Hello,

I would like to translate the world ‘All’ as well but there are a lot of ‘All’s in de index.php file. Wich one do I have to change? I would like to change ‘LOAD MORE IMAGES’ as well. Where can i find that? Hope you can help me.

Regards, Adriaan

David_Blanco
Hello, I may add an option to translate this later but for now first open the reader.php file and find this:
'All'
Then replace it for something else, for example:
'SomethingElse'
And for the LOAD MORE IMAGES button open the autoGrid.min.js file (inside the JS folder) and find this:
LOAD MORE IMAGES
and replace it for something else as well, only replace the words, nothing else.
I hope this make sense ;) Kind Regards

Hi David,

Nice work! Could you tell me the best way to disable any linking at all? I just want to create a small profile pic wall with out anything being clickable at all. I have resized about 400 photos and I’m doing 9 columns, this loads fast and the random wall effect is achieved perfectly.

However, even with lightbox disabled, on hover over image, mouse changes states to finger – like image can be clicked – and it has a weird feel since clicking does nothing. So I just want to disable any link at all and kill that hover state change.

We can figure it out, but thought you might have the best shortest path.

Thanks!

David_Blanco
Hello,
Well the fastest way is to add this peace of CSS:
.gbox{
  cursor: auto !important;
}

added to gridGallery.css and main style sheet of theme and no effect? Cursor still changes state on hover over any image.

David_Blanco

hmm, can you share the link to your site where the gallery is so I can inspect it?

Hi – Just before I purchase, is it possible to add the Title over the thumbnail image, before Mouseover in some way? i.e. so the title is always visible.

David_Blanco

Well with the plugin as it is no, you would have to tweak the JS and CSS in order to do something like that

Is there a way to transform the LOAD MORE IMAGES into this arrow? When you click on that arrow, you could go to another page with more images….

David_Blanco

Well you can put the arrow as a link to another page and then set the images to load at the beginning to the maximum so you don’t see the load more button, but the arrow is not part of the plugin that would be a custom tweak in your end

Hi, just a couple of quick pre-sale questions if that’s okay:

1. Would I be able to click on an image and link to a page on my website? Ie. click on a photo of a calendar, the calendar page opens.

2. If so for the above question, is it also possible with touch screen devices?

Thanks for your time either way!

David_Blanco

Yes you can see this: http://www.davidbo.dreamhosters.com/files/documentation/index.html#Link
See the “Link to Another Page” section,
Best Regards.

Default-user

Great stuff. Is it possible to have more than one gallery per website?

David_Blanco
Yes you can, but with the same settings just with images from a different directory see this: http://www.davidbo.dreamhosters.com/files/documentation/index.html#CodeYouNeed
You only specify a different directory in the shortcode:
[autoGrid directory="gallery2"]

Hi David,

will captions/image descriptions also appear in responsive mode?

Thank You in advance!

David_Blanco

Hi,
Yes they do appear, just reduce the width of your browser (like a mobile resolution) and you will see how it looks in mobile.
Best Regards!

Default-user

Hi David,

thank you for the quick response! I did reduce the browser window, but I did not see the title when it is lower than 450px – is that possible?

David_Blanco

Ohhh, you are talking about the lightbox? (the full screen mode) if so then that is correct there’s no title since the buttons wouldn’t fit correctly because there’s no much space

Default-user

Hi David,

thank you for the reply. Would it be possible to display the title below the bar/above the buttons? On desktop, when reducing the window I notice the images are centered on the page (which is great!) and it seems there is space above; unless that space is not visible on mobile?

David_Blanco

Well the space depends on the resolution of the device and the dimensions of the image, it may not be that way always, you would have to tweak the JS section and some CSS in order to achieve it

Default-user

Hi David,

I understand, and I will keep this in mind – thank you!

Since wp update, your plugin don’t work, have you got an update ?

David_Blanco

Hi, the live preview of the plugin is using the most recent version of WP (it automatically updates) it has version 3.9.1, and I don’t see any issue at all, can you explain what is the problem in your end? did you upgrade something else?

Default-user

Strange, as you can see : http://goo.gl/jGUgx4

David_Blanco

hmm this is weird, it does load images but it leaves the loader running, instead of showing the “load more” text, any chance you could give me access to the wp admin page so I can inspect the plugin? since I can’t reproduce that issue :s you can contact me through email (in my profile at the bottom there’s a contact form)

HI:

There is a plug-Traditional Chinese language support (Chinese Traditional language folder and file names).

If there is, I want to buy.

David_Blanco

Hi, well that depends on your hosting, some customers had some issues with special characters, but on my hosting (dreamhost) I don’t have any problem, I can read files with chinese, and all kind of special character, such as accents, etc. I have a demo that you can test so you know if it is going to work in your hosting

Hi there,

Just purchased this theme and it does not have a gallery page. Was curious if your plugin would work with it? http://themeforest.net/item/uberstore-nextlevel-multipurpose-theme/7009376?ref=fuelthemes Let me know and great work.

Cheers, Patrick

David_Blanco

Well I don’t have access to that theme since it is from a different author, but this plugin should work on any theme

Hi

Have just purchased this awesome plugin My question is can I have different settings for different galleries? Sometimes I want to show captions, and sometimes not. I know that on the options page you can specify a gallery at the top, but how can I specify more than one with different settings? With thanks in anticipation

PS May change top slider to yours too!

