Multithumb image plugin for Joomla Many popup types, gallery, watermarks and much more!
I am away from home October 4-23. In this period I will not be able to reply to mails. You can help both me and yourself by not mailing me until the end of the month. If I come home to a whole lot of new support mails, I will probably never have the time to get through them. A new version of Multihumb is expected around November 1.

Multithumb is a multi-purpose image plugin for Joomla that can automatically create thumbnails and popups of the original images, as well as resize the full-size images or add a watermark to them. It can even scramble the images names so that people cannot guess their original non-watermark locations. For articles shown in blog mode, it can create a link from the first image to the full article for better user navigation. It can also create a simple photo gallery from any folder by just including one of the images from the folder and give it the description (alt text) "mt_gallery" (or using the new tagging feature). Multithumb works with both normal images and {mosimage} images. See the examples and how-to's below for inspiration and instructions!

Multithumb rules!

Processing images takes time! Please note that when you use Multihumb for the first time on a given page, the server has to process all the images which might take quite some time. This especially applies if you use the gallery function. This processing can lead to various server errors. If the error text says something about memory size, try increasing PHP's memory limit using the backend option "PHP memory limit". If the server complains about timeout, change the maximum execution time using the similar named option. Try for example with 60 or 120 seconds. These settings are only effective if PHP safe mode is off! Another remedy is to simply reload the page one or more times. For every reload Multithumb will process more images. When all the images are processed, the page will load normally. Note that some changes in the backend options might trigger a new image processing cycle. This is also the case if you deliberately clear the image cache by using the option "Clear cache on next page load".

NEW VERSION 2.0
Multithumb 2.0 is more versatile than ever. In fact, it is probably one of the most versatile and advanced mambots ever written. Remember, this is "just" a mambot, but it has capabilities you would expect only from full-blown components. Many of the new features are ideas and requests from users, like watermarks, resizing of full images, auto-galleries with image descriptions and link to main article.

Here is a list of some of the new features in Multithumb 2.0:
Watermarks Supports both popup images and images shown in content Watermark images can be true alpha blend PNG images or any GIF, JPG og PNG image with manually set transparent background color User definable watermark position Language packs Installable language packs for Multithumb's frontend Manual thumbnails You can create your own thumbnails and let Multithumb use them instead Thumbnail proportions Choose between best fit (keeping aspect ration), crop to fit, fill out with background color, stretch (distort proportions) Scrambled image names Automatic resize of images Can resize both popup images and images shown in content Resize by pixels or percentage of screen size New popup types: Slimbox, Greybox and Thickbox Multihumb now supports six popup types: normal, lightbox, slimbox, greybox, thickbox, thumbnail expansion Thumbnail expansion now works perfect with captions too! "Intelligent" handling of compatibility issues with other javascript libraries For example, if mootools.js is already included in your template, Multithumb will not try add it again Auto-gallery with individual image descriptions You can add a text file with the same name as the image used for the gallery, and Multithumb will use the content of this file for image descriptions It will even create the description file for you, ready to fill out!

Link to main article in blog mode Instead of showing a popup when viewing the article in blog mode, Multithumb can create a link from the first image to the main article. Or it can just create a plain, inactive thumbnail Works from sub folders out-of-the-box You no longer have to modify the javascript files if you run Joomla from a sub folder on the server Native thumbnail generation Multithumb no longer uses an external thumbnail library Informative error handling with javascript popup messages Like if Multithumb can't find the watermark file, or if the server does not support the needed image functions Extremely configurable But because of that, also a bit confusing for new users :-) Parameter override, allowing for multiple configurations even in same article Most of Multithumb's settings can be overridden in the content by including the proper tags, like: {multithumb popup_type=greybox full_width=400} which will make Greybox the new popup style and images 400px wide The override works until the end of the article or until it is overridden again. There is even a handy online tool dedicated to creating the tags for you! Many new options Backend much better arranged Improved and optimized code

