Hi! How can I customize the deeplinking URL on filters?

So, I have the gallery at mysite.com/gallery It shows all images. Above, I have the “categories” (the different folder names from the backend) If I enable deeplinking on filters the URL is not SEO or user-friendly.

I want to have it in this form: mysite.com/gallery/category1 , but it shows: mysite.com/gallery/#(autogrid-grid-5a2027e8e81b5|filter)=.category1;

Can you please tell me where and what to edit?

Thank you!

Hello,
Unfortunately is not possible to customize the deeplinking feature, in a future update I’m planning to simplify it to something like #filter=Category 1 but would still need to use the hash (#) since I can’t interfere with the site normal navigation

Meanwhile if you don’t like it you can turn it off with this setting: https://imgur.com/a/0jTuV6m

Hi! Each time I update the plugin (now it is on the latest version) all my images and folders are deleted and replaced with the ones from the demo under this path: wp-content/plugins/wp_auto_grid/galleries/gallery Can you fix this? I had to delete the demo ones and recreate mine manually each time… thank you!

Hello,
You are correct, when you remove the plugin it removes the directory “wp_auto_grid” which contains the galleries folder, I would suggest to place the galleries in a different directory, maybe directly under wp-content, for example:

wp-content/galleries/gallery
and then in your gallery settings, just change the path like this:
../../galleries/gallery
so now your galleries are not deleted when removing the plugin :)

I hope this makes sense

Best, David

Unfortunately, it is not possible. The directory cannot be changed. The path is: /wp-content/plugins/wp_auto_grid/galleries/gallery but only the ”/galleries/gallery” part can be changed, the rest is impossible to edit.

Indeed, you currently have this:
galleries/gallery
just replace it for this:
../../galleries/gallery
and that’s it, with the ../ you can navigate back

Let me know if this makes sense

Hi, I noticed there’s like a photo count limitation. I checked that up to 1300 photos (in different folders) everything is fine for the same gallery, but if I add more ones then blank page appears on frontend webpage. Could you tell me if I’m right? If I’m wrong (no photo count limitation), why can’t add more? Best regards, Diego

Hello Diego,
The plugin doesn’t have a limitation, by any chance the new images have some special characters on their names?

Best, Dasvid

Hi David, there’re no special characters. All the images have the same name + different number. It’s a generic problem because there’s the same problem even if I change the n+1 image (it works up to “n” images).

Diego

Hi Diego,
Can you show me a living example online? you can contact me privately via email here: https://codecanyon.net/user/castleplugins#contact

is there is any option to enable “Download” button on each photo .. ? i wanna use it as photo deliver for my clients ..and they can’t download images on their smart phones

Hello,
This feature doesn’t come by default, but by modifying a line of JS code you can activate a “download” button in the lightbox (fancybox)

I hope this helps

Best, David

hey,

your plugin does not support the possibility to share the images in a gallery via Facebook ect. ?

Hi,
by default the plugin doesn’t have this option, but there’s a way to activate something like this in Fancybox (the popup), to do that, you would need to open the class_auto_grid_shortcode.php file and add this line of code: https://imgur.com/a/rZFp0Kd

I hope this helps :)

Hello, i have paid for this plugin and install it to my wp but still something missing to play site online… This what i see in my wp admin page: Please help! Tank you!!!

The following themes are installed but incomplete.

Name Description __MACOSX Stylesheet is missing. wp_auto_grid Stylesheet is missing.

Hello,
This is quite strange, by any chance in the .zip file you are trying to upload there’s a __MACOSX folder or file? if so, try removing it

If still no luck, please contact me privately via email here: https://codecanyon.net/user/castleplugins#contact
I’ll be happy to install the plugin for you :)

Best, David

Hello!

I’ve been using the plugin for many years but I’m having an issue that me and my web developer have been unable to fix.

My website was migrated to a new server, and since, the Autogrid images are not displaying anymore. You can see on this page: https://zabou.me/street-art/ (under each date there should be images). I’ve been looking into what is causing the problem but I’m unlucky so far. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much for your time, Zabou – contact@zabou.me

Hi Z,
Strange, it still says “Forbidden”, can you try contacting your hosting provider and send them the link above so they can bypass that file, so is not blocked by the web server?

Best, David

Hi David, the web developer enabled direct PHP file access on the server and it’s now working – victory! Thanks for your help :)

glad it is working now :D

Hi,

I’ve been using Auto Grid Responsive Gallery on my website for many years… Just wonder how to update this plugin in Wordpress, since I don’t want to change anything on CSS or anything files that affects my styles. I know you can do it manually on the FTP server but I have no idea which files needs to update, last time I did the whole thing got mess up. I hope there is an easy way to update this.

Thanks

Aldo

Hi Aldo,
Happy to hear that you are still using it :)

It depends, which version of the plugin you are using, are you using the new version? (the one based on the Media Boxes) or are you using the old one (first version)?

Best, David

Thanks David…. I know I’ve not updated a least 3 years ago… so it must be the old version. So my guess I need to re-created with the new version?

Hi Aldo, the major update was on 2017, maybe you already on the new version, can you send me the link to your site so I can check it out?

hi. I have the auto grid gallery on a Wordpress page, but its not displaying. I believe I have images in the right folder and it should be working but I’m just getting a load more button.

https://railtrucks.com/gallery/

it is blank when I look at the template area. is there a chunk of code I could copy and paste into there?

yes, you can copy the code from here: https://www.castlecodeweb.com/wp-autogrid/documentation/#template

or you can also create a new gallery and copy the code from there (when you create a new gallery the “template area” has some content by default)

I hope this makes sense :)

Best, David

that worked. thanks,

Hello: I have purchased two licenses of your plugin, the truth is that it works very well, but I have a problem for some time now, and the error persists in all the templates I have tried … the problem is the following:

configure the gallery so that 7 columns are shown in full width and one less column always comes out and leaves a blank space on the right (where the seventh column should be) when more images are loaded it is rebuilt and there already if the 7 appear columns.

