Hi!

I would like to include gallery images / items from a specific gallery page in another page's template.
Using something like: <% control Page(mygallerypage) %>$Content<% end_control %> doesen't work because this can only be used for the static content / text but not for the dynamic gallery images.

How could I include those images in a different template anyway?

Best regards

I would like to call those images in another template.
willr (my hero) gave me the code in the IRC channel. Maybe this might be helpful for other users, too:

Calling gallery page items in another template:

<% control Page(your_gallerypage) %>
<% if GalleryItems %>
<% control GalleryItems %>
<a id="ViewLink-$ID" class="$JSLightWindow"<% if JSMedia %> rel="$JSMedia"<% end_if %> href="$ViewLink" title="$Title">
<img src="$ThumbnailURL" alt="$Title"/>
</a>
<% end_control %>
<% else %>
No Images
<% end_if %>
<% end_control %>

You have to check that all the corresponding JS and CSS files (e. g. for lightbox) are called correctly in you template.
The only thing I'm struggling with so far is the multi language use of this feature...

Enter this code

$RecentImagesGallery(10)   

in any page template file. This will pull the latest 10 images from your image gallery.
