Step-by-step Instruction “How to add a Gallery”

I cannot view my Gallery page

  1. 1. First of all, you should create your first Gallery page and select ‘Gallery’ in the list of available templates (it will be used for displaying the Gallery).
  2. 2. If you cannot find ‘Gallery’ in the list of available templates, then just copy it from the directory `/wp-content/plugins/gallery-plugin/template/` or `/wp-content/plugins/gallery-plugin-pro/template/`to your theme directory.

How to use the plugin?

  1. 1. Click ‘Add New’ in the ‘Galleries’ menu and fill out your page.
  2. 2. Add or Upload pictures via ‘Add Media’ button.
  3. 3. Save the page.

View a Step-by-step Instruction “How to add a Gallery”

I’m getting the following error: “Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_post_thumbnail_id()”. What should I do?

This error means that your theme doesn’t support thumbnail option, in order to add this option please find the file ‘functions.php’ in your theme and add the following strings to this file:
add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'theme_setup' );
function theme_setup() {
add_theme_support( 'post-thumbnails' );
}
After that your theme will support thumbnail option and the error will disappear.

How to change image order on the single gallery page?

Please open the menu “Galleries” and choose a gallery from the list. It will take you to the gallery editing page. Use the drag and drop function to change the order of the images and do not forget to save the post. Do not forget to select `Sort images by` -> `Sorting order in the Gallery` in the plugin settings.

Why sorting images in the gallery doesn’t work?

Sorting images can be changed due to the Masonry plugin features.

I am using WP with rtl language and I have a problem with the lightbox displaying on iPad/iPhone.

1. 1. In the file header.php you should substitute <html <?php language_attributes(); ?>> with <html>
2. Remove the “direction:rtl” from the css of the body, and move it to the main wrapper. For example, in your theme CSS file (usually it’s rtl.css) remove the following lines:
body {
direction:rtl;
}
and add (for the themes Twenty Eleven or Twenty Ten):
.hfeed {
direction:rtl;
}

I have some problems with the plugin’s work. What Information should I provide to receive proper support?

Please make sure that the problem hasn’t been discussed yet on our forum (http://support.bestwebsoft.com). If no, please provide the following data along with your problem’s description:

  1. 1. the link to the page where the problem occurs
  2. 2. the name of the plugin and its version. If you are using a pro version – your order number.
  3. 3. the version of your WordPress installation
  4. 4. copy and paste into the message your system status report. Please read more here: Instruction on System Status

    Thank You for this plugin!

  2. Byron

    I can not turn off the side bars on the gallery page. I am using the side bars on other pages and need to turn it off some how on the gallery page. Do you have any suggestions?

    • bws_com

      Please follow the instructions below.

      Open ‘gallery-template.php’ and ‘gallery-single-template.php’ file, in the end of the file find the string below:

      < ?php get_sidebar(); ?>

      and remove this string.

      • Martha's SOS

        I have followed your advise to remove the string however, I am still seeing the sidebar. The website I am working on is not published yet.

        • bws_com

          There are several reasons of this issue can be:

          1) Perhaps, it is cache.
          2) It is possible that you didn’t save changes in the file or didn’t upload file to the server.
          3) You have made changes in wrong file.

  3. Escorts New York

    Thanks for this nice plugin

  4. ehsan

    Hello . how can i create a link to all albums in wordpress frontend ?
    what is the link ?

    • bws_com

      1. First of all, you need to create your first Gallery page and choose ‘Gallery’ from the list of available templates (which will be used for displaying our gallery).
      2. If you cannot find ‘Gallery’ in the list of available templates, then just copy it from `/wp-content/plugins/gallery-plugin/template/` directory to your templates directory.

  5. Bade Ayoade

    Found your plugin extremely useful. Thanks

  6. Nedim Hazar

    Very nice!
    Is it possible to that the gallery appears below text content, when the short code [print_gllr id=Your_gallery_id] is included?

    • bws_com

      This issue was fixed in version 3.06.

