Adding jQuery Photo Gallery with Description Effect



This image doesn't have any alt text

Today I’ll be featuring another cool widget that you can integrate within your Blogger site, which is a beautiful jQuery photo gallery with description effect from Bloggertrix. Adding it isn't difficult, and you may also add some to your selected image, even during the animation.

Steps:


  • Go to Blogger Dashboard.



  • Click on the drop down menu > Layout



  • Click Add Gadget > HTML/Javascript



  • Copy and paste this code provided below:


<script type="text/javascript" src="http://bloggertrixcode.googlecode.com/files/jquery-1.3.1.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://bloggertrixcode.googlecode.com/files/jquery.scrollTo.js"></script>
<script>
$(document).ready(function()

//Speed of the slideshow
var speed = 5000;

//You have to specify width and height in #slider CSS properties
//After that, the following script will set the width and height accordingly
$('#mask-gallery, #gallery li').width($('#slider').width());
$('#gallery').width($('#slider').width() * $('#gallery li').length);
$('#mask-gallery, #gallery li, #mask-excerpt, #excerpt li').height($('#slider').height());

//Assign a timer, so it will run periodically
var run = setInterval('newsscoller(0)', speed);

$('#gallery li:first, #excerpt li:first').addClass('selected');

//Pause the slidershow with clearInterval
$('#btn-pause').click(function ()
clearInterval(run);
return false;
);

//Continue the slideshow with setInterval
$('#btn-play').click(function ()
run = setInterval('newsscoller(0)', speed);
return false;
);

//Next Slide by calling the function
$('#btn-next').click(function ()
newsscoller(0);
return false;
);

//Previous slide by passing prev=1
$('#btn-prev').click(function ()
newsscoller(1);
return false;
);

//Mouse over, pause it, on mouse out, resume the slider show
$('#slider').hover(

function()
clearInterval(run);
,
function()
run = setInterval('newsscoller(0)', speed); ););

function newsscoller(prev)

//Get the current selected item (with selected class), if none was found, get the first item
var current_image = $('#gallery li.selected').length ? $('#gallery li.selected') : $('#gallery li:first');
var current_excerpt = $('#excerpt li.selected').length ? $('#excerpt li.selected') : $('#excerpt li:first');

//if prev is set to 1 (previous item)
if (prev)

//Get previous sibling
var next_image = (current_image.prev().length) ? current_image.prev() : $('#gallery li:last');
var next_excerpt = (current_excerpt.prev().length) ? current_excerpt.prev() : $('#excerpt li:last');

//if prev is set to 0 (next item)
else

//Get next sibling
var next_image = (current_image.next().length) ? current_image.next() : $('#gallery li:first');
var next_excerpt = (current_excerpt.next().length) ? current_excerpt.next() : $('#excerpt li:first');


//clear the selected class
$('#excerpt li, #gallery li').removeClass('selected');

//reassign the selected class to current items
next_image.addClass('selected');
next_excerpt.addClass('selected');

//Scroll the items
$('#mask-gallery').scrollTo(next_image, 800); 
$('#mask-excerpt').scrollTo(next_excerpt, 800);

  • Change photos of your choosing by changing the picture URL.



  • You can change the picture texts by changing the bolded texts (this part of the code above):


<div id="mask-excerpt">
<ul id="excerpt">
<li>Cras dictum. Maecenas ut turpis. In vitae erat ac orci dignissim eleifend.</li>
<li>Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus et malesuada fames ac turpis egestas.</li>
<li>Nunc quis justo. Sed vel ipsum in purus tincidunt pharetra.</li>
<li>tristique senectus et netus et malesuada fames ac turpis egestas.</li>
<li>Nunc quis justo. Sed vel ipsum in purus tincidunt pharetra.</li> </ul>
</div>
