Sorcerer's Gallery

Sorcerer's Gallery is a Magic Data enabled gallery and slideshow block. Set a gallery's content and title according to Magic Data expressions. View the gallery with light boxes, sliders, slide shows and more using one of many lightweight block templates. Have a look through the examples for just a few ideas about how you can display Sorcerer's Galleries.

While on the subject of Magic Data, the above list was generated with the expression:

PAGE LIST_ALL_PAGES 20
FILTER_LIST
  PAGE_NAME
  BEGINS_WITHC 'Example'
END_FILTER
APPLY_EACH
PAGE_LINK
END_APPLY_EACH
HTML_UL

Whilst the various templates are easy to adapt with new formats, the real power of Sorcerer's Gallery is in the way files are listed using Magic Data. This brings the full power of Magic Data to selecting filesets, listing files and sorting the display order. Please see the User Guide for more details.

As more developer documentation for concrete5.7 becomes available and time permits, I will be porting more of my addons. I have a lot of addons in the marketplace and it will take a while to update them all to 5.7.

Image galleries, sliders and slide shows that adapt to user and site data.

Sorcerer's Gallery is a Magic Data enabled gallery and slideshow block. Set a gallery's content and title according to Magic Data expressions. View the gallery with light boxes, sliders, slide shows and more using one of many lightweight block templates.

The power of Magic Data provides the ultimate flexibility in setting the files to show. You can do any of:

  • List specific files by name or ID
  • List one or more file sets by name or ID
  • Select or adjust what is shown using page or user attributes
  • Select or adjust what is shown using product attributes (requires Magic Data Commerce)
  • and so much more – just get imaginative with Magic Data

A selection of block templates enable the selected files to be displayed as any of:

  • A thumbnail grid with lightbox/fancybox overlay
  • An image slider
  • A fade in/out slideshow
  • A lazy loaded list of full size files
  • Blocks by AJAX alternatives for any of the above

Templates are structured to be modular and easily modified for custom templates. The included jQuery cycle templates offer a starting point for unlimited possibilities for custom transitions. Template designers can easily set any of the associated jQuery widget options from php without needing to mess with JavaScript. Please see the documentation for details.

This addon requires that Magic Data is already installed. You should also install Magic Data Symbols.
