Constrain width of Coppermine gallery
« on: May 16, 2005, 12:13:49 am »

Hi

The site I want to embed Coppermine into is a fixed width with a fixed width banner at the top.  Trouble is that Coppermine is expanding to fill the available width of the screen which is lloking horrible.  I can restrict the width of components of the gallery but how do I limit the width of the whole thing ~ please

If you create an iframe and place CPG in the iframe then CPG will only expand to the size in which you set your iframe to.

Thanks ~ I had thought of that and tried it, but the iframe also imposes a height limit which results in the need for scrolling in a LONG page or a shedload of dead space in a short page.

Any other suggestions  ::)

there's no other method to embedd coppermine into a page, using the PHP commands include or require are not option. The recommended way is to build a coppermine theme that matches the look of the rest of your site and that contains your site's overall navigation.
IMO <iframe> sucks, that's why I recommend not using it.
For details, post a link.

Hi GauGau ~ thanks for the reply  :)  I have used coppermine at www.imagewales.co.uk/Coppermine.  You will see that the Coppermine element expands to fit the whole of the available browser window whilst the site banner remains fixed.  The main site maintains a maximum width beyond which a background image tile fills the space (am I making sense?? it has been a L_O_N_G day)

not sure what you have edited, but have you tried setting the template.html table to the width of your header, looks like you also need some div align=center action on the header, for me it aligns left.

on another note if you shoot me the files i'll fix it, send me a pm or post your files

Looking at the source code of you home page (where you have a lot of markup errors, like double <body> sections etc.), this is a crude first version of something you could use as template.html:

I have had another go

As a total newbie to CSS, templates and the like I had trouble in getting the template.html to produce anything that looked remotely like a webpage.  So I thought sideways....

I discovered that my CMS system allows me to link to external pages and keep them within the overall main site.  I like the way it has worked, however, the images are not showing.  The placeholders DO show and calling the properties shows
Quote
http://www.mydomain.co.uk/albums/userpics/image/thumb_name.jpg
which is obviously the root of my web rather than the root of the Coppermine gallery.  The look so far is EXACTLY what I want to achieve, so is there an easy way of changing either the path from where the images are called ~ or to the save path ??

I am using the 2Bornot2B skin and the effect I want can be seen at http://www.imagewales.co.uk/index.php?categoryid=25 whilst the page can be viewed outside of the CMS at www.imagewales.co.uk/Coppermine

I see it as a natural progression from the original query as it all relates to fixing the width of the page and doesnt leave the thread in mid-air.  However I am happy to post it as a new thread if that is what board admin would prefer, but dont want to be responsible for multiple posting of the issue.

I shall start a new thread