This can be solved because the 7 columns should always be seen.

I hope your help, thank you. Greetings

Hello,
thank you :)

it may be an issue with the scrollbar, try adding this peace of CSS:

body{
  overflow-y: scroll; 
}

if the issue persists can you show me a living example online? so I can take a look and see what’s going on.

Hello. Is the plugin compatible with Elementor

Hello,
the plugin is placed via shortcode, so yes, you can place the shortcode in elementor

Best, David

Thank you very much. I liked the plugin because of its function, fast photo viewer, zoom, very mobile. What you need now. A successful solution to the problem.

thank you :D

Hi! Thanks for the awesome plugin. It’s working great! Question: I have a gallery with multiple categories and a few items could feasibly fit into both categories…example: a project I made could qualify as both graphic design and web design. Is there a way to detect the duplication?

Thanks!

Hello,
thank you :D

Yes, there’s a feature for that purpose, lets imagine you have an image named Autumn.jpg under Category 1, if you want that image to be under Category 2 and Category 3 as well (without adding it again inside those folders) you would need to use the config.txt file, and inside that config.txt you can write something like this:

image           => Category 1/Autumnn.jpg
extra_filter    => Category 2, Category 3
so the Autumn.jpg image will be also found under category 2 and 3

If you haven’t use the config.txt file before, you can check how it works here: http://www.castlecodeweb.com/wp-autogrid/documentation/#conffile

I hope this makes sense

Hello dear

I order WordPress version but its run very slow maybe its my host problem, kindly would you share standalone version to try it , html , php …

sent you an email :)

Dear Sir, I bought WP Auto Grid which is a great plugin!

I have a request for a new feature. Is it possible to use the txt file to give WP Auto Grid the file paths to use in the gallery?

In my site there are Cosplayer galleries and the management with WP Auto Grid folders is excellent. For example: Cosplayer John has photos of three costumes: - Iron Man - Batman - Stormtrooper There is a “John” folder with three subfolders, with photos of the costumes.

Cosplayer Dave has two costumes: - Jocker - Iron Man There is a “Dave” folder with two subfolders, with photos of the costumes.

Now, I would like an “Iron Man” gallery with all the cosplayers who have an Iron Man costume. I have to take a photo from the “John / Iron Man” path and one from “Dave / Iron Man”.

I can manage a database with folder names and file names of photos. From this database with an “Iron Man” query I extract the file paths and create a .txt file:

image => John/Iron_Man/J-Photo001.jpg

image => Dave/Iron_Man/D-Photo001.jpg

WP Auto Grid should use the paths present in the file to create the gallery. Is it possible to add this to the plugin? How much would it cost?

Best regards Gianluca Rossi rossi2116@gmail.com

Hi Gianluca,
Yes, that would be possible, although it would required customizing the code and adding the option in the admin section

yes, I added a “clone” button in the admin (to clone the settings) you can send me a private message so I can send it to you to try it out, you can contact me here: https://codecanyon.net/user/castlecode#contact

Best, David

Hi David, popoup Fancybox buttons on top right, are not visible when user is login and wp admin bar in on. May you help me?

Best regards Gianluca

Hi Gianluca,
try adding this peace of CSS:

.fancyboxMB-container {
  z-index: 999999999999 !important;
}
Best, David

I asked if there was a limit per category and found out the answer was no. A related question: Is there a limit to the total number of photos that can be in the gallery? I have a gallery with 2842 photos that I am trying to make alphabetical categories. When I get to the letter M the gallery stops displaying. I can tolerate a long load given the number of photos but if there is a limit to the number of photos the gallery can support I will have to find a different solution. That would be unfortunate because this WordPress plugin would otherwise do everything I want.

I guess another related question is if there is a limit to the number of categories?

Hello,
Ohh I see, the plugin doesn’t have a limit in the total number either, but sometimes if the thumbnails are a little bit heavy browsers tend to lag when there are many images, can you show me a living example online? so I can take a look and see what’s going on? you can contact me privately via email here: https://codecanyon.net/user/castlecode#contact

Best, David

Is there a finite number of images that can be in any one category?

Hi,
the plugin doesn’t have a limit per category at the moment :)

Good evening, I wanted to know if with this plug-in it is possible to activate a lightbox gallery with a single image

Yes,
there’s an option in the admin settings named “Enable gallery for popup” which disables the next/prev buttons, so only a single image will show up in the lightbox

Best, David

Ok thanks, so I can insert a main photo for the album and when I click the lightbox opens with the other photos in the album inside?

Hi, ohh you meant a unique gallery in the light box per image in the grid, unfortunately the plugin doesn’t have this feature, it might be possible with the media boxes plugin but you would have to specify the HTML manually for all your images

Best, David

I am not able to change the shortcode or add more than 1 gallery. The shortcode is locked at [auto_grid id=”“]

Hello,
Very strange, can you send me a couple of screen shots of this? you can contact me privately via email here: https://codecanyon.net/user/castlecode#contact

Best, David

I sent you a private email through the link.

lets continue via email :)

Hello, there is a way to list picture, video frame, picture with external link, all together? Thanks

Hi,
Do you mean like this example? http://www.castlecodeweb.com/wp-autogrid/portfolio/# some images have video-iframe and others have just images

if so then yes, you can have in the same gallery a combination of that

Best, David

Hello, yes! It is also possible to add a shared social button to any single picture? Can I set a link for a single picture? Thank you again

Hello,
At the moment the plugin doesn’t have sharing social functionalities

And yes you can set a link for a single picture

Best, David
