How would i go about making a 3 column masonry for an image gallery? I dont see it as a gallery display type

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.

Cheers!

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.

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!

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!

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?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

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

Cheers!

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?

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

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 :)

I installed the plugin (Unattach) but the result is the same :(

tommusrhodus

Did you actually do anything with the plugin? You still need to unattached the image from the page from your media gallery.

Not sure about the drag / drop issue you mention, I’ll run some testing.

Cheers

Hi,

Jus wondering if it is possible to create an album page for different gallery collection?

Thanks

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

I’m not 100% clear what you mean, can you give a few more details of how you’d want this to work? :)

Cheers

hello,

how do I add a password protected gallery site??

thanks

Hi

1 Is it possible to link the images in the gallery to other websites? So when you click on an image from the front page, your are directed to another link? Just like http://www.yeggi.com/

2 Can I have the gallery as the front page?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

1. Yep

2. You can have any of the gallery types as the homepage.

Cheers!

Default-user

Great. Last questions:

1 Can I put the images in categories? 2 Can I add a search button to search in categories?

tommusrhodus

Hey there,

Sorry, no and no, the image are tied to the gallery pages you see them in, there’s no categorisation or search ability for them.

Cheers