NEW IN VERSION 1.1
Multithumb is really becoming "multi". For example, it can now also process {mosimage} tags directly with all the features you have for normal images. There is even a simple and yet powerful gallery function where all you have to do is to include any image from a given folder and give it the description (alt text) "mt_gallery". This triggers the mambot to generate a full blown photo gallery! Furthermore Multithumb 1.1 is much more configurable than before, and the layout of the admin interface is improved. Please note that some of the default values has changed, so take a look at the mambot admin and see if the values are as you want them. You will want to this anyway because of the many new options! Here is a list of what's new in version 1.1: Can also process {mosimage} tags Multithumb must come before MosImage in the mambot list for this to work efficiently! Simple but powerful gallery function Just insert any image from a given folder and give it the description (alt text) "mt_gallery". Works also with {mosimage} tags! You can now both include and exclude individual pages by using the {multithumb} or {nomultihumb} tags You can give a list of categories where you want to include or exclude Multithumb It's possible to specify more than one class that Multithumb should work on. For example you can tell it to process only images with the classes "mypics" or "holiday" or whatever. Nice if you want it to work on just one or a few images in a given article. You can also tell Multithumb to ignore an image by setting the alt text to "mt_ignore:real alt text". The image will then be shown plain vanilla! This feature is needed with MosImage because you can't easily apply a custom style class. Optionally turn of Multithumb processing in blog mode (when viewing the introtext only). Thumbs generated by Multithumb can be assigned a class name for improved styling You can style Multithumb directly in the mambot interface! It's now easy to change the caption font, border or color etc. Improved cache handling. Don't need to manually clear the cache if you change thumbnail size. However, if you for some reason find the thumbnails wrong, just select the option "Clear cache on next page load". Much more configurable Improved admin interface Several bugfixes Optimized code

NEW IN VERSION 1.04
Caption is shown in lightbox popup Corrected a missing </a> tag

NEW IN VERSION 1.03
Now you can specify how many thumbnails are shown in a lightbox set. For example, you can have a slideshow with related 20 pictures, but only show the first one. When you click that thumbnail, the rest of the pictures will be be visible by using the Next or Prev buttons on the lightbox popup.

NEW IN VERSION 1.02
I found it inconvenient that Multithumb worked on all my pages. Although it is possible to tell it only to operate on images with a certain class, it is a bit tedious if you have many images. Now in version 1.02 there is a new option: "Apply only to tagged content" which means that Multithumb will only process pages containing the tag. The tag can be anywhere in the content, but it is more effective if you put it in the beginning.

Simple thumbnail and popup
First select the desired thumbnail size and popup type in the backend, such as lightbox. Then include the image in the editor in any way you like: directly with the editor's image icon or indirectly with the {mosimage} tag. Note that the image will not be thumbnailed when you look at it in the content. This is normal, but you can resize the image in the editor by dragging the corners if it bothers you. This will not affect the final result. If you give the image a description (alt text) this will be used as the image title. Below is shown how the image to the right is made with {mosimage}. Simple thumbnail and popup example

The six popup types
Multithumb now supports six different popup types. For those called something with 'box', Multithumb uses third-party javascript libraries and style sheets. For information, bug reports and suggestions regarding the popup scripts themselves, please navigate to their respective homepages using the links below. Normal popup This is more or less a plain old popup with the image opened in a new window, adjusted to fit the image Lightbox A slick and very popular popup style nowadays. Not all browers will show Lightbox correctly. Slimbox A lightweight variant of Lightbox. Looks the same but uses another set of libraries. Lightbox and Slimbox are mutually exclusive - they cannot be used on the same page at the same time! (But no problem with different pages on the same site) Greybox A somewhat different approach to the same idea as Lightbox. Many people find it very nice. Thickbox Yet another lightbox variant. Thickbox requires that your page has a valid DOCTYPE. Thumbnail expansion Not really a popup. The thumbnail "expands" when clicked on, displaying the full image directly in content. Not very useful for photo galleries, but good for images that illustrate the accompanying text.

