Hi, I have a question related to invoicing, our tax law requires getting something called as “certificate of residence” of companies we buying something from. I have contacted Evanto and they told me Author should provide such document to the buyer (not Evanto), can you please send such document to me ?
this is a really funny answer by Envato. Since customers purchase paying them, not me.
Obviously we are in the same boat and (if I can) I’ll tell my accountant to prepare that doc for you. But there are a lot of legal “issues” behind Envato words.
Could you please contact me through my profile form? I’d like to know which certificate you need in details. thanks
Yes I know its really stupid situation but our tax rules has changed the beginning of 2017 in Poland so our revenue require that, and what is important we should get official document confirmed not by your accountant but Tax Office … I know its stupid but its our reality here … otherwise I cant count my costs correctly here. Will be appreciated if you could provide me such doc. Thanks, my email email@example.com
Can’t do that. Your purchase isn’t my direct income.
You pay to Envato, obviously no one can confirm for a transaction between me and you that never happened
Please use my profile form, this isn’t the right place for these matters.
Partialy it is (:, I get 3 invoices from evanto and see the fee of the author. I dont expect from you invoicing me directly, only document which confirms where you pay your taxes , nothing else, it is required by our tax office for proper bookkeeping. As I understood you dont have such certificate.
Obviously I have an italian VAT ID, but please let’s continue in private. This is not the right place to speak about bureaucracy
I want to create a dynamic changing columns layout with a 1 | 2 | 1 | 3 | 1 | 3 | – columns ordering. I want to load my latest posts within.
Is this possible with your plugin?
what do you mean with “dynamic changing”?
And with “load latest posts” you mean to have always (for example) 6 tiles or want a growing grid?
Thanks for the fast respone. I want to create a fixed grid of 10 rows but with different tiles/ columns showing posts from different post tyypes. Dynamic changing was wrong description from me. I want to be able to decide the style of tiles within a row.
Sorry if I reply with questions, but there are missing points to reply you
- How many items per row?
- What do you mean with “decide tile style”?
I want one row with 1 item next row 3 items next row 2 items, next one item again. and so on.
There are medi agrid items for visual composer where you can desice the layout of the grid by adding order numbers per row in field like 3,2,1,3,3,2 which stands for itesm/tiles/ columns per row. Do s your plugin support this or a similar solution
thanky for the fast respone.
Okay, no problem with items number then.
My plugin offers a 100% layout-free solution. You create the grid. Then you shape it (row by row, in your case).
Hi its working. but im facing an issue with Woocommerce items. I enebaled woocomemrce but as soon as I ad a product item to my grid. I get message for missing thumbnails.
Thanks for purchasing!
Does that WooCommerce item have its featured image?
Yes all of my woocomemrce items here its working without woocommerce: https://roomique.com/homepage1/
and since I ad woocommerce ite nothing goes see here: https://roomique.com/homepage2/
Checking the code, featured image seems missing indeed. Would be possible to have a WP access to check directly?
PS: Please open a ticket http://support.lcweb.it/
Hi, thank you for taking a look at. Ive registered and send info over your support system.
i just bought your product…
I have a question :
Why can’t I use visual composer in Media Grid Item ?
simple answer: items post type isn’t public (since must be shown exclusively in grids). Then Visual Composer doesn’t integrate.
You should ask them if is possible to integrate with specific post types
if i want to change the item post type to public how can i proceed ?
Is simple but then you’ll have items searchable and reachable across the website. And they won’t look surely good.
Can you tell me how i do it if it’s simple ?
admin_menu.php – set line 47 to true
Is it possible, to have more than six colums? I need 15.
15 is way too much. Would be impossible to manage the grid builder and tiles would be absolutely tiny under full-hd resulution.
Media Grid (desktop mode) supports up to 10 columns
Thanks for your quick reply. Tiny is no problem at al. I’ll keep looking for that.
Hi, Pre-Sales question.
1) Is this faster than Essential Grid from Themepunch? I’m currently using that now but it feels sluggish to me.
2) Does this grid come with filter controls? I’m thinking of using this grid to display my Woocommerce products and would like to add filter controls above the grid.
1 – depends on what you mean for “faster”
In media grid you have control over thumbs quality and size. Then I can guarantee only necessary bytes are loaded. Nothing more.
2- Sure. You will have to manually assign product to media grid categories and they will be automatically shown on grids.