  7. Thomas Lee

    It would be really great if you’d add the possibility of putting pictures that exist in Media in the gallery.

    • bws_com

      We have such kind of option in our plugin.

      • Tibor

        How can I enable it? I only see this “Choose an image to upload: Upload a file”. Thanks for the quick answer 🙂

        • bws_lvp

          Hello Tibor,

          you should upload the files there at first, save gallery and then you can add other parameters.

          • Manuel

            Would you kindly explain how to do this? I already have images in the Media Gallery but when i create the gallery page I only see the “upload a file’. How can I add the other parameters that you mentioned?

            Thanks .

          • bws_lvp

            Hello Manuel,

            This opportunity doesn’t exist. You can attach files to the gallery via uploading them on the gallery page.

            Kind regards

          • Mark

            But he was asking about pictures that have already been uploaded. In other words, pictures that are posted on other pages or posts. Or at least that’s what I thought was being asked. If not, I’d like to know how to do that.

          • bws_lvp

            Hello Mark,

            At the moment gallery works only with attached images, and doesn’t work with images, which are already present in media gallery.

            Kind regards

  8. Marc

    how to fix the “no comments allowed” Bug?

    Made a Post with a gallery and there are “no comments allowed”. If i disable the plugin, the comment functions works.

    any hint?

    • bws_com

      It is possible that the comments are not allowed. Try to allow the comments for gallery:

      Please open plugin and after string 889:

      $gllr_output = ob_get_clean();

      Add string below:

      wp_reset_query();

        • bws_com

          If you are not using a shortcode then it is necessary to remove ‘comments’ in the ‘gallery-single-template.php’ file in your theme.

          • Stephen Simmons

            i still cannot figure out how to turn off comments on the images i place in my gallery (from my media). i am using the shortcode

            whenever i select any of my images: http://stephensimmonsmusic.com/?page_id=22

            there is spam on almost all of them…i have comments disabled for entire theme, but they show on the gallery images. please advise.

            thanks,
            stephen

          • bws_lvp

            Stephen,

            this is not our plugin, please contact developers of this plugin.

      • Céline

        Good morning,

        I am trying to insert comments on my slideshows but I have a message saying “comments are not allowed”. Then I tried to find the line $gllr_output = ob_get_clean(); on the code but I can’t find it…
        Can you help me?
        Many thanks in advance!

        • bws_lvp

          Hello Celine,

          Please clarify, where you want to add comments – to the gallery page with images or to the lightbox? Why you are looking $gllr_output ?

          Kind regards

  9. Surj

    Can you tell me how to turn off the thumbnail borders

    • bws_com

      In order to turn off the thumbnail borders you can modify styles in the ‘style.css’ file in plugin:

      .gallery img {
      border: 10px solid #F1F1F1;
      }

      Or you can add strings below to the style file of your theme:

      .gallery img {
      border: none !important;
      }

      • JP

        was able to remove the 10px grey thumbnail border per instructions. however, which piece of css code controls the black 1 px box around the thumbnail images – would like to remove that as well. thnx!

        • Anna

          Hi JP,

          Please, add the following lines to the end of your theme’s css file:

          #content .gallery_box_single .gallery .gllr_image_block p {
          border: none !important;
          }

          Sincerely

  10. shawn

    I made a bunch of galleries and when I use the shortcode to link to each specific gallery in a post, I get the same gallery every time no matter what post. for example your shortcode = my-gallery and shortcode = another-gallery would bring up the same gallery.

    • bws_com

      You are using wrong value in the shortcode. It is necessary to insert ‘post id’ instead of ‘post slug’ in the shortcode (ie. numbers, not letters).

      • Surj

        I have the same issue. I can see the field for the slug after enabling it in the screen options, but where do I find the gallery post id?

