    Never mind I figured it out. For anyone else having this issue. Here is the resolution:

    If you originally had the default set to disable comments in the blog it appears that any blog posts you wrote during that time automatically don’t allow comments. In order to re-activate the ability for people to post comments you have to not only enable all of the settings in my post above BUT you also have to go each individual post, select screen options at the top, select discussion, and then scroll down below the WordPress editor window to discussion and select Allow Comments.

    Resolved.

    Does this conflict affect any other functionality to the site or just the breadcrumbs?

    Just thought I’d touch base with people who participated in this thread. We’ve been using MaxGalleria on almost ALL of our client site builds since October 2013. Most of the quirks that existed have been worked out and the developers have added multiple uploading of images by volume. Captions now work like a dream in all the major browsers even when adding html. Still no album capability but I think that is to come soon and there are easy workarounds for that anyways. The import has worked for all of our conversions from NextGen to MaxGalleria and there were a lot!

    I totally recommend it.

    I’m pretty sure that you can’t use percentages with sprites — we would like to avoid creating different size images for different devices. We definitely DO want the hover state on an iPad.

    Hi Anita, we’ll be using a community theme by Wes – Legacy. There are 5 provinces and out of all the pages we will have on the website only 1 or 2 will need to be different based on province.

    I was able to change the message by accessing the post-template.php file in the wp-includes folder; however, this file probably gets over ridden during a WordPress upgrade. If there is a better way to change the message I’d appreciate the input.

    Thanks.

    Thanks Andrea. That did the trick. Appreciate your expertise with the php.

    Hi Andrea,

    It is HTML5 compatible. It was built by one of the StudioPress community developers and is still featured in their themes area I believe. The widget is displaying at the top of inside pages above the Entry Title. Right now it is perfectly placed. I am using the genesis_before_content_sidebar_wrap Hook in simple hooks. It is the hook that executes immediately before the div block that wraps the content and the primary sidebar (outside the #content-sidebar-wrap div).

    Hey @nutsandbolts, thanks for the help. Right now I’m using Display Widgets by Strategy 11 and I can control which widgets show where that way BUT it would be great NOT to have to use a plugin for this soooo here is the code I used in functions.php:

    genesis_register_sidebar( array(
    	'id'			=> 'inside-page-banner',
    	'name'			=> __( 'Inside Page Banner', 'legacy' ),
    	'description'	=> __( 'This is the section on inside pages right above the page title tag.', 'legacy' ),
    ) );

    and then I used Genesis Simple Hooks and added the following:

    <div class="inside-page-banner">
      <?php dynamic_sidebar( 'inside-page-banner' ); ?>
    </div>

    @wildwebwest, MaxGalleria is not in the WordPress depository. We found it elsewhere; but the developers are very responsive and we love the plugin.

    @sdbroker, just took a look in the Lightbox Plus Colorbox dashboard and there is a tab in the Primary Lightbox Settings that says Size. If you click on the little blue help ? button to the right of the field it talks about setting widths in px or %. Hope that helps.

    Hey @wildwebwest, yes I took the MaxGalleria importer for a spin and it worked like a darn!

    @sdbroker, Yes it is one of the options we are testing out and using. I’ve tried ours on a mobile phone (iPhone) and iPad and it scales down nicely but that probably has more to do with my child theme CSS than anything else. FYI, we remove the responsive code and build an addt’l specific mobile design for our clients that integrates into the same dashboard. Here’s a link to our demo of the Lightbox Plus Colorbox Plugin: http://www.originalginger.com/demos/legacy1140/gallery-native-wordpress/

    BTW, if any of you want to set a specific size of thumb for your gallery you can easily add a simple line of code to your functions.php identifying your new image. In our example code below we named it gallery-thumbnail:

    add_image_size( 'gallery-thumbnail', 300, 300, TRUE );

    Then when you create and add your native wordpress media gallery you just add an addt’l bit of code to the shortcode as follows:

    [gallery link="file" ids="480,481,482,483,485,484" size="gallery-thumbnail"]

    I have not yet tested this cross browser. No time today. If anyone else checks it out please let me know.

    Dev, which plugin are you asking about? If you use the Lightbox Plus Colorbox plugin it allows you to set the Lightbox image to whatever size you would like it to be; for example, you could indicate width and height in % for responsive design or use pixels, whichever you want.

    If you are referring to the thum size in the native wordpress media gallery, you can alter thumb size via the media settings but you will have to either re-upload your images to resize the thumbs OR use a plugin that regenerates thumbnails. I hope that answers your question?

    Ruairi, thank you sir for that great info. I’ve been playing around with the cleaner gallery and it is something I think we will use. It is simple and as you say I like that it is less likely to conflict or break code. It is also good to know there is support available.

    Okay, I’ve sourced another alternative that is very simple and uses the native WordPress Media Gallery. I’ve installed a plugin called Lightbox Plus Colorbox by Dan Zappone. It is not so user friendly as NextGen but it does the trick. The dashboard is very simple and does give you some lightbox styles to choose from. Alternatively, you can add custom CSS styles which is great.

    I checked it cross browser on the latest version of Opera, Chrome, Safari, IE, and Firefox as well as the iPad. Works fine. No issues. Loads quickly and I’m using it on WordPress 3.7 with no issue either.

    BTW, I also added some html so that two captions below one of my images would be links to other pages and it worked with no issues although the captions don’t show in the lightbox — only in the original window. This is a good find until Dave can address the stacking issue happening in MaxGalleria in certain browsers.
