View Full Version : Current photo 'next' link to fist image..?
12-15-2005, 02:14 AM
Does anybody know if it is at all possible to have the 'next' link on the current photo link to the first images so you are essentially going around in a circle when viewing the images?
Can just be confusing to some when they click 'next' and nothing happens...

correct me, if I am wrong, but:
when there is no next image, the next-link will not be displayed

Depends how you link to the next images - I'd like people to be able to go round in a circle though...
Is to be used for my folio - http://digerati.farfromreal.com/folio/ - so there sort of is not start nor finish to the images I'm displaying..

people are all so uncreative with the language-file, but there is big potential there as well, without any hacks!
why not try to do something with the language-file?
It sits in the folder /lang
if you use english language, make a backup of lang-english.php and then start to experiment with the following entries there:
$lang_no_previous = "No Previous Image";
$lang_no_next = "No Next Image";
try to integrate for example the following code there:
$lang_no_previous = "<a href='index.php?showimage=1'>startover</a>";
for sure you must enter the number of the very first image in your PP
be aware to use apostrophes instead of "
this is just an idea, but it could work, I myself did not try it

Hrmm.. just tested that idea, tis a good one, but this obviously becomes an issue of how to call the links...
At the moment i'm using
Obviously this doesn't work so well when you get to either end as it's not clear that there isn't anywhere to go.. hence my problem.
If I use <IMAGE_PREVIOUS_TITLE> to make use of $lang_no_next, then when there is an image, it displays its full title and I only ever want it to say "prev || next"
If I use <IMAGE_NEXT_TITLE> I can set 'prev' and 'next', but it doesn't display anything when it gets to either end..
I could be mistaken in any of that as i'm no PP expert, but that's what happened when playing with the lang file..

so maybe my idea will not work so well, as I told you, I did not try it
12-16-2005, 05:40 AM
Don't be sorry! Is a good idea - but perhaps needs to be tweaked a bit.. but there's also a good chance I'm missing something too *grin*

Just thought I'd let you know that after some fiddling, I've managed to find a way to do this..
I ended up editing the index.php file, and with using <image_next_link> which by default says "next" or is blank if there is no next, I added $lang_no_next where the value was previously left blank in the index.php file. I guess you could edit any of them, but I felt this was the best to use. . .
From there you can just modify the lang file to say whatever you want.. :D

that is a good hint and suggestion!
But please keep your index.php when you update PP your modification will be overwritten
