Support » Plugin: WP Supersized » [Plugin: WP Supersized] Thumb Tray Automatically Visible and Vertical

  • Over at build internet there are several posts about how to edit shutter.js and some html to keep the bottom tray visible without having to click on a link. How would one do that with WordPress, since this is not an option in settings.

    What I REALLY want is a vertically oriented thumbnail navigation with thumbnails that are as clear as the prev/next thumbs. No matter what size I have WordPress make my thumbnails in the image gallery (I need captions, so using this option) they aren’t very sharp. But even more important is that I would like one column of thumbnails, scrollable, down the right side.

    About the tray being open without having to click on it, I will try to add this option in a future update.

    The plugin uses the standard thumbnail size from the WP Media Gallery. Make sure that you set the thumbnail size to 150px height minimum in Settings->Media in WP.

    For a vertical column of thumbnails, the Supersized theme must be modified. I will put this on my wish list for a future update.

    Thanks for considerations for the wish list.

    For the landscape images 150 high is fine. What’s happening is that the portrait image is being stretched, as 150 high for an image that is originally over 1000 pixels high and considerably less in width is creating a much narrower thumbnail. So I just went bigger (225 width and 300 high) for thumbnail generation. Still not as sharp as I would like it so looks like manually replacing the thumbnail files is the unfortunately best way to go.

    Thanks for getting back to me.

    not everything you’re looking for, but I changed wanted to change the thumbnail size, too. this doesn’t address a vertical list.

    in case it helps anyone, I replaced the $wpgallery_thumburl with a custom size ‘mini’ which I added to my theme. then i got control over the size and box-cropping of the thumb, and set the css display to match, so quality is perfect. There were a few straightforward the css required, and I changed WPSupersized.php on about line 780:

    $wpgallery_thumburl = wp_get_attachment_image_src( $image->ID, 'mini' );
    $wpgallery_thumburl = $wpgallery_thumburl[0];
    // $wpgallery_thumburl = wp_get_attachment_thumb_url($image->ID); // full

    best wishes, Tim
