This page demonstrates the use of WPPA+ to implement a portfolio. You can use it to show products, introduce people or anything else.
Here we use a parent album that has only sub-albums as its content. The parent album is album #45, its name doesn’t matter – in this example it is ‘PortFolio’ – and its parent is set to — separate —. This makes sure this album does not show up in the ‘Generic Photo album’ display.
The WPPA+ invocation looks like this:
%%wppa%% %%album=45%% %%size=450%%
Normally you would see a breadcrumb navigation bar – as its checkbox is checked in this site – but i removed it with the following scriptline:
The sub-albums (named Opus 16, Opus 20 and Opus 25) all have only one photo in them. As long as this number is less than or equal to the Photo Albums -> Settings -> Photocount treshold value, you will NOT see a ‘Vieuw .. photos’ link or a ‘Slideshow’ link, but you will have an album cover photo.
The albums have set their Parent album to ‘PortFolio’ and their Link to a normal WP page, in this example also named Opus 16, Opus 20 and Opus 25, but you may decide to name the pages different from the albums.
If you want text between the ‘album covers’ you can insert them one by one like the following:
%%wppa%% %%cover=49%% %%size=450%%
Note that we use cover= as opposed to album= because it is a single album whereof we want to see the cover.
Its parent is set to —separate—, and the Link to a page called Opus 31.
Click on ‘Opus 16′ or its coverphoto to learn more.