        • bws_com

          The easiest way is to go on the page of the editing of one gallery in the admin panel and there will be the path like
          wp-admin/post.php?post=1784&action=edit in the line of the browser, so 1784 it is post_id

  11. stefan

    Found your plugin extremely useful and easy to use and configure. Thanks

    but I have a little issue, when I try to increase the size of the cover album for gallery and the Size for gallery image, the images loss resolution and see pretty bad, how can I solve this issue?

    thanks a lot!

    • bws_com

      If the images size was changed in the plugin setting, then you need to upload these images once again, because WordPress is not allowed to change size for created images while you are uploading them (you can find information about it on our plugin settings page, under ‘Size for gallery image’ fields).

  12. edi

    Hi,

    I want to show in side bar last few uploaded into galleries images. How to do this?

    How to stream these same images as RSS?

    • bws_com

      I want to show in side bar last few uploaded into galleries images. How to do this?

      Unfortunately we don’t have such kind of option in our plugin.

      How to stream these same images as RSS?

      RSS doesn’t allow to display ‘custom post type’. We don’t have such kind of option in our plugin.

  13. Jb

    Hey I am trying to get separate gallery pages. One group shows up but not the other. What can I do? What is a plugin id.

    • bws_com

      Please insert a shortcode [print_gllr id=344] .
      344 is a gallery post id. Please make sure that there are no extra white spaces between id=344.

  14. Peter

    Hello! I’m wondering how to tell which image is the featured image in a gallery.

    I’ve found this plugin extremely reliable and malleable, so thanks! i’ll post a link to the final product when it’s done!

    • bws_com

      There is the block “featured imgae” at the right sidebar on the page of the editing of the gallery – please set up the necessary image as featured image in it. Here you can find more detailed information http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Thumbnails

  15. Justin

    My problem is that it’s not calling galleries properly, no matter what gallery ID I use all the galleries only display the latest thumbnails I’ve uploaded, which is very odd.

    • bws_com

      Please be sure that you use post id but not post slug (it should be number but not the line). In order to check this please go to page of the editing of one certain gallery in the admin panel, there you can see URL like wp-admin/post.php?post=1784&action=edit in the browser line – number 1784 it is post id. Please check the correctnes of the shortcode [print_gllr id=1784] – the space should be just between print_gllr and id.

  16. Gaurang

    Helloo.. i get this error

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_post_thumbnail_id() in D:\Sites\single57\koollook\webroot\wp-content\themes\tree-house\gallery-template.php on line 53.

    Hi, I just installed your plugin and it looks great however I can’t upload photos.
    I get this error:

    I read in one of the post that I had to change the permission in the file folder and I did so, however I still have the same problem!
    Can you help?
    thank you

    • bws_com

      Please set up 777 for the following folders:

      – plugins
      – gallery-plugin
      – upload
      – files
      and use the standard uploader of WordPress (there is the icon Media above content editor on the page of the editing of one gallery in the admin panel.

    • Ollie

      Hello, I have the same problem like Alessia with uploading photo. This plugin, worked properly and one day suddenly confusing error that the picture is undefinedxundefined. I set on folders plugins, gallery-plugin, upload, files 777 permissions and the bug is still there. Please help..

      • bws_com

        Please use a standard WordPress uploader on the editing gallery page and after that you can work in the image’s block which is located under editor (add text, change the order and ect.).

  18. acj

    I am having the same problem that Shawn was having – I use the shortcode to link to each specific gallery in a post, I get the same gallery every time no matter what post. I don’t see where the post ID is listed…only the slug. How can I get the postID? The URL shows the slug and the slug is everywhere I look.

    • bws_com

      Please go to page of the editing of one certain gallery in the admin panel, there you can see URL like wp-admin/post.php?post=1784&action=edit in the browser line – number 1784 it is post id.

    Hi, great plugin.

    Is it possible to change the text “Show Photo” to “Show Photos” on the gallery list screen?

        Hello I am also trying to change ‘photo’ to ‘photos’ and I’ve looked in the gallery-plugin.php file but can’t see where to do so. I also would like to know if there is a way to set the width of the container displaying the albums wider? Currently it shows only two albums on a page but there is room for many.

