Photoalbum - caption visible?

Hey,
is there a setting (or module template modification) that can be done to get the picture name, actually "caption", on the gallery page below or on the bottom of the image? Now it is visible only when the lightbox opens. In our gallery the visitor should see what product each picture represents already before opening the pop up lighbox.

  • I added the line "{$record->title}" into the file showall.tpl

    {img class="img-small" alt=$record->alt|default:$record->expFile[0]->alt file_id=$record->expFile[0]->id w=$config.pa_showall_thumbbox|default:"150" h=$config.pa_showall_thumbbox|default:"150" zc=1 q=$quality|default:75}
    {$record->title}

    It seems to make what is needed.

    Then in the photo album you can put a url where you want the image to be linked to. It doesn't seem to work. I'm using Exp 2.1.3 still because I'm going through all the content and making sure it will be good to go for the next versions. Is this URL-not-working some kind of a bug that is fixed in newer versions or is it a known issue at all?

    I'm talking about this field in the photo album item form:
    "Link this Slideshow Slide to a URL"

  • Hmmm. Maybe I could combine the template with the slideshow url. I need a gallery with thumbnails only which link to another page. It's like a visual linkage page. Every small thumbnail shows a product that leads to an individual stand alone page with existing info about the product and there is actually also gallery of the features of that product.

    I let you know if it works what I plan.

  • The 'url link' feature only works in the slideshow views (hence the 'Link this Slideshow Slide to a URL'), we already use a link in the other views to bring up the lightbox or a full-size graphic (in place of the thumbnail)

  • Ok, this could be a way to do it. I hope this a proper solution.

    I made a "showall_portfolio.tpl" (out of the file "showall.tpl").

    Lines 75-79 modified:

    link}" title="{$alt|default:$title}">
    {img class="img-small" alt=$record->alt|default:$record->expFile[0]->alt file_id=$record->expFile[0]->id w=$config.pa_showall_thumbbox|default:"150" h=$config.pa_showall_thumbbox|default:"150" zc=1 q=$quality|default:75}
    {$record->title}


    Now every picture links to a given url (just used the same "slide url" even if this is not a slide).
    In case there is no url given, it links to the gallery page itself.
