Hello,
are you talking about the “curtain” effect?

Love the gallery, but how do I set the custom link to open in another tab?

I don’t want the visitor to go to another site. It would be better to have the link open in a new tab or window.

Any suggestions?

LCweb

Hello and thanks for purchasing,
yes, is a missing option. There’s no space to add a selector for each image, I’ll implement an option in the next release to set it globally.

For now, you have to change a javascript line in the plugin (redirects are managed by a tiny script). I can send you the code and tell you file + line, no problem ;)

That would be awesome. Yes, please tell me what to do. :-)

Would the hack still work after the release? Meaning if I change it now, but also upgrade with the release later on, will the hack still work?

Can the redirect to the url be in a new tab or window?

Okay, just show me…. I’m EXCITED!!!! :-)

LCweb

In next release the command will be in settings, then you won’t need the trick anymore :)

Okay, can you show me now the instructions to make the change now?

By the way, when is the next release?

LCweb

Thanks for purchasing,
next release won’t be too soon since I’ve just updated the plugin.

Trick is on global-gallery.php – line 204

Turn the code into
window.open( link ,'_blank');
Default-user

Are you sure the file is global-gallery.php?

I opened the file and there is nothing at line 204. Line 201 is wp_enqueue_style( ‘gg-colpick’, GG_URL.’/js/colpick/css/colpick.css’, 999);

Line 205 is // fancybox

Nothing between 201 and 205.

If I add in window.open( link ,’_blank’); then my WP crash

LCweb

Yes, file and line are correct. Anyway, let’s make it faster. Just replace this file

Default-user

It worked!!!! Now this is customer service!!!! :-)

I just noticed there is a new update today. I looked in the changelog and did not see open blank in new window, so do I just update the plugin, but then replace the file again?

LCweb

Sorry I’ve forgotten to update the changelog :)

Anyway, I’ve added the option to set the link behavior, then, if you want, you can update without worries

I also just noticed that on the thumbnails, you can’t run gif? Is that true?

I bought another plugin (Fast Gallery) and was able to run the gif animation on the thumbnail and wonder if I might be overlooking a setting. with Global Galley.

Either way, let me know.

Thanks

LCweb

Gifs are ok on lightbox, but on galleries you see thumbnails and PHP resizing scripts cannot keep aminations. Then you’ll see static images.

I set my images to be 200 X 200 for the thumbnail and also loaded up a 200 X 200, but the images are little bit blurry in quality.

Should I upload like 1000 X 1000 and let your plugin reduce it to 200 X 200?

Just trying to find the best way to create clear images

LCweb

Plugin already optimize/crop images to be used in galleries. Just upload 1000×1000 and let it does the rest.

If you are using a fullwidth gallery with masonry layout, remember to increase the gallery basewidth in plugin settings

Default-user

I loaded up 1080 X 1080 and the thumbnails came out perfect. But then my friend said my site was slow. Come to find out we went to pingdom and 12 thumbnails ended up being 3MB total. Took over 10 seconds to download on mobile.

Now I’m wondering, what is the best size image to upload? But still be able to get clear 200 X 200 thumbnails.

LCweb

Have you checked the gallery after its creation? As written in the documentation: best practice is to check it to let thumbnails creator to generate and cache thumbnails.

Once they are created, visitors will see only static images.

I need some assistance with Lightbox not showing on 97Park.com/retreat, but can’t find license code for support ticket. Please let me know how I can get in touch. Thx…

LCweb

Hello,
I see you’re running an old version of GlobalGallery and mediaGrid.
As first thing, update them. Then disable advanced modes you’ve enabled

Hi, Before i buy this plugin i use some images with other plugins and Visual Composer in many pages. I would like to add to all of them yours watermark effect. I like it! Is there any fast method to do this. Or i have to use this efect only with your plugin productiosn. Please if there is give me step by step instructions. Thanks!

LCweb

Hi,
if you’re talking about using watermark on any WP image, that is not possible.

The watermarker works only within GG galleries, through the shortcode code

Great plugin! However, over the weekend a couple of features seem to have mysteriously broken for me:

- Collections: Clicking on the image to take you to the related gallery does nothing. - Pagination: Similar issue as above: clicking on the page buttons does nothing, and the galleries appear (to the end-user) to only contain whatever is on the first page.

Any advice?

LCweb

Hello and thanks for purchasing,
is surely a javascript issue, but I need to check.

Could you give me a link?

Default-user
Here’s a link to a page with the pagination issues; I don’t have any collections posted. http://www.mattfossen.com/blog/transmog-pieces/
LCweb

Try disabling “JS in head” option

Default-user

That did the trick! Thanks a million!

Hi. Presales question – is there a way of using the gallery in a widget?

LCweb

Hello,
sure, you just need to enable shortcodes for WP text widget with this basic plugin

Hi,

Is it possible to rotate a images (landscape portrait)? I have images on Flickr that auto-rotate, but this is not adapted in Global Gallery WP. Is that correct?

Thx

Marcellino

Hi Marcellino and thanks for purchasing,
yes there’s no command to rotate images. Also because they are fetched directly from Flickr, there’s only a thumbnails cache to not overload customer servers

Ok, clear! Thx

First of all, this is a great plugin….however I do have a question on the automatic import feature.

What we’re trying to do is: Use an existing flickr account to automatically create new galleries from the albums within flickr. Currently as I see it, the automation will only be allowed if there has already been a gallery created within your plugin. Is there any way to have complete galleries imported from albums vs only importing photos?

LCweb
LCweb Author

Hello,
for now plugin is only able to get Flickr’s set images.

Maybe changing Flickr API implementation you’ll get what you need, but is quite complex to manage everything and surely requires PHP skills.

If you want I can tell you file – code line where elements are got

Hi. Sorry for the simple question but how do I work out what the shortcode is to add to a page?

LCweb
LCweb Author

Hello,
there’s a shortcode wizard on top of each WP editor

Default-user

Wow that was quick… Sorry, I still don’t understand… I have made a gallery and am now looking for the shortcode to add to a page. Please could you expand. Thanks.

Hi, is there an opportunity to set the shortcode (eg [g-slider gid=”3372” width=”100%” height=”71%” random=”0” watermark=”0”]) hardcoded in my index.php? If i do this, no gallery is shown. I see only this shortcode on my website.

Default-user
kevmaster Purchased

solved: <?php echo do_shortcode( ‘[g-slider gid=”3360” width=”100%” height=”71%” random=”0” watermark=”0”]’ ) ?>

Yes, through do_shortcode() ;)

When you have greyscale mask turned on and you display a collection all works good UNTIL you turn on “Title under images” in the collections layout settings. Then the greyscale no longer works. Thanks Tony
