I am liking what I see here… couple pre-purchase questions:

1) Do you have any 3rd party plugin for LIghtroom (publishing plugin) so as to better manage gallery content rather than the limited WP media manager? 2) If not (above), then is there a quality WP plugin that gives “hierarchical folder” organization to the WP media manager? 3) Can your gallery integrate with any type of “shopping cart”.. even a super basic one that just allows me to get an email for selling images?

thank you,

You know,, there is only one WP publishing plugin on the market for lightroom and it is solely for NGG… If you built a LR publishing plugin that worked with your gallery plugin… Man,, you could take over the world.

Firsh

True, thank you for the idea. I’ll consider such thing since me myself also extensively use lightroom as I shoot in RAW when I travel. Mind you that lightroom plugins may be written in a language that I’m not familiar with, but will check it out. At least I’ll write a tutorial about the current workflow from lightroom to JIG, it’s not too complicated.

Anyway I would not be writing it solely for JIG, since I don’t have my own image source/library in the plugin. So it would be for standard WP media library. That would be even better because it would not be “solely for another WP plugin”, so people without JIG could make use of it (until they discover JIG :D).

Alternatively you can use publishing plugin for Flickr, then connect Flickr to JIG :) Another source option would be Facebook and I’m looking forward to having more photography-related source options, maybe as extensions, in the future.

Question: When you mention selling images, do you mean them as digital stock, or prints?

Default-user

Yes,, I currently am doing exactly what you suggested with Flickr in order to have a “psuedo publishing option”. I use the Flickr publisher to manage my photos in WP, by bringing in the Flickr galleries into WP. But,, I would prefer not to have to do that. I loose control of many possible features that way (for instance a shopping cart).

As far as when I mention “selling”.. I just want to be able to sell prints. All I’m looking for is the most basic cart tied directly into my images. (So person sees a photo > clicks on “buy print” button > they see a list of sizes, prices and quantity > when they make the purchase (pay is fine), I get an email with the order.

Unfortunetly the only thing like this I can find is through NGG (pro) and I really dislike the NG system in general.

The ultimate would be if there were some way to add a simple cart into the lightbox while still “pulling” the images from Flickr..

Hi there,

can Justified Image Grid also go masonry style as you see here? http://amazon.format.com/

Also: Is it possible to set the wanted height for the images in each gallery (e.g. for flickr style? http://codecanyon.net/item/justified-image-grid-premium-wordpress-gallery/full_screen_preview/2594251)? I’d like them to be larger than in your demo^^

Thanks a lot, Peter

Nope – In my definition, JIG is masonry. Masons http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Masonry are who lay bricks http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brick for walls and bricks are put horizontally like my plugin :) That’s just me though. Pinterest style or mixed rows/columns are not possible with JIG, it’s strictly row-based.

Yes you can set row height, row height deviation individually for each gallery and change any settings when you started out with a preset.

Default-user

Hehe right ;) I was talking about mixed columns ;)

Okay thanks!

I really like what I see…just a short question before I buy. Is there any way to include Ads like Adsense or similar to the lightbox. So when you click to the next photo also the ad changes? If not are you able to code that? I would even pay extra for this feature ;)

Firsh
Firsh Author

Sorry I don’t have experience with adsense and what’s their criteria about where and how could it be included. You can put any html in the lightbox text though. I’m not available for freelance.

Does your flickr feed allow me to bring in “Collections”? If so can you point me to a demo that shows how that would work…

When an album with in a collection is selected, does it display right there? is there breadcrubmbs or back button to return to the Collection display? Or does it simply link to the actual flickr page gallery?

thanks

Firsh

There you go: http://justifiedgrid.com/flickr-collections-demo-gtewks/ The collections thumbnail is set/created by Flickr and is unfortunately only available at this size. You can manage it to have the “grey one” replaced with a “colorful one”. Other than that the demo shows it.

This page: http://justifiedgrid.com/flickr-collections-demo-gtewks/flickr-content/61682350-72157647133755998/ can open the galleries directly, without traversing to yet another page, and open them directly in the lightbox from this page.

I look forward to creating an open online admin demo, there are solutions for it. I was just afraid that tons of people would alter it left and right making it unpleasant to the n+1 user. But they can be done in a way that each login is separate and everyone starts with settings I settled.

Default-user

I see,, so when creating a “collection” page, it will use those “grid preview thumbs”. Is there any way to make the collection titles display without rollover? I think it is confusing to a visitor to have to rollover the thumbs just to see what the collection title is. I would prefer that visitors can simply read the titles without action.

