Allow Editors access the WordPress gallery plugin

Question:

I have recently discovered and tried WonderPlugin Gallery and it is clearly the best gallery plugin that I have ever tried. So, thanks a lot for a such plugin. However, I found a quite annoying issue: it is not possible to handle galleries using a non-administrator account, so users with "editor" rights can not create nor modify galleries. Therefore I would like to know if you plan to add a such feature in a near future?

Answer:

This feature is supported in new version 1.6.

In the Settings page, you can you can set the minimum user role to Administrator, Editor or Author.

Dimension of WordPress Gallery Player

Question:

I bought the commercial version of WordPress Gallery Plugin a few days ago, and am getting up to speed.
Quick question, the playback viewer in WonderPlugin is 1000 x 556. Is that fixed? Is there a way to increase the dimensions?

Answer:

In the Plugin dashboard, gallery editor, step 3, Options tab, Gallery Options. If you have checked the option "Support responsive web design", the gallery will automatically resize itself to its container.

If you did not check the option, it will use the width and height defined in the above "General Options".

Please uncheck the option "Open current image in Lightbox", then the link and target fields will be enabled.

Audio Player with Larger Image

Question:

I've downloaded the free version for testing, and I want to upgrade to the commercial version. However, before I buy, I want to know if

1. Can I change the size of the thumbnail in the Box player skin from 100x100 to something larger? I don't find this specified in your Skin CSS file, so not sure what the custom css would be.

2. If not, can the Lightbox skin show a playlist?

Thanks for your help. If I can use a larger image, I will purchase the plugin.

Answer:

All of the skins are fine tuned. If you change the size of the thumbnail in the player, you need to adjust CSS of other parts accordingly, which may be difficult.

But you can add a playlist to the Lightbox skin.

1. In the Step 3, Options tab, click Skin Options button, change the Height to Auto.
2. In the Step 3, Options tab, click Advanced Options button, then enter following text to the Advanced options:

data-showtracklist="true"

A demo is as following:

Change font, size and color of carousel thumbnail labels

Question:

We are considering buying your WordPress Carousel plugin but before we do, I need to know that you can change the thumbnail labels globally to a different font/size/colour and also how you go about writing the custom CSS, i.e. list of ids and classnames.

Answer:

We don't have a list of ids and classnames. You can use Firebug https://getfirebug.com/ or Google Chrome Developer Tools to find out the id or the classname you are interested.

To change font, size and color of the thumbnail labels, you can goto Step 3, Options tab, click Skin CSS button, then change the CSS.

How to open video Lightbox on page load

Question:

Support,

I am looking for a solution for displaying a vimeo video in a lightbox that launches with the page load. I am looking at purchasing your commercial version. Is the auto launch feature available or is there additional code I could pay you to develop to accomplish this?

Answer:

You can do it with WonderPlugin Lightbox Plugin.

You can add the following JavaScript code to your page or post:

<script type="text/javascript">
	jQuery("document").ready(function(){   
            setTimeout(function() { 
                if (wonderpluginLightbox)
                    wonderpluginLightbox.showLightbox(4, 'https://player.vimeo.com/video/1084537', 'Big Buck Bunny by Blender Foundation');
            }, 3000);
	});
</script>
<a class="wplightbox"></a>

You can view the demo page: https://www.wonderplugin.com/wordpress-lightbox/open-video-lightbox-on-page-load/

Here is the definition of the function showLightbox:

function showLightbox(type, href, title, width, height, webm, ogg, thumbnail, description);

Here is the definition of the function argument type:

0: image, 1: Flash SWF, 2: MP4 video, 3: YouTube video, 4: Vimeo video; 5: PDF, 7: Webpage

So if you want to open a YouTube video, you can change the line to:

wonderpluginLightbox.showLightbox(3, 'https://www.youtube.com/embed/j32YM7UvvGk', 'WordPress Carousel Plugin');

Only showing up once

To prevent the lightbox popup from appearing in the current web browser session for the second time, you can use the following code:

<script type="text/javascript">
    jQuery("document").ready(function(){  

            var is_popped = false;
            var cookies = document.cookie ? document.cookie.split(';') : [];
            for (var i in cookies)
            {
                var parts = $.trim(cookies[i]).split('=');
                if (parts.length && parts[0] == 'wplightboxpopup')
                {
                    is_popped = true;
                    break;
                }
            }

            if (is_popped)
              return;
            
            setTimeout(function() {
                if (wonderpluginLightbox)
                {
                    wonderpluginLightbox.showLightbox(4, 'https://player.vimeo.com/video/1084537', 'Big Buck Bunny by Blender Foundation');
                    document.cookie = 'wplightboxpopup=1;path=/';
                }
            }, 3000);
    });
</script>
<a class="wplightbox"></a>

Open Audio Player in Fancybox

Question:

Im a new WordPress developer and developing a website for my client where client provided me "WonderPlugin Audio Player"

The requirement is that the player need to be play inside the fancy-box ,I implemented it but it generating few error and not playing the file.

TypeError: this.flashObject is null

...is.flashObject=AmazingSWFObject.getObjectById("amazingflashaudioplayer-"+this.id...

What I do in such a case please need help on this matter

Does the plugin support inside fancybox?

Answer:

You can try the following way to do it:

1. Download Amazing Audio Player application: http://amazingaudioplayer.com/. It has the same JavaScript core as WonderPlugin Audio Player and can create same players. But it's a Windows/Mac application.

2. Create your player in the application, in Publish dialog, choose "Publish to folder". This will create all files for the audio player.

3. Upload all of the files, including all of the subfolders, to your web server.

4. Use fancybox to open the file "audioplayer.html".

If you are an experienced WordPress developer, you can also do it with WonderPlugin Audio Player:

1. Create a special WordPress page template, which does not have the normal header and footer.

2. Create a WordPress page with the above template, then paste the audio player shortcode to this page. This will create a page with only the player inside.

3. Open the above page with fancybox, or with WonderPlugin Lightbox Plugin https://www.wonderplugin.com/wordpress-lightbox/.

Play Video Automatically

Question:

I am using the WordPress Gallery plugin. What I saw the gallery, in the slider the video automatically starts, but on the iPad Air it doesn’t. The slider waits until you manually start the video.

Is there a way to start the video automatically on an iPad Air, or is this not possible?

Answer:

It's not possible. Video auto play is disabled on iPhone, iPad and Android. It's a limit by the devices.

Thumbnail Image for WordPress Audio Player

Question:

I've just installed this plugin for WordPress.

I'm having an issue with adding an image for an album of songs. For some reason, all I'm seeing is part of the background colour of the image. Does the image need to be a particular size?

The size of the actual image is 1024 by 1024. All I get is part of the white background and NOT the actual CD image.

Answer:

The plugin does not resize your image, so it just displays the top-left corner of your image, which is a white background.

Please resize your image to 100*100 with photoshop or any image resizing software, then add it to the plugin.