Important note The box popups can be tricky. They make heavy use of complicated javascript and DHTML, and are very fragile. Just a single line of innocent looking javascript code can break them totally. Greybox won't work with <body onload="somecodehere;">. Instead you must use another construction: <script>AJS.AEV(window, 'load', function() {somecodehere;});</script>. OpenComment will break Greybox because of this, but I have made a fix. Lightbox, Slimbox and Thickbox are mutually exclusive. They cannot be used on the same page without interfering with each other. Normally that is not a problem but it means that I cannot show examples with Slimbox and Lightbox on this page. You can use the different box popups on different pages on the same site without problems. The box popups can sometimes also interfere with other scripts on the site and refuse to work. If so, see if one of the other variants will work. For questions and support, please go to the box popups' respective homepages!!!

Image sets
Image sets are groups of related images linked together, making a kind of gallery. Follow the instructions for Simple thumbnail and popup above for each image, but give every image in the set the same description (alt text) which will then be the name of the gallery. This works for lightbox, slimbox and greybox popups. The images to the left are made with {mosimage} exactly as shown in the example above, except that each image has the alt-text "image sets".

Thumbnail sizes and proportions
Multithumb 2.0 is pretty advanced when it comes to creating thumbnails. I the backend you can specify the width and height of thumbnails, but the resulting thumbnail can vary a lot depending on how you handle the thumbnail proportions. Lets say you want to make thumbnails from 800 x 600 images, but you want 200 x 200 thumbnails. Obviously you can't just reduce the image to make it fit perfectly into a square, so then what? WithMultithumb 2.0 you can choose between: Best fit, keeping proportions The image will be reduced until it is fully framed by the square. The longest side is now 200. The final thumbnail will take the constrained proportions (here 200 x 150) Crop to fit, cutting one side The image will be reduced until it "fits over" the square. The shortest side is now 200. The surplus parts of the longest side will be cut away. Fill out with background Like best fit, but instead of constraining the thumbnail size, the thumbnail is fill out with the selected background color. Stretch, distort proportions The image will be reduced and squeezed into the 200 x 200 frame. Depending on the subject, this might look good or bad. If you set only one side, the other side will be set accordingly, keeping proportions. In this case it often looks better to just set a height (leaving the width empty) as this will give a nice thumbnail flow if you have images in both landscape and portrait orientation. Here are different thumbnail sizes using best fit. I have chosen Greybox to group them together. Note that the full sizes are the same.

Here is the same image with 120 x 120 thumbnails, but using different proportions.

Yet another option in Multithumb 2.0 is manual thumbnails. If you want total control of the thumbnails, you can create them yourself! Just create an image with the same name as the original image, but with .thumb stuffed in and put it in the same location. For example, for the image my_nice_pic.jpg the thumbnail should be called my_nice_pic.thumb.jpg. Always use lowecase for the thumb part. The thumbnail image should have the same proportions as the final thumbnail, but it can be an advantage to make it bigger (full size). Then you can always change the thumbnail size in the backend without having to recreate the manual thumbnails. But of course, you can also make it the final size from the beginning, like 75 x 75. Just never make it smaller, or it will not work at all, and don't make it just a bit bigger or the image will look blurry. Make it exactly the same size or at least twice as big. Manual thumbnails are especially well suited for artists who wants full control of their thumbnails without missing any of Multithumb's unique features. These examles is from Natascha Roeoesli's personal artwork site where you can see more great examples of manual thumbnails.

Resizing images
You can resize the full images with the backend options "Full width" and "Full height". Also make sure "Resize images" is checked. Select what to do if the original and resized images have different proportions with the option "Full-size image proportions". The principles for resizing is just like describe for Thumbnail sizes and proportions. If you set one of the dimensions to zero, the image will be constrained only by the other side. For example, setting the height to 200 and width to 0 will make all images 200px high, adjusting the width accordingly. This is often the setting that looks best, because it creates a nice imaginary line between each image in a slideshow instead of making the images dance up and down. Tip: You can opt to have the size relative to the user's screen size. If you set the height to 50%, a 1024 X 768 screen will get images 384 px high, whereas as 1400 x 1050 screen will get images with a height of 525 px. But remember that for each resolution, a copy of the image will be created on the server.

