Slideshow dissolve

Thread began 3/08/2010 5:40 pm by chris373619 | Last modified 7/09/2012 10:19 am by chris373619 | 3762 views | 10 replies


I tried the above for the dissolve case without success, (i.e. my thumbnail images are positioned vertically against the left edge of the browser window (I use Flock, but same in Firefox, Safari for Windows, and Opera...IE8 is a mess). Also, no large images appear in the main area of the gallery. The only thing that did work was the presentation got re-sized to my liking so it fits on my web page.....but to make that happen I needed to change the width in the style sheet too.

Here are the changes to the properties file. You can see that I added the "670" array value to both the proportional and cropped areas (since I tried both):

$GLOBALS['image_extensions'] = array('png', 'jpg', 'jpeg', 'gif'); //use lowercase
$GLOBALS['resize_proportional'] = array(
array('w' => 1024, 'h' => 768, 'watermark' => true),
array('w' => 782, 'h' => 481, 'watermark' => true),
array('w' => 163, 'h' => 92),
array('w' => 670, 'h' => 412, 'watermark' => true)
$GLOBALS['resize_cropped'] = array(
array('w' => 62, 'h' => 62),
array('w' => 132, 'h' => 140),
array('w' => 102, 'h' => 102),
array('w' => 42, 'h' => 42),
array('w' => 782, 'h' => 481, 'watermark' => true),
array('w' => 999, 'h' => 260, 'watermark' => true),
array('w' => 670, 'h' => 412, 'watermark' => true)
$GLOBALS['jpg_quality'] = 90; //0-100, 100 being the best
$GLOBALS['png_quality'] = 1; //0-9, 0 being the best
$GLOBALS['permissions'] = array(
'dir' => 0777,
'file' => 0666

Here are the changes to line 14 of the dissolve index file....with the last case tried being proportional....but cropped and proportional gave the same results described above...notice I commented out the original line 14:
//$gallery = get_gallery(get_mediarss_url('gallery=' . $pg_id . '&thumb=62c&full=782c'));
$gallery = get_gallery(get_mediarss_url('gallery=' . $pg_id . '&thumb=62c&full=670p'));

And here is the part of the dissolve common.css file that I needed to change to at least get it to the width I wanted...again with the original width commented out:
.pg-sd {
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
background-color: #303030;
border: solid 1px #000;
height: 568px;
/* width: 782px; */
width: 670px;

There must be something missing in the suggestion in the previous thread....please help! And please consider adding a more straightforward width change feature in the next revision to at least the three slide show choices. I was able to modify the width of all the non-slide show galleries by editing the style sheets alone, but that approach does not work in at least the dissolve case.
