Hi Nick

Hi Nick

 

I bought Gridly recently and installed it here:

 

http://villageherb.c...lage-herb-farm/

 

 

It works fine, but there are irritating limitations.

 

Two things:

 

1/ Could it please be set so one of the fields (alt text or title - or a new custom field?) shows up as hover text (ideally on thumbs in the grid as well as enlargements)?

 

2/  could it please be set so one of the fields (alt text or title - or a new custom field?) appears on enlargements? At present, i can only get labels to appear on the grid images, not the enlargements. This is especially annoying because when viewed on a mobile device even the grid labels don't show up properly - so mobile phone users never get to see accompanying text in full.

 

These changes would make this a very useful and attractive section. Without them, I think it's rather limited as a way of presenting information.

I'll look into it. It currently has captions, just not in lightbox. That was the original plan but because the ligthbox is draw up after the DOM it makes it difficult.

Cool.

 

It's a neat section already, but that would definitely make it better. Good luck grappling with the beast :-)