FYI: this is a layout-free portfolio plugin. Remeber you’ll have to insert products one by one into the grid builder and shape them (several customers think there are fixed prepopulated layouts)
Great plug-in with awesome features. Looks like it is going to do a great job,
BUT you have an updated version that significantly does not currently match the supplied documentation so it is a little harder to figure out.
I am sure that with the correct documentation I will find the plug-in one of the best WordPress plug-ins.
documentation is a guide to let you understand essential steps to setup the plugin. Each key step (and important features added) are listed there.
Which step isn’t clear?
can i use dropbox as image source and add gallerys with images from dropbox?
this is a portfolio plugin based on WP images. You could insert show galleries using shortcodes into the lightbox though.
What’s the difference between a “Static Image” and a “Single Image”?
static doesn’t have lightbox
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 103809024 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 39045121 bytes) in xxxxxx.com/html/wp-content/plugins/media-grid/classes/easy_wp_thumbs.php on line 514
simply your server isn’t powerful enough to create thumbnails. At least, thumbnail of certain images.
You could give a try enabling “timthumb” in settings, but the missing memory amount is pretty big. If doesn’t solve, ask for a memory increase
Seems odd. I upload large images all the time on other sites on the same server without issue. These files were actually smaller.
Upload isn’t the same as create a thumbnail
I understand, but I’ve built other galleries and never had any issues with thumbnails being generated for those. I’ll see what I can do to increase memory and experiment some more.
I should check directly to tell you why so many memory is needed. From the outside I can only interpretate the error message
Suggestions for future updates:
+ Allow author to add/replace grid items (so you can for example switch in better sized items for space available).
+ Allow author to delete items without destroying or changing desktop grid arrangement.
+ button to ‘duplicate desktop arrangement’ (so you can use the arrangement you made for desktop as starting point).
+ populate list with more sizing 2/9, 4/9, 5/9, 7/9, 8/9.
+ populate list with more sizing 3/8, 5/8, 7/8.
+ populate list with more sizing 2/7, 3/7, 4/7, 5/7 etc.
I avoided adding so many sizes to not confuse customers. However I’ve got a better idea for further updates: a sizes builder. So you can create the combination you prefer
1. and 2. It is reasonable to consider switching in and out different content for mobile and desktop devices. For example removing spacer items from the grid which have no benefit on mobile screens or using a more abbreviated content item if screen space more limited.
3. you can’t copy the saved desktop grid arrangement to the mobile mode view. I have a great desktop grid but when I show mobile view I have to start over and rebuild the grid arrangement and sizes a second time – annoying.
Last comment. Cool looking forward to that. It is silly having 1/5 when you can’t choose related size options for other items in the grid row to make up the 100% width. I have hacked your files to add the other options but this isn’t a good long-term option
Thanks for considering the suggestions.
1 – 2 – you can set spacer visibility in spacer editor. I know spacers have no sense on mobile
3- Mobile sizes can’t be the same as desktop. Cloning a grid you clone also the mobile mode. Then don’t undestand if you tried the cloning feature or I’m missing some point
1-2 Would be great still to switch in different items or reduce number of items in mobile view for a particular grid.
3. I have cloned a grid, and YES this copies both the desktop and mobile grid. BUT this works only if both grid modes are ready.
What I want to do is copy my finished desktop grid arrangement to mobile view so I have a good basis to work with.
Then I can adjust widths and positioning to fine tune it to work best. Understood size and arrangement of desktop may not suit mobile screen space BUT in grid edit mode you should be allowed to ‘break’ the space availability rules and see the consequences in preview mode. That way you can play until you get it right.
1-2- this isn’t possible: what you see in builder (both desktop and mobile) are the same items. would be quite a mess to have (and specially manage) different items in different modes
3 – This because you are advanced. Unfortunately I have to care any customer and most of them already have problems among sizes/modes/layouts.
Your suggestions are most welcome, but basically (from your comments) you’d like a totally new grid builder
Love the builder, that’s why I thought I would share my ideas on what would elevate it even further. Thanks
Don’t get me wrong: I also think the builder is a crucial point for the plugin and has new ideas. But your ones will mostly add complexity that almost no user will use
(just think that many purchasers don’t even know about mobile mode….)
question, I wanted to use this plugin for a video gallery I want to create but I want to make sure:
1.) Does it automatically create a featured image for the video? I do not want to have to upload an image for each video
Hello, are you going to use self-hosted videos?
