Recommend me a great Gallery DMS section or Plugin

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm beginning a new website project and one of the highest priorities is a great looking gallery which can be updated easily. For example we'll have separate galleries for various jobs something like the following:

 

Gallery 1 (5 images)

Gallery 2 (6 Images)

Gallery 3 (7 images)

 

I was wondering what sections or plugins people would recommend me to take a look at which work flawlessly with DMS and therefore is responsive if possible?

 

Thanks, James

Personally i've used the gallery from the free pretty photo theme, that works well. There's a few other sections in there which are image related which could also help - http://www.pagelines.com/shop/themes/pretty-photo/


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.

Thanks James,

 

But does this means I need to use the theme Pretty Photo in-order to use its gallery section? Also, I just tried to install the theme Pretty Photo but for some reason it wouldn't install though the Wordpress Theme install?

 

Thanks, J

No you can use the section in DMS or your child theme. Simply download the Pretty Photo theme and then copy the Gallery section folder to your child themes section folder. Then click the Reload Sections in the DMS Toolbar.

Hi guys,

 

Just one other question please. I have loaded in all of the sections from the Pretty Photo theme folder into my child theme folder (nicks-base-theme-master) and they have appeared successfully. However, after having played with the sections they do not seem very intuitive and it's almost like there not working properly. For example the gallery section doesn't stretch across the full width of the column (page) and the shelf section seems to stack the left, middle, right images down the far left side of my page. Do these sections work well with the DMS theme or are they designed to work better within the Pretty Photo theme and therefore they require a fair amount of tweaking?

 

Thanks for the advice,

 

Cheers, J

If the sections are designed purely for the child theme then they will probably have css in the child theme to style them. I've not used them outside of the theme to be honest. I would say if you're looking to use those sections and restyle the theme use the customize plugin with the child theme in place to make your changes.

 

Or copy the css relating to those sections from the style.less of the pretty photo theme and then paste it into your own base theme if you prefer to stick with the blank child theme.

      Hi everyone,
      Flywheel have reported errors on my clients site 'www.racewaredirect.co.uk' and it's not loading. Can someone please provide some information on how to fix this? The site has never experienced these issues before.

      Hi there,
      I've got an issue with 3 websites built with DMS since I migrated them from http to https that I need help with please.
      When any changes are made - e.g. new posts added or existing posts amended - certain sections of the live site seem to break e.g. image headers hang and don't load (b/g on canvas section), sliders hang and don't load (Revslider), flipper section doesn't load.
      Logging in and then clicking 'Edit the site using DMS' seems to fix the problem. Often if I try to open up another browser window to edit the site / re publish I'm unable to as the page wont load / hangs while trying to load.
      Any ideas how to fix this? On a couple of the sites I've installed a caching plugin as I thought it might be a loading speed issue but it's still happening.
      Website URL's can be provided privately.
      Many thanks in advance.

      Hi
      I found this topic
      which talks about a similar issue I am having, but a little different. Hope someone can help me out.
      Best way to see the problem is to view http://cassclayton.com/ on Safari (Mac) compared to Firefox or Chrome. You will see the banner just under the fixed menubar has a gap between the menubar and top of the banner. Looking at Inspector, I found:
      <div class="fixed-top-pusher" style="height: 62px;"></div>
      <script> jQuery('.fixed-top-pusher').height( jQuery('.pl-fixed-top').height() ) </script>
      and indeed it seems the jquery is not always working consistently. For instance, if you simply refresh the page in Safari, it will loose the gap and all looks fine, so is it a browser cache issue that is interacting with the jquery? I do have W3 Total Cache installed. There must be a way to tell the code to make sure jquery is up and running and available to do it's majic?
      And perhaps there is just a better way to do this banner? Originally I tried several DMS sections and used the banner image as background, etc... Kept running into problems with resizing and the left/right parts of the image were getting chopped off. It is important the whole image show, so currently I just use a NextBox section with this code:
      <img src="[pl_site_url]/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/CassClayton-blues-tribute-banner.jpg" width="100%" />
      and it looks the way it should. Is there a better way to place a banner graphic under a fixed navbar and make sure the whole banner graphic displays regardless of screensize?

      Hi,
      I desperately need to deactivate the responsive function on mobile for reasons. It looks so messy with the responsive look on mobile and not navigating or informative at all as it is. 
      I searched for solutions online and tries some of those that I found but nothing worked out. Also I found a previous post on this forum says that this theme pagelines DMS is not meant to be build to deactivate the responsive function... 
      Also tried with widget such as WPtouch to edit the mobile look a little more informative but as I am using "single page" theme on pagelines, the frontpage(main page) never appears on those app.
      Seems like not compatible?
      If there is no way to deactivate responsive function or I'll have to recreate another page just dedicated for a mobile page? or change the theme completely and build a page from scratch?
      I have been searching for this for two days already...
      Could anyone wise and kind out there, please help me?
       
      Thanks,
