Discussion on CCGallery WP - Multimedia Gallery Wordpress Plugin

I purchased your plugin recently and have it set up on a website in progress summit.bluelakewebsites.org. The page it’s on is called “media.” For the most part, it is working beautifully, but we have a fully responsive site and the plugin isn’t doing well when it’s sized down to the phone size. It’s cropping the images in an undesirable way. (I made all my images proportional so this wouldn’t happen, but it still does.) Please assist. If there were a way to disable the covershow and just use thumbnails only on mobile, I would do so, but I’d rather just fix the weirdness that’s going on with the cropping.

Thanks for purchasing!

I checked the gallery in your page and what is happening there in small screen sizes is expected. The gallery does not resize the images as the screen size changes, only the viewable area decreases. You are using quite large thumbnails in the coverflow which are much wider than a mobile phone screen, so naturally in phone screens there will be cropping. The only way out is to decrease the size of your images and make them have a width that fits in a phone screen.

Thank you for your quick response. Given the issue, I have an easy work around for it. The client wants the images this large on desktop, so I’ll just create another gallery with the exact same images for a mobile page and set the thumbnail smaller for that gallery. Perhaps a feature request for the future if others run into this same issue is to add an option to duplicate the gallery.

Hi there – I have purchased your plugin – love your work

I am however experiencing one issue. I’m trying to get this to work localised on Wordpress using XAMPP – I can’t seem to upload images – it is saying upload failed: http://localhost/websitename/wp-content/uploads/ccgallery-upload/undefined ...where undefined should be the file name.

I have set read and write permissions on the ccgallery-upload folder but it still doesn’t work.

Any ideas? – many thanks Al

Ok – I have tried exactly the same setup on a PC and it works fine – it must be a configuration setting?

cosmocoder

Strange issue! I have tried the upload in both a PC and a Mac. My best guess is that some php settings are not right. See the documentation for the recommended php settings.

Hi cosmocoder – i have bought the plugin and I’m happy with it.

Can i create my own category button? I’ve tried to copy the source code but it doesn’t seem to be working?

a class=”navbuttons” data-category=”category-name”

Any help would be appreciated Al

Default-user

Sorry what i mean is to remove the custom created category menu and create my own using images as the buttons – is this possible? the data-category name doesn’t seem to work

cosmocoder

You can style the gallery menu through css, but you probably won’t be able to use specific images for each individual category button. Although you can try to use the css :nth-child selector to apply different background images to the category buttons.

ok – will do – cheers

Hi, I am getting a error concerning https calls on youtube videos

See here for example: https://campaignforsocialscience.org.uk/other-event/campaignlaunch-videos/ The gallery manager has the youtube video lists with a https:// protocol, but when it gets rendered it has been stripped. I check the check here by loading a new video, but this has the same issue.

Any clues would be gratefully received. Thanks

cosmocoder

The gallery js script internally uses http so that is why the youtube videos are not loading in your https page. If you contact me through my profile page message box then I will send the modified script. I will post an official update in Codecanyon later.

We had the videos working for a while then when we added SSL security to the website it ceases to work. http://aquascapes.com/diy-gallery/

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Replied to your email.

Is CCGallery compatible with Wordpress 3.9.2 as im getting a spinning wheel only on my CCGallery page http://www.schoolofblackbelts.com/gallery

The thumbnail for one of your “photo” items has not been generated, which has the title “Gaz Edwards Training”. I see that the path for the source image for that item is not right. Did you manually enter that path?

Default-user

Re uploaded that image and its working again, thank you for your help

cosmocoder

Good to know it is working.

hi, i purchased this plugin and set it up no problems on my development website. i uploaded the plugin to the live version of the website and all seemed to be ok, i can add images and youtube video reference via the admin but as soon as i try and add a vimeo reference and click ‘save options’ the whole page redirects to a 404. this only happens with vimeo I’m really confused .. help :(

cosmocoder

Thanks for purchasing!

I need a link to your page to inspect the problem.

Default-user

thanks for the reply, the page is at: http://www.propertyshooting.com/test-gallery/ you wont be able to replicate the issue unless you’re in the admin. Let me know if you need admin logins and i’ll send to your email.

cosmocoder

You can send the admin login by contacting me through my profile page message box – http://codecanyon.net/user/cosmocoder

Hi, I have a pre-sales question: does this plugin automatically grab and display the video thumbnail images from YouTube and Video or must these be added manually? And what about self-hosted videos… are the video thumbnail images grabbed automatically or must they be uploaded manually as Featured Images?

cosmocoder

All video thumbnail images, whether Youtube or self-hosted, have to be supplied by you. You have to upload these images from the gallery settings page (as shown in the screenshots).

