FAQ

How to add a custom theme?
  • Build your custom css theme is easy. Just create a folder with the name “bmo-expo-themes” in “wp-content”. Create a second folder “scrollGallery” and a third folder “scrollLightboxGallery” hierin. In these folders you can save your own css themes. Every theme need a “CSS Name:”, a “Description:” an “Author:“ and a “Version:“. A good template provides the “classicBlackDesign_sG.css” in bmo-expo/css/themes/scrollGallery/classicBlackDesign_sG.css.
    • You will find a example at my FAQs.
In which languages ​​is the plugin available?
  • The plugin is translated in English, German and Serbo-Croatian.
    • If you translate the plugin in other languages, please send me your translation. It would be great if you let the community benefit from your language skills. Translating a plugin is very easy. If you would like to help me to translate the plugin in other languages, then use the .po file available in the plugin folder. Download the tool poEdit (http://www.poedit.net/) and you can translate the file.
    • Thank you to Borisa Djuraskovic and Web Hosting Hub for translating the plugin to Serbo-Croatian.

Developer tips

Reviews

Poor doc, poor support

I used Nextgen ScrollGallery (same plugin author) for a long time and I loved it. As it’z not supported anymore and as advised by the author, I have tried BMO-Expo.

I kinds of work but it not good enough.
– Lack of info in the settings (some stuff is just not understandable)
– FAQ is terribly poor
– I tried to customize CSS and got nowhere (although I’m used to customizing CSS plugins)
– Author hasn’t reponded to posts for at least a year.

Maybe Benedikt you are sick or have problems. If it’s the case, I truely wish you the best.
However I would prefer that a plugin is retrieved from WordPress when it can’t be properloy supported.
