Configuration parameters

Note: The following parameters are applied globally - the same settings will be used for all galleries that are published via the RSMediagallery! Content plugin.

  • Number of items per row: The number of thumbnails to be displayed per row
  • Center gallery: Centers the gallery inside the container
  • Filter galleries by tags: Adds a tag filter above the gallery. Clicking on a tag will render the gallery to only display images associated with it
  • Thumbnail Size: Specify either the width or the height of the thumbnail images.
  • Open Type: Specify how to open the image, either in a Lightbox or in the defined URL.
  • Full Size: Specify either the width or the height of the full images.
  • Use Original Image: Specify if the full image is shown instead of the full resolution crop.
  • Resize Image in Lightbox: This will fit all content (image and details) in the window, if the height of the lightbox is higher than the window.
  • Crop Image in Lightbox: If enabled this option will allow the image in lightbox to be cropped on devices with smaller screen resolution.
  • Order Images By: Free Ordering / Random / Title / Description / Hits / Created date / Modified.
  • Order Direction: Ascending / Descending.
  • Number of Items: This is the number of images that will be displayed. Use 0 to display all.
  • Show Title: Yes / No. If set to yes, the image title will be displayed.
  • Show Description: Yes / No. If set to yes, the image description will be displayed.
  • Show Details: Yes / No. Shows the Title / Description on the thumbnail. Note: They will appear only if above options are set to 'Yes'.

The above parameters can be included within the publishing syntax. The following attributes can be used:

  • tags: the list of comma separated tags (eg. tags="dogs, cats")
  • open_type: Specify how to open the image, either in a Lightbox or in the defined URL (eg. open_type="url" or open_type="lightbox")
  • use_original: use 1 or 0
  • thumb_width: specify the width of the thumbnails (eg. thumb_width="200")
  • thumb_height: specify the height of the thumbnails (eg. thumb_height="400")
  • full_width: specify the width of the full images (eg. full_width="200")
  • full_height: specify the height of the full images (eg. full_height="400")
Note: Only one of the width or height parameters is taken into consideration - the other will be ignored and calculated automatically.
  • ordering: ordering, title, description, hits, created, modified
  • direction: asc, desc
  • limit: use a number higher than 0 to limit the pictures displayed, or use 0 to show them all
  • show_title: use 1 or 0
  • show_description: use 1 or 0
  • image: use the number of the image you would like to show up (eg. image="1" to show the first image from the set) and the others will be hidden but still visible in the lightbox when it opens up.
  • itemsrow: how many thumbnails are shown on one row. You can use 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 or 12 (eg. itemsrow="4")
  • animation: use 1 or 0 (eg. animation="0" will disable the filtering tags)
  • default_tag: used to pre-select a tag of your choosing from the gallery filtering (eg. default_tag="cars" - whereas `cars` is the exact name of your tag)

To be able to add a gallery within a article, the following syntax is required:

{rsmediagallery tags="tag one, tag two"}

Here's an example of how you can use other parameters within the placeholder:

{rsmediagallery tags="tag one, tag two" use_original="1" direction="desc" limit="5" show_title="0"}
