Fantastic work on this plugin, and I’ve reviewed it accordingly. However, I’m hitting a wall on customizing it.
What I’m trying to do is display only featured images in a grid or masonry (no title, no meta, no excerpt, just the images), in fixed dimensions (say, 250×250 cropped but with fidelity in its aspect ratio). Then, via CSS make the title (or meta) only appear after the user mouses over (hover, focus) on the image.
1) Is there a way to increase the number of columns from 2 to more? Like say, 4?
Or output in generic form with proper CSS wrapping class names so that I can set the images to display using Masonry, format it using flexbox, etc.
2) Even after removing meta and source, there doesn’t seem to be an option to hide the title (like say, hide_title=’true’) the way meta, source and other elements can be removed/hidden.
3) Currently, each post in the listing points to the subdomain URL (e.g., “mysubdomain.mysite.com/<slug>/” instead of the domain mapped version: “mysubdomain.com/<slug>”). Did I miss or misconfigure something?
Anyways, I’ve had to set various CSS rules because for all the cool flexibility and shortcode options, some parts of the output are still kind of rigid or hardcoded. (For example, aside from say, “column=’4′” not working because columns are set to 1 or 2 only, there are also hardcoded empty paragraph <p></p> tags there instead of the margin/padding to be set only via CSS, so it kind of still displays a blank line, so I had to set them to display:none; manually, etc.)
Please note this is not a criticism (I did review this plugin as wanting 6 stars out of 5), but both suggestion and request for advice if the above are possible. Thanks!
