I need a lightbox gallery – launched by a single image. (i need more than one of this per page…)

is that possible with your plugin? (source: nexgen gallery o. a folder o.s.)

epicplugins

The plugin works as per the demo site :)

Hi,

On my theme (one of the most popular on theme forest), there’s a built in light box and I need it. However I’d like to use your plugin for my main picture section. The problem is when I click a photo, the photo appear twice, is there a solution?

epicplugins

You would have to check whether your theme lets your disable the lightbox on only you main picture section.

It’s not something covered by support for Social Gallery – there’s the function to turn SG off on any pages you don’t want it to apply but we cannot control the theme lightbox – sorry

Cheers

i have this problem with the lightbox plugin social gallery:

the lightbox images should be circling in a loop. after the last image > clicking next arrow button > should appear the first image again.

its not working when i have more than one gallery per page using lightboxes. (example: justidied image grid using nextgen galleries) its NOT a problem of the gallery tools. its a lightbox setting.

how can i fix that? thanks

epicplugins

Hi

Currently relational galleries (i.e. multi per page) is not something covered due to the way Social Gallery Pages interact with the lightbox.

We recommend only have one gallery per page rather than multiple anyway

i am using newspaper theme; http://themeforest.net/item/newspaper/5489609

if you want i can give panel information to check it; but the theme is very popular for newspapers. Created september 2013 and last updated 21 march 2014

epicplugins

I was just wondering if the slow down still occured on a WordPress.org team’s theme… despite newspaper theme being popular on here WordPress.org team’s themes are the industry standard

It may be that the answer is yes, it’s also slow on 2012 and I suspect this is due to the number of images in your library and SG looking for the single image URLs for images on a particular page

Default-user

What do you think; how can i fix it? it is possible to close image library or adjust some options on SG, or the other options?

epicplugins

It’s a tricky one I’m afraid – it’s something I’m considering in the next update but to keep you in the loop

1.) Lots of images mean SGP on page load finds any images that have been scanned (and logged) as being on that page and outputs them into the sgi var = [] on the page (view source you’ll see this is full of image info)

2.) It needs these URLS for full og:meta sharing i.e. so it shares the correct image and title etc (Social Gallery Pages)

However it does mean with lots of images this may slow down the page load.

The other option is on image view, have it query the DB for the images and populate the array that way (rather than on all images) but it would mean the first image may load slower than usual.

Final option is to rethink the SG pages however it’s very difficult to do while still sharing the correct information on FB.

It’s one of the main things I’m due to look at in v4.0

epicplugins

Does the speed improve when you disable SG Pages and choose imageURL as fallback?

hi, I activated SG again, and adjusted some options on SG. I disabled SG pages and some javascript options and now the website is opening fast but the admin panel is still getting opened slowly?

epicplugins

Shouldn’t impact the admin panel

Default-user
groosy Purchased

I don’t know how it is possible, but when deactived SG, admin panel is getting faster than… but the web site speed is looking good when it is activated SG.

epicplugins

I’m not sure to be honest, no one has reported it before and I’ve not noticed it myself

Default-user

Now I deactivated all plugins and just activated SG, but admin panel is still so slowly when try to make any actions, how about try to old version SG, maybe it will work, how about you?

Default-user

I tried the old version but it is same problem that the wp admin page opens so slow; how can we fix it; I wan to use this plugin on my website..

epicplugins

I dont know sorry I’ve not seen any issues before – I’ll add it to the list to look into for the next update

ok, also thanks your patience and support, best

hi, just I want to tell you, I solved the wp admin panel why it is slow because of internet connection… it uses some firewall stuff so it is just about it, there is no any problem.. thanks again.

I have this very annoying message in the backend “A new version of Social Gallery has been released! Get version 3.1”

So I follow the link, I download plug-in, and I install it.

I now have two Social Plug-ins installed: Social Gallery Version 2.2 | By StormGate

Social Gallery Version 3.8.4 | By Mike

The message is still there.

Two questions: Do I need both plug-ins? How do I get rid of this annoying message in my backend?

Thank you.

epicplugins

Just delete version 2.2…....

Hi,

I really like your plugin and just wanted to know how easy it would be to implement it with another plugin I have shown below:

http://codecanyon.net/item/all-around-wordpress-content-slider-carousel/5266981

Thanks

epicplugins

Hi

You will be able to run both plugins fine – the plugin above is a slider plugin for content though.

Social Gallery will work fine for galleries, single images etc as per the examples

I want to make a gallery with several albums with sub-albums. Is it possible? For example: Ford is an album, with a sub-album of Mustang with sub-sub album of Mustang V8. Can one do that?

epicplugins

Hi

Social Gallery Photo Viewer is a lightbox – you’re thinking about display for this use something like Justified Image Grid or NextGen

It’s not something that Social Gallery does – Social Gallery just VIEWS the images in an amazing Lightbox

Hello,

There are days I’m trying to set up the Social Gallery, but without success.

Installed and configured according to the manual. errors:

1) The plugin does not share the correct picture on facebook, or load an image at random.

2) Integration error with the Justify Image Grid

3) No title list and description of the shared image

4) There are serious conflicts with the OpenGraph AllinOne SEO or Yoast

I’ve tried switching to a basic theme again and it still fails.

Hi please submit support via our support portal

Also – please review your rating of this plugin.

They are NOT bugs, it’s just that you’ve not set things up correctly.

It is wrong to rate something one star just because you haven’t set it up corretly and not opened a support ticket either.

I bought the plugin and configured it here but it is not working?

http://beta.mjnewsnetwork.com/

The lightbox opens and then closes quickly

epicplugins

We have answered via the support portal

The problem is you’re linking images to a page and not an image

Hi,

Now I am using wp gallery on my website; the social gallery has been working perfect; just I need to make one thing that how to show image description on SG for every image one by one. I checked encode html info on SG website but I didn’t get any point; it is really complex; at least for me.

Is there any easy way to add wp image description to SG?

Cheers.

Will this plugin work by itself to show facebook galleries on my Wordpress pages, or do I have to have other items in the bundle to use it?

We update our Facebook portfolio really regularly and have albums for each of our designs (business cards, websites, etc.) – so we just want to create a page on our website and call in those galleries so we only have to update them in one place. Will the gallery on our site update when we add new stuff on facebook?

Thank-you.

epicplugins

Hi

You can do what you want to achieve using Justified Image Grid + Social Gallery.

One thing to be aware of is the likes + comments from Social Gallery will be against your own website (whereas the images on Facebook will accrue likes + comments independently)

The plugin will open images you tell it to, via either one of the presets or the CSS selector settings

I am so frustrated! I’ve gone through your video 3 times and followed your directions. Created a test gallery and the stupid images have none of your social features AT ALL and when I click out of the lightbox everything but the heading and footer of my page disappears. Been at this for TWO HOURS. I even went and bought the shortcode plugin to make it “easier” and it doesn’t make a damn bit of difference.

WTH?!@?

Hi

Have you tested on the 2012 theme and ensured you’ve switched the settings to ON not OFF

Hi,

How can show my existing Facebook gallery via social gallery on our website? I couldn’t find any configuration to do that.

If I’m not mistaken, this plugin will allow me to show all of album in Facebook on Wordpress site and leave comments and post likes.

I would appreciate your advice.