Using watermarks
All the pictures on this page are watermarked with Multithumb. Let's now see how you do it. First create the watermark file using your favorite image tool. Two watermark types are supported: true alpha blended PNG images and plain PNG, JPG or GIF files where you manually select the transparent color. You will get the best result with real alpha blending as this allows for anti aliasing (which in the transparent color mode often will look bad). Make sure the background is a transparent layer and make the blending of the foreground layer say 25%. This will create a nice discrete watermark. It is not difficicult to create a true transparent PNG image, but it is beyond the scope of this tutorial to tell you how. However, here is an easy-to-follow guide using a free image program. The other option is to create a plain image with a given background (usually black). Then, in the backend, specify the transparant color in hex form, like #000000 for black. Also set the transparency level of the watermark. The background will be totally transparent, so the the transparency level refers to the foreground of the image. Experiment with different levels. Save the watermark file in any image folder and write the path to it in the option "Watermark file". By setting the left and top positions of the watermark you can move it around on the main image. Use negative values to position relative to the opposite side. Leave a value empty to center the watermark by that dimension. Example placements (left X top): 10 X 10 : Upper left corner 10 X -10: Lower left corner -10 X -10: Lower right corner <empty> X -10: Horizontally centered 10px from bottom Both empty: Centered on the main image Hint: make the watermark as small as possible to contain the text or logo, as this allows for the most versatile positioning on the main image. Here are the same watermark placed differently.

watermark top left

watermark top right

watermark bottom right

watermark bottom left

watermark top centered

watermark centered

There is one caveat with watermarks you should now or you might get confused. If you change the watermark postion or the watermark file itself, you should clear the cache (using "Clear cache on next page load" in the backend) or you will not see the changes. This is because the files are cached for effectivity. If you need a simple watermark to play with, you can steal mine. Right click on the link and select "Save link target" or whatever it is called in your browser. The image looks empty - it's because it's transparent!

Creating an automatic gallery
With Multithumb you can create simple galleries automatically by adding just one image from a given folder. Add the image you want to be the first in the gallery as described in Simple thumbnail and popup. Then prefix the description (alt text) with mt_gallery: (including the colon), for example mt_gallery:Images from Italy. This will tell Multithumb to create a gallery named "Images from Italy" with all the images in the folder. Make sure you have set the wanted popup style in the backend (lightbox, slimbox or greybox). Now tell how many thumbnails you want to show for the gallery in the content using the option "Max. thumbnails in image sets". If you don't have too many images, you can select "All". Finally specify how many thumbs across you want in the gallery by using the option "Number of gallery columns". For example, if you have chosen to show 9 thumbnails and set the number of columns to 3, the thumbnails will have a 3 x 3 layout. With Multithumb 2.0 you can also add descriptions to the individual images in the gallery. If Multithumb finds a file with same name as the galleri start image , but ending with .txt, it will use the images and descriptions for those images, and in the set order. For example, let's say you initiate the gallery by adding the image img_005.jpg. Give it the alt text "mt_gallery:My Gallery" to tell Multithumb it's a gallery.

http://www.kreacom.dk/index2.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=82&pop=1&page=0&...

Then create a text file called img_005.jpg.txt and add the individual files and descriptions like this: img_005.jpg Grand Canyon img_008.jpg Colorado River img_006.jpg Yosemite img_021.jpg Yellowstone img_010.jpg Niagara Falls Finally save the text file in the image folder. When Multithumb encounters image img_005.jpg, it will find the description file img_005.jpg.txt, load it and start the gallery. It is important to use the same character case as the image file name. Calling it IMG_005.JPG.TXT will fail. Note that .txt must always be lowercase no matter the case of the filename.

