Support » Plugin: WP Photo Album Plus » How to text-link to an album?

  • Resolved deepcore2


    I would like to be able to just “click here for the album” in my text. I might be missing it, but is there a wppa type that does something like that? [wppa type=”link” album=”65″]click here for the album[/wppa] maybe?
    Best regards, Peter

    This is method 1:

    [wppa type="landing"][/wppa]
    Click <a onclick="document.location=document.location+'?wppa-occur=1&wppa-album=5&wppa-cover=0'" >here</a> for the album

    wppa-occur=1 means: it is the first wppa thing on the page (occurrance)
    wppa-album=5 means: it is album with id=5
    wppa-cover=0 means: i want to see the thumbnails

    other options are:
    wppa-cover=1 means: i want to see the album cover
    wppa-slide=1 means: i wantt to see the slideshow. (requires wppa-cover=0)

    It will not work straitaway with ajax, and you will still see: Click here for the album
    after the page reloads.

    This is method 2:

    <div id="my-wppadiv" style="display:none" >
    [wppa type="thumbs" album="5"][/wppa]
    <span id="my-span" >Click <a onclick="jQuery('#my-wppadiv').show();jQuery('#my-span').hide();" >here</a> for the album</span>

    Enter this with the wp page/post editor in Text mode, Not in Visual !!!!!

    works immediately
    the text in the <span> element disappears after clicking

    The code is generated on page load, so do not do this if performance is the issue why you want to do this, but only when layout is the issue.
    more coding

    My preferance? method 2.

    Thanks for both methods. They open the album in the post, which is cool to start with. I was actually looking for an link to open the album page as a new page. I can do it like:
    Het <a href="">foto album</a> van
    But when I later re-arrange the landing page structure (which is moved to zzssooi for now) the links will change. Also the zzsooi stuff does not look nice in the url.
    So if you may have an alternative for this, that would be great.

    You can only link to a page that shows the album, not to an album itsself. So you still have to manage the page – currently ‘zzssooi/foto-albums-11/’ – outside the scope of wppa. Wppa does not associate albums with pages.

    If you enable Petty links in Table IV-A6, you can change the linkurl into:

    Ok, thanx. Will figure out how to work with it.
