Hello! I recently purchased your theme and I really like it, nice work!

But I have a question: How can I manually change the featured images sequence on the homepage?

Thank you very much :)

WPExplorer

Hi there,

Glad you like the theme, thanks for the purchase!

The homepage shows your galleries by order in which they are published, have a look at the following post to see how you can change their order.

Thank you! :)

sure thing!

Hi! I recently bought PhotoPro, it is great, thanks for it! I would like to ask a few questions hoping you could help me out: 1. I followed your instructions given to another customer on how to deactivate the automatic scrolling of the scroller page, however, when I do that, I can’t scroll through the images using the trackpad or the mouse’s scroller, only by clicking on the arrows of the page, would that be possible? 2. When using the scroller template for galleries, is there a way to deactivate the half-opaque frame that appears on the photo when dragging the mouse over it? 3. How could I decrease/increase the spacing between the menu items, can you just point me to the lines in the css? 4. When hovering the mouse on menu items, can the menu text appear in red color, not only when already clicked? And can the menu items be black instead of dark grey? Thanks in advance!

WPExplorer

Yes, have a look at taxonomy-gallery_cats.php line 29.

Done! 5 star service, 5 star rating!

hey, great theme! ... I am setting it up currently. one question I came across and couldn´t find in the documentation: if I set a gallery on “scroller”, i.e. in the sliding-presentation mode, is there any way to retain the image title or description, so it can be seen somehow to the visitor; either by default or in interaction with the gallery? (otherwise this would be a serious drawback of this kind of gallery, which is otherwise so nice/practical)

thanks for help already + best regards! oliver

WPExplorer

Hi Oliver,

If you look at the flexslider version you can see that one shows the image title at the top. You can copy the code in there to paste into the scroller style.

You’ll find all the gallery files in the includes folder.

The code to show an image title would be like this:

<?php echo $wpex_gallery_single_attachment->post_title; ?>

It would be really easy to add to the gallery. My suggestion would be to actually add it inside a div positioned absolutely over the image like an overlay on the bottom or something.

Would like to see what you come up with ;) I personally prefer the clean look with just the photos.

Thanks for the purchase!

hey WPEx, thanks – that was prompt! ... and helpful!

I agree there is an aesthetics/style question here. personally I would prefer if there is a “mouseover” or other interactive title, whenever the “scroller” doesn´t… scroll. because like you I see the point in having a clean look, and avoiding sliding titles! ... but then if you give people an exhibition (or set) they eventually want/need to know what they are seeing. as there is already this fantastic option to stop/interact the sliding scroller presentation, that – in an ideal world – would be where image-infos come in/make sense… – but this already helps a lot; i will test & tinker; and post what I come up with (depending whether I find a pleasing solution… ;-) !

thanks again. that quick help is appreciated! oliver

Hey, it’s me again. Stupid question, but is better if i ask. It supports videos? It is possible to upload a video gallery? Thanks

Nicole

WPExplorer

Please have a look at the video overviews on the theme page description.

I’m using core WP functions for the images (because its better) but unfortunately WP doesn’t have a method to store non-selfhosted videos as part of the media library.

You could only add videos if you use the “Plain” gallery format and insert the video into the post editor.

nicolecurioni

sorry my english is not that good…. can i insert videos like from vimeo or youtume?? like iframes? Sorry…

WPExplorer

Only in the “Plain” gallery post (watch the video on the theme page) and in blog posts. The scroller, flexslider, masonry galleries don’t support it.

Pre purchase question. I think this is the kind of image grid I’ve been looking for.

What I want to accomplish is something similar to this site. http://simplicityphotography.com/blog/

A WP blog with images in masonry style for each post. Is this something I can do with this plugin?

Thanks

Hi Sarah,

Based on what you showed me I’m not quite sure its a fit for you. Of course I would like the sale, but I’m a nice guy ;) Have you checked out the titled gallery by Jetpack?

http://jetpack.me/2013/01/04/galleries/

That might be exactly what you need and should work with almost any theme.

Lovely theme. Quick pre purchase question (apologies if this has been answered—I read through the comments and didn’t see it)

Can the “read more” function on the blog be disabled so that the full post shows instead?

WPExplorer

By default the blog shows the excerpt, its possible to do what you ask but you’d have to edit 1 file to remove the excerpt function and change for the_content function & delete the read more link.

