Hover text and background

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I just purchased the Out of the MediaBox plugin, which I'm excited to use. Everything is installed on the local testing server and I'm able to drag the section into the layouts and add an image, et cetera. However for some reason the hover text isn't working, a background image has been uploaded as mentioned that it's needed. Am I missing something?

 

Thanks.

Hi

thanks for the purchase.

the hover title and text should be working - here's a couple of things to try:
have you set all the options: position, width, opacity etc? 
have you published and then refreshed?

I've tried everything. Still not working, different browsers, emptied cache and cookies. Still nothing. I can try and reinstall the plugin. It was originally placed in the "sections" folder of the child theme. Where else would I install it?

That's what it was. Looks like the section had to be installed as a regular plugin. Seems to be working now. Would you be able to add an option to have a hover image displayed?

great - you solved it - thats the same for all DMS extensions - add them as plugins. 


I am not sure i follow your feature request - are you saying you would like an image to appear in the hover area? 
Would this be in addition to the title and text? Or instead of? Would there still be a background image?

Good to know on the DMS extensions.

 

 

Ideally what I'd like, is to have the option to add a hover background image and keep the existing options the same. So if you wanted to have an overlay and text to the background image you could as well. Does this make sense?

if you want to have an image appear in the hover you could add it to the text box using html  - ie

<img src="/wp-content/uploads/myimage" alt="myimage" />

      Hi there
       
      I have been following a post on the News Views Plugin that I have bought, about a bug that means you cant select a category of post to display or group of categories
       
      they have posted this :-

      The multi select issue was not working due to small bug in the DMS .js library. This has now been identified and a patch has been applied that will be in a future update of DMS. 

      We have tested this locally and it solves the issue. you can either wait for the update to DMS to be published or if you like you can add the following code to your child themes functions.php file
       

      */
      function pl_do_shortcode(opt) {
          
      +    /* If we are not a string, bail out! */
      +    if( 'string' !== typeof opt || ! opt.length )
      +        return opt
      +
          var match = opt.match( /\[([^\]]*)/ ) || false
          var shortcode = (match) ? match[1] : false
      We hope that this helps. 

      Thanks again for your patience

      Do pagelines know about this issue and is there a local work around as they say it cant be added to the function.php as its a pagelines bug?
       
      The plugin is useless really for me as is as I want to display the post categories....a work around to allow it to do this would be good...
       
      thanks

      Hi- first off, I love your plugin, it really is a great product.
       
      I was wondering if you have/would consider adding the ability to add custom class CSS for the image.  For example, I'd like to have the image to have the .img-polaroid style, but I can't (without adding custom css in the style.css file).
       
      Thanks!

      Hi-
       
      I've noticed that the mediabox bg image isn't responsive.  Is this a bug or is this on purpose?
       
      Here's a screenshot.. the logos (which is the background image) begin to disappear when the browser is smaller.
