Inline Image Preview

Project Title #

Inline image preview for collaboration

Background #

Many of Liferay's built-in tools are designed for collaboration, such as message boards, wikis, blogs, etc. Often, posts are decorated with associated images as attachments.

Use Cases #

A user reading a message board post containing multiple images wants to see them quickly, in their browser, without having to click individually, download, view save.

The Problem #

Currently, Liferay's collaboration tools allow attachments of images but typically display them at the end of content (most notably message boards), in full size, taking up valuable screen real estate and muddying the display.

The Solution #

Modify Liferay's collaboration tools that allow image attachments to show smaller thumbnails, organized neatly, and upon clicking, open up a lightbox or other inline display (similar to what currently exists in the Image Gallery).

Skills Needed #

  • Required: Java, Struts, JavaScript, CSS
  • Nice to have: Liferay

Prerequisites #


Deliverables #

  • Complete code changes to Liferay Portal 6.0.6 to implement an inline image preview for collaboration tools: message boards, etc.
  • Unit tests for all new and changed code.
  • Documentation required to configure above applications
