Photo description in wiki page?

posts: 57 United States

I have a pretty tracker that I display images in. There are descriptions attached to the images from when I uploaded them. Is it possible to have these descriptions displayed below the image like a caption?

Sure, just use the DESC parameter:

Your description here.
Your description here.


See the docs for details.

That worked, thanks! I went to the field properties in the tracker and modified my code from...
thumb=box&max=800

to this

thumb=box&max=800&desc=desc

Would it be possible to also show the date uploaded below an image?

Yes, but there's no built-in syntax for this. You could use the LIST plugin. Something like this:

Sample to show last modification date of a file ID #1
{LIST()}
  {pagination max="1"}
  {filter field="object_id" content="1"}
  {filter type="file"}
  {OUTPUT()}
    {display name="modification_date"}
  {OUTPUT}
{LIST}


For the object_id, simply pass the parameter you're using in your pretty tracker that contains the ID of the file that your displaying, instead of content="1".


See the docs for full details on the the List plugin.

Thanks for your help! I will have to experiment with this to get a full understanding.


If you want to take a look, this is the template page.
http://www.wikigrave.com/tiki-index.php?page=Memorial-TPL

The tracker ID is 5, the photographs field ID is 92.

This is an example of the output page.

I'm not 100% clear on your setup, but unless you're allowing images to be uploaded separately, you can simply use the tracker item's date as the image date, right? If so, simply use the lastmodif for the tracker item your displaying.

See "Pre-defined Variables in the Pretty Tracker docs.

I added in this line and it does work for that entire field but I would rather have a date/time shown for each individual upload.
{$f_lastmodif|tiki_short_date|tiki_short_datetime}

It depends how you have your tracker set... If you're using a single field for multiple photos, then yes you're only going to get a single date using this.

My original suggestion (with the LIST plugin) may work better for you, since it uses the individual ID for each photo from the gallery, not the tracker item itself.

Makes sense, I'm using a single field for multiple photos.


I'm not sure if the LIST plugin will work for my configuration.
