FAQ

How to set the number of thumbnails, I have this portrait images in the slider.. the navigation only shows 2 of them, while there is space for 4?

You can’t set the number of thumbnails displayed per ‘page’ because it’s calculated automatically from thumb width / height and thumb space. So try to lower that for more thumbs. Also there is another parameter “nav_arrow_size:40” – this is the space that is allocated for each arrow ( so at default 80 px are substracted for the arrows ) and you can also lower this for more thumbs.

is it possible to put a link on the images ( the main image offcourse not the thumbnails) Yes, sure, write

<a href="#"><img src="img/def1.jpg" /></a>

instead of

<img src="img/def1.jpg" />

I try to add links in the description but it breaks the script

Propably you are doing something like this

BAD :

data-description="My link is <a href="http://something">here</a>"

The problem is that the ” inside href breaks the ” from the data-description. The solutions is use ’ instead of “

GOOD :
data-description='My link is <a href="http://something">here</a>'
Hi. How can i stop the auto-sliding of the phoenixgallery

you have in the parameters


        targetgallery.phoenixgallery({
        transition_type:"random",
        nav_type:"thumbsa",
        nav_position:"up",
        thumb_width:100,
        thumb_height:75,
        thumb_space:20,
        nav_space:25,
        nav_arrow_size:40,
        settings_shadow:"off",
        settings_autoresize:"off",
        settings_autoheight:"off",
        settings_pauseonrollover:"off",
        settings_usethumbarrows:'off',
        transition_strips_x:10,
        transition_strips_y:5,
        arrows_normal_alpha:1,
        arrows_roll_alpha:0.3,
        thumbs_normal_alpha:1,
        thumbs_roll_alpha:0.3
        })
to disable slideshow just add a new parameter settings_slideshow and set it to off like this

        targetgallery.phoenixgallery({
        transition_type:"random",
        nav_type:"thumbsa",
        nav_position:"up",
        thumb_width:100,
        thumb_height:75,
        thumb_space:20,
        nav_space:25,
        nav_arrow_size:40,
        settings_shadow:"off",
        settings_autoresize:"off",
        settings_autoheight:"off",
settings_slideshow:"off",
        settings_pauseonrollover:"off",
        settings_usethumbarrows:'off',
        transition_strips_x:10,
        transition_strips_y:5,
        arrows_normal_alpha:1,
        arrows_roll_alpha:0.3,
        thumbs_normal_alpha:1,
        thumbs_roll_alpha:0.3
        })
For some reason when I add a link to the image the zoom effect no longer functions.

That is because the attributes data-initialZoom, data-finalZoom, data-effectTime etc. need to be on the direct child of the gallery div. For example if you have


effect will work, but if you add link like this
<a href="#"></a> 
effect won’t work. You need to move the attributes to the direct child of the gallery like so:
<a href="#" data-finalzoom="2"></a>
