Implements a simple image gallery allowing to display picture teaser text on hovering.



Compatible Joomla 3.0

LicenceGPL V2.0


J1.5 compatible   compat_25 Compatible Joomla 3.0 GPL - Free

The module is based on the Jquery script Zoom-info described in the Addy Osmani tutorial (www.addyosmani.com) and implements a fixed (non responsive) simple image gallery allowing to display picture teaser text on hovering.

It supports multiple uses on the same page by defining a unique id for each module .

Module allows to define following settings:

* images folder
* gallery parameters: width, height and background color

* box parameters: title and teaser css
* image parameters: width, height, margin, title text, teaser text, title color and teaser text color, url link and target

* max 20 images.


Implementation notes:

- best result is obtained when the image physical size is identical to the gallery image box sizes

- the physical image must have a height in px >= image gallery height

How to define url links in caption text

1) do not define external url for the picture

2) define your image caption text as follows (exemple of picture 3 in above demo)


Note: do not define br tags if the "New line to br tag" parameter is enabled. Each line return in the parameter box will generate a br tag.
