Flickr Photo Gallery with lightbox1 user found helpful
I'd really love a block that automatically took the RSS feed from a flickr set and created a thumbnail gallery of that set with a lightbox when clicking on any thumbnail
I'm sure there would be quite a few people that would be prepared to pay a little bit for such a block
I hope to get a working demo up soon and then release it to the concrete5 marketplace. Any feedback or feature request's are appreciated. Thanks
It looks great and might be just what I am looking for
Please keep me updated on your progress, I would be happy to test the block on our website
PS I can't see how it links to the photo on flickr which I think is a condition of flickr's T&Cs
This is not about what you are doing with Flickr but about getting a ligthbox to wokr in C5. Maybe you might have some idea how I can get prettyPhoto to work?
I am trying to make it work within the default.php page and I think it might be something to do with firing up the plugin with document.ready:
Wherever I put this...
... it just doesn't seem to work.
Or maybe it is something else that is going astray.
Any ideas would be very welcome.
Maybe that will help give you a start. Also what you might check is if you have 2 jquery versions in the head of the theme as they could be conflicting. Concrete5 includes jquery automatically (at least in my themes, I am not 100% sure it does with all). Anyways, that was a problem I ran into when I first tried to add fancybox to a theme.
I'll try to see if I can find any more stuff out. But for now, I hope this helps
I really appreciate your help but it hasn't worked and I have tried so many things I'm at a loss to know what to do. There has to be something I am missing here!!!!!
I have bundled everything into default.php and skipped the header.php loading. Here is my default page minus all the irrelevant stuff:
On the full page I have 3 content blocks set up.
I have swapped prettyPhoto for fancybox and set it up in the site outside of C5 where it works perfectly.
I did wonder if my menuslider.js might be interfering with the lightbox and still no joy when I removed it.
There has to be answer somewhere!
Thanks for your help
Almost there! I've tried the theme and when I activate it on my local host (XAMPP) it doesn't work but when I try it on a live installation it does! Tried on 2 test sites!
Any idea why XAMPP localhost won't play ball? It is much easier testing on localhost than a live server. Will do it if I have to!
Thanks for all your help. Without you I don;t think I would have found the root cause of the problem. Well, not this year at least!
You might also try one of these:
The current version will only display a photostream or a photo set in square thumbnail fashion(up to 30 per page). In the future I hope to integrate set lists, gallery lists, and galleries as well as provide an option to incorporate ajax. I really appreciate the feedback you all gave me.
Please try it out and let me know what you think.
Thanks so much,
I tried installing it today, I got an API key and entered it in the correct place on the dashboard etc. But I just get this error message in the block when I try to use it:
'Fatal error: Call to undefined method SimpleXMLElement::count() in /home/falkone/public_html/packages/flickrcrete/blocks/flickrcrete/controller.php on line 107'
