Hello First of all really like the theme however i am having some serious problems at the moment which i cant quite figure out.

I’ve gone through your documentation but i still cant find my answers so:

1. In this demo http://www.wpexplorer.me/premium/photopro/gallery-category/photoshopped/ you show tags at the bottom that show images that relate to them. However in the documentation there is no guide on how to add these tags or add the tags to the sidebar.

2. When i click on a full gallery the sidebar disappears which i know is normal however there is no button in the top left to bring the sidebar back (if possible i would prefer the sidebar to never disappear) [EDIT: Found the button it is hidden by the Wordpress Admin Bar]

Basically i want the gallery’s to operate in the same way that the tags do in the demo so when a gallery link is selected a slider gallery appears with the sidebar still in the same place as it was before.

Also is there any other way of adding gallery links to the menu than me copying the link of the gallery itself and turning it into a link

Hope that makes sense =]

WPExplorer

Please see my comments below.

EDIT . Juts released my answer was in the FAQ I ’ve entered the following CSS and now all my problems are gone =]

.single-galleries #content-left { left: 0 !important; } #left_content_toggle { display: none !important; } .single-galleries #content-right { padding-left: 245px; } #gallery-toggle-bar { display: none; }

Would still be handy if you should highlight my tag and links question if that ok =]

WPExplorer

Yes changing the CSS works, also you might want to edit the actually image cropping size under functions/img_defaults.php or via a custom function.

You mean so that the images in the scroller adjust depending on your window height? – This is pretty tricky and would require some JS overhaul.

If you look in js/non_mobile_init.js line 168 “wpexGallerySliderMaxHeight” function you can see how I’ve set the inner flexslider to have a max size that matches the window height. Maybe it can inspire you to do the same for the scroller…However, the scroller is going to be pretty tricky because of the way it works.

Hope some of that helps you ;)

That’s brilliant thanks its actually not as bad as i thought it would be. I applied the same JS code to the following:

(hash)makeMeScrollable & .scroller-entry img

The only problem this caused is the border which when i applied the same rule to changed everything so for now i’ve changed the display state of the border to none so i can come back to it later =]

Thanks for the tip =]

Sweet – Nice to see a customer who knows what they are doing ;)

Want to buy this but would like background music. Possible?

WPExplorer

Might be possible via a plugin. The main reason I didn’t add any music is because the theme isn’t AJAXED , so when you switch pages it will re-start your music.

I am pretty much sold on this theme, about to buy it.. but I am also a photographer and have the same concerns some others did, and not sure if it had been fully addressed yet in the theme, so just wanted to ask..

I myself, like others have asked in here, would like the homepage of this theme to have “featured” images that you can click on and bring up the lightbox of that photo… rather than pictures from each gallery linking to the gallery they are in. I would just prefer to have my best images on the main page, with links to my work of the different categorized galleries in the sidebar.

is this a difficult task to do?

WPExplorer

Maybe 1 day at the most for any updated themes to get reviewed and accepted.

I hear you and it’s definitely a feature I want to add to the theme. Basically all I would do is create a page template “Home – Featured Images”, then any image you upload to that page will just automatically show up on the homepage.

I am working to release a theme right now and send out a newsletter, but it’s something I could definitely work on right after and have it done by tonight.

I think I am one of the few Elite authors that still see the benefits of providing my own support and not hiring people to do it for me. No one knows my themes/customers better then I do ;)

-AJ

one other question.. how difficult is it to add a custom or “not common” font to the sidebar area where the links would be?

WPExplorer

You could do so pretty easily using Google web fonts and a little CSS :

http://www.google.com/webfonts

Would you guys install the theme or customize it for a fee?

WPExplorer

I haven’t added any support for videos. The only possibility is to customize the gallery styles or insert videos into pages or the “plain” gallery style in the post content.

There are added styles for forms. You could use a plugin like “Contact Form 7” to easily add a contact form to the page.

-AJ

Default-user

so i can or i cant choose an image to be the background? Also can i change the background color?

WPExplorer

The background would need to be changed via CSS . It’s a little tricky, because of the mobile version (the sidebar must be positioned differently) so if you notice in the mobile versions, the body background is actually set as an image repeating vertically and the HTML background is a solid color.

Do to this complexity there is no option in the theme panel and it should be done via custom CSS .

I am interested in your template.

I would like to make the background color completely white. Is it possible to add “White” at Skins.

