Hi,

I just purchased the plugin but I can’t get to work. All images have failed to load and I do have a 400 bad request error http://www.massage-bangkok.net/wp-content/plugins/justified-image-grid/timthumb.php?src=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.massage-bangkok.net%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2017%2F01%2Fthai-girl-with-big-boobs.jpg&h=460&w=306&q=45&f=.jpg

I tried TimThumb & CDN settings 775, 755 and 777 but nothing works. Please help

Hey Firsh,

why doesn´t work this shortcode:

[justified_image_grid rml_id=1 rml_count=yes rml_lightbox_groups=no rml_description=yes]

See here https://www.overlandtour.de/bilder/afrika/

No folder open this in a new site and I can open /see the pics.

Cheers Jens

I’ve communicated the issue with RML’s developer (perhaps you also mentioned it to hime) and we’ll look into it. I had this occur once but I couldn’t reproduce the issue outside of the customer’s site. The URL is created by JIG yes, but RML is responsible for letting JIG know what to display, based on that path in the URL. It seems stuck on the parent object and not navigate into child objects.

Suddenly all my galleries have stopped working? I have them set to open in lightbox using JIG. No matter what settings I change it to the gallery opens up with a photo in a fullscreen black background with no way to advance photos and no way to close gallery. The same thing on mobile galleries. I used to be able to swipe and now the photos will not advance. I have not installed any new plugins. Could something have happened with the last wordpress update?

This would have been my reply due to “lightbox is skipped”: http://justifiedgrid.com/support/fix/old-jquery-js-not-loaded-lightbox-skipped-javascript-errors/

But glad it’s solved.

Hi Firsh,

Adding more images to my gallery, I have encountered a quite random error. Namely, I only change a small thing and suddenly the images won’t load anymore. I get this message: ‘There are no NextGEN images that could be displayed’. I have noticed that the problem occurs randomly when I change anything. For example, changing the order of the picture ID numbers that should be loaded, or adding an extra tag. Since it is so random I find it hard to determine what is causing this. I have tried putting less numers(picture ID’s) in, shuffeling them, removing tags, even changing the shortcode back to what it was doesn’t help. Only when I keep just one picture in sometimes it works again, somewhat. Do you have any suggestions?

This is my page currently: http://www.brendavanvugtart.com/portfolio/

Thanks in advance

Hi,

I replied to your email that you sent from the user you purchased JIG with, Brennu.

Hello, i have purchased WP Real media, and want do display content in frontend. Guess your plugin is the way to go:) If i use the following shortcode in this example: http://justifiedgrid.com/sources/wp-real-media-library/folders-and-top-level/ , and choose to start at a specific folder, and that folder includes folders with only documents like PDFs, Docx, etc. will i get a list of files? Or does this plugin only supports images?

Firsh

Firsh Author

Ok that’s fine. Unfortunately you will not be able to reuse the same icon for multiple downloads. Are you sure a gallery is what you need for this? If getting an image to represent each image is a hassle, why not use a plugin for file downloads that has nothing to do with images and thumbnails? JIG is better suited for images and videos.

Unless you are in for putting the downloads into folders (as in album-gallery relationships) perhaps is a better tailored solution for providing just a list of PDF downloads.

Thanks for your help, you could be right, i was just looking into your plugin because it seems to work excellent together with WP Real media i case of automatic displaying the tree-structure generated in WP Real media. But I’m diving into the API of WP Real media now to see if i could make this myself. Do you recommend any file downlad plugins i could take a look at?

Firsh

Firsh Author

Sorry I’m not familiar with other plugins. Yeah JIG works well with RML but it’s all for images and video basically. Using only RML is a great organization tool, for you, in the admin. Not sure how to show your downloads in a tree structured manner, the best way.

Try disabling the wp slimstat plugin temporarily please, it’s known to cause a similar issue.

Hi. Please let me know if there’s already a way to do this, but I am making this customization for a client (the one who purchased the plugin): - I want to do my own WP_Query to get a list of Post IDs to display in the “ids” shortcode argument - Since I didn’t see any available filters, I thought to use WordPress’ built-in https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/hooks/shortcode_atts_shortcode/ like this: add_filter( ‘shortcode_atts_justified_image_grid’, ‘my_function_name’, 10, 3 ); - However, I saw that your use of shortcode_atts() - https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/functions/shortcode_atts/ - is incorrect in that it doesn’t state the shortcode’s name at the end. - Therefore, I’m requesting that you fix this. Here’s an example: Line 9014 of /wp-content/plugins/justified-image-grid/justified-image-grid-core.php should be changed from: ), $atts)); to: ), $atts, ‘justified_image_grid’ ) );

You should do similar anywhere else shortcode_atts() is used.

