Power Gallery integration with dynamic CSS Menu Writer

Power Gallery integration with dynamic CSS Menu Writer

I’ve created a Web Site with CSS Sculptor 3, CSS Menu Writer & Power Gallery; every thing works just fine except I can’t make sense of various instructions provided with Power Gallery to transfer the Gallery query to the dynamic Menu present in to a view galleries page on the site.

I’m sure the fix is something simple to implement; I’ve searched the forum for some directions but I couldn’t find any thing to help me out.

The dynamic menu shows at the moment the following link: /view_crafts.php?id=[id] and display all the Gallery Titles just fine.

The page which shows (should) the Galleries has imbedded the link:
<?php
$pg_id = '2';
$pg_theme = 'dark';
include('/home/woodwork/public_html/galleries/ribbon_fullsize_lightbox/index.php'); ?>

The problem with this PHP link is that shows only one of the database id all the time and is not integrated with the Dynamic Menu; I’ve attempted to make several changes to this id query but things got just messier with no satisfactory results.

The Power Gallery Database Integration instruction continues to add confusion to my limited knowledge to PHP coding and again they didn’t provide me with any enlightenment or solution.

Can anyone assist me to resolve this issue?

Thank you

Looks like you can modify your view_crafts.php page to use this line of code:

php:
$pg_id = intval($_GET['id']);


That would take your id argument passed into the page and cause your gallery to load up using that id.

Power Store integration with CSS Menu Writer

Hi Justin,

That worked as a charm, thank you. Simple and effective.

However there is one other glitch which needs some fixing.

The dynamic drop down menu is horizontal one located above the Power Gallery display of images. Both have a mouse over behaviors and the two, at the moment, are fighting for attention. The looser is the drop down menu making impossible to press the latest buttons down on the list. I gather that in somehow I should establish a hierarchy between the two with the menu on the top.

The page displaying the galleries is basically a layout shell with a link to the Power Gallery “…galleries/ribbon_fullsize_lightbox/index.php etc.” while the menu above it is linked to the page through a Template which links the menu to the CSSMenuWriter folder etc.

Do you have a fix for this one? Can you help?

Thanks again from the land of OZ

Sounds like setting a z-index css property will fix it. Do you have a link to view the page experiencing the issue?

CSS Menu Writer and Power Gallery glitches

Hi Justin,
Thanks for your reply and the assistance you are offering.
The link to the site is: view_crafts.php?id=6 or any other Gallery for that matter; as you can see the last button of the Drop Down Menu display above the Power Gallery and that is were the problems are.

I gather that a z-index will fix the issue but I'm not sure how to implement it in the page view_crafts.php. I did try to give to the menu a z- index (<div id="topNavigation" style=" z-index:1">) and to the contents area (were the Gallery is displayed) <div id="contentWrapper" style=" z-index:2"> but there is still interference with the Power Gallery mouse-over.

Maybe I didn't do things properly with the z-indexing? Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks again
Alfredo

Edit this file galleries/ribbon_fullsize_lightbox/css/common.css and search for the .pg-rfl .fullsize .fullsize-enlarge rule. It will have a z-index: 100, change that to z-index: 90. That should do the trick.

Powr Gallery integration with CSS Menu Writer

Dear Justin & Web Assist team,
Thanks for your assistance, everyone of your fixes worked just fine.
Without you help I would have never expected to find a solution to the mouse-over glitch by changing few numbers in the CSS file for the Gallery. Maybe this fix should be incorporated in one of your PDF instruction manuals for the Power Gallery.

I'm quite pleased to be a customer of Web Assist you support is quite outstanding and I hope it will continue in that way for a very long time. Customer Support really makes a difference don't be sway out of it by any economical rationalisations or the like!

Thank you Mate
