That is fantastic, Karl! I can't wait to have the URL option... Will that be a global setting for all pages, or something that can be set on individual folders? Either way, it will be a great help!

BTW, do you send out email notifications for new version releases? I don't think I've ever received one...

I'm glad you like my photography!

I think it will be for individual folders, although we could perhaps allow for a global setting also. Which one is it you are looking for?

We haven ´t been sending out emails for updates earlier, but you can subscribe to replies in this post -> viewtopic.php?t=3241 and you will receive an email every time we update it!

I would like to have individual folder settings for the slideshow end function -- as I want to direct the user to different places depending on which slideshow they chose, etc. This is going to be a great new feature!
Thanks Karl

ok, I have now added a new "url" option for the image.slideshow.end_event setting.

To use it, you must first set "url" in the image.slideshow.end_event setting in admin. Thereafter, you must enable the "url1" attribute in settings.attributes.folder. When accessing your folders in the admin, you will now see a field "Url1", where you can fill in the destination link for each folder for this event. If you leave some fields empty, this folder will be treated as default "loop" setting.

This can be used for example to go to a specific page internally in your gallery, by setting URL:
Code
#/content/folder/
By default, the URL opens in the "_SELF" window, but you can set a new window by using the following method in your URL:
Code
/folder/somefile.jpg*_blank
This feature will be available shortly!

Have a question (thought I'd post it here since it's related to the topic) - have number of directiories with pictures, default setting is the slideshow - I set the end event to url and the attribute to another folder - however once the first slideshow end it shows thumbnail page rather than start another slideshow - is it possible to somehow make it start another one ?
Ideally I would like to have once continuous loop of slideshows...

Also does same url setting work out of the filemod slideshow ?
Regards,
KZ

kz: When using the event to URL, and then using an "internal link", it will interprete your internal link:

#/folder/folder/ - means it will go to to folder/thumbnails
#/folder/folder/image.jpg - means it will go directly to an image in a folder

I suggest you try to point the link directly to an image to start in image mode, or slideshow mode ...

Unfortunately, the URL settings dont work for the slideshow filemod.

Added new slideshow "END" event option
- Choose between the following events once the slideshow reaches the last image:
# loop - loops the slideshow from last image back to first image (default)
# stop - stops the slideshow on last image
# thumbnails - goes to thumbnails mode after last image is displayed
# startpath - Loads the startpage/startpath after last image is displayed
# url - Go to a specific internal or external url after last image is displayed.*
- Only works in autoplay slideshow mode, eg. does not execute if user is browsing images manually.
- The new setting is available in admin -> settings.image.slideshow.end_event

*To use this option, you must also enable "url1" in settings.attributes.folder, and from there you can set separate links for each folder.
Hiya, is there an option to stop the manual browsing at the end? I don't use the sildeshow wut don't want the folder to manually loop. thx

Did you try going to admin -> settings -> image.slideshow.end_event ... set it to "stop"?

Yes I did, but nothing changes, like I said I don't use the slideshow mode I just don't want the browsing mode to loop in the folder.

thx

Re: Config file for more customization?

We have now added an option to not loop from the last to the first image. This feature will be available in a new version pending for release later this week.

By default, the gallery is still set to loop, but you can change it by going to admin -> settings -> image.slideshow.loop