Supplementary question: Is there any way to find out for sure that the thumbnail folder is being used for the thumbnails and not the original (large) files?

David_Blanco

Hello,
Unfortunately you can’t have different settings for the time being, but I’ll try to add it for the next update (don’t know when yet)
You can use “inspect element” form google chrome developer tools, something like this: https://cdn.tutsplus.com/webdesign/uploads/legacy/tuts/370_dev_tools/images/2-inspect-element.png
You can find videos on how to inspect a page and see the source HTML so you can see the path of the images

Hydester

Hi David

Many thanks for your quick reply! Shame about the lack of dual settings – I look forward to an update Regarding the thumbs, my arrangement doesn’t seem to pick up from the thumbnail: http://www.ukphotography.co.uk/Thumb.png http://www.ukphotography.co.uk/Folders.png

Any thoughts?

do they have the same exact name? (event uper case and lower case letters)

Hello,

Purchased a while ago. Great support. Have you noticed any problems on WP 3.9.1? After I updated it seems to not be working. Trying to figure out what has gone wrong.

Thanks!

You can compare this which is not working: http://camarie-photography.com/ on 3.9.1 vs this http://losangeles.camarie-photography.com/

Same template and files just a different wp version.

It looks like Autogrid is causing issues with the menu bar drop down and is also causing another plugin to fail.

Hi,

I upgraded to the latest version and this is what I get in FIREFOX:

localhost/wordpress/\wp-content/gallery\wellness/Wellness5.jpg

OF course that does not work.

It works 100% in IE and Chrome.

Regards,

Gary

David_Blanco

Hello,
I downloaded again the latest version here in CodeCanyon and tested locally on my server and I couldn’t find any issue on Firefox, is this happening until you add your own images and gallery? can you test the Gallery that comes by default with the plugin, here is a screen shot of what I see locally on my WP: https://www.dropbox.com/s/kpf3pl46h8n3xrq/Screen%20Shot%202014-06-02%20at%208.30.35%20AM.png

Hi,

This is a NEXTGEN gallery.

All Nextgen galleries exhibit this behavior.

David_Blanco

Hi, I’m not sure I understand, is the problem with the auto grid responsive gallery? or the nextgen gallery? any chance you can show me a living example?

Default-user

Hi,

I am pushing an update to the review site.

Will send you details when it is setup.

alright ;)

Hi,

OMG so sorry, posted this in the wrong plugin.

Hi, I would like to link to another page BUT in the same window, is that possible? the link information in the documentation, works as opening in a new window.

Thanks in advance Mette

David_Blanco

Hello,
open the autoGrid.js file (in the root folder of the plugin) and find this:

linkOnSamePage: false,

then replace it for this:
linkOnSamePage: true,
I hope this make sense ;)

Hi David,

I’m trying to create different grids on different pages. For example, eight images of the same dimensions on Page A without caption effects AND then on Page B a masonry layout with it’s own unique settings that are different from Page A.

I see people asking about ‘unique galleries on multiple pages’. I thought this was possible but when I change the settings for /gallery2 it also changes the settings I had made for /gallery. I know this is a default panel but I found it very disappointing that I couldn’t create unique galleries with their own unique settings. Am I missing something? Thx

David_Blanco

Hi, currently custom settings for an specific gallery is not possible (only specify different folder) but is one of the features I will add as a future update

Hi

Thanks for the awesome plugin! I have a client who is really not happy about the ALL button http://designshowcase.co.za/direkshinz/kitchen-and-dining/ They want the galleries just to be the “subcategories” without the ALL button

Can you please help?

David_Blanco

Hello,
Unfortunately there’s no current option to disable the All button, it would require some extra logic to choose a default category and hide the All option.
I’ll try to include it as a future update though ;)

Default-user
danelk Purchased

Is there any way i could pay you to custom code it for me – my clients are VERY set on this. If not – is there anyways we can make it default to a sub category instead of the all button?

David_Blanco

Hmm if is really necessary I guess I can do a custom job for you, contact me via email here: http://codecanyon.net/user/David_Blanco#message

Is it possible to have the plugin set the “Directory of the Folder” in relation to the root of the site instead relative to a directory inside the plugin’s directory? I know I can point to directories outside the plugin’s directory (using ”../”), but considering my galleries are in a directory off the root of my site, that gets very ugly and unwieldy very fast. I think right now it looks like this: ../../../../../NewPorts/

David_Blanco

Hello, currently the only way is as you mention a relative path from the plugins folder (i.e. ../.././gallery) otherwise you would have to edit the code in order to change and see if absolute path can work

Default-user
dmholman Purchased

I think I might try that. Right now, having a shortcode of [autoGrid directory=”../../../../NewPorts/...”] on every page is just too much. Especially since once I move to publish the site, the relative plugin directory will change and I’ll need to go back and change all those again.

I’m loathe to make a change in the code like this since any update you do could kill it and I have to make it over again afterwards. Any chance that’s an option you can put into an update sometime? Thanks David.

David_Blanco

Hello, alright I inspected the code again and found out that the path must be relative to the reader.php file (which is on the plugins folder) so this may not be possible, but I’ll try to see if I can find a way around
