Just wanted to say for everyone who’s wondering about this plugin that not only the plugin is great, but support is also stellar.

Makfak took the time to provide a VERY detailed answer to an issue that I had.

Kudos to you sir.

makfak

Thanks for the kind words.

Hi,

First of all; awesome plugin!! I absolutely love it! Well coded, and the end result of the mosaic is awesome – lots of respect! Definitely one of the coolest plugins I’ve ever used!

But (there’s always a but ;) I now use the plugin on a site that I’ve build on a customer site. The concept site on our own server where I presented the site for approval the plugin works without any problems – I’ve used the plugin on other customer sites too without a single problem. But I’ve now setup the site on the domain of the customer, and the mosaic doesn’t load. I only see the code. It’s the same theme, almost the same page content, and I’ve checked all the settings and everything looks the same.

I used v2.09 on the concept site and v2.10 on the customer site, and even downgrading to v2.9 didn’t work. I’m sure I’m missing something ‘stupid’ – like I’ve said, I never had any problems with it. Maybe it has something to do with the host or something, I’ve looked for hours for a solution but without any luck.

Would you mind having a look please? I’m not a programmer, and my knowledge only gets me so far…

The first page where I now want the mosiac to show is this one.

http://navigatenorth.nl/teams/team-db/

And this is the concept site where the plugin works as it should.

Please let me know if you need to logins or any other info from me.

I hope to hear from you.

Kind regards Vincent

Vincent,

Looking at the navigatenorth page I see the [gallery] shortcode at the bottom (under “Onze Sponsers”) and, you’re right, all the necessary files are being included on the page.

The two potential causes that immediately jump to mind are…

  1. The shortcode was copied from a text editor that supports rich text (e.g. MS Word) pasted into the “Visual” editor tab which honors rich-text characters. If any of the quotes in the shortcode are rich-text it can cause WP to skip that shortcode. To fix this, switch to the “Text” editor tab and manually retype all of the quotes in the shortcode.
  2. The shortcode is being included on the page by a widget (or something similar that isn’t the main post_content) and, for whatever reason, that widget isn’t processing shortcodes. The only way to fix this situation is to figure out which plugin or setting didn’t make the transfer to the production site.

Hopefully, the first one is to blame. If that doesn’t fix things, the form on my author page emails me directly. You can contact me there with login creds if you want me to take a look at your site’s Admin.

Hi All,

I got an issue with FLIP theme and this plugin, but I’m pretty sure you can solve.

When I put a gallery all the Native JS on theme doesnt works anymore.

Could you help?

Thanks a lot, love your plugin

makfak

Please provide a link to a page where I can see the problem happening.

This plugin looks great… just what I’m looking for. I have a pre-sales question though: The theme I want to use it in is not responsive (long story). Will this plugin work alright in a fixed layout theme? Thanks!

makfak

PhotoMosaic will absolutely work in a theme that isn’t responsive.

Hello!

Really great plugin. Liking it a lot.

I’m trying to use the mosaic to show recent posts on my home page in a more visual way. I can get it to use the featured images from recent posts no problem. I’m wondering if there is a way to also show some text (be it the post title, or excerpt?) from the post, maybe overlaid on the photos upon mouse-over. Is there any way to do this?

Thank you again!

Default-user

Hi makfak, I’ve tried adding the code as I think you’re instructing. The fully contents of my OnReady Callback box end up being:

function($mosaic, $items){ $items.each(function () { var $a = $(this); var $img = $a.find(‘img’); var $span = $(‘ ‘); $span.text( $img.attr(‘title’) ); $img.attr(‘title’, ’’); $a.append($span); }); }

But it’s still not removing the tooltip. I’m sure I’m still missing something …

makfak

The TITLE appears on multiple elements (because different lightboxes look in different places). You need to make sure you remove all of them. Try this…

function($mosaic, $items){
    $items.each(function () {
        var $a = $(this);
        var $img = $a.find('img');
        var $span = $('<span />');
        var text = $img.attr('title');
        $span.text( text );
        $a.append($span);
        $a.attr('title', '');
        $img.attr('title', '');
    });
}
Default-user

YES! That worked! Thanks a ton, makfak.

