Hello, is there a way to make all the elements in the JIG to open in a separate window / tab when clicked? Something like

Kind regards!

Yeah you can do that. Trick is that the lightbox will include the site all over again (the menu, sidebar etc). You need to have a way to strip all that from the pages’ (posts’) layout. http://justifiedgrid.com/sources/wordpress/recent-posts-pages/ “Opening just the content in the lightbox” I have a custom page template (PHP file I could send you that only shows the content) but it’s only applicable if you are using “pages” and if you are not showing them anywhere outside the JIG lightbox-iframe. In any other case it’s going to be tricky. It can work with a custom post type too.

Awesome, I’ll take a look into it. Kind regards

Hello! I have another question regarding this plugin (which is awesome by the way), Is there a way to use a fallback image for the featured image? Just in case a user tries to upload a pdf file for that field or another file type which is not compatible with the featured image field.

Kind regards!

We are seeing some stretching of the video preview thumbnails for a YouTube feed. How can we stop the stretching of the thumbs?

Here is what I see https://snag.gy/C9bNDG.jpg I just emailed you the link

Hello Sir, I’ve happily bought your plugin due to all your kind answers to my previous questions. I just have one more. Bascially I want to use your plugin for an artist website. She has various artwork (let’s say 100 paintings, 10 categories, 10 paintings per categorie). I will use Nextgen Gallery as a source for galleries. Each category would be a Wordpress page where I would display a JIG photowall with all her artwork filtered by category, a click would enlarge the picture and get it bigger. But then, thanks to caption details, I’d like also to include a link to another page that would display the artwork with additional information (for better SEO, each painting would have its own page and detailed information). To display only the considered picture do you suggest me JIG or can I also display the picture coming from nextgen with a nextgen shortcode ? Thank you !

It’s up to you. JIG can serve single images well enough: http://justifiedgrid.com/sources/nextgen-gallery/single-picture/

I recommend putting the link that points to the picture’s own page, to the desciption of the photo. So the link is there when you open the photo from the gallery. Links in thumbnail captions are only supported using the “below” caption style.

Did I answer your question?

Yes, thank you ! I think PrettyPhoto or PhotoSwipe are great alternatives for showing the thumbnails with custom links. They have beautiful effects. I love this, I think I’m gonna spend some time making all the adjusts but the result will worth it :) Thank you :):

Hi there, is it possible to display a ‘gallery’ of categories and taxonomies? Not posts within the category but rather the category links themselves.

Eg. Food Gallery shows all taxonomies within a custom post-type Food Types. Custom image or feature image of any post in the category with a link to the relevant archive template and using category name as the title.

We use the ‘categories images’ plugin to manually assign images to each category and taxonomy and tags.

Any help or ideas would be grateful. Cheers :)

With NextGEN it’s possible: http://justifiedgrid.com/sources/nextgen-gallery/tag-albums/ Otherwise I’m afraid not. Unless you manually link to category pages from some images with custom links http://justifiedgrid.com/features/custom-links/

Hi Firsh ! I have an issue. When I reduce the size of my desktop screen or on my mobile phone, some pictures of my grid just disapear. It does that on the preset 8 but not on the preset 16, but I need to use both. Can you tell me how to fix that? Thank you very much

My license starts with 79eb996a-6550-4ff0-93fa…

Hi Firsh, can you help me please :)

Hi, I can’t find like that license in the autoupdate database. Check your max rows setting.

Dear Firsh, I have one more question. On this example page : (http://justifiedgrid.com/lightboxes/photoswipe/) you show a thumbnail named “Sunflower” with “four different WordPress image metadata fields: title, description, caption, alt text. Display them in four different locations: two on the thumbnail, and two in PhotoSwipe!”. But of course this assumes I use WP Media Library as a source. In fact I am using Nextgen. So I know Nextgen only allows two caption fields as stated here : (http://justifiedgrid.com/sources/) : Title and Description only. So I thought I could use a plugin named NextGen Custom Fields, to add a custom field name “Alternate” so I could use “Alternate” field as a caption, for instance to put a different caption on my thumbnail and in the lightbox (the thumbnail would not display a HTML link while the details in the lightbox would do). However, with the shortcode editor, I tried either putting “Alternate” in the field caption_field=alternate , and I tried also custom field with the name written “Alternate” but non would work. It seems like NEXTGen custom fields is only used for “custom links”, but not to add a third or a fourth caption to NextGen that seems limited to two. Do you think it there is a possibility to do it or would it need a plugin update ? Using NextGen Gallery makes it simple but being limited to only 2 caption fields instead of 4 is not as flexible. It would be great if that could be done :-) Thank you !

