I have a page at https://witches.chat/index.php?page=show-sigils

It shows a lot of images. I'd like it to only show 100 images at a time, instead of over 1000 on a single page. Is there a way to do this with a comcode or tempcode?

Sorry no one replied quickly.
Looks like it could just be a gallery?
You can embed a gallery using the main_gallery_embed block, and it supports pagination.

Or maybe you don't want to do that as you want them fully embedded, no thumbnailing?

That should still be possible with the main_gallery_embed block, but would be a little more work.

You'd need to pass a guid parameter to the block. Let's suppose you set the guid to 'embedded_gallery'. And you put the images in a gallery named 'some_gallery_name'.

Code

[block="some_gallery_name" pagination="1" guid="embedded_gallery"]main_gallery_embed[/block]

Then you'd need to edit the GALLERY_IMAGE template to put out different content based on the guid.

Code

{+START,IF,{$EQ,{_GUID},embedded_gallery}}
<img alt="{TITLE}" src="{FULL_URL*}" />
{+END}
{+START,IF,{$NEQ,{_GUID},embedded_gallery}}
(original contents of the template goes here)
{+END}

I just tested with a test image in a gallery and this seems to work (I didn't test the pagination but I don't see why that wouldn't work).

  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