Thanks

WPExplorer

You can make the body background white (while using the default light skin) by adding the following CSS to the bottom of your style.css file or in the theme’s custom CSS option field.

html, #wrap{ background: #fff; }

Hi there! Just purchased your theme and loving it so far. I was wondering if there was a way to make the menu bar always visible instead of having it hide? Thank you!

Default-user

Wonderful, perfect! Also, I am sorry but I am a major rookie with Wordpress. Where in the code do I put the css?

WPExplorer

Bottom of style.css or in the theme panel styling tab there is a custom css field.

Default-user

Magic, thank you!

Hello,

Very good theme indeed. easy to use, nice and clean.

I really like that pictures are in one line even with numerous size of pictures and I dont have much care if they are all 15×10cm etc. At least up to today. I adjusted pictures to lower resolution so the web is faster and now pictures in gallery (scroller) are not in 1 line. This means one is higher. Could this be cause becuase I change image and becuase they are small your script does not fit them to gallery as the other pictures? Tis happens only for size adjusted pictures with small resolution. Otherwise it works fine. You can check on www.jacobphoto.cz first and thrid puicture for example shows my problem.

thank you Jacob

WPExplorer

Really glad you like the theme Jacob!

Basically the issue is the slider height is 600px and those images are smaller then the slider height.

Basically to adjust the resolution you’ve actually decreased your images in size. What you can do is either re-save your images at a lower resolution but keep them at least 600pixels tall.

Or you can add custom CSS (bottom of style.css) like this, that should make them stretch out.

.scroller-entry-img img{ min-height: 600px; }

I would suggest uploading images a bit bigger though so you don’t sacrifice so much quality.

Hey AJ,

Do you have a sample of how the password protected gallery works? I’ve tried selecting the option to turn a gallery into password protected but nothing’s changed.

Cheers

WPExplorer

I mentioned to someone earlier that this function isn’t setup on this theme. Because of how WP works it would require some big changes to the way the theme works. The only way to password protect a gallery atm is to use the “plain” gallery style which is basically a post:

http://www.wpexplorer.me/premium/photopro/gallery/runway-behind-the-scenes/

I have plans of possibly providing this function to all galleries in the future, just don’t have the time at the moment to do this massive update.

Default-user

No worries AJ, I don’t have any use for this feature right now, I was just wondering. Thanks for the awesome theme and support!

Hi AJ,

i have buy the theme and now i have seen that i had about by Gallerys, 1.how i can turn it off. i dont need it, i want that persons dont can download my pics? 2.and how i turn off the right click on the side.

thx

WPExplorer

Not sure what you want to “turn off”.

To disable right click you could use a plugin like:

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/no-right-click-images-plugin/

-AJ

Default-user

i dont want that the buttons about and gallery were showed in the gallery page,

WPExplorer

This is very easy to remove. You can edit single-galleries.php and remove lines 26-113.

If you aren’t comfortable doing that. Open a ticket at wpthemehelp.com and I will send you a customized file for you ;)

Hello,

I have general questions about this template.

1. Can we change the font and its size at the category easily?

2. Can we organize the whole thumbnail hover(for instance, changing 5 images or more per line)?

2. What is the largest size of photo images we can update?

Please let me know. Thanks.

WPExplorer

1. Yes, if you know basic CSS .

2. Not sure what you mean by “thumbnail hover” – does the video answer your question? http://www.screenr.com/Rpj8

3. You can upload images as large as you want. If an image is too big it will be re-sized to fit the layout of the theme.

Is there anyway to make the pictures scroll like http://www.zara.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/home/us/en ?

WPExplorer

Technically speaking…yes. But it’s going to requite A LOT of customization. You’ll have to set things up to use FlexSlider (which is the slider plugin already in the theme used on the flexslider gallery type) and set it to be in full-screen mode and edit the code to have it slide vertically.

It’s a cool style, definitely something I would consider for a future theme ;)

Hi,

I just bought your PhotoPro theme. I tried three times to install it into the wp content>theme folder in my hosting directory. Although it goes in successfully, and all contents are visible, the wordpress dashboard insists that the style sheet is missing.

I know for a fact that it isn’t, and I can see the style.css file.

DO you have a solution for this?

WPExplorer

Thank you for the purchase. Sounds like you aren’t uploading the root theme folder: http://www.wpthemehelp.com/knowledgebase/stylesheet-is-missing-error-fix/

If you aren’t sure how to extract the files and everything you can contact me via my profile page and I’ll send you just the theme zip.

