Can't figure this out! (5 posts)

    This looks great for my needs but I just can't figure out how to actually use it.
    I've been looking at it for hours now visiting this forum and the other one.
    You can see my test gallery here http://www.chestertonphotography.co.uk/galleries/gallery-001/

    Even just adding the shortcode to a post doesn't bring up the gallery. It's practically just a blank page.

    I've created a gallery and all seems ok, but how do I actually get that gallery to show on my home page so it looks like the demo site https://xparkmedia.com/image-store/demos/store

    Had the same predicament but so far this is what i did. You need to create a say named "image store" then on the page creation add the shortcodes for the gallery which looks like:

    [ims-gallery id=xxxxxxxxx layout=lightbox number=all linkto=file]

    xxxxxxxx is your gallery id. However you can also enable kitchen sink view on your page creation located on the little icons above where you add page content then you'll see the IM icon, click on it then follow it through. Or otherwise just add this code in TEXT view.

    First of all thanks for the reply and the delay in replying.
    Only just got around to working on it again.

    So you know the links in my first post will no longer work as I have done a new installation.

    That is what I was doing, but it wasn't working properly.

    However it does now seem to be working ok, but without the Paypal cart!

    Here is the actual gallery page, with paypal working http://www.chestertonphotography.co.uk/galleries/gallery-1/

    Also, how do I do it so the page shows as xparkmedia.com/image-store/demos/store

    I also now presume that instead of using posts as I previously was, I now have to use pages (if I want the Paypal option, which I do)

    I'm pretty sure I've actually figure it out at last.

    So, my next question is how to use a menu using the code that gets all the albums on one page.
    What I mean is, let's say I want to use Football photos and Music photos.

    OK, I know I'm sounding confusing now and it doesn't help being tired, but hopefully you understand what I mean.

    EDIT: Without tempting fate, I think I FINALLY have it figure out!

    Well, I DID have it figured out but all of a sudden my gallery page has decided to stop showing everything.
