Add plugin js files to footer is not working

Product:

All WonderPlugin Products

Question:

In the plugin, settings menu, I checked the option "Add plugin js scripts to the footer", but the plugin js files are not added to the WordPress footer.

Answer:

The plugin is using WordPress hook wp_footer to print the plugin js scripts to the footer. wp_footer is one of the most essential theme hooks.

The problem is because your WordPress theme does not call the WordPress function wp_footer() and the hook is not enabled. Please contact your WordPress theme provider and ask for how to support the wp_footer hook.

For more details about wp_footer hook and wp_footer() function, please view: https://codex.wordpress.org/Plugin_API/Action_Reference/wp_footer and https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_footer.

Add space after gallery and left align carousel

Product:

Question:

I am using WonderPlugin Portfolio Grid Gallery Commercial Version 6.0C and WordPress 4.4

I need to add space between your plugin and the text below. I've tried adding it in your skin css and in my style.css and have not been able to figure out how to do it either way. Can you tell me how to make that work?

Similarly, with WonderPlugin Carousel Commercial Version 7.0C, I need to move the vertical carousel to the left.

Answer:

1. In the post/page editor, switch to Text mode, then add the following HTML code after the gallery shortcode:

<p style="margin-top:100px;"></p>

The above code will add 100px gap after the gallery.

2. You could add the following HTML code around the carousel shortcode:

<div style="float:left;">
[wonderplugin_carousel id="2"]
</div>
<div style="clear:both;"></div>

8MB Upload Size Limit

Product:

WonderPlugin Gallery, WonderPlugin Slider, WonderPlugin Portfolio Grid Gallery

Question:

Is 8MB the largest upload size you offer with the WordPress portfolio grid gallery? I tried to add a video file but the video was way too large.

Answer:

8MB is a limit from your web server.

You need to change the web server PHP configuration file to change the limit. If you are using a shared web hosting, you need to contact your web hosting provider and ask them to make the change.

Or you can upload the video file to your web server via FTP client software, then add the video URL link directly to the plugin.
