Hi AJ. I guess this might be super simple, i’m just not that familiar with code. How can i make the images on the slider a little bit larger? i dont’ like the bg bounding box i get on the top and bottom, i would like them to be almost fullscreen but with the sidebar menu. I was looking for an image size in %, or img heigth in px in the code, but i cannot get the changes to work.

i would also like to increase the image width for the masonry galleries. The portrait images look awesome, but the landscaped ones look quite small, like half the size of the portraits how can i double their size to look like the vertical oriented pics?

Thanks again

1. Changing the auto-scrolling slider images is actually a bit tricky. The main reason they are this size is to keep loading times fast (and also because at the time this was a cool design style). If you want to increase their sizes first you should edit the image cropping size at functions/img_defaults.php and then you want to alter via CSS the height of the #scroller-wrap div.

2. For the masonry images you just have to alter the CSS a bit by tweaking the width for the masonry-entry class. The current width (300) is set to match the design, so if you alter the width you might have to also alter the margins between the items and also the default cropping sizes (image resizing is done in functions/img_defaults.php)

How do I disable clicking (link) on images during the gallery slider? I do not want anyone to open the image separately but to only see it in the gallery view.

Default-user

I figured out how to do it. I removed this line from gallery-scroller.php

a href=”?php echo wp_get_attachment_url( $attachment ).....etc

How do I disable the slideshow from stopping when the mouse hovers over the scrolling gallery?

WPExplorer

To disable the auto slideshow you need to edit js/scroll_init.js and remove lines 10-14:

$("#makeMeScrollable").hover(function() {
            $(this).smoothDivScroll("stopAutoScrolling");
        }, function(){
            $(this).smoothDivScroll("startAutoScrolling");
        });
Default-user

Perfect,

I deleted only lines 11 and 12 because when hovering over (or clicking) the side arrows, it stops auto scrolling. So leaving lines 10, 13, and 14 means when I remove my cursor from the picture, the scrolling auto starts again. Thanks for pointing that out!

Is there any way to pause the slider for say… 3 seconds on initial load before starting the auto scroll? It just starts so quickly when the page loads, by the time I look at the first image, its half gone. I want people to see my first image as it is my favorite. Thanks!

www.markfenin.com Love this theme btw

Default-user

Also, noticed that if you click on an arrow to manually scroll to one direction (specifically the opposite direction of the auto_scroll) the slideshow will continue to play in the direction it was playing before being interrupted. Is there any way to make it switch once clicking or hovering over the directional arrows? I know it might be quite a bit of code.

WPExplorer

To add a delay you’ll need to edit the javascript found in js/scroll_init.js – you could wrap everything in a function and use the setTimeout function.

Without looking through all the javascript I’m not sure if you can do what you want to do with the hot spot scrolling (continue to play in that direction) – if you want have a look at this documentation page for the js plugin I’m using for the scroller – http://smoothdivscroll.com/options.html#hotSpotScrolling

Hello. How can I link the gallery images to a page or post instead of the lightbox? Thanks.

WPExplorer

This is a really advanced customization so I can’t walk you through it.

But basically one way of doing it is…

1. Register a new field for your images so you can give them links – http://codex.wordpress.org/Plugin_API/Filter_Reference/attachment_fields_to_edit

2. Alter the loops (see includes/gallery-[format].php) and add an if statement so if a link has been added it uses that for the link rather then the large image size.

3. Remove the javascript for the lightbox.

Hi,

I am really interested in buying your theme but I have a quick question first: I currently have a WordPress “ProPhoto” blog by Netrivet that uses a fixed width for the blog and pages. I want to continue using this blog as a blog and your theme as a portfolio website under the same domain. If I purchase your theme to use as my homepage, will the width of your theme effect the width of my current blog (or vice versa)?

I look forward to hearing from you – many thanks. Kris

WPExplorer

Hi Kris,

If you want to use a separate theme for your blog you really would have to install WordPress 2x or use a Multisite installation. You can’t have 2 themes running in the same installation.

Since you already have your blog setup I would recommend you create a new folder named “portfolio” on your server to install WordPress in that way you can install this theme on its own “site” located at your-site.com/portfolio/ – this way you can keep your permalinks for your blog.

hello, after changing the font menu with css manager, the menu is double. how can I go back to having a single menu? thanks.

WPExplorer

Changing the font wouldn’t create double menus. Are you sure you don’t have the menu location set in the Menu dashboard as well as a menu widget added? If you can share the URL maybe I can see better whats going on.

Default-user

thanks a.j., I fixed it. it is possible to change the font color in the menu?

WPExplorer

You can easily change the color of links in the sidebar with some custom CSS, example:

/*make sidebar links black*/
#sidebar a { color: #000; }

That would target all links added in the sidebar.

