Support » Plugin: Twenty20 Image Before-After » with ability to disable overlay, now back to great plugin

  • UPDATE: The latest update 1.5.3 fixes the issues noted below.

    PREVIOUSLY: Up to version 1.2, I loved this plugin; it worked great, looked great, and I had no issues with it. But with version 1.3 (and now still up through the current 1.5.2), that added new “feature” of including a gray overlay with “before” and “after” captions has destroyed the functionality of my images. I used to be able to right-click on each image to download it to my computer (not critical for me as the site owner, of course, but I also encouraged the visitors to my website to do the same if they wanted higher resolution versions of the images). However, now the images are buried under that gray overlay and are no longer accessible. If being able to allow users to access the images is important, you’ll want to use a different before/after plugin (or hope this one returns to its roots).

    Another related consideration with this overlay is that if you drag the slider all the way to the left or the right, you’ll obviously be viewing just one of the images, but *both* captions are visible and so it appears a bit ambiguous.

    I contacted the developer about the overlay a few weeks ago and he indicated he’d look into fixing this in a future update (the easiest fix would seem to be to just remove the overlay, or make it so that it can be turned off), but unfortunately in the latest update the issue is still there. From the support pages, I took perkinsb1024’s advice about hiding the gray overlay with custom CSS (which works well with regard to the look of the overlay), but be aware that that doesn’t fix the fundamental issue: the images are still inaccessibly buried underneath the overlay container. Unfortunately, I may eventually have to reluctantly switch plugins if this issue can’t be fixed, so be aware of this limitation of twenty20 if you require user accessibility to the images.

    As I noted above, this plugin was formerly probably one of the best of the before/after plugins. It was simple to use and the visual results were excellent. But perceived “improvements” may not always be actual improvements. I look forward to when this plugin returns to its past glory.

    Hi,

    Thank you for the detailed review. Basically I was forgot this issue when I released the last update, but I just released another update 1.5.3 to fix the overlay issue.

    Now, caption overlay will be automatically disable if user can’t put the Before and After text.

    Best Regards;

    Thanks Zayed,

    I just tried out the new update and it works great!