        • Wnela Wallace

          looking in the code it seems like the number of albums showing on the page is a variable that is set somewhere on the wordpress admin. Can you tell me where this is done?

          • bws_lvp

            Wnela,

            the plugin showing the number of albums on the page uses the setting posts_per_page on the page wp-admin/options-reading.php

        • bws_lvp

          Hello Wnela,

          This can be changed in the admin panel on the page wp-admin/admin.php?page=gallery-plugin.php

  20. Bill Langis

    I am setting up a video art teaching site. And I installed your plug in so all the members could upload their art for reviewing .I already loaded my gallery and it looks great. Is there a way to have the members upload their own work as once I get moving with a lot of members it would be time consuming if I had to do it for them.

    • bws_com

      This will be possible if you provide WordPress admin panel access for your members.

  21. Ryan

    When an image is selected from the gallery, the display box with photo appears behind the header, but infront of the body (twentyeleven theme).

    The header and nav display on top of the launched photo/player. Is there a fix?

    • bws_com

      This issue appears because you have selected z-index:9999 in your theme.
      Please find style.css file, string 503

      #branding {
      border-top: 2px solid #BBBBBB;
      padding-bottom: 10px;
      position: relative;
      z-index: 9999;
      }

      And replace it with the strings below:

      #branding {
      border-top: 2px solid #BBBBBB;
      padding-bottom: 10px;
      position: relative;
      z-index: 9;
      }

      • Edward

        Great plug-in by the way. I’m having the same issue where the lightbox is displaying behind the Header. I went into the style.css and changed z-index from 9999 to z-index 9, but the lightbox is still showing behind the header. Is there an alternative solution? Thanks.

        • Anton

          Please clear the cache of the browser and then everything will be displayed correctly.

    Hi. I uploaded lots of photos, in full quality, and it finished uploading them. By the time I click save, the session timed out, and the photos arent listed.. The photos are on the server, and I can see them in FTP. Do I have to reupload them?

    • bws_com

      If you are trying to upload to many files it is possible that script has not enough time to process them.
      Try to upload smaller quantity of files or change images size or use standard WordPress media uploader on the editing gallery page.

  23. Aldo

    Hello, great plugin. I have 2 questions:
    1. How to call a gallery inside a php file?
    2. How to show the last 4 uploaded photos in a php file?
    I need everything in php please…

    • bws_com

      1.

      How to call a gallery inside a php file?

      – it is possible to call only single gallery in the general php file, please write the following line:
      < ?php if ( function_exists( "gllr_shortcode" ) echo gllr_shortcode( $attr ); ?>
      $attr – this is array kind of ‘id’=>345, where 345 is id of the post of the gallery

      – unfortunately there is no such functional

  24. Paul Maisonneuve

    sorry, site is still under construction and you can’t see, but I’m really confused as to how you generated an albums page like in your screenshot where there is only 1 images shows and then the name and text from the actual gallery are displayed. I only have found the one shortcode that generates the page full of thumbnails. Works great from there, but I really need to have a page with the single album “covers”. Please tell me how?

    • bws_com

      = I cannot view my Gallery page =

      1. First of all, you need to create your first Gallery page and choose ‘Gallery’ from the list of available templates (which will be used for displaying our gallery).
      2. If you cannot find ‘Gallery’ in the list of available templates, then just copy it from `/wp-content/plugins/gallery-plugin/template/` directory to your templates directory.

    Hi,

    I really like your plugin and want to use it on my page. It works good, but I need to set an “alt” and” title” for the images. Is it possible?

    • bws_com

      We have a title option and provision for ‘alt’ in process, but it is not allowed to include value (in orderto block popups while you are prompting), you can add call of a necessary text.

  26. Stan Woodard

    Thanks for the plugin!

    I have questions about formatting thimbs and the larger gallery images.

    On the thumbs I would like to center align images in the box; and would also like to be able to remover the box.

