I am trying to create a photography site with multiple galleries, where each gallery is represented by a thumbnail on an albums page. When the user clicks on the thumbnail for a specific album, the album page is loaded with all the thumbnails for that album. Is this possible with the current version of Pulse?
Album photos are stored in individual album folders under media, e.g. /media/album1/, /media/album2/ etc.
The question is: how does one place an individual album thumbnail link on the albums page to point to the gallery for that album?
An example of what I want to do (done with another no longer developed script) would be this: http://picturo.johanbleuzen.fr/ One difference from this example would be that the individual photos in each album are shown in a lightbox, preferably swipebox.
I developed an improved version of floating-cards-2 plug-in where cards are clickable links to URLs of your choice.
This way you can easily reach your goal by setting those URLs to album pages, in turn, these album pages may contain new galleries.
My intentions are to sell this improved version but I can give it to you for free to test and get some feedback.
Replace galleryName with the name of the folder with images into. Set w to the width you want to give to the images, value+unit, if omitted it defaults to 250px.
Make images clickable
From the Pulse admin panel, in the caption area of the image, add anywhere an empty <a> element (I prefer at the end of the caption): <a href="" title =""></a>, set href and title attributes and be careful, must be empty, neither chars nor blanks between opening and closing <a></a> tags.
The image will behave like a link with attributes href and title, and in the caption you will not see that link.