Hi, great plugin, but I am having one issue…when the page loads, the photomosaic loads off the page and then adjusts, please see the following link: http://ahdiseno.com/dominga/proyecto-minero/

Hope you can help me solve this issue. Thanks Antonia

makfak

PhotoMosaic is losing to your site’s CSS. Add the following to Custom CSS in your PhotoMosaic settings and you should be all set.

.photoMosaic.loading {
    position: static;
    margin-top: 0;
    z-index: initial;
    background-image: none;
}

Hi makfak,

My background image is going blurry when using an iPhone 6 plus with both Safari and Chrome browsers. It appears the blurriness is do to it being enlarged. It’s fine when using NextGen mosaic gallery.

Here are a few pics. PhotoMosaic http://www.coralreefecosystems.com/forum_images/photoMosaic.JPG

Here is the website. All pages behaving correctly except the events page here is the link to it. http://steveruddyphotography.com/events/ Just go to any other page while there and remember I have only noticed it on my iPhone and if I remember correctly it maybe happening on the iPad as well. No problems on the desktop when re sizing the browser window.

makfak

Thanks for the extra info. I believe what you’re seeing is the image being stretched (to maintain the cover sizing) on pages of varying heights.

Poking around your site, the two tallest pages are the Events page (the one with the PhotoMosaic) and the Blog (a page without any PhotoMosaics). Take a look at the Blog. You see that the bricks have been stretched here as well.

Let me know if you think I missed something but this problem appears to be a direct result of your site’s CSS and has nothing to do with PhotoMosaic.

Great thanks for checking. I’ll go to Photocrati about this as I haven’t really added any custom css code that I’m aware of that will do this.

Hello! I’ve just bought your plugin and it seems very nice and easy to use (perfect for my clients).

I’ve noticed that there is a bug when you create the gallery in wp media. on the top right settings, the 2 selector with columns and link-to, are broken by a php snippet. it seems to be an if statement, like what you would use to add the selected event. the gallery actually works anyway, but it will be better for you to look at it. ;)

I am using wordpress 4.0.1 and 2.10 of your plugin.

cheers!

makfak

This will be corrected in the next release.

Hey man. Another question :) I;m using you plugin again on a project at http://collective.visualco.co.nz/ and its not working. It just defaults to the standard WP gallery and links to a new page with image.

Any ideas?

Thanks

makfak

That doesn’t look like a default WP gallery. Odds are that your theme or another plugin is eating all [gallery] shortcodes. Try switching to the [photomosaic] shortcode.

nzkulture

Dude. Legendary support once again. Fixed. Where do i donate a beer or 10 for you ;)

You have my email address from previous support conversations… PayPal is always welcome ;)

Great plugin. Loving it so far. Thoughtfully created and worth the money. Keep up the great work!

Just one question though…..Is there a way to “force” the masonry grid to go to one column in scenarios less than 480 px wide for mobile. Like a media querie conditional….right now it is going to two columns.

Default-user

nevermind figured it out. I can specify in the shortcode. Rock on!

tl:dr is there a WP slider plugin that will integrate with Photomosaic?

I’ve purchased the plugin and like it a lot. However, I’d love to use this with a slider instead of a lightbox; I find popup lightboxes obtrusive and prefer sliders. On my site (http://www.jimnewberry.com) I’m currently using Photomosaic on the homepage and Royalslider for my full image galleries. But I don’t think I can integrate the two because to use images with RS I need to upload them to that section in settings—RS doesn’t use images in a gallery or page or post.

Here’s a site that uses a masonry index of images, but big photos are in a slider: http://portfolio.joemcnally.com/#!/portfolio/C0000VjAIFtkouVY/G0000iLyNKdcmD2A

Do you know of a WP slider plugin that will integrate with Photomosaic?

makfak

tl:dr – Nothing out-of-the-box but RoyalSlide can be made to work if you’re willing to write a little bit of Javascript.

