Support » Plugins » [Plugin: WP e-Commerce] Conflict with Featured Content Gallery Plugin

  • Just installed WP e-commerce and it has disabled my Featured Content Gallery Plugin. All the photos from the Gallery and the text that goes with them are there, but they aren’t in gallery format anymore. Instead, they are stacked on top of each other behind the main content of my site.

    Would like to know if anyone else is having similar problems or has discovered a fix for this.

    Thanks! 🙂

  • What is the link to the featured gallery plugin? I have gone through the WP e-Commerce code and they use wp_enqueue_external_script($script) which makes me think that it is the Featured Content Gallery Plugin causing the problem.

    I think so too bobcJZ.

    Here’s the link to the Featured Content Gallery Plugin:

    I know that the Featured Content Gallery has mootools in its scripts folder, as well as js files. Could they be the problem?

    I was doing some research yesterday, and I think the solution is to use the jQuery noconflict function call but since I’m not familiar with jQuery I don’t know exactly what I need to include nor where I need to put it.

    I found this too but I’m not sure how to proceed, which file(s) he’s talking about editing, etc. Don’t want to mess things up.

    I’m sorry to say it. But I just don’t think I would be using plugins that are based on mootools.

    If you jump on the WP e-Commerce forums somebody might be able to help you there. Otherwise you may want to approach somebody there for some professional support time…

    Hi Mufasa,

    Thanks for the comments.

    I don’t know a thing about mootools. Why do you think they should be avoided?

    I’ve decided not to use the featured content plugin after all. Maybe something will come along in the future that will play nice with WP e-commerce 🙂

    Wanted to add that I have asked about this issue on the WP e-commerce forums, as has another person experiencing the same problem, and have not received a reply for weeks. Guess no on at WP e-commerce has a clue either.

    Still would be interested in knowing your apprehension about using plugins based on mootools.

    I have the same exact problem. I’ve disabled all of my plugins, which many people seem to have conflicts with, with no luck.

    Too bad. I like this plug-in too. Suck that it would cost $99.95 to get any technical support. Not even a help file file comes with it.

    Anyone have any luck in the 2 months since this thread has been updated?

    Nope. No luck here. I moved on and found things that would work well together.

    I completely abandoned WP e-commerce and would advise others to proceed with caution if they choose to use it. The developers don’t really seem to care about helping their users, and I found that they weren’t even familiar with their own code for their plugin!

    hi guys,

    well, u can try the next-gen smooth gallery with iframe.

    There’s a quick and easy solution to this problem (if you understand PHP).

    Step 1:
    Add the following lines to your theme’s header.php file immediately below the call to wp_head():
    <?php if(is_front_page()) do_action('jdm_head'); ?>

    Step 2:
    Open the main file for the Featured Content Gallery (content-gallery.php) and edit the following lines at the end of the file:

    /* we want to add the above xhtml to the header of our pages: */
    add_action('wp_head', 'gallery_styles');
    add_action('admin_menu', 'gallery_options_page');

    Chance them to:

    /* we want to add the above xhtml to the header of our pages: */
    add_action('jdm_head', 'gallery_styles');
    add_action('admin_menu', 'gallery_options_page');

    Assuming the featured content gallery is on the front page of your blog (like it is on mine) this completely solves the conflict problems between the two plug-ins.

    You can check out the interaction live on my site. The home page is http://www.jumping-duck.com and the e-commerce store is http://www.jumping-duck.com/store.

    Good luck!

    Thank you ericmann —- it worked like a charm.

    worked great for me too. Thanks!

    Yep…good catch!

    I would love some help with this plugin. I run a theme on my site and I want to run Featured Content on the front page. I have installed the plugin but I don;t know where to put the code in the template. Which template?
    I have main index template
    page template
    home.php

    Where does this code go? I am stuck. It says insert the code where you want the plugin to appear.
    Thanks