Below is shown how I created the gallery in the "More demos" section at the bottom of the page.

Creating an automatic gallery

Overriding default values
You may have noticed the various thumbnail sizes, border options and other settings that vary on this page. That is due to a completely new and extremely strong feature in Multithumb 2.0 - parameter overriding. The options you set in the mambot's backend work globally in Joomla. If you change the thumbnail size, all thumbnails on all pages will reflect the new values. This is often how you want it to work, but not always. You might need a different look and feel on some pages, and that is very easy with Multithumb 2.0. All parameters can be overriden with the construction {multithumb parameter1=value1 parameter2=value2 ... } For example, this will change the thumbnail size and disable captions and watermarks for images following the override: {multithumb thumb_width=150 thumb_height=100 caption_pos=disabled watermark=0} Images before the override are not affected. The override will last until the end of the current page, or until you change it again with another override. So by adding several overrides in the content, you have a very high degree of control. Reverting to default values is easy. There are two ways: {multithumb parameter=default} or {multithumb default) The first option will just restore that value, like {multithumb thumb_width=default thumb_height=default} Whereas the second option will restore all values to the default settings from the backend.

Multithumb Parameter Tool
To make parameter overriding even easier, I have created this online tool to create the tags and parameters for you. This tool will ensure that you use the correct syntax when overriding settings.

Language packs
With Multithumb 2.0 you don't have to fiddle with the source code to implement a new frontend language for Lightbox popups. An important new feature is installable language packs which means that you can install several languages for Multithumb which will then follow the language setting in the Global Configuration. You can also override the language choice by using the backend option "Language override for Multithumb". 1. It is easy to create a language pack. Start with downloading the English language pack. Note that this pack is not needed in itself as English is the default language for Multithumb, but it's a good basis for new languages. 2. Make a new version of the small icons prevlabel.gif, nextlabel.gif and closelabel.gif. Underline the character you wish to use as a shortcuts for previous, next and close, like "p", "n" and "xoc". Note that you can have more than one character for a shortcut: in this example pressing "x", "o" or "c" will close the lightbox. 3. Edit the language definition file called lang.js in which you define the navigation keys and the text to use for "image x of y". 4. Update the xml file multithumb_english.xml and replace all occurenses of english with the name of the new language. 5. Rename multithumb_english.xml and multithumb_english.php to multithumb_<language>.xml and multithumb_<language>.php

6. Finally zip all the files into a zip file called multithumb_<language>.zip, keeping the correct folder structure. 7. Now you can install the language pack like any other mambot, using menu item Installers > Mambots. 8. Please send the final language pack to me so other users can download it!

Language packs are currently only implemented for Lightbox popups!

FAQ
[Read this first in case of problems!]
Many times problems are caused by people having code from Lightthumb in the index.php file. You can easily test that by opening the page source in your browser and search for the word "lightthumb". If these lines are present, you must remove them from your template index.php.

[How do I use Multithumb?]
You just insert any picture in the content you are working with. You can work with normal images put directly in content, or with {mosimage} images. See the section Simple thumbnail and popup.

Note: It is important that Multithumb comes before MosImage in the mambot list.

[Can Multithumb also work with mosimage tags?]
Yes, just make sure the option "Handle normal images or {mosimage}" is set to Both. If you only want it to work with {mosimage}, select {mosimage} only. Or Normal pictures only if you don't want it to process {mosimage} tags.

[The images are large, can I resize them in the editor?]
Yes, you can make them smaller for your convenience. It does not affect the size in the frontend. If you want to change the size of the resulting images or the thumbnails, go to the mambot backend and change the appropriate options. See the section Resing images and Setting the thumbnail size.

