Topic: Description Info

Hi there,
I cannot add a description to the back of my photos. What is the code needed to make it work? It shows up blank.

I set this - fo.addVariable("showFlipButton", "true");

and for the description I tried

<title>My Title</title>
<description>My Text</description>

Re: Description Info

Are you using flickr? If so you can not add descriptions with the XML.

Re: Description Info

Looks like the captions are there but the full caption is not showing up, try the following for starters.

You need to remove the following extraneous code form the bottom your gallery.xml

            <description><![CDATA[This is a HTML text description. Supported tags are <b>bold</b>, <u>underline</u>, <i>italics</i>, linebreaks<br>and <font color="#ff0000" size="60">font tags</font>. Hyperlinks are not supported.]]></description>

        
        

your gallery.xml:

<tiltviewergallery>
    <photos>

Re: Description Info

Ok thanks,

now what?

Re: Description Info

In your html reduce the descriptionFontSize from 152.

        fo.addVariable("descriptionFontSize", "152");

Re: Description Info

lol oops

ok I did that, Thank you .. any other suggestions ?

Re: Description Info

They are there, but small, the default size is 32. I would try playing around to get the size you want. If you are still not seeing them try clearing your browsers cache.

Re: Description Info

Hi everyone..
Ok so I can see the text on the back side of the images on every computer except mine.. so that problem is solved.


Now I was wondering, is there any way to move the text away from the edge?
Like in the demo on the flip side the text is butt right up against the yellow and the white border. Can we move the text inward somehow??

thanks.