Firsh

Yes any of these are available: http://justifiedgrid.com/captions-over-the-thumbnails/

All levels will use the same style, from collection grid to photo thumbnails. In the future I’ll work out to have them separately styleable.

Hello—I was wondering whether there is a setting with JIG that will allow me to use Nextgen’s custom fields. In my case I am trying to add a link to separate pages on each of these images:

http://www.artblend.com/mj/image-gallery/

On the surface it looks like I did everything correctly, but I don’t know if there is anything in this shortcode that would prevent the custom field from working.

[justified_image_grid preset=4 thumbs_spacing=5 row_height=300 title_field=title caption_field=off caption=fixed caption_bg_color=transparent caption_match_width=yes caption_title_size=37px caption_desc_size=70 caption_align=center v_center_captions=yes gradient_caption_bg=no overlay=hovered overlay_color=#27CCC0 overlay_icon=off overlay_icon_opacity=1 overlay_opacity=.60 lightbox=foobox margin=0 limit=0 width_mode=fixed-mobile aspect_ratio=3:2 ng_gallery=17]

There is dedicated support for NGG CF plugin. https://wordpress.org/plugins/nextgen-gallery-custom-fields/ You need to enter the name of your custom field that hold the link, to JIG settings, NextGEN tab, “NextGEN custom field for Links” setting. Have you found that?

The documentation has more info on this.

Things that can stop it from working:

General tab: “Custom link’s target” setting. Lightboxes tab: “link-off” choice

Not entering a complete URL in the custom field. If you just start it with www then it’s not enough.

Custom lightboxes.

Default-user

I had not seen the entering of the custom field. I entered ‘link’ and it works perfectly. Thank you!

Hi. Love the plugin been using it for a while. But I updated it and now whenever someone clicks on a picture two pictures pop up one on top of another. How can i get rid of that?

Remo www.allaboutvaughan.com (You can click on the food pictures on the bottom right)

Firsh
Firsh Author

Which lightbox do you intend to keep? The one with social buttons is prettyPhoto and it is added/activated by JIG. The other is magnific popup, brought in by the theme. You need to disable one of these (prettyPhoto in JIG, and magnific in the theme). JIG can make use of your already existing magnific popup without loading it again, if you wish. But it cannot disable your theme’s behavior.

Ah ok I got. It was the theme doing it automatically. I guess when I updated both of the plugins and theme it might have reset some of the settings!

Thanks!

No problem. BTW updating JIG does not alter any settings in it.

Hi There,

I just wondering if I buy this plugin, i can create taxonomy plugin similar to this website http://www.oncewed.com/wedding-ideas/

let me know Thanks

Firsh
Firsh Author

That kind of advanced filtering is not available with JIG sorry, you need a custom solution just for this purpose. Find a solution that makes use of http://luis-almeida.github.io/filtrify/ sorry it is not available yet for JIG.

You can create custom taxonomies with WCK plugin.

Hey Firsh, hoping you can help. My thumbnail gallery lists of posts stop at 10 thumbs. This is for category pages, search results pages, tag results pages etc. Here’s an example of each:

Cat: http://replycandy.com/category/fail/ (30 posts in this cat)

Search: http://replycandy.com/?s=meme (50+ posts under this term)

Tag: http://replycandy.com/tag/meme/ (50+ posts under this tag)

All of them max out at 10.

So you know, I have the following settings in place: GENERAL SETTINGS Limit image count: blank (tried 0 too but it had no effect) Hidden Limit: blank

LOAD MORE SETTINGS Load more: Infinite Scroll (Hybrid also didnt work) Load more limit: 50

What can I do to fix this?

Default-user
zapacoman Purchased

No. My theme has no impact on that. Also, if you goto the homepage, you’ll see that more than 10 results were returned there (because I explicitly set the items to be included by ID number in a Page JIG shortcode).

Yes, I’ve modded the search and tag results to display through JIG like categories did natively. Any ideas? I can give you access to my backend if that helps.

Default-user

Ok, so I located the source of the issue, and it’s a core Wordpress setting. For others who may stumble upon this thread having had the same issue, you need to go to SETTINGS>READING>”Blog pages show at most” and change it from 10 to something like 99999999999

Firsh
Firsh Author

In your mod, did you pass the result ID set of your native WP listing to JIG, by id numbers? In that case it’s not a JIG issue, it only shows how many ids you pass to it.

You can create the category listings differently where you pass the category slug/id to JIG directly to the recent posts feature’s appropriate settings. That way the limit setting will control how many results you have.

Thanks for sharing the solution :) Wasn’t sure about your mod.