This is a very simple edit I could for sure help you with on the support site.

Cara wanted to buy your theme, but I need to know, I can click on the image to go home for a post? and the menu never hide?

WPExplorer
  • I don’t understand the first question…you mean the logo?
  • Always visible sidebar will take some customization. I’ve provided a starter guide for this in the FAQ section of this page.
mudepublicidade

effects of the photos link can go to a page instead of a gallery?

WPExplorer

You can remove the ajax functionality and link directly to the gallery if you wish. Simply will require removing the ajax file call (i line in scripts.php).

This is what a single gallery would look like:

http://www.wpexplorer.me/premium/photojax/galleries/travels/

Of course you can also cut out the gallery function if you just want simple posts.

An awesome feature in the future would be to allow lazy loading of images in the slider. The more images a client puts in a gallery the longer it takes for the slider to load all of those images. Somehow if it would show the slider after maybe the first 5 or so images loaded, then the other images could load afterwards. At least the option would be nice.

WPExplorer

I’m actually using a pretty complex scrolling plugin for this theme’s scroller… http://www.smoothdivscroll.com/ .. I’m not sure how to do the lazy load, but I’ll look into it.

My new PhotoJax theme does have lazy load in the slider ;)

Thanks for the info!

WPExplorer

Sure thing ;)

Two more pre-purchase questions:

1. I’m assuming the logo is sizable? (to accommodate a logo that’s higher than it is wide?)

2. How difficult would it be to create a blank top menu item with drop down options? (For example, a menu item that says, “Weddings” that doesn’t link to anything but has drop down options that say things like “Bob and Sally” , etc.?

Apologies if these have been asked before… perhaps I missed it in prior comments.

Faith

WPExplorer

Well basically on any site you can just use a # symbol for the URL so it won’t link anywhere.

But this theme has no toggle/drop-down style menus as you can see from the demo. So this will need to be added either manually of via a plugin.

Default-user

Thanks! I didn’t know the # trick. MUCH appreciated!

Not sure if this was covered yet but is there a way to fix/lock the left hand navigation instead of having to open / drop it down from the TLHC?

WPExplorer

There isn’t a built-in option for this. But if you look at the FAQ for this page I’ve showed you some basic CSS to help anyone looking to customize that.

Hi! Love the theme but as I recently changed my ‘home’ page and now the order of the pictures is not the same as showing in the wordpress ‘page’. Can you help me get the correct order?

WPExplorer

In what way did you change it?

I will need a bit more information to help you out. If you want to open a ticket at wpthemehelp.com that would be best.

If you provide me with a url and logins we can resolve this much quicker!

Great theme! I’m looking to keep things very simple- just 1 scrolling gallery on the homepage. I would like it if the images were NOT link-able to anything further.

Am I overlooking an easy solution to this?

Default-user
covinoe Purchased

I knew it would be easy! I have one more quick question, couldn’t find it answered anywhere else. Is there a quick way to speed up the auto scroller? Thank you!

WPExplorer

You’ll have to edit js/scroll_init.js and add a new parameter “autoScrollingStep” but making it faster can also make it seem less “smooth”. Have a look on the jQuery plugin site for all available options – http://www.smoothdivscroll.com/options.html

Hi there, really happy with the theme. You did a great job and I especially appreciate your documentation within the code to make editing a lot easier. I would recommend to anyone considering this theme to go for it.

Anyway two questions:

1. How can I add a custom.js file to the theme?

2. I was trying to write jQuery in Chrome’s console (just to test out some ideas), but the ”$” is read as undefined, despite the fact that I can see jQuery 1.8.3 loading in the scripts section. Do you have any insight into this problem?

WPExplorer

Glad you like it! Thanks for the kind words ;)

1. To load scripts in WordPress you actually use the enqueue script function – see how I do so in functions/scripts.php line 52. You can duplicate this line and edit it for your needs and then literally paste it wherever you need js loaded. Example if you are loading custom js on your homepage you can paste the function in templates/homepage.php.

2. When working with WordPress you should write your jQuery in non-conflict mode. Example:

jQuery(function($){
   $(document).ready(function(){
       /* YOUR CUSTOM JS */
   });
}); 

Hope that helps!

perfect. thanks a lot

Hi there, I’m hoping there’s a way to change the background of the sidebar to a texture by using a background image. I would like to have a vertically repeating image along the sidebar and the main page background to remain white, but with the settings I have I can only apply the texture to the content background. Any help is much appreciated.. Thanks!

