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:
- 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).
- Displaying all the thumbnails for the collection, whenever the entry is rendered at its permanent URL.
- 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.
