Many questions re the size the photos need to be for best full width layout, and you always answer 1000px in size…..but what does this mean exactly? 1000 width? 1000 height? some total of both? what exactly are the width and height requirements for photos to be uploaded for best display in the full width layout?
Please check my reply to your comment above
P.S. The 1000px recommendation is regarding the optimal image size for the time to load the image, not for displaying the image. There is no optimal size/ratio for this layout as the image is designed to fill the screen size and the display image size always depends on the current screen size – on every different screen the image will be displayed in a different way.
thanks for replying so quickly. I now understand the reference to 1000 pixels, but I still don’t have a clear understanding of what size I should make my photos before uploading for the best results. Right now they are many sizes, and I assume I should upload them at a uniform size? I want the slides to look their best and not be different sizes, so can you recommend some parameters for size to upload photos? thanks
If for example, you would like the images to be best displayed on a standard laptop screen, a good image size would be around 1440×900 pixels. If you need a more detailed clarification about this, can you please use our support site to post your question as this is the only place where the Pexeto items support is handled. Thank you!
Can filtered galleries still be lightbox? right now it looks like they are two options. Here is what I need to do:
1) filtered galleries for different topics/subjects with drop downs for subcategories
2) a feature (lightbox?) which allows the viewer to click on any photo in the gallery to see a larger and clear view of the chosen photo.
Thanks for your help on this.

Hello, I like the theme a lot – good job!
One question: I am getting WordPress Error message-
“Image cannot be loaded. Make sure the path is correct and image exist.” whenever i selct Item Type in Portfolio Setting different to Full-Height Slider or Full-Width Slider. Full-Height Slider and Full-Width Slider work fine!
Any ideas what may be wrong and how to fix it?
First of all – I’m glad you like the theme

PexetoGridGallery without wordpress please use ?
because “EVENT BINDING AND HANDLER FUNCTIONS”
At this point we don’t have a non-WordPress version of the gallery, I’m sorry.
Hi, Just purchased, love the theme… When i click on a blog image it opens in a separate window, is there anyway to make the image open in the full height slider, the same way as gallery images do?
I’m glad you like the theme!
The gallery’s full height slider is part of the gallery page template, so by default there isn’t an option to make a blog image open a full height slider. Alternatively if you have some coding experience, you can modify the blog’s featured image code to link to an existing gallery slider instead of the single post page.
Ok Thank you, I am also trying to alter the captions style in the themes style.css, however there is no effect on the blog image captions display when altering any of the following code
border: 1px solid E6E6E6;
am I doing something wrong, I simply want the image to display at 100% without a border but with the caption text below?
P.S. When posting please also provide a link to your site so we can take a look. Thanks
I have gone to your knowledge base and this question is not covered.
In the expression photo theme, once I have uploaded my photos to the Library and named them, how do I put them into the gallery categories?
I don’t see any way to do this from the media library.
The way you create a Grid Gallery that supports categories is not by adding the images to the Media Library, but by creating portfolio items. You can find detailed instructions about how to create a grid gallery in the Template Pages -> Grid Gallery section of the documentation. You can also watch this video to see how the gallery is created with the theme.
If you have any further questions, can you please open a ticket on our support site here:

