I am using sigplus to show images, but I cannot se what Template Parameter I can use to show the image caption on each image?

The content type field is "Image Gallery" and I have set both "Show Alt tag field" and "Show Title tag field" to yes. The user can enter a title and an alt tag for each image - but I can choose neither one in my template parameter?

How do I set the value of "Show Alt tag field" or "Show Title tag field" in my template as parameter?

If you want a different title per image (and have user(s) change it via F2C) you need to code as the 3rd party Joomla plugin options don't allow for this level of dynamic.

PS The code you use is based on the Joomla template framework. Boostrap/UIkit etc.. I am sure you can find examples of the html (and possibly include a JS file) and copy/paste. There might also be pure CSS solutions.

Is it at all possible to to make use of either "Show Alt tag field" or "Show Title tag field" of a Image Gallery content type field in a template?

Hi Ellen,

Please provide information on how Sigplus adds title or alt. Add your own template code so we can understand what you are doing.

In the F2C Gallery field settings you can set to display title and alt for each image.

Hi Patrick,

Sigplus uses "caption_title"


{ldelim}gallery border="1px solid #ddd" rows=1 cols=1 alignment="left" rotator_links=0 rotator_trigger="click" rotator_step="single" rotator_alignment="c" caption_title="test" mobile="responsive"{rdelim}stories/{$GALLERY_PATH_RELATIVE}{ldelim}/gallery{rdelim}


This outputs "test" as caption on each image - but I would like to set this dynamically with a template parameter.

Yes, I can set Image Gallery field to display title and alt on the submissionform, but I would also like to display these afterwards again through a template.

How do I fetch these values / what template parameter to use?

Hi Ellen,

A gallery is an ARRAY, ie multiple images with multiple title/alt etc.

The SIGplus seems to only allow for ONE title for ALL the gallery.
If you want to template that add a F2C text field "gallery title" and set the output in your template code.

As per documentation and example:
https://documentation.form2content.com/f2c-field-types/image-gallery-field
https://gist.github.com/Form2Content/cc31050a6c370dc2cfbe

You can also get each individual image/title/alt using the ARRAY code and build any type of gallery but is more advanced. This of course does not work with your Sigplus as it just links to a FOLDER with images....

Hope this answers your question.

Patrick

Thank you for your answer. I think I understand now.

I cannot use sigplus to do what I want, instead I have to code like your examples show.
