WP Photo Album Plus
[resolved] Thumbnail mouseover description gets truncated (9 posts)

    I want to display the thumbnail image and title (only) in an album. When someone mouses over the image/title, I want to show the description. No problem. I edited wppa_theme.php and that portion works fine.

    I have increased the size of the thumbnails but sometimes my descriptions are sometimes a little too lengthy and the mouseover gets truncated. How can I extend the length of the mouseover window without making the Thumbnail Framesize too large?

    Thank you for any suggestions.

    You need not make the thumbnail frame bigger.
    Do the following:

    edit wppa_style.css as follows:

    /* The popup small image */
    .wppa-popup {
      position: absolute;
      padding: 5px;
      border-left: 1px solid #ccc;
      border-top: 1px solid #ccc;
      border-right: 1px solid #888;
      border-bottom: 1px solid #888;
      background-color: white;
      font-size: 10px;
      line-height: 12px;
      z-index: 1000;
    }

    So, add the z-index: 1000;

    You need not to make a copy of wppa_style.css as described in the header, i will make this alteration standard.

    Thanx for your input.

    Thank you for the quick response. However that does not seem to work for me as I still see the same truncation. I changed the font-size to make sure I was in the right spot and that change displayed fine. I tried on firefox, ie, safari & chrome. Is there something else I should have changed besides the z-index? Thank you!

    Do you have an email address I can use. The site is not live as yet so it is awkward to publish a public link. Thank you for responding -- sorry for any inconvenience.

    The solution turns out to be that you must have overflow visible in the themes css for the main display area, most commonly named #container.

    I do not support wp photo album, please de-activate it and install wp-photo-album-plus. Than you can re-generate thumbnails (if needed, they are made automaticly) in the settings page Table VIII item 7.
