Slideshow transition time

Probably going daft here, on an ordinary album page I can find the slideshow transition type and loop or not loop but not the slide duration.

Any ideas, I am sure i changed it to a very short time in BL 1 but never changed it back  to something reasonable

Re: Slideshow transition time

What module or album presentation type are we talking about?

Re: Slideshow transition time

Just checked with  Baclight 1 setup and it does not have an option to change the slide duration so now doubting my memory.

So to refrash the question Is there a way to change the slide duration in a Pangolin Album slideshow.?

Re: Slideshow transition time

it’s going to be in that fancy box js code mentioned in the post linked to above. Also in that post is a link to the Fancybox documentation. Look under Options. In the first section you’ll find slide duration and transition duration options.
Look for those in the code itself. You may need to add them.
You can either edit the file, save and upload it to your site, or try the method Matt described.

Since Backlight 2 isn’t installed by uploading all the files from your computer, you’ll either need to download the file from your site and edit, save, and re-upload (probably the safest way) or edit it directly on the server through your ftp program.

Re: Slideshow transition time

We discussed this issue with BL 1, http://community.theturninggate.net/vie … hp?id=8580


And at the time it was hard wired but on the todo list for future development.

Rod also published a tip on the issue, the line numbers are probably different for BL 2, http://ttg-tips-and-tricks.barbeephoto. … ide-shows/

Re: Slideshow transition time

Thanks but it is not the Vegas or Galleria slide duration it is the Pangolin Album. It looks like it is in the Fancy box code as Rod pointed me to. Just need to figure out If then How I can change it using PHPPlugins

Re: Slideshow transition time

Found what i think is the code required

   
slideShow : {speed : 1000}

so tried to add it to myPHPPlugin as
   
    echo '
    <script>
    $.fancybox.slideShow : {
        speed : 1000
       }
    </script>
    ';
This gave me no errors on page load but did nothing. I am afraid I am now outside my comfort zone so help ould be apperciated

Re: Slideshow transition time

Did you remember to clear template cache as well?

Re: Slideshow transition time

What is the full phplugins function that you used? What you posted won’t work by itself.

Re: Slideshow transition time

this appears to work:

function scripts() {
    echo '
<script>
$.fancybox.defaults.slideShow.speed = 5000;
</script>
';
}

Re: Slideshow transition time

Cleared the Template Cache, Slimmed down my PHPPlugin file, checked it was beign referenced in the Album Page Template, clearted browser cache, used ingognito window.  Still no luck.
This is my full PHPPlugin file
<?php

function user_load($style, $path) {
  $g_tsvrl = explode(' ', $style); // Extract gallery type
  define ('G_STYLE', strtoupper($g_tsvrl[1])); // and set global for later
  $g_path = str_ireplace('\\','/',$path); // change \ to /
  $chunks = explode('/',$g_path); // and put into array
  define ('G_PATH', strtoupper($chunks[count($chunks)-2])); // gallery folder name is second to last
  //define ( 'TTG_SITE', ''); // set new site root for navigation, resources, etc.
}

if (defined('BACKLIGHT_HOOK')) {
    require_once(realpath(BACKLIGHT_HOOK).'/modules/module-designer/application/helpers/APHPlugins.php');
}

class PHPlugins extends APHPlugins
{

// Adds custom
function scripts() {
    echo '
<script>
$.fancybox.defaults.slideShow.speed = 10000;
</script>
';
}
// ****************************************************************************************************
// END USER FUNCTIONS
} ?>

Re: Slideshow transition time

I'm using the exact same thing here: http://backlight-2-100.barbeephoto.com/ … om-laptop/
Can you share a link to an album?

Re: Slideshow transition time

try clearing your browser cache. When I looked at the slideshow, the timing was 10 seconds.

Re: Slideshow transition time

It works, me being dumb.
Since coming back and adding your code I started testing on a galleria slideshow not an album slideshow.
So thanks for the help am]nd sorry about the confusion
