improving default display for photo information

Hi Piwigo Community,

I often hear about the "not so perfect" layout of photo informations on the "picture.php" page. I'm talking about that:

http://piwigo.org/forum/showimage.php?pid=115092&filename=photo_infos_2.1.png

This afternoon, I made some test to improve this default display (for core themes I mean: Sylvia, clear, dark). Themes like Simple* or Gally* are not concerned because they alerady have a much better layout for photo informations, in my opinion.

So here is my test:
http://piwigo.org/forum/showimage.php?pid=115092&filename=photo_infos_show-20100727.png
when you click on "Show information", it then displays:
http://piwigo.org/forum/showimage.php?pid=115092&filename=photo_infos_hide-20100727.png

What's your opinion about it?

Re: improving default display for photo information

I'm still working on photo information. I have designed a block with tabs. Inspired by Gally* themes.

Re: improving default display for photo information

What disturbs me, it is that one must choose to post EITHER information, OR comments.
Personally, I will like to see posted two blocs…

The new proposed designs are nice, but if the second one is chosen, it would be nice to be able to select whether comments are displayed in a tab or below the image properties.

But, that should normally then be an improvement of [extension by gbo] Look_like_Gbo 2.

Anyway it's a nice project :-)

I like the fact that it doesn't show too many information at the same time.

What's important when you post a comment is previous comments, don't you think? then do you really need to read photo informations when you're writing your comment?

About this new feature, in the next release of Gally (1.3.2) I have implemented something to be abble to display some raw informations in the tabs, allowing to display something like this (cf. picture).

For the plugin AdvancedMetadata, I inject data into the {$metadata} variable, using the metadata structure to displlay info (it works and it looks like piwigo)
For the plugin GMaps (you don't know it because it is not yet published) I inject some special values in the structure of the {$metadata} variable, and add an ugly thing into the template :

Code:

    {if isset($metadata)}
    {foreach from=$metadata item=meta key=id}
    <div id="imageMeta{$id}" class="imageMeta tabPanel">
      <div id="imageMetaContainer{$id}">
        <div class="imageMetaBg">&nbsp;</div>

        {if count($meta.lines)>0 and !array_key_exists('<!--rawContent-->', $meta.lines)}     <===== Ugly trick : testing what is in the structure
          <table id="displaymeta{$id}" class="displaymeta infoTable">                         <===== If classic, using classic display
            {foreach from=$meta.lines item=value key=label name=metaloop}
              {if ($smarty.foreach.metaloop.iteration-1) % #metaNumCols# == 0}
                {if !$smarty.foreach.metaloop.first}</tr>{/if}
                {if !$smarty.foreach.metaloop.last}<tr>{/if}
              {/if}
              <td class="label">{$label|@translate}</td>
              <td class="value">{$value}</td>
            {/foreach}
          </table>
        {else}                                                                                <===== else if the label equals "<!--rawContent-->"
          {assign var='empty' value='<!--rawContent-->'}                                      <===== just display data as raw content
          {$meta.lines.$empty}
        {/if}
      </div>
    </div> <!-- imageMeta -->
    {/foreach}
    {/if}

It would be a good thing if in your improvment, you can think about a clean system allowing to do something like this...
:-D

What's important when you post a comment is previous comments, don't you think? then do you really need to read photo informations when you're writing your comment?

YES I need !
1- See "casual people" : they will not see/understand the tabs. they will only scroll and see the info displayed first. So it's not user friendly
2- ALL the people scroll and read the first info displayed, in order to judge the quality/relevance of the page/photo

The blog, the social site and many many site are made on the same template : the comments are under the content to comment and the info on the right or just under the content also ; deviant art ( http://flop25.deviantart.com/#/d2969kb ), flickr (they just have a new structure http://www.flickr.com/photos/journaldugeek/4620624471/ ) .... So a click just to see the comments and one more to see the info without seeing the comments at the same time, we obtain finally a lot of limitation/restriction.
what I suggest : a "show more info" (no show all) -maybe on a menu on one side-  and in the admin part, a page to manage what will be displayed, because the use of piwigo are numerous and a photograph will want lot's of info whereas a family wants only few info. Remember that we have many post on the forum about "how hide/showing that" and "In case of conflict, consider users over authors over implementors over specifiers over theoretical purity." ;)
