Currently I am running in D7 with the following modules:
- Media 7.x-2.0
- Views 7.x-3.7
- Colorbox 7.x-2.4
I am trying to create an image gallery using these modules with the following steps. Please note problems I am running into will be in bold.
- Go to admin/structure/views
- Click Add new view
- Select File for show, and image for type
- Unchecked Create a page, and check Create a block
- Select Grid of File for Display Format
- Click Continue and Edit
This is where things go off the rails for me, what I would like to do is have ALL images that are tagged display in a custom image style I already created (200x200) in a 4 column grid, and when you click on them they open up into a normal sized image colorbox.
Now I have seen this done when you create a image content type, but that way is clunky compared to using the media module, and I have to believe that there is an easy way to do this with these modules, and I am simply missing it.
I have read about Media Gallery module, but there seem to be a lot of errors with it and I am not thrilled with the idea of it.
Any help on how to get what I am trying to do done would be greatly appreciated as this is becoming a bother.
