Hello fellow nerds!
I’ve been using Textpattern for my client sites where they want a portfolio consisting of a small gallery of images for each of their projects. I also wanted to do something different than an image pop-up, which requires some maintenance and can be difficult to train clients on if they aren’t as geeky as I.
If you are interested in the code, you’ll have to first download and install the original plug-in on your Textpattern install. Then edit it and copy/paste the code in this text file. I haven’t heard back from the plug-in author, so if he doesn’t like what I’ve done, I’ll pull down the file.
Hope this helps somebody. I wish I knew PHP better, but getting this to work was pretty much like the scene from Galaxy Quest where the nerd (the person playing the Mac in the most recent Apple ads) realizes that fiction has become reality and freaks out.