[Can I decide on which pages Multithumb should work?]
Certainly! There are several possibilities depending on what you want: If only want Multithumb to work on a few pages, select "Apply only to content with {multithumb}". Then insert the {multithumb} tag somewhere on these pages. If only want Multithumb to work on most but not all pages, select "Exclude pages with {nomultithumb}". Then insert the {nomultithumb} tag somewhere on the pages you don't want do include. If you want to use Multithumb only in certain categories, list these categories in the field "Only in these categories". Put a semicolon between each category (no spaces!). Example: news;tech;gallery If you want to use Multithumb in all but a few categories, list these categories in the field "NOT in these categories". Put a semicolon between each category (no spaces!). Example: intro;business If you want it to work on just a few images on a given page, but not the rest, use the option "Apply only to these classes" and write the class name or names you want it to process. Separate more class names with space. Finally, you can tell Multithumb to ignore individual images by prefixing the alt text with "mt_ignore:". Example: "mt_ignore:this is is the real alt text". This also works with {mosimage}

[How do I override the default popup method]

7 de 27

11/19/07 5:22 PM

kreacom.dk - Multithumb image plugin for Joomla

http://www.kreacom.dk/index2.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=82&pop=1&page=0&...

You can mix the different popup methods by adding a prefix to the description (alt text), thus overriding the default popup style. mt_none: No popup mt_popup: Normal popup mt_lightbox: Lightbox popup mt_expand: Thumbnail expansion mt_ignore: This will let the image pass unprocessed You must include the colon, like mt_lightbox:my image caption With Multithumb 2.0 you can also use parameter override , like {multithumb popup_type=greybox}

[How do I make a photo gallery with Multithumb?]
Just include any image from the folder you wish to base the gallery on. Then give the image the description (alt text) mt_gallery. This tells Multithumb to create the gallery. Please note that if you have many pictures in the folder, it might take quite some time to generate the thumbnails the first time you view the page. Afterwards, it will load fine. You can name the gallery by using the form mt_gallery:gallery name. Then the gallery name will show up in the lightbox popups. (Not in normal popups). Remember to put a gallery name after the colon or it might not work! By using the option "Number of gallery columns" you can select how many thumbs across you want. If you have many pictures but only want to show one or a few of them as thumbs, go to the mambot interface and select a value for "max. lightbox thumbnails". For example, you might have 25 pictures in the gallery, but you only want to show thumbs for the first three. When people click on of the three thumbs, they will still be presented with the full gallery! Note that the galleri function works best with lightbox, slimbox and greybox popups, but it can also be fine with normal popup. See also Creating an automatic gallery .

[I have both portrait and landscape thumbnails and the gallery does not look pretty!]
Insert this style declaration in the field called CSS styling in the admin interface for Multithumb: td.multithumb { text-align:center; vertical-align: middle; padding: 5px !important; } The code above applies to the auto gallery function only.

[How do I put some vertical space between the icons in the gallery?]
See the faq entry above, "I have both portrait and landscape thumbnails and the gallery does not look pretty!"

[How do I group lightbox images in a set?]
You give the images the same description (alt text). For example, images with the desciption "my holiday" will show up in the same lightbox set. This means that people will be able to browse the pictures in the set by pressing Next and Prev. See the section Image sets .

[My page looks strange. Some elements are on top of the lightbox!]
This should be fixed with Multithumb 2.0 ! The problem is caused by flash content not obeying the so-called z-index. If you are tech minded, here is some info. Maybe I will implemtent the fix in a future version. Multithumb uses this Lightbox library so please follow the link for more info.

[How do I change the font and color of the caption etc?]

11/19/07 5:22 PM

kreacom.dk - Multithumb image plugin for Joomla

http://www.kreacom.dk/index2.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=82&pop=1&page=0&...

Go to the field "CSS styling" and change the styles for div.mtCapStyle (means Multithumb Caption Style). For example, to change the color of the caption text to red, use font: red;

[How do I put a border around the thumbs?]
Multithumb 2.0 has a 2px black border by default. If you don't want that, go to the field "CSS styling" in the backend. Setting the border style to none will remove the borders: Change border: 2px solid black; to border: none;

[My thumbnails don't look quite right!]
They probably just need to be refreshed. Please select the backend option "Clear cache on next page load".