    I saw an answer above about removing the box but it doesn’t seem to have any effect AND on alignment, I changed the .format-gallery .gallery-thumb parameters, as below (with no effect)

    /* =Gallery
    ———————————————– */

    .format-gallery .gallery-thumb {
    float: center;
    display: block;
    margin: 0 0 0 0;
    }
    .gallery img {
    border: none !important;
    }

    On the large gallery image I would like to change the background color as well as the text color. Can you help with these issues. )BTW, I am using an amended Twentyeleven.) Thanks,

    • bws_com

      Please write strings below for ‘remover the box’ in the ‘style.css’ file of your theme:

      #content .gallery_box li img {
      border: none !important;
      padding: 0 !important;
      }

  27. mmm

    If I understand, you can’t use this in a page, only a post because you need the ID. Correct?

    I can see how to create galleries in WP but not albums. I want 1 gallery with several albums.

    • bws_com

      You can use current shortcode in the pages and in the posts.
      In order to create a page with albums please follow the instruction below:

        I am having the same problem. When I select to add a new gallery, I don’t see where a template can be selected. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

        • bws_com

          There is no any selecting template block on the ‘add a new gallery’ page.
          You can select the template for the general page (add/edit page) and for the gallery – plugin will selects necessary template.

    i have success fully installed gallery how can i use it as a slider on my front page

    • bws_com

      Our plugin doesn’t intend for slider option. It is appropriate for images displaying which you want to share with other people on separate page.

    can you help me i cant find where to upload images or how to upload images. is there any tutorial how to set up a gallery

    • bws_com

      Here is the quote from the file readme.txt that can be found in the folder of the plugin or on the page of the plagin on WordPress:

      = How to add an image? =

      – Choose the necessary gallery from the list on the Galleries page in admin section (or create a new gallery – choose ‘Add New’ from the ‘Galleries’ menu).
      – Use the option ‘Upload a file’ available in the uploader, choose the necessary pictures and click ‘Open’
      – The files uploading process will start.
      – Once all pictures are uploaded, please save the page.
      – If you see the message ‘Please enable JavaScript to use the file uploader.’, you should enable JavaScript in your browser.

      = How to add many image? =

      The multiple files upload is supported by all modern browsers except Internet Explorer.

    Thanks for you wonderful your gallery. but I have one issue. Default is three album per page. Right?
    Please let me know how to increase the #of album per page. I’d like to increase 6 or 9 albums per page. Thanks.

    • bws_com

      The quantity of albums on your page is related to the settings page of your theme (Settings->read). It is not related to the plugin’s settings.

    I’m getting the following message because of the theme I’m using. I’m a newb at this. Where do I paste the files in my directory theme?

    The following files “gallery-template.php” and “gallery-single-template.php” were not found in the directory of your theme. Please copy them from the directory `/wp-content/plugins/gallery-plugin/template/` to the directory of your theme for the correct work of the Gallery plugin

    Thanks so much

    • bws_com

      You have installed Gallery plugin, but it needs to have “gallery-template.php” and “gallery-single-template.php” files for correct work. These files are located in your theme. You got this error message because plugin is searching for theses files and couldn’t find them.
      Please follow the instructions:

      The following files “gallery-template.php” and “gallery-single-template.php” were not found in the directory of your theme. Please copy them from the directory `/wp-content/plugins/gallery-
      plugin/template/` to the directory of your theme for the correct work of the Gallery plugin.

    Hi,

    Excellent plugin! Thank you!!

    One question: I wanted to be able to change the order of the images without having to reload everything. I found out that the last image loaded goes to the very bottom of the page. Is there a way to modify the order the pictures appear?

    Regards,

    Andre Lefebvre

    • bws_com

      You can change order of images displaying for gallery on the page in the WordPress admin panel :

      wp-admin/admin.php?page=gallery-plugin.php ===> ‘Attachments order by’ block.

      You can choose Attachments order by -> attachments order settings and select sorting on the ‘gallery’ tab in the media block on the editing gallery page. The order is changing when you are using dragging-and-dropping images (higher or lower).

