    [Image Gallery Listing View] [with Addison Berry]
  • 0:08
    It's pretty cool that we have image galleries on the site now.
  • 0:11
    But they kinda look a little weird.
  • 0:13
    It's a list of images. It works okay.
  • 0:16
    But it would be really nice if we could make that a little snazzier.
  • 0:20
    So what we're gonna be doing in this lesson
  • 0:22
    is looking at some additional modules that will help us pull it together
  • 0:26
    and really make it feel like a gallery.
  • 0:28
    So we're gonna start off with looking at gallery formatter.
  • 0:32
    That's gonna take that whole list of all those images and put them together

Use Colorbox and Gallery Formatter


With the Gallery content type ready to go, we need work on a better display for the galleries so that they aren't just a big list of images. In this lesson, we're going to polish our galleries by adding several contributed modules that let us manipulate the display of our images in interesting ways. Specifically we will be adding Gallery Formatter and Colorbox modules to give us a nice interface for viewing the gallery images. Colorbox is dependent on the Libraries module, and we'll need to use an external javascript library, called Colorbox, to get the effect we want. We'll explain how to work with external libraries and make things are configured properly on our site.
