In this post I describe how to create a gallery with random order of images using PHP code in the HTML object.

>> https://helpcenter.websitex5.com/en/post/263812 (German, translate with Google)

Alternatively, KolAsim's code could be used, but then the objects "Masonry" or "Justified Gallery" would have to be used and a link to the page with these objects would have to be posted.

Object "Masonry" (20 Credits) or "Justified Gallery" (20 Credits) in the marketplace, see

>> https://market.websitex5.com/de/objekte/gallery_and_slideshow (Page 1 and 2)

(It > En)  ... Daniel's suggestion is very good...
... unfortunately I don't have the program at the moment, and in order to evaluate I can do it if you post the LINK of an example of a gallery published online...
... depending on the type and the cases it is not always possible to shuffle the images of the program's galleries...
... but if you post the LINK I can make an evaluation...
... a while ago I created a code to shuffle the portfolio object cards...

You could use 3. part software for that.

I use the free LuxAlbum. It can be set up with various parameters.

Example here: https://bramminginfo.dk/hollenderskoven.html

It is set up in an iframe as an un-interruptable slideshow. It starts with a random image each time it is started/re-started.

Images can have text (image caption) and also long texts and if geo-tagged, a button for GoogleMap is shown in manual slideshow.

If you take a look at this album: https://bramminginfo.dk/udstillingsalbum/index.php

Then you will see that the sub-album "Den Smukke Stationsby" has images that has text(I), and that some of the images is geo-tagged (M).

It is possible to "jump" directly to an album-folder like: https://bramminginfo.dk/udstillingsalbum/?a=album_20151118/mont2000/tidslinie

But then the breadcrumb navigation sets the "home" to that folder.

In the last example the images has image-caption, most of them have (I)nfo texts and some hre geo-tagged.

The text for the album and the text (not the caption) for the images can have html elements in the text, which make it possible to have links, images and objects in the text.

This: https://bramminginfo.dk/udstillingsalbum/?a=album_20151118/mont2000/tidslinie&s=1-4-999-0

starts a manual slideshow with random image as first image.

This: https://bramminginfo.dk/udstillingsalbum/?a=album_20151118/mont2000/tidslinie&s=1-4-4-0

starts a manual slideshow with image 4 as first image.

This: https://bramminginfo.dk/udstillingsalbum/?a=album_20151118/mont2000/tidslinie&s=2-4-4-0

Starts an un-interruptable slideshow with image 4 as first image.

Hello Daniel,

On your link the showbow code is not documented. I tried by inspecting your URL demo to add the showbox like into your example, but I get a 500 error.

Please what is your exact PHP code to do that by configuring the onclick event viewed into the source ?

onclick ="return x5engine.imShowBox({ media:[{type: 'iframe', url: 'afs-demo/random-gallery/'.$image, width: 640, height: 360, description: 'Description Test 10'}]}, 0, this);"

I tried this one, with no success... foot-in-mouth

Thanks a lot

Axel

@Axel:

I copied the ShowBox code from source and added the PHP variables.

The settings allow the normal user to set the maximum size of the ShowBox window.

The directory of images is given above along with the other image data so that users do not have to make any changes in the code below and can also use images from different directories.

-----

echo "\t" . '<a href="' . $pieces[0] . '"><img src="' . $pieces[0] . '" alt="'. $pieces[2] .'" title="'. $pieces[3] . '" style="width: 23%; margin: 5px" onclick ="return x5engine.imShowBox({ media:[{type: \'iframe\', url: \'' . $pieces[0] . '\', width: 1920, height: 1080, description: \''. $pieces[1] .'\'}]}, 0, this);" /></a>';
}

The random image display is included in the "Gallery" object in the first 3 gallery types, but unfortunately not in the remaining gallery types.

I modified my PHP code slightly so that you only need to enter the path to the images once.

I marked the user input in bold in the PHP code.

Test page >> https://findelinks.de/123shop-hosteurope/galeriesortierung-per-zufall.php

.

----- PHP code ----

<?php
$images = array
(
'image-123.jpg//Description 1//Alt tag 1//Title 1',
'image-234.jpg//Description 2//Alt tag 2//Title 2',
'image-345.jpg//Description 3//Alt tag 3//Title 3',
'image-456.jpg//Description 4//Alt tag 4//Title 4',
);
$path = './path-to-images/';

shuffle($images); // the magic

echo '<div class="image-entry">';

foreach ($images as $image)
{
$image = $path . $image;
$pieces = explode("//", $image);

echo "\t" . '<a href="' . $pieces[0] . '"><img src="' . $pieces[0] . '" alt="'. $pieces[2] .'" title="'. $pieces[3] . '" style="width: 23%; margin: 5px" onclick ="return x5engine.imShowBox({ media:[{type: \'iframe\', url: \'' . $pieces[0] . '\', width: 1920, height: 1080, description: \''. $pieces[1] .'\'}]}, 0, this);" /></a>';
}

echo '</div>';
?>

One question How can you have the showbox background in white ?

Into the echo line for the showbox, I tried background-color:red or color:red but 

Mine is black 

And the description is not really readable .

Thanks