I’ve noticed that if I post a single image into a blog post and have it link to the media file, Lightbox is not used.
However, if I insert a gallery and again select to link to the media file, then Lightbox IS used.
I would like Lightbox to be used in ALL cases so that when a user clicks on an image they don’t lose my entire website when they’re taken to the image in their browser.
Do you know why this is the case and how to fix it?
Planning on a woocommerce version?
The theme is compatible with WooCommerce – it is not an official WooCommerce theme, however it looks and works well with the plugin.
hello and thaks for a great theme!
I have made a full height gallery but my problem is that it crops the bottom of my pictures! What to do?
I’m glad you like the theme
P.S. When posting please also provide a link to your gallery so we can take a look. Thanks
Hi, I can’t find “Pexeto’s portfolio posts loader”. I need this for the sidebar widget “latest project”. Greetings.
It is included in the “plugins” folder of the main download package – you can read more about the plugins included in the “Plugins included” section of the documentation.
two problems with my installation:
- After updating to the new WP-Version (3.9.1) all the features images in the grid-gallery page are missing. Can you help? (lib/utils/cache is 755)
- The nice thumbnail bar has never worked on my site. Did i miss the function to switch it on or something? I could only find a threat how to hide it (http://goo.gl/4IHwAq).
P.S. When posting can you please also provide a link to your site so we can have a look? Thanks
Hello, great theme! I`m almost convinced to buy it.
Would you just tell me if there is way to show portfolio category same as gallery view?
i mean (based on your demo site), im opening standard gallery, then clicking on one of the items, then I`m getting again standard gallery view, just with photos from that category?
Thank you, I’m glad you like the theme
I can see that you have already purchased the theme, but just to answer your question – this is possible by loading different categories of items on the different gallery pages and in the main gallery page, you can link each portfolio item to its corresponding gallery page.
Wasn’t simple, but i`ve figured it out
Still, thank you for the answer.
Great template and am generally very happy with it.
Could you please advise me how could I get rid of this problem – just tweeking the css didn’t help or maybe I didn’t tweek the right class and @place.
P.S. When posting can you please also provide a link to your site so we can inspect the code. Thanks
Hi. Can the fullscreen gallery show thumbnails in the bottom. l’m referring to this page http://pexetothemes.com/demos/expression_wp/portfolio/mountain-bike/
The fullscreen portfolio slider doesn’t support a thumbnail preview, I’m sorry. Alternatively if that’s a very important functionality to you, you may consider linking the portfolio item to a fullscreen slideshow page that supports thumbnails.
OK. But, I assume that will open another window, right? For the sake of simplicity, I’ll rather have everything on the same page. Do you plan to introduce that functionality? I really like this theme, but I want to make life easier for my clients who browse my portflio.
It won’t be opened in another window, but the page will be reloaded. Unfortunately at this point I can’t really say for sure whether we’re going to implement this functionality.
in the menu, is it possible to display the title of the current page in a different color? I can not find the solution in the css code.
thank you very much
I really like this theme, but the slider doesn’t work nice (‘natural’) on mobile devices. Can the slider be adjusted, so it behaves like e.g. the iOS-photobrowser?
And, is there a dark-option for the frame and elements?
PS: I know you have a support site, but I’d rather not create a user-account just to ask a pre-sales question. I hope you understand that.
...one more note: for me the slider doesn’t work nice on desktop browser too. If I scroll and swipe with a touch-mouse (e.g. Apple’s Mighty Mouse), the images act relatively unforseen
The gallery slider supports touch swipe events – I have tested it on mobile devices and it works well for me. I’m not sure what effect exactly you are trying to accomplish, but generally there aren’t out of the box options to change the default swipe effect, so it would require some code tweaks. As for the Apple Mouse scrolling – thank you for reporting this – I have added it to my update list, so we’ll make sure to check it out.
Hi, i have a Problem that started a few weeks ago on http://www.carsten-nichte.de ...My oldest Portfolio Items (you can reach them if you click two or three times on the “more” Button) only show “Broken Links” instead of a thumbnail… But the images are there… if you klick on the Portfolio-Items you see the Content in full size. It seems that timthumb is not outputting a small scaled image in this cases… and i have now idea why. I never changed the old items. May be this is an “amount”-Problem? There are now 79 Portfolio-Items with summary 499 Images in the List… is there a maximum? Do you have any idea to fix this? – Carsten
okay. thank you. done.
I like your themes Expression and Story a lot. I believe they are quite similar in their features and settings. However, there’re still a couple of things that I don’t understand:
1. Is it possible to make the Home page as a fixed photo?
2. Is it possible to load galleries page by page (not with the button “Load more”) ?
3. The same question as about the theme Story – possibility of the Path bar instead the Filter bar (e. g. Home>Photos>Travel>Italy>People).
Thanks a lot again.
I’m glad you like our themes
1. If you mean a fullscreen photo with nothing else – yes, you can accomplish this – with both themes you can use the fullscreen slideshow page as a home page and just insert one image. In Expression you might only want to hide the thumbnail navigation which can be easily accomplished with a minor tweak.
2. The Load More button is the main way to load additional items (there isn’t a numbered pagination option included), so you can either use this button or if you don’t have too many items you can set it to show all the items on page load, without the Load More button.
3. You can use a Breadcrumbs plugin for that, however you would have to apply a code tweak to add the functionality to the gallery page.
