[Plugin: Photonic Gallery for Flickr, Picasa, SmugMug and 500px] Flickr collection, slideshow mode c

  • Hello. I’m relatively new to WP and just getting a few things set up. I found my chosen theme to have unsatisfactory gallery support so I chose your plugin. So far it’s working well, except for a few things.

    #1: Under

    Generic Options > Generic Settings > Slideshow mode

    checkbox dosn’t appear to work. Checked or unchecked, I still get a pop-up panel when clicking on a thumbnail in the galleries page. See my galleries page

    #2: When using shortcodes to display a flickr collection, if the number of photos in the collection is more than the number set in:

    Generic Options > Flickr / Picasa popup panel > Overlaid Gallery Panel number of items

    the display of thumbnails is severely truncated, displaying only the top few pixels of the top row of thumbnails. Increasing the set number of items allowed fixes this to a point, but eventually causes scrolling issues on the page, can’t scroll back up to close the popup, requiring a page-refresh to exit the popup panel.

    #3: I can’t seem to find a way to control the size of the in-page thumbnails and pop-up panel thumbnails independently. I’d like to have a large thumbnail in-page and a small one in the pop-up panel.

    Both #2 and #3 would be non-issues if the issue with #1 was functioning as I believe it’s supposed to.

    #1 is behaving as designed. Basically if you have a thumbnail for a photoset, you WILL see the intermediate images. When you click on one of the images, that is when the slideshow will begin.

    For #2, you might be getting hit by an issue that some people seem to have. You could define a line of CSS code in your style.css file to account for this:

    .simplemodal-wrap { height: 800px !important; }

    Change the 800px to something that suits your sizes.

    That helps to a point. I’m still getting some image cut-off. It seems to be dependent upon the number of items present and/or the number of visible items allowed. I may just have to limit the number of photos displayed to a user to no more than 20 or so.

    Did you make the change? I am not seeing the code on your site.

    I did. I have:

    .simplemodal-wrap { height: 650px !important; }

    as the last line of code in my style.css file.

    This is what I see:

    .js #featured #slides, .js #featured-modest { background: url(images/ajax-loader.gif) no-repeat center; }
    	.js #featured .slide, .js #featured-modest .slide { display: none; }

    This is from http://www.redfish-photo.com/wp-content/themes/Chameleon/style.css

    Thats odd. I can load up the css file in two different browsers and see the code snippet you suggested, but I cannot see it in the live site on Chrome, even though a direct link to the css file shows it plain as day.

    OK – I needed to do a hard refresh to clear out my cache. I am now seeing the site alright without issues of cropping.
