WP Image Borders
[resolved] Compatibility Issues? (7 posts)

    Just tried out your plugin, it looks quite promising. Curious, are there any possible conflicts with WP Better Security that may cause it to not work properly?

    I have followed the tutorial but the frame and dropshadow are not showing in either Firefox or Chrome. However, when I check the code using Firebug in Firefox, the code is there for a border, yet I see nothing to support the dropshadow. It would appear that the border is there but invisible because it's white on white.

    Any ideas why the drop shadow is not showing? Bearing in mind that this is a very early work in progress, you can see a bit here:

    Hey Myk,

    Thanks for trying out the plugin.

    Is it active right now? It should be applying a class of "wib-img" to the post.

    If it is inactive, then when you activate it, make sure the "remove image borders" box is unchecked, and make sure there is a color being applied to the drop shadow.

    P.S. What do you think of the Support tab in your admin sidebar? Do you prefer support here, or do you think that's something you would like using?

    Never used the support tab before. Actually, I'm seeing it for the first time now that you mention it. Not used to WordPress, I'm an old Drupalhead.

    Both have their advantages, but I think using a forum allows other people to search and possibly find answers to questions that may have already been resolved without a dev having to get involved with repeats. But using the ticket system allows one to feel like they are getting "personal" service...

    that said, I have re-activated the plugin. Looks like the wib-img class is indeed being applied, but there appears to be no delcaration made for the shadow component. I'm no CSS expert by a long shot, but here's a screen shot showing what i am seeing with Firebug, although I'm sure you can see the same thing, now that the plugin is active.

    Any ideas?

    Gotcha, thanks for entertaining my questions.

    I found out what's going on with the shadow - it looks like the 4th value (spread) is not set. So instead of being read as a 0, it's being read as a space which is breaking the box shadow property.

    If you change the spread value to 0 (or any value you want) the shadow should show up. In the meantime, I'll work on a fix to make sure it defaults to zero in the future!

    That did the trick, thank you :)

    And now if anyone else has the same issue, it's well documented.

    Thanks again,

    Awesome plugin, by the way. Really surprised that there is nothing comparable that I have found for WordPress.

    Thanks Myk! I really appreciate that.

    I came up with the idea about a year ago before I knew anything about CSS or plugin development. Adding borderless images on a blog with a gradient behind the post content always looks terrible! The need never got filled, so I made my first plugin :)
