Stacks Image 223

Enable the option in the Styles Tab

Open the Page Inspector > Styles as you can see on the image.

You can see that after adding your own images to the Photo Album type page you just need to enable the option in the Styles Tab, so that you can have a neat pagination effect in your page albums.

By default the pagination is enabled to show 10 items/photos but this can be easily changed with the code snippet below.

Change the number of pagination items

As you can see on the image on the right in the Javascript Tab, I've pasted the code snippet there.

I've added some code to the Javascript box, it shows us the items that we want to paginate, so if we need to increase or even decrease the value we just need to edit the value to whatever suits your needs best.

Just try it yourself, here is the snippet, that you need to copy/paste in your Photo Album page Javascript Tab.

var photoCount = 20;

As you can see in the reference image, we just need copy and paste the code snippet below in to our Page Inspector > Sidebar Tab.

<div id="myExtraContent1">

<! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- THE SLIDER CONTENT --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- >
<div id="featured">
<img src="%resource(images/banner_1.jpg)%" />
<img src="%resource(images/banner_2.jpg)%" />
<img src="%resource(images/banner_3.jpg)%" data-caption="#htmlCaption" />
<img src="%resource(images/banner_4.jpg)%" />
<img src="%resource(images/banner_5.jpg)%" />
<!-- Captions for Slides -->
<span class="orbit-caption" id="htmlCaption"><strong>I'm A Badass Caption:</strong> I can haz <a href="#">links</a>, <em>style</em> or anything that is valid markup :)</span>


I'm using the sidebar to place that code but you use it wherever you think is more comfortable for you, in the content page.

Very Important: After dropping the snippet into your project, please highlight the code and apply > Ignore Formatting from the Format Menu.

Here's the code snippet:

<div id="social">

<a href="#"><img src="%pathto(images/icons/aquaticus_social/24px/twitter.png)%" alt="Twitter" /></a>
<a href="#"><img src="%pathto(images/icons/aquaticus_social/24px/lastfm.png)%" alt="Last.fm" /></a>

<a href="#"><img src="%pathto(images/icons/aquaticus_social/24px/vimeo.png)%" alt="Vimeo" /></a>

Changing the icons size!

As you can see highlighted the value 24xp, is the default size that will going to be applied to your icons, you can change this by editing that value to something different, like the values below:


Also you need to edit the URL to point to your social network changing the # value, as an example if I want to insert my Twitter URL I just need to change the # value and replace it with my Twitter page, http://twitter.com/weaverthemes

How to replace the default images for your own!
In RapidWeaver, open your website file and view the Themes panel (View > Show Themes)

This step should bring up your Themes panel!

Find the Theme you need to add your images to in this case search Infinity and right click it, this should open a context box where you can see something like "Reveal Contents in Finder"

In the resultant Finder window, place your image(s) into the folder /images/editable_images/ Ensure your images are named the same way as the ones in that folder "banner_1.jpg"..."banner_xx.jpg".

In RapidWeaver, select "Banner 01", "Banner 02", "Banner 03", etc from the "Page Inspector > Styles > Banner Images" Theme Variations set.

Note: You can use this free online image editor to edit your images if you want: http://pixlr.com/editor/
