    Hi all,

    http://iamsignificant.net/

    On this site, the dynamic content gallery is causing me problems and headaches.

    I created a unique category called : Slider.

    I created a new post which ONLY connects to this unique category.

    I uploaded a pic the site of the gallery and linked it to the page I want it to lead to when that image is clicked on the homepage gallery.

    When I click the image, it leads to an attachment page, but not to the page intended. The page that opens is an attachment page. It has only an image, which when clicked THEN takes me to the intended page.

    I would like to avoid having to go to that empty page, of course. What am I doing wrong?

    Thank you for any help, I’m just stomped!

    Regards,

    Andre

    Hi Andre.

    Try this plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-gallery-custom-links/screenshots/

    I wrote about it 2 weeks ago.

    How’s the music site coming along?

    Hi Brad,

    Thanks for the link. However, this I need to understand the process myself so I can explain it to the client, and any future ones. So far, that gallery doesn’t have clear instructions. Can you figure it out? Why does it seem to obscure to use… ?

    Music is very slow but steady, thanks!

    Regards,

    Andre

    Even using that WP Gallery Custom, the gallery image leads to the attchment page and not the link I specified… Can you look and see if it’s the same for you?

    It should open this page : http://iamsignificant.net/experience-spiritual-direction/

    Yet is opens the category page : http://iamsignificant.net/slider/becoming-love/

    Maybe we shouldn’t specify a category? The gallery method I selected is One Category.

    Regards,

    Andre

    What gallery are you using? The plugin I linked to works with the native gallery.

    There’s a bug in the core WordPress files which has been on Trac for 4 years and unresolved.

    I’m using the Dynamic Content Gallery which is the default for the Metro Theme.

    There’s no gallery for the Metro theme. It must be the native WordPress gallery and that plugin works as I tested it.

    Maybe its a plugin conflict.

    Deactivate all your plugins and check the custom link to see if it works.

    Ah, so WordPrerss is using the Dynamic Content Gallery as its default slider. and the Metro child-Theme is using WP default gallery.

    I found the solution: Easing Slider Lite – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/easing-slider/

    Simple, straight-forward and no need to tweak anything. Install, click on Slideshow in the admin left menu, load the images (from Media or from upload), enter size, link URL, save. After your images have been loaded, and you see them in the Easing Slider dashboard, you can drag them around to affect their order. you can also edit the transition and pause speeds, navigation button, etc. Finally, open WIDGETS and use the Slideshow where you want.

    Magnificently and brilliantly simple!

    Thanks Brad for all the help anyways… :)

    Yes that’s the one I have written about also and provided the code to display in any genesis_hook position using conditional tags.

    Code not displaying? Grab it on Github.

    No need to add a new widget area.

    There’s NO native slider in WordPress.

    Thanks Brad,

    I keep it in a widget as over time it serves my clients best. It’s simpler for them to not have to edit php files.

    This being said here’s one for you: how could I make the subnav snappier? It kind of lays there for a second before showing submenus. I’d love to have them show content as soon as the mouse hovers.

    Any idea?

    Thanks!

    How about a mega menu with images?

    Not sure I understand, Brad. I guess what I’m aiming at is not only to make something work, but make it work from within the theme itself by a simple adjustment of the code. I looked at the css and js but could not find where to make the change. Should I be asking this on another thread?

    Regards,

    Andre

    Yes. Try another thread but not sure what you’re needing.