[There is no popup. I just get the image in its original size when I click on it]
Your template index.php is probably missing the mosShowHead() call in the header part. If it's missing, please include this piece of code in the header between the <head> and </head> tags: <?php mosShowHead(); ?> Alternatively, the index.php might include this line which is an older way of doing it (and still valid): <?php include ("includes/metadata.php"); ?> Another reason could be that you have enabled caching in Joomla. It this case the backend menu item System > Clean all caches will probably help. Also make sure to clean the browsers cache!

[The small icons in the lightbox popup are missing or wrong]
This problem should be fixed in Multithumb 2.0 !

[I get only white pages when I use Multithumb]
This can be caused by mainly to problems: The needed graphics libraries are missing (GD2). The memory limit is to small Try inserting this line in the top of multithumb.php just after <?php : ini_set("memory_limit","32M");

[What is the description or alt text you mention constantly?!]
You should always give the images a meaningful description, also called alternative text, or just alt text. If people have chosen not to display images for some reason, the description will be used instead. It also allows people with reading disabilities to make a text reader "read" the images for them. The description is not the same as the title attribute, although some editors incorrectly apply the description to the title attribute. The title is the small popup text you will see if you hold the mouse pointer over the images. Multithumb use the description to mark the images. For example, to tell it that a given image is a lightbox popup regardless of the default setting, prefix the description with mt_lightbox: including the colon.

[How did you make this faq???]
I used a new really amazing mambot, yet to be released! It is based on the moshide mambot.

Download and Installation
Multithumb is installed like any other mambot using using menu item Installers > Mambots. Remember to publish it! If you want Multithumb to process {mosimage} tags, you must make it appear before MosImage in the mambot list.

Build 3 is a maintenance release that fixes a problem with various warning messages sometimes showing up on the page. Also fixed a problem with small images, like emoticons, sometimes getting upsized. Please download the new build. No new features are added. Download Multithumb 2.0 beta 1 build 3 If you have problems with build 3, you can always try one of the previous versions: Multithumb 2.0 beta 1 build 2 Multithumb 1.04 Multithumb 1.11

Language packs
Language packs are installed like normal mambots! The only difference is that they work even if unpublished. So in order to deactivate a language pack, you must uninstall it.

Currently the language packs support lightbox popups only.

I downloaded the rapidshare file listed below, and first got an error installing because the images for slimbox weren't included in the zip file. I copied those images into the slimbox/css folder from the version on this site, re-zipped it, and installed without any problem... Of course, everything is in polish, including all the parameter settings in the plugin interface, but it does seem to be working as expected so far. Hope there's an english version of this in the works... I don't know how to read polish. A work of Art

One thing is the next function doesn't seem to work for Graybox. I gotta go to the last photo to view them all with Previous....it did work so it must have been some other code from something else.....any ideas what it may be?

Great mambot! And for those who are interested in a simple batch file to create a textfile: Code: @echo off dir /B *.jpg>./temp.txt set/p FileList=nul ren temp.txt %FileList%.txt

Usage: Place the above code in a textfile and rename the text file into something.bat Place the created .bat file into the directory where your pics are located (not your webserver but your Windows system, pref. XP) Double click the file and it will create a text file with the name of the jpg that is first in the directory. eg. picture1.jpg.txt In the textfile will be a list of all the images in the directory. All you need to do is add the description text! Hope it helps!! And to the mambot: really great!!! KR, David Superb!

