    There is no such functionality at present. But, the plugin doesn’t load all images at once. It loads a set of them, and only load more if the user scroll down.

    So glad you like it. And thanks for the reminder to update the tested to version.

    OK, so now I see the same thing. I can see that the code that organises the images, Masonry, isn’t run on your site. That means that the images never get this class (kind of like a tag) .masonry-brick, which means that they remain hidden.

    So that is why you see nothing. The question is why masonry doesn’t run. I can’t see any errors in the logs, so my suspicion is that some plugin or your theme is getting in the way. I see that you have some kind of loading screen at the start, some blue round wave thingi. I would suspect that is it.

    So…. I tried to reload the page a few times and once in a while, it works. That make me think there is a race condition with another plugin. Whichever loads first gets run, and blocks the other. But without admin access it is almost impossible for me to debug further from here.

    My advice would be to turn one plugin off at a time, maybe find a plugin that can selectively turn off plugins for specific pages (if there is such a thing) and see if that works. If not, then it is the theme.

    So this is what I see when I go to your site:

    So that looks fine to me. Is your problem that you are missing specific images?

    Looks like it is working for me. Sometimes it looks like it grabs a bunch of photos, but then filters them all out, so it has to grab a new batch. Remember, the script will make a request for photos, then apply any filters you have. If your filters are really restrictive, it may give rise to that loading message to appear, disappear and reappear several times.

    I can’t remember exactly what the problem was with Photon, but if I marked it down as one of the incompatible scripts, then I probably had a good reason for it, and it would be very difficult to work around.

    WordPress allows scripts to do some weird things, and if it plays too loose and dirty with the standard ways that photos are included in the blog, then my script won’t know what to do with it. So, in short, sorry. I’m afraid there isn’t much I can do.

    You have to put the attribute values in quotes.

    [image_wall include_pages="false" open_links_in_new_window="false"]

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Christmas and New Years you know.

    What is the URL of the image wall? And, what is the shortcode you use?

    Sorry to hear that. I’d appreciate it if I could have a chance at looking at the problem before you review the plugin. I’ve had a fair number of cases where the issue was either a problem with expectations, understanding what the plugin is about or incompatibility with other plugins. (In your case, it sounds like the latter.)

    I am personally on 4.4.1 and generate my own image wall using the shortcode below:

    [image_wall image_sizes="medium , large" column_proportion_restrictions="2" move_to_end="true" open_links_in_new_window="true"]

    And that works. I also tried with open_links_in_new_window=”false”, and that worked too.

    Always a pleasure to hear from happy users! 🙂

    You could explicitly set the column width if you’d like. Then it will scale images larger than that column to fit the column size. Have you seen the Image Wall Plugin Site?

    Batch size of 0 will always error. It has to try to load at least one image per batch.

    The plugin should load more images when you scroll to the bottom. And if with a batch size of 100 you get 91, then you know there are at least 91 valid photos, so at 50, it should then load the first batcch (47 apparantly, which leads me to believe three images were either invalid or filtered) and then when you scroll down, the additional photos up to 91.

    If it doesn’t do this, then there is a problem. The problem could be with the plugin, but since it is currently working for thousands of others, I would guess it has something to do with your site. But, without seeing it, I can’t do anything further.

    By default, the image wall will appear wherever you enter the shortcode. Your theme will allow the content a certain width, in which my image wall must live. It cannot be wider than the width of your content. So, that is probably it. Difficult to tell for sure without seeing it myself.

    You could add the shortcode argument to move the entire image wall to the bottom of the site. But, that means it would be below your footer, so that might not look right either.

    Thanks for the beer money! I put it to good use. 🙂

    As for your re-gen question… Tricky. Don’t know what is going on on your system. Which re-gen method are you using? Have you tried switching to the other one? The Calculation one should be instantaneous, while the Hashing depends on a background process. If you are having issues with hashing, try calculation.

    Hello. I’m glad you like the plugin!

    The two parameters you can play with to pre-load images are these:

    batch_size: The number of images to bring back per batch. If this is set to 0 or a negative integer, then no batching is done. Default: 50

    buffer_pixels: Number of pixels from the bottom before loading of a new batch of images. Default: 2000

    If you want to load more images pre-emptively, try increasing the buffer_pixels. That way, loading happens more quickly off-screen. But, the more unnecessary pictures will be loaded at the end of a user’s visit, i.e. the photos loaded just before the user closes their browser and which they never saw.

    Sorry, no such feature at the moment. The title you see is the Alt text of the image, which I create out of the title of the original photo plus the name of the target post or page.
