Asset Gallery v1.2.6

By Byrne Reese
Posted September 11, 2012.

Details

Asset Gallery lets you easily create collections for your entries, such as photo galleries. Combining MT4's built-in asset manager with powerful custom fields capabilities, you simply upload your files using the familiar Movable Type interface and the plugin does the rest, even offering a fancy carousel view of your images right within the MT interface. Asset Gallery supports non-photo uploads, too, supporting display of video files, Word documents, PDFs or anything else on any page on your site.

To display the assets on your blog, Asset Gallery gives you a new custom template tag with the -Assets block/container tag (within which you can use any MTAsset tag).

For example, if you had created a custom field with a custom tag of MTEntryPhotoGallery, you could use the following code to display the images in your gallery:

<mt:EntryPhotoGalleryAssets>
    <a href="<mt:AssetURL>" title="<mt:AssetLabel>"><img src="<mt:AssetThumbnailURL>" /></a>
</mt:EntryPhotoGalleryAssets>

Requirements

Custom Fields (included with the Professional Pack)

Compatibility

Movable Type versions: 4.3

License

GPL

This looks brilliant, however I get the following error as soon as this plugin is intalled:

“Publish error in template ‘error.tmpl’: Unknown tag found: setvarblock”

Any ideas?

(running 4.2rc3)

I had the same exact error when I first installed it, but then I realized that I had actually put the tags in the template before I installed it and that seemed to be causing the error. Now that I removed them, then installed it doesn’t through the error: “Publish error in template ‘error.tmpl’: Unknown tag found: setvarblock” anymore. Since I got it working, managing the invitations for my site rehearsal dinner site has been so much easier.

I am experiencing the exact same problem with the same release version of MT as Richard Benson.

Richard Benson on July 15, 2008, 9:46 a.m. Reply

ok, I have narrowed the actual error generated to /tmpl/cms/error.tmpl (or at least whatever is parsing it) and it can’t handle a single MT tag, not one, hence the useless error message.

Now, has the asset gallery also broken the error reporting, or was the error reporting broken anyway and when Asset Gallery generated an error MT can no longer handle it?

Has anyone got this working? If so on what set up?

If you change line 62 of /plugins/AssetGallery/lib/AssetGallery.pm to:

    &load_customfield_type;

The tagging instructions above look like they are completely off, and in facvt following them will mean nothing will happen to your assets. I called mine “entryphotogallery” in the template tag and the basename. You also HAVE to specify a folder to place the uploaded images.

To get it to display, you do the following:

        <a>" title="">" /></a>

But that doesn’t do thumbnails like it specifies there. I will keep digging until such time as Arvind or someone else involved lets us know what’s going on!

Looks like the sub names were changed.

Interestingly, it breaks my YUI plugin :(

I have an issue with editing already existing entries. The asset gallery appears when writing entries, but it won’t show up when I want to edit existing entries. It won’t even appear on the Display Options drop down list. Any ideas?

I had hoped this was fixed, but I just tried to install this plugin on MT 4.2 and got the following:

Can’t build error template; got error ‘Publish error in template ‘error.tmpl’: Unknown tag found: setvarblock ‘. Giving up. Original error was:

Undefined subroutine &AssetGallery::loadmetafields called

Le sigh.
