Feedback is appreciated. You may find some inelegant code since I’m no web developer but a C and assembler guy.

– Includes the bugfix by Christophe Beyls.
– trailing slash bug fixed, e.g. “www.mydomain/gallery/” works
– image sorting by trailing numbers didn´t work properly

I like this it’s nice and simple – thank you. Might I suggest that you remove repeating id’s so the html will validate and also the you mark the active link with an active class so it can be styled

Cheers, Lee
Could it be that this script requires PHP 5?
it doesn’t work :-/ i got some tag errors …
The issues should have been closed with version 0.2.
I´ve no inclination to support PHP4, though.
Got the text: No images found.

Got a pic in the direction:

called 01A-test.jpg

Can someone help me, please?
Posted a fix for the bug abovementioned, check it out on the Textpattern forum. Please hurry because the code will be available for 1 month only:

Finally here´s the update to 0.3, thanks Christophe. Couldn´t make it sooner since I was in hospital most of the time. I didn´t test it thoroughly, but it seems to work fine.

Have fun!

I want my website editors to define the directory for the images. Naturally I want to use a custom field for it, but it’s not really working.

I have this in my form template:


The custom field has the value of a directory with correct named images in.

What’s wrong? Any one?

the download site is down


does anyone have this plugin because the site is currently down
