I just purchased Image Grid expressly to be used in a DMS site. It says right on the sales page that it is designed for DMS. However, there is not one word written about how to use the product. I found an old post where you refer to a screencast tutorial. that tutorial was done with an old Pagelines site (not DMS) and the writing is not in english and your audio cuts out half way through.

 

If you are going to sell a $20 plugin should you not tell the buyer how to use it?

Thank you for the purchasing and sorry that my instructions is not clear. I will make a video and post it on the product page soon.

Have you gotten it to work?

Hello, thanks for your answer, but the video doesn't show the tuto, like rich said earlier : 

 

 that tutorial was done with an old Pagelines site (not DMS) and the writing is not in english and your audio cuts out half way through.

 

 

 

HELP!

OK. I've finally had time to try to make this plugin work. I created a screencast of my results. It shows you how to install Image Grid and set it up for DMS - and it's in Engligh. It also shows that the final product is fatally flawed. I invite ahansson89 to watch what I did and help me to understand where I've gone wrong (if anywhere). The Image Grid does not render properly on a number of different browsers - most notably Chrome.

 

I  believe that the 'rollover' grey box for image description should be an option, not mandatory. There is no option to turn this feature off and there should be.

 

If you cannot show me how to use it correctly I'd like my money back.

 

My screencast is at

Thanks Rich,

At least it works 'a little' for you, in the site I'm working at I just get an admin notices, no pictures…

Good idea with setting default text to nothing. I will update this.

About the stackering images I know what is going on there and I will fix it in an update later today.

I cannot find the new version. The old version installed on one of my sites does not say there is an update available. I don't know what you mean by "Get it from /my-account". I went to your website, logged in. The 'my account' section seems to think that I have only purchased 'folio' and will allow me to download THAT again, but not the image grid.

 

Please help me to with VERY SPECIFIC instructions to get this new, and hopefully working, version of Image Grid.

PageLines have problems with their API that serves the files today and yesterday.

So even though I already pushed the files, you will not be able to get the files before the API is back up.

I already asked when they will be back up, but I have not got a reply yet, so you should email hello@pagelines.com and ask when it will be back up.

This is out of my hands and we need to wait for PageLines to fix it.

I will look into different ways to serve updates in the future.

The downloads are working again now, so everyone should be able to see it in wp-admin. If not you can download it from pagelines.com/my-account/
