This theme is just so awesome and I especially like the masonry view!

I was thinking of buying this theme for my art based website where images are put in different galleries. At the time I have about 1000 images and I’m using Nextgen gallery plugin where I can add tags to images and show a gallery based on a tag. What I read from the comments here, I can’t tag images with this theme and that way create galleries on the fly?

This would be quite important for me because I add 20-40 new images every month and on every update I create a blog post which has a link to the newly added images (tagged with date). I assume that only way do that with Milli is to create a gallery view to blog post?

I know it would be quite a work to change from Nextgen to Milli because I’d need to reupload all the photos and I would lose some features but atleast I would have an awesome looking website! :)

Hey there,

You’re right, Milli is a little more simple in it’s method. You make a gallery page and set the view settings how you want them, then upload images to that page and they will be displayed in the gallery :)

I aimed for Milli to be as simple as possible, but this does mean a few more high-level functionalities like tagging do not exist :)

top-header { margin-bottom: 0px; }

I added the above code to the customize custom css section, but it did not center the header as explained previously, did I miss something? How do I center the header.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

There isn’t a centred header option for Milli currently, this is something we’ll consider for a theme update.

Hello,

So far I’ve enjoyed the theme. One issue I am coming across is it seems it is requiring my to reupload media everytime I want to use something in a gallery. I can’t seem to find an option to use images already contained in the media gallery. I find it a little silly that i would have to constantly reupload the same image over and over just to use it in multiple galleries.

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

What you’re dealign with here is the “WordPress Attachments System”, something we’ve hooked into for speed and stability in Milli.

As you correctly point out, at the moment this system requires images to be uploaded each time, this is so that they can be “attached” and WordPress itself does not currently allow attachments to span multiple posts/pages.

If this every changes, you can be sure that Milli will be updated to work with the updated attachments system.

I hope this helps.

Cheers :)

Hello!

Pre-purchase question: is it possible to have the side header and have the homepage be a LARGE image slider (not with lightbox, just embedded in the homepage), as opposed to masonry?

Thanks!

Vince

Hey there,

Yep :)

I’d love to get a few questions answered before I purchase, if I can. :-)

1) Can I make a home page with a single static image with the navigation to the left?

2) How difficult would it be to add a key line stroke around the individual images and maybe the thumbnails? My images are usually pretty dark and I would like to use a black background on everything, so a gray key line looks good to me.

3) On the demo page, I can’t get the side navigation to work with the 4 column layout, although I see it displayed that way on the All Gallery Types page. I’m assuming I can make that the default.

4) After purchase, what can be done with the footer? Can it be removed, or does it need to stay to display your copyright info?

Thanks in advance. This template looks amazing!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. Yes.

2. You’d need to make sure you’re ready to do some CSS work, but that would be pretty simple.

3. That’s likely just the hacks we’ve used to show both header types in the demo, it;s working perfectly on my development site :)

4. You can delete all copyright info etc :)

Cheers!

Where can I go to ask questions about customization? I have a few, probably simple, questions to ask, but don’t want to bug support, and the link you give for this in your documentation (http://www.madeinebor.com/customisations/) gives a 404.

For the record, the two main issues I would like to find out about are… 1) How can I change the opacity of the backgrounds when an image is being viewed? (I’d like to make it more opaque because the thumbs in the background are a little distracting).

2) Is it possible to turn of the captions below each image?

Skoorb
Skoorb Purchased

*turn off the captions

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Sorry, that link is now:

http://madeinebor.com/contact/

I better put a redirect on the old link :)

Just to check, do you mean the transparent black background of the lightbox?

Cheers

Skoorb

I always get a little confused when I hear the word lightbox, because as a commercial photographer it refers to a place where editors (not retouchers) choose the selects from a shoot. :-)

But, I think that’s what I’m talking about. When you click on a thumbnail to bring up the full size images, the thumbnails are still visible behind, but I’d like to darken it just a little, but not go completely opaque.

Also, when I said “captions,” what I’m really talking about is the “Title” of the image that shows below each image when they are displayed. I’d love to delete that, if possible. I managed to find the title of the static image on my home page, and make it go away, but it didn’t do anything to the image titles in the galleries.

Actually, when I first read that this template had a lightbox feature, I was excited that I was going to be able to create galleries for clients to rate and comment on individual images from a shoot. D’oh!

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Ahh yeah, we use lightbox in a different meaning I guess :)

Add the following to appearance => customise => custom css

.viewer { background-color: rgba(0,0,0,0.9); }
.viewer .caption { display: none; }

Cheers!

Works great! Thank you so much!

In a perfect world, it would be nice if the images in the viewer were centered top to bottom, now that the text is gone. :-)

Also, from my original pre-purchase question, How might I play around with putting a keyline stroke around images and/or thumbnails? I’m not sure of the color or pixel width yet, but would like to see if it helps, especially with my darker images… You can se how my old site looks in this regard. ayola.com

I’m so sorry to bug you with this stuff, I thought I could figure out most of it on my own, and have done a lot other than what I’ve asked about. I promise not to bug you much more.

