Hi Firsh, I’m really getting on well with JIG. Thanks again!

I want to add a bit of functionality to my galleries and would love your advice.

I want to display a link that says ‘Add to Favorites’ which allows the user to collect and save their favorite images, and then come back later to retrieve them and further edit the favorites collection. All within my own site.

This would preferably be done within the lightbox (but maybe also or instead in the Grid).

I suppose this is essentially allowing a user to create their own temporary gallery (or maybe media category…)?

And I don’t mind if it’s just with cookies or using full-blown WP user accounts.

Is this possible? Any suggestions?

Many thanks, Nat

This is not a feature of JIG, not out of the box, I can point you into the right direction however. Hire a freelancer to implement this functionality for you. Put the favorite button into the following lightboxes: prettyPhoto or (probably today’s update) the new PhotoSwipe. Both have “Smart Deeplinking” which carries the ID of the image, for example from the media library or Nextgen, etc. Using the ID information a script will be able tot craft a favorite pool of IDs. You can show content by IDs using a JIG template tag in PHP, on a page where you’d show the favorites.

I’m getting There is a new version of Justified Image Grid available. View version 2.4 details. Automatic update is unavailable for this plugin. Add your license key to JIG settings for automatic updates! Automatic update error! Your purchase code is not in the required format! Please check again, it should be added in the following format: xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx

However, after re-entering my Item Purchase Code from the text file nothing has changed and the error is still present.

Go to updates tab of WP and click Check Again.

Make sure you copied the code and just the code, none of the accompanying text or spaces.

Is there any way to sort the Facebook galleries so that they’re descending by date added? (ie, have the newest ones show up at the top?) Thanks. Amazing plugin!

Firsh
Firsh Author

That’s the default sorting on Facebook (date modified, not necessarily date added), I don’t believe you can sort them even on Facebook. So no it’s not possible to sort them apart from randomizing. Thanks :)

Loving the update and new PhotoSwipe 4!!!

...But I’d like to tweak it a little. I think the Next and Prev buttons are too small, I’d like to make them bigger, can you suggest? Is it a graphic or font that I can change the size? I’m having problems finding it.

Also, I’d like the images to slide in. In the old version I used to tweak this with success but I forgot how… also looking at minimized code makes my head hurt! Can you suggest about changing the slide duration?

I’d also like to change the slide duration in Magnific Popup. I’m just not a fan of the sudden image change, I like a smoother UX. Just me maybe…

Thanks!

I completely disagree with the author. Silly to compare 500px, Flickr or Imgur to how we are using PS4. 500px, Flickr or Imgur is loading tons of info on each click, that’s not happening with 90% of people designing sites using JIG and/or PS4.

He’s a great programmer but common sense tells you that’s a bad comparison and he doesn’t quite understand who and how his products are being used.

Just my 10 cents! :-)

Firsh

Big companies like Facebook and Flickr. Interesting debate but I’m more on his side though. It’s better for performance. Old PhotoSwipe was horrible on really old devices.

There is nothing in common between the old and the new photoswipe, so it’s not as simple as changing a simple setting, it’s simply not implemented in the new PS. Also it’s different from Magnific. Use Blueimp if you need the sliding animation that’s all I can recommend in this situation.

Can someone explain how to update this plugin? I may be missing something but the instructions are not clear. Where do I go to update??? any help would be appreciated.

ugg I’ve followed the video exactly. the JIG gallery does not override the WP gallery.if i delete the wp gallery it’s fine but then how do i edit the gallery without having to redo the whole step?

Firsh
Firsh Author

If you feel that JIG is not taking over the standard WP galleries, then another plugin or your theme is interfering by taking over it (even not visibly).

Skip the video and just do:

Setup (quickest, automatically apply to existing galleries)

1. Go to Settings -> Justified Image Grid -> General settings

2. Find the “Behavior of the plugin” section

3. In the setting “Take over and replace [gallery] WordPress gallery shortcodes”, select “Yes, act in place of the [gallery] shortcode.” – this will automatically apply Justified Image Grid on your existing galleries.

ok, i selected the overide for JIG to replace all WP galleries. It works fine, when I want to edit the existing gallery, I have to create a new gallery then copy and paste the id codes into the shortcode that is already there, then delete the new gallery shortcode to avoid getting double photos. Kind of annoying since I cannot use the feature of dragging to reorder the images or anything like that unless I memorize the id numbers and that isnt going to happen. another question: I have one main gallery (with everyone’s photos) and many pages/portfolios of individual artist profiles. All photos in the main gallery I want to link to the artists profile page. Is it possible to create a separate gallery on the pages of each artist profile so that all of their photos that are in the media library will be posted on each artist page without having to selected them manually? For instance, can I set up the page to insert all photos from “Jane Doe”? That way a person clicks on a certain photo from the main gallery, it opens up to pretty photo and has a link to go to the artist profile. Once the artist profile page opens up, all art of that person is shown on that page. Thanks for any help you can offer.

Hi Firsh, How do I contact support to unbind my license from the other domain? If you need purchase code, I will need mailing info.

Justified Image Grid You have version 2.3.1 installed. Update to 2.4. View version 2.4 details. Compatibility with WordPress 4.1: 100% (according to its author) Automatic update error! This purchase code has already been used on another domain! You need one regular license for each different end product. You can setup your staging area on the same domain to have autoupdates on both installations. Contact JIG support to unbind your license from the other domain.

Is it possible to configure the extension to have the cache directory outside the plugin directory ? By example In /wp-content/uploads/jig/ Thank you.