Hello everybody, I want to precise my bug: I set thumb-width and thumb-height to 100. I have a picture on static content site with 232px width and 89px height. Nothing happens on the site because the image is lower than 100px height. I put in the site a picture with 500px width and 192px height. The result is that multithumb now reacts an creates an image with a width of 100. So every picture in my Webspace must be higher than 100px width and 100px height. I hope I could help. regards Markus Wortmann PS: It is still a very great Mambot. Great feature

Just a tip for Joomfish users: when using multithumb in a site with Joomfish, you must clear the "Disable Multithumb in these categories" field to make multithumb load the javascript libraries in other languages. In this particular case, if you want to remove multithumb in any content, follow the "Overriding default values" section on this page.

See http://www.bykrishmandal.com/Travelogues/Rocky-Mountain-National-Park.html for example. 1) I started the gallery using the file RMNP-1.jpg, and added mt_gallery:RMNP to the alt tag of that first file 2) There are no other files brought in using the Image content previewer of Joomla. The rest of the images are in the same directory, FTP'd there separately. There are 66 images in that directory. 3) I've added the filename RMNP-1.jpg.txt into that same directory. The problems: as you can see, the mambot is only showing 44 images. It looks like it's skipping some files. Initially, it was every 2nd file (so 33 thumbs and images showed up). After many many SHIFT-REFRESH tries, the number went up to 44. It seems that I cannot get any more images to show up even though I've set to show all thumbnails, and increased the timeout to 4 minutes, and increased the memory use to highest in the mambot preferences panel. Also, it seems that the mambot is assigning the name RMNP-1 to more than just the image named RMNP-1.jpg (see the alt text mouseovers). When I asked for captions, all images were captioned with RMNP-1. Any help would be very appreciated. You can contact me at krishmandal(at)gmail.com if you want to send a private answer. Thanks. memory problem

I like Multithumb. The version 1.1 worked very well on my website http://www.joomlagate.com. Now, I have Multithumb 2.0 beta 3 on http://www.joomlagate.com. Today when I try to open one article at frontend, it tell me: Code: Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 16777216 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 3283644 bytes) in /disk1/web/joomlagate/www/mambots/content/multithumb.php on line 364

What is wrong? I remember that I had set the memory usage to 16MB in the parameters of Multithumb. Thanks. Bug width the width limit

I can confirm that Slimbox and Greybox are working perfectly on Safari Apple browsers
Written by Guest on 2007-07-19 21:23:37

.

Could you please let us know whether this mambot will work on Apple browsers (Safari) I like the functions and it is working fine on IE6, IE7 and Firefox... But I don't have any Apple computer for any tests...

After trying several image gallery's. This is the best because of the freedom of displaying images. I'm loving it. Just tested and love it.
Written by Guest on 2007-07-11 12:19:37

I just wanted to say, I just tested this product and I love it so far. It's so flexible and that's what's important. If there was anything to improve this product, perhaps a readme or instructional PDF would help. As I mentioned below I used Simple Image Gallery Pro and found that it did not align certain things the way I would have liked and did not always consistently place the images in the same place. This however is superb good job! Gavin. Have used Simple Image Gallery Pro - Thi

Hi there, Just wanted to say, thanks for this tool and I look forward to further developments. I installed and purchased simple image gallery pro, but it doesn't always function the way I like it to and it does not have individual alt tags either which I don't like. I like the flexbility demonstrated on this page. I have not yet used it however if I do find it useful I'll definately make a donation. Thanks again and keep up the good work. Regards, Gavin.

Written by Guest on 2007-06-28 18:45:43

Thanks for this wonderful tools! I have only one remark: it will be pretty to can constrain image by width or height in percent to display the image in its maximum size without scrolling bar. (I don't succeed to do this with actual possibilities) For example, "Full-size width in pixels or percent" will be 98% and "Full-size height in pixels or percent" will be 70% to avoid scrolling. For a 1024*768px screen, the area to display images will be 1004*538px (ie : the ratio W/H is 1.86). Now if W/H image's ratio is smaller than 1.86 => resize vertically to match the 70% screen height specified If W/H image's ratio is greater than 1.86 => resize horizontally to match the 98% screen width specified thib489-NO-@-SPAM-hotmail.com just great!
