( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

i've stopped using tables for image galleries altogether. instead, i prefer to just spit out a bunch of divs and float them with CSS. eg, see this gallery. the advantages are that it is simple to generate (you can just use a plain <tmpl_loop>) and if you resize the browser window, they will reflow to fit. this allows the user to take full advantage of a big screen without making users with small screens scroll horizontally. if you still want to limit it to a certain number of columns, you just enclose the whole thing in a div with a fixed width. if you have images with irregular dimensions, you need to force the enclosing divs out to the maximum width and heights to make it look neat.

i used to try to do these with tables and it involved all kinds of annoying code to add in empty entries for the remaining table cells.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
