Add “Select All” and “Select None” controls to your Client Response Gallery

(Applies to CE4 CRG and Backlight Client Response)

At the request of a Client Response Gallery user, Matt and Ben added some code to the CRG plug-in that will allow the visitor to either select all images or select none.

This is very easy to implement in your Client Response galleries or albums. Just add a bit of html code to either the Page Copy (md) or Sidebar Copy (md) field. I suggest adding it to the sidebar just below or above the legend in either your uploaded galleries or in your Publisher template.

To add a Select All option, include the following code:

<a href='#' class='select-all'>Select All</a>

To add a Select None option, include the following code:

<a href='#' class='select-none'>Select None</a>

You can add these links anywhere you want in either the main copy area or the sidebar of your Client Response Gallery. A logical place would be at the end of the Legend in the sidebar (CE4).

In Backlight, add the code to your Client Response album template in the Album Copy > Main Copy area.

  1. Hi Rod
    Select All” and “Select None” controls successfully implemented. Clicking on these links leads not to the expected result. I’m getting a 404 error. Any Idea?


    1. not without a link to the site. This would be best addressed in the forum so that Matt and Ben can see it as well.

  2. It looks to me like a quotation mark problem. In your code they are slanted. They should be straight.
    Try putting the code into a plain text editor and overwriting the existing quote marks. They should look straight in the editor.
    If your text editor doesn’t give you straight quotes ( I think I heard about a Mac one that doesn’t), then try a different text editor. Text Wrangle for Mac is free. So it Notepad ++ for Windows.
