Feature Roundup: A new way to browse galleries in articles

25

A quick note about one of the new launched features: the gallery tool in our Magazine. It's now possible to show all photos on one page. Browse through the included sample gallery to see how it works…

Credits: recurving

Clicking “previous photo” and “next photo” (or clicking on the left or right side of the photo) navigates from one photo to the next, clicking “show all photos” expands them and clicking on a photo again will collapse the gallery. Hope you like it!

    @renaishashin and @ripsta: sometimes it takes a while (because of caching)

    I don't know if I like the "roll" transitions, it hurts my eyes ... The expand function is cool thou

    good job indeed, however I see that only one photo is pre-cached, is that true?

    What's up with the big, blue bar of buttons on the photo pages? It kind of takes away from the pictures!!

  18. recurving

    @breakphreak: yes, exactly. say you are on the 1st of 8 photos we pre-cache the 2nd and the 8th, clicking next pre-caches the 3rd, clicking previous would pre-cache the 7th – we don't want to preload all photos right away due to bandwidth…
    @eggzakly: which big blue bar do you mean? the one for the navigation (next, previous, like, …)?

  19. breakphreak

    @recurving: bandwidth consideration is completely understood. however, I usually really really like the pics and really really want to see them all and it is really really hummmm frustrating/annoying to wait till they will appear. This is usually why I see only the first few pics. maybe some adaptive strategy like "the more you see - the more pre-cache you'll get [and vice versa]", kept in the user profile or so? :)

    oh, just seen the "show all photos" option! thanks! just what I need :)

  22. recurving

    @breakphreak: ah, ok – thought you've already seen this – the show all option load everything (for people who are into scrolling – like me)… :)

    @breakphreak: but i am still thinking into the idea of preloading more photos the "more" one is into the gallery…
