Hi on my site here http://www.digitalfactory.co.uk/gallery/ i have 3 gallery sets, since upgrading to the latest version of nova gallery wp they no longer load when you click on them, any help appreciated.

I was able to open the page and checked the gallery. The sets are showing up fine but on clicking the set thumbnail the items within the set are not showing. Strangely enough when I copy the generated gallery data into my local setup then the gallery works absolutely fine and all items are displayed.

Have you disabled every other plugin? Also try the plugin in the default WP theme and see what happens.

Default-user

the only plugins i have running are ubermenu and ubermenu flat skins which i have turned off to test but the problem is still there, i put them on again for navigation, i have changed the theme to 2014 and the gallery still didn’t open, this only seems to have happened since i did the latest nova gallery upgrade, could i get the last version to try?

Please contact me through my profile page message box and we will continue our discussion from there.

Hy, Did you think there will be a option to implement the function to show private picasa galleries, after OAuth Authentication? I was so happy to have found this script and purchase it. Now I see, I could only link public images, but I would use this script to create a private photo gallery. Thanks! Stefan

cosmocoder

Thanks for purchasing!

Private Picasa galleries cannot be handled by this plugin. I may have a look at this feature in the future.

Hi there I wanted to make the thumbnails larger for the gallery sets, but after changing the dimensions one image over laps the other image http://abeltoro.com.au/gallery/

I can’t seem to figure out to make the two images set side by side?

cosmocoder

You had set the dimensions on the img tags but did not make the necessary changes to #novaGallerySets li. Just remove the width and height settings from the li tags and the sets will look good.

Is there a way to swap Gallery Set Orders? Because when I have attempted to swap Gallery Sets orders the only thing that changes is the Gallery Sets main image? So the main image changes and all the images in the set stay the same

cosmocoder

When you change the order of the set then the whole set is moved to a new position. This is reflected in the gallery front-end in the sets view page. Obviously the items that were associated with the set will stay where they are. You cannot change the association of an item from one set to the other.

Default-user

Maybe I need to explain a bit better, if I change the order of the set nothing changes except the name of the set, the sets stay in exactly the same order as they appeared before the change and the name of the set swaps instead of the actually set

cosmocoder

I am not getting a clear picture of the problem through this. Contact me through my profile page message box and give me access to your WP Admin and I will have a look at the problem.

When i open the page of the gallery, in some cases, the container of thumbnails disappears. It reappears when I apply some filters. how can i fix it?

On the other hand, the css style doesn’t apply correctly at the drop down filter. You can see it here: http://k32.kn3.net/442B093C9.jpg

cosmocoder

Yes, I saw this issue now. This could happen due to some css issue. I would like you try out the gallery with the default css in order to verify that the new styling is not causing this.

Default-user

i tried with default css and the problem persist with my theme. What could be happening?

cosmocoder

Your theme probably is doing some js and css stuff that is causing the thumbnails to vanish on page reload. To verify that your theme is causing this try out the gallery with the default Wordpress theme.

Any chance of adding an option so when someone clicks on a gallery set there is option to go back to the gallery set main page after they have gone into a set? so it like a go back button

cosmocoder

The gallery already provides such a back button. It should be in the gallery menu bar.

Default-user

Is there any way to totally remove the filter button?

cosmocoder

If you want to hide the filter button then you will have to do so through css, by setting the button element to display: none

Dear. Plug-in Developer.

I am now using ‘Nova Gallery’ plug-in on our blog. After I installed that plug-in some errors were found.

Error Detail - I create gallery with the option [Resize to fit media in Fullwidth mode]. When it loads the plug-in forces the image size to 0*0 pixel. Therefore the image in the gallery is not seen on the blog.

After I click other image the error was gone. The error is happened only the first first the gallery loaded.

If you need the blog url, I will send you.

I wonder if there is similar case. Please tell me how to fix it.

Thank you very much.

Default-user

Dear. CosmoCoder.

I modified style.css as you mentioned. I delete max-with:100% but I still have the same problem.

Would you please check again?

Regards i4u Networks

Default-user

I remove the height setting also. but I still have the same problem.

Would you please check again?

Default-user

Replied to your email. Please check again.

I saw the preview of the plugin that you can have photos sitle Masonry , but despite following the instructions I can not make it happen. Can you help me? I work with wordpress 4

cosmocoder

Thanks for purchasing!

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

Default-user

Thank you for having responded quickly and supporting me and solved all kinds of problems that I have encountered.

I’ve been using Nova Gallery for more than a year, and today, just by an accident I removed one of the galleries. I have backup file of my whole webpage, but don’t want to roll it all back, because of other changes undergone on my page since the backup was made.

Which files from my backup relatedo to nova gallery should I copy to my ftp, so I could see my gallery back?

cosmocoder

I see that you have not purchased this item. If someone else purchased this for you then please ask that person to post this comment.

Default-user

Web developer bought it for me, but he is fired now ;) Here is my licensing info:

Item ID: 4385228 Item Purchase Code: 59651997-3036-446e-a01f-a3ccbdc78c84 Purchase Date: 2013-08-16 08:14:23 UTC

cosmocoder

The gallery data is not stored in files, but in the WP Options table, so you cannot restore a gallery by restoring older versions of the files.

Can this plugin grab videos from picasa?

cosmocoder

No, only photos are pulled from Picasa.

