embed photos?

Previous Entry embed photos? Feb. 21st, 2005 @ 07:50 pm Next Entry
Are there any plans to allow us to embed photos into a page the same way we can embed our journal in a page? Yes, I could just use frames, but then my gallery is going to look *nothing* like my site design. Will there be a javascript to plant my galleries in my page?

Um.... you could just use the 'post to journal' stuff and paste the html into your website...

I can also code it by hand. The point is, if I add more photos to my gallery in LJ, I then also have to go add them to my site. And code it all by hand. And update it by hand. I used to have a site-side journal, too, but updating a livejournal and having it automatically post to my site is much more efficient.

LJ doesn't allow embeding or JavaScript for security reasons (see here).

Oh but it does. Im not talking about embedding my LJ photos gallery into my livejournal, nor anything else into my livejournal. Im talking about embedding my LJ photo gallery into my website.

Oh, I see. We're on two completely separeate pages here. Sorry.

You can embed your journal, but you can't embed something into your journal on LJ (with the advanced customzations).

I would be extremely surprised if it happenned soon as it seems from my memory that the JavaScript is based on S1 styles and since FotoBilder is S2 . . . it makes things different.

Oh I see. I use the S2 style (component) for my journal, but it does still post to my site via javascript. I was just hoping the scrapbook would do the same... but it seemed much more complicated than the journal...

the javascript code to embed your livejournal into another website is still an s1 style.

if you have an s1 style created on your account you can still view it using customview.cgi or whatever it is even tho your journal is currently using s2.

The snippet of code to embed your journal via JS doesn't care what kind of style you have. I use it on my website with my own S2 style; I previously had it use a custom S2 style that was different from the one seen on my LJ by default.

customview.cgi takes the same "styleid=<stylenumber>" or "s2id=<stylenumber>" syntax that any other part of LJ does.

I am really sorry to append these questions to a previous thread, but I can't find any way to start my own thread in communities. I can't find it in the FAQ: I can't find any little link or button or command. SO here it is.

I also can't find a FAQ for fotobilder, or managing illustrations in the body of one's journal. I keep surfing around, but I can't find the simplest things.

1. I would like to show a picture in my journal.
2. I'd like to put that picture, not in the user picture place, but in another place among the permanent side pieces to my journal.
3. I'd like to be able to force my pictures to appear in the correct order. I can't figure out any organizing principle that fotobilder might be using to scramble my pictures, and for the time being I've given up.
4. I'd like all the subgalleries to be listed on the very front page, and on the index of each parent gallery that has them, even if there are loose pictures in the parent gallery.
5. I'd like to replace the fonts in the index pages and comments.

I realize that if I knew even a smidgen of HTML, I could answer many of these questions myself. But I am trying to use livejournal as a way to learn hands-on, but I can't if I can't find any instructions!

To make a new post in a community, create a new post as if you were going to post in your own journal. At the bottom there is a drop down menu where you can select which journal you want to post to. Select the community you want to post in, and make the post.

1. To show a picture in a livejournal entry:
- go to pics.livejournal.com
- go to manage -> galleries
- click "edit" for the gallery that has images you want to post
- click "pictures"
- put a checkmark in the box for the images you want to post
- click "post selected photos to journal"
- it will generate code, you can add your own comments, then post as normal.
2. The only way I know how you could do this would be to make it your background image. Other than that, I don't know. I don't make livejournal styles.
3. to re-order the images in a gallery:
- go to pics.livejournal.com
- go to manage -> galleries
- click "edit" for the gallery that has images you want to post
- click "pictures"
- under each thumbnail there are buttons with < and > symbols on them. Click the arrow to move the photo in that direction.
- Click "save positions"
4. Whether or not subgalleries are listed on the front page, and in their parent galleries, is a function of the style you choose. Change your style to find one that suits your needs.
5. Again, fonts are in the styles, some styles can be customized with the font of your choice.
