Hello,

You don't know how to display it in frontend view ?

you edit the "item layout" of e.g. default template and drag and drop the gallery field into a template position

Go to FLEXIcontent/Templates
and then click on the "item layout" of "default" template and you will see that i added your image gallery to a template position (at the right) now any image that you add to it in the item form will be displayed when viewing the article in the frontend

Hello,

also FLEXIcontent v2.0.3 RC (will be available tomorrow), adds 3 more powerful JS Galleries to our image/gallery field

another user posting here about your site "mikeg1" can make use of it and configure it, please leave this to him

Regards

The front end edit does not work for us. try my Roberts Lorum article http://72.249.49.227/f1-racing

Log in with the front end and try to add a gallery or edit the text. All that will show up is a blank screen where the text should be.

another hiccup

there are two articles that are being displayed but not listed in the Article Manager, when you try to access them you get this error message, "Content is no longer available (reason: unpublished)
Content access allowed because you can edit or publish/unpublish this content"

Articles are
http://72.249.49.227/f1-racing/item/898 ... rt-v8-deal

http://72.249.49.227/f1-racing/item/898 ... into-night

how do we delete these articles?

Thanks

Hello

This is not an error message ... it is what it says ... just that what the message says

-- the items are in unpublished state but you can see them and e.g. alter them or publish them etc

- to delete them in items manager you set them to "trash state" and then switch to "Trash View" you select them again and click "delete"

Hi, thx for the help with this. This feature is exactly what we need. I see where you added the gallery field to the item creation. I am able to load just one image to the gallery. Are there settings for this? We'd like to add multiple images and control the size of the thumbs.
I looked in the TYPE-Gallery, but didn't see the settings.
Also, can we add images from our server and where are the images stored?
THx again

Hello visit
- Components/FLEXIcontent/Fields
- edit the field "gallery" (it is of type image/gallery)
- the parameter to allow multiple-value is near the top, then there are parameter to select thumbnail size, gallery used to present field in frontend etc, but it is better to

about the path "default" path is
joomla_folder/images/stories/flexicontent
(do not change this after you start loading images, e.g. now that you have added images only for testing, you can change it)
(also you need the mode of the field to be in "folder" mode and not in DB-mode, so do not change this parameter)

since the field is in folder mode , it will create one folder per content:
joomla_folder/images/stories/flexicontent/item_id_field_id/

To configure the field please read popup descriptions, but you do really need to change anything , just select the thumbnail size (small, large)
