2J Gallery and Flexi

7 years 3 months ago #38722 by emanuelusa
Need some URGENT help here please.

The issue we are encountering is with inserting galleries into Flexicontent articles.
I setup 2 test servers. One with flexicontent installed and another with just a standard joomla install (no flexicontent)

Our goal is to insert galleries into our articles using a tag.
This is an image of the article on the website that does not have flexicontent installed.
This is the site that does not have flexicontent. I just click the button to insert the tag and the gallery shows inside the article.
Front view.

Now on the site with flexicontent I perform the same insert, but the gallery does not appear. Only the tag displays.


Thank you again for your help with this. If it will not be possible for us to insert galleries this way can you suggest another method or component that will integrate well with flexicontent?

Hello,

the tag is probably replaced via a content plugin,

go and edit the FLEXIcontent field description or textarea field or other field

1. enable parameter for content plugin triggering
in item view (or in category view too)

2. also there is a parameter to select which content plugins will be triggered, if you do not know the name of the plugin then select none and all plugins will be triggered

Hi again, well after much trial and effort and finally asking the developers of 2J Gallery it appears that based on their response that 2J will not work with Flexi due to Flexi not parsing their tags, here is a quote from their help desk, "it's happening bec. flexicontent do not parse our tags. I'm afraid that we're not able to change it." Soooooo with that in mind, can you please recommend a gallery manager that will work with Flexi? Need something that will work pretty much OOTB at this point we have a site that needs to go live by Thursday. Thank you much for your help!

Hello,

most likely the 2J gallery has an if statement that prevents their code for running in flexicontent views !

FLEXIcontent v2.0.2 is compatible 99% of content plugins using the onContentPrepare event.

-- if tag of 2J Gallery is replaced by a content plugin that uses the onContentPrepare then it should work !

IF you have your development site online
then you can send me a PM with admin login and also provide a FLEXIcontent item id , and example e.g. add via JCE editor button the 2J gallery item nnn and view in frontend,

then i will test this today, usually i can check such things quickly (i cannot test locally 2J Gallery is not free to download, i could not spent 3000 euros to buy 100 commercial extensions to test them with FC anyway ...)

Excellent support thank you!

I will do as you request, unfortunately the Article Manager is now broke while trying the 2J Gallery fix. I will send you login so you can see maybe you see why it crashed. I can pay you if need be to get this resolved.

Thanks,
Robert

Hello

-- about article manager error,
it was because category "Autosport" category had its ASSET record corrupted (=permissions information)
... it is ok now


-- as i said you need to do this:

-- edit FLEXIcontent "description" field and enable the parameter "trigger content plugins"

... and it is working now

NOTE: also to you have a 100% Joomla Default behavior and trigger ALL content/system plugins , you can do that by selecting NO specific plugin in list

see the Private Message that i sent you, for an example!

Please:
1. copy my PM message and sent it to the 2J gallery people
2. Check the last 5 articles you created, i might have change their category

Regards

Hi there, we went to the article manager and now we dont see the flexicontent article manager at all, and only see the default article manager. We liked the Flexi Manager, can we get it back? :?:

Also with what you did our Disqus comments are now working as well...Our concern is that if we put the flexi article manager back up that it will break the discus extension as well... Can you help with that?

Hello,

FLEXIcontent article manager is always accessible via:

Components/FLEXicontent and then clicking "items"

Just to avoid confusion,
usually the Joomla "Article Manager" is automatically redirected to FLEXIcontent article manager

I have disable the redirection for the "Super Users" for the purpose of testing.

NOTE: if you save an item in Joomla Article manager then the values FLEXIcontent fields are maintained
but FLEXIcontent-specific parameters are cleared (usually you never customize these parameters anyway because you do not want to override content Type parameters)

-- I have re-enabled the automatic redirection for super users too

Also FLEXIcontent image-gallery field (set in folder mode) is very good at handling galleries and is integrated into the item form, i think it is best choice for creating image galleries inside your content items

Regards
