It clear a float element (like the thumbails), otherwise some text behind will float on the most themes. Doesn’t know why the hell , it produces this space…
No floating elements allowed on either the left or the right side
Regaring the 4th pic, this is a feature of Thickbox. So not a bug 🙂
While I’m at it, I’d better ask this too:
Is there no way to make the pages generated by NGG a little bit more customizable? Perhaps even search engine friendly?
Whenever I click on the button of a gallery page to see the other pictures, it brings me to a page named like this:
instead of, for example:
which would translate into this:
http://www.townportal.ro/poze/Cismigiu_p3 or something similar
@alexrabe – this problem really is theme specific, and based on whether floating elements are being executed properly. Technically
clear: both;should do just that. In some cases removing the “both” property can cause other problems, like you said it can cause text to float around the galleries in strange ways.
I have noticed though that most people having this space problem have a three column layout with the content being the center column. Maybe there could be a way or option in the NGG Settings that allows them to specify if they are having this trouble and then it just turns off the “both” property.
@duckduke – There is an setting that does just that if I’m understanding you correctly. Gallery -> Options -> General then tick the box for “Activate Permalinks”. After doing this though make sure you go and rebuild your permalinks so that it will work correctly.
Hey , you are my hero ! I didn’t recognize that it’s indeed a three column issue.
I will create a new css for this themes … Perfect.
Thank you! thank you! thank you! 🙂
I’ve cleared out the little thingies and the space is gone.
I’ve checked what you’ve said and now it’s just like I wanted it to be.
Buuuuut }:ᦓ New issue:
After testing it further in Opera and Firefox, all works fine.
In Internet Explorer (or/and Maxthon), the big space is still there…
Any thoughts on this?
I have the same problem in one other place, where I don’t have NGG installed:
http://www.townportal.ro/utile/ – No plugins (no NGG), some scripts in the left column for time and date, converting money, and weather forcast.
– Same big space showed only with IE.
On my other 5 sections, I don’t have this problem with the space. Maybe this can provide some insight and clues on the problem…
http://www.townportal.ro/jocuri/ – I have flash games embedded, no NGG
http://www.townportal.ro/muzica/ – I have an mp3 player, no NGG
http://www.townportal.ro/carti/ – I have nothing yet 😀
http://www.townportal.ro/video/ – Many video players embedded, no NGG
http://www.townportal.ro/blog/ – A bunch of plugins, no NGG
– No big space, everything works fine in all browsers.
No idea what is going on, but that doesn’t say much, seeing as I’ve started using wordpress 2 months ago 🙂
I need help too 🙁 🙁 :(:
I don´t want to have the spaces after and between the albums. Who can help me??
Edit: Oh no, what´s that now???
Love the plugin. Thank you for developing.
I’m in a similar situation. I’ve /* clear:both; */ in all of my CSS sections for the plugin and I’m still getting a gap.
Here’s the gallery page from my site:
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
@duckduke – I have have viewed that page in 3 versions of IE and do not see the space you are talking about. As far as squashing CSS issues with a design may I suggest installing Firebug it makes working on a CSS file a breeze.
@kijac – after commenting out the both property you will also need to do some editing to your themes style sheet to force your containing div to wrap around the galleries. you will need to add
clear:both;to this class
.post .postmetadatawhich is located in your
style.cssfile around line 194
@alex – Here’s hoping your serious cause I would be honored to be your hero 🙂 As mentioned before if you need help just let me know I would love to contribute after all of the hard work I know you have put into this.
Thanks WhisperT. There are different choices for style sheets and I missed that I was working in the default. Works now. Excellent!
I’m happily using NEXTGen for a while now. Also using a 3-column-theme and had to take out the
clear: both;to get it work properly (thanks @@ Alex for pointing that out t me some months ago!). so, I’m very much looking forward to a new version with specific styleheets for 3-column-themes.
I have now one problem that I don’t manage to get rid off (I’m a sucker for css …). I have now added the NEXTGen Smooth Gallery plugin and the stylesheets are messing pages up.
I’d appreciate any suggestions on what’s going wrong here (and where to fix!).
😉 In the file called
nggSmooth.phparound line 166 you will see another one of those rogue
clear: both;properties. If you remove it your gallery will no longer drop down like that.
@wsperuzzi – Welcome 🙂 Glad it fixed the problem.
THANKS! That was it (line 166, btw).
I was going through many, many … css-files and some phps but didn’t manage to trace down which one produced the
clear: both;. I should spend some time getting to know css a bit better.
“Hero” struck again. 😉
