Support » Plugin: JSJ Gallery Slideshow » Links to full sized images

  • Resolved brunito


    Thank you for such a simple gallery plugin – it fits my needs perfectly, and it’s fantastic not to have to go back and retrospectively edit posts to include a gallery.

    I had two questions:

    1. Is there a way for the images in the slideshow to link to the full-size image file (while using the “medium” image size as the setting for the slideshow itself)? Apologies if this has been answered already, but the closest thread I could find was and I don’t need anything quite as complicated.

    2. This is really a newbie question, but the CSS file opens without any line breaks in the WP editor (and also on my code editor when I download the file). That makes it a little tricky to edit. I was just wondering if there was a simple workaround before I went through and added line breaks in.

    Thank you in advance.

    Choose Beautify (decompress)

    It is better to make css modifications in your theme instead of the plugins css, otherwise custum edits get reset everytime you update the plugin. You also have more control over styling.

    1. You go to “Settings” > JSJ Gallery Slideshow > Advanced Options > Loading Options and select the default size you want for your images. This is a recent addition to the plugin, so make sure you have the latest version of the plugin.

    You can also add it in the shortcode:

    [gallery ids="1,2,3,4,5,6" size="medium"]

    2. I have to agree 100% with datiswous. Use beatify if you need to read it (although with Chrome Developer Tools, you don’t even need to parse the CSS), but never make edits to the CSS file in the plugin. Always make edits in your theme directory.

    This CSS file is very targeted and has a lot of classes so you might need to be very specific about your css rules, like for example:

    .gallery_container_jsj-gallery-slideshow .gallery-pager li:hover
    Add as many classes as you need in order to overwrite the default css.

    1. I have actually already selected “medium” as the size for the display of the slideshow (as it fits my layout quite nicely). What I am trying to do is also link to a full-size version of each image. Is this possible? Sorry if the original post was unclear.

    2. Thank you – Beautify has helped greatly!

    I’m not sure I understand what you need. You want to include a text link to the image, separate from the slideshow? Maybe, You want the image to be a link to the full size image?

    As of right now, there’s no way to do something like this. It does make sense to want to try to do that, so I might consider it for future versions.
