[Resolved] Cover image changing on every refresh

  • Hi

    I have this small problem. The cover image of the gallery is changing every time I refresh the page.
    I would like to simply start the gallery slideshow with the first image(1) and I would like to have the same image for cover image all the time.
    Here is how i’m using it:
    [fsg_photobox include=”1,2,3″ rows=”1″ cols=”1″]

    Ant suggestions?

    Thanks in advance guys.

    fsg_photobox is for random grid of photos like this:

    For normal gallery just use default “gallery” keyword.

    Hi again
    Thanks for the response, but i don’t get it.
    I want to use fullscreen gallery, because i want to have the fullscreen effect with the thumbnails at the bottom.
    if I only use the “gallery” shortcode, than it will not call the plugin to work.
    All I want to do is to achieve the very same effect, but to have a none changing album cover, and when you open it, it should start from the first picture.

    Can you please write me the shortcode for that?

    Thanks in advance

    [gallery link="file" include="1,2,3"]


    This shortcode above will bring call for all the pictures of the include thingy.
    What i needed was this:
    [fsg_link link=”file” include=”359,361,563,564,565,566,567,568,569,570,571,572,573,574,575,576,577,578,579,580,581″ rows=”1″ cols=”1″]<img class=”alignnone wp-image-640″ src=”wp-content/uploads/2013/01/cover_image.jpg”/>[/fsg_link]

    This way i Just made a cover image and uploaded it to the server, and linked the gallery to it.
    Thanks for your help.

    Hi pdamsten and Gargantua,

    I’ve been trying to get the same result as Gargantua on my new WP testing ground website, but I’m experiencing a little problem. Most probably it is me doing something wrong but I’ve spent quite some time trying to find a solution with no success so far 🙁

    I’m adding a gallery to a page and get the sgortcode:
    [gallery ids="1,2,3,"]
    What I’d like to achieve is page with only a single thumbnail with a link to fullscreen galleria with images 1,2 and 3.
    Adding the fsg_link to the gallery shortcode:

    [gallery ids="1,2,3,"]
    [fsg_link link="file" class="btn" rows="1" cols="1" include="7,12,15,17,59"]<img alt="" src="http://jakzobrazka.pl/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/02_IMG_1472_1024-150x150.jpg" width="120" height="120" />[/fsg_link]

    of course results in three thumbs from the gallery + one thumb from fsg_link.
    Removing the gallery shortcode makes the gallery open with no images inside. How can I make this work?

    Thanks in advance,

    It should be without gallery. Version 1.1.4 has fixes to the fsg_link so please test it.

    Thanks for the response.
    I updated to the latest version, added a new gallery just to be sure, but the result is the same. Clicking on the link picture I get the background for the galleria but no photos.
    My code now is:

    [fsg_link link="file" rows="1" cols="1" include="148,147,61,60"]<img alt="" src="http://jakzobrazka.pl/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/02_IMG_1472_1024-150x150.jpg" width="120" height="120" />[/fsg_link]

    The test page is here: http://jakzobrazka.pl/wordpress/galeria/

    I’ve just updated to 1.2.2 and it works like charm now 🙂
    Thanks for the fix and the plugin itself.
    I’ll buy you a beer when I’m done with my new website 😉
