine outside of coppermine.

Anyone have any ideas why? Or another way to get php code to run inside the theme. Basically I need to check the url against an array and display one of 2 pieces of code depending if it matches the array or not.

Sorry, just noticed, as long as tablet is sideways the pop-up option is there, turn it vertical and it's gone.

I really am finished for the night now!!!

Looking at the options, I tried displaying in new pop-up window - and it looked very good. Then when I tried a different album I could not get it to go full screen, it did not appear to be in a pop-up window and had the url box etc showing above it. I'm using chrome at the moment on my mobile, as Firefox has really gone mad since I added a film strip.

After much messing, I did get it to go in a pop-up window again, but only by resetting the pop-up option to "off", the giving it a "tick" and trying it again. Leaving the settings as they are, the pop-up refuses to work.

Tried it with chrome on tablet. Above the image there are 6 little icons plus the one for pop-up window, but on the mobile there are only 4 icons and nothing for pop-up. I have also tried the mobile with the normal setting as well as the mobile setting. The thumbnail columns change between 2 and 4 as appropriate, but pop-up refuses to work.

Think I need a good night's sleep Ron!!

As I already use theme switch, I have added a thumbnail strip for mobiles and changed the thumbnail column from 1 to 2 and think it does look better.

One thing I where I am lost is that with the 1.5 gallery, when viewing on a tablet, I can click an icon to go to mobile view, and from mobile view, using "Jump to page" dropdown - I can select "normal view". But with 1.6 the dropdown has a blank where "Normal" should be, but if I click on the blank area it will change the view.

I'm obviously showing my lack of knowledge but can't work out which file to edit to add the word "Normal".

Ron, I know what you mean about the image jumping up and down according to lines of text, I don't like that either.

I have now set it to show the fullsize image without text, which makes it much better if using a tablet or pc - but a bit of overkill if using a mobile, as image has to be shrunk so much and of course much higher data usage.

I don't know if it's the same on all mobiles, but I can get an image to fill the screen more on a mobile with lightbox than with this plug in, as the browser bar etc. will not hide, which can be done with lightbox if you "stretch" the image.

I have to admit to being rather confused as to which option to choose, - such as show text or not, intermediate or fullsize - but I think the swipe left/right/up/down function is great for mobiles.

A confused Sharpo!

Viewing my 1.6 test site on a tablet and using the plugin, if there is a title or description - it cuts off the top of the image.

The text area (title/description) should be a partially transparent background with the new version. You may need to reset the text area background color for the opacity to get set. I could probably make it an option to overlay the text at the top of the image (or not). The reason for the change is because I don't like the inconsistent position of the image depending on whether there is and how much text.

You seem to like small sized images in your gallery.
