Getting images in ImageGallery to appear in a templated page?

Hi all,

I need to get the images that are displayed in the gallery to appear in the the normal templated page when a thumbnail is clicked. I have set the pop up to 'none' but that just displays the image and nothing else.

Any ideas?

It's not really set up to do that, but you could do it pretty easily by subclassing it out. Some pseudo-code:

class MyImageGalleryPage_Controller extends ImageGalleryPage_Controller
function image()
return $this->customise(array('Item' => DataObject::get_by_id("ImageGalleryItem",$this->urlParams['ID'])))->renderWith(array('MyImageGalleryPage_image','Page');

         <% control GalleryItems %>
            <li style="height:{$Top.ThumbnailSize}px;width:{$Top.ThumbnailSize}px;">
                  <a href="<% control Top %>$Link(image)<% end_control %>$ID"><img src="$ThumbnailURL" alt="$Title"/></a>
         <% end_control %>

<% control Item %>
<% end_control %>

Something like that oughta work.
