Gridly - hovertext request

Recommended Posts


Hi Nick

Hi Nick


I bought Gridly recently and installed it here:





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.

Something big is coming for DMS + photographers.

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

      Hi I purchased gridly for dms and dropped it in the sections folder. But the section does not show up in dms. It works perfectly with other sections for dms I bought but not with gridly. And yes, I unziped it =)

      I just purchased gridly and tried playing around with it on my local set-up. Everything is great until I update the layout. I'm sure I'm having a moment, but I'm adding the numbers in the layout box (ie, I have 6 photos so I'm adding 222 for three rows of two), publishing, and refreshing- then nothing. Ideas on what I'm doing wrong? Thanks!

      I have just purchased Gridly but i seem to be a bit stuck.
      I am not sure how to add more images. I set the number of images to 10 in the dropdown provided on the page, but only the three original fields are displayed.
      I have refreshed, saved, edited, but to no avail - still the same three fields.
      Is there any additional documentation?

      Dear Nick,
      So happy to have found Gridly...However:  How do I make multiple instances of it?  It is setup for me to use on my blog page...but how would I use it on another page with a different set of images??
      Hope you can help!!
