[sspd gallery="6" limit="10" tags="technology" sort_on="captured_on" sort_direction="DESC"]

This will output the 10 most recent photos of gallery 6 which are tagged with "technology".

Using captions

Image captions are automatically generated using image metadata. You can define different captions for preview images and images presented by FancyBox. Use placehoders like %placeholder% in your caption definitions and define how dates will be formatted.

List of allowed placeholders:

  • %caption%: The image caption as provided by Director. If the caption is not set in Director, the IPTC caption is used instead.
  • %byline%: The IPTC byline
  • %city%: The IPTC city
  • %country%: The IPTC country
  • %date%: The image capture date from the EXIF record

Date formatting: Use common PHP date formats.

Using HTML in your captions: You may use the following HTML elements and attributes:

<div style="">, <p style="">, <b>, <i> <strong>, <em>, <br>

Example: <b>%caption%</b> (%date%)<br><i>Photograph by %byline%</i>

Known Issues

  • A bug in the Director API v. 1.5.0 beta generates a wrong result when a query with multiple tags is done. See SSP Director Forum.
  • photo grids and photo feeds don't work for smart galleries and albums. (Seems to be a Director bug.)
  • The plugin currently doesn't check if the photo feed feature is installed correctly.
  • The photo feeds don't show the real sizes of the downloadable enclosures, but the sizes of the originals.
