TOPIC: Full Article Image feature

Full Article Image feature 2 years 2 months ago #39010

Could you direct me to some instructions on how to use the article images and links in Joomla 2.5? It's obvious how to declare them within an article, but I've yet to see how to get the images to display. Do I need to code for them through an alternative layout?

Have you installed JCE Editor or is it already preinstalled with Joomla 2.5?
Warm Regards,

Yes, I installed it in 2.5. I'm a JCE subscriber and use their premium tools for uploading/linking. But my quesiton is not about how to add an image to an article. Rather, it is about the new feature in 2.5 called "Full Article Image."

The feature follows the similar pattern as found in K2: Each article has a place for me to select an image that is associated with the article, and then the article can be displayed so that the image for it is always inserted a consistent way (such as floated left or right). Likewise, one can declare an image for the intro section and can declare up to three links - all per article.

I know how to declare such an image for any given article, but I'm not finding the way to make it display. It's got to be simple once known, and I must be overlooking it.

Hi Randy,

We don't have a tutorial on that yet, but we could create one if you'd like. However part of our tutorial (step 11) on "25 Improvements in Joomla 2.5" talks about it:
www.ostraining.com/blog/joomla/joomla25/

If you're still not able to getting to show up in the frontend, then make sure that you don't have any template overrides for Joomla 1.7 as those would prevent the 2.5 features from showing up on the frontend since the code isn't in there to be outputted.

Kind regards,
Nick

Nick,

Thanks for suggesting I check the override. I'm using a Rockettheme template from a few months ago, and I see it is overriding the article's view. I'll post to their forum to let them know.

I knew there had to be a simple explanation.

Hello again,

I know this thread is old, but I'm glad it's still here.

I'm using a RT template too, and was having trouble getting the article images to float properly using the settings in the article parameters. Just knowing that it might be Gantry causing the problem was a step in the right direction.

My solution was to add the following to my custom css file (This was to align the image to the left.):
.img-intro-left{
float: left !important;
margin-right: 15px;
}
Just invert the 'left' and 'right's' to float it to the right.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction,
Will