Dimitri

Firsh
Firsh Author

Currently not. Could try with (unix?) symbolic links on your server though. Why would that be needed? The contents of that folder change often and I think it’s best to keep that separate from manual uploads.

lekiend
lekiend Purchased

I prefer to separate the code from the uploads and keep my wordpress files well organized. Many plugins store the cache in wp-content/uploads/xxx or directly in wp-content/xxx. That way, I can easily apply different unix rights. I’d love to have an option somewhere in general settings to change that. Just an idea for you ;-)

Hi, new version seems to have a z-index issue with the Bridge Theme.. JIG appears beneath the menu and the section menus..

ianstudio
ianstudio Purchased

Thanks, not working. Galleries don’t even load at all when I add this code you just gave me, both with BRIDGE and ENFOLD.

So I’m remaining with 2.3.1 fo now.. THOUGH I have some scrolling issues that were fixed at some point using:

html.responsive, .responsive body {overflow-x: inherit;}

But this has broken again under 2.3.1 still.. not sure when.. it used to work.

.. I need to make this all clear to you with screen shots and the whole bit, do you have a forum? I prefer taking things slowly than quickie custom codes that don’t work.

Firsh
Firsh Author

The problem lies in the fact that JIG and its PhotoSwipe element lies deeply nested in the hierarchy of elements in the page, therefore z-index can’t act so well, I’ll move the element up for the next version. The custom code brings PS to the same level as all top-level elements like header navigation etc. The problem could be that CodeCanyon replaced the ’ quotes characters to fancy print style quotes which can break JS.

Copy the code again, this time manually type-replace the quotes with normal straight single or double quotes.

You can contact me from my profile. If it’s a live site why it is not possible to send me a link? I don’t get the reason :)

jQuery(’.pswp’).appendTo(‘body’); Not working and I pasted as plain text (I always do) so removed it now.

You can take a look here. This is a live site with your latest version and Swipe 4, a site on which I AM NOT using your grid on any visible page (this one is a test page). So you can see the “z-issue” here:

http://www.lecafevivant.ch/media/

PS: As for the main site I need to fix as well I obviously cannot have a non-working plugin so I have reverted to 2.3.1, that’s why I canot show it.. or I can show it but it won’t do you any good since it’s 2.3.1. Is that a comprehensible reason ?!

Hi – i just updated the plugin and it seems that the gallery is using every image uploaded to the page, not just the images in the gallery. Can you tell me how to fix? Here is the URL (the logo should not appear again in the gallery) – http://katedawsonphotography.com/

Firsh
Firsh Author

Isn’t that the featured image of the post? If you type the word featured into the exclude setting, does it exclude the logo? What is your shortcode?

Default-user
tammi4fsu Purchased

it is not a post, but a page. the shortcode is just [justified_image_grid] i also tried this shortcode [justified_image_grid=”29,28,27,26,25,24,23,22”] and it still included the other photo

Firsh
Firsh Author

If you click add media, then switch to “uploaded to this page”, is the logo there?

Watch out what kind of ” you use especially if you tried to manually edit the shortcode. It’d be best to not use quotes at all. Furthermore the shortcode is invalid, please don’t edit the shortcode manually, I’ll change the video in some time. Use this:

[justified_image_grid ids=29,28,27,26,25,24,23,22]

If the quotes are book style, the shortcode content could be skipped and it would work the same way as the empty shortcode.

Better yet,

1. Go to Settings -> Justified Image Grid -> General settings

2. Find the “Behavior of the plugin” section

3. In the setting “Take over and replace [gallery] WordPress gallery shortcodes”, select “Yes, act in place of the [gallery] shortcode.” – this will automatically apply Justified Image Grid on your existing galleries.

We developed a site with your plugin under a subdomain that started with “dev.”—now that the site is live, the domain starts with “www”.

We need to unlink the dev domain so that we can link the www domain.

The plugin upgrade notice in wp-admin ends with this sentence: ”... contact JIG support to unbind your license from the other domain.”

What is our next step?

I’m having a weird issue when applying an inner border and using a custom lightbox such as Colorbox (my customized version) or Blueimp Gallery.

Let me know when you want to test this live demo site so I can switch back, until then here’s a screencast: http://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/c2lYnKetdx

Any ideas?

Yes that’s z-index, weird. Send me a link to where this happens.

I fixed it by setting .jig-overflow z-index the same as the gallery/lightbox. This was only happening with my CSS hack to show the header and lightbox at the same time. I had lowered the lightbox z-index, probably should have raised the header instead.

Anyway, ok now!

Do the thumbnails load in a random order? Is there anyway to make them load in order so it flows from top to bottom?

Sometimes as thumbs are loading a white/black space will develop as thumbs around it load and leave an empty space.

All thumbs do load, not an issue, just wondering if the order can be controlled.

Thanks!

Firsh
Firsh Author

I decided not to load-manage the thumbnails as it’s the fastest this way, e.g. no preloaders or throttling of any kind. The browser decides the order, normally it’s parallel 4-6 from top to bottom. If a thumbnail is small it gets loaded faster than a heavier one, resulting in blocks. I recommend using the background color setting for thumbnails to show light grey blocks where the pictures will be, like on Flickr.

I’ve noticed that my Titles are inherited from my body font settings in my theme. However, is there a way to make them inherit the Heading font?

Is it possible to separate my media categories from my post categories? When I go to make a post, I don’ want to see media categories when I select my post category.

Hello,

One of my user report to me she got the following error message:

The Justified Image Grid JS is not loaded. Try disabling Conditional script loading in the General settings.

on every portfolio page: http://www.goret.eu/portraits-dartistes/ (it was ok before)

I don’t have the issue on my computer. I tried to disable de conditional script loading but it does not change anything.

Thanks.

Is there any setting to set permission limit to the donwload link in lightbox. I mean to set the download link but only specific membergroup can download the photo. And if a ordinary membergroup or guests get a message that they could not download this image because there are only for special members.

That would be awesome!

Thanks