  33. Jeff

    Is there a way to make the captions or the images themselves into hyperlinks that take you to other pages (outside or within your site)? I tried inserting it as HTML text, but it messed up the formatting. I tried using this plugin because the one WP uses just wasn’t formatting right.

    • bws_com

      You can add a text-link to the description of the image.

  34. Annie Rizzini

    Hello from Brazil! I`d like to use the plugin in the same site but in diferents pages with diferents galleries. Is any way to use the plugin twice in the same site?

    Sorry for my english!

    • bws_com

      It is necessary to add shortcodes to each gallery. You can find explanation on the WordPress plugin page or in the admin panel on the plugin settings page.

  35. Marcus

    I can’t see the ” Upload a file ” button . Isn’t appearing, so I can’t upload my images.

    • bws_com

      You can use a standard WordPress uploader (via media button above the editor).

  36. Oleg

    Hi,
    is it possible to connect from front end to a single gallery, that the gallery gets displayed without any further clicks required?
    When I put [print_gllr id=29] shortcode whenever I use “display=short” or not I first get a blank page gallery icon with “see photo” text.
    I have only one gallery and none will be added.

    • bws_com

      The shortcode [print_gllr id=29] should display full gallery without any links, but make sure that you added a shortcode to the page and did not select gallery template. It is necessary to have ‘Default’ template in order to get the shortcode works correctly.

  37. Glen

    How can I get more than just one Gallery to show in the Gallery page? or possibly make the page number more noticeable.

    • bws_com

      In order to have more then one gallery you can use a special ‘Gallery’ template. It is necessary to create a page and select this template from the templates list.

      = I cannot view my Gallery page =

      1. First of all, you need to create your first Gallery page and choose ‘Gallery’ from the list of available templates (which will be used for displaying our gallery).
      2. If you cannot find ‘Gallery’ in the list of available templates, then just copy it from `/wp-content/plugins/gallery-plugin/template/` directory to your templates directory.

    How do I get more than one Gallery to show up on the main Gallery Template page?

  39. phill

    Hi, thnx for your nice free plugin, Nice job.
    – I removed from both gallery-template.php and gallery-single-template.php and save truly, but the sidebar still shown in gallery pages. how to fix this?
    – Is it possible to set a previously made “Page Template” for gallery page?

    • bws_com

      It is necessary to do all these actions in the files of your theme (not in the plugin’s files). Do you have a cacheing plugin? Please clean the cache.

  40. Mitesh Shah

    I am using gallery plug in.. but the problem is i upload image of more than 1000 pixels and when i see images in gallery on front page the images are loosing their size.. i.e. they are getting smaller to the size i uploaded .. its fine with small size images but big size images are loosing their size

    • bws_com

      Yes, plugin is set to cut images which size more then 1000 px in order to allow users( who has not too big screens)to view images comfortably.
      1) Please find string 34 in the ‘gallery-single-template.php’ file of your theme:

      $image_attributes_large = wp_get_attachment_image_src( $attachment->ID, 'large' );

      Replace ‘large’ with ‘full’ in this string.

      2) If you are using a shortcode, then please find string 926 in the ‘gallery-plugin.php’ file in the plugin:

      $image_attributes_large = wp_get_attachment_image_src( $attachment->ID, 'large' ); ,

      Replace ‘large’ with ‘full’ in this string.

      • peter lazarov

        I change this (large with full) and image size still stay the same.
        My images are 1000×1413 and show 589×833 or to the edge of browser
        Can’t they show full size, to expand over the screen and have to scroll for see it.

        • bws_lvp

          Hello Peter,

          Please provide the page URL and access to your admin area, then we can check what exactly is wrong.

          Waiting for your reply.

          Kind regards

  41. alex

    Hello I have created two galleries. I have included sizes 100X100, in the setup menu.
    But I would add new dimensions to 100×150 for one of two galleries. how can I do?

    • bws_com

      It is impossible to add new settings for the one of two galleries, because settings are applying to all galleries.

