[resolved] [Plugin: GRAND FlAGallery - Best Photo & Media Gallery] Skin Options (8 posts)

    Looks amazing but no matter what demo skin is loaded, the Image Gallery Options stay the same and seem to have zero effect.

    Are admin changes available once a skin has been purchased? Is it possible to change background colors etc. to match theme?

    Search here shows that similar question has been asked over and over without response so I don't hold much hope for an answer - but how can anyone be expected to purchase without ?!

    /wp-content/plugins/flagallery-skins/ folder and skin folders in it should be with write permissions to save skin settings.

    Thanks Codeasily,

    I have full permissions and I can see now that I can manually edit settings.php but I couldn't see how to access this from admin.

    In Options->Image Gallery Options there is a settings page but this does not seem to relate to any particular skin and changing values has no effect.

    Most of the important ones such as $Backcolor $slDelay etc., don't show on the settings page but are in the php file.

    Skins list does not show all skins (after refresh skins) and most don't have 'Options' link.

    go to Skins page -> find skin you want to change -> be sure it is active -> scroll up and click on Active Skin Options tab -> change settings of skin and click save.
    On the latest skins you can see Options link near the Activate link... so you can edit settings without activating skin.

    Sorry but I just don't get it.

    The two skins I am interested in are 'Default' and 'Green Style PRO'. I have a page with both on using different galleries. They look great - except that the colours are completely wrong.

    'Default' does not appear in Skins list, 'GreenPro' does. After clicking Activate it says 'Activated by Default' but there is no 'Options' link.

    In 'Options->Image Gallery Options' there is no Background colour option. Changing everything else to #ff0000 to test has no effect.

    In files plugins/flagallery-skins/xxxx/settings.php, there is a $backcolor option but changing values to #ff0000 to test has no effect.

    I really appreciate your tolerance codeasily, but I give up.

    - Go to skins page
    - Activate Green Style PRO DEMO
    - Change every Active Skin colour to #ff0000

    Nothing changes - but it has created flagallery-skins/green_style_pro_demo_settings.php

    - Go to green_style_pro_demo folder
    - Change every colour to #ff0000 in settings.php

    Nothing changes.

    Is it simply that DEMO skins can't be changed ?!?!

    Bizarre!!!!

    I just tried it in Chrome and it is fine- the problem is IE9 related.

    If I change anything in IE9, I don't see the effect, even with cache clear - until I completely close the browser session and open a new one.

    If I have Chrome and IE9 open at the same time, changes in either browser are seen immediately in Chrome but never seen in IE9 until it is closed and re-opened.

    I have never seen a similar effect but anyway, in Chrome it is an amazing 5* plugin.
