Hi, why do not you show me this tag (Invalid data – check your URL)? thx https://www.flickr.com/photos/tags/embalseelyeso
Flickr changed their tags URL schemem then my plugin was seeing it as an user and failing.
I’ll release an update in next minutes. Many thanks for notifying this
Hi, Great Work but I do have a problem here. The Admin Interface on Self-Hosted Wordpress is really slow loading the images to select. I checked the HTML and it looks like the Admin Interface is loading the full size images, my full size images are real full size. I would like to see the Admin interface to use the smaller images also used in the Media Menu on the left side of the WP Admin interface. Looking forward to see this in a next version.
in settings you find an option to use Thumbnails in admin.
Me too, sometimes I’m under a superslow italian connection, then would take ages to load everything without this option
Same in France, perfect! thanks for the quick reply, worth an update of my “Support extension” here!
Merci beaucoup Vincent!
Hello. I Have a prebuying question. I see from the demo that your slider galleries do not show the total no of images. Is there anyway to add it or implement it? I need to be able to show the total no of images in slider gallery.
yes, you’re right. Actually counter IS in the slider, but Ive hidden it.
I next major release I’ll probably add an option to show it. But also you just need few CSS lines to achieve so.
I’ll be obviously glad to give you the code once purchased
Also one more question. in lightbox changing image shows loader in between. Is there anyway to make it instantaneous so that there is no loader. Like the swiping on mobiles.
You see preloader because images haven’t been loaded yet. My lightbox (and I suppose everyone else) preloads previous and next images to avoid waiting times navigating through images.
Hi there, just a pre purchase question. Does this plugin work ok with the DIVI builder (Elegant themes)?
you just have to insert a text block and insert a GlobalGallery shortcode within
I bought this plugin some time ago and I noticed that on recent updates, when you open a gallery, the height is larger to show all the pictures inside the gallery but when you close it, it doesn’t stretch back up (auto height). I noticed that it used to work on older versions but not on the most recent ones. Could you please help me with this?
Hello, could you please give me a link to check?
Hello I would be interested in your plugin my question is: can you add navigation filters to the top of the gallery, keeping them always active in the gallery page itself? I do not think I’ve been clear but I try
i filtri sulle singole gallerie al momento non ci sono. Ho intenzione di inserire una sorta di ricerca basata sui tags, ma niente a che vedere coi filtri del mio Media Grid per esempio.
Puoi filtrare le gallerie se usi le Collections però.
Will this plugin work with buddypress, rtmedia, and Media Library Assistant?
you can surely insert galleries in BuddyPress but there’s no support to rtMedia (is the first time I hear about it, but suppose it uses a standalone images directory).
While Media Library Assistant uploads images into WP media library, then you’ll be able to fetch them through Global Gallery (but obviously not to use its filters).
Back end has become practically unusable with Global Gallery activated. Meaning, Slow, Slow, Slow.
Any clues? Not sure if this began prior to or after the latest WP update to 4.8.3
WP latest ypdate surely doesn’t matter. I should check directly and inspect to know more.
But you should extend your support entitlement and open a ticket http://support.lcweb.it
Hi, Just wanna ask 1 question, does this plugin take proper advantage of srcset for showing high resolution retina images or if that feature doesn’t come in built, if I use it with WP Retina 2X plugin, will it take advantage of that?
plugin automatically calculates maximum image sizes to be shown (through the parameter in settings). Then there’s no need to create multiple images.
While lightboxes show fullsize image
I have created a gallery using Global Gallery Album with auto-population after an hour, all works fine but just wondering, is that possible for a gallery to detect and insert images automatically from newly created subfolders within the parent folder of the gallery.
galleries are created on a single folder. Auto-population will read new images, but not in subfolders
Thank you for a quick response.
Actually, my user keeps their newly created images into new subfolders.
Wondering If you can please give me a quick hint to achieve this functionality.
Would highly appreciate.
Are you using “Global Gallery albums” isn’t it?
Yes I am using Global Gallery albums, any help would be highly appreciated.