Hmm… I added a simple img border to the custom CSS, but unfortunately I forgot that my logo will also get the stroke, as well as the image on my splash page. The ONLY place it doesn’t show up is in the viewer. I tried!

Skoorb
Skoorb Purchased

OK! I figured out the border! It works great.

img { border:1px solid #757575; }[/code]

Now just the centering… I’ll look some more, so maybe I’‘ll figure it out before you see this. :-)

OK, I added a simple margin-top: 25px to the viewer and it seems to be about right. Is there a better way, or is that fine?

Here’s the site, still in the works, in a temp directory.

Ah… Just found a problem with that method… If you’re scrolled down the page when you click on a thumnail, you can see the thumbnails peeking above the top of the viewer. :-(

Skoorb
Skoorb Purchased

Fixed that too! I just moved that margin-top into the .viewer img tag, instead of .viewer

So, it looks like this: .viewer img { border:1px solid #757575; margin-top: 25px; }
tommusrhodus

Woah, you’ve been busy! :)

Is there anything left you’d like me to take a look at, or are you all sorted?

Cheers!

I’m sure I’ll think of something! :-)

One small thing though… What does changing the Lightbox Animation speed do? I’ve put in what I thought were wildly different numbers, but don’t see anything different.

Skoorb
Skoorb Purchased

Aside from that, is it possible to adjust how quickly the images appear in the viewer? Can they fade in, or just appear suddenly?

tommusrhodus

The animation speed changes the speed that the lightbox moves the images left/right, it’s in milliseconds.

Unfortunately the lightbox functions are set as is, though you can try setting the animation speed to 1 for a really snappy appear in/out.

Cheers

Skoorb
Skoorb Purchased

Ah!! This is interesting… So, for me, there were no animations at all from the beginning, so when I set the number with anything from 1-1,000,000 it looked the same, the images just appeared suddenly. They didn’t slide to the left at all. It wasn’t until I unchecked the “Turn on Animations” box and then turned it back on, that I saw the effect. This is with Safari on the Mac, in case that info matters to you.

Thanks for all of your help!

Something I’ve been thinking about, but is probably beyond the scope of this theme is making one page’s background a different color than the rest. I have one gallery that are images on white backgrounds (which is kind of an inside joke among some commercial photographer friends of mine). It would be cool to design that page basically inverted from the black pages. Which means it would not only have a different background, but different menu color and a different logo. Although the menu color I could get around by choosing a mid gray that can be seen against both black or white.

Hey :)

Ahhh, the old WordPress checkbox bug, yep, it’s a known bug, I’m hoping WordPress v4.0 should fix it (fingers crossed) it’s just to do with the option and your database, as soon as it works it will work forever, but as you pointed out, turning it on and off is sometimes needed.

You could definitely do what you meantion, but you’d need to do some custom CSS for it, if you take a look at the HTML of your page, you’ll see a unique class for the page on the body tag, something like:

.page-id-78

If you used that to prefix your CSS, you could write styles just for one page :)

Hello. You’re theme looks amazing. Can I put animated GIF’s into the gallery?

/ AndersMartin

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

No, sorry, animated .gifs would be cropped and the animation then lost.

Really like this theme – a client of mine is an author and currently has six titles released. he wants the book covers as the images. Is it possible to have 3×3 and control the height and width of the front cover images?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

You can have 3×3 with auto heights, see the masonry gallery examples on the demo for this.

Cheers!

steveconlon

Thanks – last question – just to confirm before purchase -

So it will be possible to have 3×3 with comments so that when a visitor clicks on image they will be brought to the image with description text and comments?

tommusrhodus

Exactly :)

Though Milli being a gallery theme may be a little underpowered for your needs I fear, make sure that the image+description+comments page would suit your purposes exactly, because upgrading that page would require theme customisation since it’s not a “post” page like a blog post, it’s an “attachment” page which is a little less powerful.

Cheers

steveconlon

No actual visitor comments are needed – it’s a simple brochure site essentially, updated with any other books he will release in the future. He’s not looking for any more functionality other than book cover, description (summary and chapter list) and his email address. Thanks for your help

S

tommusrhodus

No problem :)

steveconlon

Is it possible, when a visitor click on an image, to have it appear smaller in the page with the description? Also is it possible for each image to have a widget on the right?

steveconlon

...actually ignore all that!

Awesome theme! I am having an issue with getting the Facebook share icon to appear below my images. Only the twitter share link shows up. The social icon for FB does appear on the header/sidebar though. Basically, I need for the viewer to be able to share the image/link on their own FB timeline. Thank you

tommusrhodus

I’d need a page URL to know exactly what we’re talking about.

I figured out how to have the image “Liked”, but not the ability for someone to share it on their own FB timeline. Thank you for your time!

tommusrhodus

I’m not sure that Zilla Share supports this, but note that a like using this plugin shares the page on the likers timeline :)
