Menu Item "Galleries" -> Albums (11 posts)

    Hi all,

    I think this plugin is awesome.

    I am trying to do something that should be reasonably straight forward and simple but I struggled and struggled.

    I want a menu item that's labelled something along the lines of "Private Galleries".

    When I click on this menu item, I wish to go to a page that has all of the private galleries\albums appear as thumbnails. When I click on a thumbnail, I want to be taken to a login page for that private album.

    So far, I have only been able to have one main Private Gallery menu item, when I mouse over I have private album menus pull down and can only reach private albums by clicking on the menu item.

    (See my website e-regular.com).

    Imagine if I have 100's of private albums, then each item would appear as a menu item and the menu would be too loooong. Using this method, I also have to add every private gallery manually to the menus section. I am using WordPress theme: TwentY Eleven.

    I wish to have a similar set up to jonaspeterson.com -> clients menu item.

    Any help with this is greatly appreciated.

    To be able to accomplish that you will need to create a custom template page. And use the WP_query function on wordpress.

    The plugin only offers a login page, because even if you are just showing one thumbnail you should not make your client's images public, privacy and legal reasons

    Hmmm, I wanted to use something simple like [image-store secure=1] or similar and not have to call upon PHP functions...

    Or something like: [ims-gallery id=0 layout=1 caption=1 orderby=date number=5 linkto=attachment]

    Or: [image-store list=23]

    I don't mind if a thumbnail of a client's photos is showing...

    Is there a guide outlining all of the possible square bracket parameters I can use?

    e-regular, I see you have solved this on your site. Can you let me know how you did it.

    This is what I did:

    [image-store album=XXX count=10]

    where album=XXX is the album ID.

    I think one needs to wrap his head around the gallery and album concept.

    An album can have many galleries - each gallery is a wedding, for instance.

    I hope this helps a bit? I only have one album and numerous galleries.

    oops wrong way around. I have one protected album and this album has three galleries... each gallery is a wedding, for instance.

    Thanks - I just didn't realise how easy it is. Is there some documentation about the syntax you have shown above?

    Nah, for me it was a bit of trial and error... and I did go to the plugin page and saw the section that talks about sample code or something to that effect. Let me see if I can find it again...

    Ok try this:

    e-regular, thanks for your help. I am off and running. Still need some help to get albums working, but at least I can manually create a page to display an album for now.

    Since the new image store updates, this plugin has stopped working for me.

    I have tried disabling all over plugins and the issue still occurs... The issue actually is that I can no longer password protected album's thumbnails on my private albums link. See here:


    I actually was using the following code that worked a treat for me right up until recent changes/updates to the plugin.

    [image-store album=XXX count=10]

    It has since stopped working.

    Any helps is greatly appreciated.

    Kind regards,

    I have encountered with the same problem.

    Nothing is displayed with [image-store album=XXX count=10]

    Help is appreciated.