  42. Kadir

    Hello,

    is there any codesnippet I can paste in my own site templates, because the gallery prints out a searchfield, my site structure etc. and I can’t find that in the two gallery templates.

    Thanks!

    • bws_com

      In order to use your template, please use a shortcode which it necessary to insert to the content of your page or post.

  43. Oleg

    Excellent plugin, does what promises no glitches. Excellent support! My question got answered in a flash and I was up and running a minute later.
    Highly recommendable.

  44. Erin

    Is it possible to see the thumbnail images of pictures that are in portrait format in the correct orientation, versus sideways? I am able to get the actual picture in the lightbox to show the correct way, but not the thumbnail of it. Can this be fixed?

    • bws_com

      As we can see almost all thumbnails are oriented correctly, incorrectly displayed images which are ‘turn up’. Script couldn’t be able to turn images, it is necessary to do it before uploading the image.

  45. Clement

    Hello,
    how can i hide the caption under my picture in the gallery and keep it in high resolution (in the box) ?
    Thanks

    • bws_com

      1) Do not fill with text under image in the admin panel and you’ll not get ‘caption under my picture’.
      2) It is necessary to add changes to the ‘gallery-single-template.php’ file. Please find the string below:

      $image_attributes_large = wp_get_attachment_image_src( $attachment->ID, 'large' );

      And replace it with :

      $image_attributes_large = wp_get_attachment_image_src( $attachment->ID, 'full' );

  46. Des Walsh

    I’m using your Gallery plugin on a client site http://twintownsgardenclub.com and they would like to hide the thumbnails. I can’t see where I can do that. Could you assist please?

    • bws_com

      The main idea of the plugin is show miniature of all images, in order to provide an ability for users to choose necessary image for the viewing. That is why ‘hide the thumbnails’ option is not exist.

  47. Lukasz

    I proudly use this plugin. It is very flexible and well done. The best thing is i can always count on support from BESTWEBSOFT which solved a lot of issues in short time. Thank You guys !

  48. Estevam

    Hello, I write from Rio de Janeiro. Can I put the images link to open a new window?
    I thank you.

    • Anton

      Yes, just fill URL field under necessary image in the gallery.

      • Carmel James

        This is almost what I’m looking for. I want the images on my site to open in a blank window so they can be closed with the cross and the original page is still there. Will this plug in do that? A simple option under the ATTACHMENT DISPLAY SETTINGS section would be good!

        • bws_lvp

          Please clarify, you need that the image will download not in lightbox, but in another window on the top of the website window. (i.e. as a modal window – as an authentication on Facebook or Twitter)
          We don’t have this functional at this moment, but we can create it – at an additional cost – $20.

          Waiting for your reply.

  49. Blazej

    I have problem on my start page (index.php) I have added proper code to the post but (short box) but it is only display when I am reading one post at once not on front page. How can I fix it? (babcia.ayz.pl first news from top) click and you will find short gallery incide but not on main page with all posts

    • Anton

      You have ‘the_exсerpt()’ function call in the ‘index.php’ file, but gallery shortcode works with ‘the_content()’ only.
      Please see the information below (you can find this information in the WordPress codex):

      When the_content is displayed, the shortcode API will parse any registered shortcodes such as “[myshortcode]”, separate and parse the attributes and content, if any, and pass them the corresponding shortcode handler function. Any string returned (not echoed) by the shortcode handler will be inserted into the post body in place of the shortcode itself.

      1) You can make a call for the the_content() in your template instead of the_exсerpt(), but all posts will be displayed on the main page.
      2) Or do not display galleries on the main page.

  50. Hawx

    Everytime i try to upload a pic i get this Error:

    Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in /var/www/virtual/djbytecode.com/htdocs/wordpress/wp-includes/media.php on line 258″

    • Anton

      1) You have not much execution time for the call processing and actions in the server’s settings.
      2) You are trying to upload a large file or to much small files.
      3) Please use media uploader button on the editing gallery page instead if gallery uploader.