WPExplorer

There doesn’t appear to be any image named background4.jpg in the root directory of your theme which is what you are trying to do in your CSS. Edit url(background4.jpg) to point to where your image is located.

Not sure about the menu question…If you are creating multiple galleries make sure to do it using the built-in gallery categories.

Default-user

Thanks so much for all of your help, I just noticed the built in gallery categories, but how do I include them in my custom menu like you’ve done in your setup video? And how do I create tiered menu items like in the example? Thanks

WPExplorer

You can either use the custom URL option in the menu builder to link to your categories. But there should also be a little module for them on the left of the menu dashboard. If you don’t see it you click on “Screen Options” tab on the top right and make sure the checkbox next to it is selected.

To create tiered menu items you simple click a menu item while in the menu dashboard and drag it under the menu item you want to be a parent.

I purchased this theme yesterday, everything works fine except the “single gallery” homepage. I created a page for the homepage choosing the single gallery theme. I uploaded on this pages some photos but the page is still ‘blank’.. nothing happens. I’m using WP 3.5.. Help! Thanks

WPExplorer

Yes, this is correct. The Meta gallery is setup for main galleries only, since the Single Homepage Template was introduced later on.

There is really nothing to it…Here, I just made this quick video so you can see how simply it should be:

Now it works!!!! I deleted the previous page and I create a new page and now the slider works :D Thank you very much. Maybe the problem was because I modified directly the ‘sample’ page I found by default.. but creating a new page everything is ok!

Who cares why it didn’t work ;) Glad its all working now! Hope you enjoy the theme 8-)

I’ve bought this theme now, but when I enter a gallery I can’t upload photos (I don’t have the box, I only can edit the page with the text editor). You can see an image from here: http://sr.munera.co/theme.jpg

Thanks

WPExplorer

You can upload your photos using “Afegeix un media”. Or you can download and install the “Gallery Metabox Plugin” to have the available function like the demo.

Thanks for the purchase!

I just purchased and am going through setting up my site and t=have the same problem as ‘Helsrike’ I have set the home page to “single gallery” added a load of images and it’s just not showing anything??

I do have another quick question. I will only have 2 or 3 galleries and view these in masonry. Is the any way to stop the pop up gallery nav at the bottom looking so empty? it only has the thumbnail for my other gallery so looks incomplete?? or hide it completely

WPExplorer

you can hide it with CSS usign “display:none;” but best is to remove manually – open single-gallery.php and delete lines 77-113 – under the title “Pop-Up More Gallery Browser Window”.

can’t get this to work, is that definitely the correct lines, I get an opacity box over the gallery. BTW I’d still like to keep the about box, is that possible?

Back again! This time, trying to figure out how to keep the Copyright section from overlapping the sidebar widgets on smaller screens. One of the site visitors is viewing the site on a 13” netbook and the copyright section overlaps some of the galleries.

I noticed that the copyright section is set as position fixed to the bottom of the page which seems to be causing the overlap. If I change it to position relative, it keeps spacing away from the galleries widget but on larger screens it won’t stick to the bottom.

Any suggestions?

Oh ya you could do that as well ;)

Everything you add inside the media query should apply.

Hi, is there a way to make a masonry gallery be more than 3 columns? I notice on the live preview of the theme the masonry homepage is 5 columns and it reflows as you resize the browser, it’s be really nice if the galleries did this too.

cheers jamie

WPExplorer

Hi Jamie,

There was a reason why I did it this way, but can’t quite remember anymore why it was ;)

You can expand that area with the following custom CSS:

.single-masonry{ width: 100%; padding-right: 30px; -moz-box-sizing: border-box; box-sizing-box-sizing: border-box; }

Hi, I just recently purchase your theme and I really love it. I have a question. Is there a way I can turn off the Auto Hide function of the sidebar? And remove the “Gallery” or “Info” box inside the gallery? And also where do I edit the Copyright section? can’t find it inside.. and one last thing. I need to show a certain gallery on my homepage such as BOOK I, BOOK II.. is there a way I can show them in the homepage without being “set”. I know you said in the documentation that we can, but can’t find the UPLOAD THIS IMAGE TO THIS POST thingy.

THANKS!!!