Hi, yes NGG CF is only used for custom links for now. Good suggestion, but it would take an update. Custom field with the name written “alternate” or however you named the custom field would be my goal.

Another option is to consider Real Media Library to replace NextGEN with. It uses WP media library but works similarly well if not better than NG. http://justifiedgrid.com/sources/wp-real-media-library/

Nairolf

Thank you, it’s true, but Real Media is quite expensive just for handling media into folders. I think your plugin is better value :) NG is quite useful for the moment, I’ll stick to it unless I find another free plugin like RML, anyway, thanks a lot.

Firsh

Firsh Author

It does much more than that when combined with JIG, it can completely replace NG. NG starts with a handicap, having to set up a different library than WP media library. Anyway it’s up to you.

I added your request to my todo, so check changelogs for future updates.

Hi :)

Hope you are well … I am having the same problem again with JIG not working with WP Touch 4 … I tried applying the temporary PHP file you sent me in April this year, but it doesn’t seem to work.

The iphone page is www.balstonagius.co.uk/new and my licence starts with dd8fbc8e…

Hi, it says under construction. What was the problem about? Sorry I don’t remember what that temporary PHP was for. The new version likely overridden any temporary fixes.

Hello, when I want to show the gallery via an iFrame, the gallery height is 0px. Since I use a javascript function to call a variable height to the iFrame container.

Is there any solution for this problem?

Gallery: http://www.redbullkopoverkop.nl/2016/fotos/ iFrame website: http://www.redbull.com/nl/nl/bike/events/1331808816380/test

Hope you can help me.

Thanks in advance.

Call/run this script inside the iframe scope after you changed its height: http://justifiedgrid.com/support/fix/the-element-is-invisible-or-too-thin-or-the-grid-seems-off-and-misaligned/ it’ll (re)init the gallery.

What is the relation of the test page to the gallery? What do I click or where should the gallery be? If the iframe gallery will open a lightbox, it’ll be just contained inside the iframe.

The relation of the test page is that the gallery will show up on it via iFrame. You can find it by the section ‘Foto’s’. This script adds height to the iFrame section as you can see above the section ‘Foto’s’. The script can’t measure the height of the JIG gallery and returns a height of 0. Hope you can help us out. Thanks. (The script: http://www.redbullkopoverkop.nl/2016/wp-content/themes/rbkok/js/main.js)

Why load it via an iframe? I’m afraid unless you know what height it’ll be, it’s not easy. Also if you take into account the responsive design.

There is a min height setting in JIG that sets a height even before loading. You could make the script wait (don’t just fire it on ready), measure the gallery and set the iframe height again and again (with every resize too).

Does that script run inside the iframe or outside it? Perhaps if parent window is resized, the iframe isn’t. You’d need to pass the parent’s resize event to the iframe (trigger resize with jQuery there too). JIG reacts to resize events and recalculates the grid, so that helps with the responsive thing.

Hello, I am having issues whereby the number of images on JIG gallery changes pretty much every time the page is refreshed.

For example page has 13 images, on refresh shows 11, then may show 5 etc

I can see images are missing when ‘Error checking’ is set to ‘No’ but a missing image may then suddenly appear again on a page refresh.

Also images show in random order no matter what I set.

I tried various steps as outlined in your troubleshooting but not getting anywhere unfortunately.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

It’s likely that your server can’t keep up with serving the thumbnails. What hosting are you on? Try Jetpack plugin and enable its Photon module.