When I asked you this I was thinking to a recursive solution to fetch subfolders. But I was forgetting about gallery basepath.
It is set to the main folder and used for every image. Then is totally impossible to use subfoldes, I’m sorry
Hi, I just have 1 bug report and 1 feature request/alternate way to ask here:
1. Global Gallery has an issue with Photobox lightbox, i.e. when this lightbox is enabled and the thumbnail show option is enabled as well, Photobox doesn’t show any thumbnail. I’ve checked the source code as well, no thumbnail is getting included in the HTML. Please fix this issue.
2. Photobox by default comes with an event where is you scroll your mouse, it will zoom in/out of the image, which is super annoying. This can be easily disabled by passed zoomable: false in your lightboxes.php file line no 411. But the problem is that if I directly add this value to that file, in future when I will update the plugin, it will overwrite that change. Any idea on how to fix/implement this?
1- You’re right. I’m just managing a major GG update. I will be sure it will be fixed on that release
2- nice point for an official new option in settings
Thanks for considering it. There is just a couple more things I need to tell you, right now I’m just somehow fixing this with css display none, but thought I should share it with you as a developer to another developer.
1. Right now there is no option to disable showing the image name, description etc. Yes you can change the colors but cannot disable it from the settings. For example lets say I have a collection called wedding. Now I want to show the collection name in the main overlay, but when the user clicks on the collection and the gallery loads up, I don’t want to show the main overlay, just the secondary overlay. Right now the only way to do this is via CSS.
2. When the lightbox shows up, the image name and the number also shows up, there is no settings to disable them as well, so again CSS display none.
Also can you please let me know when you push this major update? As I have no idea when you are planning to release it.
Another bug report, this time with the Carousel. Well the problem is that it is not actually responsive. You see it works fine on a large screen (>=1200px) or in small screen like phones. But lacks in all other screen size like ipad, small laptops etc. I’ve created a Carousel with instagram images with 8 image to show in 1 row. Now when I view it in a phone, it shows 1 image at a time as it should due to responsiveness. But When I’m seeing it in iPad or iPad Pro, each image looks like a slice of image. Even on small laptops it doesn’t look quite good. I’m giving screenshots here:
iPad Pro: https://i.imgur.com/1aAfPUC.jpg
Laptop with HiDPI Screen: https://i.imgur.com/LawPXV6.jpg
Laptop with MDPI Screen: https://i.imgur.com/mf0e8BK.jpg
Laptop with Touch: https://i.imgur.com/GJy6SPt.jpg
This is how it looks on a phone in landscape mode: https://i.imgur.com/p4qbp1J.jpg
Anyway you got the point. I think the main reason for this is that we as users are specifying the number of images will show up in one row, instead in a true responsive system, it should be set to auto and based on the screen size it will decide how many images can be shown in one row.
I will be really glad if you fix this too. Thank you.
Not a bug but an approximative implementation on this side.
I have to be honest, among the huge amount of GG elements, I totally forgot about this.
Basically actually if slider goes under 480px, it will automatically scale to 1 image per column. I have to find a way to dynamically set it. And is not easy at all, since GG elements can be placed in any container.
I’ll see what I can do, but will be surely improved. Thanks for the report
Hi, i can completely understand what you are saying and the complicacy behind it. But again I still think you should not ask user for the number of images that will show up in a row, instead as you are already using js heavily you can do something like this: first using the js to get the width of the container. Lets say it is 1980 px then get the width of the image provided by the user in the short code lets say it is 200px now add the padding/margin to the right of the image lets say it is 6 px. So, the total width of one image comes 206px. No of image can be put in the container = 1980/206 = floor(9.6) = 9.
Just an idea out of my mind. Hope this helps. Can you please keep me posted when this gets fixed?
You’re good on projecting side!!
My idea was just this: read the wrapper’s width and set breakpoints. However I still have to ask how many columns you want by default. Probably I’ll ask also minimum images width.
I use a better system in masonry layout: ask for columns and minimum width. Then calculate in real time how many columns to show. But here I have to play slick.js rules (the plugin used for carousel) that works setting breakpoints.