I need to change imgScroller position. I deleted the sidebar and i want change scroller position 0 px to left. http://ww2.studiocravis.com/1/gallery/deneme/

Please help me

WPExplorer

This space is added by the padding on the right contaner you’ll need to remove this left padding so that it spans 100% (via custom css of course) – http://cl.ly/image/0G032d1R080P

Hi AJ, I am working with PhotoPro and trying to create pages that just show scrolling galleries the way the pages look on the preview example. I found a youtube video where you demonstrated how to make the homepage just a gallery which I was able to do. But now I want to create two other pages one called Portfolio and one called Headshots with both pages being just like the homepage in that they just show a scrolling gallery. But I only see the option to Add Media on the pages which just creates thumbnails of images stacked down the page. Sorry if I missed this in all the comments but could you explain how I can add Scrolling Galleries onto the other pages? Thanks.

WPExplorer

You wouldn’t create “pages” for this you would create “galleries”. Have a look at the written documentation which shows you how to do this (updated recently).

Hi there,

I am trying to get my site up and going but am having a lot of trouble with the homepage and the menu. I cannot get the menu to appear without repeated pages and I cannot get a nice bold menu title, for example “Galleries” to appear over the pages that can be clicked on. You can see where i am at by visiting wisebynicole.com …Hopefully you can help me as soon as possible! Thank you!

WPExplorer

Your menu looks nice to me, not sure what the issue is…

Adding a bold menu item would require adding a custom class to your menu item and then adding CSS for that class in your theme. Or adding a span with inline style directly in the input field for the menu name.

Default-user

Hi, thanks for the reply. I figure out the menu for the most part except for two things. First, I have the bold HOME followed by About, Contact, and Home so I do not want HOME to repeat. Also, I cannot get the galleries to appear on the Home page. I set that page to the Homepage template but nothing has loaded on it. Please let me know!

Default-user

Hi really need help with this – can’t get my homepage gallery going or the Menu to not be repetitive. I don’t want to share my site until these things are fix. HELP PLEASE!!!

WPExplorer
  • Where it says “home” on your sidebar, that is your widget title. Simply leave the widget title blank to remove it.
  • Make sure your galleries have Featured Images, otherwise there won’t be anything to display on the homepage.

HI there,

I’ve been using the theme for some time now and it’s been great, thanks for the great job!

I decided to change things around a bit and ran into a problem. I wanted to have my menu split into two sections – Home and Galleries, bolded and separating the actual menu items, and then split my menu items under those. The comment right before me was asking the same thing but figured it out and their menu looks exactly like what I want to do now ( wisebynicole.com – sorry to the user, just wanted to show what I meant). This is what it looks like now: www.nelliehariphotography.com

Hi,

I’m just wondering if there is an easy solution to include text on the homepage under or above the slider?

Cheers, Lee

Hi Lee,

The only way is to alter the default homepage template.

Hi, AJ. Is there a way to change Scroller speed? (auto scroll when you open page), i absolutely love it, but want it to be a tad slower to showcase my first (best) photos on the ‘line’. Thanks.

Hi AJ,

Is there a way for me have the menu, remain open, when someone is looking at a gallery. BU default, I would like the menu to always be open, not just the plus sign

For example: http://www.allenkielyphotography.com/gallery/weddings/

Thanks Allen

WPExplorer

Hi Allen,

This option was added in version 1.2 – http://www.wpexplorer.com/changelogs/photopro/ – if you look at the live demo you’ll notice by default now it doesn’t hide the sidebar.

Default-user

I’ve just installed version 1.32 and the menu is still hidden, when displaying a gallery.

How do I set it to stay open on Gallery page

WPExplorer

The option is in the theme panel under the Galleries tab “Enable Sidebar on Galleries”.

Hi AJ!

First of: very nice theme! Surely worth the few bucks ;)

Quick question: I have a little mid-page at www.corsei.com/youth where you can choose between the three categories. Now I just want to have the three images + caption displayed inline horizontally. I scanned through style.css and a little bit in the discussions here, but couldn’t find anything on that subject. Sorry if it’s been addressed already!

Hope you can give me a quick hint :)

Thank!

It’s been over a week and no reply … in the meantime I solved the problem, but I was just wondering: is this issue included in the kind of troubleshooting you don’t support? Just curious (since you replied to Jeja007 who posted after me).

In other news: I watched your (outdated) video-tutorial on youtube and I created a gallery I wanted displayed on the homepage. I changed the homepage’s templated to Ā»HomepageĀ«, but nothing is shown.

Any idea what the problem might be? Tell me if you need more details.

Thanks!

I must have completely missed your original comment, sorry about that!

The correct video for displaying a single gallery on the homepage would be this one – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4fMBFN5i7U – if you did this and can’t see any items on the homepage, then the only explanation is that you didn’t actually add any images to the gallery.

It’s a bit hard to know though why it wouldn’t work without actually looking at the back end.

Hi, I was trying to do this, but I can’t: “Pretty easy. You can hide via CSS using display: none; or you can delete the code in single-galleries.php lines 30-111 – its commented out so should be easy to distinguish.” When I delete all lines from 30 to 111, whole website gets messed up.

Thank you for your answer. J
