myGallery hacks

I wanted more than one random image to appear on my sidebar, which was the default.

Starting out I did no know how many, though I finally settled on having a block of 9 images. I chose to use Lightbox v1.
Firstly a couple of changes to mygallery.php:

  • Find: function myrandompic($myamount=1)
    Change the 1 to a 9 (or to any number according to the number of images you want)
  • For some reason the original script did not include Alt & Title Text within the lightbox view of the sidebar random image.
    This can be made possible by including title="'.$result->alttitle.'". Scroll down until you find the comment: // return picture and then rel="lightbox"
    This then make the line of code read:
    $myhyperlink_open='<a rel="lightbox" href="'.$myurl.$result->name.'/'.$result->picturepath.'" title="'.$result->alttitle.'">';

Secondly a tweak to the css:

  • .myrandompic {
    text-align: center;
    display: inline;
    }
  • .myrandompic img {
    height: 52px;
    width: 52px;
    }
  • .myrandompic a img {
    border: 2px solid #ffffff;
    padding: 1px;
    }
  • .myrandompic a:hover img {
    border: 2px solid #CC0000;
    padding: 1px;
    }
