  • Resolved cmwatt


    Hi there,

    I’m in the process of making a portfolio website and have been using your plugin which seems to work well. I like that it’s easy to customise, however I wondered if it is possible to make the filmstrip navigator an option for individual albums rather than completely on or completely off?
    Is it possible or if not, may I suggest you add the option?

    My website is:

    It will be added to the wish list.

    If you install the latest hotfix ( you will have the option of using %%slidef=..%% or %%slideonlyf=..%% that will cause the filmstrip to be displayed even when its box is unchecked in the settings page.

    For instructions how to install see this page of my Docs & Demos site.

    Thanks Opa Jaap! That was quick! 🙂

    I followed the instructions for installing the new hotfix, but it still says version when I check the wppa.functions.php? I’m guessing as it says on your website, that maybe the zip hasn’t been updated yet? I’ll try again in a few hours.

    Thanks again, great support!

    I forgot to update the number, it should work however.

    Ok, seems to be working great.

    Thanks. 🙂

    I hope you don’t mind, but I have another suggestion for the filmstrip navigator. It would be good to have some control over scrolling through the thumbnails (especially if you have lots of photos in an album) either just by dragging with the mouse or some arrows at the sides?

    Sorry to be a pest, but I’ve just noticed the thumbnails in the filmstrip navigator are not clickable, in order to select an image to display?

    As soon as the slideshow is stopped, there appear arrows at the right and left side of the filmstrip. Herewith you can scroll one by one.

    But, there is more. You can click on any frame in the filmstrip, it is a direct access to the photo, the large display changes into that picture.

    When the slideshow runs, the filmstrip is not clickable.

    So, i think it works as you want. I had a situation before where the film frames were also clickable when the slideshow is running, but that leads to very confusing situations for the visitor.

    Further: i suggest you set the vertical alignment of thumbnails to center. That gives a nicer display to my opinion.