I’m gonna see how slick reacts. Can’t say what is gonna work
Well, IMO I don’t think it’s wise to ask for the number of columns a user wanna show and here is why. Let’s say I’m on a 27” Full HD monitor developing and testing stuffs and at this stage I think max 8 columns are just fine, but then when the site goes live someone opens it up on a 52” 4K TV and at that resolution it can have maybe 14 columns but I will never know that as I can’t possible test on every screen in this world. So, it is wiser to decide that in code about how many images to show rather than asking the user for it. But asking for minimum width is good.
“You’re good on projecting side!! :)”
- Thank you
Uhm.. maybe I can work with “max images width”. Interesting..
But there’s a major issue then: retrocompatibility. Thousands customer with columns shortcode are a big hassle to manage.
I don’t understand what do you mean by “Thousands customer with columns shortcode are a big hassle to manage” -
Do you mean the column parameter that gets passed to the GG shortcode or are you talking about the column shortcode plugin, if it is the earlier, then you can just keep the column variable in your shortcode but don’t use it and instead calculate using the max image width as you said or you can create a new segment called Smart Carousel and keep the old carousel as it is. Then in the update notice tell the users that the old Carousel will be deprecated in near future and ask them to update to the Smart Carousel. This this way you can hit 2 birds with 1 stone.
You are suuuuper advanced comparing to the average customer. Would be easy to just ignore it, but changing calculation system means just one thing for me: having to deal with tons of support and 1-star ratings
Anyway, I’ll try to find a workaround. Maybe keep the columns field and add a new parameter. It’s a big mess, but I’ll find a way hopefully.
Just keep in mind that GG has got too many parameters actually, most of my customers don’t even know what options means. The average customer just want to install, press “play” and have a working plugin.
And this creates a lot of problems when it comes to create advanced features..!
I completely understand. But this problem must needs to be resolved else it will never be truly responsive. Now think if a average user find out that the Carousel is behaving in this way on tablets, small screens or large screens, I think they will give even more 1 starts as the name of the plugin also has “Wordpress Responsive Gallery” in it but that one Carousel is not being responsive at all. I hope you will understand.
Just let me elaborate, we will see what is going to be in v5.6!
Now is on my list, then I won’t surely forget about it
Hi, today I’ve implemented the instagram carousel (100% responsive) with the combination of instafeed.js + OWL Carousel + the logic I told you yesterday + Photobox (Thanks to GG as it already includes the file I didn’t have to include them myself). Just wanted to tell you that it is working as expected.
Hi, today I found another issue with the GG Collection. The problem is with it’s height. Let me explain, let’s say in a page I have 2 collection, one of them have 6 images and the other has 10 images. Now when the page loads the height of the gg_collection_wrap container is based on how many collection it is showing. Now lets say I click on any of the collection and it loads all the images via ajax and make the container height as per it’s need. Till this point everything is fine.
Now if I click on the Back to Collection button it takes me back to the list of collection page but the height of the wrapper remains what it was while showing the images in the collection. This is super annoying as it leaves a huge white space below the collection segment.
Now if it is a small laptop or tablet or phone this become and huge blank scrolling problem. Also this problem is not specific to any particular screen size rater for all. Please fix this issue. This is super annoying.
Looking forward to your reply on this,.
collections sizing issues should be solved months ago. Have you got a link to let me check?
This comment is currently being reviewed.
Understood. Well, I think you are discovering all the weaknessees
Hehehe… Not really. Well when it comes to development and coding I’m an insanely meticulous person and cannot rest until my work is 100% perfect so, these things just catches my attention during testing on various devices. Don’t take me wrong GG is one of the best gallery plugin out there in terms of front end UI and UX. I didn’t find any other plugin that show collections on the same page used ajax as beautifully as GG that makes me want to have the plugin as pixel perfect as possible and that is why I’m reporting these things to you so that you can fix it and trying my best to give you as much info as possible so that you can easily identify and fix. I’m really sorry if you take it any other way or it make you feel bad. That was never my intention.