There’s almost no difference between opening an image in a lightbox (which is often a slider that overlays the page) and what you’re looking to do (open an image in a non-lightboxed slider). The differences are purely cosmetic (notice that the default lightbox that comes with PhotoMosaic is a slider).

The biggest obstacle in your way is, simply, that non-lightbox sliders don’t offer APIs/interfaces that work the same way lightbox sliders do. Meaning, they don’t think people will want to use them the way you want so they don’t make it an easy thing to do. In this case, It’s less about making PhotoMosaic work with a slider and more about finding a slider that has a lightbox-like API.

The good news is RoyalSlider has a decent API... so, at least you have something to work with. The bad news is, like all sliders, the API wasn’t designed with your use case in mind so you’ll have to do a bunch of heavy lifting to make it work.

Using PhotoMosaic’s “onReady Callback” to run some custom JS when your mosaic is loaded… you just need to spin up an instance of RoyalSlider; use the “appendSlide” method to add images to it (so you don’t have to use its WP interface); and bind a click event that hides the mosaic, shows the slider, and uses the “goTo” method to show the correct slide.

Because RoyalSlider doesn’t have a lightbox interface you’ll have to come up with a way for people to ‘close’ the slider and return to the mosaic… assuming that’s something you want. But that’s the only pieces that you’ll need to shoehorn in.

Good luck.

Hi makfak,

I really like your plugin but there is one problem. I used it on a site http://wordpress.goeleng.de/projekte/ but it doesnt show up on my mobile phone (Iphone 3gs) or on the phone of my girlfriend (Samsung Galaxy Ace?). There was a similar comment but clearing the cache of my phone didn’t fix the problem. I would like to know why the gallery isn’t showing up.

Thank you. Goeleng

makfak

I’ve checked you site on every device I have access to and I see the mosaic just fine on all of them.

If you’re still having trouble, check your browser’s console for a message (error or info) from PhotoMosaic. If it can’t render it posts a message explaining why.

I get three errors. 1. TypeError: ‘undefined’ is not a function 2. ReferenceError: Can’t find variable: React 3. TypeError: ‘undefined’ is not a function

I searched for the error 1. and 3. and they say you have to use jquery(function(..)) instead of $(function(..)). I didnt know that I use the variable “React” maybe it’s from Wordpress or PhotoMosaic.

makfak

Try as I might, I can’t reproduce those errors. It would be useful to know which files were throwing the “undefined is not a function” errors.

PhotoMosaic uses React.

As for “jQuery” vs. ”$”... Looking at the your site’s source, it’s clear that your theme is doing a couple of things poorly.

1. Your theme is loading a copy of jQuery (v.1.8.3) but it isn’t using the proper wp_enqueue_script method to do it. This is causing jQuery (v1.8.3 & v1.11.1) to be loaded multiple times (PhotoMosaic and Bitvolution Galleria request jQuery through wp_enqueue_script and, if your theme did the same, only v1.11.1 would be loaded).

2. Normally when jQuery loads it assigns itself to 2 window variables, “jQuery” and ”$”. jQuery comes with a method (“noConflict”) that relinquishes control of the ”$” variable, lets you specify a new window variable (e.g. ”$j”), and lets you relinquish control of the “jQuery” window variable. For some reason your theme has the following snippet:

var $ = jQuery.noConflict();

This snippet doesn’t make any sense. It tells jQuery to stop using the ”$” variable but then assigns jQuery to the ”$” – it does absolutely nothing. The version of jQuery that loads when using wp_enqueue_script automatically calls “noConflict” to release the ”$” but doesn’t release “jQuery”. This means that one version of jQuery is available on ”$” (v1.8.3) and another on “jQuery” (v1.11.1).