Hi, for some reason the plugin is displaying the thumbnails as “no hotlinking” on mobile devices. It’s working fine on Desktops and iPads. The site is http://robertcliftlighting.co.uk/

Could you please advise me what to do here

Thanks

Firsh
Firsh Author

Does your host differ on mobile devices? Anyhow, open timthumb-config.php in the plugin’s folder on your server and either:

Add the other host to allowed hotlinkers. OR set BLOCK_EXTERNAL_LEECHERS to false.

when i activated the plugin i cant view the images in the media librady it keeps loading .. why?

Firsh
Firsh Author

Could be running out of memory or a PHP error could be blocking the AJAX request. Do you have wp_debug on true or false, in your wp-config.php? I could log in and check it out for you. Make sure you use v2.3 of JIG.

I am wondering if you are ever planning on making it possible to have Pinterest Pin It button appear over the images. I am pretty sure that because the images are generated on the fly other plugins don’t work on them and the regular Pin It button (from pinterest) doesn’t work to display them either. Or am I missing something?

Default-user

Thanks! I’m trying to get it going but I just don’t have the knowledge haha. I’ll eagerly await an update :)

Firsh

If you can show me which plugin is that you are trying to use I might come up with a solution.

Technically all you should need to add is the official javascript from Pinterest which is just one line of code: https://developers.pinterest.com/on_hover_pin_it_buttons/

But this plug-in looks nice because there are a lot of customization options: https://wordpress.org/plugins/jquery-pin-it-button-for-images/

Hello!

I’m trying to keep my captions white, but have only the caption background color have a gradient (not both). I’m using this code but I cannot see a background. Am I doing something wrong?

Yes the rgba example should be taken literally:

instead of 0,0,0,0.3 use rgba(0,0,0,0.3)

[justified_image_grid preset=4 thumbs_spacing=5 row_height=300 title_field=title caption_field=off caption=fixed caption_opacity=1 caption_bg_color=rgba(0,0,0,0.3) caption_match_width=no caption_text_color=#FFFFFF caption_title_size=37px caption_desc_size=70 caption_align=center v_center_captions=yes custom_fonts=yes gradient_caption_bg=no overlay=hovered overlay_color=#27CCC0 overlay_icon=off overlay_icon_opacity=1 overlay_opacity=.60 lightbox=foobox margin=0 limit=0 width_mode=fixed-mobile aspect_ratio=3:2 ng_gallery=17]

I want my gallery to load with my page – right now I opens a page. The page instantly loaded but the gallery appears after 10 seconds….... please tell me how I will able to load gallery with page. – - – - see http://www.islamicsea.com/gallery

Firsh

Hi, I checked it out and it could be due to the preloader in your theme, or cloudflare rocket loader. Can you disable it and check again? I ran a JS CPU profile and the time spent waiting for JIG to display is not spent by it working. If it was so you’d be unable to scroll during that time (browser would hang). Something is delaying javascript calls on the site.

Hi Firsh,

Nice plugin! I think this may be what I need for a project, but I have a few questions:

- I read that you cannot animate the filtering in the ‘isotope style’... but would there be a way to slow down the fade effect a little in the filter, just to make the transition a little smoother?

-I am making a photography website… and I would like the client to be able to add his photos in the backend, and the latest photo added to show up first in the thumbnail gallery… is this possible, in a straightforward way?

Thank you!

Default-user

oh! and one more question: can I use ‘pagination’ with your plugin… ? ....so instead of having all the pictures load on one page with a ‘load more’ feature, there are a certain number of images on one page, and then users have to click on page 2 to get more etc… Thanks.

Firsh

You can control the animation speed in the settings. I look forward to offering alternate layout options such as isotope in the future, but currently it’s not possible.

JIG offers automatic take-over of WP galleries so if you client can manage to use WP, then the resulting gallery can be displayed simply with JIG. The order can be date descending. If you mean the first thumbnail should be highlighted by becoming big, no that’s not yet a feature but is on the list to do.

No pagination (1 2 3 sense) but Load More and infinite scroll is available. Pagination can be achieved by WordPress pagination e.g. when you convert search results or category listing template files to be shown with JIG (advanced use), those pages are paginated by default.

Justified Image Grid: The Facebook content cannot be displayed, the error from Facebook: Generic Facebook error. What the problem? I use Microsoft Azure Cloud servers

Firsh

I’ll need more information about that. What does it say in the back-end, JIG settings when you are interacting with the added user. Was it working or is this the first time you’ve tried it? I can take a look at it if you contact me from my profile.