It’d be so great if you could include this fix soon.

Thank you so much!

Hi, thanks for the suggestion, I’ll add it. It’s not incorrect, as it’s just an optional parameter. If you need the changed file before release, contact me from my profile and I’ll send you a link where to download it from.

hi !

I just bought the application and can not seem to work properly on my word press with page builder. I have deactivated page builder on the page, but once the photos are imported I can no longer edit and choose them. Is the plugin compatible with page builder? Is it possible to use the page builder module and the Justified Image Grid module?

thank you in advance

Firsh

Firsh Author

Which page builder do you use? JIG is compatible with Visual Composer, but has no dedicated module for others. You can always revert to normal editor just for the sake of creating a gallery. You don’t need to use the builders on every page.

Thank you for answer, i have Version 2.4.25 | by SiteOrigin on the WYNN template.

Firsh

Firsh Author

Well can you opt out from the builder on just those pages with JIG? Perhaps you would not want to add much content to those pages with JIG (if they are purely just gallery pages).

Hi i want to do a masonry effect is there a way to show featured image but hide the rest of that posts images until they click on it and it opens in like a lightbox etc?

Firsh

Firsh Author

Masonry effect and what you describe are 2 different things.

Yes you can hide the rest of the images after a cut off point and make those images available only in the lightbox. It’s called hidden limit.

Masonry: http://justifiedgrid.com/support/faq/is-pinterest-style-available-what-is-masonry/

But can the hidden limit, be used in conjunction with Masonry effect?

Firsh

Firsh Author

Yeah, see: http://justifiedgrid.com/presets/preset-10-hidden/

It doesn’t matter if you limit to x rows or 1 image or 10 images. The amount of thumbnails that still show, will use the standard automatic justified layout of JIG.

Hi Frish,

I’ve recently been getting a considerable amount of hits on: /wp-content/plugins/justified-image-grid/timthumb.php

That is causing my CPU usage to spike quite badly.

I am hosting with Siteground and use the latest version of JIG.

Any ideas why this could be?

Thanks in advance.

Firsh

Firsh Author

That’s reasonably normal since that’s how thumbnails get created. Once they are done, however, it’s less straining on the server. I usually advise combining your hosting with a CDN or at least the free CloudFlare. It recognizes created images and doesn’t poll the PHP file anymore so it won’t spike the CPU. http://justifiedgrid.com/features/cdn-compatibility/

Hi Firsh, I’m having trouble with rss feed autoplay using youtube as a source. I’ve copied the Taylor Swift youtube feed example from http://justifiedgrid.com/sources/rss-feeds/youtube-gallery/ on http://recesscleveland.com/gallery/#! and replaced the youtube source url with my channel feed. The items show up fine, but only the Taylor Swift videos autoplay while my channel videos show up as images in a gallery and do not autoplay. Any suggestions?

Firsh

Firsh Author

Hi, what is your shortcode please? Contrary to what the name suggests, YouTube is no longer using actual RSS feeds with JIG. It’s a legacy that I continue to support it in the RSS feeds feature. But in reality it just scrapes the YouTube pages. Therefore you need to give it your channel in the same format, and not an RSS feed URL, since they changed how that works.

It’s not a matter of autoplay on/off, your version of the gallery doesn’t link to videos, it links to images. Did you accidentally use the “RSS links to” setting? Make sure it’s not on “image”. The thumbnails need to link to the video. Once that is achieved you can choose an appropriate lightbox – I recommend Magnific Popup as it’ll work fine and the same way on both dekstop and mobile.

So it must be something simple (if you gave it the correct URL).

Hi Firsh,

I have a big problem with the plug-in.

I’m using the plugin to fetch image from my Flickr account, the plugin seems to work ok, but at the bottom of the page theres hundreds and hundreds of broken link image. that make the page load so slowly.

What’s funny, is that happen only on the front page. If you can take a look here’s the front page : http://cmn.hartis.ca

then the exact same page cloned : http://cmn.hartis.ca/home

Those two pages are exactly the same but the frontage shows at the bottom the bug and not the other one,

And if I switch the pages in wordpress to make the /home page to be the frontage the problem switch pages.

I tried several settings in JIG and WP and, none seem to solve the problem.

Can you help.

Thanks

Forget this, W3 total cache solved the problem

Firsh

Firsh Author

When a content source changes, it doesn’t counts as cache invalidation in W3TC. Only when you re-save the page/post the gallery is on. Make sure that the caching plugin garbage collects sometimes.

Also some 3rd party sources invalidate their image URLs every now and then (Facebook). JIG has internal caching towards the external content sources, which you can use or skip and also reset when necessary.

