WordPress Coppermine Widget
My WordPress Coppermine plug-in is a widget that shows a number of thumbnails from a Coppermine web gallery in the sidebar of a WordPress blog. Moving the mouse over a thumbnail will display a pop-up of a larger version of the image together with the title and description from the gallery. The pop up will hide a short time after moving the mouse out of the image.
The WordPress plug-in supplies a widget that will display a configurable number of images, in a configurable grid, selected in a configurable way, from a Coppermine Gallery. When the pointer is placed over an image a larger version of the image will be displayed in a pop-up together with any title and description.
The plug-in supplies a settings page which allows the user to enter the Coppermine database details. The widget is a fully compliant WordPress widget and can be configured using a form on the widget’s appearance page.
On the appearance form you can choose to select how many images to display and the shape of grid in which to didsplay them. You can choose whether to select random, or the latest images, from either all of the images or a specific album. You can also enter the text to display as the widget title.
The plug-in is available from the WordPress site at:
It is intended to add tag support to the plug-in to extend the integration to the inclusion of images in posts and pages. These images will, optionally, also support the pop-up which could either show a larger version of the image or just any title and caption associated with the image. It is also proposed to add support for multiple galleries.