Nice plugin, is it posible to create sub gallery for example. i have man 4 album, i.e. Wedding, Birthday, Parites. etc. and under wedding i like to have some album under some personal name. sussh as JOHN, DAVID, VERONICA etc.

cosmocoder

Sub galleries, in the manner that you described, is not supported. You can only have sets in a gallery, but the sets themselves can’t have sub-sets. However you can make a gallery item link to another page, and that page can contain your “sub gallery”.

Default-user

but how do add photos, coz as my understanding if you upload portfolio item in category it will display all photos when you click gallery page. is it possible to see admin section. just want to see how it works as you said.

cosmocoder

Check out the screenshots.

is it possible to display the images with gaps, on your demo after i clicked the gallery2 album i can see the images displaying attached together.

cosmocoder

Yes, you can have gaps between the images. The plugin gives you the option to enter the spacing. Check out the screenshots in the item page that shows all the settings that the plugin provides.

Hello, the Flickr API does not work correctly for me with IE. Chrome and Firefox is running. All other Plugins are off. In IE only a few images are displayed. I have tried it on two different servers. The test page is http://www.bettschoner-zeitlarn.de/wp/ On the gallery page it is embedded. Can you please help me? Greetings and thank you

cosmocoder

Also add the following meta tag in the <head>

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge,chrome=1">
Default-user
Dooser Purchased
The code <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge,chrome=1"> is involved in the header.php. In addition, I have this code <?php wp_enqueue_script("jquery"); ?> added to get the error “jQuery is not defined” away. Because, unfortunately, the problem with IE remains.
cosmocoder

I checked both the galleries again in IE and could not load them. I however tried with a sample Flickr gallery of my own in IE, and found that the XdomainRequest plugin works in IE, but the catch is that you need to have https enabled in your server since the Flickr API is over https.

I can’t get the background gallery mask to cover the entire browser window in Chrome & Safari. Works fine in Firefox. I’ve tried both “Window” and “Container” for the display type of gallery, but no go. Consequently, mask and images are behind the logo & navigation. I’ve tried various z-index combinations, but it seems to be more of an issue with the mask not covering the entire area.

Default-user

Nevermind. It was caused by some theme css but is fixed now. Thanks!

cosmocoder

Good to know that your problem got sorted out.

Hello Cosmocoder.

Missed this before I purchased because you used the term video ‘embed’ in your ad? You don’t actually accommodate video embedding in the plugin. You link the videos from YouTube and Vimeo – only.

I’m using a content site called Rightster. Would prefer to be able to embed that content. Is there a way to add Rightster as one of the linking options – or preferably embedding options?

Thanks.

cosmocoder

Nova Gallery, as described in the item details page, can only embed Youtube/Vimeo videos and also your own self hosted video files. If Rightster acts as a CDN and gives access to the video file url’s then you can try to embed that video. Also note that you can enter custom html for the item descriptions so you can also insert anchor tags to link to your Rightster video page (or any other page).

If you would like to talk about this more then you can contact me through my profile page message box.

Hi there, I’ve purchased your plugin some time ago and everything was just fine but now I’ve reached 49 videos in one gallery and I’m not able to add any more videos. I’m in need to add much more vidoes to this single gallery, how to make it happen? I will appreciate any help with that, Thank you. Slavo Janowski

My page with the video gallery: http://www.mymoviesdb.it/my-youtube-movies-db/
cosmocoder

This can happen if your server or MYSQL settings have a upper limit on the amount of data that can be saved in the database. It can also happen due to low PHP memory or restrictions on code processing/execution time. You need to check your server error logs and consult with your hosting provider.

Default-user

Thank you for your answer, i will check all this, thx.

thanks for this great plugin!

everything worked – the webpage with the shortcode brings in my picasa photos – however, I just now added a new photo to my picasa album, and it’s not showing up on the gallery of my webpage, even though I cleared the cache and reopened the browser and waited 15 minutes. ??? what should i do?

cosmocoder
Is it possible to have sets when using picasa? If so, from where do I take the name of the gallery set?

There is a “collection” option for Picasa where all your albums are shown. You can even set the number of albums to show,

As for the image size the gallery allows you to set the size of the images that will be pulled from Picasa. Please see the documentation for this.

Default-user

Okay, great – thank you. One more thing – I’m in thumbnail mode – when the picture is large and I click the arrows to scroll through the pictures, the large picture kind of closes, like an eye blinking, and then opens again with the new picture. Is it possible to have a different animation between photos?

cosmocoder

That animation effect is built into the gallery code. If you need to change it then you will have to edit the gallery js.

Hi,

According to this comments you said 9 month’s ago:

Private Picasa galleries cannot be handled by this plugin. I may have a look at this feature in the future.

Is there any chance Picasa private albums will be implemented soon? There are a lot of people searching for an alternative because Picasa and Google Plus Express isn’t working anymore for private albums.

https://wordpress.org/plugins/picasa-express-x2/

cosmocoder

No, private albums cannot be handled by this gallery.

This looks like what I need, but I want to make sure before I purchase. I’m looking for a plugin that will allow me to have a slideshow and play music at the same time. Will this plugin allow me to do so?

Thanks!

cosmocoder

This gallery does not play music in the background but only plays audio files when they are set as gallery items. Also note that the gallery items need to be manually opened/shown in the Fullwidth mode.
