Current state of this document
This is a draft which must be full of error because I am f*?#!ng tired. Please correct me...
I removed the draft state. Because i think the doc now says everything it should.
I choose to not use the OpenOffice document as documentation because I am often pissed by the structure (or the lack of) of extension-documentation which uses the template. I will put a simple link into that and wait for people who explain to me why going this way is bad :)
I just realized that there are templates to be used in ext manuals in this wiki. I will check that out.
Galleriffic by Trent Foley wrapped into a Typo3-Extension
This extension adds jquery galleriffic as a content element to typo3.
All credits regarding jquery.galleriffic.js itself got to Trent Foley (http://trentacular.com/2009/02/galleriffic-1-0/, http://www.twospy.com/galleriffic/index.html)! My work is the Typo3-Extension which makes Galleriffic easily useable within Typo3.
After MANY years of making websites with typo3 this is my first major contribution to the community. I am ashamed. ;-)
- Search the TER for jvb_galleriffic and install it
- Include the static template jvb_galleriffic into your template. Since version 0.0.2 there is galleriy (another nice jquery gallery: http://devkick.com/lab/galleria/ ) aswell.
- If you dont include jquery in any other way got to constant editor/jvb_galleriffic and switch on "jvb.galleriffic.includeJQuery" and "jvb.galleriffic.wrapInDocumentReadyFunction"
- Put lib.jvb.galleriffic.include1 and lib.jvb.galleriffic.include2 into an appropriate position in your page.headerData (Example: page.headerData.123 < lib.jvb.galleriffic.include2) and let these constants switched of. Please excuse this small usability fault. I am waiting for issue #19693 on forge.typo3.org (https://forge.typo3.org/issues/19693) to be resolved and will add the appropriate code to my ext if this is ready. Will it be resolved in Typo3 4.3?
- Tune the other params to your needs (see http://www.twospy.com/galleriffic/index.html)
- Go to the page where you want your cool gallery and add a new content element. If you use the newContentElementWizard you will find galleriffic right on top with text, images etc.,
- Add pics, alt-text, caption, title as you are used to. Only the longDescUrl field is used in another way then in normal images: It holds the text which is shown below the title of the image in galleriffic. I was to lazy to add another field to tt_content and thought its cool to not bloat it any further as well
- save and open the frontend
- There it is...
I think I will add more static templates which include alternative jquery gallery scripts like galleria
- I think it would be better if galleriffic and galleria where two seperate extensions. What do you think?
- Code tuning.
- Include prettier css presets.
The original version of jquery.galleriffic.js does not work with <base>-tag set, which mandatory when realURL or coolURI is used. So use my patched version included in this ext . I mostly implemented the things described by Schwarzesocke at contenido.org forums plus some further things.

0.0.2 - First working version. At leas I hope so. It works in my local installation. 0.0.1 - The first Uploaded version. This was screwed up.
If something does not work or my english is bad or you have any other suggestions please contact me at jo-the-symbol-you-would-normally-expect-here-mediaparadise.net For updates follow me on twitter (http://www.twitter.com/agrotron) I actually do this work for a new magazine called KLIMA-MAGAZIN (http://www.klima-magazin.de/) which delivers news and stories around all climate-change related things and cool stuff the scientists invent to make our beeing less destructive to our world and so on...
