Re: New Release X3.24.0 :fox:

I really wish I could offer a good suggestion here, as I see how this could be a useful feature. Problem is, I really can't see how we can break an X3 page's gallery into "segments" and mix with text. First of all, that would require some advanced panel settings to break gallery after "image X", and inject some text with html formatting. Furthermore, that would essentially mean you have multiple gallery layouts ("justified" etc) each which need to get rendered separately within its gallery "block".

My best suggestion for this by far: Why not just use your CONTENT section? You can write any text, and then add one or more images:
Image
Of course, this would only work for VERTICAL layout images (not grid), but you can still have them support the POPUP on click. You could also setup all images to be a "group" [ref] so that you can navigate between them when clicking an image. You would also need to HIDE every image in the gallery section, or hide the gallery module itself, else your embedded images would repeat in the page's gallery section.

If you wanted to get more advanced, you could embed the images within a block-grid  (see content > templates dropdown for example).

Not as advanced as the gallery layout itself, but the most flexible way I can think of adding a nice linear walkthrough of images with text.

Option #2
Optionally, you could simply use LONG titles and descriptions for all images in a gallery layout. This way, you could simply use the gallery layout. Consider a page like this or this, with much longer image descriptions. The advantage is you are still using the flexible gallery layout, but the disadvantage is that you can't "group" images and then add text.

Hi Karl,
I´m looking also for the possibility to create a travelogue in X3
I want to have more or less the same format like on my homepage.
For example:
Fotofeeling - Travelogue

I want to show 4 pictures in a row each with a popup.
Is there a way to realize it in X3?
 
I like to generate galleries with different countries in folders or galleries.
I can´t use the name Österreich (Austria) – X3 displays Sterreich!
I can´t display a ”&” in the Gallery for example – Beach & Sea.
Is there a way in X3?
 
Thanks
Christian

Yes, but this is only possible by adding the layout and images yourself in the custom CONTENT section as explained earlier in this post. For example like @GeoPal did (hope he doesn't mind me sharing his link):

It is a bit advanced, since you need to add images into grids, so you would need to deal with some html from the templates.

It is not clear to me exactly what you have named "Österreich". The folder? It should work, but you should really keep NAMES simple: You can use ANY characters in TITLES and LABELS, but the FOLDER NAME should contain only simple characters, because it is your URL! For example, I would recommend this:

Thanks Karl,
I´m not really a specialist for html and css.
Do you have an example for me to add images into grids and add also the content?
Österreich is now solved with the Page Title and Menu Label, thanks.

Best regards
Christian

This is explained somewhat earlier in this post.

You know where your page CONTENT section is I assume? There you can write text of course, but also add images that you have uploaded:
Image

Then, you could also use a GRID layout, and insert your images into grid cells. You can find html templates for the grid in the content templates:
Image

PS! I would NOT recommend starting the above if you don't want to deal with some HTML. Mixing text an images without grid is simple ... but if you want to mix text with various grids where images are clickable, you will have to deal with HTML. Use the templates dropdown as screenshots above, or here is a HTML example of a 4 pictures in a row:
Code
<ul class='small-block-grid-2 large-block-grid-4'>
<li><a href="{{path}}antarctica.jpg" data-popup><img src="{{path}}antarctica.jpg" alt="" /></a></li>
<li><a href="{{path}}sheep.jpg" data-popup><img src="{{path}}sheep.jpg" alt="" /></a></li>
<li><a href="{{path}}mountains.jpg" data-popup><img src="{{path}}mountains.jpg" alt="" /></a></li>
<li><a href="{{path}}ridge.jpg" data-popup><img src="{{path}}ridge.jpg" alt="" /></a></li>
</ul>

Hi Karl,
thanks for your help, it works now.
I have added the pictures which I have uploaded in the same folder under gallery.
The pictures have title and description in the metadata. You can set it up to display tile and description in the pop-up automatically, when I click on the thumb in the content?

<div data-popup-container>
<ul class='small-block-grid-2 large-block-grid-4'>
<li><a href="{{path}}01_01.jpg" rel="01" data-popup-title=""><img src="{{path}}01_01.jpg" alt="" /></a></li>
<li><a href="{{path}}01_02.jpg" rel="01" data-popup-title=""><img src="{{path}}01_02.jpg" alt="" /></a></li>
<li><a href="{{path}}01_03.jpg" rel="01" data-popup-title=""><img src="{{path}}01_03.jpg" alt="" /></a></li>
<li><a href="{{path}}01_04.jpg" rel="01" data-popup-title=""><img src="{{path}}01_04.jpg" alt="" /></a></li>
<li><a href="{{path}}01_05.jpg" rel="01" data-popup-title=""><img src="{{path}}01_05.jpg" alt="" /></a></li>
<li><a href="{{path}}01_06.jpg" rel="01" data-popup-title=""><img src="{{path}}01_06.jpg" alt="" /></a></li>
<li><a href="{{path}}01_07.jpg" rel="01" data-popup-title=""><img src="{{path}}01_07.jpg" alt="" /></a></li>
<li><a href="{{path}}01_08.jpg" rel="01" data-popup-title=""><img src="{{path}}01_08.jpg" alt="" /></a></li>
</ul>
</div>

When do you expect to provide a panorama and map function?

Thanks
Christian

Including titles and descriptions is not currently a feature of the custom content "insert image" feature. I will see if perhaps I can add this to next release.

In the meantime, you would have to do add captions manually:
Code
<a href="{{path}}01_01.jpg" rel="01" data-popup-title="YOUR TITLE HERE">
You could also use html, but then you must escape the html:
Code
// Escaped: <strong>TITLE HERE</strong><br>Description here
<a href="{{path}}01_01.jpg" rel="01" data-popup-title="<strong>TITLE HERE</strong><br>Description here">
You can use this tool to escape html:

Panorama should be the main focus of next major release. Just finishing some other things now in February, and Panorama should be available in March.

Maps shortly after.

Hi Karl, on a side note, I also vote for "back button with history of vertical scroll". Now in our projects gallery we have a lot of projects and if you enter a folder in the middle, when you hit back you go to top thus losing the position and you have to scroll down again, etc...
Example: Projects
Thanks again for the effort and nice product!
best, G

Right. I was meaning to look into this at some point. Browsers already do this by themselves for "normal" web pages, but for dynamic "AJAX" pages (like in X3), it's a bit more complicated, because we have to control the behavior from within the app.