If you are going to be working with WordPress though, I really suggest you get familiar with using FTP for installing themes, this normally helps zero out any issues ;)

-AJ

AJ,

We downloaded the theme and tried uploading through the FTP earlier today using FileZilla. It said the CSS was missing but it was in the downloaded file. Let me know what you think.

Also can we please do this through e-mail so I don’t have to come to the forum every time?

Rod

WPExplorer

Hey Rod, this still sounds like it’s not being uploaded correctly, it’s really the only explanation I can think of.

You can always open a ticket at wpthemehelp.com or contact me via my profile page – I much prefer that as well if you read my profile info.

-AJ

I would like to buy this theme but have a question beforehand. For now I would like to only display one gallery. I’d like it to be displayed in masonry style on the homepage, so every image from that gallery would be shown on the homepage. When clicking on an image I’d like to jump into the scroller view. Is that possible? And furthermore, is there any way that I can jump to the correct image in the scroller view when I click on a specific image on the homepage? Thanks in advance for answering my questions.

Thanks AJ, the menu thing worked. I did create a ticket at http://www.wpthemehelp.com/tickets/photopro-theme/. If you could send me an updated Home template that would be much appreciated!

And I have one more question. I made CSS changes to also show the sidebar on single galleries. The only thing I would like to change here is re-position the scrollingHotSpotLeft so that the left arrow is shown not underneath the sidebar but in the same position that it is shown on the homepage. Could you please let me know which CSS section I need to edit for that? Thanks so much!

WPExplorer

You’ll just need to add padding to the “content-left” div which is removed for single gallery posts.

Hello,

Is there a way to change the base url of a image in the gallery? I dont want the image in the gallery link to the other images but instead to a product (woocommerce) Example: .../onshus1/gallery/12-onderzetter/ product image

Chanche to: ..../onshus1/over-onshus/12-onderzetter/ product page

Thanks in advance for answering my questions

WPExplorer

Not quite sure what you are trying to do. Do you mean on the actual posts so instead of the lightbox it goes to a custom URL ? Or on the homepage where instead of going to the gallery it goes to a product page?

Both would require you to customize your template files – but the way of doing it would be very different. The former would be best with a custom-field while the latter would be best using the attachment description field.

Thanks for the purchase Brian,

-AJ

AJ, Thanks for your fast reply. What i ment was :

on the homepage where instead of going to the gallery it goes to a product page.

Could you tell me what i need to write in the attachment description field?

Thanks, Brian

WPExplorer

Oh gotcha…. You have a few options.

1. Easiest – use a 301 redirection to redirect your gallery posts to another page.

2. If you are using an Ecommerce plugin like WooCommerce you can edit the homepage template to loop through your products instead of your galleries (ideal). Change templates/template-home.php line 32.

this:

'post_type' => array( 'galleries' ),

to this:

'post_type' => array( 'product' ),

This will make the loop, loop through your products.

3. Use custom fields and edit your the files (includes/loop-galleries and includes/loop-galleries-masonry.php) to check for the custom field which you would use for the url and if one exists echo that rather then the permalink.

AJ,

I would like to link the images in the gallery (homepage)to a product page. U can view the gallery on http://www.blynders.com/onshus1

For example the image XL letters links to: http://www.blynders.com/onshus1/gallery/xl-letters/ But i would like linking it to: http://www.blynders.com/onshus1/over-onshus/letters-xl/

Could u help me with this? Thanks in regards

Brian

By the way, the site is looking very pretty – like the changes you’ve made ;)

Default-user

Super AJ, Thanks a lot for helping me out

WPExplorer

People don’t realize the power of using custom post types ;)

Would love to see your site when finished! I’m setting up a showcase website soon – wpimpressive.com – and we’d love to add yours.

-AJ

I bought the theme, but i see it is not full responsive. When i look at the homepage the scroller is not responsive.

I hope you can manage this soon.

PdV

WPExplorer

The theme isn’t “responsive” as mentioned in the description. The theme is “mobile ready”. This means that when you resize the browser the elements will remain with the same widths, but when you visit on a mobile device the layout will be different.

There shouldn’t be any issues though with the carousel when you resize the browser though…since it is full screen. Are you seeing any issues?

Thank you for the purchase!

Hi,

how can I setup a gallery using the flexslider style. The option doesn’t appear in Gallery settings box.

Thanks!

Hi, but in my case “default” style is the same as scroller. :(

I want my gallery shows like here: http://www.wpexplorer.me/premium/photopro/gallery/faces/
WPExplorer

The default should give you that style:
