Hi, is possible to use old <gallery> like in Wikipedia? Others i will have to add bordersize=none and other parameters to all our galleries. --Karkos 12:19, September 19, 2010 (UTC)

Slideshow "Stop" Option? Edit

Is there some sort of "stop" option on the slideshow? This is a feature that would be nice as it is used on our main page and it would be nice for people to click to move to the next images in the slideshow rather than have them auto-load. Also, would it be possible to have the slideshow cropped to fit the picture rather than be fixed width/height? --M1shawhan 03:30, September 30, 2010 (UTC)

Yes. Clicking Next or Prev stops the automatic progression. -User452 22:20, April 24, 2011 (UTC)

Slider Gallery Edit

The Avatar Wiki uses a unique gallery slider on their front page. Their code is similar to how a ordinary slider would be, but it is right on their main page in gallery tags. More specifically, gallery type="slider" . I've been trying to replicate the same thing on another wiki, but it only shows up as a large blank space. Does anybody know how I can replicate this? It looks a lot better than the traditional slider and it'll be easier to edit without waiting a full day for the slider to update every time. Neocarleen β€’ Talk 10:56, December 8, 2010 (UTC)

I'm trying to figure this out too, the best I got is this post here Forum:Help_with_a_sliding_gallery

Slider GalleryEdit

At my home page there is a slider with 4 pics, but in 3 pics it just cuts a 1/4 of the photo. I wanted to know if there is something I can put between "<>" that can solve this? and If not what is the dimension of the cutted part? El Krickettalk 17:42, October 2, 2011 (UTC)

Comparing sliders, slideshows, and galleries Edit

See Community: Forum: Gallery Slider Question.

Then see Portal:User:Timeshifter/Sandbox 18. It illustrates what is discussed in the forum. It has examples of a slideshow, a gallery, and a gallery in a show-hide box. --Timeshifter 14:13, April 10, 2012 (UTC)

Stop Automatic Scroll Edit

Is there optional wikitext to prevent the automatic scrolling of Slideshows and Sliders? OGRastamon (talk) 12:53, November 10, 2012 (UTC)

I'm getting the sense that this site is completely useless when it comes to getting questions answered.--OGRastamon (talk) 13:39, November 26, 2012 (UTC)

I'd like to change placeholders background color Edit

Is there a way to do it? --Slider2k (talk) 07:45, April 10, 2013 (UTC)

Slideshow toolbarEdit

Hi all,

We know how to hide the "add" button but I'd like to hide the slideshow toolbar, on the left below side (the double-frame for fullscreen and the image counter). Is it possible ? The HTML code is:

<img class="wikia-slideshow-popout lightbox"   <--- for the fullscreen mode
<span class="wikia-slideshow-toolbar-counter"   <--- for the image counter

"Left" orientationEdit

Orientation "left" for slider type gallery doesn't work. Luki1412 (talk) 18:49, April 22, 2014 (UTC)

Option issuesEdit

I've noticed some of the options fail to work if you put them in quotation marks. It's best to leave all quotation marks off. Speaking of options... Why do the examples use navigation="true", yet navigation is not even listed under Wiki Options? Horseshoe Crab (talk) 02:39, February 9, 2015 (UTC)

That's a good point, you should remove navigation="true" from the examples. -452 (talk) 02:53, February 9, 2015 (UTC)
What options don't work with quotation marks? 'navigation' is an administrative tag, mostly - it's not something users really need to worry about. Kirkburn  talk  contr  @fandom  16:06, February 9, 2015 (UTC)
I'm an admin and I have no idea what navigation=true does. I came here specifically to find out. I will be removing it where it has cropped up on my wiki. --Jade Raventalk 08:43, June 18, 2016 (UTC)
navigation=true came about with the New Image Galleries. DEmersonJMFM 20:07, April 8, 2017 (UTC)

Template issuesEdit

Is there a way to add pictures to a template that uses gallery?

I'm trying to get something like the following to work (Template):


The only way I can seem to get it to work is if I define image1 as something like:

image1 = 

Which defeats the point of a template.

Thanks in advance! Chobbles (talk) 15:54, May 20, 2015 (UTC)

I'm not aware of a particular reason the first version you mention wouldn't work - but I can confirm seeing this kind of issue in testing. Unfortunately, I'm not sure of a way around it. Do you have an example of a situation where you're wanting to do this? Kirkburn  talk  contr  @fandom  15:20, May 22, 2015 (UTC)
I am: the gallery tag is parsed before the template parameters. To use template parameters to build a gallery, you have to use the tag parser function.
I use
{{#tag:gallery| {{{1}}} }}
But this should work too:
-452 15:37, May 22, 2015 (UTC)
Nice work, 452! I can confirm that using that method solves the issue :) Kirkburn  talk  contr  @fandom  15:39, May 22, 2015 (UTC)

Slideshow in a template help Edit

I'm just starting to use templates and I was wondering if there was a way to add pictures to a template that uses a slideshow?

I'm trying to achieve something likes this (Template):

<gallery type="slideshow">

However this does not allow me to add an image when the template is placed on a page, as the slideshow does not appear.

Thanks! --Kijiro (talk) 21:12, August 24, 2015 (UTC)

I was having the same problem, so I might as well answer with the solution...
To expand upon what was mentioned by 452, any wiki-text xml tag can be replaced with:
This was taken from MediaWiki Help - Magic Words
So, your template would be written as:
{{#tag: gallery|

Gallery margins? Edit

Is there any way to reduce the margins around a gallery? I'm trying to make a navbox with a gallery in it, and the top and bottom margins are huge while the left and right ones are tiny.

Automatic Galleries in Infoboxes Edit

Automatic Galleries in Infoboxes Edit

I am wondering how to have a gallery in infobox (the one that acts like a tabber), by having it have multiple variables that is sources from. Like you input image1,Β image2, and image3, and then it automatically creates a gallery that has image1 as the first image, image2 as the second image, and image3 as the third image. Then you have caption1, caption2, and caption3 as the Captions (that act like the tabs in a tabber), but you don't have to manually input the gallery in the page, but instead input the source values?

Slideshow Format: Break Text Edit

Slideshow Format: Break Text Edit

So I've been trying to get the text not to wrap around my slideshow, with little to no success. Currently, we have the following to force a break text:

<gallery type="slideshow" widths="200" position="left"> Image.jpg Image2.jpg BlahBlahBlah.jpg </gallery> <br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

Is there a way to make it so we can use it without using so many line breaks? - Shadow Lucario (talk) 19:14, December 10, 2018 (UTC)

<h2> style tags and Sliders Edit

Hello! In my wiki Main Page, which is mostly composed by separate <h2> boxes, sliders seem to work badly, as the box doesn’t expand to contain the full slider. Is there a way to force boxes to house the slider?