Hi! Great plugin, effects are fantastic. : ) I need a bit of guidance here. I’m doing a site for a recording studio and I would like to use ccGallery in this matter. What I would like to do is use the Coverflow mode to say show the last 10 albums made in the studio on the front page and use the thumnails mode (in its own page) to use as some sort of portfolio. Maybe show 50 albums or more. Is there a way to quickly clone a gallery? Tx ahead for any insights?

cosmocoder

Thanks for purchasing!

There is no way to clone a gallery, so you need to create two separate galleries for the two scenarios you have described.

Can I upload many images at once or I have to do one by one?

cosmocoder

You have to upload your media files one by one. Each media file (photo, video, audio) is considered as one unique item. You have to create a new item by clicking the “Add Item” button and choose the type of media that item will represent, and after that you can upload your media file for that item.

Ok I understand. Two more questions. Is there a way to increase the size of images when people click on them? When they pop up they are not big enough. Second, i it possible to remove the icon that is displayed by the name of the image (the one that displays either a camera, video, or music file? I am showing only pictures so it makes no sense to display the icon.

cosmocoder

The images in the popup are set to have the largest possible size based on browser window size.

If you want to hide the icons then you can do so through css.

I’m using the Thumbnails mode. I added a new category (video) and added some youTube videos. It worked after the first video but once I added the second video item, something broke and now all I get is the spinning preloader. I even remove all the videos and the video category, and the preloader is still going; I can’t get the thumbnail view to come back. How can I fix?

Default-user

I figured it out… one of my thumbnail links was gone for some reason.

cosmocoder

Good to know that you fixed the problem.

Hi,

I am using your gallery for couple of months now. For some reason, in the backend, I cannot add,save or delete any item. Whatever I do the result is the same. This is where I’m using your plugin http://dvpimage.com/portofolio/

What can I do ?

Thank you

cosmocoder

First of all try to re-install the plugin and see if that helps. If it does not then you need to check your server error logs, after you perform a edit/delete operation to find out some clue about the problem.

Is there a way to have a Coverflow of images automatically play through in a loop?

cosmocoder

Thanks for purchasing!

Autoplay of coverflow images is not supported by the plugin.

The videos are not displaying for some reason. I believe it has something to do with the SSL security on the page. The videos are all set as https:// however, when inspecting where the videos should be, they are coming up as http://

This is causing the videos to be deemed a “security risk” and are all blocked by the browser. Is there something in the plugin that is forcing the videos to be http rather than https?

We are using your plugin here: https://aquascapes.com/diy-gallery/

Thanks!

cosmocoder

You are using Youtube videos, and the gallery js internally uses http url’s for the embedding of Youtube videos. The fix is very easy – just do a simple “search & replace” of the gallery js file and replace all instances of “http:” with “https:”.

Would this be the jquery-1.10.2.min.js file within the js folder?

cosmocoder

You need to edit the jquery.ccgallery.js file inside the “js” folder.

Hi,

I really like your gallery… I would just like to use the Coverflow presentation without the category menu above and the item list beneath. If I delete the menu and the listWrapper the gallery always switches to a thumbnail presentation… any hint how I can solve that problem ?

Thanks in advance.

cosmocoder

I see that you have not purchased this item. If someone else bought this for you then please ask that person to post this comment. If you bought the standalone HTML5 version of the gallery then please post your comment in that item’s comments section.

Thank you, replied. Hopefully we can figure this out. I really like the theme I am using and Im only using the default plugins that came with it, so hopefuly your plugin can be compatible.

Is there a way to upload approximately 50 images at once to the plug in?

cosmocoder

Due to the possibility of having an image or audio or video as a gallery item you have to upload each media file individually and supply the details for each item. You can however use FTP to bulk upload the images, but then you will need to select each image from within the gallery settings page and add it as an item and supply its details.

PrePurchase Question—I have a customer that is looking to link PDF files into their gallery as well as Videos, is this a possibility? Heather

cosmocoder

The item captions can hold custom html content, so you can insert anchor tags there to form links. Will that do for you or were you after something else?

I`m having issues—when I install and attempt to load files, everything seems fine until I go to view and then I just get a continuous spinning loading bar. Help!

cosmocoder

You have included a Amazon S3 url for your video source which contains special characters like “&” and ”=” and which is preventing the browser from parsing the data sent from the gallery back-end. Moreover I think you have not included a direct url to your video file in Amazon S3, please check. Also note that all items must have an associated image file to be used as a thumbnail.

Default-user

I do have a thumbnail, and the program works with a YouTube link - but I am unsure how to get Amazon S3 Links without the ’=’ and the ‘&’ -- any suggestions on where to get this? I understood from my research that this program works with Amazon S3 which is why I purchased it.

cosmocoder

You have to replace the “&” with its corresponding html entity. The comments area is not letting me write the html entity, but you can find it by a quick google search.
