  • Resolved eviebee


    I just upgraded, was working fine in previous version… Now the “Gallery/Video Description in display” option creates a rectangle the same size as my video thumbnail image underneath it, with the description text in the upper left corner, and a sort of shadow inside the right and bottom rectangle edges. (ie. video thumbnail is 200 x 150, another 200 x 150 box is being created around the description text, underneath the thumbnail image)

    Also, the video thumbnails only create one column. When I set “Gallery/Video Description in display” option to “No”, everything displays as it should, with 3 columns of video thumbnails. How can I get the description text to display centered underneath the thumbnail without the box around it being created?

    Could you put up a screenshot? The change that was introduced was, the description for each video was taken to right side of thumbnail. This was done since in previous versions if the description length increases it breaks up page design. But I dont find any other rectangle coming with the description text. It may be some CSS styles with your theme that is affecting the CVG

    Ok. The video gallery working well (Version 1.4) is here:

    The problem I’m talking about (Version 1.5) is here:

    Thanks for your help!

    I have the same issue as evibee here. However, when I first upgraded and was on firefox it was exactly the same as the screenshots provided with a large description box and a vertical list display. Just now I checked again on Safari and the description box is smaller and on the right of the thumbnail but I still have a vert display. When the description display is off then I have the horizontal display I had previously.

    Must admit it that I am annoyed with myself because I only backed up the css file not expecting there to be other changes that would effect the display (you might have warned us.) Now I am really wishing I could go back to v1.4 and the way I had it. Any chance you got the older version lying around and wouldn’t mind letting me switch back?

    If it is some css files from my theme affecting the cvg player then why was it not the case before the update. What change did you make that would be causing the new issue? I wish to humbly request that you put things back the way they were or perhaps help us sort it out.

    Much obliged.

    You could get the older version from Developers tab in plugin page. Also I will be making this change in a new version coming soon together with some other issue fixes on 1.5

    Hey Praveen-

    I did find a download of the older version and was able to restore everything back to the way I had it.

    Fantastic plugin.
    By far, the best for self-hosting a video gallery.

    I’ll be smarter about backing up before future updates (just in case.)

    Thanks for the support.
