Using tinyZenpage Oct 02, 2011 / Updated: May 18, 2013
This is a plugin to the TinyMCE plugin and was introduced with the Zenpage CMS plugin. It provides access to your Zenphoto albums and images as well as Zenpage pages, news articles and news categories to easily include them into your pages and articles. Obviously inspired by ZenphotoPress by Alessandro "Simbul" Morandi.
You can include into your pages or articles:
- Direct links to pages, news articles and news categories with the title as link text
- Links and linked images to your albums and images
For images and albums you have also these options:
- Insert thumbnails and sized images either in Zenphoto's default sizes or custom sizes (cropped and uncropped)
- Insert images either linked or not linked
- Insert text links either using the titles, custom text and even custom urls
- Text wrap around the images
You will see a button for it on the TinyMCE tool bar on your Zenpage page or news article edit page. Position the cursoe where you want to insert and click the icon.
After that you get a start page with detailed instructions on how to use it. This tutorial will therefore just give you a visual impression on how tinyZenpage works.
You can now choose between Zenpage items (pages, news, news categories) or gallery items (albums, images).
If you for example choose Zenpage pages you get a list. Clicking it would include the title/link to that item.
If you choose an album you get a thumbnail list of its images...
...or just the album thumbnail if the album itself does not contain images directly.
You can now zoom the to see more details. It opens in a Colorbox window.
If you click on the thumb itself it will be inserted according to the settings you made on the left (image inserting examples given).
Using a specific storage album for article or page images
If you don't want your embeded images from the page or article to appear in the normal gallery just setup an specific unpublished album for this purpose and only publish the images within.