There are a number of scripts that run after the theme’s jQuery loads but before the enqueue’d jQuery loads. If any of those script bind themselves to “jQuery” and then later try to execute using “jQuery” they will have bound to v1.8.3 and be trying to execute on v1.11.1. That would absolutely cause the “undefined is not a function” error your seeing.

Because I can’t reproduce the errors you’re seeing I can only guess at a solution but I’m pretty confident that correcting the way your theme loads jQuery (use wp_enqueue_script) will likely fix things.

Good Luck.

Hi, I was trying to add in the post title to the gallery, in the same way as andrewprinsen I tried the following:
function($mosaic, $items){
    $items.each(function () {
        var $a = $(this);
        var $img = $a.find('img');
        var $span = $('<span />');
        var text = $img.attr('title');
        $span.text( text );
        $a.append($span);
        $a.attr('title', '');
        $img.attr('title', '');
    });
}
However I am getting an error on the
var $a = $(this);
Has anyone managed to get this done?

Sorry, I had placed the code in the functions file, instead of the “onReady Callback”

makfak

Glad to hear you figure it out.

Having placed the code:
function($mosaic, $items){
    $items.each(function () {
        var $img = $a.find('img');
        var $span = $('<span />');
        var text = $img.attr('title');
        $span.text( text );
        $a.append($span);
        $a.attr('title', '');
        $img.attr('title', '');
    });
}
in the “onReady Callback” I am not seeing any titles showing, is there something else I need to do?

Hi,

I have the same problem with PhotoMosaic (Really nice, great job!) and Jackbox. I tried to set the onReady Callback, but that didn’t work. Do you know another solution?

Falco

makfak

What was the code you used in the onReady Callback? Using this page on JackBox’s site it looks like you should be all set if you set your onReady Callback to…

function($mosaic, $items){
    jQuery.jackBox.available(function() {
        $items.jackBox("init");
    });
}

If you view-source on the above page (scroll to the bottom) you’ll see a bunch of examples of JackBox calls. Just be aware that the examples on that page use jQuery(".jackbox[data-group]") to create a jQuery collection of the images in the gallery and PhotoMosaic provides that as the $items variable.

Anything else JackBox may need in order to take a collection of images and show them in a lightbox is, hopefully, covered in the documentation that came with your JackBox download. Good luck.

Default-user

Thank you for the fast reply! Well.. i didnt do anything in the onReady Callback. I just unchecked everthing and nows it works. But now i have a new problem: When i open a picture in de new lightbox, the whole galerie get all weird in the background (looks like pictures disappear) . Even when i close the lightbox again, the galerie will stay all weird. Then i have to refresh the whole page again, to get it normal again. Can you help me with this problem?

Can you provide a link to a page where I can see the problem happening? If you don’t want to post the link publicly, the form on my author page emails me directly.

Hey I think the plugins awesome!

really like it, i’ve just started playing around with wordpress on a new site, one issue im having is that it fills the right hand of the screen however the left side still has a white gap on the left of it? I was wondering if you could tell me if this was a setting in the plugin or the wordpress sorry if its such a s basic question. You can see the issue here http://www.boomhutrecords.org/gallery-2/

makfak

You’ve placed your mosaic in a responsive container (that can be smaller than 1200px) and you’ve set the width of your mosaic to 1200px. The mosaic is spilling over the edge of the container because it’s wider than the container (as per your settings).

If you want PhotoMosaic to adjust to the width of the mosaic to the container in which it’s been placed you should set the width to “0” (auto).

You can read more about this in the notes that appear directly below the “Width” setting in your PhotoMosaic admin.

How does this work with foobox?

makfak

PhotoMosaic and Foobox work well together. PM is flexible and be integrated in a number of ways; how, exactly, depends on how you choose to configure Foobox. Lightbox integration is covered in the FAQs that come with your download.

Hi,

I am trying to use a lightbox called fresco. According to the documentation from fresco I need to assign a class=”fresco” to each image. <a href="image.jpg" class="fresco">....</a>

Can I somehow add the class=”fresco” as default to all the images displayed ?