I mean.. I’m a terrible perfectionist too. Then I’m not happy whenever a glitch is found.
However this is surely the way to go to get better and better. Then, welcome detailed notifications like this
I know I should not be asking this, but can you give me a timelike by when the photobox issue and this collection issue can be fixed so that I can plan the release of the site after that. Also please remove the site link I have shared earlier, envato is not letting me edit that reply.
Looking forward to your reply.
I’ve reported your past comment since is the only way to hide the URL (I can’t edit texts)
Timeline.. well.. I’d like to release the new update before Christmas. However if support (amd your replies ) continues to hit so hard.. is difficult to focus on development.
Is a major release, big things are involved
No Problem. I don’t think I have anything else to report here. So you are good from my end
I have global gallery installed on my website and i i can notice that when i add masonry gallery through enfold it is not displayed. But when i deactivate your plugin is shown perfectly. Please advice
I should check directly, but you have to renew your support entitlement and open a ticket
i ‘ve just renewed the license. By the way why did i have to purchase the plugin again in order to renew my license? Shouldn’t there be a fee only for the license renewal??
There should be a command on the product page (right sidebar) to just renew your support entitlement.
Please open a ticket giving me a link to check http://support.lcweb.it
Got a quick question about Cache Interval.
Is it best to just set it to ‘Never’ if I’m fetching image albums from Flickr and I don’t expect to change those albums much at all?
Or should I leave it at 1 week as I have them all right now?
Thanks in advance for your response.
is surely better to leave it to “never”. There will be zero impact on the server
Thank you. Will go forward experimenting to see what the outcome is if any.
Have a lot of galleries all pulling lots of images from Flickr…and they were all set to 1 week. I wonder if it caused any of the caching problems I’ve been having.
Will report back here.
Thank you do this good photo album plugin, I love your google+ photos !!
I created some new albums after I update wordpress to 4.9 ver, and the galleries still only show the latest one…how can I resolve it..? >>https://i.imgur.com/Da1h1ri.jpg
and I can’t find the reset buttom to reset the settings…how do I reset the setting ?
Thank you very much 。･ﾟ･(つд`ﾟ)･ﾟ･
Hello, your support entitlement expired, then I can only give you a quick support.
That screen is totally managed by WordPress and galleries are a custom post type.
Then I have only two possible explanations: galleries have been deleted or you are using a multilingual plugin and you created only a gallery under that language.
Hey, are you not running and black friday discounts on this plugin? I thought I will get another license on this black friday deal.
no, I have got Swift Box and FontPress discounted though
Yah! I have seen was hoping for Global Gallery to be in that list too.
It is already super cheap if you think how many features it has
I do agree with you. Anyways looking forward to the big update with all the fixes.
I want customization. Send me email address or link so that I explain my custom variations. Thanks.
please use my profile form https://codecanyon.net/user/lcweb#contact
Thanks. I have already done that. Waiting for your response.
Hi LCWeb, Hi, I bought the Global Gallery plug-in, I was able to install it without any problem but at the moment of activating it, error 500 appears in Frontend and Backend. I have WP 4.9.1 and in PHP 7, I can help myself. I do not know what causes this error.
Fatal error: Cannot redeclare gg_vc_num_unit_field() (previously declared in /home/wwwcarnet/public_html/wp-content/plugins/global-gallery/builders_integration/visual_composer.php:395) in /home/wwwcarnet/public_html/wp-content/plugins/global-gallery/builders_integration/visual_composer.php on line 395
seems like the plugin is being activated twice. The error reports a doubled function.
Please try removing (being sure it is truly removed from plugins folder in your wp-contents/plugins folder) and reinstalling it
i would like to know if you have full rtl support that means that when i add a image to a gallery it will show on the right side of the screen, not on the left side?
there aren’t specific codes in the version you can download. However I’m finishing Global Gallery v6 that will have better RTL integration.
And since I’m developing it and codes are “fresh”, I can work side-by-side with you to reach a proper RTL layouts compatibility.
Which layouts will you use?
