    I have installed this plugin on my site and I would like to have all of my items listed as thumbnails in columns and either the name of the item on under it or if you hover over it. But I'm getting all of the items listed down the page and the name of the item on the right. Am I missing something? Or is there a special code for this? Or is it my WordPress template that won't allow this? I am using Socrates Theme and they do have different page options but I'm using the default page for this. I've tried changing to different page templates to see if that would fix it and it didn't. Please help. Here is a link to my page so you can see what I'm talking about: http://simplytangerine.com/gallery/, but what I'd like to do is something like this:http://designdininganddiapers.com/project-gallery/. Thank you.

    Hi have you tried the following shortcode?

    [catablog template="gallery"]

    Give that a go and see what happens.

    Hi again, please make sure that you have selected the following under CataBlog settings >> Options >> Thumbnails ....add the following

    Thumbnail Width: 100 <= this can be changed to what ever settings you want but as a test simply add 100
    Thumbnail Height: 100 <= this can be changed to what ever settings you want but as a test simply add 100

    If you wish to keep the aspect ratio select this option as well.

    Save changes and I am sure that this will display correctly on your website.

    Let me know how you go.

    Kind regards

    Hi. Okay I used just the galley template code that you gave me and that worked but I wanted headers for each category for example: recipes, crafts and DIY, etc...but if I use the code from each of those galleries and the gallery template code it doesn't work. Therefore, I have one gallery page and all of my pictures mixed together and thats not good for people looking for just recipes, etc.. I'm going insane trying to get this right. Please help. Thank you.

    Hi can you try the following shortcode!

    [catablog category="recipes"]

    All you have to do is change the category with what ever category you have. Please also read the following information from the developer which will help you understand further your requirements.

    Let me know if this helps you

    Kind regards

    Hi simplytangerine I see on your website that now you have the gallery set up.

    If you want to only display a category using the gallery template; try the following shortcode.

    [catablog template="gallery" category="recipes"]

    Remember to use your categories, I have added recipes as an example.

    Let me know if this helps you.

    Kind regards

    Hi simplytangerine, you should basically put this inside the content of a page or post on your blog, if you are confused by that please take some time to learn more about WordPress and using Shortcodes in WordPress.

    Here is an example of the code you need, please notice that the category names here are just examples, and you should use your own categories.

    Dogs:
    [catablog template="gallery" category="dogs"]
    
    Cats:
    [catablog template="gallery" category="cats"]
    
    Birds:
    [catablog template="gallery" category="birds"]

    You may want to manually type this into your post or page, sometimes copy and paste brings along formatting and stops Shortcodes from working.

    Also, please make sure you have all your catalog items in the CataBlog Library categorized correctly.

    This did not work. I'm wondering if maybe u didn't set up my library correctly. I was supposed to create galleries and then tag each photo on the library under the appropriate gallery, correct?

    Wait I just looked at all of my photos in the library and under"categories" it says "uncategorized". How do I fix that?

    I think I figured it out. I didn't have categories. I hope this works! Will let you know.

    Hello simplytangerine for every item you add to CataBlog Library you should assign a category to the item to have more control and be able to create groups of items using a category. Once you assign a category to the item added to the CataBlog Library then you can use the shortcodes that @macguru2000 and I pointed out above adding the category you created.

    Remember when you edit the item and select a category or add a new category to save your work.

    I hope this helps you.

    Kind regards

    Please read all the documentation at the support blog, there you will find that the Library and the Galleries are two very different things. A gallery has its own [catablog_gallery] Shortcode, which has a completely different set of parameters than the standard [catablog] Shortcode.

    Some good reading:

    I'm going insane. I thought by fixing the categories this would work and still nothing!

    Yes, and that's wonderful, I feel like a lot of the experience you gained setting up CataBlog will transfer to other plugins and WordPress in general.
