Portico is an entry parser plugin for displaying small to medium size photo galleries as a single blog entry. Portico blog entries are displayed in three different ways, depending on the context:

  1. Displaying short series of thumbnails, whenever the entry is not individually rendered at its permanent URL (e.g. on the front page of your blog, amongst other entries).
  2. Displaying all the thumbnails for the collection, whenever the entry is rendered at its permanent URL.
  3. Slideshow-like, displaying a larger version of the photo, possibly including 'next' and 'previous' links to navigate though all the previews of the collection.

It parses and renders blog entries that have a .port file extension. The Portico blog entry file format is different from most other Pyblosxom entry types in that it follows the simple '.ini' style syntax.