Is it possible to put a repeating background image on the pop up? I’d be using the gallery pop up layout.
not by default, but takes a couple of seconds to me to give you the custom CSS to do so
Every time we have to update this plugin, the Predefined Styles settings are lost. We have to reconfigure it every time. Poorly developed plugin, that does not retain previous settings. With the update to 5.11, the default selection “All Photos” is now missing, instead found left of the category buttons above the gallery, is an empty box without the text. Not cool.
settings code is always the same, there’s no options overriding or data changing on activation. Pretty strange then.
The “All” filter field was a mistake I made months ago, now should be ok. My apologies for this
Well, the predefined styles never are retained on updating the plugin. NEVER has since we installed it 2 years ago. And the “ALL” selection is still missing in update 5.11. Empty gray distorted box without content.
Did you fill the “ALL” field in settings?
What do you mean exactly with “pred styles retained”? Once you set a preset style, options underneath are overrided. They matter.
Are you saying every styling option is resetted on update?
That is the problem. A seasoned developer would when adding a new variable field, in this case insert “All” as the default entry, since that had in all previous versions been the default. Since you added the variable that allows a user to change the text heading, it shows nothing since nothing is entered. The correct way of handling the field addition would have predefined “All” as an install default, allowing user to to change the text at will.
The second issue is explained correctly each time I write it. Your English is very poor, so you do not comprehend. Every time we have to update this plugin, the Predefined Styles settings are lost. Do you know where Predefined Styles settings are found in your plugin? I would hope so. See “Choose a style”? See the drop down “Select A Style..”? Every time the plugin is updated THAT choice is lost and has to be reset. A properly developed plugin would retain the users choice the FIRST time installed, but this plugin never does. I can’t explain it any better and the problem can easily be replicated.
Dunno if I am seasoned, but already do this as you can see
I love the way you insult me, but love even more the way you are occupying my weekend with expired support and not even understanding HOW plugin works (and this is not a language issue).
That dropdown is not saved.
As 10.730 customers correctly understood (despite of my “italian” english and my bad codes), that field is used to override all other styling settings.
You set a style -> all options are changed and kept. They change media grid style, not “Choose a style” field.
Now: if you have serious issues, renew the support entitlement and open a ticket. Otherwise, please, stop.
Is it possible to create own names for the new deeplinks?
Like instead of ”/?mgi_31=1724/projectname#!mg_ld=1126” just ”/projectname” ??
nope, item ID is mandatory
hm, any chance this will change sometime? When I copy+paste a deeplink to send it to a customer it just looks so weird/ugly with all the numbers etc
Right now I’m using another plugin for redirection. I create a nice link like /projects/customproject and redirect that to the cryptic deeplink url. I’d love to skip that step
Okay. Thanks for the info. Another issue is the path. I have a media grid under /projekts/ so the deeplinks are like domain.com/projects/?mgi_31=1724/projectname which is fine.
But Google also finds the links without the directory “projects”, so it links to domain.com/?mgi_31=1724/projectname. Why is that? Two issues:
1) When you click the link you go to my homepage instead of the projects page with the lightbox opened
2) google thinks I have douplicate content, because there are two links to the same content.
Any ideas how to fix it so it’s alsways /projects/...? Thanks!
This is because of the sitemap. I can’t know where customers will place grids, nor if they have properly indexed theyr pages. Then must use the homepage.
FYI: in any page, the ?mgi_ part works.
Have you submitted the sitemap to Google?
Oh ok – this was my fault I guess. I completely overlooked the fild “XML sitemap – items base-url” in the settings. I put domain.com/projects/ in it now and submitted it to google. That should do it, right? Thanks!!
(and you also just got support for free )
....and really FAST. Thanks man
Maybe I missed this in the item description and I didn’t thoroughly search through the comments before buying (like this one: https://codecanyon.net/item/media-grid-wordpress-responsive-portfolio/2218545/comments?page=120&filter=all#comment_15839615)...
BUT – the grid that this plugin creates can not be automatically populated. As far as I can see, grid items must be created one by one, manually.
My aim was to create a grid that is automatically generated from a custom post type, and having the CPT content displayed in a modal / popup (I could not get my custom fields to be displayed, too. But that might be another story).
The plugin functionality seems pretty far reaching and well thought through but documentation needs an update as I could only find a few narrated videos that show an outdated UI. Money down the drain in my case.
yes, is probably written in half thousand comments and visible in walkthrough videos
Media Grid is a layout-free portfolio. Not a gallery. Then (actually) items must be created manually and grid must be populated.
In future, I’d like to add a new builder to auto-populate grids though.
Is it possible to use iFrame content as one of the slider images?
not actually. Theoretically the slider supports any content, but not as implemented in MG.
However you could use a slider into the “inline text” item