Note that the caching plugin doesn’t just cache pages, it can cache database objects as well.

Dear Firsh,

I like JIG a lot. However, I do have a small CSS issue (even with the latest version) that I seem unable to solve.

I basically want to change the font size of the captions which I understand is easy do-able with the “Caption title CSS” and “Description title CSS” settings in JIG “caption” settings. However, this CSS seems to be overwritten inline by your plugin with “font-size:12px !important” in class ”#jig1 .jig-caption-title”.

I assume this has something to do with other JIG settings fixing this font-size but I do not see the reason why. I changed the DOM in Chrome manually to check if it looks good and all works fine with other (larger) font sizes. However, I cannot find a way to turn the override off.

Any hint would be greatly appreciated!

Sam

Nevermind, I found the issue. My shortcode set “caption_title_size=12px” manually. Solved!

Firsh

Firsh Author

Yes it can be directly controlled by the shortcode. The one with !important was you own value :) I rarely use !important on properties that I expect to be customized. In other places they exist to force resolve some incompatibilities by themes.

I have recently purchased JIG for a site I’m replacing, for use with NextGen. I have always used NextGen to change the sort order of galleries. I’m reasonably sure I was able to do this on my new site up until now, when I noticed the image order is wrong.

I have different kinds of galleries and I use JIG shortcodes for them. But it appears that the sort order button in NextGen has vanished. Apparently there is no way to order a JIG gallery unless I use the same default setting for all of them. Am I wrong? Is there something I’m missing?

Firsh

Firsh Author

And to avoid copypasting you might want to look into automatically taking over NextGEN content.

I’m using Fusion Builder, but I meant just like NextGen, ie. http://imgur.com/dwgRihv

When I use either the default visual editor or a text area control inside Fusion Builder, the NextGen control will appear.

Firsh

Firsh Author

Aaaha that. Yeah that’s something on the to-do. Thanks for the suggestion!

Do I need to renew my support in order for you to reset my license? I’d like the plug-in to automatically update and it doesn’t right now.

Where is the visual composer that is supposed to be bundled with it? not in the downloaded zip. Documentation is rubbish, does not actually give a “how to”. Wish i had never purchased it, does not make any sense at all. Where is the front end for building galleries?

Firsh

Firsh Author

Visual Composer is not bundled with it, a VC addon is bundled with it but you don’t need to install it separately. You’ll find JIG along with other VC components if you open Visual Composer. You didn’t think that a $34 plugin (VC itself) would be included in a $29 plugin did you?

then what is said id misleading. Where is the back end for putting galleries together, adding images etc.?

Firsh

Firsh Author

Hi, there is generally no such thing, it uses sources you already know. So you put galleries together on Facebook, Flickr.. or upgrade your existing WP galleries. Or use NextGEN, WP Real Media Library.

http://justifiedgrid.com/sources/

“This is not another gallery management plugin… you don’t upload photos or create albums. Instead, Justified Image Grid is a display that connects content sources you already use to lightboxes. What connects things is a beautiful “bridge”, the grid itself. So you don’t need to learn a new gallery plugin. Most importantly there is no need to move what you already built! At the same time, still show galleries with the nice new look. This makes adapting to Justified Image Grid easy and fast. Apart from deciding the visuals, there is not much to work on.”

You can choose what to show in the shortcode editor. http://justifiedgrid.com/features/shortcode-editor/

If you are not satisfied with it just ask for a refund.

Hello Firsh, love your plugin, bought 4 licenses so far, maybe another one soon. Is it possible to create a grid that mixes both WP recent posts and an Instagram feed?

I wrote to you last week re: images being off center. Thanks for the help. Although the code you sent did solve a lot of the problem, the images are still getting cut off and not centered with visual composer. I researched VC and found that they have a “no padding” row adjustment and I’ve researched the theme settings and it also is set to 100% with 0 padding. Somehow VC has a default padding setting of 15px left and right and even when it is turned off, the JIG seems to be out of alignment by about 30px which would be the off center amount calculation of what is being cut off. Any thoughts around this? Could the JIG calculations be still working off of the VC inner row with the padding?

What’s odd is that I have one row on the link below called Research Uprights by Price Category which corrects itself but the other rows are all off center. I’ve looked through the shortcodes and can’t find the difference in the settings. I used a preset on this but even using the same preset, I just can’t seem to replicate the center justification. Upon reload of the screen, you can actually see the correct row move over but the other rows do not. dev2.pianopricepoint.com/

Your advice on this is greatly appreciated. Regards

hi there, can yo please reset my license? in the wordpress plugin site it doesn’t automatically update the plugin any more…
