Topic: Hello all! New user here with questions
I've purchased svPro and svManager for my latest job. I've been working on customizing the layout and I've finally got what I wanted. I have a few questions for you guys.
I wanted to go with svManager because I want to be able to allow the client to create new and edit existing galleries. The svManager interface is simple enough and I've set up defaults to match my test gallery so there will be less the client has to pay attention too.
Q1. Image resize function. I'm having some issues with the image resize function. I have set the maxwidth = 690px (730px total with 20px frame), and maxheight = 580px (620px total with 20px frame). However, I have set these to be the default sizes, yet whenever I upload images using resize, it always uses the 690px width value even when resizing height on portrait oriented images? I'm not really a fan of this, because I would like to have it only be 580px tall. I have on auto sizing, but I don't like to leave image interpolation up to the java. Am I doing something wrong? This was a similar result when I created a gallery locally through the PS CS3 script.
I could create an action set in PS if need be to eliminate resizing on upload, but I'm trying to make this as easy as possible for the client.
Q2. XML Title formatting. I have my gallery titles in bold, however it only seems as though I can bold them manually in the svManager form with the escape characters. Not a huge deal, but is there a way to set up a default <b> tag to wrap the title string input?
Q3. Last one... index.php master. If I update the master index.php to match the base of the rest of the site, when I create a new gallery, does it only replace the content contained within <div id = flashcontent>? I have the site styled remotely via css and using php includes for the header and footer. I also do not fully understand the php in the <head> of that master? Can I do without that?
Thanks for you help guys. I really like the product, and this is really close to being a successful implementation.
