About 2 months ago I said I was working on a different way to view individual media, incorporating the lightbox_plus technology into a PGV module.
With many thanks to Nigel [nigelo] for enormous help, and patience, we have arrived with a first pass.
A new "Album" tab has been created for the indi page.
When not logged in, and if not the Admin, the Album tab replaces the Media tab.
If Admin, both Album and Media tabs are available.
Essentially the media is collected and split into four rows of thumbnails (Photo, Document, Census, and Other)
The media is sorted based upon the gedrec "TYPE" setting (details in the album_readme)
Any media with no "TYPE" goes into the "Other" row, as well as any media (PDF files, and audio and video TYPES) which cannot be handled by "lightbox".
Rows Photo, Document, and Census use the lightbox viewer, and the Other row uses the normal popup display window of PGV.
3 core files have been modified (individual.php, individual_ctrl.php, and functions_print_facts.php)
It has been tested only on 4.1 beta 4, and 4.1 SVN, so I have provided both quick and advanced installations, depending on the version you have.
It will not work with PGV 3.3.8 (sorry) and may need additional hacking for 4.0 (I will work on 4.0 depending on the release of 4.1 stable)
Try before download?
It has been tested with sites with multiple gedcoms.
All files and installation instructions are in the
