Fantastic template! Looks amazing. Only one question… Is there a limit to how many images can be on the homepage? Does it automatically create a page navigation or is there a max for the home page images?

Thanks. Best of luck with sales!

Hi OurWebMedia,

Thank you!

There is no limit on number of images and you can load as many images into the homepage as you want. Moreover there is no need for navigation because images only load as you scroll down.

Thanks again, WFL Theme Team

Can you set up categories or different galleries?

goThemeTeam

Hi drhoo,

This is WordPress, of course you can set up categories.

Sure, you can set up different galleries:

Thanks, I just wasn’t sure how different galleries/albums could be organised and displayed. For example I would want to have a list of galleries on the home page so that when a user clicks on a gallery they would then be taken to the specific page with all the photos.

Hi drhoo,

It depends on how you want to display a list of galleries. If you want to display a list of links, then this is not a problem. But if you want to display a list of galleries that looks like a gallery page (i.e. displays a list of images), then this will require a bit of custom development. Actually that seems a good idea, we’ll discuss that.

Is it possible to have each image link to a specific URL when clicked? This would be a great theme for an affiliate site.

goThemeTeam

Hi kingiscoo,

Yes, we have a development version that allows doing something similar. So it opens a specific URL instead of lightbox popup.

Is it possible to turn off the lightbox feature and have the image go directly to the post itself?

goThemeTeam

Hi crimsonlab,

Yes, you can turn off the lightbox feature. Currently it’s displaying a list of images attached to a page. Did you mean if it can display the featured images and posts links?

This would be fantastic, as a photographer I would want a submenu under Portfolio to have categories: People, Landscapes, etc.

This is one of the best image centric site on Themeforest!

Fantastic Template, i have seen it and i bought it a few minutes later! But after installing i always get the error message:

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_CONST, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or ‘}’ in /var/www/html/wp-content/themes/giga/library/GigaGallery.php on line 23

Please can you help what is here the problem?

Thanks a lot and best regards, Bernie

Hi Bernie,

Thank you!

That’s because you’re using PHP 4 .x. This theme requires PHP 5 .2 or a newer version. Most of the theme’s features are not supported by older versions. Just ask your host to switch you to PHP 5 .2 or a newer version.

In answer to your question, the number one feature that would improve this theme is gallery categories. A couple of previous commenters seem to have asked for this functionality. I’d love to see a Gallery menu item with sub menus that link to individual galleries similar to that shown on the front page currently.

Secondly, I like the grid layout for the home page, but I’d love it to have more options. I’d like to see each image optionally linking to: a) a lightbox image (as it currently does). b) a lightbox gallery c) a blog post d) a URL

Finally, as a sort of variation to gallery categories, I’d love to see a sorter in the gallery pages, so that you can filter by type or category. Much like the one here: http://www.kriesi.at/themes/avisio/portfolio/portfolio-4-columns-sortable/

Hope that makes sense!

Thanks, Glenn.

I just bought this theme, fantastic!

But I have a problem with the gallery: the preview images are not displayed in the right size, show smaller

See an example: http://goo.gl/GFYDX

Can you help me?

Thanks

Hi gonzaloplaza,

What size images are the originals you uploaded?

Thanks

gonzaloplaza

Hello I’m trying to upload images of 900×746 pixels but I have also tried other smaller sizes and the same happens. I’m using WP 3 .03

Thanks

gonzaloplaza

Hi

Finally solved the problem with the gallery. I reinstalled the theme :)

Hi there, I love your theme. I cannot find in the help file where the shortcodes are? It says there are 9. I need one for a button. Thank you!

goThemeTeam

Hi cindyr08!

Shortcodes should be visible in the left sidebar of the Wordpress admin panel. For further help, come on over to our searchable support forum—be sure to bring your purchase code with you (My Account -> Downloads -> Giga Gallery Blog for Wordpress -> License Certificate -> “Item Purchase Code”)

Hello. I want to buy this theme. I have several questions. 1.Smogu I translate the theme into the Russian language? 2. Is it possible to place on the main page category?

Sorry, I do not know much English. Thank you

goThemeTeam

Hello Suprizova! You might try this plugin for translation: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/global-translator/ If you have further questions, stop by our support forums and we’ll try to have an answer to you in 24 hours.

Hello, what a great yet simple theme!

I have three questions:

1) Does one have to create a special post type (or fill in the special field) in order to make the items appear in the gallery? Or do you create a gallery off the ordinary posts by just taking the first image of the post?

2) I want to add voting for each entry in the gallery (this should be rather simple; however, not knowing your ‘endless gallery scrolling’ code I don’t know if it would allow to sort items in a specific way (by date added, by rating, in random order). Do you feel like this theme is suitable for such sort of tweaking?

3) Are strings in your theme externalized for better localization, or will I need to scan through the php code to localize them?

goThemeTeam

Hi iafan,

Thank you! We have three answers:

1. You’ll create a gallery page and then assign images to fill it via the media library.

2. Because each gallery entry is an image and not a post, you would need to create individual posts for each and perhaps include links to those posts in the image descriptions.

3. All strings should be externalized, yes.

Best regards,

Hey can yall tell me how to get rid of the extra white space on your gallery? The wordpress gallery (displayed at the top of the page) displays the images just fine.

Great work, but I was having the same trouble as Gonzaloplaza. The default thumbnail size was set to 150×150. I had to change this to 214×214 and all is well!

Hi,

My hyperlinks in posts are not showing up as links—is there a known issue with this?

Also, is there a shortcode to create a graphical button?
