Response Gallery

Hi,

I got a problem with response gallery. It functions quite well, the only thing is, that it doesn't show up on the main blog page in (blog layout mode, not magazine mode), if used in a blog post and "post/blog page" is marked under "full post content" in the main site options.

Means: I got a photoblog, where I got one photo per blogpost shown up in full width on the blog page underneath each other. If I put a response gallery into a post instead of a single photo, no photo is shown up on the blog page. Inserting a single photo additional to the response gallery is no option, because it looks crappy.

Can anyone help?

Hi,

I apologise but I am not quite sure what you're trying to do. Would it be possible for you to provide a few screenshots showing the issue and a concept image of how you would like this to look please.

Well, I attached to files. On one you can see the blog post, where the response gallery gets displayed correctly, as it should be. The other one is a screenshot of the blog page, where the blog posts where I put in one photo are displayed nicely, but the post that contains the response gallery is displayed without anything.

What I'd like to see is that the response gallery is shown up also on the blog page (which is set to display full content posts).

Alternatively it would be ok to display an image there and when you click it, the post opens, and the repsonse gallery is shown up. what i do not want is to put a single photo into the post which shows up additionally to the gallery, just to display anything on the blog page.

Hi, the Response Gallery, at present, does not work in Posts. It only works in pages. Many apologies for the confusion.

Wrong, it does work in posts. In fact it is inserted in a post, and it works fine (see screenshots). The only problem is, that it does not get displayed on the blog page (full content mode).

Do you mean in the excerpts? I don't think it's supposed to work that way. If that's what you're going for, then just set the blog & posts option to not display exceprts on the blog page.

I think I set the theme options to show full post content on the blog page and not excerpts, if that's what you mean (see file attached). Or is there any other option that i did not see?

The question you raised earlier about whether the Response Gallery works in posts was passed along directly to the developer who gave me the answer I provided. You're expectations of that gallery showing up in what is essentially a full post excerpt are not practical.

Please consider that in a blog page, even if you've set it to full posts, it's not pulling the entire post into that page. It's merely pulling the full body of post's TEXT and standard images into the excerpt field dynamically and showing a long excerpt. It will not pull the Response Gallery as it's a special element.

Unfortunately, this cannot be fixed at this time.

      I've set the width of my Blog photos and videos at 560 pixels wide. How do I set the text width the same?

      Help, I need to get straight alignment between the three column images on Mac's landing page at the bottom of the page.  The Youtube video embed into the media box "text and HTML" box results in 10 or so pixels below the adjacent column images.  I did a test replacing the Youtube video with a photo of the same resolution and it aligned with the other right photo.  The problem is with the Youtube video.
       
      Website URL: http://test.macelectricco.com/
      Framework Version: 2.0.4
      WordPress Version: 3.9.1
      Plugins in Use: JetPack, SFDC web to lead, Akismet, Google Doc Embedder, WP Google Fonts

      Screenshots: see attached
      Details: The About page has a 3 column section below a slider.  The middle box is a Youtube video embed in the media box text section but it will not align with the left and right photos thus making it out of alignment.  I did a test with a photo the same resolution as the left and right boxes and it aligned perfect 600X350 which leads me to believe that a Youtube embed is causing the alignment problem.  I deleted fall back css custom code

      I am having difficulty understanding how flipper pulls images from my posts.  Currently, it's not pulling images from my posts and I'm not sure how to get it to pull the images.
       
      Can someone help?

      Hi,
       
      Since I charged the previous version of DMS, I can't upload any image. When I upload one, the result is a "broken" image, and I had to insert them from another URL. Do you know why it is and how can I fix it?
       
      Thank you very much, and good work with DMS.
       
      Gianmarco.
