I appreciate @joro's monthly photodumps…

@cdevroe The do look very nice, thanks for sharing. I miss being able to have a way to format posts like that. That’s one thing I love about Ghost, and Medium also did that with ease.

@maique These would be perfect for you. Or for everyone who does those everyday photowalk posts @cdevroe

@maique I'm working within the micro.blog limitations for images, but I do have gallery style functionality planned for Tiny. It would be a power user CSS driven feature, but it will at least exist. I still have a few things to work out, but it's on the way.

@Mtt Oh!! That would be awesome. Still have time to enroll in a “CSS Power User” workshop somewhere 😅🤣

@maique I'd document it for people, you'd catch on in 5 minutes. Just a matter of using the right classes if I can work out all the math. Maybe I should enroll in an "Advanced Algebra for Web Design" class.

@Mtt @maique that sounds amazing. This is something that I’ve been wanting to do on my site as well. I avoid posting photos sometimes, but/c I don’t have a good way to do something like that.

@donnydavis @maique Hopefully I can have it pushed out and documented this week.

@Mtt You're definitely tempting me to switch over :)

@maique I’m pretty sure doing something on M.b would be easy to pull off.

@Mtt That’s impressive. Can’t wait to try it out. I’ll be pretty busy for a few days now, but looking forward to next week, when things should be back to the usual slowness.

@Mtt Oh! That sounds cool! Looking forward to that. You are doing excellent work with the theme. 👍🏻

@svbck @maique @pratik @pimoore @donnydavis Here's a preview of how it looks. If anyone is comfortable installing a plugin straight from Github (as opposed to the Micro.blog plugin directory), and wants to test it out, let me know.

@Mtt That preview looks fantastic!

@Mtt @svbck @maique @pratik @pimoore @donnydavis Formats differently based on screen size.

@heyloura Thanks! Still got some tweaks to work out, but it's a start.

@Mtt Looks great. Is this how it will look on the single post page or the home page? If on the home page, I guess we can hide it with the more tag, right? A couple of suggestions
- allows for some gaps between photos - option to render photos with rounded corners - will this work on non-Tiny themes? 😋

@pratik Answers:

  1. That's how it will look on single post page.
  2. That's how it will look on home page, but yes you can add a more tag as well. I recommend it with the Summary Posts plugin.
  3. Gaps between photos, rounded corners, borders, and other tweaks like that can be done by user in Custom CSS. I have to keep things as basic as possible by default to accommodate the widest amount of use cases.
  4. Non Tiny Themes. Yes, it will work. However, there is a likely possibility that you'll need to tweak things, particularly if you have extensive built-in styling for lists.

@Mtt this is awesome. You are a magician. I haven’t installed a plugin outside of the directory yet, but would like to test it out when I get some time.

@Mtt BTW thanks for replying to my Qs. I’ll definitely try it out on my current theme when you release it as a plugin. Or via GitHub on the weekend. Whichever is earlier 😀
