Social Gallery/Latest Blog Entries Plugin and DMS issue

Recommended Posts

I am using a plug-in I purchased from Pagelines called "Latest Blog
Entries" (LBE). I am also using a plug-in called Social Gallery (SG). SG
allows you to create a blog gallery where blogs can be accessed via a
facebook-like image gallery. Utilizing LBE as a blog gallery on one of my
DMS theme pages, SG is not able to access the image (as it normally does), and
instead takes me to the blog post. Apparently, there is some code issue
that is overwriting SG's settings. I have deactivated all my other plug-ins
(except the theme of course), but to no avail. Can you provide any
direction here? I have contacted the SG staff, but they have not been able
to solve the problem - they believe it is an issue with the DMS theme. Any
ideas?

Hi, can you provide a link to the site and let us know if the folks at SG have downloaded DMS and tested?  I've dealt with a number of plugin developers and suggested they get the free DMS version for testing.  It's been quite successful in letting them test their products in the DMS environment.

 

What exactly do you see when looking at this gallery?  Some screenshots would help! :)

The developer just sent me some "code" to try out... so let me give it a whirl and I'll be in touch.  If you want to check out the site (currently under construction), go to almostoff.com and click on recent posts.  You'll see SG trying to locate the image (unsuccessfully) when you click on a thumbnail.

 

Thanks!

It looks to me like it's going to Facebook to find the image. Is that correct?

Nope.  It is trying to locate the image via wp.  None of the images are on facebook, but are rather located in the typical media file of blog posts.  The SG gallery allows you to illustrate your images via a facebook look-alike gallery, and then users can "comment" or like your posts, which are then posted on facebook.  Pretty cool, when it works. 

 

I believe it's some issue that will needs to be corrected with CSS.  DMG is somehow overriding the SG galleries attempt to locate the image.  I'm not a code guy, but I'm guessing that I need some specific code that can override this issue.

Hi,

 

If you're having an issue with a plugin you will need to contact the developer of the plugin for assistance. Also, I don't believe this issue is related to CSS, if the image can not be located, then its most likely a conflict with the plugin and DMS.


Please search our forums, before posting!

If you require any further assistance on this topic let us know.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Still no luck resolving this issue.  Basically would like to have the "Latest Blog Entries" developer weigh-in if possible.  I would like for the user to be able to click on the image in the "Latest Blog Entries" Gallery, which would then take them directly to the Social Gallery (provided by Social Gallery plug-in) where all the blog images could be viewed in a scrolling gallery - while all the blog pages would be completely skipped.  I only want to use the LBE plug-in to access blog images via SG.

 

You can check out the issue at almostoff.com/recent posts

 

Shouldn't be too complicated, I just don't know how to accomplish the task.

The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

      Hi,
       
      I have installed the LBE plugin recently and it worked perfectly. Than, to be honest, I am not sure whether I have changed something on my site (I did not installed new plugin for sure, but I've played with DMS Pro plugin, also disabled and enabled some plugins) I do not see the images on the LBE. The frames are there, if I scroll over with mouse I see the image tag, but the images are not there.
       
      I am serving my images through Cloudinary and I did not have any problem with this service so far. I tried DOM explorer and I receive the following error message:
       
      DOM7009: Unable to decode image at URL: 'https://res.cloudinary.com/high-tech-news/image/upload/c_crop,h_500,w_900,x_0,y_3/h_100,w_180/v1415456211/HTC-Desire-Eye_gp7dwt.jpg'.
      File: HTC-Desire-Eye_gp7dwt.jpg
       
      Could you help me out sorting this issue? Does this issue looks familiar to anyone?

      Hi tmeister,
       
      There is an irrelevant line showing in the right side of the section while using Firefox.

      Hi
       
      I have this section installed on a site with a black background and this makes the navigation arrows very difficult to see. Can you please tell me how to change the appearance of them? I'm not great with code, so if there is any custom coding involved can you please let me have the code and also tell me where on the site to place it?
       
      Thanks
       
      Allan
